Katy Perry is giving fans a closer look at her life and the ups and downs of fame in 3-D film, Katy Perry: Part of Me.
The movie follows Perry on her 2011 California Dream tour, a yearlong tour that promoted her popular 2010 album Teenage Dream in a series of 124 performances.
If the tour hadn’t been stressful enough, Perry also found her marriage with comedian Russell Brand falling apart.
The film gives some insight into Perry and Brand’s relationship from the happy beginnings to a bitter end that finds Perry fighting tears while trying to save face in the public eye.
“[Perry is] so strong, it’s very rare to see her weak,” stylist and longtime friend Johnny Wujek told USA Today. “There’s been times I’ve seen her cry, but never that upset. It was the stress of the tour, the stress of no sleep, and then Russell. She just broke down.”
The romance was touched upon throughout the film, however the audience is not privy to more personal details about the relationship.
For the future, as far as Perry is concerned, she hopes to put her dating life on hold for a while. “My fairy tale has absolutely changed,” she told USA Today. “I don’t need the Prince Charming to have my own happy ending. I can make the happy ending myself.”
Perry said that when her career started to take off she decided that she wanted to document it. She hired two documentarians, James Hall and Edward Lovelace, to interview her and provide a storyline for the film.
Perry claimed that this would provide a genuine look at her life. “People are going to see me completely,” she said. “I left in all of those scenes where I don’t look very flattering. Because that’s me.”
Perry made history with MSN by broadcasting the first ever fan-based skype chat, during which ten of her biggest fans from around the world were able to speak to her over Internet on live television.
