Katy Perry to Take Russell Brand's Last Name Katy Perry may have made a name for herself as a 'California Gurl,' but the star will be getting a new name soon: Mrs. Brand!

The 'Firework' singer, who married comedian Russell Brand on Oct. 23, tells PEOPLE she is in the process of adding his last name to her own.

Perry, a former Christian singer, who has called her often-raunchy husband a "great man of God," says that some people are already referring to her by her married name.

"If I'm at an event or something like that, and they want special attention, they go, 'Mrs. Brand!'" she says.
