Russell Brand Responds To Katy Perry’s ‘Vogue’ Comments

“When youre a monk, youre not allowed to have sex with anyone. When youre married, its one person. Thats one more than a monk. Its not that different. Id be having sex thinking, Think of anyone, anyone else .'” The London Evening Standard’s comedy writer, Bruce Dessau, confirmed that the comic joked about feeling so “lost” after his split from Perry that he considered embracing monkhood. A rep for Brand could not be immediately reached for comment. In June, Brand spoke with Esquire UK about the challenges of marriage , saying he and his ex both had “a lot of options.” Despite that, he insists he was always monogamous. “It’s a hard-core thing, monogamy,” he told HuffPost Live that same month . “It’s a hard-core principle. But beautiful, and to be recommended. And if you make a commitment to it, you’ve got to do it. When I was married, monogamy straight down the middle. You can’t mess around with that stuff.” As for Perry, the 28-year-old recently told Elle UK she has been with some “challenging” men .
