Russell Brand Deported From Japan

Katy Perry was excited to bring husband Russell Brand to Japan to see her perform, but this weekend, Brand was detained by authorities and deported, a development that caused Perry to go into a hashtag-abusing rage state on Twitter. "It was for priors from over 10 years ago! #mamanothappy! #don'tmessw/mahman! #uwannaplaylet'sgo #don'ttakeawomansmanfromhershe'llgetshiasty!" she tweeted. " ... But of COURSE I [love] my Japanese fans & the show #MUSTGOON no matter the daily aftershocks or husband kidnappings! #it'snotrightbutit'sokay." Brand seemed to take the news a bit better, tweeting a self-pic alongside the note, "Planning escape from Japanese custody. It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick," then finding an appreciative audience in his captors: "Stockholm syndrome kicking in. Just asked my guard out for (vegetarian) sushi. He giggled."
