Russell Brand breezed through LAX security yesterday wearing a studded belt and wasn't even asked to remove it -- but the REAL breach of security here is what's going on just above the belt. Russell! Pull up your pants or do us all a favor and buy a razor (just don't put in in your carry-on)!

When we asked, Russell wouldn't dish on who he's rooting for in this summers' World Cup or if he's trying to jumpstart his singing career with a collaboration with Robbie Williams, but he did seem to share a laugh -- and a kiss -- with a man at the airport!
