Russell Brand is opening up from his split from Katy Perry after 14 months of marriage — and he’s got a surprisingly positive outlook on the whole divorce.
“I still love her as a human being,” Brand tells Ellen DeGeneres in a new interview airing today. “Sometimes when you’re in a relationship I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything. I was very happy to be married with her. She’ s such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her.” Click here to watch the interview!
“I just sort of lost my head for awhile. I did some dumb interviews and it woke me up. … It was a very strange time. It sort of, like, rocketed me into adulthood. It was a violent crash into being an adult. So for a couple years, it was all figuring it all out. I’m glad I stayed out of the spotlight. I think back then I would have said ‘Give me two weeks! Let me get out! Let me go on ‘Ellen’ and explain myself!’ And it was, like, ‘No, idiot, go away. Be 33 and 34 instead of 28 for the fourth year.’”
– John Mayer is responding, of course, to his 2010 interview with Playboy magazine in which he got really overshare-y about his ex-girlfriend, Jessica Simpson. He called Jess “sexual napalm,” said she was like “crack cocaine” to him in bed, and said of her “If you charged me $10,000 to f**k you, I would start selling all my s**t just to keep f**king you.” (He later apologized to her in writing, but Jessica said she has not and doesn’t ever plan to accept his apology.) And then there was the time John got blabby with paparazzi about his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston, which got him in big trubs with her. Keep reading »

As anybody who reads The Frisky knows, there’s been a 500 percent increase in sloth coverage since I’ve been hired. That’s because I’m obsessed with them, and hope that one day I will be able to hang out with them, cuddle them and love them. Kristen Bell is obsessed with them, too. And her boyfriend Dax Shepard surprised her this year with a visit from one on her birthday — with unintended results. [Ellen]
Remember Lindsay Lohan’s plans to debut her Playboy issue on Ellen? Well, there will be no such interview. Following her very eventful Hawaiian vacation, Lindsay failed to hop her early flight back to L.A. yesterday for the taping. So much for that.
The consolation prize, for those that were hyped to hear what Lindsay had to say? Paris Jackson, daughter of Michael, appeared on Ellen in Lohan’s place. The episode, which airs on Thursday, will mark the 13-year-old’s first ever solo interview. Judging by the video preview, which you can watch on Radar Online, Paris seems surprisingly normal and well-adjusted despite her upbringing and the controversy surrounding her father. I, for one, am glad Lindsay bailed — this interview with Paris is bound to be more interesting, and what could Lindsay possibly have to say that we haven’t heard from her before? Trainwrecks are tedious when they only play one note.
