Katy Perry, who graces the cover of Seventeen's September issue, dishes to the magazine about her fiance, Russell Brand.

The 25-year-old singer tells Seventeen that despite the stories of Brand's shallow, womanizing ways, she knew the first time she met him, that he wasn't what he seemed. "He changed my mind about him the moment I met him. I said, 'You are a better person than how you are portrayed.'"

But if you're finding it difficult to picture Russell Brand having a remotely serious discussion, here's what appears to have sealed the deal for his fiancee—he loves her just the way she is, even au naturel. And shockingly, Russell loves her brain more than her beauty.
