The new couple, Katy Perry and Russell Brand, is rumored to record a duet track together. They are said to have entered the Sunset Sound studios in Los Angeles, working on a rendition of Edward Lear's 1871 poem "The Owl And The Pussycat".
"Russell was just messing around in the studio with Katy," a source told The Sun. "He was pretending to sing into the mic and started reciting the poem, The Owl And The Pussycat, with the lines, 'Oh lovely Pussy! Oh Pussy my love, what a beautiful Pussy you are'."
"That's when it dawned on everyone. It was actually really good. With work, it could be a really interesting track, evocative of The Goons or Monty Python. They were very harmonious. Everyone was transfixed."
The poem itself reportedly has also been used as their nicknames to each other. The 'Owl' is Russell, and the 'Pussycat' is Katy. "It transpired the poem is a private joke between the couple," the source explained.
