Russell Brand's Sunset Blvd. Billboard Cruelly Vandalized
Someone in Los Angeles is not a fan of Russell Brand: The Sunset Blvd. billboard promoting his new show, "Brand X with Russell Brand," was vandalized by a white-marker wielding criminal, who scrawled across the bottom of the 'board: "I would rather watch the Katy Perry movie."
Of course, this might have something to do with the hordes of Perry fans that recently brought Hollywood and Highland to a complete standstill when the pop singer appeared to promote her new film, aptly titled "Katy Perry: Part of Me." No one can say for sure. But we bet that Brand is pretty upset over this. Pretty upset, indeed.
