Russell Brand Decries Drug Laws, Addiction Stigma in Philip Seymour Hoffman's Death

Originally posted 02/08/2014 12:00PM

In a column filled with fiery criticism, British comedian Russell Brand partly blames drug laws and society's treatment of addiction for the apparent overdose death of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Writing in the U.K.'s The Guardian Brand, 38, a recovering addict himself, decries celebrity culture and media seeking to popularize a star's public fall from grace, but argues that drug prohibition and the criminalization of drugs exacerbate the problem.

"Philip Seymour Hoffman's death is a reminder, though, that addiction is indiscriminate. That it is sad, irrational and hard to understand," Brand writes.

It wasn't a good sign for me when "Roar," the No. 1 single that heralded Katy Perry's third studio album, felt kind of tame compared to Sara Bareilles's "Brave," a similar self-empowerment anthem that came out a few months before.

But the good news is that "Roar" (which, admittedly, has since grown on me) isn't even one of the best songs on the vibrant, multicolored Prism – and there are certainly plenty more hits where that came from.

This is a pop blockbuster that easily beats 2010's hit-laden behemoth Teenage Dream. It finds Perry once again working with A-list producers like Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Stargate and Benny Blanco, and they deliver the hooks and beats for the diva, whether it's blissful dance tracks ("Birthday") or forceful power ballads ("Unconditionally").

Got an interview with Barbara Walters? Here's a tip: Don't be late.

Katy Perry learned that the hard way when, during a scheduled sit-down with the veteran journalist, she happened be running behind schedule ... only to run straight into Walters's ire when the interview finally got under way.

In the latest issue of Billboard, the "Roar" singer, 28, looks back on the encounter, which happened to coincide with the demise of Perry's marriage to her then husband, Russell Brand.

Katy Perry: Russell Brand Said He Was Divorcing Me Via Text

Katy Perry says Russell Brand was "a magical man" when they met four years ago, but the spell wore off shortly after their Indian wedding in October 2010. And it bottomed out when the actor sent her a text 14 months later informing her he planned to file for divorce.

"He's a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him," Perry tells Vogue in a revealing cover interview for its July issue. "Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011."

Perry, 28, says that Brand, 38, seemed to have difficulty accepting her role as a successful musician and businesswoman – even if that's what he thought he wanted.
