Katy Perry and Russell Brand marry in India

The wedding of two B-list stars somehow makes for A-list news, which explains why I'm writing this post about the weekend nuptials of saucy pop songstress Katy Perry and ribald, hirsute British comedian Russell Brand.

The bride wore a dove gray Elie Saab gown for the traditional Hindu ceremony, which took place in a tiger sanctuary in the state of Rajasthan. According to one PO'd public official, Russty may have violated a number of local laws and noise ordinances between the revelry and the scuffles between photogs and security guards.

According to E! News:

An inquiry into the debacle has been ordered by the state government and, should further questioning be required, they could possibly detain Brand, Perry, the wedding guests and organizers of the event. Should they take it all the way, the group could also be called to court.

Oops. Hopefully Russell and Katy can make amends before causing an international incident. In the meantime, you can spend the next five or so minutes browsing our deluxe gallery of photos from before, after and outside the wedding.

Then, since we didn't get a peek inside, watch this short video clip from the wedding of "Simpsons" character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon:

She didn't want to be seen wearing clothes.

Wow, the gallery of pictures was slightly disturbing (and of course I looked through them all) but really why take and show pictures of other photographers being thrown out? All it shows is how much they don't want you there taking pictures.

So Russell Brand might go to court because his wedding got rowdy.

But a guy can marry a dog.

...or a woman can marry a snake.

So, yeah, go ahead and worry about getting Russty to pipe down...

i know this is offtopic liz - and sorry for the threadjack - but i'm thinking there should be a celebritology 'Keep Spandex Alive/Bring Back Firefly' post march event saturday... i think several of us are coming to DC to bring our Dadaist 'forward not backward, upward not forward, and always twirling twirling twirling into the future' political message to your stomping ground.

Let me get this straight. According to the picture gallery, Russell Brand's brother is called David Hudson and Katy Perry's sister is called Angela Perry. OK. But Katy Perry's parents are called Keith and Mary Hudson????? Ok I lied about getting this straight.
