Katy Perry OK with ‘weight gain’

Katy Perry is reportedly not worried by her recent weight gain of 10lbs.

The 28-year-old singer surprised audiences with her curvier figure onstage last week at a celebration in honour of US President Barack Obama's inauguration. The starlet’s shape is apparently down to being content in her relationship with John Mayer.

“Katy’s really happy with John and it’s helped her regain her appetite. They are having romantic dinners out and breakfast in bed,” a source revealed to British magazine Closer.

She has also been relaxing on her diet of five meals a day and eating out more with her beau. The pair went public with their relationship in December last year and have been inseparable since.

Katy has always been praised for her envious figure and her weight gain has not kept her from wearing her favourite clothing while performing. At her Washington appearance last week, Katy went onstage wearing a leotard emblazoned with the American Flag. The star seemed to be working with her new body size. Katy is doing her best to keep her figure under check but is not becoming obsessed with losing weight.

“She’s working out with a trainer a few times a week but she’s not fussed about doing a strict diet,” the source explained.
