It was last December that pop princess [lastfm]Katy Perry[/lastfm] became engaged to actor Russell Brand, the bad boy womanizer turned drug-and-alcohol free gentleman, and now Perry opened up about how his lifestyle has influenced her.
The 25-year-old California native said her fiancé’s sobriety has been a “good influence” on her.
I still love to go out with my friends and I still like Pinot Grigio. But I’ve learnt from some of my hangovers and I don’t drink as much as I used to. My last big night out was probably the Coachella festival. I’m happy that Russell is sober because it’s had a good influence on me. It steers me in a more positive direction.
However, during her interview with Glamour Magazine UK, Perry, wanted to make it clear that Brand’s positive change was his own doing, not hers. She added:
It’s not about taming. He changed for himself. Everyone knows no one will change unless they want to change themselves. It was a cosmic collision. We work together well in the relationship because there’s no arguing. It’s important to have your communication on the same level.
It’s wonderful to hear of talented performers in the entertainment industry who steer clear of the bad stuff that could otherwise bring them down. And Perry‘s right, a person will only change if they want to. Great for Brand for assuming control and pairing up with a woman that understands and loves him for it!
