Russell Brand posts bare-face photo of Katy Perry

Katy Perry probably wasn't laughing after funnyman hubby Russell Brand posted a makeup-free photo of her on Twitter. Shortly after it went up, the picture was taken down.

The close-up shot, which can be seen on the Daily Mail's website, features a bare-faced Perry looking like she has just woken up. While the colorful 26-year-old singer may not be wearing any makeup, she is sporting quite a look of surprise.

Though Perry has said that 35-year-old Brit Brand "makes me laugh like no one else," it's obvious she didn't find the humor in his sharing the less-than-flattering photo with his 1.6 million followers and demanded it be yanked.

The newlyweds, who exchanged vows in India in October, are currently in London for the holidays. Perry kicks off the European leg of her California Dreams tour in February.

    Reading comprehension is on the decline in the US and here obviously. This is not the picture sans make up.

    The article states the picture was posted on Twitter and then pulled.

    Quit making excuses for this guy. If you really love someone you don't embarass them especially on the internet where it will stay forever even after it has been taken off. She was not pretty in that picture and no one in their right mind would think so.

    He probably thought she looked pretty without all the makeup on and wanted to share how beautiful his wife is no matter what and isnt that a lyric in one of her sone "he thinks Im pretty without any makeup on"

    I don't give this marriage a long life. Only an idiot would put a photo like that on the internet. Katy is a beautiful girl and just like most models, does not look as good as she does with makeup. Most of us are in the same boat except for the idiot husband of course.

    She has no one to blame but herself, she is the one that picked this idiot to wed and now she is beginning to find out what type of character that he truly has.

    I bet there were real Fireworks in the bedroom when she realised what had happened with the photo.

    Great song, Fireworks, full of inspiriation. Now let's hear what she sounds like without the studio wand.

    Could be worse. He could have posted a pic of a different mwoman first thing in the morning. She should just post a pic of him without his makeup first thing in the morn to make it even. Or maybe without his pants (please?)

    When did the standard of beauty for women become based on perfect hair, makeup and clothes? Yet a man can slide out of bed with nothing more than brushed teeth and he's good to go. Ridiculous. I'm sure Katy is very pretty without a slathering of makeup. And if she's not, that's just perception based on the images we most often see of her.

    • simone says

      what you say has a lot of truth, BUT grooming is something that should transcend genders. he definitely always looks like he needs a good wash and trim. but most importantly, i wouldn't go near him because he really does have a crazy look in his eyes. i've always predicted re this couple that she is a sweetheart (not perfect or princess) and she thinks she can change and fix him. him? he's just stunned that such a lovely woman would be with him, so he's riding it for all it's worth.

      i see a lot more than a makeupless picture of a very pretty young woman: i see the face of shock that she has been betrayed by her new husband ... and that was just her response to waking up to having her picture taken. can you imagine how hurt and betrayed she felt after he tweeted it? that is just a huge betrayal. as her husband, he should respect her feelings. katy's been public about her fight with acne; also, she has a public persona that she puts on – which she has every right to do – and just like peewee herman or the Kiss guys, she has opted not to have current photos of herself out of character. his violation of that cuts across two things that would seem very important to her.

      i'm not saying people should divorce over something like this. i am saying that he has seriously betrayed her trust – and only 4 months into the marriage. about this marriage, i've predicted: either they will be happy forever because they're both quirky (well, he's insane; she's naive), or it will be over within 2 years. at this point , i'm going with (b) and shortening it to 6 months.

      Katy, i wish you happiness and that means a person who loves and respects you in the ways you want to be loved and respected.

      geez Simone, melodramatic much? I mean, I would be p*ssed at my husband for posting a pic of me like that, and make him take it down, but I would not consider it a "betrayal" of my marriage, for crying out loud. I would just think that sometimes my husband doesn't think things through. She married a comedian. He thinks things like this is funny. Get over it.

      One thing I will add is, it wouldn't be such a dang horror for her to be seen without makeup if she didn't insist on walking around everywhere so overly painted up. So of course anything less than appearing like a perfectly airbrushed photo is going to look bad....but that's her own fault.

      True and who cares.. just because they are stars has no effect on how they really look. We are all human... other than them affording to get nose jobs or boob jobs.. whatever.. haha.. she looks absolutely fine without makeup.

      Did you actually go to the Daily Mail website and look at the photo? She's not wearing any makeup there. And I would have kicked his butt for posting a picture of me like that. LOL

    Every woman looks different when she wakes up in the morning. The only way you look "perfect" in the morning is if you sleep with full make-up on.
