Katy Perry is finally opening up about the pain she went through when her ex-husband Russell Brand handed her divorce papers back in 2011.
It’s truly a test of what doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger, because the 28-year-old “Roar” singer is revealing that she went through hell.
“I was in bed for about two weeks,” Perry admits. “I was pretty f–ked, yes. It hurt a lot — I got a good knock.”
She then goes on to describe her time off as a violent altercation.
“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,” she tells the Sunday Times. “I had to face the reality that things are not always on cloud nine.”
Things are looking up for Katy now. Her breakup sparked some great music featured on her new album Prism (out today) and she’s in love again with her new boyfriend John Mayer.
