Russell Brand hits America at VMA Awards

Brand must have been chosen to host as he would have been controversial to the unhip part of America and cheaper than Sacha Baron Cohen. Upsetting the establishment and causing outrage – how very rock and roll!

Here are some memorable quotes from the MTV music video awards, though there are others which referred to the Jonas Brothers as god’s favourite virgins and their promise rings (note not been able to track down the supposedly unprintable jokes so if anyone has them please comment):

On Palin: “That is the safe sex message of all time. Use a condom or become a Republican!”

Spears: “Consider this the resurrection of Britney Spears, If there was a female Christ, it’s Britney.”

Obama and Bush: “As a representative of the global community, a visitor from abroad, I don’t want to come across a little bit biased, but could I please ask of you, people of America, please elect Barack Obama, please, on behalf of the world. Some people, I think they’re called racists, say America is not ready for a black president. But I know America to be a forward thinking country because otherwise why would you have let that retard and cowboy fella be president for eight years. We were very impressed. We thought it was nice of you to let him have a go, because, in England, he wouldn’t be trusted with a pair of scissors.”

    Russell Brand is an idiot. Not very smart to come to a country where nobody knows you and insult half the country. He wasn’t just insulting bush. He insulted John McCain, Sarah Palin and the entire republican party. Isn’t Russell Brand the one who mocked America the day after 9/11? Maybe Obama should have made him his VP.

  2. promise rings are very memorable to me because i gave a promise ring to my girlfriend who became my wife after a year ::
