Katy Perry is branding herself with a new moniker and changing her name to Katy Brand.
On today's episode of the "Ellen DeGeneres Show," the quirky 26-year-old singer, who married British comic Russell Brand in India in October, revealed that she is taking her husband's last name.
In fact, Perry tells DeGeneres, she has already grown accustomed to being called "Mrs. Brand."
"Sometimes when people try to get my attention – like, if I’m at an event or something like that and they want special attention - they go, 'Mrs. Brand!' and I go [swoosh]," she said, turning her head.
Perry added that she's currently in the process of changing her name and is loving the married life, even though 35-year-old Brand can sometimes be a handful.
"There’s never a dull moment," she admitted. "He’s a smorgasbord of things. A sense of humor is really important in our household. That’s how we de-stress and we like to have a laugh."
I think hollywood marriages can last, u jsg need trust, love, and never sign up for a reality show, i think that is a big course in hollywood right now
i think they are two very ecelctic, talented people that probably compliment each other very well... but unfortantly hollywood marriages never last long... they should have met in a different life.
I like Katy Perry's voice, like her songs, and I think she's very pretty. I'm not sure what I think of her husband.
You ever notice Russel Brands disturbing likeness to Charles Manson?
This is funny
Look at his eyes! What's he on, anyway?
Hittin that would be my teenage dream
Tapping that would be my teenage dream...
All I can say is Ohhhhh myyyyy goooossssshhhh!!!!!!!
Hitting that would be my teenage dream...be a pimp, Katy
I want to see a change here...SHE should be the one who has an affair with the hott pool boy or tatoo artist...She is so hott she could do it and I will do the same I did with Jolie...BIG PIMPIN BI-OTCH!
he gets to see her in that tight elmo shirt every night. lucky guy...
Yuck! He is so gross! He looks like a perverted dirtbag with batbrow. I give thier "marriage" 6 months before he cheats on her...........
Soso happy 4 u guys
She doesn't appear to be stupid. So what could he possibly have on her that makes her hang with that freak? Maybe an anaconda in his pants? It'd take that to get through those powerpacks of hers.
Wow, you guys are so funny. I would just like to see her nekked! too funny
cute couple, i do wish them the best of luck :))))
Sure, julian maybe you and russell can tagteam me.
Is it me, or do they both have foreheads like Herman Munster? Their kids will probably have foreheads like the blue guy in Megamind.
Duh!all the negative comments given by jealous, insecure, nasty pipz who's lives are already miserable..Anyways,all the bad comments are no big deal to the couple..what a lovely couple..Have a happy life together forever..
That's Mrs. Crusty Scabby Junkie to you!!! God he's gross....

Julien let me turn you out. I can make your wiki leak.
I would love too but I am having a massive herpes outbreak at the moment..it smells like parmesan cheese..Can I have a raincheck in a few weeks?
They have the same hairstyle. Scary.
I am not wearing any panties against the advice of my attorney.
... And over and over and over and over and over.
is this what they mean when they say "gay wedding"?
I will be releasing damaging information that all religion is man-made and God is no more real than Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny
Well they look good together I think because they both look equally strange. Something seems off about both of them, particularly Katy
As a couple. I believe that they have the God-given-right to do what they agree on ... didn't you and your boo-boo do the same at some-point in your life ???
Russell you could Brand me over and over and over.
i like her better as Katy Perry but it's her decision
To be honest I'm shocked. Its not often you hear of celebs changing their names after marriage.
russel is awesome, katy is gorgeous, they look good together. good for them! f*#k the haters.
This marriage is a tragedy and the name change is an even bigger one...
@julian women suck it better... Well at least i do. Hope your reading this russell mwah!
I will be releasing damaging information that Katie is a Tranny.
I give the them maybe a year after that she will be filing for divorce and she will be katy perry once again!
I second that.
I cant beeeelieve that anyone would actually have the audacity to speak like that about my beautiful wife! Our years together shall only be outnumbered by the stars in the heavens! You jealous bunch of bloody scallywags. @#*!!% to the lot of you!
She could`ve done so much better than him.
I have a new boyfriend in jail that is much hotter than Russell Brand.
Congratulation to their marriage. Katy's husband looks scary though. He looks like American Most Wanted. But we'll see how long this will last.
I wish them the best in everything. But I have to say she looks like a Chatty Katy doll and he just looks dazed and confused.
Oh no! peoples won't know you but I respect your decision.
Is that the guy from the movie Mask? I;m talking about that movie from the 80's with Cher.
You'll never catch me with a woman.
Lmao funniest thing I've read all day
A year more.. What do you say people??!!
Agreed! She'll catch him with another woman. Watch and see..............
Morticia marries scary Jesus.
I am have a stiffy for Lance Bass.
So that's why your last name has "ASS' in it. I'll bet Bass has his "lance" stiffy for you too.
I'm sure she doesn't mind taking his name since "Perry" is not even her real last name. It's Hudson, but she couldn't use it, since there's already a Kate Hudson.
Now this is news that actually makes me think that some celebrities are fake as s#!t. The fact that a female artist known by her full name will change her last name because its simply an old time honored tradition of marriage, even if that may initially hurt her career (a new Katy Brand album may initially go unnoticed because of the unrecognized name), speaks a little bit about some people and their values. I never really thought much of Katy Perry, but the fact she's gonna do this is pretty nice.
oops, I meant to say aren't fake as s#!t.
One can only hope it kills her singing career since she can't sing anyway.
Ok, there is nothing wrong with taking the last name of your husband. It's also OK if you don't. By the way, she can and will probably still keep the stage name of Katy Perry, which isn't her real name anyway! It's Katy Hudson (given the similarties, I see why she changed it to Perry...her mother's maiden name) and the name change would be reflected legally on her real name, not her stage name.
Nice. Please, that woman can change her name to mud and lose nothing!
They look great together, dont worry about the negative comments, they are just bloody jealous, you both have a unique personality, both talented, best wishes!
taking your husband's name is dumb, especially if you're a celebrity...
Although I understand its not for everybody for you to say its dumb is...um, well, dumb! Why is it dumb to have the same last name as the person your supposed to be spending the rest of your life with, not to mention your children.
You're dumb! :-p
Earth to psycho couple!!
Come in Pyscho 1...
Come in Psycho 2...
We have something for you.
what a fake marriage/relationship if i ever seen one!
I dunno, this is one of the first "Hollywood" mariages where the lady actually takes the mans last names
Really? You must spend a lot of time with the couple to have such a clear view of the truth.
JL, sometimes they do, they just keep their last name for stage purposes, like Jennifer Aniston. She had her name legally changed to Pitt, but kept the Aniston as her "stage name". Good idea on her part, since it didnt last.
I'd give her toys!!!! humph
They are so great together – I think this will be one of the few real-deal, forever-together marriages.
About the only thing they have going is what cheefsfury said........
Really? If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.
really....im betting 2 years or less................
I think this will be a long term relationship, somewhere in the 3-5 year range
I liked her better when she was a Christian Singer! She is so fake now and is lying to herself and her fans, as well as her freaky looking husband. I give them a year TOPS!
Hey ya she does!! I love her rack
and the bigger they are, the worse they look as time goes by.
Just stating fact here.......
A cup are we Valerie?
Oh no honey, that's not a A cup, that's the voice of experience. :)
