Katy Perry likes kissing girls. But, as it appears, Katy Perry clearly didn’t like kissing girls enough, as she is now engaged to Russell Brand, noted Lothario. They’ve been dating for four months, were engaged over a recent vacation to India, and I am going to enjoy whatever stand-up special will follow if they have a lengthy, messy divorce.
For you yanks that aren’t in the know, Russell Brand is the latest UK import in the comedy scene. Lately, the UK comics have been leaning more and more towards looking like rock stars and farther and farther away from good material, which is precisely where Russell Brand lies.
Katy Perry is the US songstress pastor’s daughter whose album, One Of The Boys, contained every teen-baiting cliché you could shake a stick at. Including text-speak in song titles, like “Ur So Gay.” Also, lots of attention whorey songs like, uh, “Ur So Gay.” Basically, anything Katy Perry did, despite charting, is a desperate grab at a teen audience. So between him and her, I think they make a perfect couple. Here’s looking forward to Russell Brand rambling about marriage for 20 minutes in snakeskin boots.
So far, 2010 is turning out pretty ridiculous. Let’s keep that trend going. I want this next decade to be the most ridiculous decade possible, to follow up the worst.
