According to E! Online, Russell Brand will be this year’s host of the MTV Video Music Awards. If you’re like me, you probably have little to no idea who Russell Brand is… so I did a little digging and here’s what I found.
The Good: Brand, 33, has been a vegetarian since he was fourteen years old. And he practices yoga.
The Bad: He was a heroin addict, an alcoholic, and has been arrested more than 10 times. (He’s been sober since 2003 though).
The Ugly: He describes his flashy bohemian fashion sense as an “S&M Willy Wonka”.
Hmmmm, this should be an interesting live show! You’ll have to tune in on September 7th to see what this crazy Brit has in store.
[Editor's Note: Russell Brand was also the hilarious Aldous Snow in this year's comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. If you haven't already, please watch his character's music video called "Do Something". It's a very funny parody of a "Heal The World" type song.]
