With the costumes, the music and the over-the-top performances, Katy Perry shows fans her true self in her upcoming movie Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D. But was this tell-all documentary too much for the singer? Perry is currently promoting her newest project, which was produced from over 300 hours of film footage shot during her 2011 California Dreams world tour. The 27-year-old star admitted it wasn’t easy watching her film for the first time, especially because it was during her split from British comedian Russell Brand. “Sometimes my tummy turned when I saw different scenes – whether I was upset, whether I looked completely awful and exhausted, bloated with zits, [the] whole bit,” said Perry to ET Online.
“I left them in there ‘cause I thought it was important to show the truth because there’s a lot of fakeness out there these days.” Towards the end of her tour, Brand announced the couple’s divorce. “There were times on the road where I literally had to throw myself on that [stage] lift and kind of flip a switch and separate the personal from the professional because it’s… not the audience’s problems,” Perry said. “[The movie] is about overcoming obstacles no matter what shape they come in.” ~Graeme Mollison
