It’s a good thing Katy Perry has a patient therapist, because she claims she needed a lot of work to get through her divorce with Russell Brand and not one but two breakups with John Mayer.
“A lot of therapy has happened and a lot of understanding and growth,” the 29-year-old explains in the upcoming issue of Cosmopolitan.
“‘Sometimes you have to go through all this s*** to get your grips on life and figure out what the next boundaries in your love life are going to be.”
As for her on-again off-again love affair with Mayer, she noted “I know it sounds really hippie-s***, but I’m living in the now and not fantasizing about the future or (being) torn up about the past.” The couple broke up without explanation last February after dating since 2012.
But hey, we all might get some great new music out of their heartache!
“I have a lot of respect for (John) still, and I know it goes both ways. There’s no bad blood, but I’m sure there will be inspired songs.”
