What, you thought Katy Perry and Russell Brand‘s divorce was going to be a civil, dignified affair? HA! You’re talking about a girl who wore cupcakes and a guy who made a movie about an Easter Bunny that shits jelly beans into Kaley Cuoco‘s mouth. There was no way this can end well. So here’s a “source” claiming that Russell was an unsupportive husband who told Katy she wasn’t funny on Saturday Night Live. And lo, did the eternal battle between pot and kettle claim yet another victim. Us Weekly reports:
Weeks before, when the Firework singer guest-hosted Saturday Night Live, the British comic turned down Perry’s plea to perform in a skit with him, remaining in L.A. instead. And after Perry had pulled off her SNL stint? “He told her that she wasn’t that funny,” an insider says of Perry’s skits parodying Pippa Middleton, Christina Aguilera and others. “That really hurt.” And when the Arthur star did show up to support his wife, as he did at Perry’s final concert stop in November, “He was totally uninterested and seemed annoyed he was there,” says a witness. “I don’t think he sat through one song.”
I hate to break it to Brand, but he’s no Patton Oswalt either. You can only squint at your audience while rambling on about random observations for so long before it stops being funny. And by “so long” I mean about 37 seconds. Plus when you ruin one of the greatest comedic films ever with an unnecessary remake that not even Helen Mirren could save, you can’t really talk about what is and isn’t funny.
