Katy Perry Tells Vogue That Russell Brand Asked for a Divorce Via Text + She Still Loves John Mayer

Katy Perry

Katy Perry makes her debut as a Vogue cover girl in July, playing a high-fashion siren/farmer’s daughter (we think). But in the accompanying interview, she talks about the loves of her life: ex-husband Russell Brand and on-and-off boyfriend John Mayer.

When asked about Brand, Perry responded with the shocking revelation, “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.”

Not just a text message breakup, but one on New Year’s Eve? Dude. Harsh.

(Also, so much for those reports that Katy’s been crying on Russell’s shoulder about John.)

“I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day,” Perry revealed, making us think she’s just waiting for Brand to do something blackmail-worthy.

Thankfully, Katy has finally stopped blaming herself for the divorce, admitting, “I let go and I was like: This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that.”

What she hasn’t moved on from, however, is John Mayer (some say they’re even back together).

“All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind. Beautiful mind, tortured soul,” Perry mused. “I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.”

The full issue of Vogue can be picked up on newsstands near you on June 25. Or flipped through at your doctor’s office in August.
