Katy Perry and Russell Brand were married in India on October 23, 2010. Katy Perry, popular singer of the smash summer hit California Gurls, and Russell Brand, British comedian and actor, were engaged in India and returned to India to get married. The couple were married in a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony.
Katy Perry, born Katherine Elizabeth Hudson, grew up listening to only gospel music with her parents, both Christian pastors. The first album Katy recorded, although never released, was gospel music. Given her background, her first two song releases Ur So Gay and I Kissed a Girl were quite a departure from her upbringing. I Kissed a Girl became a hit and Katy Perry became a star. She has since released another popular album, Teenage Dream. Katy Perry’s clothing choices and eccentric hair styles also garner quite a bit of attention and contribute to her presence in the media and tabloids.
Russell Brand had a turbulent childhood with his mother being diagnosed with multiple forms of cancer and only sporadically seeing his father. During his adolescence, he developed an eating disorder and also experimented with many types of drugs. Russell Brand is a comedian, host, and actor. He has appeared in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek. Russell Brand’s personal life has been widely reported on, but his extreme behavior has been greatly reduced since engaging in a relationship with Katy Perry.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand met at the 2008 Video Music Awards on MTV. Katy Perry did a cameo filming for Russell Brand’s movie Get Him to the Greek. The pair did not begin dating right away as Katy Perry was involved with someone else, but they reunited at the VMAs the following year. After the 2009 Award show, the pair began their relationship. The relationship got serious fast. Katy Perry and Russell Brand were engaged in India before New Years 2010.
Although Katy Perry and Russell Brand may seem an odd pair, the duo seems to be working. Russell Brand, before uniting with Katy Perry, was a sex and drug addict, but has changed his ways for their relationship. Katy Perry has described both herself and Russell Brand in an interview with Esquire as “kind of cartoony, larger than life” which may be their common ground and what makes their relationship work. The married couple appear completely enamored with each other in photographs and interviews.
According to UK Today News, Russell Brand and Katy Perry were married in an extravagant wedding ceremony involving elephants and camels at a beautiful resort in India. The couple prepared for their traditional Hindu wedding ceremony with a full week of festivities. Katy Perry and Russell Brand were married in a private wedding ceremony with limited media allowed.
Hopefully Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s marriage is full of happiness and love. Good luck to the happy couple!
