Katy Perry engaged to Russell Brand?

Did Russell Brand put a ring on it?

Reports are surfacing that the comedian proposed to girfriend Katy Perry, five days ago, during their romantic getaway in Jaipur.

The news comes just three-weeks after the 34-year-old presenter was spotted shopping for a ring in Cartier’s flagship West London store. It is thought that he finally settled on a large, square-cut diamond set in a platinum band.

He then whisked the 25-year-old starlet away for a Christmas break in India, where he is said to have popped the question. A source tells Us magazine: “She told him how much she loved Indian culture while they were eating curry in England, so he surprised her.”

The pair, who began dating in September last year, posted several pictures of themselves enjoying the cultural break on Twitter – one which included the Waking Up In Vegas singer and Brand in front of India’s Taj Mahal with the accompanying message: “He built this for me.”

Super cute. Congrats!

Russell Brand blasts Daily Mail over Katy Perry marriage “lies”

Could wedding bells be ringing soon for Russell Brand and Katy Perry? I wouldn’t hold your breath.

The comedian called-out the Daily Mail on its “lies” for publishing an article which he supposedly reveals he is finally ready to settle down and start a family with his pop-star girlfriend, claiming he said: “I’d love to marry Katy – hopefully it’s heading that way and I’m really happy. I do want to have children.”

However, the 34-year-old, who has been courting the ‘Waking Up In Vegas‘ singer since September, has blasted the quote as false via his Twitter account: “The Daily Mail tell lies. ‘Nathan Kay’ is a pustule of untruth. I suppose we ought be grateful they’ve stopped supporting Hitler”

Err…well, I guess that clears that up then.

Katy Perry dating Russell Brand?

Russell Brand - Katy Perry

Katy Perry has fuelled speculation that she is dating British comedian Russell Brand after the pair were spotted walking hand-in-hand through Hampstead Heath, London on Friday.

The ‘Waking Up In Vegas’ singer is rumored to be romancing the funny-man after reportedly hooking up at the MTV Video Music Awards last month. 

What followed was old-fashioned courtship with 34-year-old Brand sending Perry a love poem and asking for one in return, only to receive err… a topless photo of the ‘Hot ‘N Cold’ star with the word ‘Poem’ written across her chest.

Glad to see romance is still alive.

Russell Brand has declared war on Justice Minister and Lord Chancellor Jack Straw via his page on networking site Twitter.

Responding to calls from the former Foreign Minister that the comedian and Jonathan Ross should pay the BBC’s £150,000 Manuelgate fine, the funny-man retaliated by demanding Straw pay back the £7billion he squandered on the Iraq war.”

He added: “No wonder his son has to toke himself to sleep.”

In relation to an incident in 1997 where Mr Straw’s son William was caught smoking and selling cannabis.

Ouch! Low-blow from Russell, but point made. 

Touché sir.
