The 'I Kissed A Girl' singer is reportedly "not ready" to open up on her marriage breakdown to the comedian.

Katy Perry protected herself from questions about her divorce to Russell Brand at her Super Bowl appearance by apparently having reporters removed from the red carpet whilst she posed for pictures.

The 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)' star was performing at a pre-game party for the NFL event and reportedly made the decision as she knew she would be asked about her marriage breakdown.

A source told The Huffington Post: "Katy isn't ready to talk about what happened with Russell. She wanted to focus on putting on a great show at the hottest party of the weekend and enjoy hanging out with her friends. 

"She knew that if she let media ask questions, they would ask her about Russell and she just didn't want to go there."

The singer ended up perfoming a short set at the party event and dedicated her track 'Peacock' to NFL Denver Bronco's star Tim Tebow.

Meanwhile, the singer is set to make an appearance at this weekend's Grammy Awards alongside such acts as Adele, Rihanna and Coldplay.
