London: Pop star Katy Perry, who is married to comedian Russell Brand, has vowed not to follow in the footsteps of David and Victoria Beckham and cash in on their `celebrity couple` quotient.

Perry wed the `Get Him To The Greek` star last month, but has been busy promoting her latest album, `Teenage Dream` and new fragrance, Purr, while Brand has been preparing for a new movie role.

The 26-year-old singer dismissed rumours the pair is planning to go into business together like the Beckhams, but has praised the football ace and his wife for their high-profile ventures, reported News of the World.

"I have no criticism for them at all, they`re the Beckhams. They`re as big as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

"Our map is different. Me and Russell have different goals. He`s really intensely into his book right now. He`s also editing and is about to star in another film. I`m halfway through the record and about to launch my perfume, Purr. There`s a lot going on," said Perry.
