On The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, Katy Perry revealed that she is officially having her name changed to Katy Brand!

Though she's still in the process of taking Russell Brand's last name, she admits that she is already responding to people when they call her Mrs. Brand. She explains:

"Like if I'm at an event or something like that, and they want special attention, they go, 'Mrs. Brand!' And I go shwoosh [looks back]."

Ha! Take note reporters! That's an insider tip right there!

Isn't it so funny that nowadays it bigger news when a woman takes her husband's last name than not?

    Well Perry isn't her real last name anyways. I think Katy Brand sounds really good! It is kind of funny. But I like how women now aren't expected to take their man's last name. We have a choice!

    that's only in hollywood mario - every woman I know recently married has taken her husbands last name…….



  6. 6

    she might want to wait a month or two to see if the marriage sticks first right nicki zeiring?



  7. 7

    I was wondering if she would…there's a, comedian?, in the UK called Katy Brand though lol



  8. 8

    THEY BOTH LOOK HIGH ON CRACK… TRUTH.



  9. 9

    Am pretty sure in the real world it is still quite normal for the woman to take the man's name. Yep. Nothing noteworthy to those of us who live on planet Earth.



  10. 10

    She should wait at least 25 years to make sure the marriage lasts before changing her name legally.



  11. 11

    This is so dumb!
    A woman should NEVER take her husband's name! Do women have no respect for their own names?
    At least, here, a law prohibits a woman from "loosing' her maiden name.



  12. 12

    Her name officially became Katy Brand when they got married. It's not a decision a married woman makes.



  13. 13

    I agree with Perez — when he said that "it's bigger news to see a woman change her last name than to not" … I understand the whole woman independence issue but it should not be such a problem to take on your husband's last name if she wants to.



  14. 14

    Yeah someone mentioned this but it's the name of a comedienne in Britain. She's really successful over here. She makes fun of pop stars and is REALLY quite a large woman (putting it politely) so Katy Perry calling herself that will be really confusing and weird because they are complete opposites

    Re: NotHatingJustStating – im sorry but when getting married to your bf that means taking their last name. "we have a choice?" then dont marry then. thats your choice. just live with your bf and keep your last name, or get married with ur bf and take their last name how its supposed to be.

    and idk about all this man taking the woman's last name like i think jay-z took beyonce's. its always the woman takes the dads. always has been like that.

    Re: April 20th – thank you! i always liked your posts.

    Re: Ben_Dover – why wait 25 years to change a last name. she might as well would have waited to get married.



  18. 18

    Re: Sir Boo – exactly!!!! once u get married, ur name changes.



  19. 19

    lol i said always the woman that takes the dads * typo i meant to say the MAN's.



  20. 20

    this talentless Z list dudes are gonna split in a year or two,so Katy shouldn't change her surname,trying to promote herself



  21. 21

    Re: Sir Boo – Actually, you don't automatically get your husbands last name. You have to go to the Social Security office with your wedding certificate to have it legally changed. Otherwise you can still legally go by your maiden name.



  22. 22

    Re: curiousred – I decided to hypenate with my maiden name and my husbands name when we got married. That is only legally though. If a woman wants to be change her last name, than so be it. Our decision. It's not forced upon us.



  23. 23

    she's still a stupid whore either way…. and that "dreammy eyed" look ..thats called cocaine hun.



  24. 24

    Why use the old-fashioned expression "maiden name" ? It should be ."BIRTH NAME" like Ms Steinhem wrote somewhere. Agreed. Let's be 21st Century and let women keep their birth name.

    Mario…for the umpteenth time…SOME OF US WORK FOR A LIVING AND TAPE TELEVISION SHOWs to watch at the END OF OUR WORK DAY. STOP GIVING OUT SPOILERS WITHOUT WARNING!!!! Fucktard!!

    CONGRATULATIONS to Mr. &nd Mrs. Russ Brand and Katy Brand!

    Re: curiousred – That's unfortunate that your country doesn't allow a woman to CHOOSE whether she wants her husband's name. In America, women can take their husband's name or keep their own…purely, 100% her CHOICE. Hope your country catches up soon! ♥



  28. 28

    Re: Sir Boo – Who told you that??? WRONG. Your name doesn't change unless you go and change it. You have to go down to the social security administration with your marriage certificate and request the name change. Or your name stays the same by default.

    Re: Alliestp – You are just plain stupid if you come to a gossip blog and don't want your gossip spoiled before you can see it on TV. Watch your program first and THEN visit the blog. Effing DUH. Kinda extremely stupid to do it the other way around!

    Don Cherrys'(famous canadian hockey analyst) son in law took his wifes last name to carry on the Cherry name

    Re: DIE PEREZ HILTON! – i guess your opinion is law then huh? it is perfectly fine for a woman to keep her given name and not take her husband's. and it IS a choice. My mother has been happily married to my father for 33 years and she has kept her own name and he has his own name. My sister and I received hyphenated last names. NOT A BIG DEAL. in fact it is easier for a woman to keep her last name because she doesn't have to go through all the paper work with bank accounts, social security cards, licenses, etc..just to change her last name. not taking your husband's last name does not mean you don't love them as much as a woman who does.



  32. 32

    Uh… you do not automatically receive your husband's name once you get married. You have to change it at the SS office. Anyway, most people that get married (in the chemistry field at least) after they receive their PhDs keep their last names.
