Russell Brand changes his tune about ex-wife Katy Perry
It's no secret that Russell Brand and Katy Perry's marriage did not end on a high note. So, the comedian's recent comments about his former wife and their relationship may come as a bit of a shock.
During an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show on Monday, Oct. 13, while the Get Him to the Greek actor was promoting his new book, Revolution, he spoke about spreading the love through society —something that he didn't seem to show Perry towards the end of their relationship. Remember his comments on their sex life? That alone was enough to hurt her.
The former couple was married for 14 months and the "Dark Horse" singer appeared to be completely head-over-heels in love with Brand.
Speaking of his marriage, Brand said, "I really enjoyed it," adding, "Katy Perry is an amazing person."
However, it wasn't all enjoyable and Brand struggled with the constant media attention surrounding his marriage.
"What happened was after you get married, like anyone who's been married or come out of a relationship, you obviously have a lot of expectations," Brand explained. "And if those expectations don't work out, then it's probably time to grow a big beard and walk around in pajamas. That's my advice."
Perry, for her part, has previously spoken out about her marriage to Brand and how completely broken her divorce left her.
She revealed the meaning behind her emotional lyrics in "By the Grace of God" to Billboard magazine, saying, "That song is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point. I asked myself, 'Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?'"
