Firework singer Katy Perry revealed this week that her forthcoming live concert film will mention her divorce from British comic Russell Brand, although the reference will be a “tasteful” one.
The concert movie, Part Of Me: 3D, is due out in the USA on the 4th July weekend, and Perry said on the Ellen DeGeneres Show that she wanted her fans to get as accurate an insight into her life as possible – including the downsides, such as her divorce from Brand.
“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,” she said.
“I think it’s important to start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dreams, 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.”
The divorce between the celebrity couple has largely been an amicable one, with no lurid tabloid tales of screaming matches or courtroom battles between US divorce lawyers. Last week, Brand himself appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he admitted that he still loves his ex-wife “as a human being, but, sometimes when you’re in a relationship, I suppose it doesn’t work out.”
