Katy Perry has announced her engagement to British comedian Russell Brand after four months of dating, a rep for the pop star confirmed to Glamour Magazine on Wednesday. According to Katy’s publicist, Brand popped the question in a tent at the foot of a mountain, while the couple was vacationing in India over the holidays.
In an interview for the mag’s February 2010 issue, a smitten Katy opened up about the man she met and almost instantly fell in love with at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009.
“When I find a partner who is my teammate,” Katy said. “I’m not going to play by any rules, I’m just going to go with my heart. Why wait? I just wrote a song [that goes], ‘They say it’s hard to meet your match, gotta find my other half so we can make a perfect shape.’”
Congrats to Russell and Katy!
