Katy cracked a joke about having to get married again, which prompted a very confused Ellen to say, "You weren't married!" The "Bon Appétit" singer awkwardly reminded her that yes, she was married to Russell Brand when she was 25 before he filed for divorce in 2011. "It's been a long time, honey," Katy joked. "No wrinkles, no lines!" What a time to be alive.
