Perry talks boyfriend checklist

Katy Perry has said she is looking for a different kind of boyfriend as she heads into her 30s.

The Roar singer has been married to Russell Brand and her most recent relationship was with singer John Mayer, but she has told Harper's Bazaar that she now has a clearer idea of what she wants.

Katy, who will be 30 in October, said: "As I'm heading into my 30s I have less time for bulls**t. I look for the same characteristics: a sense of humour - someone who makes me laugh off the charts - someone who is sensitive, someone who loves and understands music, and who is really smart.

"A lot of times I've ended up with people who have been intimidated by me, unfortunately."

Katy added that she had changed in recent years: "In my late 20s, I've educated myself more than I did growing up because I wasn't able to have a great education.

"I had to learn about taking care of myself before I could take care of others. I want to mommy everyone. I want to take care of them. I want to save them, and I forget myself in the meantime. I learned that through therapy."

She revealed that she meditated five or six times a week and generally had a healthy lifestyle, but liked to have a day off every now and then.

"I'll have a cigarette, which I know is absolutely horrible for me, after a few drinks when I'm having a week off. I don't do black tar heroin," she said.
