Russell Brand is a Bridezilla, obsessed with Bride magazines

Russell Brand And Katy Perry Take Off At LAX!

Is it shocking that Russell Brand and Katy Perry are still going strong? It shocks me. I really expected Russell to already be on his fiftieth hooker of the new year by now. Anyway, they got engaged back in January during a little holiday in India. They had only been dating for a few months, and they immediately had to weather a pregnancy rumor storm – which Katy quickly nipped in the bud by announcing on Twitter that she had her period (“That’s right I’m BLEEDING”). And now Katy tells MTV (via Us Weekly) that she and Russell are still going strong, and that he’s the one planning their wedding. Apparently, Russell is something of a Bridezilla:

How are wedding plans going to for Katy Perry?

“Well, I have to plan my [new album, due this summer] first and then I’m going to get to my wedding,” the singer, 25, tells MTV News. “But I’m really excited about that, too.

Her fiance Russell Brand has been “a total bridezilla,” she says. “He’s like a freak, man. You should see — he’s always, like, buying bride magazines. Every time we go out for breakfast he’s like, ‘Can we just stop and get a bride magazine?'”

Perry recently told they might just wind up eloping. “We just want it to mean something,” she said when asked about the kind of ceremony she wants. “It doesn’t matter if it’s just me and him or if it’s a big, fat ordeal.”

At the moment, Perry said she just enjoys being engaged. Asked how it’s going so far, she told Us, “Fabulous! Better than I would imagine engagements typically do!”

Okay, the idea of Russell reading bride magazines is hysterical to me. It’s the guy you’d least suspect, isn’t it? The ones you assume are going to sensitive and wonderful turn out to be douches, and the dudes who have spent the better part of a decade engaged in a neverending orgy are the ones who really care about the flower arrangements. I really love Katy’s sentiments too – I think I’m one of those women lacking “the bride gene,” to quote that Sex and the City episode. I don’t really give a crap about white dresses and flower arrangements and having a big ceremony. I really think that if I ever marry, I’ll probably elope just to avoid the drama. With my luck, though, I’ll end up with a Bridezilla groom who wants to stage the whole thing like a Las Vegas show (yes, I’ll probably end up marrying a gay dude).

    I love Russell! He comes across so charming in interviews and I thought he was great in Forgetting Sarah Marshell and Bedtime Stories. he could comb his hair a little more, and I think he could do WAY WAY WAY better than Katie.!!!

    They are both disgusting.

  3. scotchy says:

    ahh no not another katy perry record.
    damn it.

  4. Icecat says:

    I think their perfect for each other,and seem totally smitten. I wish them well.

  5. krissy_kitty says:

    Is he seriously holding something in front of his crotch that says “obey” on it?!
    Totally yucky, yet totally Russell Brand..

  6. Rianna says:

    I am the same. I lack the bride gene so I have vowed to let my Mother organise everything. Lol!
    I think that if Russell wants to organise it and Katy is fine with it… they should go for it, they seem to have a perfectly quirky happy relationship.
    Still is weird that Russell is engaged though…

    Russell is about as sexy as Ayatollah Khomeini, and even less funny. Anyone seeing “charm” in this sasquatch obviously hasn’t met any decent British people. Having nothing going for you but a precocious accent doesn’t make you entertaining.

  8. ams says:

    ugh who let her put out that first album?!?! i kissed a girl was already a song, thank u jill sobule!

    I actually think the “obey” thing is pretty funny, like he just can’t help but mess around for the cameras.

    When I heard RB’s interviews for his recent book, he sounded like when he’s not in stage mode, then he’s quite thoughtful and private.

    So why wouldn’t he want something that’s really personal for him to be a lovely, beautiful moment? He probably knows that he’ll do a ton of totally stupid things when he’s in public but if he can have some sweetness alone with the lady he wants to be with, then I’d say that’s it’s great. Probably better if they have a private ceremony and then act like idiots in public after it’s all said and done. 🙂

    And I was another one who did the courthouse with a bare minimum of people to avoid planning a big hullabaloo.

    Am I the only one whos skin crawls when I look at him,then feels like they need a flea dip?

    I always thought I lacked the bride gene. Dreaded the wedding, wanted to elope. I am now planning my wedding (because my fiance insisted we have one) and it is so much fun! I can’t explain it, one day the bride switch in me flipped. I am still shocked about it.

    Your bride genes may be hiding.

  13. IriD says:

    The “Obey” thing is part of an “experiment in phenomenology” from artist Shepard Fairey; it’s been going on since 1989 or ’90. Here’s some of what it’s all about:
    “The OBEY sticker attempts to stimulate curiosity and bring people to question both the sticker and their relationship with their surroundings.”

    It’s not just Russell Brand being an ass, and it makes me like him a bit more.

    I will be shocked if these two make it down the isle. I think they burn hot, but will fizzle fast.

  15. Lucy says:

    all this is so completely staged up.

    He is gaining press and getting more reckoned in US; she fills like talentless people usually do gossip magazines with her face (boobs actually) up so people don’t have way to forget her laugheable singing presence (LOL) in between two records.

    These two are two walking STD.

    But even if that would match them together, they actually all play on the side.

    People really need an injection of realism.

    It’s just a plain and typically fake Hollyweird PR pair up.

    Check a bit who Greg Wells is.

    Then when in some months it will appear which way Miss Perry uses to obtain producers working with her… don’t be too surpised.

    They both disgust me.

    And they are ugly, inside and out.

  16. krissy_kitty says:

    @IriD, thanks for the info! Now I want to go out and get one.. ;o)

  17. cara says:

    I read a bio on Russell,he is really messed up.Addicted to everything you possibly be addicted to.
    I do like her singing but I don’t like her skanky act

  18. Emily says:

    She’s planning a new album? How much planning can possibly go into mindlessly attempting to sing other people’s songs? Must remember not to go to any clubs in the month after her singles come out.

  19. Amy says:

    I wonder what he looks like without that mop of hair and clean shaven? I really think he might be decent looking if he stopped hiding behind his hairiness.

    so fashion and romantic
