There’s something you need to know before we go any further: Katy Perry is my girl and I won’t have a bad word said against her. I mean, obviously you can say whatever you want about her because we’re all adults here and there’s such a thing as free speech and some people don’t like pop stars, even ironically, but I won’t hear it. It’ll go in one ear and out the other because I think she’s great, okay? I mean, have you actually listened to Teenage Dream? Have you seen Part of Me 3D? Have you looked at her? She’s flawless and I rest my case.
Anyway, this entry is about Katy, but only insomuch as what her ex-husband and human yoga mat Russell Brand had to say about her in a recent interview on The Howard Stern Show. After calling Katy’s current man friend John Mayer (feel free to talk shit about that, cos he’s a moron of the highest proportions) a “womanizer” – pot, meet kettle! – Russell stood up for Katy and said he wouldn’t talk bad about her just to generate a story. A true gentleman if ever there was one!
“You have to let go of the instinct to protect someone once you divorce them,” Brand explained, later telling the radio host, “So help me God, Howard Stern, I will not compromise my ex-wife’s vagina for the sake of ratings! That woman was perfect from top to bottom.” (via The Huffington Post)
Well, yeah, but at the same time, let’s let go of the whole “Katy needs protection but I can’t supply it” martyrdom, shall we? In any case, it seems like Russell is on a campaign of decency lately. First he takes Demi Moore for a meditation retreat in India, then he refuses to bad-mouth his ex-wife… what will he come up with next?
