Katy Perry will become Katy Brand

It may be old-fashioned, but it’s also very sweet – Katy Perry has made the decision to change her last name to that of her husband, Russell Brand.  In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Perry said that people were already calling her “Mrs. Brand” to get her attention, and she’s already accustomed to turning around when people say it.

Later in the interview, Katy said that she was thrilled to be married to Russell, but that she was thankful for Helen Mirren spending so much time with her husband as a movie co-star.  Katy says Russell can be a handful, and it’s nice to have someone else to take him off her hands sometimes.
