Katy Perry: I Want to Get Married “Soon”

Katy Perry is ready to walk down the aisle.

"I'd like to get married if I find that 'one' everyone talks about," she tells the June issue of UK Cosmopolitan. "I'm not in a rush, but last night I was thinking, 'Is it wrong for me to want to marry soon and have that feeling?'

"And I wonder when that person is going to present himself to me," continues the singer, who split from Gym Class Heroes' Travis McCoy last January — but has continued to cozy up to him. "To me, marriage isn't about bank accounts and houses; it's about finding the one you can hitch your hip to and build on each other's strengths," she goes on.

Perry tells Cosmo she's currently single — and not happy about it.

"I don't like being single, no. I live this fantastic life, full of all these magical things, and at the end of the day all I want to do is pick up my phone and share it with someone," she says. "The other day I'd sold a million records in the U.S. and I didn't have anyone to tell. It was actually a really lonely moment." But finding the right guy is "difficult because I'm so picky," she continues.

Can you believe these couples dated?

Being famous has made it harder to find romance as well.

"If I go out to dinner with a guy, people automatically think we're dating," Perry says. "And then when you do start dating, it becomes a race to the altar. I'm like, 'Come on, can't we just be boyfriend and girlfriend?'"

Her ideal guy?

"Firstly, he has to be stronger than I am mentally. And he can't be jealous because I'm a very touchy-feely person," she says. "And he'd need to be able to tell me both yes and no. I'll probably end up with someone who's a bit older, and a few steps ahead of me — I want someone I can learn from."

Perry admits she still has insecurities.

"One is that I have acne scars," she says. "I'm self-conscious about that, so sometimes I wear too much makeup to cover them up. I got acne at the start of my career -– it was a stressful time."
