Telepathic bride Katy Perry

Katy Perry got Russell Brand to propose to her by using telepathy.

The ‘California Gurls’ singer – who got engaged to the reformed hellraiser in December after a whirlwind romance – constantly ‘told’ the British comic star she wanted him to pop the question by using the power of her mind.

She explained: “I was trying to make him tell me that he wanted to marry me telepathically. Every night we looked into each other’s eyes and I was thinking, ‘Please ask me, please ask me.’

“Then, when we finally talked about the idea of getting married, he admitted he was thinking the same – he’d been trying to tell me that I was the woman he wanted to marry by communicating it with his eyes.

“So all the time we’d been sending each other subliminal messages!”

The 25-year-old pop star – who previously dated Gym Class Heroes lead vocalist Travis McCoy – also revealed she and Russell like to make up stories about their impending nuptials so their true wedding plans remain secret.

She told Britain’s Star magazine: “Russell makes up these really crazy stories about me and our wedding. I make up stories, too – I said he was a ‘groomzilla’. He said I farted a lot, but I’ve never farted in front of him – honestly!

“I hear these crazy stories – we are going to get married in latex, underwear, in Spandex, in Japan, in India, in Thailand. But I think all this craziness about my marriage is really funny.

“And I don’t set the record straight as I love this chaotic circus of wrong information, because it is not really anyone else’s business beside the people that we have invited and us, of course.”

Katy Perry feared she would end in a “wheelchair” when Russell Brand proposed to her – because of a frightened elephant.

The ‘California Gurls’ singer says the British funnyman pulled out all the stops on the night they got engaged (31.12.09) but she was left worried for her safety by the combination of loud fireworks and a nervous elephant.

Katy – who said “I do” to Russell in Jaipur, India – recalled: “A horse and carriage took us to where we were going to eat: this tent made out of tens of thousands of roses. There were men holding fires on the pathway, under a blue moon… We then rode to another part of the hotel on a painted elephant and watched the fireworks. The elephant freaked out: he thought it was the apocalypse. So I was freaking out, thinking I was going to end up in a wheelchair at 25, because of an elephant. But we lived, and we went to another area that Russell had set up by these waterfalls. There was this balcony that had a love seat, and a bunch of flowers on a table. The ring was underneath them.”
