Katy Perry Explains Decision to Marry Russell Brand After Short Dating

The singer credits the British comedian for keeping her grounded, adding that she has no problem with his past reputation as a drug and sex-crazed Lothario.

Pop star Katy Perry has defended her decision to wed Russell Brand so soon after meeting, insisting the British comedian has helped to stabilize her hectic life. The "I Kissed a Girl" hitmaker first met Brand at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards and the couple became engaged in December the same year during a romantic holiday in India.

She admits her friends and family were shocked at the speed at which their romance progressed, but Perry is convinced he's exactly what she needs to keep her grounded. In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, she says, "Some people were like, 'Whoa, marriage so soon - your whole life!' But Russell has really made me more stable. I'm burning at such incredible speed that I need someone stronger than me."

And Perry is not concerned about the funnyman's past reputation as a drug and sex-crazed Lothario - because her own father dabbled in mind-altering substances during his years as a hippie before finding God and becoming a Christian minister. She adds, "(Brand) has never given me any reason to doubt him. A difficult past is part of my dad's testimony too. I think Russell is a great example of how you can change. Beyond his addiction, he's a sensitive person, and emotional like a lot of good actors. He's sweet and lovely."

The couple is planning to marry later this year.
