Russell Brand is pretty awesome, and it's hard to blame Katy Perry for gushing about her new husband. But deifying the man, that we didn't see coming.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand just got married in India last month. The sexy pop star told Harper’s Bazaar: “I always knew I wanted a great man of God."

"Someone who's an inspiration for people and also a lovely husband and father. We’re at different places in our lives, but we can still grow together.

Okay, maybe Katy's got a point. Look at the man.

Of her spouse, Katy continues, “He’s thought-provoking, articulate, a real advocate. I also definitely wanted to have a laugh. I have all that in him.”

Perry, who describes herself as a 10 out of 10 in bed, also talked to the mag about her unique fashion style, body image and what makes her tick.

“I’m kind of a good girl, and I’m not,” Perry says.

Russell Brand and Katy Perry tied the knot Saturday night in India.

The couple "were pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Brand on Saturday, October 23," they said after marrying in a private ceremony attended by close family and friends and performed by a Christian minister and longtime friend of Katy's family.

We couldn't be happier for the two of them.

Katy Perry is now Mrs. Russell Brand!

Katy Perry and Russell Brand exchanged wedding vows at a luxury resort, with the backdrop "the inspirational and majestic countryside of Northern India."

In the days leading up to the nuptials (which you can follow this link to read all about), Brand and Perry have been pulling out all the stops for their guests.

It sounds like the result was a near-perfect event. Despite the lavishness of certain aspects of the wedding, Russell said it was all about keeping it simple.

Celebrities 2, Paparazzi 0. That's the score this weekend.

A day after Adam Lambert was accused of battery in a scuffle with a member of the paparazzi, Russell Brand was arrested and questioned by police for the same.

The comedian was making his way through LAX airport yesterday when reports say he lashed out at paparazzi attempting to photograph Katy Perry too closely.

Russell Brand says the paps crossed the line attempting to photograph Katy, and he let them know it. His reward? A battery charge and a brief stint behind bars.

Brand is accused of pushing one photographer and striking others while defending his fiancee, who says the paps tried to take photos up her skirt. Messed up.

A victim performed a citizen’s arrest on Brand and he was interviewed by airport police before being taken into custody for a misdemeanor charge of battery.

Buzz is building online that Russell Brand got Katy Perry pregnant.

While this is purely speculative at this time, Katy's recent Twitter remarks have People wondering. The pregnancy rumors started with a January 1 message:

“Let me tell you 2010 is BUMPIN!” Then this past Friday, the cute singer wrote, “Hey @rustyrockets” – Russell Brand’s Twitter name – “i heard ur prego-ed.”

She adds, “I WANT IN AND OUT,” in reference to the delicious Southern California hamburger chain, before telling Brand, “I love you … (awwwww barf!).”

It just works somehow.

Katy, like many other stars, likes to Tweet a lot. We're not talking about non-stop, desperate, Tila Tequila-style Twittering, but she sure does love to Tweet.

The two just got engaged in India. The pregnancy gossip is likely much ado about nothing, although we hold out hope for a Perry/Brand shotgun wedding.

On December 28, we reported that Katy Perry and Russell Brand might be engaged. Today, you can officially take "might be" out of the equation!

The crazy pair, who have been together for just a few months, decided to make it official five days ago while on vacation together in Jaipur, India.

A pal says that Russell Brand proposed and Katy Perry said yes. Then he kissed a girl, ladies and gentlemen, and she liked it. Sorry, that was bad.

The exotic trip, a Perry pal said, "was his Christmas gift. She told him she loved Indian culture while they were in England, so he surprised her."

Looks like he had more than one surprise in store!

Katy Perry and Russell Brand just work as a couple.

On her Twitter page December 29, the pop singer shared a sweet snapshot of her and the zany British comedian in front of India's famed Taj Mahal.

"He built this for me," she wrote beneath the photo.

On New Year's Day, Katy Perry shared another tourist photo: her hand being painted with a traditional Henna tattoo. "Isn't it lovely?" she wrote.

At November's MTV Europe Music Awards, Perry paid tribute to Brand via her on-stage underpants, emblazoned with his nickname, "Rusty."

