Katy Perry reveals Russell Brand wanted me to sacrifice m career for a baby. She is a popular singer songwriter and she is putting blame on the pressures she was getting to have children saying it was a huge part of why she ended up in divorce from the British comedian Brand.
The star and Brand were married in 2010 and she tells all about how he wanted to start a family very fast although Perry did make it clear to him that she was just too busy with her Teenage Dream album and wasn’t emotionally ready to become a mother.
She tells Marie Claire magazine,
“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 at home more. I really wanted to (have children), but I knew I wasn’t ready for it. It wasn’t like, ‘Hey, let’s have a kid because we’re in love.’”
The couple then split in 2011, and now Perry is dating rocker John Mayer, but she insists motherhood still isn’t in on her mind for anytime soon.
The 29 year old adds,
“I’m definitely not there yet, and I can’t plan that far in advance. When I decide to have a family, I’ll just want to be mum for a little bit.”
