Katy Perry has had quite a career, and quite a love life as well, like any other Hollywood celebrity. The Roar singer is currently engaged to Orlando Bloom and the couple shares a daughter Daisy Dove Bloom. However, the Queen of Camp has been through several ups and downs in her past relationships, having experienced a short marriage with her ex-husband Russell Brand as well, one that only lasted a couple of years. Back in 2014, the American Idol judge opened up about her breakups and singlehood and shared slices of her life with her fans.
A broken marriage that helped shape future relationships
Katy Perry became Cosmopolitan’s first global cover girl in 2014 and was interviewed by comedian, and talk show host Chelsea Handler. The Dark Horse singer opened up about her broken marriage with Russell Brand and how it made her more mature.
“Sometimes you have to go through all this s–t to get your grips on life and figure out what the next boundaries in your love life are going to be. You have to go through the mud in order to find that peaceful place. In the long run, it was necessary for me to have more of a teammate.”
However, Brand is not the only ex-lover who was brought up during the interview.
Katy Perry talks ex and s*x
The Chained to the Rhythm singer had just broken up with John Mayer at the time of the interview and did not hold back to discuss her most recent ex with Handler.
“I have a lot of respect for [John] still, and I know it goes both ways. There’s no bad blood, but I’m sure there will be inspired songs.”
We are getting Taylor Swift vibes here and it gets even more interesting when you find out that Mayer also dated the Lover songstress, who wrote the song Dear John about the singer-songwriter.
Quite naturally, Mayer was not a big fan of the idea of letting himself become a negative muse again. He responded to Perry’s words, “You’re supposed to write songs. You’re just not supposed to tell everyone you’re doing it.”
The next question put forth to the Feels collaborator was about the longest span of time she had spent dry, that is, without s*x. Perry replied pertly, “Maybe six months or a year. I don’t stay single for long.”
The Harleys in Hawaii singer finally got lucky in love with The Lord of the Rings actor. The two share quite a playful dynamic where they keep roasting each other any chance they get. Mark of true love if there ever was one.
