Perry, Brand hope to start charity
London, Dec 24 (IANS) Singer Katy Perry and her comedian husband Russell Brand want to utilize their fame and fortune to set up a foundation to help the poor and needy.
‘We have this plan to set up a foundation to help people, feed them, clothe them, give shelter. We don’t want to use our fame just to sit on our money on a mountain, we want to do something with it,’ Perry has been quoted as saying by contactmusic.com.
The singer says she is amazed at her husband’s transformation from a heroin addict to a top comic in Britain and subsequent move as an actor in the US.
‘He’s so intelligent. So full of wonderful plans. If you really want to know what made me fall in love with him was how amazing he was with people, particularly with children. Russell has changed his life and wants to help other people change theirs.
‘For all his naughtiness on the surface, underneath he’s truly good. My parents adore him. People laugh when I say Russell is a man of God but I’m just waiting for them to see what he does,’ she said.
