Katy Perry wants jokes on dates

Katy Perry wants jokes on dates

Katy Perry likes a man who tells jokes.

The 'Dark Horse' singer - who was previously married to Russell Brand and has an on/off relationship with John Mayer - enjoys "simple" dates but the conversation must flow.

She said: "My perfect date is really so simple - I like connection, good conversation and jokes.

"I love jokes. Plus good food and maybe a movie."

The 30-year-old pop star finds it hard to switch off but she is looking forward to being able to do "normal" things when her tour ends.

Asked if she is good at switching off, she said: "No - put me on a desert island with no phone and I'll already probably have a phone hidden in some box. But I love what I do.

"This summer I want to have genuine, normal experiences, like going to the farmers' market and picking fruit.

"This is a fantastic life I live but you don't get to grab your own coffee any more. But please don't feel sorry for me!"

And when she isn't working, Katy enjoys having "women's meetings" with her pals.

She told Britain's OK! magazine: "I love girls. I have an incredible, strong group of girls. We do this thing called 'women's meetings' where we talk about our dreams and what we're grateful for and we put flowers in our hair and drink tea. Stuff like that. I want to treat women like I would treat myself. We have to stick together."
