Russell Brand Nixed Katy Perry-John Mayer Hookup!

by at . Comments

Apparently John Mayer doesn't always get the girl. Thank goodness.

As if Katy Perry and Russell Brand weren't awesome enough, the zany British comic apparently rescued her from J-Mayer's clutches at the last second!

According to E! News, John and Katy were well on their way to sexy coupledom when Russell intercepted her at the 2009 VMAs and snagged KP for himself.

As celebrity love triangles go, this one worked out for the best.

It was love at first sight at the awards show. But just one night earlier, Perry and the douchebag met in person after weeks of trading flirty tweets and texts.

"They'd never met in person, and she went to meet him there after she was at a Jay-Z concert at Madison Square Garden," a source close to Mayer reports.

"John thought she was so hot and fun and was into her," the insider says. "They were flirty and all over each other at the bar, they really liked each other."

"They were dancing and it was on."

They stayed at the bar until late, leaving only moments apart from the downtown bar, conveniently just around the corner from Mayer's love nest. Gag.

The next day, which happened to be the VMAs, the two traded more flirty texts. But before their relationship could blossom any further, enter Brand.

As luck would have it, Russell, who was hosting the awards, was instantly taken by the "Teenage Dream" singer, openly admiring her from the stage.

She was equally smitten. The rest is history.

I really don't think that Russel "I'm annoying, British and not funny" Brand is much of an upgrade over John "my music is overrated" Mayer. Either way you slice it, Katy "everyone look at my boobs" Perry was going to end up with some sort of sexually transmitted disease.
