Brand, 34, known for his literary wit, meanwhile, wrote the same week, "I'm in Thailand, is it right for non Buddhists to visit temples? Is it ok to snog the statues?"
Whether they were together in Thailand or not, they were definitely together in London on Friday where the pair were photographed walking side-by-side.
As for Perry's "HUGE" news, she revealed it Friday via Twitter. "I'm hosting the MTV EUROPE MUSIC AWARDS AGAIN," she posted, "This time w/MORE outfits, MORE antics!"
Brand, too, has been an MTV host: He helmed the MTV Video Music Awards for the past two years, and appeared onstage with Perry this year. At the September ceremony, the two were rumored to have shared a kiss.
