You won't believe what Katy Perry swears helps her dating life.
Instead of relying on things like charm, intelligence or just her buxom bod and millions to attract a man, Katy Perry uses ... crystals.
Don't worry though, they're not the Walter White type.
She told Cosmo, "I don't stay single for long. I carry a lot of rose quartz, which attracts the male. Maybe I need to calm it down with the amethyst. I'm not like Professor Higgins with my sex life. I'm not super strict. For me, the most important thing about sex is connection."
(Um, what does a professor of phonetics have to do with anything?)
Rose quartz, according to new wave-y types, reportedly promotes "unconditional love, forgiveness, infinite peace and compassion," while amethyst allegedly promotes inner peace. Since there's no scientific basis for those theories -- and considering Perry, who's also an avid believer in astrology, has a track record that includes notorious lothario Russell Brand, single dad with a rap sheet Diplo and manwhore of all manwhores John Mayer -- maybe those hokey tricks aren't working as well as she thinks they are. Because above all sorts of tips, tricks and trinkets, sound judgment works the best.
Maybe being single for a while would give her some of that.
