Russell Brand is gutted that he hasn't been invited to Morrissey's 50th birthday party, while fellow TV personality Jonathan Ross has.
Ross used (Twitter) to boast about getting an invite to the party. "Sorry to shout but... I JUST GOT INVITED TO MORRISSEY'S 50TH BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!!!!!! Need to choose outfit immediately :)" he wrote on Wednesday (April 29). Brand, who named his cat after the singer, is still waiting for his invitation, according to reports. Morrissey's birthday is on May 22 (Daily Star).
