Katy Perry may have split from Russell Brand over three and a half years ago, but their split still seems to be big news.

The singer took to Twitter just now to hit back at Sydney's Daily Telegraph newspaper for re-printing quotes from an interview she did with one of their journalists three years ago, leading readers to believe it was a new interview.

The quotes, which are mainly to do with Russell, were picked up by a number of media outlets over the weekend and include the line, "He [Russell] hasn't spoken to me since he texted me saying he was filing for divorce."

Now Katy has called out the journalist in question to her 70m followers, saying his conduct was "inappropriate."

This is not the first time Katy has hit back at the Australian media. Last November she took to Twitter to complain about invasive practises by paparazzi Down Under.

Posting a picture of a typed open letter, Katy wrote, "Australian PRESS: You should be ashamed of your paparazzi and tabloid culture… I was stalked by many grown men today as I tried to take a quiet walk to the beach. These men would not stop as I pleaded over & over to let me have my space."

She even followed it up with images of a number of the photographers and the caption, "THESE ARE A FEW OF THE STALKERS."

We definitely won't be getting ourselves on Katy Perry's bad side, that's for sure.



Russell Brand is not known for holding back when it comes to either his unique brand of comedy, or sharing his opinion.

However, the consensus is that he may have overstepped the mark with a less than tasteful joke during last night’s Comic Relief programme.

The 39-year-old came in for major criticism after making an awkward joke about syringes.

“I’m in the unfortunate position of having to ask you to donate money to buy syringes, literally the exact opposite of how I spend most of my time, and the previous two decades of my life,” he said.

With co-presenter Claudia Winkleman cringing beside him, he added: “Fighting every instinct of my being. Don’t make ‘em not work again, that’s terrible. I’ll share. Sharing is caring. Although do watch out for infectious blood diseases.”

Needless to say, Twitter users were horrified by his choice of ‘joke’, with one commenting: “Wow. People suffering from HIV and Russell Brand makes jokes about syringes and ‘banging up’?”

Meanwhile, another summed up the general feeling on social media, writing: “The awkward moment Russell Brand starts joking about how awful it is they’ve made non-reusable syringes on comic relief #GetOffTheTV”.

We're cringing very hard for him today.



It has been three years since Katy Perry and Russell Brand called an end to their two-year marriage and while things were tense between them, it seems the two have come full circle.

Katy and Russell’s relationship breakdown was more or less documented in Katy’s movie, Part Of Me, which saw the star reduced to tears moments before showtime as she realised her marriage wasn’t working.

Since then, however, it would appear the pair are on civil terms as Russell tweeted about his ex-wife’s Super Bowl halftime show last night: “Super Bowl may be baffling to Brits but half time show will be amazing. Good luck KP.”

Aww, how sweet – we’re sure Katy will appreciate her ex-husband’s kind words. And he was right: she was amazing! 



The ever-controversial actor and comedian, Russell Brand, has been in the headlines a lot lately. If he’s not claiming to have no idea who his ex-wife Katy Perry is, he’s going off on one with an Irish reporter who asked a bit too much and now he may be booted off Twitter!

The Get Him To The Greek star has come under fire for tweeting a Daily Mail reporter’s phone number this week after it had been claimed the reporter was hassling Russell’s mum, Barbara.

This might not have been the best idea Russell’s ever had, although some might claim his phone call to Andrew Sachs was even worse, because Twitter may be forced to ban the comedian for violating their privacy policies.

Upon seeing Russell's tweet, one follower said: "What a horrible thing for @rustyrockets to do. Expected better, if I’m honest."

Russell quickly admitted to his poor judgement after further public backlash and tweeted: “That was a bit nuts. He put it thru me door with ‘please call’ on it. They’re bothering me mum. Deleted it. I’m human.”

Unsurprisingly however, Russell is less than fazed by the speculation that he may no longer be part of the Twittersphere and even retweeted an article The Guardian covered on the matter.

Oh, the irony!


An Irish reporter has found himself on Russell Brand’s hate list after questioning him about how much he is paying for rent.

The reporter, who works for Channel 4, posed Russell the question: “How much did you pay for your place?” Russell goes on to inform him that he is renting.

Not letting Russell play the question down, he then asks him what he is paying in rent. Russell then begins to look increasingly uncomfortable, before going on to lose his temper and call the reporter a 'snide'.

Did the reporter have a point or did he cross a line by asking him about his home?

