Katy Perry changing her name to Katy Brand




We're already mystified that Katy Perry married Brit weirdo Russell Brand, but now she's making it officially official: The singer is changing her name to Katy Brand. That's a good name for her personal fashion line, but ehh ....

The 26-year-old said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday that she's in the process of making the legal move, but she goes by the name informally already, since people call her by that name to try to get her 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," she said, as she turned to look behind her.

The 26-year-old also jokingly sparred a bit with Ellen's other guest, Helen Mirren, who said she was "very jealous" of Katy for marrying Brand.

"She needs to step off my man," Perry said. "Actually, I kind of don't mind that someone else takes some of the responsibility, because it's a lot of work. … There's never a dull moment." No, we're sure that spastic goofball is just a barrel of laughs around the clock. Trivia: Katy already changed her name from Kathryn Hudson to her mother's maiden Perry to keep from being mistaken for Kate Hudson, and that seemed to work out fine.
