Katy Perry: I Googled Myself & I Liked It

How did singer Katy Perry discover that Russell Brand was going to propose to her? Turns out that Perry googles herself on a regular basis and found out Brand had purchased a ring.

Perry explained to reporters as she walked down the red carpet to the Grammys this week that she uses Google Alerts to track news about herself:

Unfortunately, I still Google myself sometimes.

I saw it on Google alerts. I’m going to be honest!

That’s from Monsters & Critics, and many other publications including the New York Daily News have the same quote.
