Brand's Love For Perry Began With A Bracelet
RUSSELL BRAND has a unique memento from the night he fell in love with KATY PERRY - the singer handed over her ALEXANDER MCQUEEN bracelet to remind the funnyman of her.
The British comic sealed their relationship with a New Year's Eve (31Dec09) proposal in India after a whirlwind romance, which began at last year's (09) MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).
In his upcoming autobiography, Booky Wook 2: This Time It's Personal, Brand reveals the I Kissed A Girl hitmaker gifted him with her special MCQueen bangle at a rehearsal for the music ceremony after he complimented her on the "nice" trinket.
Recalling the incident, he writes, "(She replied) 'You think so? Thanks.' It is an Alexander MCQueen bangle, a simple hoop with two skulls facing each other at the ends. Wordlessly she smiles, removes it and places it on my wrist, gently handcuffing me."
And the comment sparked an exchange which would cement their relationship.
Brand remembers how he attempted to remove the bracelet from his wrist to hand it back to the sexy singer: "But she interrupts. 'It's okay. Keep it. To remind you of me.'... I look at her and it makes me feel still. Then, looking into her eyes, quietly I say: 'I don't need anything to remind me of you.' That is how I fell in love.
"Throughout (the VMAs) I carried the bracelet in my pocket. Even though she was there."