Perry has "never connected with anybody like this," says a friend of the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star, who is reportedly "super into her."

Good to hear! And congrats!

He's a notorious ladies' man; they just started dating in October; and no named sources have gone on record with confirmation of their engagement.

For those reasons, we're hesitant to officially announce that Russell Brand and Katy Perry have agreed to marry - but that's exactly what Great Britain's The Daily Mirror is reporting.

“Russell knows Katy’s the one for him," an insider told the newspaper, saying Brand popped the question during a pre-Christmas ski trip. “He’s never been into a girl like he has with her and they’re besotted. He asked her to marry him last week and she quickly said yes."

Brand and Perry will tie the knot in 2010, the source claims.

Russell and Katy

If this article is true, we'll be one of the first to congratulate Brand and Perry. They do look cute together, don't they?

“Katy’s thrilled with Russell and how he is ­making so much effort," the insider said. "Russell also has the ­approval of Katy’s ­parents and everyone in the pair’s close circle knows about the ­engagement.”

Consider yourselve part of the close circle now, THG readers. Send Berry your best wishes on a happy future today!

Katy Perry may have a hit song called "Hot N Cold," but her love affair with Russell Brand looks like it's only the former! Sorry, that was very lame.

Nevertheless, the rumored couple kept their new love on fire in Paris as they showed up at the John Galliano runway show at Paris Fashion Week.

Pretty Perry

They arrived with their arms around one another.

The up-and-coming singer and the MTV VMAs host showed up to the runway show looking proud to be together, happily posing together for photos.

Katy and Russell were escorted to the front row, a few seats down from Prince, with whom they chatted. Russell rubbed Katy’s back during the “Sunset Blvd” themed-show and together they whispered in each other’s ears a lot.

Are Katy Perry and Russell Brand an item?

The couple held hands and Russell kissed his lady love on the cheek when the show came to a close. Looks like this weird romance is totally on!

After the show, Katy Perry Twittered, “Oh my, Galliano was by far the best. It was a dark sexy dream of beautiful mental sparkling women."

"I can relate to that, the mental part.”

Oh, Katy. She and Russell were first spotted together at the actor’s London home. He then jetted to Paris to be by Katy’s side at the Fendi party.

In a new promo for the upcoming MTV VMAs, host Russell Brand tries to convince Britney Spears to sleep with him using old-fashioned mental telepathy.

Really, what guy hasn't tried that over the past 10 years?

In the clip, a bikini-clad Britney Spears hears voices in her head, kinda like in 2007 during her British accent phase. Only this time, it's Russell Brand's.

The zany British comic, who can also hear her thoughts, responds telepathically with "Go to Russell's hotel room. Abandon yourself! Sleep with Russell!"

Direct, but unfortunately for him, probably not effective.

Funny, though. Check out their MTV promo below ...

After controversially hosting the MTV Video Music Awards last year, Russell Brand is back to host the awards again on September 13 in New York City.

The zany British comic ruffled feathers at last year’s made up, but still entertaining ceremony when he joked that the Jonas Brothers should be taking advantage of their celebrity status to get laid and mocked the concept of "purity rings."

Our personal favorite joke came at the expense of both the Brothers Jonas and then-ridiculously unpopular President George W. Bush, as Brand quipped:

"I feel sorry for Americans. Eight years of Bush! The only people who need eight years of bush are the Jonas Brothers, crammed into one bachelor party."

Just leave Danielle Deleasa out of it this year, okay Russ?

Russell Brand is running it back at the VMAs again this September.

“We are thrilled that despite numerous death threats from Jonas Brothers fans, Russell Brand has accepted our offer to put his life on the line and host the VMAs again this year,” MTV’s general manager, Stephen Friedman, said.

Taylor Swift will also appear on the live show, performing a new version of “You Belong With Me.” We can hear the inappropriate comments from Brand now.

While Brand was panned by many, the 2008 VMAs reached more than 23 million viewers, a 15 percent boost from the 2007 hostless edition of the VMAs (best remembered for Britney Spears' disastrous performance of "Gimme More").
