i kept trying to think of the reasons for why he was a good choice for mtv. i thought, yeah he's a fast talker, he's constantly just rambling shit. okay so he can think of lots to say. ummmm. okay, his humor sucked, and at times, flat out fucking offensive. and his voice, no offense to brits, was seriously annoying. he looked like a fuckin crackhead, sorry dude, but that whole "im crazy wild guy look" doesn't fly in america anymore, you just look like a fucking hobo. and whether you support bush or not, or support obama or not, i think we all can agree that shit was offense. he's not american, so he has no business preaching to an american audience about his extremely biased views on politics at a music awards show, wrong place, and wrong time!  and i thought it was fucked up making fun of jonas brothers and others in attendance, even though im no fan of jonas brother, he just was a low blow. does he even know they are a pop band geared towards children? i thought he ruined the awards, everything was very entertaining till he opened his mouth. why did he always sound like he was shouting random shit?!?!

And when aren't they? I mean this is the VMA's its been annoying blather since the start.

#5 Posted by Lemegeton (812 posts) -

good fuck no. Not Russell Brand , those award shows are a pile of shit at the best of times but with him its definitely a shit-storm. He is a Grade A Prick and talentness fuckwit.
i cannot understand for the life of me why the Brits love him so much.

Um..its MTV, they could care a less about who they pick for anything, or who likes andoesn't like them. This should of been obvious for the mast 7 or 8 years now. Anything on that channel is garbage.

no i actually thought the vma's were entertaining for the most part, just whenever his face popped up i got this dreadful feeling, like, ugh here we go again! but i liked some of the performances like how they were using the studio to make on the spot music videos. 

they had guys like Jack Black before, he was great, and so was Chris Rock. 

but this guy has such a massive fucking ego it was disgusting. and he reallllly thought his fucking opinions on anything mattered to anyone it made me sick. like dude, who do you think you are John fuckin Lennon!? he's not even close to being in the same league. he needs to never host anything ever again. i didnt laugh once at anything he said or did

everytime he came on i couldnt comprehend anything, its just him shouting and blurting AHABLLAHBALAAHHHAAAABLABLABLABABABABAHHHHHHHIM ENGLISH AABABABABABABLLLAAAHHH*INSERT OFFENSIVE REMARKS HERE* AHHHBLLAAAHHHBLAAHH

the bit where he tried to be cool with ll cool j, and ll went along with it, was just aweful. 

i was hoping kid rock would smash the glass he was holding over his head.

He's a pretty clever guy, though his comedic style is abrasive, to be sure.

But since your main complaints come from your attempt at being a fashion czar and a true idiotic patriot who thinks only Americans can talk about American politics, I'm siding with the guy from the homeland I'm afraid.  He's from Britain, doesn't  follow your arbitrary rules and he's an individual - OH SHIT!  BURN THE WITCH!  Give me a break.

I'm wondering why someone is watching MTV in the first place...

Dam you Americans love the sound of your own accents dont ya.

#13 Posted by MagusMaleficus (1077 posts) -

Why are we still talking about MTV in 2008? Didn't MTV lose its legitimacy in, oh, 1989?

#14 Posted by SoyBob (178 posts) -

On his own, I can't stand him. He's on English TV quite a lot, and I don't find him personally funny. However, he was on a show teamed up with Noel Fielding and he can actually be really funny at times.

He is an absolute cock though.

no i meant that since he isn't even american he shouldnt be preaching to an american audience about politics AT A VIDEO MUSIC AWARD SHOW!
and dude, you obviously found something odd to like about the guy. other than his political views, which i might have agreed with if it wasn't at a fuckin music show , he was trying to be funny and failing miserably, for real, his humor sucked. not that clever either. he just uses lots of adjectives and run on sentences.

dude i would have loved someone like     Simon Pegg. has nothing to do with accents. your either out of line, not funny, and straight up annoyin, or your cool, funny, in line, and appropriate. he tried turning it into a legitament speach on politics, O)O the world needs you to vote for obama?! WTF? play some music already ya douche

Russell Brand is awesome, but I haven't watched the so called "VMA's". My best advice... Don't watch the VMA's.

#18 Posted by duxup (372 posts) -

What are you doing watching the VMAs?

#19 Posted by Bennyishere (1746 posts) -

My question is... Who the fuck is Russel Brand? I have not seen that person before in my life.

Woah
You guys should be ashame for watching that crap....heck all MTV related is crap (execpt for rock band )

#24 Posted by Christopper (127 posts) -

Im going to go against the grain on this one, if you listen to one of his BBC podcasts it may change your mind. He did mention he was pretty nervous about doing the VMA's and that he may offend as Americans get...well...offended easily.

To be honest, I feel he was holding back from his normal stuff and it's not like he does award shows all the time.

So for someone who has seen Russell Brand live, I say dont judge him on this appearance as it's not his usual environment.

I'm surprised anyone even watched the VMA's lol.

just because he admitted before hand he might offend people doesn't change the fact that he seriously offended people. 
o and, uh poor baby, he was nervous. boo...hoo ;-(

Yeah he was nervous, wouldn't you be?

The guy's always had an offensive sense of humour, he once got fired from MTV because he turned up dressed as Osama Bin Laden right after the 9/11 travesty. He has a philosophy on life which contradicts the norm, not everything that bad happens has to mean everyone turns suicidal, you have to laugh at it. This doesn't mean he is being offensive, he just has a different way of dealing with issues which is staying happy. What's so wrong with that?

Also, he didn't just walk on stage that day out of the blue. MTV hired him (The same MTV that sacked him), so they knew what he was like. Maybe they are to blame?

What's wrong with his teeth? Or is that just a racial slur?

He certainly gets his fair share of woman so they cant be that bad.
