Katy Perry ready to change her name
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: So long Katy Perry. Hello Katy Brand.
The pop singer will announce on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” today that she is in the process of changing her name to reflect that of her husband, comedian Russell Brand, according to People.
The couple wed in October, and the magazine reports that Perry has been going by Brand informally ever since.
During the same show, Perry … er, Brand starts a bit of a cat fight with Dame Helen Mirren, who co-stars with Russell in Julie Taymor’s “The Tempest.” During and interview, Mirren jokes that she’s smitten with the “Get Him to the Greek” star, and says she’s jealous that he’s married to Katy.
“She needs to step off my man,” Perry jokes, before adding, “Actually, I kind of don’t mind that someone else takes some of the responsibility, because it’s a lot of work [being married to Brand].”
