    Ouch! Katy Perry reportedly changed the lyrics of her new song "Part of Me," which she performed at the Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 12), in order to reflect her recent split from soon-to-be-ex-husband Russell Brand. The lyrics are rather brutal, where she mentions giving back the ring and taking back herself in the process.

    While "Part of Me" was written in 2010 and a version that leaked online included the line "You can keep the dog/I never liked him anyway," the New York Post reports that Perry changed the line to "You can keep the diamond ring/ It don't mean nothing anyway" and that's the version that is for sale on iTunes.

    Vicious, right?

    Buy "Part of Me" at iTunes.

    What do you think of Katy Perry taking a verbal swipe at Russell Brand in her lyrics?
