Ellen DeGeneres has Katy Perry on her show and totally forgets she married Russell Brand

May 17, 2017

Ellen DeGeneres is usually adept at dealing with superstars on her daytime talk show.

But this week she had something of a mishap – forgetting the major star her A-list celeb guest had been married to.

Katy Perry, who was banned from talking to gay people as a kid, was on the sofa ahead of the release of her new record.

Ellen had set Perry the game, Will You Perry Me? asking the I Kissed A Girl star who of the celebs she wanted to kiss.

DeGeneres pledged to donate $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America if she was honest.

However, if we’re being honest, all of her answers were not the best thing about the encounter.

Asking Perry who she will marry, the singer replied saying she didn’t want to marry again.

“You weren’t married!” an incredulous DeGeneres said.

“It’s been a long time, honey. No wrinkles, no lines!

“What a time to be alive,” Perry joked.

Eventually she had to whisper: “His name was Russell Brand.”

Watch the awkward encounter below:

Katy Perry recently revealed how she was banned from talking to gay people as a teen.

Perry, the daughter of evangelical Pentecostal pastors, has been candid in the past about her sheltered upbringing.

In the interview, she described her youth in “a bubble beyond the bubble”.

She explained: “The schools were really makeshift. Education was not the first priority. My education started in my 20s, and there is so much to learn still.”

Perry said that when she was young, she was “not allowed to interact with gay people”, but added: “I came out of the womb asking questions, curious from day one.

“I am really grateful for that: My curiosity has led me here. Anything I don’t understand, I will just ask questions about.”

Perry recently opened up about her journey while receiving a Human Rights Campaign award.
