You know how Katy Perry's Part Of Me documentary showcased her and Russell Brand's deteriorating relationship, culminating in their divorce via text?
Well, apparently, Russell was making a documentary of his own at the exact same time called BRAND: A Second Coming which just premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival on Friday night… except he didn't attend!
After filming for seven years, the 39-year-old decided that seeing his marriage fall apart for a second time on-screen was just too much.
He shared a statement on his website apologizing to the film's director, Ondi Timoner, saying:
Some of you may remember Melanie Martinezfrom The Voice. Or perhaps you heard her on our Pop Up compilation! Or maybe you listened to hear song Carousel on the promo for American Horror Story last season!
She's so fresh and so dope! Yes, we really just said fresh and dope - cuz fleek needs a break!
We are hella excited (and in a throwback mode, ya dig?) to announce that Melaniewill be performing at our huge SXSW partythis Saturday at the Austin Music Hall.
Martinez joins a stellar and eclectic lineup of talent that also includes Tove Lo, The Ting Tings, Clear Bandit, Jess Glynne, Elle King and Ivy Levan!
