It’s clear Katy Perry and her bad boy fiancé Russell Brand are an unconventional couple, now the California Gurl reveals how she first caught the comedian’s attention.
“I was 25, 30 feet away from him. And I threw the bottle straight at him: hit him smack dab on the head,” she tells Esquire magazine [via Huffington Post].
“Can you imagine the horrible feeling he had, when he was used to getting everything he wanted? I was like, ‘You’ve met your match, motherf*****.’ A week later we went on vacation in Thailand.”
Does Russell’s womanising ways worry Katy? “He used to basically be a professional prostitute — now he’s not. So he’s an extremist which can be both good and bad. I always needed someone stronger than me. And I am, like, a f****** strong elephant of a women. I say that hopefully in the humblest way I can.”
The pair may appear to be opposites but, in fact, Katy says they’re more alike than they appear: “I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I am you. You are me.’ Two divas in one house. It’s like splitting the atom: it shouldn’t happen.”
The singer also talks about her summer anthem “California Gurls”. “I was thinking to myself how perfect it would be to have a California anthem. I can’t let the Beach Boys down. I can’t let Tupac down. I had the idea to put Snoop on — I thought he would be the cherry on top, and it would make me look cooler.”
