Russell Brand’s hosting of the VMA’s has been the subject of considerable conversation. Except for his appearance in the movie “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” few Americans know who the British comic is. The puzzled audience kept asking each other “Who IS this guy?” And a lot of his jokes fell flat- he mocked the Jonas brothers “purity” rings and called our president a “retarded cowboy.” (Wasn’t the word “retarded” just banned in the US?) He urged everyone to vote for Obama and managed to turn off EVEN the people who agreed with him! Despite his lame attempts to be hip and timely, Russell did walk away far more famous than he was before, so it may pay off for him.

    FYI, Janet, the word “retarded” has not been banned in this country. I know it’s hard to believe after 8 years of this malevolent, civil-rights-crushing fake president, but we don’t ban words in the United States of America. Yet. Though I’m sure it’s on the McCain/Palin agenda.

    This guy is a moron. Why don’t people just admit it? He’s a has-been before he was ever a am-are.
    Kick his ugly butt back to the UK! He’s not entertaining – he’s just obnoxious. Man – Brit humor really sucks – maybe that’s why the Brits are so uptight.
    Oh yeah – last I checked, there is no status of “citizen of the world” or whatever corny thing he said.
    I hear he almost didn’t get into the US because passport problems with past drug convictions. They should have held him up and turned his sorry arse back to the UK.

    The British humor is much different than ours. However, George W. Bush IS a retarded cowboy. American humor can actually be more uptight. And his hair is a longer version of Kramer’s

    How come it was ok last year for that dumb female comedian (forgot her name) to make fun of Brit Brit but it’s not ok to make fun of those Jonas Brothers and their purity rings?

    Such an idiot, last time I checked no country in Europe has elected a black leader yet. Why isn’t he calling Europe racist.

    Seems like the entertainment industry loves putting down the country that affords them such lavish lifestyles, ungrateful bastards.

    The USA, best country in the world, nor does any country, afford these no talent ungrateful media whore their lavish lifestyles. It’s the mountains of money that the dopey celebrity worshipping fans spend on them that buy them everything.

    He DID suck the BIG ONE!!! BOR-I-N-G!!! I was soooo bored with his overly lame attempts at “humor” that I gave up and mostly turned the channel, trying to turn it back to catch the rest of the show without the “bits” with him on. What a colossal ASS!!! And that stupid hair-do has GOT to GO…ratted up crap on the back of his head like he just got out of bed after a 20 year sleep and never washed or brushed it…wonder how many filthy British rats make their home in that rats nest?

    This twiglet and marmite eating fool needs to hop on the next flight across the pond. (I did enjoy his slaying of the Jonas brothers though)

    He was a wannabe. He tried so hard. When people have no talent they try to be outrageous. Anyone can do it.

    He wasnt bad at all, he was much better than some of the big names that have hosted in the past and it didnt have that uncomfortable and hateful undercurrent like when Sarah Silverman hosted, so he made one offensive joke about the Jonas Brothers but it wasnt so bad, I thought he did good

    No one should bad mouth our president in PUBLIC no matter how much you hate him you do all that in the privacy of your home. Entertainers seem to do it all the time here and abroad, so guys like this one come here and do the same thing to blend in with the same people he hears bashing the US in his country. It’s wrong and disrespectful to everyone here. I don’t care who’s elected, it should be the same for all leaders. That’s why our country’s going to hell because we don’t show any respect to anyone anymore.

    There’s this little thing in this country called The Constitution that allows us the right of free speech and if our elected officials were doing their job they wouldn’t be spoken of negatively

    To 9:24 am: You may be right that the country is going to hell, but if it is that’s because the citizens don’t even bother to inform themselves of their rights, let alone defend them. You are free to act like a mute sheep, but real patriots speak out. The rest of us value the constituonally guaranteed right to free speech, and the rest of our rights, too. Paige is right. If public officials were not so laughable, especially the “president,” we wouldn’t laugh at them so much. DISSENT IS PATRIOTIC.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
