Sigh. Russell Brand appears to be vying for Katy Perry’s forgiveness for some reason.
That’s right: Before there was Orlando Bloom and John Mayer, Perry, 32, was wed to Brand, 41, for 14 blissful months. Until, of course, the British comedian texted the pop star to let her know he was divorcing her in 2011. Rude!
In an interview for the W Channel’s John Bishop: In Conversation, he noted that it was difficult to safeguard the relationship from external influences: “Obviously the marriage didn’t last for a very long time, and I think that is to do with the undulated nature of fame and that living in those conditions and what was happening,” Brand said.
But Brand feels totally okay about it now. “I still feel very warm towards her. I feel like, when I hear about her or see her, ‘Aw, there’s that person. There’s that person in the world.’” He had previously noted that Perry was the kind of person he hated in his 2015 documentary, “Brand: A Second Coming,” saying that “I’m associated with the very thing I detest: vapid, vacuous, plastic, constructed, mindless celebrity.” Okay, my dude.

So it looks like the “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” actor might be attempting to turn over a new leaf, now that he has a new girlfriend and a baby. But methinks if any of this was genuine, he wouldn’t be using his celebrity on a public forum to talk about how he’s softened on Perry. If he really meant it, he would call her up, or send her a nice letter — or at the very least, hop in her DMs on Instagram. But he didn’t. Because after all, Brand is everything he hates: vapid, vacuous and mindless and frankly? He doesn’t have anything else interesting to talk about.
