Though Katy Perry has previously discussed her divorce from comedian Russell Brand, the “Firework” singer explained to Jay Leno last night why she’s not shying away from it in her upcoming concert film, Katy Perry: Part of Me.
A purple-haired Perry told Leno that she wanted to give fans an honest look at life on the road in her movie — even if it meant documenting her personal turmoil. Brand announced he was filing for divorce from Perry, who was on a world tour for much of 2011, last December. “It wasn’t always exciting to watch those unflattering scenes where I’m crying and having an intense moment,” Perry said. “But I think that people will relate to the movie even more seeing me at my lowest point and now at my highest point.”
