Katy Perry And Russell Brand Make Sure Their Guests Are Having Fun

On one hand, SEVEN days of celebration for a wedding seems like a bit much, but that’s what Katy Perry and Russell Brand reportedly have planned. I guess if guests have to fly all the way to India for the wedding, you need to make it worth the trip!

People.com has some details about what their wedding guests have been doing, from visits to a wild life sanctuary to shopping in a bazaar.

Though the area is known for its tiger population, according to one wildlife guard, the group who went out early Thursday morning (which did not include the singer, 25, or the actor, 35) “saw baby deer, spotted deer, blue bulls, jackals, and jungle cats.” Still, the source says, “They were thrilled.”

Thursday, a small bazaar was set up inside the resort – an Indian wedding tradition – where guests could buy textiles, jewelry and Indian handicrafts, or have their fortune told – by a parrot. (He picks a card based on the Indian cosmic system.)

That evening the guests were entertained by 40 folk musicians and dancers.

“Everyone was relaxing by the pool and drinking and eating Indian snacks while we performed,” said Lalit Tiwari, who had brought the troupe into Ranthambhore from New Delhi. “Towards the end, some of them came towards the stage and started dancing during the ‘bhangra’ (an energetic dance from the rural area of Punjab).”

And that was just Thursday! On Friday, Katy and Russell joined their guests for a safari, and last night they reportedly held a mehndi ceremony: an Indian pre-wedding ritual.

It sounds like this will be a memorable occasion for everyone :). In the thumbnails are pictures of Katy’s parents enjoying camel rides on the safari.

Russell Brand’s Security Team Gets Into Scuffle With Photographers

According to E!, Russell Brand’s security team got into a physical confrontation with photographers today – beating them and leaving them stranded without car keys in the middle of a tiger sanctuary!

they were in a Jeep following about 330 feet behind a two-vehicle motorcade shuttling members of the Brand-Perry party around Ranthambhore National Park.

At that point, per the photogs, two of the actor’s security goons jumped out and began slugging away at the shooters and their driver. The cameramen claim their car keys were subsequently swiped by the bodyguards, essentially leaving them for mincemeat in tiger country.

I’m hoping this story is an exaggeration. Poor Katy is just trying to have a nice, peaceful week to celebrate her life with her new husband and THIS happens! Ugh. I want to see a few wedding photos just like anyone else, but not like this. E! mentions that these photographers weren’t “run of the mill paparazzi”, but pros from organizations like the AP and Reuters. My question is if these were real photographers with “legit” news agencies, why are they stalking behind Katy and Russell and violating their rights to privacy on this special occasion?

More Details About Katy Perry/Russell Brand Wedding

Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s crazy wedding celebrations kicked off last night with a feast featuring dancers and snake charmers. Supposedly the guests are going to be involved in major wedding festivities for 7 days. SEVEN DAYS! Personally, I feel that’s a little too long to be celebrating a wedding. I would be wiped out at the end, but that’s just me.

Anyway, as things go on, I’m sure more and more details will start to leak so I’ll be keeping you updated! The latest is that for the actual wedding ceremony (to be hold on Saturday), Katy and Russell will each have their own throne to sit own. The couple went to try them out the other day and “burst out laughing.”

A source also says,

“They are very much keeping to Indian tradition. There will be feasting and dancing. And Katy will be painted head-to-toe in henna tattoos.”

Then after the wedding, the couple has arranged for tours of the Ranthambore National Park wildlife sanctuary. They have approximately 80 guests.

Katy Perry Arrives To India

Looks like this weekend wedding is actually happening!! Here’s Katy Perry arriving to India with her parents and a group of friends. No sign of Russell Brand just yet – but I am sure he isn’t far away.

I am DYING to know what she has decided to wear for a wedding dress. Knowing Katy it’s going to be something really unique.

UPDATE – I found shots of Russell arriving as well. How exciting!!

Katy Perry And Russell Brand Ask For Privacy

Katy Perry took to her Twitter recently to ask for privacy during her upcoming nuptials to Russell Brand in India. Reportedly the guests are flying out for a SEVEN DAY celebration. Now that’s the way you do it!

Anyway, Katy tweeted,

TWIT BREAK: Greatest gift u can give us is respect & ♥ during this private X. No use wasting ur X w/ STOLEN or FALSE info. Thnku for this.”

Why do I have the feeling that no paparazzi cares about what Katy Perry writes on her Twitter. They are going to be out there in India either way, DESPERATE to get that money shot of Katy walking down the aisle!

Katy Perry Calls Out Her High School Crush

Katy Perry was filming a tv special for MTV this week when she spotted old high school crush Shane Lopes in the audience. Deciding to get even for him never returning her affections, Perry decided to dedicate her song ‘Ur So Gay’ to him. She said;

“You were the most popular kid in my class! You never wanted to date me, it was always Amanda Wayne. You really chose right, honey. What’s up now!? I’m going to dedicate this next one to Shane Lopes.”

Shane admitted to RadarOnline.com that he was pretty embarrassed after Katy made the announcement, and said;

“That whole story is pretty fabricated. I never got the feeling that she had a crush on me. We’ve always been friends. I think it was more for entertainment and she was figuring out a way to segue into her next song and kinda embarrass me just for fun.”

“I didn’t expect it, but I wasn’t shocked because that’s just her personality. She’s always been that way – very outspoken, goofy and she’s just a funny girl. It’s no different than the Katy I knew before.”

I don’t know if she was embarrassing him for fun, or maybe for a little bit of payback! Pretty sure that in high school, most boys know if a girl likes them, so I’m not really buying Shane’s story. Teenage girls aren’t known for the subtlety! Do you think Katy was just being funny, or secretly was she enjoying embarrassing Lopes?

Love Is In The Air: Jessica Alba And Katy Perry Spend Time With Their Men

I am loving Jessica Alba’s accessories here. That bag and those shoes… are major (ala Rachel Zoe). Here she is with husband Cash Warren heading to a wedding rehearsal at a private residence in Beverly Hills.

Another one of our favorite celebrity couples were photographed yesterday as well. Russell Brand returned to LAX in Los Angeles and found his soon-to-be wife waiting to pick him up in her car. Wonder if the waiting passengers knew that Katy Perry was just a few feet away from them at arrivals?!
