Russell Brand and Katy Perry are getting hitched

It’s funny, I actually said the other day: “I bet Russell Brand and Katy Perry get engaged soon.”  – to some friends you understand.  I don’t sit alone and ponder aloud about the personal lives of celebrities.  Really.

Anyway, the main reason I’m really writing about this is because I wanted to post this picture.  I have that hat Katy is wearing.  In fact I think half the world has it, I have seen it so much. I was definitely the first to wear it though.  It’s hard being a fashion icon, then watching as celebrities take credit for your cool style.

Anyway, happy 2010 to all my readers.  I’ve spent the last two weeks face down in a tin of Quality Street, with a bottle of wine in my hand, so sorry for being a bit absent.

Madonna speaks

Portrait of Madonna and Guy by Peter Howarth (more
interesting than a photograph of them!)

Her Madgesty has publicly addressed the rumours about her and Guy divorcing and her supposed affair with Alex Rodriguez.  She says:

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study. I have learned over the years not to take accusations and the many false reports about me very seriously. I also appreciate how fiction and fact seem to be perceived as one and the same by people who read both newspapers and the internet.

Good for her for not rising to the reports. Now she can concentrate on reaping the benefits of the extra press attention when she goes on tour.

Who knows whether they’re happily married or not?  He does look a bit grumpy with all the media attention most of the time, and she looks like one hard woman to please.  But maybe they… you know… really love each other and stuff?
