Katy Perry is still talking about her 2011 divorce from former husband Russell Brand.
The singer opened up to U.K.’s Sunday Times, admitting, ”I was in bed for about two weeks. I was pretty f–ked, yes. It hurt a lot — I got a good knock.”
The comedian served Perry with divorce papers after just 14 months of marriage–which came as a complete shock to the 28-year-old,
“What I wanted to call this record at first was Adult Reality, because Teenage Dream was me so high on that cotton-candy cloud, and then it’s like I got punched in the face and kicked down the stairs a couple of times,” Katy tells the Sunday Times. “I had to face the reality that things are not always on cloud nine,” adding, “I was down and out, I’d lost hope, all my confidence had been shattered.”
The “Roar” hitmaker dishes, “Unfortunately, although I had a lot of outward self-identity, I didn’t have the inner kind, I hadn’t built that up. My self-worth was in someone else’s hands, which is never a good idea, because it can be taken from you at any time. And it was, and it was shattered.”
We’re proud of you Katy!
