Breakups are never easy -- especially if they're caught on camera.
The final moments of Katy Perry's 14-month marriage to Russell Brand are chronicled in the pop star's new documentary, Katy Perry: Part Of Me (in theaters July 5). In the revealing film, the "Wide Awake" singer admitted: "Being in love is a dream, but the reality is not like the movies. There's a lot more compromise and sacrifice."
Prior to their split, Perry, 27, informed her management team that the longest she was willing to go without seeing Brand, 37, was two weeks; she often flew to wherever he was working to spend three or four days with him.
After Brand filed for divorce in December, Perry was visibly and understandably upset. "The truth is I'm a romantic and I believed in the fairy tale. . .I did everything I could but it still failed," she said. "The dream of being in love is a lot different than the reality of making it work."
But Perry, ever the optimist, quickly changed her tune: "I've got a second chance at a brilliant life."
