Katy Perry has said she thinks ex-husband Russell Brand wanted to have kids as “a way of control”.
The Roar singer, who reportedly recently split from fiance John Mayer, told Elle magazine that while the comedian wanted children, she wasn’t ready to make those sacrifices yet.
She explained: “When I decide to have a family, I’ll just want to be Mom for a little bit… [Brand] 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 thinking, if I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice. I’d have to be at home more. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn’t ready for it. It wasn’t like, “Hey, let’s have a kid because we’re in love.’”
Russell was said to have ended their 14-month marriage via text on New Year’s Eve in 2011.
So, she’s 29 years old now. Russell Brand dumped her. Her rebound romance with John Mayer is over. If she “wasn’t ready” for motherhood circa 2011, when does Katy Perry suppose she’ll be ready? Does she have any prospective sperm donors lined up?
Katy’s fear and loathing of motherhood — it requires “sacrifice” and is “a way of control” — indicates either a selfish disposition or an emerging feminist consciousness. She’s a victim of the oppressive heteronormative patriarchy. “PIV is always rape, OK?”
