Katy Perry is opening up about her boyfriend, John Mayer, in the November issue of W Magazine. She also shed some light on her divorce from ex-husband Russell Brand.
The Prism singer, 28, gushes that she had a crush on Mayer even before they started dating and it was just a plus that they “fit together.”
She told W, “I actually am dating my crush. I had a crush on him for a long time and it so happens we fit together great."
When asked if she liked being married, she said “Of course. I really loved it. It was a new, fun, exciting journey. But I like how I am now, and I think all things happen for a reason.”
As much as she loved being married, perhaps she just wasn’t married to the right person. She explained to the Sunday Times that she had a pretty rough time splitting from her husband. “I was pretty f***ed, yes. It hurt a lot - I got a good knock,” she said of their 2011 divorce.
Her new single “Roar” has a lot to do with her journey from being “shattered” by the split to where she is now in her life.
“I was down and out, I'd lost hope, all of my confidence had been shattered. Unfortunately, although I had a lot of outward self-identity, I didn't have the inner kind, I hadn't built that up,” she said. “My self-worth was in someone else's hands, which is never a good idea, because it can be taken from you at any time. And it was, and it was shattered.”
