Katy Perry Talks Falling In Love: "I'm Pretty Wild And Not Interested In Taming Anyone"

The 'I Kissed A Girl' singer admits the men she usually falls for are "challenging".

Katy Perry has opened up about her love life and confessed that she likes "challenging" men because she is "pretty wild" herself.

The 'Firework' singer was married to British comedian Russell Brand and is back dating John Mayer again.

She has also revealed that great intelligence has been a deciding pull on her decision to enter relationships.

"The men I have gone for are challenging, yes, but they're also wildly intelligent and poetic," she told Elle. "I'm not interested in taming anyone - I'm pretty wild myself."

The US star opened up about her split from John, before their recent reconciliation, and admitted it wasn't her decision.

"He pulled away," she said. "That was a big hello for me. I realised I could lose the person I loved and I had to deal with some things, issues I think a lot of women have."

"You can be strong in one aspect of your life but submissive in another. In relationships, it was hard for me to speak up and set boundaries. I think that a lot of that has to do with the fear of loss."

Meanwhile, the singer has this week announced details of her new album 'Prism' and confirmed that there will be no duets with John included on the record.
