Katy Perry is considering becoming a mother in the next five years, and she insists she doesn't need a man to realise her baby dreams.
The Dark Horse singer, who was briefly married to funnyman Russell Brand and dated singer/songwriter John Mayer, is currently single, but she's not letting her unlucky-in-love status interfere with her baby plans.
She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I want to be doing that in the right time, and that's not in the next two years, you know? Maybe it's in a five-year plan, but I need to really be able to focus 100 per cent of my attention on it. I don't really want to take the child on tour. Not until, like, birth through five is over."
"I don't need a dude... It's 2014! We are living in the future; we don't need anything... I'm not anti-men. I love men. But there is an option if someone doesn't present himself."
