The fairy tale marriage of Katy Perry and Russell Brand is over, fourteen months after it began.  Katy and Russell join the ranks of celebrities whose wedding nuptials were . . . temporary.  Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries lasted only 72 days.  Britney Spears and Jason Alexander lasted two.

We’ve all heard a jumble of less-than-educated guesses as to why many celebrity relationships don’t last: “They spend too much time apart.”  “They have intimate scenes with other people.”  “They’re too obsessed with themselves.”  “They only care about fame.”  But what are the real reasons for so many celebrity break-ups?

Sad news about one of Hollywood’s hottest couples–Russell Brand has filed for divorce from wife Katy Perry.  The news about the break-up does not come as a complete surprise.  Celebrity gossip columnists have been buzzing about a rift between pop music princess Katy Perry and her actor/comedian hubby Russell Brand.  Married for just 14 months, the often lovey-dovey pair reportedly spent this past Christmas miles apart (two-thousand miles to be exact).  Photos showed Perry splashing around on a Hawaiian beach (without her wedding ring), while Brand was also snapped on a beach– in Cornwall, England– sans Perry.

What broke this celeb couple up?  We may never know for sure, but Us Weekly recently reported that Brand’s lack of respect for Perry’s parents’ Christian beliefs as the cause of some tension.

If that’s the case– the problems of this glamourous newlywed couple are quite common.

There are plenty of pairings that just make sense: peanut butter and jelly; flip-flops and the beach; bright red lipstick and that little black dress, to name a few.  That’s not to say that unexpected matches don’t make their mark: bacon and chocolate (seriously); navy and black; cowboy boots in the summertime.

This idea holds true for relationships, too.  Sometimes, a couple just seems right, and other times, it takes a bit more convincing to understand why they’re a good fit.  If nothing else, the celebrity couples below prove that love can pop up in the most unexpected places and that opposites do attract.  As for bacon and chocolate, the jury is still out.

There are so many fun factors about Halloween.  First, there are the pumpkins: pumpkin carving, pumpkin patches, pumpkin pie — and an annual viewing of the TV show, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.  Next, you can’t forget candy, like Brach’s candy corn, which are only available seasonally in the autumn, making them a particularly delicious and coveted treat.  Then, there’s all that scary stuff: haunted houses, witches, goblins and ghouls — boo!  And finally, perhaps the best part is the costumes – for one day out of the year, you get to be anyone you want to be, celebrities included.

For anyone looking for a little romance on a holiday that’s typically filled with fright, you’re in luck!  Here’s a list of celebrity couples whose looks can be transformed into costumes. One of them may be the perfect fit for you and your partner.

From Britney Spears to Nicki Minaj, this year’s MTV Video Music Award (VMA) nominees are teeming with A-list music stars.  The three top contenders include Katy Perry, with nine nods (the most of any performer this year), and Adele and Kanye West, both with seven nominations each.  While it will be exciting to see which stars take home a trophy for their designated categories, we’re also eager to see which of our favorite celebrity couples will attend.  Although we won’t know for sure who will show up to the VMAs until Sunday, Aug. 28, here are five celebrity couples we hope make an appearance:

1. Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z: Listed as the “most powerful couple” for TIME magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” in 2006, the duo dated for six years before secretly getting married in 2008.  OK Magazine reported that “the couple is very supportive of one another — making sure to attend performances and appearances together.”  That means we can definitely count on them to arrive together, since Beyoncé is up for a nomination, right?

Almost everyone has a song that reminds them of summer.  Whether it’s a tune you jam to in the car, or a melody repeating on your IPod, summer anthems represent a piece of who you are and how you think, particularly when it comes to love. That’s why we’ve taken a look at this summer’s hottest hits and analyzed what we think they mean about your relationship style.  Check out what we’ve come up with below:

1.‘If I Die Young’ by The Band Perry: If you crank up the volume when this song starts playing, then you’re probably a hopeless romantic. After all, what’s more heart-warming than lyrics like “send me away to the words of a love song,” or “I’ve never known the loving of a man, but it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand.” Even if you haven’t found that special someone this summer, liking this tune shows you still have hope for love, and that you’re ready to find the person who will make you feel special.

After tying the knot in what has been a detailed four-day wedding celebration in India, Katy Perry still can’t stop talking about her husband, Russell Brand.  Despite the provocative teasing good-girl image Katy Perry maintains in the public eye, she tells Harper’s Bazaar, “I always knew I wanted a great man of God.  Someone who was going to be an inspiration for people and also be a lovely husband and father.”  Wait, are we still talking about Russell Brand?  Apparently so.  Us Weekly reports that Brand is a “deeply spiritual man and ideal dad material.”  And what about the 10-year age gap?  Katy Perry explains, “We’re at different places in our lives, but we can still grow together.”  With a man that’s “though-provoking, articulate [and] a real advocate,” it looks like clear sailing for the newlywed couple — with a few laughs along the way.

While singer Katy Perry and comedian Russel Brand’s wedding may have been all about “no regrets, just love” — for neighbors not in attendance, it was anything but a “teenage dream.”  The couple’s wedding at the Aman-i-Khas hotel in Rajasthan, India, last week was loud enough to draw noise complaints.  The hotel, which is located next to a sacred tiger sanctuary, has been charged with violating the district’s laws against loud music after 10 p.m.  Perry and Brand, who were free from any charges, have headed to the Maldives for their honeymoon, but managers of the hotel could face fines or jail time.

Katy Perry is enjoying her final days as a single woman.  Following her performance on Britain’s The X-Factor, Perry and fiancé Russell Brand talked to judge Simon Cowell backstage.   A source tells Us Magazine, “She had so much fun with Simon, and Russell was chatting with him too.  Katy was hugging Russell a lot after her performance.  She kept asking him, ‘Was I OK?’ ‘Was it OK?’, but he was nothing but supportive.  He was stroking her bum in her catsuit.  He couldn’t keep his hands off her, actually.”  The engaged pair also went to a private screening of The Social Network on Monday.  On Tuesday, Perry and Brand intend to fly to India for their extravagant 6-day wedding celebration.  The few guests, including Rihanna, will stay in “pimped out” tents and are to be flown in on private jets.  Despite the extravagance,  Brand seemed uneager to talk about the celebration.  “I’m trying to preserve it, to keep it a beautiful thing,” Brand explained.  “I think people get the wrong idea on how we want the wedding to play out.  Love between two people is the most spectacular yet ordinary thing in the world.”
