Russell Brand, the former husband of famous singer Katy Perry is releasing his new documentary Brand: The Second Coming. In this movie, Brand actually mocks his ex-wife and revealed the reason why their marriage ended.
So, Katy Perry and Russell Brand were married between 2010 and 2012. A report by Grazia magazine indicated that the actor jokes in the movie about his ex-wife’s accent and also “portrays her as a bimbo.” One of the actors’ friends revealed that Brand knew that his marriage to the singer would not last.
Apparently, things stopped working out between the two after they visited Africa. Brand revealed that he just did not like being an A-list celebrity, thing that his marriage to Katy meant. “I’m associated with the very thing that I detest: vapid, vacuous, plastic, constructed, mindless celebrity,” he revealed. “That’s the very sea we’re swimming in … ‘Oh, who’s he? He’s married to Katy Perry.'”
Well, as expected Katy had not received well the comments made by her ex-husband and his documentary. According to some insiders, this has actually been quite painful for the famous singer. “It hurts like hell for Katy to re-live her painful marriage like this,” a source said. “She feels vulnerable and embarrassed,” it added.
Furthermore, the timing is said to be quite bad for the star. “The documentary couldn’t have come at a worse time. She’s in a crossroads career-wise and doesn’t feel she deserve this,” the insider explained. In fact, it seems that this is just a bad moment for Katy. The singer was also criticized in a New York Magazine article, which compared her to Taylor Swift and Beyonce.
Of course, Katy did not like the comparison to Taylor, with whom she is in a feud. The exact reason why the two singers are fighting is not completely known. Some claim that it is linked to the fact that Katy dated John Mayer, after he ended his relationship with Taylor. Well, the article gave Taylor Swift as a good example of a musician who is supporting feminism and is setting a desirable model, while Katy was placed on the other side, her music being criticized.
