Trending Now

Morrissey has advised pop singer Katy Perry not to marry comedian and actor Russell Brand.

Perry revealed that she recently had tea with Morrissey, during which he told her not to tie the knot with Brand, to whom she is currently engaged.

“He’s Russell‘s mate and he is fascinating but he was giving us a hard time about getting married. He swooned and sighed, ‘Oh, left hand third finger, don’t do it’. It was just so eloquent and poetic and like one of his songs,” said Perry, reports The Sun.

However, the pair have still invited Morrissey to their wedding, which is set to take place in India this autumn, though Perry admitted: “It would be great to have him at the wedding but I told him, ‘We can’t have a Mr Misery like you messing things up.'”
