Katy Perry "goes there" with Vogue about two of her high-profile relationships in the magazine's July cover story.

The singer says of ex-husband Russell Brand that she "was in love with him when I married him" in 2010. She adds that she hasn't heard from the comedian since Brand sent her a text on New Year's Eve 2011 saying he wanted a divorce, about 14 months later.

Perry says she blamed herself for their breakup until she "found out the real truth," which she "can't necessarily disclose."

She also opens up about her on-again-off-again relationship with John Mayer, saying she "was madly in love with him" and still is. She also says he has a "beautiful mind" and a "tortured soul."

The July issue of Vogue goes on sale June 25.

O'Reilly has more in works

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly is taking his book-turned-movie franchise and running with it.

O'Reilly already has inked a deal with National Geographic Channel for the movie version of his book "Killing Jesus: A History" being published Sept. 24. And he's got three similar books in the works.

While he declined to divulge the topics, the upcoming projects will make "very, very dramatic history come alive on the page and then in the movies," O'Reilly said in an interview with The Associated Press on the Richmond, Va., set of "Killing Kennedy," the film adaptation of his book about President John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination. The film featuring Rob Lowe as the former president and Ginnifer Goodwin as the first lady is expected to air around the 50th anniversary of the shooting later this year.

"We consider ourselves historical investigators," O'Reilly said of himself and researcher Martin Dugard. "We go and try to find new stuff and try to bring you a really vivid picture of who these people really were. ... I don't have an agenda at all, I mean I just want to know the facts."
