It's well known that Katy Perry has a penchant for English guys, having dated the likes of Orlando Bloom and comedian Russell Brand. Speaking to Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw on Thursday, the 32-year-old - who has just been announced as the headliner at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Hull - poked fun at her failed relationships with her exes, all the while revealing her desire to visit a Yorkshire pudding factory later this year.
When quizzed about enjoying her Sunday roasts, the star replied: "Of course I've been to a Sunday roast, babes. Many of my English boyfriends that I've had along the way (have made them). I've fancied them. I'm very attracted to their accents of course, so posh." She added: "I've had bubble and squeak too. I've had it all… I love a fresh-baked Yorkshire pudding."
Katy Perry recently ended her relationship with Orlando Bloom
The comments come weeks after Katy confirmed her split from Orlando, 40, after one year of dating. In a bid to prevent exaggerated rumours from flying around the internet, the couple's representative said: "Before rumours or falsifications get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time." Shortly after the announcement, Katy revealed that nobody was to "blame", telling her followers: "HOW BOUT A NEW WAY OF THINKING FOR 2017!? You can still be friends & love your former partners! No one's a victim or a villain, get a life y'all!" [sic]
Katy was previously married to Russell Brand in 2010
The American pop star was previously married to comedian Russell. They tied the knot in 2010 in a traditional Hindu ceremony in Rajasthan, India, but fans were left stunned when Russell filed for divorce shortly after Christmas in 2011. Two years later, Katy shed further light on the end of her 14-month marriage to Russell, revealing she wasn't ready to have children. "I'm definitely not there yet," she told Marie Claire. "When I decide to have a family, I'll just want to be Mom for a little bit. (Russell) really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn't ready - I think it was a way of control."
