The Word: Russell Brand just can’t tell a lie

Katy Perry was reportedly blindsided by Russell Brand’s divorce filing, but according to sources close to the singer there was plenty of evidence he was losing interest, says Us Weekly. “There were so many times when he wasn’t there,” a source says, offering the last night of Perry’s tour in November as an example: “He was totally uninterested and seemed annoyed he was there. I don’t think he sat through one song.” And then there was Brand’s response to her “Saturday Night Live” hosting stint in December. Perry reportedly begged Brand to appear in a skit on the episode, but he declined and stayed in L.A. instead. And after it aired? “He told her that she wasn’t that funny,” the source says. “That really hurt.”

But, um, he was right? It’s hard to sit through a Katy Perry concert and she was Nancy Kerrigan-esque terrible on “SNL.” Now, if only she would hit him with a taste of his own medicine and tell him to buy a bigger pair of pants.

Demi Moore is super self-reflective

Demi Moore admits that her split from Ashton Kutcher has left her shaken and insecure. “What scares me is that I’m going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I’m really not lovable, that I’m not worthy of being loved,” she tells Harper’s Bazaar in a candid interview, adding that she fears finding out “that there’s something fundamentally wrong with me and that I wasn’t wanted here in the first place.” But Moore is moving forward, thanks to some profound advice. “Somebody wrote something to me that said, ‘Don’t let your wounds make you become someone you’re not.’ That’s really powerful. And not taking life too seriously,” she says.

Forget acting, can Demi write a self-help book? She is the new Oprah!
