Katy Perry, the sweetest girl on the pop scene
right now, as some like to think of her, has been dating British comedian Russell Brand for a couple of months now. They might make one of the oddest couples in showbiz, but that’s not to say they’re not serious about it: in fact, they might just make it more serious, as Brand has been spotted out shopping for an engagement ring, News of the World
Granted, this is not the most reliable publication out there but, as they say, pictures are worth a thousand words. And, in this case, pictures don’t lie, as they show Brand, once known for his popularity with the ladies and his ability of going with two of them at a time, looking at engagement rings. This might justify talk that he’s thinking of proposing to Katy over Christmas.
“This is the photo I never thought I’d bring you – Russell Brand shopping for a diamond sparkler. I caught the one-time zillion-girls-a-month comic hunting for the perfect band at posh London jewelrs Cartier on Friday. And take note, lads. This seems to be how you check out if you’ve made the right choice – as Russell plonks it on his ring finger and gazes at it longingly (and not just because he’s dumbstruck by the price),” News of the World writes.
The shop manager too confirms for the tab that Brand seemed to be truly looking for something “special.” “His face lit up when he saw this one diamond ring. He put it on his hand and he just gazed at it for ages, deep in contemplation,” he says for News of the World. Oddly enough, even though pictures show the comedian looking at diamond rings, there is no word yet on whether he made any purchase or, for that matter, whether his friend (he was not alone) bought anything.
Still, the aforementioned tab is convinced that Katy Perry will receive a sparkler with her present this Christmas. Brand too repeatedly told the media that he was head over heels in love with her, even hinting that he was having very serious thoughts about her. “She’s the one. I’m a one-woman gentleman now. She’s really funny and gorgeous
. We’re having a lot of fun,” Russell was telling the British media the other week.
