'I feel like a walking cartoon most of the time.'

Katy Perry does. The pop star has owned up to her feelings recently after providing the voice for Smurfette in the upcoming film The Smurfs. Perry's sound byte became the top celebrity quote on infofooty.com.

The pop star was selected to give voice to the little blue cartoon character after producers had heard tapes of her speaking voice and thought it sounded cute. Perry says she wants to do more voicing for animation because cartoons are her 'go-to for a feel-good time'.
