Blake Edwards Katy Perry is full of drama. Though the singer tends to keep her private life mostly private, what we do know about it is somewhat bizarre, sometimes unsettling, and often sounds sort of … miserable.
Here are the oddest aspects of the " Chained To The Rhythm " chanteuse's love life. Ever the supportive girlfriend and glutton for attention, Perry ran across the stage during one of the band's performances of a cover of "Lose Yourself" by Eminem. First she flailed around with a sign, then decided to hurl herself into the crowd in an attempt to stage dive … and it didn't end well for her.
She once dated an accused murderer Getty Images Before becoming a household name, Katy Perry dated actor Johnny Lewis from to In , Lewis died after falling from a roof — but not before he allegedly beat his landlady to death and killed and dismembered her cat, TMZ reported.
Lewis reportedly suffered from drug addiction, and sources told the site that he may have been under the influence of methamphetamine or PCP at the time of the incident. An insider told Us Weekly that Perry was "devastated" by Lewis' death. A lot of her songs were partially inspired by him. But she was young and it was a time in her life she cherishes. They had good times. She could never help him and couldn't [let herself] go in that direction.
Given all that history, imagine his surprise and hurt when she dumped him over email in May We [got] along better than any other girl I've ever hung out with in my life. That was the beginning of a really really awesome time for me … When I was around her I felt really at ease and comfortable with myself … It was the most amazing thing ever.
A little over two years after she dumped McCoy over email, Russell Brand told Perry he wanted a divorce … via text message. She revealed to Vogue , "[Brand is] a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, She moves at lightning speed Getty Images http: It wasn't the first time she moved at lightning speed: Three months later, in March , she was linked to male model Baptiste Giabiconi.
By August , she'd hooked up with Mayer for the first of many times. There were times I felt like a stepping ladder [for Perry]. Russell Brand may have cheated on her Getty Images Perry told Vogue that her intensive tour schedule for Teenage Dream was a factor in her divorce from Brand, but that there were also some unnamed, sinister elements at play as well.
So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting," she said. I let go and I was like: This isn't because of me; this is beyond me. So, I have moved on from that. Cheating is easy, try doing something challenging and be faithful. A source close to the Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales star told Radar Online , "Orlando never changed his ways with hanging out with other women [during the relationship]. He would still continue to hang out with his actor buddies and there were always a ton of sexy women around.
Bloom reportedly rubbed Erin's backs and even swapped placecards with other guests at a gala to sit together. Six days later, he and Perry released a joint statement announcing they were dunzo. Her on-again-off-again romance with John Mayer was a doozy Getty Images Perry's on-again-off-again romance with John Mayer seems nothing less than exhausting. They first got together in early August , then reportedly split before the month was even over.
However, by March , they called it quits , despite still loving each other. In June , they reunited for a "casual" relationship. At the time, Perry told Marie Claire that she hadn't processed the fallout of her divorce from Russell Brand, which hurt her romance with Mayer and led her to take a break from the relationship. They got serious again by August , conveniently when their duet " Who You Love " dropped. By October , sources speculated that they'd get engaged in the near future, and one month later in November , Perry was seen wearing a diamond ring on that finger, though neither she nor Mayer confirmed or denied an actual betrothal.
In February , they reportedly split again , but were spotted on a date in January and were full-on back on by summer and even partied together on New Year's Eve together that year. Mayer and Perry may reunite Getty Images Since Perry dated Orlando Bloom starting in January , it seems Mayer's been far from her mind — though she's still on his. And by the way, it's a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years.
That was my only relationship. So it's like, give me this, people. In July , a source told Radar Online , "John says he and Katy will reunite … He's laying in wait for Katy to come back running into his arms.
He's incredibly patient and has been planning this for a while … John's virtual disappearance from the public eye has everything to do with the mind games he's playing with Katy, who he's still madly in love with. But he's trying to keep her guessing about his personal life and he fully expects her to come running back to him," the source added. While dating Matt Thiessen in the early s, the duo recorded " Long Shot.
She has a weak spot for problematic men Getty Images Perry told Vogue that her on-again off-again romance with Mayer was the real deal, but that it was also part of a pattern in her dating life overall to go after bad boys. I still am madly in love with him," she said in the July issue. Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.
Until then, Perry had never really admitted whether or not she ever kissed a girl and liked it , but in her acceptance speech, she said she did — and more. What I did know was that I was curious, and even then I knew that sexuality was not as black and white as this dress. But in , when that song came out, I knew that it started a conversation that a lot of the world seemed curious enough to sing along to it … These people were nothing like I had been taught to fear.
These people are actually, magic, and they are magic because they are living their truth. I wouldn't give anything to go back to my 20s; I'm so much more grounded. And I've learned a lot of lessons — patience, the art of saying no, that everything doesn't have to end in marriage. That your education can start now.
