We Get It, Katy Perry -- You're Totally Over Russell Brand

katy perryKaty Perry really doesn't give an eff lately, does she? She's gone and dyed her hair all blue; she's insulting Beyonce; and now she's tweeting pictures of herself and her new boyfriend -- the world's highest paid male model: Zoolander. Baptiste Giabiconi.

Well, technically he tweeted the photo. But she posed for the pic, and clearly this was something that was done with her permission. You don't post a pic of Katy Perry (when she's your alleged girlfriend) without asking. Yeah, it's a cute pic and it's fine that she's moving on and all, but still ... way to be insensitive, Perry.

The ink on Katy and Russell Brand's divorce papers is barely dry and here she is flaunting her new relationship in his face. Yeah, yeah, he's dating some model, also, but it's a little different -- in that he isn't uploading photos of himself and said girlfriend to the Internet for all (including Katy) to see.

New relationships are exciting. I know. We want to talk about the person non-stop; we come up with silly, little reasons to bring their name up; and of course, now in the age of Facebook and Twitter, we want to post pictures of ourselves basking in the glow of new relationship bliss. That's fine. Have at it. But it's a little bit different when, you know, you just got a divorce. It isn't just insensitive, it's a little bit tacky.

The photo of Katy and Baptiste (who, yes, is ridiculously hot) basically says that she couldn't care less about the feelings of her ex-husband -- and that she's been over him for a long time.

If she wants to enjoy her time with her new man, by all means, have at it. But maybe skip the whole tweeting pictures things. At least until it's been a year or so. Sheesh.

Do you think it's rude to flaunt photos of new relationships when your last one didn't end that long ago?

No, I think you're being stupid. Love can come at any time, and just because some prissy pants might find it "tacky" doesn't mean she shouldn't be proud and show him off.

Makes you look jealous and snarky with your little "zoolander" comment. You seem extremely bitter, and petty

Not rude at all but makes her seem like she's not over him "look at the new hot bf I got!!" Either way, she don't look happy at all.

She looks miserable.

Why a year? Why not 10? Why not 20? 25?


Who says there has to a "time limit" on when its appropriate to move on to a new relationship and post pictures, talk about it, etc. If she's happy and she's moved on , and she wants to share it with the world then power to her. She shouldn't have to be judged by society and others for moving on to fast or to slowly. If she's happy and proud of her relationship she should and any other woman/man should be feel happy and content enough to shout it from the rooftops if they want too, without fear. An ex is an ex for a reason.

Ok so lets see if I have this right:

Russell has a new GF, he has been linked to more then one new girl (I'm pretty sure)

Katy DIDN'T post the pic to Twitter, but gave tacit approval (we assume)

The divorce is FINAL, so they have been apart at least 6 months. But somehow this is "Tacky" and "Insensitive"... Doesn't he have a new love in his life? So why should he care if she does as well? Its not like she would have been able to keep it super hush hush, AND just to save his feelings? Wasn't he the one who filed for divorce? Is he not aware that she is allowed to move on just as he is? I don't get why you seem so down on Katy on Russell's behalf... she waited until the "ink was dry" even if it is just barely dry, to date again, that is a respectful amount of time, IMO of course.

Didn't he have a new gf first?? Either way, they are divorced for a reason and should both move on.

I believe he filed for divorce, and how on earth was she dissing beyonce? Please reread what she said and then explain to me how it was an insult against beyonce...

Yeah,honestly she doesn't look thrilled. And besides, things move way faster in Hollywood time. Really though. Its no big deal.
