Russell Brand is fairly zen about his divorce from Katy Perry.

In an interview with the Lorraine show on the UK's ITV1 while doing publicity rounds for Rock of Ages, the British funnyman offered up a rather sanguine view.

"Well, it did work out in a way because you are married for some time, and that's really good, and then you're not married, and that's really good," he said.

Right??!? Profound yet simple. Best spin on a divorce ever!

The 37-year-old Brand and the 27-year-old Perry swapped vows in October 2010 in a lavish ceremony in India only to see their marriage unravel in 14 months.

While divorce is never easy, he's come to terms with it.

"You just have to have acceptance of things. She is a person I love, but now this is a new time. I suppose divorce is difficult, isn't it, because of the admin! There's a lot of admin!"

Seriously. On a different level of love, Brand gushed over ... Alec Baldwin.

"He's like sort of a big powerful, hairy, sexy uncle," he said of his Rock of Ages co-star. "Which in the wrong circumstances could be a terrible thing."

"But in the circumstances that I found myself in, it was really lovely. He's really friendly, and he's really clever, and really sweet and gave me wonderful advice."

Random, hilarious bromance alert?

Katy Perry was channeling her inner flapper Tuesday night.

The star, looking like a character straight out of The Great Gatsby, turned heads at a City of Hope event in Los Angeles with finger waves, a funky head piece in her hair, a long pearl necklace and a pink-ish dress that resembled a neglige.

In short ... she was sexy. See Katy Perry pictures below!

Once inside the event - at which the City of Hope's Music And Entertainment Industry Group honored Bob Pittman at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA - Perry changed into a simpler black dress ... leaving us wanting more '20s.

What do you think of her look? Vintage? Elegant? Racy? All of the above?

Katy Perry may totally be over Russell Brand for good, but she’s still staying close to her more recent ex, guitarist Robert Ackroyd, according to reports.

On Wednesday, the “Part of Me” singer reunited with the Florence + the Machine member in London, where she's promoting her new 3D film.

The pair, who reportedly broke up after a month of dating, were spotted having dinner at the Dove before leaving the trendy eatery together.

Katy Perry, Robert Ackroyd

According to reports, Katy was the one who called it quits after the couple were seen canoodling at the 2012 Coachella Music Festival in May.

“It wasn’t that serious. It’s not a nasty thing and they are still talking, but Katy told him to do his thing,” a source told Us Weekly at the time.

From all accounts, they remained close and there were “no hard feelings.”

Since her marriage ended, Katy has been pretty vocal about what went down with her divorce, both through song and through interviews.

“I think sometimes people think that we’re perfect, and we’re not, at all,” she said, and that means more than showing Katy Perry without makeup.

“I think it’s important [to] start breaking down the idea that you always have to be perfect, or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world."

No real confirmation yet on whether Robert Ackroyd getting back together with her is anything more than fantasy, but stay tuned.

Stars without makeup = all the rage these days.

We've seen Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga without makeup, among others, in recent weeks. Now another big-name music star is joining these natural ranks:

Miss Katy Perry, as part of her Part of Me film.

Check out this lovely backstage shot from her 3-D documentary, which chronicles her life and recent touring exploits and hits theaters this summer:

Katy Perry With No Makeup

An adorable and bare-faced Perry shows off a million-dollar smile (and what looks like a candy-cane inspired outfit) in this particular backstage shot.

Somehow we're guessing she feels a bit better about this than the time Russell Brand Tweeted that unflattering pic of Katy Perry with no makeup.

This one wasn't three inches from her face, which helps.

Katy was well aware of the all-access nature of the 3-D film, too, saying she wanted people to see her how she really is, even if that's not flawless.

"When you see the film, it's a bit scary because there's a lot of shots of me bloated with zits and normal," she told Ellen DeGeneres while on her show.

"I think it's important to start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dream you always have to be perfect or flawless or live in a fantasy world."

Refreshingly modest, but Katy's still a fantasy for most guys.

Katy Perry's upcoming documentary concert movie, Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D, will give us insight into the pop superstar's life like never before.

And show her trying on costumes a lot.

The film combines concert footage, backstage footage, and biographical footage into one experience. This latest sneak peek focuses on the backstage component.

Watch as KP dresses up as a peacock, a candy cane of sorts and more:

Landing in theaters July 5, the blockbuster film will reportedly also touch upon Perry's divorce with Russell Brand, her sheltered upbringing and more.

