Katy Perry took a dig at soon-to-be ex husband Russell Brand as she debuted her new track ‘Part of Me’ at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night.
The singer, 27, who signed her divorce papers last week, first launched into her hit “E.T.” while green beams lit the stage, People magazine reported.
But then the stage blacked out, as a blue-haired Perry emerged in a leather-like, silver and gold body suit – a different look than the dazzling gown she walked the red carpet in earlier – and sang lyrics like “You chewed me up and spit me out/Like I was poison in your mouth/You took my light, you drained me down…You ripped me off, your love was cheap.”
The lyrics apparently contained a reference to her husband of 14 months.
“Now look at me, I’m sparking/A firework, a dancing flame/You won’t ever put me out again,” one of the lines of the song said.
According to Us magazine, an edgy Perry even tweaked the song’s lyrics to make the song even more pointed at Brand. One line originally read “You can keep the dog from me, I never liked him anyway.” For Sunday’s show, Perry sang “Keep your diamond ring/In fact, you can keep everything…Except for me.” (ANI)
