Movie milks her divorce for all it's worth. Her concerts are colourful, fun and sexy
5 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

IF you're a fan of US singer Katy Perry, you'll love this

autobiographical concert movie of her songs and life.

If you don't know anything about her, you'll still enjoy the movie as it follows the structure of these kind of movies: it has many concert performances and interviews with her family, friends and fans about what a great singer and person she is.

The movie follows her on a year-long tour last year to promote her album, which produced five No. 1 hits, the first for a female artiste.

The movie would have been a normal one but for the way it milks her divorce from British comedian Russell Brand for all it's worth. Brand filed for divorce in December 2011 after 14 months of marriage.

It shows what led to the divorce (him wanting to have a baby; she not being interested in becoming a mum now) and then her finally accepting the divorce, complete with a breakdown, just before the start of her concert in Sao Paolo, Brazil. She even contemplates cancelling the concert.

This will certainly brings tears to many, as it did to me.

I enjoyed her concert shows as they were vibrant, energetic and colourful. "Thank you for accepting my weirdness," she tells the camera and her fans.

Her niceness permeates the movie, and you can see why her mostly white fans adore her, dress like her, mime her lyrics and say how much she inspires them and gives them hope.
