Russell Brand discussed John Mayer and Katy Perry with Howard Stern earlier this week, and his pop star ex was spared any truly brutal comments.

At least considering this is Russell Brand and Howard Stern.

"What do you make of your ex-wife dating John Mayer?" Stern asked, getting right down to it. "Doesn't she know that he's a worse womanizer than you?"

"Worse or better, depending on how you view it," Brand joked.

Looks like Russell Brand is looking to Spice up his love life with a new Girl.

That would be Geri Halliwell of Spice Girls fame! See what we did there?!

The 37-year-old British comic is now dating the 40-year-old singer, The Sun (UK) reports, along with pictures of them on a date at Hampton Court Palace in London with Bluebell, Geri's 6-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

Russell also posted this Twitpic after the Olympics' closing ceremonies:

Geri Halliwell recently alluded to a new relationship in an interview with British celeb gossip mag Hello: "I'm not going into details," she said, giggling.

"Right now there's nothing serious. I was a late starter on the romantic front. I didn't start dating until I was in my 30s ... I quite like having somebody to cuddle."

"I like that intimacy, it would be wonderful."

Earlier this summer, Brand dated Isabella Brewster, the younger sister of Dallas star Jordana Brewster, but the two reportedly broke things off.

Before that, he was married to Katy Perry. Maybe you've heard of her. Here's wishing Russell and Geri the best in their fledgling romance!

There's little gray area when it comes to Russell Brand doing anything live.

Reactions to the zany British comedian's bizarre appearance at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony were probably either "OMG this is awesomely weird" or "Who let Russell Brand sing?!" ... with little or no middle ground.

His home country crowd seemed more in the former camp, in any case:

Singing the song "Pure Imagination," a tune made famous by Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, Brand's performance was unique enough before it became a trippy, Beatles-themed psychedelic bus tour of Olympic Stadium.

Brand's rendition of "I am the Walrus" won't win him points in the vocal department, but you gotta give the guy credit for being original ... maybe.

For better or worse, he's no Taio Cruz.

She didn't even last one term as Governor of Alaska. She failed in her bid to become Vice President of the United States. At this point, she's merely a Fox News contributor and the mother of a reality TV star.

So why does Sarah Palin remain so newsworthy? Russell Brand has a theory.

  • Sarah Palin Interview Pic

"The reason that Sarah Palin has been so long tolerated is that latent inquisition around her vagina," Brand laughed yesterday during a Q&A session at the Television Critics Association press tour. "People want to f-ck her, don't they? That's why they tolerate the other stuff... The dick don't lie!"

The comedian, whose Brand X talk show has been picked up by FX for seven more episodes, was also asked about the recent Chick-fil-A controversy.

"Didn't Chick-fil-A say that they're racists now? Oh no, homophobic. I get mixed up with the prejudices. I forget who I'm supposed to hate."

We're gonna assume that many Republicans, following Brand's take on Palin, won't be as confused. They likely know where to direct their hatred at the moment.

You might wanna turn away, Katy Perry...

Multiple sources confirm that the blue-haired singer's ex-husband has started up a relationship with Isabella Brewster, as the sister of actress Jordana was spotted strolling through West Hollywood with Russell Brand over the weekend.

Isabella Brewster and Russell Brand

"It's been going on for a few weeks," an insider tells Us Weekly of Brand and Brewster, who has also dated Bradley Cooper and Milo Ventimiglia. "He really likes her."

The actor/comedian recently split from Perry after 14 months of marriage, with the singer admitting it was difficult for the pair to maintain their initial romance.

She's been linked to musician Robert Ackroyd of Florence + the Machine, but it appears as if Brand's fling with Brewster may be a bit more serious.

"She's cute," added the tabloid source. "She is all over him and Russell loves it."

Russell Brand's new TV show, Brand X, isn't getting a whole lot of support. At least not from funny graffiti artists around the greater L.A. area.

Check out this photo captured by TMZ of a billboard for it ...

Katy's 3D movie isn't even out yet (check out the Katy Perry: Part of Me trailer), but some clever, adventurous vandal clearly isn't a fan of Russell's new show.

The billboard seen above is located on L.A.'s Sunset Blvd. Hey, if you're going to deface someone else's property, you might as well be somewhat creative.

FYI, you can check out Russell's Brand X tonight on FX after Charlie Sheen's much talked-about new show Anger Management and Louis CK's Louie.

Sometimes it just doesn't work out.

