Russell Brand and Katy Perry appear to be dealing with their post-marital emotions in very different ways. Whilst Russell has moved on to a new woman - with whom he was spotted shopping for crystals recently, Katy Perry is reportedly channelling her rage into an 'explosive' new album.
Brand has been pictured in The Sun, shopping for natural crystal jewellery with his new girlfriend. Brand filed for divorce from Katy Perry on December 30, 2011 and today (February 27, 2012), The Sun published photos of the comedian with his new girlfriend, Oriela Medellin Amieiro, shopping at the Los Angeles store Crystalarium. Wearing a slightly unconventional outfit that consisted of a cardigan over a grey t-shirt, long necklace, white loose trousers tucked into leg-warmers and sandals, Brand appeared to be shelling out on natural crystal jewellery for his artist girlfriend, whom he reportedly met doing yoga. The 25 year-old Mexican is best known for her "erotic paintings, which deal with sensuality and sex."
Whilst Russell Brand is using yoga to dispel any negative emotions that his current divorce may be creating, Katy Perry has decided to use the more creative outlet of doing what she does best; songwriting and performing. At this year's Grammy awards, Katy performed new song, called Part of Me, which certainly seemed to be making a dig at her former husband. The song contained the lines "You can keep the diamond ring. It don't mean nothing anyway. "You chewed me up and spit me out / Like I was poison in your mouth' and 'You ripped me off, your love was cheap / Was always tearing at the seams." And a report from The Metro suggests that her new album is going to continue in that cathartic vein.
