In a bold move on Sunday night, Katy Perry took the Grammy stage and debuted a new song, "Part of Me," to serenade her audience while sending ex-husband Russell Brand a poignant message— it's over, but I'm doin' fine!

It was a low move, but we're happy to see Katy bouncing back and belting it out.

According to reports, Russell walked away from a hefty chunk of money when he didn't request spousal support or his share of Katy's cash once they split (which was reportedly around $20 million!). Despite all that, it sounds like Katy would have given him whatever he wanted if it meant getting out of that marriage. The Details Of Katy Perry & Russell Brand's Divorce Settlement
