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."
