Katy Perry: Divorce killed dream

  • Print

Katy Perry says her divorce was the "death of a dream".

The 'Roar' hitmaker was left heartbroken when her marriage to Russell Brand ended in 2011 after just 14 months and she says the split was incredibly "traumatic".

She told Rolling Stone magazine: "It was emotionally traumatic for me. It was the death of a dream. I was in fairytale land, and the reality of it wasn't so."

However, the 29-year-old beauty - who has subsequently dated John Mayer and recently been romantically linked with producer Diplo - doesn't want to seem "desperate" by continually talking about her failed marriage.

She added: "But I don't really like talking about it anymore, because it feels like a thousand lifetimes ago, and also it makes me look desperate, like I need it for attention."

These days, the 'Part of Me' hitmaker claims she is more attracted to "colorful personalities" than any specific type of person.

She said: "I'm interested in colorful personalities. Look, I can't be perfect. I don't know. I think you love who you love. You learn over time. I mean, each one has been different. I tweeted the other day that I'm just looking for the prince that fits my glass Jordans slipper."
