In the January issue of Marie Claire, Katy Perry talks about everything from her romance with John Mayer to her divorce with Russell Brand and her relationship with her parents. She admitted that even thought her split with Brand was painful, she’s been getting her confidence back now that she’s dating Mayer, who she calls her “fantastic partner.” She revealed that one of the reasons she and Russell called it quits was because she wasn’t ready to start a family. Katy said, “I’m definitely not there yet, and I can’t plan that far in advance. He 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. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn’t ready for it.”
The January issue of Marie Claire is on newsstands December 17th.
