Katy Perry Has Some Breakup Advice For You & It Involves Flamin’ Hot Cheetos

2013 American Music Awards - Arrivals

They say experience is the greatest teacher, and Katy Perry has sure had a lot of it so far. As Marie Claire‘s January cover girl, Katy shared the wealth of lessons she learned through her highly public divorce from Russell Brand. When she was asked for a divorce via text message (did anyone else watch the marriage’s collapse on her documentary “Part of Me” and have a good cry?), she was thrown a major curveball and had no choice but to learn how to keep going. What did she discover?

“There were two weeks of my life after I found out the truth of my marriage where I was like, ‘Okay. Alright. I can’t feel this. This is too intense right now.’ I was, like, just eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and drinking, and that’s it…

There are two ways you can go: You can either nurture yourself or go destructive. I have gone down the destructive path before, and that didn’t work for me. You dig deep beyond those scars and find that soft tissue again, and you massage and nurture it and bring it to life, little by little, through serving yourself well. I did it through hikes and vitamins and therapy and prayer and good friends.”

Girl is brave. Keep reading »

Russell Brand Calls Out German Fashion House For Nazi Ties While Accepting Award

What do I like about Russell Brand? That’s a very good question. I don’t know what it is that I like about Russell Brand, except to say that I find him weirdly compelling and, yes, kind of hot, which is also weird. But I am definitely both amused by and impressed with the tenacity of the comments he made while receiving the Oracle Award (I guess he can also see the future?) at the British GQ Men of the Year awards. The ceremony just so happened to be sponsored by German luxury label Hugo Boss, the founder of which just so happened to have dressed the Nazis. Not a Nazi, or a couple of Nazis, or even just Hitler himself — the whole damn lot of them! It isn’t exactly a secret, given that the brand acknowledged the Nazi link in the New York Times several years ago after the company became aware of a “dormant account” in Switzerland in Boss’s name, over half a century since his death in 1948. So, you know, it’s on Wikipedia and all, but that didn’t stop Brand from taking matters into his own hands by calling out the fashion house right up on their own stage. This is what he had to say:

“Any of you who know a little bit about history and fashion will know that Hugo Boss made the uniforms for the Nazis. The Nazis did have flaws, but, you know, they did look fucking fantastic, let’s face it, while they were killing people on the basis of their religion and sexuality.”

Was the award-winner ejected from the after party in light of his comments? Yes. But was it worth it? Oh, yes, I would certainly think so. [The Gloss]

  • Katy Perry, in the new issue of Vogue, on her divorce from Russell Brand: “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me.” She also said Brand “didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour,” calling it “very controlling.” She said there is a “real truth” to why their relationship ended (um, cheating?), but she won’t disclose what it is. Oh dear, drama! [US Weekly]
  • Jon Gosselin ruined Ed Hardy’s tattoo-style clothing brand. Ruined it, I tell you! “That Jon Gosselin thing was the nail in the coffin,” Hardy said. “That’s what tanked it. Macy’s used to have a huge window display with Ed Hardy, and it filtered down and that’s why Macy’s dropped the brand.” Celebrities like Madonna used to wear Ed Hardy designs, but then Gosselin started wearing it and then the “Jersey Shore” douches and then … well … the rest is Douche History.

Russell Brand’s Marriage To Katy Perry Failed Because Of The Whole “Monogamy” Thing

Russell Brand spent 99 percent of his famous life as a notorious womanizer, but all bets were off when he met and fell in love with Katy Perry. Suddenly, the monogamous married life seemed as if it was calling his name and he exchanged some vows… only to get divorced a little over a year later. There’s been lots of talk about exactly what went wrong there, as Russell and Katy were just crazy enough of a couple to work. Turns out, a lot of the problem was just that Russell really, really likes having sex with the myriad of “options” in front of him. Oh, brother. Read more on Evil Beet Gossip…
