Katy Perry has said she liked being married, but is happy with the way her life is now.
The Roar singer told W magazine she felt that her split from ex-husband Russell Brand had happened for a reason.
She said of marriage: "I really loved it. It was a new, fun, exciting journey. But I like how I am now and I think all things happen for a reason."
Katy, 28, was married to Russell Brand, 38, for 14 months before he told her by text at New Year that he wanted a divorce, and the pop star has said she hasn't seen him since.
She is now dating singer John Mayer, 36, and told the magazine she'd had a crush on him for years before they got together.
When asked who she had a crush on, Katy admitted: "I actually am dating my crush. I had a crush on him for a long time, and it just so happens we fit together great."
As far back as April 2009, Katy changed the lyrics to one of her songs during a concert to, 'I can't believe I fell in love with John Meyer'.
