Katy Perry: Art Collector?

Katy Perry has decided on a very expensive (and potentially lucrative) hobby since breaking up with John Mayer.

The singer is learning about becoming an art collector, with the help of Beverly Hills gallerist Marc Selwyn. Selwyn is introducing Katy to Pablo Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein, James Turell, and Jeff Koons, and she is loving it.

"I'm going to slowly become an art collector," Katy told E! at the MOCA's 35th Anniversary Gala Presented by Louis Vuitton. "Today, we had an all-day art crawl. We got to see some private collections from some people's homes and then we went to a couple of galleries. What I'm really drawn to is modern contemporary art and pop art, of course. Also some key photography. I've always loved Cindy Sherman and today I got interested in Lee Friedlander…This is all brand new. I'm really interested in having an art history education."

Katy's seven-month Prismatic World Tour kicks off in Belfast on May 7, and the Skittles-hued pop star is clearly very very excited (as are we!).

"I'm challenging myself again, pushing my limits as I do, as a Scorpion does," she said. "I'm very excited because I believe this is my best work yet as far as live performances. It's going to be just as colorful and fun as before, bit's obviously not based on candy. It's grown up. It's more mature."

We can't wait!
