Katy Perry: John Mayer is “Fantastic Partner,” I Don’t Care About Russell Brand

The “Roar” singer says of Mayer, “He’s just a fantastic partner… He’s got a brilliant, brilliant mind. It’s a rad, mature relationship.”
As for why the pair split last March, Perry explains, “I took a break from my boyfriend, not one that I wanted. It was like a splash of cold water to search inward on what was going on with me.”
Perry shares, “That is what led me to this new awakening, this realizing, ‘If I don’t do some self-love, I’m not going to be able to keep the love that I want.'”
The performer goes on to add, “I still needed to deal with all of my ex-husband stuff. I hadn’t. It’s almost like if I kept talking about it, it would seem like I actually cared about it. I don’t.”
Perry further reveals that during their marriage, Brand “really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn’t ready.”
“I think it was a way of control. I think it was part of, ‘If I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice – I’d have to be home more,'” she offers.
The pop star says she’s still “definitely” not ready for kids, but when she does decide to have children, she’ll take a break for work and just “be Mom for a little bit.”
The mag hits newsstands on December 16.
