Katy Perry disses ex-husband, Russell Brand, on Grammy stage

By Liz Kelly Nelson  

Striking a blow for irate exes everywhere, Katy Perry took the opportunity to use her live Grammy performance to deliver a dis to her ex-husband, Russell Brand, in front of millions of viewers.

Bing: Katy Perry on Grammy red carpet

Perry performed the song "Part of Me," which was apparently a track that didn't make the cut for her "Teenage Dream" album, but will be included on a yet-to-come re-release.

The song was a generic enough breakup anthem about not having one's soul broken by a rotten ex. Apparently, though, some lyrics were rewritten post-breakup, and Perry sang that new version Sunday:

"You can keep the diamond ring
It don't mean nothing anyway
In fact you can keep everything
Yeah, yeah, except for me"

We get Katy's irritation with her ex, but the money part is kind of odd, since the two recently settled their separation agreement financials and Brand will be walking away with none of Perry's estimated $40 million fortune.

You know, I used to like Katy Perry when she first started out.  What happened??!!  And what's with the blue hair?  So they got divorced, he got nothing... what's she complaining about then?  Get over it.    I like her better with black hair.
