Katy Perry: I have all I wanted in Russell Brand

According to 26-year-old singer Katy Perry, she's "kind of a good girl," but then again, "I'm not," she explains in the December issue of Harper's Bazaar.

"I'm a good girl because I really believe in love, integrity, and respect," says the recently married pastor's daughter, who adds that she found her soul mate in outrageous comic Russell Brand.

"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."

A sense of humor is important to Perry, who likely needed one after being banned from "Sesame Street" for baring too much cleavage during a duet with Elmo. The star maintains that at the time, she had no idea her attire was too over-the-top. "If there had been a problem on the set, they would have said it to me at the outset," she says. "We had many different options."

Shortly afterward, Perry poked fun of the situation by appearing in a "Saturday Night Live" skit wearing a too-tight Elmo T-shirt with a plunging neckline, because, as she puts it, "How do you respond otherwise?"

Despite all the attention on her assets, Perry says she wasn't always so comfortable with her body. At 13, she wanted to have a breast reduction. "I had really bad back problems and was a little bit thicker," she tells Bazaar. "Then I grew up and lost the baby fat and said, 'Hey, this isn't all that bad.'"

And speaking of bad, just what makes Perry think she's such a bad girl? "I like to tease," she says. "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."

    Ok she sings about kissing another girl but says she wants a man of God. Am I the only one a little confused by that?

    It only matters what Katy Perry (Mrs. Russell) feels and thinks. Beyond a doubt she knows the man she loves and adores. He makes her laugh, and that says a lot about a man. He does have a gift, and whether it is compared to the likeness of God, that comes through for Katy, so I would say she's got a whole lotta man, and in relationships today, there are far and few of these. Having seen Mr. Russell on may interviews by t.v. appearances, he captivates you, and you see the inside of a "MAN". That in itself, is the way all things should be. The exterior is at most not the true individual, but when you see them expose themselves from within, that is complete. If a lot of the people out there don't get it, then it's their problem. I totally see and get what Katy see's in her man. For Katy I say good girl, Congrats, and Russell keep your laughter and great sense of humor rocking us all.....

    I wish them well but I give this marriage less than 5 years - down deep this is not the "type" of man she wanted.
