The dust has settled and the new has worn off on the Katy Perry/ Russell Brand divorce and now it’s time for the details to leak out. Starting with this insightful interview by Katy in Vogue.
I can not wait for the bits she is saving in her vault to come out. No doubt it involves another woman. There is more in the interview about how she still love John Mayer…read it here.
**I am shocked and saddened to learn that Russell is text-dumper. Thought he was all deep and in touch and better than that. Turns out he’s just a man-child pissed off that he wasn’t getting his way.
She said: ‘He’s a very smart man, a magical man and I was in love with him when I married him. Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.’
Katy accepts their work commitments and especially her hectic schedule for her California Dreams Tour contributed to the failure of the marriage.
However, the 28-year-old singer has hinted there is more to the split than has been revealed, and has suggested 38-year-old Russell couldn’t cope being married to a strong woman like her.
Katy said: ‘I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could.
‘At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, “I can’t handle it.”
‘He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting.
She hints there’s more to it, adding: ‘I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day.
‘I let go and I was like, “This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me.” So I have moved on from that.’
When asked about Brand’s sense of humour, she thought he was ‘hysterical’ until she caught him making fun at her expense.
She said: ‘He started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows.’
