Whether relieving, heart-wrenching or perfectly amicable, breakups between celebrities are personal matters that often end up taking on a life of their own in the public eye.
However, Katy Perry has sought to shape her own narrative surrounding her most recent relationship breakup.The 32-year-old singer unexpectedly announced her split from British actor Orlando Bloom after 10 months of dating, which inevitably led to a media frenzy and intense speculation.
In a bid to quash the gossip surrounding her love life, Perry has since taken to Twitter insisting that ‘no one’s a victim or a villain’ and to demand a ‘new way of thinking’ when it comes to breakups.
She wrote, “How bout a new way of thinking for 2017!?
“You can still be friends and love your former partners! No one’s a victim or a villain, get a life ya’ll!”
The concept that a couple can part ways without entering mean-ex territory might be mystifying to some but Perry proves that both parties can feel sad about it without things turning sour.
Nonetheless, the American singer’s not wasting any time wallowing over the breakup either as she unveiled a dramatic new hairstyle on Instagram last night.
In the video, Perry showed off her newly buzzed, platinum hair do with the caption, “I wasn’t ready till now.”Reuse content
