A part of me... without make-up! Katy Perry peels back her layers for new 'warts and all' movie documentary

Barefaced and beautiful; Katy Perry showed her natural beauty in the trailer for her documentary Part Of Me

Her ex-husband famously tweeted an unflattering make-up free picture of her, but singer Katy Perry clearly has no qualms about being pictured without her usual immaculate make-up - as long as she's in control.

The singer is seen on her upcoming tour film Part Of Me in a wardrobe fitting for her tour - and appears fresh-faced without her war-paint.

Thankfully it is significantly less embarrassing for the star, who was left red-faced when estranged husband Russell Brand tweeted a picture of her.

He had taken the snap in the middle of the night while she was still half-asleep.

Katy was said to be livid at the intrusion, but they soon kissed and made up, however the marriage faltered after just over a year.

The shot of Katy is seen as part of a trailer for her new warts and all film which she revealed will document her brief marriage to Brand.

She said: 'When you see the film, it’s a bit scary because there’s a lot of shots of me bloated with zits and normal.

'I think it’s important to start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dream you always have to be perfect or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world.

'So that’s why I decided to put everything into the film,' Katy said.

'In the most tasteful way. But mostly it’s about how I go there and the ride along the way which can be bumpy but mostly it was extremely fun.'

The 27-year-old opened up to Ellen on her show about her new film, Part of Me, and how she decided to show a realistic account of her life in the feature, including her relationship with Russell.

Katy's news comes just a week after Russell, 36, told Ellen that he still loves his estranged wife.

The chat show host asked Katy about the 3D documentary, saying to her, 'of course you got married during that time and that didn't turn out to last, is part of it still in there?'

Katy told Ellen: 'I thought it was important to show everything in between. 'I think sometimes people think that we’re perfect and we know we’re not perfect, at all.'

Some reports suggested that Katy had cut Russell from the footage, but this interview finally lays those rumours to rest.

The couple have been granted go-ahead for a divorce but it will not be finalised until July, because California law requires a waiting period of six months.

They split just two months after their first wedding anniversary.

Katy was said to have been 'blindsided' when Russell filed for divorce just after Christmas.

The move came after the pair enjoyed separate holidays over the festivities, she in Hawaii and Russell in his native England.

The pair have both moved on, Russell has been linked to Brazilian artist Oriela Medallin and David Hasselhoff's ex Anouska De Georgiou, while Katy has had flings with Baptiste Giabiconi and Florence & the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.

Meanwhile Katy will release her new single on July 2 with the 3D film to follow on July 5.
