Katy Perry has vowed not to stop being sexy just because she is a married woman.

The 'Firework' singer - who tied the knot with British comedian Russell Brand last month - admitted while she is looking forward to having children with her new spouse, she doesn't plan on becoming any less "provocative".

She said: "Being married feels lovely. I want to have children and start a family. When you find your husband some people might slow down. But I'm still young. I have a lot of energy and individual goals to reach. I'm very independent, like a cat.

"People tell me, 'Oh, you're gonna be boring now you're married'. I say, 'Look at f***ing Beyonce!' She's married to Jay-Z. She's so sexy but she's a married woman. She absolutely rocks it. I won't be less sexy or provocative."

The 26-year-old beauty also revealed while she is generally a "good girl", she is well aware of her sex appeal and likes to use it to "tease" men.

Katy added to the News of the World newspaper: "I'm a good girl because I believe in love, integrity and respect. I'm a bad girl because I like to tease.

"I know that I have sex appeal in my deck of cards."
