In celebrity quotes that don’t make sense, Katy Perry gave a somewhat incoherent statement about her mom thanking the high heavens that she and her ex-husband Russell Brand split.
While appraising her belief in marriage equality, Katy somehow segued that into this: “My mom thanks God every day for my divorce.”
Like a joke that’s funnier in your head than in recital, maybe you just had to be there?
Here’s the full quote, from The Sun: “I thank God every day for having made us all the same way and I pray for anyone who fights for freedom of speech…I'm pro-gay marriage and want equality between genders. My mom thanks God every day for my divorce."
Maybe she’s saying something about divorce equality as well? Who knows and maybe we shouldn’t think so hard on it. After all this is the same singer who has asked us many times before if we ever feel like a plastic bag.
Katy and Russell split in December 2011, which means knocking on the pearly gates roughly 580 times since then has been a prayer from Mary Perry exalting "My daughter divorced! Hallelujah!”
