Katy Perry Grammy Performance: Is "Part of Me" a Dig at Russell Brand?

by at . Comments

Their divorce is amicable and we don't normally like to read into things like this, but Katy Perry's new song, "Part of Me," sure sounds like a dig at Russell Brand.

The newly Katy started off her 2012 Grammy Awards performance singing her hit "E.T.", but then the music suddenly stopped and she burst into "Part of Me."

Aggressively, she 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.”

Easy to interpret it as bitterness toward Brand, no? Watch Perry perform in a ridiculously tight, form fitting rubber cat suit of sorts with her blue hair below:

Perhaps the strongest indication that this was aimed at Russell? The original song lyrics include, “You can keep the dog from me, I never liked him anyway.”

But last night, Perry sang: “Keep your diamond ring, in fact, you can keep everything – except for me.” Ouch. That's got to hurt, R ... amicable split or not.

lol, Adele already did and mastered the whole "break-up" album thing last year. And she can actually sing. Keep it 'glee-friendly', Katy. That is what you do 'best'.
