Recent entertainment news tells us that RUSSELL BRAND hosted the MTV Movie Awards last Sunday and opened the show with a joke about none other than his pop star ex, KATY PERRY.

Oh, that wasn’t weird at all!

British comedian Russell Brand was clearly the right choice to host this year’s MTV Movie Awards held in Universal City in California on Sunday–he was witty, honest, and unbiased.

Other than poking fun at Justin Bieber‘s alleged battery case recently and Michael Fassbender‘s role as a sex addict in “Shame,” he also dared to joke about his own personal life, specifically his now non-existent relationship with ex-wife, Katy Perry.

He quipped:

“The last time I did an MTV awards show, I did end up marrying someone that was there.”

If Katy had bittersweet butterflies in her tummy, they all quickly turned sour when Russell, who was talking about his hosting stint at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009, finished the joke:

“So tonight I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for my next wife!”

Ouch? That couldn’t have been nice to hear for the usually cheerful Katy who was reported to be the more destroyed one during the divorce.

Do you think the joke was funny or was it a little too early for Russell to make ex-wife jokes?
