What am I going to tell my daughter about conformity and responsibility?For all his attempts to convince us otherwise, Russell Brand is not an idiot. " Perry did not get into specifics, but feel free to let your mind run wild.
It’s hard to say much about a young woman hell-bent on destroying herself, even when that young woman is supremely talented, but Brand manages to sketch out an affecting portrait: When I first met her around Camden she was just some twit in a pink satin jacket shuffling round bars with mutual friends, most of whom were in cool indie bands or peripheral Camden figures Withnail-ing their way through life on impotent charisma.
When Stern then said, "He's a better womanizer, then," Brand was forced to defend his well-documented lascivious ways."Hold on, I resent that! "Returning to the topic of Katy and John, Russell opted for diplomacy, while still making his feelings known."You have to let go of the instinct to protect someone once you divorce them," he said. Not so much playing the field, just going through life, meditating, doing yoga, concentrating on this TV show and trying to find a nice wife."As for rumors he's been linked to Demi Moore, Brand clarified that those were patently untrue."I really like her, she's a beautiful person.
Taking that as his cue (not that he needed one) to throw tact to the wind, Stern then launched into Russell's ill-fated marriage, telling him, "I knew you'd never stay married."So Katy has John—who does Russell have? I've not made love to her yet, Howard, but it's a matter of time.

They have about them the air of elsewhere, that they’re looking through you to somewhere else they’d rather be. The priority of any addict is to anaesthetise the pain of living to ease the passage of the day with some purchased relief. Celebrity addicts, Brand says, are a special case; they activate, through media obsession, all available circuits of admiration, envy, and schadenfreude.
