Not a lot of people have heard of the small town of Wetumpka, Alabama, but superstar Katy Perry happens to be one of them.  Located about 20 miles outside of Montgomery, Alabama, Wetumpka is a peaceful town filled with people who have almost no connection to the LA lifestyle that Katy Perry wants to escape and that’s exactly what she likes about it.

In a surprise to everyone in Los Angeles and certainly everyone in Wetumpka, Katy Perry announced today in an interview that she was “tired of the LA lifestyle” and that she wanted to “live in a place where people were people and whose sincerity you didn’t have to question”.  She recently visited Wetumpka while spending a few days in the area for a relative’s funeral.  According to her assistant, “Katy immediately fell in love with the relaxed lifestyle and the tranquil beauty of the surrounding countryside and was telling everyone that she was going to move there.”

“I want a farm, I want cattle, I want chickens!”  Katy told the magazine while laughing.  “I’m not giving up my career, I just want to move to a place that feels so different than what I’ve been used to all my life.  For me, that place is Wetumpka, Alabama.”  We’re sure her move there will be quite the economic boon for the small rural Alabama town and possibly even provide a bit of unwanted attention from the outside world.

    I think this might become a trend amongst people who must be amongst the Hollywood elite in the pursuit of their acting or singing careers. There is something to be said for the small town environment where you can rest from the crush and rush of the Hollywood dog eat dog pace. For some like Katy, there is a new realization that there are better places to be in their down time. This is refreshing to see…

  6. My son graduated from high school in 1997 and got a scholarship at Troy State AL in Troy AL and has lived there ever since loves the hunting and peace and quiet!worked in Wetumpka as one of his first jobs at a Rent a Center LOL. Hope Katy loves it?❤️
