Katy Perry had a family Christmas to remember - her brother announced he was gay.
The I Kissed A Girl singer, who is dating funnyman Russell Brand, made the announcement to fans via her Twitter.com page.
She wrote, "My brother finally came out today! Yay! Louboutins for everyone! Merry Christmas!"
But she later hinted she had spoken too soon, adding, "Sorry guys i need those Louboutins back, i spoke too soon. Hopefully next year."
It seems like the singer was glad to be at home with her folks at Christmas - she posted photos of her tree and a baby relative dressed up as Santa Claus on her blog.
She also wrote, "OMG Carolers just came by my house! How amazing! I love my neighbrohood (sic)!"
