Reports circulating suggest that quirky pop star Katy Perry may take an extended hiatus from music after July.


EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: 'Katy Perry: Part of Me' -- the Fans

The 'Teenage Dream' singer has been working hard to promote her upcoming biopic, 'Katy Perry: Part of Me' as well as her latest single 'Wide Awake'. But according to the Daily Mirror, she's set to take an extended break from the end of next month, telling the site: "I need to let my heart heal."

We think it's pretty safe to assume Katy is referring to the emotional toll of the breakdown of her relationship with UK comedian Russell Brand. After 14 months of marriage, Russell filed for divorce from Katy on December 30 last year.

Despite the heart break (as evidenced in one particularly raw scene in her biopic where it's believed Katy's body convulses with grief before going on stage to perform), Katy has indicated that she's "absolutely not" afraid of falling in love again.

Katy also suggested that Russell was perhaps less than supportive of her demanding California Dreams touring schedule, potentially contributing to the demise of the relationship. She said: "For a modern woman, it is important to be supported and that there is equality in every aspect."

    Oh, don't do that Katy. You are a such a nice girl. Unfortunately, you got caught to a clown. Remember, everyone makes mistakes. Most important thing is to learn from that go on living. If you give up, you become a looser. There are millions, admire you. You are a very good singer, and very pretty too. So, stand up, and be counted. We all love you & admire you. Keep it going girl !

    this doesn't mention anything definite. She was probably just having an off day. I don't believe it, she's at the top of her game, like Rihanna, everyone said, she should rest, she'll have a breakdown, she's gone on to release another album. They have to ride to fame bubble while it lasts.
