Katy Perry Slams Russell Brand in 'Part of Me' & More Singers Who've Written About Exes (PHOTOS)


Katy Perry blasted her estranged husband Russell Brand (or it at least sounds like it) while performing her latest hit "Part of Me" at the 2012 Grammy Awards this past Sunday night. In the catchy tune, Katy sings:
“Your love was cheap, was always tearing at the seams. I fell deep and you let me drown. But that was then and this is now... You can kick the diamond ring. It don’t mean anything anyway.”
Ouch! The lyrics are pretty brutal, but it seems writing a song about an ex is the best cure for a heartbreak. Katy joins the likes of Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Selena Gomez who have all called out their exes in their hit songs. Click through the gallery to see who else wrote about an former flame.

    considering you've prided yourself on spreading unnecessary information about your exes.. seems like it was well deserved. sh*t happens.. maybe you should cry about it some more john. glad someone finally called him out -- guess it's not so good getting a taste of your own medicine.

    Her lyrics are a rip off of a Julia Roberts movie! I heard he dumped her b/c she was always acting and putting on a show, never could be her self always posing. She is always posing, as a singer!!!

    He is much better without her! Shes made a fortune off of broken hearted songs about all of her exes. Its only fair. I mean seriously, how many guys are there? I read a blog she has 14 ex boyfriends she penned songs about. Ridiculous! Go Jonas bro!!

    Gucci sent their fall/winter 2012/2013 collection down the Milan Fashion Week runway today and it featured a much darker, more gothic and vampire-like color palette than what was shown by the iconic design house for fall 2011. One year ago Gucci Outlet showed bright colors and blocked them together, helping to explode the current color blocking trend. For fall 2012, Gucci moved away from the trend they started and let black rule the runway.

    Do you know who is the prolocutor star of Louis Vuitton Handags now? It is the Sofia Coppola, she is well-know with the director of movies. Of course she like the LV very much ,especial the Louis Vuitton Wallet,but she never buy something from the Louis Vuitton Outlet, because she always get freely and show the newest louis vuitton items .
