Katy Perry Comments on Russell Brand Marriage: 'It Was Just Like a Tornado'

Katy Perry is opening up about her relationship and marriage to Russell Brand, which ended in 2012 after two years of marriage.

“It was the first breaking of my idealistic mind,” Katy said during a 60 Minutes Australia interview. “I was having great success at 23, 24 and 25, and then I met someone that was interesting and stimulating. It was just like a tornado. It was everything happening once.”

She added she “always resonated with friction and resistance and challenges. I know that inherently [about myself]. Like, ‘OK, it’s gonna take a lot of work but oh, we’re gonna get somewhere great,’ or, ‘It’s gonna be a beautiful diamond. All this pressure is gonna turn into [that],” she added.

On her current relationship with fiance Orlando Bloom, she said it’s “healthy frictional,” and “It’s very open, very communicate, nothing is swept under the mat.”

She added, “It’s like, we should probably walk into the other room to discuss when we disagree because we’ll do it in public. If we can get to the ends of our lives together, we’ll be each other’s greatest teachers. … This is solid. This is, like, the main course.”

Russell Brand is Slammed After Criticizing Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion's 'WAP' Music Video

People are calling out Russell Brand.

The 45-year-old actor/comedian shared a video criticizing Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s new “WAP” music video.

In the video titled “WAP: Feminist Masterpiece or Porn?” Russell asked whether women “achieve equality by aspiring to and replicating the values that have been established by males.”

Russell went on to say that he thinks music videos from women in hip hop artists are “an emulation of a template that already exists and was established by males.”

He then asked: “Is it equality if the template has already been established by a formal dominator? The answer is no.”

“I wouldn’t be so reductive and simplistic to say that women celebrating their bodies using an aesthetic that’s conventionally been associated with the male gaze means it’s impossible that these tools could be used as a vehicle for liberation,” Russell continued. “But I am saying that, in a sense, it’s still the same metric – it’s still the same aesthetic, it’s still the same values, it’s still the same ideals. It’s still ultimately a sort of capitalist objectification and commodification of, in this case, the female.”

People then commented on Russell‘s video, slamming him and accusing him “mansplaining” feminism.

“I really don’t want to be taught feminism by Russell Brand. But I look forward to Louis CK’s thoughts on why Beyoncé is getting it all wrong,” one user wrote.

“Congratulations to Russell Brand for mansplaining to women how they should enjoy WAP & their own sexuality,” another wrote.

“Imagine thinking ur so woke and being this dumb,” another tweeted. “The end of the day Russell you are a white cis man unable to empathise with the experiences of women and ur option matters very little to this bigger conversation. You’re being ignorant AND whoreohobic AND no one asked.”
