I've always liked Katy Perry
, which is why I rooted for her marriage to be successful and was sad when she couldn't work it out (breaking up is never fun, no matter who you are or how much money you make) and why I hate that she's with John Mayer. I am as excited for her at the announcement that she's Unicef's latest Goodwill Ambassador (previous holders of the title include David Beckham, Orlando Bloom, Jackie Chan and Danny Glover) as Katy appeared to be during the announcement which was held in New York on Tuesday. Katy received her Unicef shirt and posed with a bunch of her young fans, making goofy faces for the pictures they were taking with their cell phones. I really do like this woman. She's sexy and famous and whatever but she hasn't forgotten the poor roots where she came from.
