Katy Perry Takes Us To The Dark, Destructive, Cheetos-Eating Side Of Her Divorce In Marie Claire

Katy Perry talks her breakup with Russell Brand, Flamin' Hot Cheetos in Marie Claire magazine.

Katy gets super candid in the Jan. 2014 issue of Marie Claire.

In the January issue of Marie Claire, cover girl Katy Perry discusses everything from the inspiration for various tracks on her fourth studio album, Prism, to what she REALLY thinks about the paparazzi. (SPOILER ALERT: She calls ‘em the “pooparoozoo.” But, does she pronounce the epithet with a hard “z” or a soft “z”? More on this story as it develops.)

Most interesting of all, however, the “Unconditionally” singer talks very candidly about her divorce from ex-husband Russell Brand, revealing that: “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 continues: “I was, like, just eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and drinking, and that’s it.”

We feel like it’s only right to commend Ms. Perry on being courageous enough to share these very intimate details of her personal life with us. She’s 100 percent correct in the interview when she says, “I think you become more relatable when you’re vulnerable.” Very likely, there are tons of heartbroken KatyCats who just need that little, #JustLikeUs anecdotal boost to throw down the Cheetos and move on with their lives.

Concluding her thoughts on celebrity culture, the “Roar” songstress adds: “When you try to market yourself like some supernatural figurine who can’t be f***ed with, I always resort back to Scripture: Pride comes before a fall.” Too true, Katy, hallowed be thy name. Lead us not into flaming hot temptation. Amen.
