Sometimes, when one is hurt, taking a jibe at the person who did the hurting can really make you feel better, especially if you have some 100 hundred million people from all around the world in the audience...
It seems that "Fireworks" singer Katy Perry did just that at the Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday evening. Sources are saying that the pretty 25-year-old songbird altered the lyrics to her latest single "Part of Me", allegedly in response to the bitter break-up of her 19-month marriage to the Get Me to The Greek actor Russell Brand.
The singer took to the Grammy stage at the Staples Center in a space age, form-fitting pant suit and short, blue hair, belting out her newest song. Sources say she changed the lyric "You can keep the dog from me/I never liked him anyway” to "Keep your diamond ring/In fact, you can keep everything ... except for me."
Word is Perry is smarting from rumors that Brand plans to spill the beans about their tempestuous relationship in an up-coming tell-all book, while she has decided to take the high road...until now. The singer has had a record-breaking string of Number One hits from her Teenage Dream album, although she left the Grammy ceremony without a gong. Her performance topped a memorable night that saw a tribute to fallen singer Whitney Houston, who tragically died at the age of 48 the day before the ceremony.