UPDATE: Russell has since released a YouTube video explaining his reaction to the journalist in the above video. Admitting his overreaction to the incident, he goes on to explain why he felt the question about his rent was irrelevant to the topic in question. 




Russell Brand and ex-wife Katy Perry began dating in September 2009, got engaged a mere three months later on New Years Eve and married in India the following year, but it seems Russell has suffered severe amnesia and has absolutely no idea who Katy is anymore.

In a bid to educate himself on American holiday Thanksgiving, Russell chatted with kids in the States who kindly agreed to school the actor and comedian on their favourite national holiday, but things got kind of awkward kind of quickly.

When Russell asked one school child who she would invite to Thanksgiving dinner, the answer she gave seemed to leave the 39-year-old just a little rattled.

When the little girl responded with a shy ‘Katy Perry’, the normally quick-witted star appeared momentarily stunned before quickly mumbling “Katy Perry? I don’t know who that is." Surely, he could have come up with something a bit better than that?

When another young girl said she’d invite Ariana Grande, Russell insisted he knew exactly who she was, only making his slight against Katy all the more obvious.

Surely, Russell could have gotten into the holiday spirit and said something nice about Katy to her young fans, no?




Katy Perry has opened up about the pain she went through following the breakdown of her marriage to Russell Brand in 2012.

The singer was speaking to an Australian outlet when she described how her depression following the split is chronicled through her music: “Sometimes you can be blinded by your extreme emotions. I definitely was looking for answers, and during that time I wrote that song, and I was depressed and it was sad.”

Katy said she decided to share her experiences in her songs to let other people suffering with depression that they’re not alone: “I wanted to share that side of my story because I know there are so many other people out there that have gone through things like that, and you always feel like you’re the only one going though it.”

We're so glad Katy is feeling better!

If it were us, we would be seriously mad over this.

Comedian Russell Brand may have recently split from his heiress girlfriend Jemima Khan, but it looks like he isn’t too bothered by the break-up!

In an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, Russell appeared to have a little dig at his ex-girlfriend, admitting that the worst part about the split was not being able to see her dog, Brian.


Referring to Jemima’s white Alsatian, the 39-year-old said: “I loved that dog. But what can you do?”

“Life is hard, isn’t it? You just jog on. You focus and think, ‘Well, I have lost that dog, we just have to overthrow the government.’”

Indeed, that’s exactly what goes through our minds at the end of a break-up. Not.

Russell and Jemima dated for the year, with reports of their break-up surfacing last month.

We bet Jemima will be pretty mad when she gets wind of Russell’s comments!




It has been reported that Russell Brand and Jemima Khan’s relationship has come to an end.

The comedian is believed to have been dating the journalist since September of last year when he spoke about a relationship in an article for The Guardian.

Russell told Jonathon Ross earlier this year that his relationship with Jemima was incredible and even brought Jemima’s dog Brian on stage with him – cute!

However, it is now reported by the Daily Mail that the relationship has “run its course.”

Russell was previously married to Katy Perry but filed for divorce in December of 2011.

Katy Perry has dated her fair share of famous men from John Mayer to Russell Brand.

But Perry has now admitted in a new interview with Rolling Stone, that she has also dated non-famous men.

"I've done that before. It's not that they have to be famous, although there's a level of understanding when they're in the same business, you know?"

Katy says when it comes to relationships, she feels it’s better to date men who are in the same industry as her.

"They understand what it means when you're tired from a show or the tour's exhausting you or if an interview went wrong—they know all the ins and outs, so you can just walk in to the house with a certain face and they understand, you know? Rather than, like, having to explain everything and that takes two, three hours."

Katy also opened up about her divorce from Brand and the lessons she’s learnt from it.

"Now I know—first and foremost, self-love, and then give love away. Back then it was mostly just me giving love away with no self-love. I went through my ‘return of Saturn,' is what they call it." 


The Rubberbandits are back with their new song FELLAS (featuring Gabriel Byrne).

Well, it’s not REALLY featuring Gabriel Byrne – they have a puppet of him singing the song, which talks about how “if you wanna f*** a fella” it’s perfectly fine.

It’s a catchy tune with a good message – even if they do slightly overuse the F word! Russell Brand took to Twitter to praise the guys: “Always listen to @rubberbandits one day their prophecies may free us all.”

Frankie Boyle is also a fan of the song, calling it “immense” and Panti-Bliss tweeted: “Ha! Amazing. @Rubberbandits new song/video about fellas "f***ing fellas" as sung by puppet Gabriel Byrne. Seriously.”
