Katy Perry Reveals Her Remedy For Russell Brand Divorce: “Eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos And Drinking!”

Ask anyone and they’ll tell you that breaking up is hard to do. But for Katy Perry, the experience was just “too intense.”

The 29-year-old singer/songwriter showed off her feline fabulousness as party of Marie Claire‘s January 2014 cover story and dished on her very public divorce from Russell Brand.

“There were two weeks of my life after I found out the truth of my marriage where I was like, ‘OK. All right. I can’t feel this. This is too intense right now,’” she recalls of the 2012 split after two years of unholy matrimony. “I was, like, just eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and drinking, and that’s it.”

In retrospect, Perry can understand why her marriage was doomed from the start. “[Russell] really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn’t ready—I think it was a way of control,” the Prism singer explains. “I think it was part of, if I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice—I’d have to be home more. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn’t ready for it. It wasn’t like, ‘Hey, let’s have a kid because we’re in love.’”

Thankfully, the singer found love soon after her breakup with current beau John Mayer. And while the two have broken up in the past, Katy has no doubt about her current relationship. “I took a break from my boyfriend, not one that I wanted,” she says. “It was like a splash of cold water to search inward on what was going on with me. That is what led me to this new awakening, this realizing, If I don’t do some self-love, I’m not going to be able to keep the love that I want. I still needed to deal with all of my ex-husband stuff.”

Now, there’s no denying where Katy’s heart is at. The songstress recently co-wrote and sang the duet, “Who You Love,” with her 36-year-old boyfriend for his new album, Paradise Island. “He’s just a fantastic partner,” she added of Mayer. “I’ve been a fan of his for such a long time. He’s got a brilliant, brilliant mind.”
