Are you there God?! It's me, Penny.

You need to do something! My girl, Katy Perry....
is engaged to......THIS!
Russell Brand-The British "comic" whose arsenal of sub par jokes is second in lameness only to his "I just stuck my finger in a live wall socket" hair do. I think he looks like a Daddy Long Legs Spider. The 34-year-old comedian reportedly proposed during a spiritual ceremony in India on New Year's Eve, and the relationship was blessed by a "love guru".
NO!!!!!! He's ALL wrong!! Click HERE if you want to read my first rant on this toxic man/spider!
They've only been dating for like- 4 months... Here's a time line video of their "relationship".
If the wedding actually happens, I will support my fav singer's choice-and I will TRY to find good things about him...tho it will probably be difficult. I promise not to go suffocate him with a pillow like many would expect...but keep some bail money on hand, and make sure to answer your phone no matter what hour of night in case I snap. :)
I really dislike this guy- I don't think he's funny-or interesting. Most of the stand up routines I've seen of his rely on being crass more than truly funny. I don't mind cussing, but it's stupid if the joke doesn't need it.(FYI: I feel this way with writing too-I'm so over reading some 16 year old main character dropping F-bombs like it's Hiroshima. It's like, "Your character ISN'T a gang member-WHY are they talking like one?!" For SERIOUSLY!)
Back on track tho- As much as it pains me, I DO have to admit-Katy and Russell look pretty cute in these pics.
In the February Glamour Magazine issue, Perry, whose parents were preachers before she became a pop star, explained why she fell in love with Brand, who at one time admitted to being a sex addict, and noted that she may have found her match in the once-wild funnyman.

"A vocabulary! He could slay anybody with the things that he says. He doesn't even need his fists," she said of her favorite Brand qualities, adding, "When I find a partner who is my teammate. I'm not going to play by any rules, I'm just going to go with my heart. Why wait? I just wrote a song [that goes], 'They say it's hard to meet your match/ Gotta find my other half so we can make a perfect shape.' "

Katy will always be awesome to me-no matter how long she has that tape worm of a man stalking her! Here are a couple of other questions Glamour asked her that really show WHY she's one of the artists I love most! She exemplifies the saying, Never Give Up! Never Surrender!!

GLAMOUR: When you moved to L.A.(when she first started out in music outside of the Christian music industry) Was it a rough time?

KP: I had two cars repossessed, tons of debt. I had a horrible job [critiquing music demos] that was damaging to my soul. After being on three different labels and knowing everyone and hearing yeses and nos and “You’re it!” or “You’re s—t!” I was depressed. But I never took no for an answer and really believed in myself.

GLAMOUR: Where does that determination come from?

KP: Maybe I’m competitive. I just feel like I have this gift that I’ve been given. It’s like, “Someone unwrap it! Here it is!” That drive can’t be held down. I have a lot of ambition.

Read the whole interview with Katy here.

Does anyone else dislike Brand like me?! My BFF, Kaylynn, says he's funny and I'm judging him too harshly...but I dunno...I had never really heard of him before he started dating her, and even now I don't care to listen to him speak.

OH! and come by tomorrow cuz I got a couple of surprises yesterday that I'm PRETTY excited about, and I'm gonna take some pics to show ya'll! :)

I was waiting for this post!

I don't mind Russel that much, honestly. I think he's quite funny as an actor. I haven't really seen the stand-up, but I do like what Katy's saying about a Vocabulary. I find nothing sexier.

Be strong, trust Katy, and remember it's Hollywood so ANYTHING can happen.

When I read this yesterday I immediately thought of you--I hope his persona onstage is less like his real personality and that they live happy ever after. I didn't mind him so much in the Adam Sandler Movie...Bedtime Stories I think it was...but yeah, he strikes me as skeevy.

I don't like him, I don't think he's funny at all.

My husband thinks he's hilarious.

So who knows if you're being too harsh.

Wha?! I had no idea they were engaged! I wish them all the best though I personally do not find Russell funny either.
Katy looks great on the cover, as always.
