Katy Perry distances herself from Russell Brand quote

Katy Perry has criticised a journalist for seemingly rehashing an old interview from three years ago.

The singer was recently quoted as telling Australia's Daily Telegraph that she hadn't spoken to former husband Russell Brand since they split at the end of 2011.

She apparently said: "He hasn't spoken to me since he texted me saying he was filing for divorce. I don't want to talk about him - my songs will say what I need to say."

Perry has now taken to Twitter say that the quote was from 2012 when she was promoting her film Part of Me.

The US star said: "It's really inappropriate when journalists repurpose interviews done 3 yrs ago in context of promoting a film & then stamp a new date on it.

"The Daily Telegraph & Chris Knowles."
