Katy Perry: I still like London boys
Katy Perry: I still like London boys

Katy Perry has admitted in an interview with The Mirror that despite her split with comedian Russell Brand, she still likes London boys.   

She explained, “I still believe in love, most definitely. And I still like London boys”, before clarifying: “Except one.”

The popstar whose had hits with ‘California Girls’ and ‘Teenage Dream’ spoke about how seeing films from her divorce in her upcoming movie, Part Of Me, made her feel. She said, “there were things that made my tummy turn when I saw them because I had already lived them and really didn’t want to live them again. But I thought maybe if I showed I got through the problems, other people wouldn’t feel so alone.

She then added : “The whole movie is about me overcoming obstacles, my upbringing, the guys in suits from the record labels and then my personal struggle, going through it and landing on my feet. The message is pretty simple - it’s ‘be yourself and you can be anything.”

We previously reported about Russell Brand's weird motives for breaking up with Katy Perry. Speaking in her new documentary film Katy Perry: Part of Me, she explained: “I thought to myself, ‘When I find that person that’s going to be my life partner, I won’t ever have to choose [between the partner and my career]. They won’t be threatened or have weird motives.’ Then I started to realise, that’s not true.”

Singer Katy Perry has suggested that her ex Russell Brand was threatened by her career and had ‘weird motives’ in her documentary.

Katy split from British comedian Russell in December after just 14 months of marriage, and although Katy thought he was ‘the one’, she admitted that work commitments got in the way.

Speaking in her new documentary film Katy Perry: Part of Me, she explained: “I thought to myself, ‘When I find that person that’s going to be my life partner, I won’t ever have to choose [between the partner and my career]. They won’t be threatened or have weird motives.’ Then I started to realise, that’s not true.”

Katy has now moved on and is dating Florence + the Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd, but says she did everything in her power to save her marriage, before finally acknowledging it was over.

She said: “I have that same belief system with everything, from career to my life to my personal life, everything. And I will do everything it takes to not fail. And I did everything it took, but it still failed.”

Katy’s forthcoming 3D movie features footage shot around the time she split from Russell, including scenes where she is crying on a bed, despite Russell asking her to cut out the scenes involving him. Katy has previously revealed she wanted to include the clips to show people they can bounce back from their difficulties.

She said: “I think if you were to see the movie and it was completely avoided, you’d think, ‘Hmm that’s strange, I know something else happened in her life last year.’

“So I wanted to handle it delicately with the most integrity I could and show, ‘Yeah I’m going through the same situation that half of America goes through and somehow I landed on my feet, so you don’t have to lay down and die like you think.’ Just because you’re in the spotlight doesn’t mean you get to dodge the curveballs - they’re actually bigger.”

Russell Brand thinks his marriage to Katy Perry ‘did work out’, despite the fact that it only lasted for 14 months. 

The British comedian admitted that it’s ‘really good’ that the pair are not together anymore, explaining: ‘When I was married it did work out in a way because I was married for some time and that’s really good and then you’re not married and that’s really good. You just have to have acceptance of things.’

The Rock of Ages star said he feels ‘really good’ despite splitting up with the gorgeous Firework singer in December, and admits he still loves the brunette beauty: ‘She’s a person that I love but now this a new time. We were suited for that amount of time but this is a new time.’

The funnyman joked that he was finding divorce proceedings difficult - because of the paperwork. He laughed: “I suppose the divorce is difficult because of the admin. There’s a lot of admin.”

Since splitting with Katy, the 37-year-old star has been improving his ‘sexual charisma’ by regularly meditating and doing yoga.

He explained: ‘I’m in tune with some really beautiful things. I don’t want to sound like a lunatic but if you meditate and do yoga you become attuned to a different energy that is constant and very, very beautiful. Some people call it God, some people call it karma or the cosmos, but I call it sexual charisma.’

Russell’s latest film role sees him star in the movie adaptation of 1980s musical Rock of Ages alongside Alec Baldwin, and the 30 Rock star reminded him of a ‘big, hairy, powerful, sexy uncle.’

Speaking on UK television show, ‘Lorraine’, he added: ‘Nearly all of my scenes were with Alec Baldwin and he’s lovely. He’s like a big, hairy, powerful, sexy uncle which in the wrong circumstances can be a terrible thing but in my circumstances it was lovely. He’s really friendly and really clever and he gave me wonderful advice.’

