Clearly, Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" was secretly written about their marriage.

Despite getting divorced in 2011, Russell Brand can't stop talking about Katy Perry. And not in the way the rest of us can't stop talking to her, which is all sunshine, rainbows, and whipped cream boobs.

The comedian opened up while filming the documentary, Brand: A Second Coming, saying that he found Perry to be vapid and mindless. He realized their lifestyles weren't compatible while doing charitable work in Africa.

"The stuff in Africa hit me really hard," he said. "I'm associated with the very thing I detest: vapid, vacuous, plastic, constructed, mindless celebrity. That's the very sea we're swimming in, 'Oh, who's he?'...'He's married to Katy Perry'."

To be fair(ish), Brand's quotes were filmed during the end of his marriage, and he reportedly isn't thrilled about the documentary. Meanwhile, Perry has taken a decidedly more mature approach to the situation: She spoke about her ex-husband to Vogue in 2013, saying "Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011."

Not to be overtly team Katy Perry, but 👀.
