Katy Perry Quits Google After Marriage Spoiler

May 2, 2011 (6:02 pm) GMT
Katy Perry made a New Year resolution to quit searching for stories about herself on the internet after she read about Russell Brand's planned marriage proposal before he'd popped the question.

The "I Kissed a Girl" hitmaker revealed last year that funnyman 's proposal in 2009 came as no surprise as she'd received a Google alert about it weeks before.

She made a vow at the start of this year to stop reading about herself online - and she's adamant the decision has made her life "much better".

Katy Perry tells The Sunday Times Magazine, "I'm four months Google-free. I don't Google myself any more. That was my New Year's resolution. I don't read papers. I don't even look at reviews. I have a good team around me so if anything pops up that's really good or bad I'll know about it. Generally I feel much better being able to live my life like a normal person and not read yesterday's news."

The decision means the Perry household now has little use for an internet connection - she revealed last year that Brand had already stopped Googling himself.