Katy Perry Part Of Me: 3D To Feature Split From Russell Brand Despite His Protests

Katy Perry is apparently planning to feature all the deails from her split from Russell Brand in her new movie Part Of Me: 3D - despite the comedian’s supposed protests.

Katy recently told US chat show host Ellen DeGeneres that the flick would “tastefully” mention her divorce from British comic Russell Brand, with reports now suggesting Russell asked that any footage involving their relationship be left out of the final edit.

However, The Sun newspaper reports that Katy put forward Russell’s request to producers, but it was decided that the film wouldn’t flow properly without any clips of their romance.

Russell allegedly called the Wide Awake singer a few weeks ago to find out what snippets had made the finished product.

A source told the newspaper: “When she first decided to make the movie in 2010, Russell agreed to be filmed on the condition he got to see the final edit.

“Being a fly-on-the-wall documentary, he knew full well that it was going to be warts and all – and wasn’t best comfortable with that. But Katy persuaded him to do it.”

The source added: “Now they have broken up, she can keep whatever she wants in the film.”

Katy recently addressed her forthcoming movie in an interview with MTV US, saying that her fans will see her at her most “vulnerable” in the motion picture.

Katy Perry: ‘Marriage To Russell Brand Was Extremely Fun’

Pop princess Katy Perry says her marriage to British comedian Russell Brand was “extremely fun”.
 
Katy admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that although their marriage didn’t work out, she enjoyed most of their time together.

Speaking about her new movie ‘Katy Perry: Part Of Me 3D’, which documents her time with Russell, the 27-year-old beauty said: “Mostly it’s about how I got there and the ride along the way which can be bumpy but mostly it was extremely fun.”

Katy - whose divorce from Russell will officially be made final next month - says she decided to document her failed marriage in the film to show people she’s not perfect.

Appearing on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, Katy said: “I thought it was important for me. First of all, I thought it was important to show everything in between. I think sometimes people think that we’re perfect and we know we’re not perfect, at all.”

Katy continued: “I think it’s important to start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dream you always have to be perfect or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world. So that’s why I decided to put everything into the film… in the most tasteful way.” 

Katy Perry Takes Nan As Date After Split With Robert Ackroyd

After splitting with Florence and The Machine guitarist Rober Ackroyd, Katy enlisted super glamorous 91-year-old Ann Hudson as her date.

The 27-year-old Part Of Me singer even coordinated her shimmering floor-length gown with her smokin’ grandmother’s diamante walking stick. Ahead of the event, Katy teased on Twitter: ‘My date to tonight’s Billboard Music Awards is hotter than the Las Vegas weather. SMOKIN’!’

Later in the evening Katy was crowned winner of the Spotlight Award after she became the only female artist in history to have had five number one hits from the same album. Accepting her gong on stage, she said: ‘The real rock star here is my grandmother.. She’s 91 years old and she’s from Las Vegas. I can’t wait to go and do shots with you after this.’

Following her split from Brit comedian Russell Brand, Katy hooked up with with Robert Ackroyd at the Coachella Festival last month. But the singer, who also performed her new single Wide Awake at the ceremony last night, is reluctant to get into yet another long distance relationship and has apparently cooled things off with the tattooed musician.

A source told the Daily Mirror: ‘Rob was the first guy Katy had been with since splitting from Russell. She was still extremely fragile but had told pals their two weekends at Coachella together made her feel sexy and alive again. Even when Rob left to continue touring ­America with Florence they would speak on the phone up to three times a day and she’d be constantly texting him.’

But the parallels between Robert and her relationship with the British comic were just too much for her to handle.

‘The main thing which led to her split with Russell was spending the majority of her marriage to him on tour, and she said dating Rob felt like being with ­Russell all over again,’ the source continued.

‘It’s a shame as they both liked each other but Katy wants to be able to have a relationship with someone she isn’t constantly having to work out what time zone they’re in. Rob was gutted but Katy said she didn’t want to get in too deep and then break his heart so it was best to cut things off before they got serious.’

Miley Cyrus stole the show at the Billboard Music Awards with an eye-catching white jacket outfit that exposed her bare bra-free chest.

