Russell Brand's Katy Perry jokes addressed the time the celebrity couple was married for a little over a year, but painted the singer in a negative light. The comedian made crass jokes about sex with his ex-wife during a stand-up show in London last Wednesday.
Russell Brand's Katy Perry slam came while he was warming up for his Messiah Complex tour at the Soho Theater. The 38-year-old said that marriage and being a monk aren't that different when it comes to being intimate- at least when married to Perry.
"When I got divorced, I considered becoming a monk. When you're a monk, you're not allowed to have sex with anyone. When you're married, it's one person. That's one more than a monk. It's not that different," the funnyman was quoted by PressParty.com as saying.
He also said that his intimate time with his then-wife was rather uninteresting. Instead, he said he would fantasize about other women he could be with.
"I'd be having sex thinking, 'Think of anyone, anyone else,'" Brand joked.
Throughout the marriage, which ended Dec. 28, 2011, there weren't many instances that the two entertainers were on the rocks. Perry revealed previously, though, that Brand's comedy became a source of contention when she caught him making jokes about her.
"[He was] a magical man. He's a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him," Perry told reporters previously. [He was] hysterical [funny] in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me and he didn't know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows."
Though Brand decided to notify Perry that he wanted to divorce via text message, he generally hasn't spoken ill of her.
"That woman was perfect from top to bottom," he told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show.
