Google ruined Katy Perry’s proposal

Katy Perry’s ghost at the 2011 Coachella Music Festival in Indio, CA (4/16)

Damn you complex search algorithms and your ability to systematize massive amounts of information, DAMN YOU TO HELL! From Contact Music:

Pop star Katy Perry made a New Year resolution to quit searching for stories about herself on the internet after she read about husband Russell Brand’s planned marriage proposal before he’d popped the question. The I Kissed a Girl hitmaker revealed last year that funnyman Brand’s proposal in 2009 came as no surprise as she’d received a Google alert about it weeks before.

Perry tells The Sunday Times Magazine, “I’m four months Google-free. I don’t Google myself any more. That was my New Year’s resolution. I don’t read papers. I don’t even look at reviews. I have a good team around me so if anything pops up that’s really good or bad I’ll know about it. Generally I feel much better being able to live my life like a normal person and not read yesterday’s news.”

Katy thinks that just because she isn’t Googling herself that that means she’s living her life “like a normal person”? Sorry Katy, most normal people don’t have millions of dollars in the bank, worldwide fame, and tits that have caused more stiffness than rigor mortis. The truth of the matter is that since Katy has still never taken a nude photo, she’s probably not the only person that’s stopped Googling her name. Seriously, don’t be such a prude.