The 19-year-old star wore nothing but a gaping jacket and zebra-stripe heels at the event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas last night (20.05.12). She was sporting a 1960s hairdo, as opposed to her usual straight tresses.

Miley was joined on the white carpet by singing rivals Katy Perry and Taylor Swift - who was named Billboard Woman of the Year and wore a semi see-through red dress. Brit singer Adele was the biggest winner on the night, taking home 12 prizes, including Top Artist, Top Female Artist and Top Pop Album for ‘21’.

Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was reduced to tears as she accepted an award for her late mother at the ceremony, and she said she felt ”blessed” to have been a part of the singer’s life. She wept as she said: ”I really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all. Not just from when it was good but when it was bad, too. Thank you for showing that much love, because she deserved it. I’m just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman’s life. There will never be another one, ever.”

Other winners included Katy Perry picking up the Spotlight Award after tying Michael Jackson’s record of having five number one hits from the same album, ‘Teenage Dream’, while Lil’ Wayne was named Billboard Man of the Year.

Russell Brand has revealed that he “still loves” his estranged wife Katy Perry.

The British comedian and the pop star are in the process of getting divorced after their 14-month marriage broke down last December. Despite being the one who filed the papers at the end of last year, Russell insists he has nothing but affection for Katy.

In an interview with chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, Russell said: “I still love her as a human being. But, sometimes when you’re in a relationship, I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything. I was very happy to be married with her. She’s such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her.”

Meanwhile, Katy is thought to be dating Florence  and The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, after they were seen kissing at a recent music festival. In fact, the relationship appears to be going so well that Katy is even planning on spending more of her time in the UK in order to be with the tattooed hunk.

Russell has said that he doesn’t harbour any bitter feelings towards his ex-lover, though, adding: “You can’t absolutely make everything the way you want it to be in life. Sometimes things are just different and then you just move with that and try and remain in contact with what is beautiful about yourself and each other with any situation. [Katy is still] a person I still consider to be beautiful… I have nothing but positivity for her.”

However, Russell caused a stir late last week when he decided to unfollow Katy on Twitter.

Katy Perry: ‘I’m taking a f**king vacation!’

Katy Perry has been busy jet setting all over the world recently, but the ‘Part Of Me’ singer plans to take a break from music following the release of her next single ‘Wide Awake’.

The singer is due to unveil the track ‘Wide Awake’, which is taken from the recent special edition of her second album ‘Teenage Dream’, later this month. Speaking at the NARM Music Awards, where she was named Artist Of The Year, Katy revealed that she was looking forward to having a holiday.

“I swear, after this song, I’m taking a f**king vacation,” Katy said.
 
The I Kissed A Girl star also used her acceptance speech to pay special thanks to the music industry for helping her second album to achieve so much success: “I have to say that I do a lot to sell my records. I do the right things… I work very hard! I like to sell out in all the best ways.”

Katy has had a turbulent year so far, after splitting up with British comic Russel Brand. She has, however, wasted no time in finding a new man, after being spotted kissing Florence and the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd. Katy has reportedly said that she will be spending more time in the UK in order to spend time with the tattooed hunk.

‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’ was released earlier this year and features the singer’s original album as well as new tracks.

It was only in January that we heard the news hit of Katy Perry and Russell Brand's split but, five months on, Katy appears to have found a hot new man.

According to a source speaking to more! magazine, Katy Perry has “marked out her territory” with Florence + The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.

The I Kissed A Girl singer is said to be smitten with the musician, so much so that she is apparently keen to spend time with him, even if that means travelling to the UK and spending more of her time there.

“I think Katy’s marked out her territory with Rob. It’s clear she’s really into him, and wants to join him when the band returns to the UK next month. She must know that if Rob gets home and she’s not there with him, other things might happen,” the source said.

“She’s willing to spend as much time in the UK as she can. Rob’s a proper British lad who loves going down the pub and watching football. He’s not Hollywood at all. That’s why Katy likes him so much. I’m sure she learnt a lot from trying and failing to make a long-distance relationship work with Russell,” the insider added.

Could Katy have found love again, or is this just a high-profile rebound? Regardless of how things go with her new man, if reports are to be believed she could always give her marriage to British comic Russell Brand another go. Russell has apparently been sending Katy emails saying he gave up on their marriage too soon.

This may be too little, too late by the looks of thigs, Russell!
