Russell Brand made some funny and self-aware jokes about his failed marriage to Katy Perry on his radio show. He’s done this before, but it’s pretty direct here, and I think it’s done without being disrespectful to Ms. Perry. Also his show raised money for the Teen Cancer trust, so there’s that upside. His co-hosts Noel Gallagher, Matt Morgan, and Trevor Lock started it, by revealing on air that they all made bets on how long Mr. Brand’s marriage would last. EOnline has the details.
“Don’t cackle; I tried my hardest,” the actor said after Matt mocked Brand’s entrance to thelavish Indian wedding on an elephant. “How come you know exactly how long my marriage was—was you timing it?”
“For the record, in the sweepstake I came the closest,” Gallagher replied, ‘fessing up to the bet.
To which Russell provides a quick comeback:
“Let me tell you a thing about marriage. Marriage is a bond that can last up to 14 months…This is a sacred, 14-month arrangement. Begins on an elephant. Ends in a newspaper.“
There’s something very Hunter S. Thompson about that statement.
P.S. I had to include that photo of David Lynch with Katy Perry and Russell Brand. Because, wtf. In the best possible way.
