    The newly blonde Katy Perry told Reuters that the secret to her success is the people she surrounds herself with, as "good people" aid in how she deals with the constant pressures of fame and of being one of the world's biggest pop stars. In light of Amy Winehouse's death, as she was surrounded by people who offered her lots of drugs, it's a poignant point for Perry to make.

    Perry, who swapped out her signature black locks for a golden shade that is actually closer to her natural color, told the news service that she is able to avoid the wild, party lifestyle thanks to the help of honest, supportive people around her, such as her British actor/comedian husband Russell Brand, himself a recovering drug addict who is now clean and sober and who penned one of many touching tributes to the late, great Winehouse.

    "I like to keep good people around me, people that aren't always 'yes' people, people that sometimes it's difficult to be around because they're not 'yes' people," she said. "My husband is definitely one of those, he keeps me accountable and, you know, he's not a fan, even though he is a fan...he supports me and loves me but he doesn't bullshit me, which is really important."

    People generally can't handle fame, so surrounding yourself with the right support network is crucial, KP!
