Re-Brand: Katy Perry to Take Hubby's Name

Tells DeGeneres she already answers to "Mrs. Brand"

Goodbye, Katy Perry. Hello, Katy Brand.

The newlywed singer said she's swapping her last name for that of hubby Russell Brand, formalizing a step she's already taken in her mind. Perry, who wed Bran on Oct. 23 in India, told Ellen DeGeneres she already answers to "Mrs. Brand."

"If I'm at an event or something like that and [someone] want[s] special attention. They go, '"Mrs. Brand!' and I go shwoosh," the singer said, turning her head to demonstrate

DeGeneres then asked if she's making that official.

"Yes, I am actually," Perry said. "I'm in the process."

She said she's still in the honeymoon phase with the madcap British comic.

"There's never a dull moment," she said. "He's a smorgasbord of things. A sense of humor is really important in our household. That's how we de-stress and we like to have a laugh."
