Does "Katy Brand's Big A~ Show" Star Katy Perry, or Does Russ Have a Sis. Katy?

If that is Mrs. Russell Brand (formerly Katy Perry), I've got to say ... either I wasn't paying attention before, or she's kinda let herself go! Any way--not being a huge 'Katy Perry'-fan--I didn't even think of her when I saw "Katy Brand's Big A~ Show" on the BBC (that's the second time I almost called it "Katy Perry's Big A~ Show" not that I think it might be her) But I was watching FUSE's "Katy Perry Takeover" today, heard that she & British comedian Russell Brand are married (and heard her talking in her new accent), and started putting 2 & 2 together. Still, I think I would've liked the "Big A~ Show" better if it were "Katy Perry's"---I would've been in a more 'musical'-mood than a 'British comedy'-mood. That's why big stars keep their original last names when they get married: because they've devoted so much energy to building their reputation into their original names. What do you think about big stars changing last-names when they get married?

Well, a lot of them have changed their names, or hyphenate them when they get married, and then there are some that keep their names just because that is how they are known as. For someone like Katy Perry she might have switched her name for the type of show she is doing for people to get to know her in another way, but maybe she also just felt it was time for a change?

I'm not even sure if the Katy Brand in the 'Big A~ Show' IS Katy Perry; are they the same person, do you know?

I think it's up to them. I really had a hard time with it when I got married and I'm no celebrity. I could see my husband's feelings were hurt but I had my last name since I was born. How would he feel? I didn't like "losing" my identity like that and we shouldn't have to. I did go ahead with the idea legally but I can still post my name in forums and other places with a hyphen if I want to include my maiden name. I think some celebrities may even compromise in such a way and use their original name publicly. Of course for them, their name is part of their money making machine.

It's a sign of the changing times; I don't like it, it makes me all "Grumpy Old Man" (and I'm only 30 right now, but) 'Back in myyyy dayyyy, people weren't "complete" until they were married ... they were disconnected power-cords, and marriage was the fastener that secured them as part of a family-machine.' It's how I'm feeling now---single, and so not 'part of a family-machine.' If I were to marry the right girl, I might even take her name (or we could both take my mom's maiden-name ... she divorced my dad, but stays true to her vows; I vowed no such vows, and my mom's side of the family is well-constructed ). Men today--it seems--are expected to be complete systems of-themselves before they can attract women and have any hope of a successful relationship. That's bad; because it makes for lazy women and over-worked men!

I don't know much about the couple, I just know once I saw Russel Brand on Saturday Night Live and thought he was kind of funny, and found out he was married to Katy Perry who I don't know much about either. I've actually seen in a tabloid somewhere that they are getting a divorce, so I suppose it may be the "former" Mrs. Russel Brand. I do think that celebrities should be allowed to change their names to their husbands if they so choose, Pamela Anderson Lee Lee Anderson Lee Anderson Lee, well you get the point, she did, and we knew who she was. It's just work for them to be "Known" as the new last name.
