Katy Perry has discovered a new passion for art collecting and is excited about getting an art history education from her well-connected friends.
Katy Perry is planning to become an art collector.
The 'Teenage Dream' singer has decided to add another string to her bow by investing in fine art after becoming interested in the expensive hobby thanks to Beverly Hills gallerist Marc Selwyn.
The newly-single star told E! News: ''I'm going to slowly become an art collector. Today, we had an all-day art crawl. We got to see some private collections from some people's homes and then we went to a couple of galleries.''

All of the guests and winners at last night's Harpers Bazaar Women of the Year Awards looked utterly stunning on the red carpet. Many have noted Emily Blunt's show-stopping backless orange number, and how beautiful Daisy Lowe looked in her timelessly-classic sequined gown, but the wardrobes of the guests were not the reason anyone showed up, nor why the awards are so important to the influential women of the world.
"Now we [women] are expected to do everything, which probably isn't human," the Telegraph quotes Stella McCartney saying "and we are in danger of burning out if we try to do everything." A full interview with McCartney, as well as with other winners of the awards, will be published in the December issue of Harper's Bazaar, which will be dedicated to the women. French actress Marion Cotillard will appear on the front cover, with whom the magazine also has a full interview inside.
In a year flush with the monarchy, Queen Elizabeth has also won the accolade of Icon of the Year. The queen has as yet not commented upon this win, but we've no doubt she'll be celebrating in her own way. Ambassadors of the year were awarded to three of this year's Olympic winners, Jessica Ennis, Victoria Pendleton and Ellie Simmons, who have jointly provided brand new, healthy role models for young women today. A special award was given In Memoriam to Marie Colvin who was an American reporter, killed earlier this year while covering the siege of Homs in Syria, where a nail bomb exploded, killing her.

Dennis Hopper's art collection will be sold at auction next week.
The 'Apocalypse Now' star - who died of cancer last year aged 74 - wanted his pieces, including works by Bruce Conner, Annie Leibovitz, Andy Warhol, and Cindy Sherman, to be sold off after his death and the money to go to his four children because it would be too difficult for them to distribute it between them.
Family friend Alex Hitz - who is also a trustee of the late actor's estate - said: "It was Dennis' wish to sell everything. How do you cut a Warhol and all those other wonderful pieces by four?"
