Katy Perry and John Mayer broke up briefly in the spring. Perry explains, in her January 2014 Marie Claire cover story, why that happened.
While she calls her BF "a fantastic partner... He's got a brilliant, brilliant mind. It's a rad, mature relationship," she shared that the spring split was necessary.
"I took a break from my boyfriend, not one that I wanted," she said. "It was like a splash of cold water to search inward on what was going on with me."
She furthered, "That is what led me to this new awakening, this realizing, 'If I don't do some self-love, I'm not going to be able to keep the love that I want.'"
That Katy Perry -- she is so self-aware.
"I still needed to deal with all of my ex-husband stuff. I hadn't. It's almost like if I kept talking about it, it would seem like I actually cared about it. I don't," she finished, revealing that Brand wanted to have kids and she wasn't ready.
The issue lands December 16.
