Katy Perry Takes Husband Russell Brand's Name

The mostly secret wedding between pop singer Katy Perry and her comedian husband Russell Brand on October 23, 2010 was a prime example of tradition. With a great dress and exchange of wedding vows, twenty six year old Perry took on her husband's name and has been calling herself "Mrs. Brand" since.

On Wednesday, Perry was a guest on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and laughingly ribbed back at host Ellen DeGeneres on the subject of her husband's latest crush and Arthur costar Helen Mirren. Perry quipped: "She [Mirren] needs to step off my man. Actually, I kind of don't mind that someone else takes some of the responsibility, because it's a lot of work [being Mrs. Brand]...There's never a dull moment, except when he is out doing crack or cheating on me."

Perry's statements were in jest but relatively fact based. Perry's husband has a reputation of serial cheating, sex addiction, and drug abuse but makes the singer laugh. Perhaps laughter is the key to celebrity marriages.
