Katy Perry traded her pastel-colored, cotton candy-themed performances of late for something far more personal at Sunday’s Grammy Awards: the pop star, and four-time nominee, debuted footage of her Indian wedding during a heartfelt performance of “Not Like the Movies.”
Perched on a swing that began to ascend, Perry sang, “I know you’re out there and … your love came for me,” as footage of her Indian nuptials to comedian Russell Brand flashed on a curtain attached to the swing.
Perry and Brand tied the knot on Oct. 23 in a very private and spiritual ceremony in Northern India, and have not previously released any images from the event. In the footage, Perry, 26, sporting a veil, was seen exchanging rings and, later, kissing Brand.
The singer, who arrived at the ceremony with Brand and her 90-year-old grandmother, then pumped up the volume a bit, finishing the performance with an abridged version of her hit “Teenage Dream,” complete with back-up dancers.
