Katy Perry is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Vogue magazine. Inside, she dishes the details on her former marriage to British comedian Russell Brand and her newest ex-boyfriend John Mayer.
Katy revealed that she and Russell haven’t spoken since 2011 – when he let her know about the impending divorce proceedings.
She said, “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 say, “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.”
She continued, “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.”
Katy also talked on the subject of romance with John Mayer and denies that she dated him for revenge purposes. She said, “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 he’s got a beautiful mind. Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.”
