Controversial comedian, famed lothario and former drug addict, Russell Brand, has been called a lot of things, but he’s never been described as a “man of God” — until now he met Katy Perry, that is.
Katy praises her then fiancée — the pair have now married in a top secret Indian ceremony — in an interview Harpers Bazaar magazine, in which she says Russell’s quest for spirituality chimes with her own Christian faith.
“I always knew I wanted a great man of God, someone who was going to be an inspiration for people and also be a lovely husband and father,” she says.
“We’re at different places in our lives, but we can still grow together. He’s thought-provoking, articulate, a real advocate. I also definitely wanted to have a laugh. I have all that in him.”
The couple have matching tattoos on their inner arms, reading “Go With the Flow” in Sanskrit, and the only issue Katy has with her hubby is his vegetarianism. “I unfortunately still crave chicken McNuggets and bacon, which is the meat candy of the world,” she says.
Meanwhile, the “Hot N Cold” singer discusses her image. “I’m kind of a good girl — and I’m not,” she says.
“I’m a good girl because I really believe in love, integrity, and respect. I’m a bad girl because I like to tease. I know that I have sex appeal in my deck of cards. But I like to get people thinking. That’s what the stories in my music do.”
While voluptuous Mad Men star Christina Hendricks has talked about the difficulty of finding red carpet fashion that fits, the “California Gurls” singer shares her own difficulties with high fashion.
“I’ll tell you about my boobs and fashion,” she says. “It can be hard to wear those looks because they’re best on people who have no curves or thighs. I don’t have a Kate Moss body, but I’m very proud and happy with mine.”
But she reveals that aged 13 she was desperate for a breast reduction. “I had really bad back problems and was a little bit thicker. Then I grew up and lost the baby fat and said, ‘Hey, this isn’t all that bad.’”
