Perry's Antique Ambition
KATY PERRY has an alternative line of work in mind if her singing career dries up - she dreams of fronting an antiques show.
The I Kissed A Girl hitmaker's mother was an antiques dealer and Perry grew up fascinated by old artifacts.
And despite shooting to international stardom, the singer still loves foraging in second-hand shops.
She says, Any girl knows there is no better feeling than getting a great bargain. I love it! Its the thrill, the chase and the chance to get something great. So many people have no idea what it is they are just giving away.
Ill put the hair under a cap and put on a pair of sunglasses and rarely get noticed when I am on the searches. I am like a pirate or a scavenger ready to swoop when I see something worthwhile.
When I was a kid my dad would wake me up every Saturday morning and wed go out looking for stuff. Plus my mum was an antiques dealer in London, so I guess some of it trickled down to me.
And Perry would consider a career change if the opportunity arose: I wish they had asked me to host (U.K television show) Antiques Roadshow when Michael Aspel left. It would be my dream job.
