Katy Perry covers the July issue of Vogue, out June 25, and in the feature, the singer opens up about her love life.
As for her ex-husband Russell Brand? She says, "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." OUCH!
When the writer says that Brand, a comedian, is hysterical, she replies, "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."
She also said that he wasn't edited out of the footage of her film Katy Perry: Part of Me. He wasn't there, so he couldn't have been edited out. OUCH, again.
She also reveals that the balance of power shifted, saying, "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."
Okay, so there is more to the story than EITHER of the former parties in the relationship are admitting.
Regarding John Mayer, it was not a rebound. Perry says, "No, not at all. No, I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him... All I can say about that relationship is that he's got a beautiful mind. Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds."
