LONDON - Singer Katy Perry has convinced husband Russell Brand to cut down on his offensive jokes.
“Russell has made very blasphemous jokes in the past, but he’s making fewer all the time because he knows that I am very sensitive about this subject,” telegraph.co.uk quoted Perry, whose parents were pastors, as saying.
“You can be frivolous and fun without needing to get involved in that. And I don’t know why that only happens to the Christian religion. I don’t see people simulating sex with statues of Buddha, for example,” she added.
Brand, 35, was suspended by the BBC after he and Jonathan Ross left obscene messages on the answerphone of Andrew Sachs, 80, the star of “Fawlty Towers”.
The next year, Brand declared that he would never tone down his material. “I ain’t afraid, I don’t give a ****,” he said. “I will not lose my edge.”
