Over the weekend, Russell Brand was deported from Japan. Surprisingly not because he’s annoying but because of his much publicized past drug offenses. Japan doesn’t take kindly to people with a criminal record. Russell and Katy Perry were there for the Japan leg of her tour.
“So… my husband just got deported from Japan,” Katy Perry wrote on Twitter. “I am so sad. I brought him all this way to show him my favorite place. Tokyo dreams crushed.”
So why was Brand taken into custody and subsequently kicked out of the country? “It was for priors from over 10 years ago!” Perry, 26, explained
“Planning escape from Japanese custody,” the Get Him to the Greek star quipped. “It’s bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick.”
“Stockholm syndrome [is] kicking in,” he added. “Just asked my guard out for (vegetarian) sushi. He giggled.”
Perry added: “But of course I love my Japanese fans and the show must go on, no matter the daily aftershocks or husband kidnappings! It’s not right but it’s okay.”
The Japanese are so polite that I bet they said it in such a nice way like, “Sorry for the inconvenience, but we request that you leave our country.” And no one will ever argue with them because everyone knows that behind the polite demeanor, any resistance will be met with tentacle rape.
