Perry: I've dated non-famous guys

Katy Perry has revealed that she has dated men who aren't famous in the past - but it can be easier to go out with someone who understands celebrity life.

The Roar singer, who is divorced from Russell Brand and recently split from John Mayer, told Rolling Stone that she wasn't limiting herself to the A-list when looking for love.

Asked about dating non-celebrities, she said: "I've done that before. It's not that they have to be famous, although there's a level of understanding when they're in the same business, you know?

"They understand what it means when you're tired from a show or the tour's exhausting you or if an interview went wrong - they know all the ins and outs, so you can just walk in to the house with a certain face and they understand, you know? Rather than, like, having to explain everything and that takes two, three hours.

"And what I really like is someone that understands music, because I love music. So anybody that understands the power of music, I'm usually instantly attracted to."
