We’ve heard that chivalry’s dead, but we didn’t actually believe it until now (despite the myriad warnings Carrie Bradshaw left us). In this month’s edition of Vogue, Katy Perry’s cover story unveils the nasty truth about her catastrophe of a divorce with crazed comic Russell Brand.
We knew that Brand was just a tad off (to say the least) after he revealed he’s had nine orgasms in one evening, but after hearing the abrupt way he broke it off with his the ex-wife Perry, we’re convinced that men need a tutorial in proper life etiquette.
The Firework singer unveiled how Brand cut off their marriage via text message. Yes, you read that right: he ended a marriage once full of sweet, sweet love with a simple compilation of words sent via iPhone. How lame is that?
Perry spoke fondly of Brand to Vogue, saying he was a”magical man and I was in love with him when I married him,” but the pop star then continued to disclose the ugly truth regarding the dissolution of her marriage. She shares, “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.” Yikes! The Popchips spokeswoman goes on to rationalize that, at the time, she was overwhelmed with touring and was constantly out on the road, which definitely could have negatively affected her marriage. But come on, there’s no excuse to ever end a relationship over text message. Man up, Brand!
In addition to the text message debacle, the boob-sparking singer also confessed that she’s still in love with John Mayer. “I was madly in love with him,” Perry tells Vogue. “I still am madly in love with him.” But now, she definitively shares, the relationship is “over.” “All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind,” she says. “Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.” (Side note: “Beautiful Mind, Tortured Soul” would be a great name for her next hit jam.)
Katy Perry sure has had a bountiful plethora of troubles in the love department… maybe she should call up Taylor Swift and the two romantic messes can write a demoralizing duet about love. The two musicians do have a lot in common — shout out to you, John Mayer!
