She's due to hit the stage in Berlin as presenter of this year's MTV awards, but it seems Katy Perry has more than just music on her mind.
The I Kissed a Girl singer has been gushing over her new relationship with British funnyman Russell Brand.
"The wonderful thing is we both have our own kind of separate talents, careers and lives and we really respect each other."
"I think that's really important... we like to kind of keep this as our special thing," she says.
The 25-year-old has also revealed she's uncertain about Russell's reaction to the "naughty" costumes she's to wear at the glitzy event on Thursday.
"I think he'd actually prefer me to be more quirky and covered. I'm sure he'd prefer me in a complete mummy outfit."
