After some life-changing trip to a few art galleries and private collections in Los Angeles, Katy Perry told E! News at the MOCA's 35th Anniversary Gala that she wants to "slowly become an art collector." Perry said that she is drawn to "modern contemporary art and pop art, of course," and that she enjoys photography by Cindy Sherman and Lee Friedlander.

We're not ones to bash people who express interest in the arts, but it does seem a little random that Perry is just now discovering that she likes it. In the same interaction with E!, she also said that she was "really interested in having an art history education." Hopefully she sticks with it and builds a meaningful collection some day, instead of spending her riches on the latest art fads.
