Katy Perry Opens Up About Split From Russell Brand
Many of Katy Perry’s fans were absolutely shocked when the singer announced her split from husband, Russell Brand. In fact, many had speculated that she was planning time off to focus on starting a family and spending time with her man.
It’s been nearly six months since they broke up and, really, it has been a bit of a mystery since the pair have remained fairly tight-lipped about their divorce.
The 27-year-old superstar explained that the biggest strain on her relationship with the 37-year-old comedian was her busy touring schedule even though she used much of her downtime between shows to sneak off to see her husband (as can be seen in her new 3D movie, Part of Me).
In one heartbreaking scene in her documentary, Perry is showing crying uncontrollably while she’s getting ready to go on stage and then, suddenly, she pulls herself together, utters the words “Start time” and performs for her fans.
She also says: "I thought to myself, 'When I find that person that's going to be my life partner, I won't ever have to choose [between the partner and my career] … they won't be threatened or have weird motives. Then I started to realize, that's not true. That fairytale I had is not true for me right now."
She also states that she really did not want to give up on her marriage: "I have that same belief system with everything, from career to my life to my personal life, everything. And I will do everything it takes to not fail. And I did everything it took but it still failed."
Perry fans can get a behind-the-scenes look at her life when her movie, Part of Me, debuts on July 5, 2012.
