Katy Perry has been busy as of late. She released her new album ‘Prism’ with the singles ‘Roar’ and ‘Unconditionally’ following.

She’s also performed at various events including The GRAMMYs Nominations Live concert and the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball this past weekend.

The ‘Teenage Dream’ beauty has recently spoken about her break-up with comedian Russell Brand in an interview with Marie Claire magazine in the US.

Perry, now with singer John Mayer admitted that following the split from her then husband the situation became so intense that she wasn’t sure how to cope with it all.

She said: “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.’ I was, like, just eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and drinking, and that’s it.”

Katy Perry also spoke about her on-off relationship with current boyfriend John Mayer and explained that things are much better now since they had time apart:

“I took a break from my boyfriend, not one that I wanted. 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. I hadn’t.”

She continued: “It’s almost like if I kept talking about it, it would seem like I actually cared about it. I don’t.”

“He’s (Mayer) just a fantastic partner. I’ve been a fan of his for such a long time. He’s got a brilliant, brilliant mind. It’s a rad, mature relationship.”

The beauty looks set to have a busy 2014 as she embarks on her ‘Prismatic World Tour‘ across various dates in the UK and she has also been announced as one of the performers for the BRIT Awards.
