Who knew the British funny man had a sensitive side?
We were skeptical at first, but it looks like Katy Perry, 25, and Russell Brand, 34, really do have a fairy tale romance going on — and Katy says that Russell’s loving ways have even inspired to write songs about him! “He’s the most romantic man I’ve ever been in contact with — ever!” Katy told MSN’s Wonderwall on Jan. 16 at The Art of Elysium Charity Black Tie Gala in Beverly Hills. “I didn’t think anyone could ever live up to that.”
Katy and Russell are so head-over-heels for each other now, it’s hard to imagine them apart. But Katy remembers the moment they met like it was yesterday. “I threw an empty water bottle at his head across Radio City Music Hall at the VMAs and it hit him straight in the head,” Katy recalls. “And from then on it’s always been like ‘Oh God…’ [Laughs] So thanks, empty water bottle.”
Unfortunately Katy didn’t drop any hints about a date for her and Russell’s wedding — the couple got engaged in India over the holidays — but she did share the secret to their rock-solid relationship: laughter! ”Humor is a very big part of our lives, and when things get difficult, we just have a laugh.”
Thanks, Katy! We’ll take note.
