Katy Perry‘s life is becoming a soap opera.

At least, that’s how the pop star sees it, given all the rumors surrounding her in recent days.

First, there was speculation that she was expecting, which she colorfully denied. Now, there have been rumors that her marriage is on the rocks – something Perry also denied Wednesday night with a joke on Twitter.

“First I’m pregnant & then I’m divorced. What am I All My Children?!” she quipped.

Husband Russell Brand also issued a joking denial of a split during a taping for Friday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“I am really happily married,” he says, adding it’s difficult to avoid Internet rumors “because a lot of the nude women Web sites I quite enjoy.”

On Wednesday night, Perry helped announce the Grammy nominations at a live concert in Los Angeles, where she sported her wedding ring. (Perry also snagged two nominations herself.)

Perry, 27, and Brand, 36, were married in October 2010 in a lavish ceremony – that included two elephants as well as acrobats and jugglers – at a luxury resort in northern India.

Since then, they’ve had nothing but fawning words for one another in interviews, with Perry calling Brand her great man of God, and he gushing about his spiritual and emotional connection to his bride.