That's the bottom line when it comes to Katy Perry's marriage to Russell Brand, she says in her new documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me, which chronicles the many highs and lows in Katy's personal life as well as her stage persona.

"Being in love is a dream, but the reality is not like the movies. There's a lot more compromise and sacrifice," says Perry, and she knows from experience.

Katy Perry Twitpic

Prior to their split, Perry informed her management that the longest she would go without seeing Brand was two weeks; it didn't always turn out that way.

At one point, a frustrated Perry learned she'd go 18 days without him. "Where are my relationship days?" she asked, looking at her jam-packed schedule.

The constant traveling took its tool even when she had them. "She'll fly to wherever Russell is," a team member said. "She's running herself ragged."

One scene from the film shows Katy Perry without makeup on an airplane, looking into camera and admitting: "I'm trying to keep my marriage alive."

After Brand filed for divorce in December, Perry was visibly and understandably upset. "The truth is I'm a romantic and I believed in the fairy tale."

"I did everything I could but it still failed," the "Wide Awake" singer said. "The dream of being in love is a lot different than the reality of making it work."

Russell Brand is fairly zen about his divorce from Katy Perry.

In an interview with the Lorraine show on the UK's ITV1 while doing publicity rounds for Rock of Ages, the British funnyman offered up a rather sanguine view.

"Well, it did work out in a way because you are married for some time, and that's really good, and then you're not married, and that's really good," he said.

Right??!? Profound yet simple. Best spin on a divorce ever!

A Russell Brand and Katy Perry Pic

The 37-year-old Brand and the 27-year-old Perry swapped vows in October 2010 in a lavish ceremony in India only to see their marriage unravel in 14 months.

While divorce is never easy, he's come to terms with it.

"You just have to have acceptance of things. She is a person I love, but now this is a new time. I suppose divorce is difficult, isn't it, because of the admin! There's a lot of admin!"

Seriously. On a different level of love, Brand gushed over ... Alec Baldwin.

"He's like sort of a big powerful, hairy, sexy uncle," he said of his Rock of Ages co-star. "Which in the wrong circumstances could be a terrible thing."

"But in the circumstances that I found myself in, it was really lovely. He's really friendly, and he's really clever, and really sweet and gave me wonderful advice."

Random, hilarious bromance alert?

At the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday evening, host Russell Brand kicked off the event with a zany monologue in which he mocked Justin Bieber, Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian, Michael Fassbender's penis, Katy Perry and himself.

After giving Bieber props for his alleged scuffle with a photographer, Brand said, "Justin Bieber is so pretty that even if he was attacking me, I'd do a little orgasm."

It only got zanier from there.

"The last time I hosted I did marry someone who was there, so I'm keeping my eyes open for a new wife tonight," Brand said, before shouting, "Fassbender!"

That would be Michael Fassbender, who was there to represent Prometheus.

Brand also goofed on Charlie Sheen, who was there for reasons unknown, saying he'd stashed alcohol and some cocaine under the actor's seat. You know, just in case.

Perhaps most amusingly, Brand thanked Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for taking the pressure off of him - in terms of short-lived marriages and humiliating MTV award moments, respectively - and said he hopes they make a sex tape together.

Hopefully Kanye learns from his predecessor and stays sober during it, though, because Ray J "just looked a little too pleased with himself" while nailing KK.

Brand would also shot out "Twilight!" and "Hunger Games!" intermittently and for no apparent reason. What do you think of Russell's monologue? Grade it below:

Justin Bieber's alleged attack on a member of the paparazzi - who accuses him of roughing him up and leaving him in need of medical attention - is clearly BS.

Can you see Justin Bieber roughing someone up? Seriously?

That's beside the point, though. Whatever happened, Biebs' altercation is just the latest in a long string of tense run-ins between stars and the media who cover the celebrity gossip we crave. Here's a look back at seven of the most memorable:

1. Britney Spears: After a downward spiral that saw her shave her head, file for divorce and deliver her second child in the span of a year, Spears suffered a meltdown in February 2007 that saw her violently attack a paparazzo's car with an umbrella:

2. Russell Brand: Katy Perry's ex recently gave a whole new meaning to the term "dropped call" as he grabbed a photographer's iPhone and flung it through a nearby window. Brand later turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

3. Kanye West: The rapper racked up three misdemeanor charges in 2008 after he was arrested for allegedly wrestling with a photographer at LAX, grabbing his camera and smashing it on the floor. The charges were eventually dropped.
