Part of Me, part 2?

Katy Perry has had an interesting life, and her fans probably want all the inside info. But the point of the book may be more of a preemptive strike against her ex than it is wanting to share her life.

We have seen Katy Perry’s life through film, and now it looks like she'll be sharing all about herself through the written word as well. Perry has reportedly signed on to write a tell-all book about her marriage to comedian Russell Brand. The book will may be more of an autobiography than a tell-all, though.

“Russell has written two books about his life already and it is rumored he is actively at work on a third tome, which discusses his relationship with Katy,” said Yahoo!.

Brand and Perry began dating in the summer of 2009 and were married in India in October 2010. Perry said she received the divorce papers at the end of the year 2011.

She seems to be doing well in her current relationship while Brand seems to be the wild one these days. Rumors were he ended the marriage because she wasn’t ready to have kids, but he doesn’t seem to be getting himself any closer to that goal.
