Katy Perry thinks fiance Russell Brand has an awesome sense of humour and doesn't know anyone funnier
Katy Perry thinks her fiance Russell Brand is the "funniest man in the world".
The 'I Kissed a Girl' beauty - who is set to wed the British comedian in the next few weeks - admits Russell is "brilliant" and never fails to make her laugh.
She said: "I think he is the funniest man in the world. He is brilliant. People should not have a problem with him. Russell Brand is awesome!"
The 25-year-old singer has also revealed how she was forced to change her name from her real moniker Katy Hudson after people kept asking if she was related to Hollywood actress Kate Hudson.
She laughed: "Living in Los Angeles there can only be one Kate Hudson. People kept asking me if I was her less famous sister. It was weird and stupid so I changed my surname to Perry as that is my mum's maiden name."
Katy's mother Mary and father Keith are both pastors who she admits brought her up in a "strict" household.
However, Katy admits she relished the chance to experience life once she moved away from their family home.
She explained: "I love my parents and appreciate the love and strength they gave me but since moving out of home and living in Los Angeles for many years, I now understand a lot more about life. If you love someone and respect them, that is all that counts."
