Katy Perry is due to exchange vows with the British funnyman Russel Brand later this year, a move that stunned fans. People were shocked to hear he was settling down and turning his back on his womanizer reputation, but Perry is adamant she hasn't forced Brand into responsibility – insisting he "doesn't have the stamina" to keep bedding a string of women.
She tells Britain's The Guardian, "He knows that I'm young and have friends and a social life, and he was attracted to me. Not, ';Oh let's find a version of myself in a female.' Every once in a while I need to remind him of that and he listens. It's all about communication. It's not about taming, because that won't last."
She adds, "Not everything stays perfect. We all start to slow down. I think he was ready for change. I mean, you just don't have the stamina to be in bed with 80 different women a week when you're 35 and trying to do good work. One of the things that attracted me to him is his brain. He's one of the smartest men I've met. I feel smarter just standing next to him."
