Russell Brand has given Katy Perry self-confidence
The California Gurls singer has revealed she often goes to bed with her make-up on because she feels so "ugly", but is slowly learning how to embrace her inner beauty because of her doting fiance.
She explained: "I think he taught me a lot about inner beauty and confidence in myself. I don`t really feel pretty ever. Without makeup, I feel ugly. And so I would have to sleep with makeup on, or feel ugly and gross. He looks beyond all of that, which is such a win, because I`ve never felt that with anybody."
The 25-year-old pop star is certain their romance will last because Russell is in love with her personality as well as her body.
She told Seventeen magazine: "He`s in love with the person inside of me, and the outside of me is just a bonus."
Russell proposed to Katy in the early hours of New Year`s Day (01.01.10) during a romantic trip to India, following a whirlwind romance when they first met at MTV Video Music Awards in New York last year.
During this first meeting, the brunette beauty admits she was instantly surprised by Russell, who was known as a ladies` man before he fell for Katy.
She said: "He changed my mind about him the moment I met him. I said, `You are a better person than how you are portrayed.` "
