Katy Perry recruits Ellie Goulding as Jessie J replacement

Jessie J has pulled out as the support act on Katy Perry's tour, to be replaced by fellow British singer Ellie Goulding.

The Price Tag hitmaker was to open a handful of dates on the North American leg of Perry's California Dreams tour, but she has had to bow out of the trek as her broken foot heals.

She announced the news on her Twitter.com page on Monday (19Sep11), writing, "Having a cry about having to pull out of the Katy Perry tour. I am as upset as my heartbeats (fans), believe me. My foot is just not healing as well as I hoped."

But the show must go on for Perry, who 'Tweeted', "Please welcome Ellie Goulding to the California Dreams Tour this November! Jessie J, hope you feel better soon!"
