    Russel is pure Rock n Roll! Katy Perry is an unbelievable boring mainstream puppet, another construction of the global musicindustry, a honester version of Lady Gaga and Britney Spears, to get even more money from MTV- kids and people without any musical background or knowledge.

    Katy Perry is "the woman that married Russell Brand" in my eyes.