All in 3D, people. 3D. Way hotter than our Katy Perry pics.

Russell Brand is not really trying to win back Katy Perry, but that doesn't stop celeb gossip tabloids from having a field day with the former couple.

By all accounts, they were in love, but got married too quickly and were just too different to make it work, but harbor no ill will toward each other.

That's just not sufficient for OK! Magazine though.

OK! Cover

According to this breaking, almost certainly bogus tabloid report:

  • Russell has been bombarding her with phone calls and texts
  • He's flat out begging her to take him back after they split
  • She's lonely while her new man is on tour in Australia

Never mind that Katy broke up with Robert Ackroyd already, or that Russell admitted on Ellen that it wasn't mean to be (even if he loves her as a person).

Amazingly, this may not be the most ridiculous thing in the issue! OK! also claims that Kanye is proposing to Kim. No way those two are even really dating!

Katy Perry is once again a single lady after breaking up with her rebound rocker beau, Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.

The pair weren't a pair long, only going public with their coupling last month, kissing at Coachella. Guess things went south shortly after.

"It wasn't serious," a source said. "She likes him a lot, but it was just a distraction. It was short-lived, she's still dealing with getting over her marriage and it's going to take her a while to truly be able to trust anyone again."

Katy Perry and Robert Ackroyd

"She's still friends with Rob, but they were never serious ... she had doubts from the start. There are no hard feelings, they are both just very busy and had no expectations. Rob is a good guy, but she just wants to focus on her work."

Speaking of her marriage, she revealed why she decided to include her split from Russell Brand in her upcoming movie, Katy Perry: Part of Me.

"I thought it was important to show everything in between," the star said on Ellen today. "Sometimes people think that we're perfect, and we know we're not perfect, at all."

Just last week, Russell himself stopped by to talk to Ellen about Perry, who he had nothing but love for. Watch a clip from Katy's visit below:

Katy Perry is never one to hold anything back.

The singer performed her new song "Wide Awake" at the Billboard Music Awards last night, a song written for her upcoming 3D documentary movie and which appears to specifically address her recent divorce from comedian Russell Brand.

Watch and listen to her performance here:

"I'm wide awake. I was in the dark, I was falling hard with an open heart. How did I read the stars so wrong. I was dreaming for so long. I wish I knew then what I know now. I wouldn't dive in, I wouldn't bow down," she sings.

But the song isn't about the singer wallowing in heartbreak for long, at least.

"Not losing any sleep," she says. "I picked up every piece and landed on my feet."

"Need nothing to complete myself. I am born again, outta the lion's den. I don't have to pretend. The story's over now, the end."

If the song is as autobiographical as it sounds, she's moved on. Good for her.

"Be yourself and you can be anything." - Katy Perry

The upcoming documentary concert film Katy Perry: Part of Me now has an official poster, teasing insight into the singer's private life as well as her singing career.

The film will focus on Perry's bombastic live performances, but there's more to it, as well. Who is the lovely young woman behind the getups and catchy #1 hits?

Katy Perry 3D Movie Poster

The documentary tells the story of Perry's life, her rise to stardom, and her current status as one of the world's most famous celebrities, beginning July 5.

It will also touch on some of her "dark times," such as her divorce from Russell Brand, which understandably crushed Katy despite an amicable parting of ways.

For a more extensive preview of the forthcoming behind-the-scene look at the "Firework" herself, check out the Katy Perry: Part of Me in 3D trailer below:

Russell Brand and Katy Perry might as well be teaching Celebrity Breakups 101.

Proving that a split doesn't have to be bitter or contentious just because it's painful, the comedian opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about his recent divorce and had only positive things to say about former wife Katy Perry.

"I still love her as a human being," he said. "But, sometimes when you're in a relationship I suppose it doesn't work out, does it? You can't absolutely make everything the way you want it to be in life. But that doesn't mean I regret it or anything."

"Sometimes things are just different and then you move with that and try and remain in contact with what is beautiful about yourself and each other."

"I was very happy to be married with her," Brand continued. "She's such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her."

Perry has since rebounded with Florence + The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, with whom she was spotted packing on the PDA at Coachella.

Still, it's time to move on. Last week, Brand finally unfollowed her on Twitter.

Also on Ellen, Brand weighed in on various newsworthy items of the day, including the Time Magazine breastfeeding cover. You gotta watch.
