Russell Brand opens up about 'amazing' Katy Perry and their marriage. Does he want her back?

It’s the reunion we’ve all been praying for – and until now it had been utterly hopeless. But if Russell Brand‘s recent interview is anything to go by, he could be trying to win back ex-wife Katy Perry. Eek!

This week, when asked about his marriage to the 29-year-old pop-star, Russell said: ‘I really enjoyed it. Katy Perry is an amazing person.’

The romance had been a whirlwind. They met in 2009, got engaged the same year and married in 2010 in a traditional Hindu ceremony in Rajasthan.

At the time Russell opened up about newlywed life, saying: ‘My life used to be much more about chaos, glass, blood, madness, but now it’s, “go and get that fridge.”‘

Katy Perry seemed to have tamed Russell and we all were enthralled with their strange but happy matching.

So when the couple divorced after 14 months of marriage, in December 2011, the world was left stunned.

Earlier this year, Katy revealed that she found the split ’emotionally traumatic’:

‘It was the death of a dream. I was in the fairy land, and the reality of it wasn’t so. But I don’t really like talking about it anymore because it feels like a thousand lifetimes ago, and also it makes me look desperate, like I need it for attention.’

And although both celebs have moved on since – Russell dating socialite Jemima Khan before she reportedly dumped him last month; and Katy dating John Mayer on and off from 2012 until earlier this year, with the pop star now rumoured to be seeing DJ Diplo – the world (well, us, anyway) was always secretly hoping that the oddly well-suited couple would somehow reconcile.

Is Russell‘s comment on the ‘amazing’ Katy Perry a sign that he’s missing the pop princess? Does he want her back? Will they ever get back together?

OH MY GOD, we don’t know. But we certainly know what we want to happen. Keep up the charm, Brand!
