    Katy Perry's Marie Claire revelations continue.

    In her brand-new interview with the mag, the 29-year-old singer is opening up about her failed marriage to ex-hubby Russell Brand.

    "[Brand] really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn't ready," the "Unconditionally" crooner revealed. "I think it was a way of control. I think it was part of, if I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice—I'd have to be at home more. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn't ready for it. It wasn't like, 'Hey, let's have a kid because we're in love.'"

    As for starting a family, Perry did say, "I'm definitely not there yet, and I can't plan that far in advance. When I decide to have a family, I'll just want to be Mom for a little bit."

    Family aside, Perry did gush about how happy she is with her current relationship with boyfriend John Mayer.

    "He's just a fantastic partner," she said. "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."
