Katy Perry & Russell Brand

The Die Was Cast Early On

1/1/2012 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katy Perry & Russell Brand
Sources close to Katy Perry and Russell Brand tell TMZ ... the couple was infatuated with each other when they tied the knot, but the honeymoon ended very quickly.

According to our sources, Katy and Russell were initially head over heels for each other – each fascinated to be with someone who was an extreme opposite.

But we're told the two began a regime of constant bickering after they got married -- often in front of people at clubs and awards shows. They're both very stubborn and neither would easily back down.

Our sources tell us ... because of the friction and their schedules, they never spent long periods of time with each other.

One big bone of contention  ... Russell was much more of a homebody than Katy.  Katy loved going out and partying, while Russell (who is sober) didn't enjoy the scene at all. We're told he would often insist on leaving places early and asking her to come with ... which would trigger an argument.

But we're told ... as the dust settles, neither hates the other -- far from it.   There's no bad blood between them, and neither of them believes the other cheated.

As one person put it, "It was just a bad pairing."

OK, explain this to me. Is Russel Brand supposed to be funny, or is he some sort of performance artist? Because he's not funny. Not funny. I've never seen a comedian that couldn't make me laugh a little, and Russel Brand is terrible. I know this has nothing to do with this article, but I enjoy pointing out just how terrible a talent Brand is. God, does he suck!

I'm really enjoying all these article with Brand in them, because it gives me an opportunity to point out how bad he sucks. No talent.

Makes me even more impressed with Russell. He's funny as hell AND he lives sober. It is very hard for one who is sober to be married to someone who isn't.

The bottom line is that, knowing her husband is a recovering addict, she should not have continued to party, drink and likely do drugs. The guy was a heroin addict for god's sake. He can't have a drunk wife.

Too bad the Hollywierd types don't know how to use their brains and think things through BEFORE they get married! Idiots!

Katy's good friend Rihanna ought to try to hook her up with Taylor Kitsch if he doesn't have a girlfriend. Rihanna and Taylor just did a movie called "Battleship" that's coming out soon.

It looks like Taylor is about to become an "A list" actor in Hollywood. I think Taylor and Katy would look good hanging out in Hollywood. TMZ would be after them though. Maybe their personalities are compatible too. Who knows?

Taylor might end up being as successful as Katy someday so they wouldn't have petty jealousies about money and status and all that. He might could give Katy a few tips about the acting business while they're on a date. Katy and Taylor are about the same age and he probably likes to go out on the town and drink a few beers. Taylor sure seemed to like drinking beer on that TV show "Friday Night Lights". :)

I think "opposites attract" doesn't really work for relationships in the long run. I think "like attracts like" in the dating game. After you've been with a girl for a few years, you want to have some things in common that both of you can do together. Hobbies and recreational activities like tennis, bowling, riding bicycles or golf or something.

For those that don't like intelligent comedy, I understand. Don't worry, Larry the Cable Guy is not going anywhere. Russell Brand is our living Andy Kaufman, I hope he doesn't get cancer and die though. He's fricking brilliant to those of us who enjoy good comedy.

VladZu is too stupid to get Russell Brand's comedic genius (Russell's wit and intellect are razor sharp). VladZu probably thinks Tim Allen is funny. He's not.

Because he doesn't drink, he seems like a great catch. People who drink are so unattractive.

I keep thinking when he finally saw her w/o the 12 pounds of makeup and listened to her music he could have gotten an annulment right away. Not that he is any big catch or beauty.
