Katy Perry Changing Name to Katy Brand!

By: / December 8, 2010

Fans may know her as Katy Perry, sex symbol, Teenage Dreamer and wearer of latex dresses, but pretty soon she’ll be Katy Brand thank you very much!

Appearing on The Ellen Degeneres Show this Wednesday, newlywed Katy reveals she’s “in the process” of changing her name to that of new hubby Russell Brand. In fact, she’s already trying out her new branding at various events and parties.

When asked if she ever goes by Mrs. Brand, Katy tells Ellen: “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 shwoosh [looks back].”

Mrs. Brand is so secure in her marriage, she isn’t fretting over Helen Mirren’s crush on her husband. Helen, who co-stars with Russell in the upcoming film remake Arthur, told Access Hollywood this week that she is “the proud owner of a pair of Russell’s yellow underpants.”

After joking that Helen best “step off” her man, Katy gave the Oscar-winner permission to crush on her hubby, saying: “Actually I kind of don’t mind that someone else takes some of the responsibility because it’s a lot of work.”

Here’s to you, Mrs. Brand!
