Katy Perry Says Russell Brand Left Her In Tears Before Going On Stage

Katy Perry nearly always looks impeccable when she performs her raunchy routines and poptastic hits, but she's revealed that underneath her bubbly exterior, the horrors of breaking up with hubby Russell Brand were leaving her secretly weeping backstage.

Her problems hit her as she went on an incredible 124-date world tour while her marriage to the comedian was falling apart.

The star told The Hollywood Reporter: "There were times when what was going on in my personal life was so overwhelming that I had to bend over to let those tears fall straight out of my eyes and not my false lashes. Just as I'm about to go up on that ramp and sing 'Teenage Dream'."

She also revealed that she'll be pumping all that heartbreak into new material, saying: "Like how I write my songs, honesty has always worked for me, so if it ain't broke, why f**king fix it?"

Perry and Brand's ill-fated marriage has resulted in a bitter break-up with both not shy to talk about their problems, a divorce will be finallised next month.
