Katy Perry covers the new issue of Marie Claire, and not only does she look amazing, but she has some pretty interesting things to say about her split from Russell Brand.

It's been almost two years since Brand famously texted her and told her he wanted a divorce, and though Katy has since moved on to John Mayer, she recalls how painful that time was. "There were two weeks of my life after I found out the truth of my marriage where I was like, 'OK. All right. I can't feel this. This is too intense right now,'" Perry said. "I was, like, just eating Flamin' Hot Cheetos and drinking, and that's it."

Katy previously admitted that she contemplated taking her own life, and she added, "There are two ways you can go: You can either nurture yourself or go destructive. I have gone down the destructive path before, and that didn't work for me. You dig deep beyond those scars and find that soft tissue again, and you massage and nurture it and bring it to life, little by little, through serving yourself well. I did it through hikes and vitamins and therapy and prayer and good friends."

So what does she have to say about her current beau? "He's just a fantastic partner," she gushed of Mayer. "I've been a fan of his for such a long time. He's got a brilliant, brilliant mind It's a rad, mature relationship." We couldn't be happier for her!
