In a recent radio interview, Katy Perry admits she finds Englishmen’s humor irresistible and the reason why, per Music News.

In a discussion on U.K. radio show Heart Breakfast with hosts Jamie Theakston and Ellie Taylor, Perry explains that English gentlemen are her type.

“I think I like English gentlemen because there’s something in that kind of sarcastic dark sense of humor and I like that they sound really eloquent and there’s more history in the U.K. than there is in America,” the “Dark Horse” chart-topper expressed.

“They sound like they’ve got tradition,” she added.

“Actually they have more tradition and I like that. There’s tea time. We don’t really have many traditions here in America.”

She spilled that the way to her heart is a breakfast of beans on toast and a cup of tea, a popular beverage in England.

“I’ve got to tell you every time I come to the U.K., my first breakfast is baked beans on toast with a nice cuppa,” she revealed.

In 2010, Perry married British actor and comedian Russell Brand. They divorced in 2012 and have moved on to new partners.

Brand is now re-married and has two children with Scottish lifestyle blogger Laura Gallacher.

Perry found love in Orlando Bloom and is currently engaged to The Lord of the Rings British actor.

Today, Katy dropped a new single, “Small Talk,” worldwide. It was co-written with “How Long” talent Charlie Puth, Johan Carlsson, and Jacob Kasher Hindlin.
