We hate to say it, but this sounds less than promising, Katy. Russell is going to say ‘I do’…until something else demands his attention, that is

Russell Brand is like a baby. No, he doesn’t have to be spoon-fed or have his diapers changed, but he is distracted by shiny new objects…which doesn’t bode well for his fiancee, pop starlet Katy Perry.

An insider tells HollywoodLife.com that Russell, 34, was shooting a documentary – a follow-up to his 2007 film On the Road – until he started seriously dating Katy, 25, in mid-fall.

“Russell has the shortest attention span on the planet,” snipes our insider. “He literally can’t divide his attention between two things at once. When he decided to really give a relationship with Katy a shot, he put the documentary on hold. He said ‘I think I’m going to try giving monogamy a shot’ for once.”

So your impending nuptials are a ‘test-drive’ at marriage then, Russ? We’re sure Katy would be pleased to hear that!

We can’t say we’re surprised — after meeting at the VMA’s in New York last September, the two had a whirlwind three-month courtship that included trips to his native England as well as India and ended with a marriage proposal over New Year’s.

Our insider agrees that the situation isn’t – well – ideal. “It’s probably not going to last. He gets too distracted. He’s so focused on one thing at a time, and when something new comes along his attention gets totally diverted. He’s focused on Katy – for now. But how long will that last?”

We couldn’t have said it better. Watch out, Ms. Perry. In the life of a child, shiny new toys get old real fast.
