Katy Perry’s new concert film Part Of Me promises to show a raw emotional version to the pop star. In anticipation of the film, Katy gets pretty honest about her short-lived marriage to Russell Brand and why she pushed so hard to make her film her way and not the studio way.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Katy remembers going through the break-up during her “Teenage Dreams” world tour and barely being able to go onstage.
“What was going on in my personal life was so overwhelming that I had to bend over to let those tears fall straight out of my eye sockets and not my false lashes just as I’m about to go up on that ramp and sing ‘Teenage Dream,’” says katy, adding “‘I had to smack myself across the face and say, ‘These problems are my problems, they are not my audience’s problems, learn to separate that.’”
But the songstress remains optimistic about love.
“I still believe in love and marriage. I’ve just learned lessons along the way. I regret nothing,” says the star.
Katy swears by her honesty. She’d rather bare it all than hide behind the music. However, she admits that two years ago she “wouldn’t feel completely comfortable with people seeing me crying or looking like a hot mess.”
The singer also revealed she pressured the studio into releasing her “grittier” version of the trailer, rather than their more clean cut version.
“The feedback is, people don’t like to see me cry,” she says, “and I don’t want to alienate my fans, but I wanted a trailer that I would be moved by as well.”
