Perry quits Google after marriage spoiler
Pop star Katy Perry made a New Year resolution to quit searching for stories about herself on the Internet after she read about husband Russell Brand's planned marriage proposal before he'd popped the question.
The "I Kissed a Girl" hitmaker revealed last year that funnyman Brand'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."
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 Brand household now has little use for an Internet connection. She revealed last year that Brand had already stopped Googling himself.
