Katy Perry kept Russell Brand waiting

He kissed the girl – but not on the first date.

Katy Perry reveals in the August issue of Esquire magazine that she refused to go home with fiancé Russell Brand their first night together and made him wait for sex.

The pair had been out clubbing but self-confessed “sex addict” Brand, 35, was mistaken when he assumed they’d continue the fun back at his place. “Can you imagine the horrible feeling he had when he was used to getting everything he wanted?' the “California Gurls” singer, 25, tells the magazine, adding that she’s since tamed the once wild Brit comedian. “He basically used to be a professional prostitute,” she says, “and now he's not.”

Perry also shares details about the over-the top marriage proposal the “Get Him to the Greek” star arranged at India’s Rambagh Palace on New Year’s Eve.

“Russell had a little turban on. We went into the lobby and there was a horse and carriage waiting, which took us to where we were going to eat: this tent made out of tens of thousands of roses,” she says. “There were men holding fires on the pathway, under a blue moon.”

There was also a painted elephant, which the two rode to another area to watch fireworks. Says Perry, 'The elephant freaked out: He thought it was the apocalypse. So I was freaking out, thinking I was going to end up in a wheelchair…”

Luckily the couple made it safely to an area with waterfalls, a love seat, and a table arranged with bunches of beautiful flowers in orange and fuchsia. “The ring,” says Perry, “was underneath them.’

    I like the movies Russel has been in and I liked a few of Katy's songs but this couple is just ugly! He looks like a hobo and she looks like a plastic doll.

      I would agree with you had he not ended up with that hotness... not necessarily a smart couple, but let's just say they won't need many smarts in private quarters...

      I totally agree with you. So many women think they can change their man. Well to all you women out there who think you can, YOU CAN'T.

      The proposal was cool though, I would love to have a date like that, with or with out a proposal.
