Ouch! That’s got to hurt just a little bit! Katy Perry and Russell Brand were married for 14 months before they announced that they were divorcing, and now Katy is opening up about what went wrong with her marriage. The singer is on the cover of the July issue of Vogue Magazine and in the interview the singer reveals how Brand asked her for a divorce, saying;
“He’s a very smart 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.”
She went on to discuss Brand’s sense of humour, saying he’s;
“Hysterical in some ways. Until 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. So. Hysterical to a point. I mean, 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. You saw that in the movie.” Katy Perry: Part of Me, a documentary released last year that has garnered $32 million worldwide to date, covers the period before, during, and after her time with Brand. “That wasn’t edited to leave footage out—there wasn’t any footage of him.”
She also opens up about why she think he ended the marriage;
“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 the equalness. 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. 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.”
Wow, that is certainly telling, don’t you think? I wonder why she’s decided to open up about the divorce now? Both of them had seemed to take the high road but it seems that Katy has something she wanted to say! What do you think of Katy’s comments?
