London: Pop star Katy Perry, who married British comedian Russell Brand last month, is planning to apply for dual citizenship.

The California girl wed Brand in India and insists easy entry to the UK was not a factor in her decision to get married - but it helps, reported Cosmopolitan magazine.

The 26-year-old singer hopes the citizenship will make her frequent trans-Atlantic trips less stressful and help her avoid the long queues in immigration at London airports.

Perry said, "A gay couple I know are going to get married for British citizenship and I`m like, `Oh!`. But of course I want to get dual citizenship. Those lines at Heathrow (airport) are disgusting. So, I mean, that would be a perk, right?"
