Los Angeles - Katy Perry is taking a break from showbiz.

The 27-year-old singer reportedly wants to step back from her career and take time to properly recover from the breakdown of her marriage to Russell Brand last year.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she said: "I need to let my heart heal."

Katy spent much of her 14-month marriage on her world tour and has hinted that her career was one of the causes for the split.

She said: "For a modern woman, it is important to be supported and that there is equality in every aspect."

'I could not buy this lesson'

Katy - who is now dating Florence + the Machine guitarist Dan Aykroyd - recently insisted she doesn't regret her failed relationship with Russell, 37.

She said: "Everybody asks me if I regret something, they ask me if it's going to be that one moment [her marriage].

"Actually it's really a lesson learned and it's super valuable, I could not buy this lesson.

"And I apply it to my life, I learn and a lot of the time, I get really good material for my songs."

The brunette beauty was unsure if she wanted to open up about her marital troubles in her upcoming documentary film Katy Perry: Part of Me but ultimately wanted to be honest about her life.

She said: "The whole movie is about overcoming obstacles, overcoming my family, my set of rules and belief systems."
