Russell Brand Gets Mobbed By Fans At Berlin Airport

Russell Brand was greeted by a throng of eager fans upon arriving at Berlin Tegel Airport on Tuesday. The funnyman was in Germany for the Berlin stop on his Messiah Complex tour on Monday night. It seemed like the admirers couldn't get enough of the comedy rebel -- and neither can we!

We aren't sure if he was too busy to dry his hair -- or too busy to wash it (let's hope the former) -- but either way we are too busy loving his rapier-like wit to really care!

The 38-year-old has had a whirlwind week of travel! On Saturday, Brand and his girlfriend of over five months, Jemima Khan, arrived in Miami to spend a quick holiday in the colorful city. The duo was celebrating Khan's 40th birthday.

Over the weekend, the outspoken Brit caused some controversy when he wrote a piece on addiction following Philip Seymour Hoffman's heroin overdose. The recovered addict wrote in The Guardian Brand, "Philip Seymour Hoffman's death is a reminder, though, that addiction is indiscriminate. That it is sad, irrational and hard to understand."

    "What it also clearly demonstrates is that we are a culture that does not know how to treat its addicts. Would Hoffman have died if this disease were not so enmeshed in stigma? If we weren't invited to believe that people who suffer from addiction deserve to suffer? Would he have OD'd if drugs were regulated, controlled and professionally administered?"

He continued: "The troubling message behind Philip Seymour Hoffman's death, which we all feel without articulating, is that it was unnecessary and we know that something could be done. We also know what that something is and yet, for some traditional, prejudicial, stupid reason we don't do it."




Russell Brand Breaks The Law To Get His Sushi Fix

Rusty Rockets needs to read the signs!

Russell Brand ventured out to grab sushi in L.A. yesterday, and the comedian decided to park his Range Rover in a handicap space while he ran into the restaurant to pick up his order. Naughty naughty!

The comedian was spotted making out with a brunette mystery woman earlier this week at Urth Cafe in West Hollywood, so maybe he was in a rush to snag his California rolls and get back to his lady love?




Russell Brand Looks Smug As He Lands At LAX

Jun 27, 2013 11:05 AM

Russell Brand just exudes cheekiness.

The brash comedian was spotted looking smug and stylish at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday. He seemed to be in high spirits despite recently cancelling gigs in the Middle East for his new comedy tour after learning that his safety might be compromised. Russell was dressed in his usual ostentatious fashion in all its scarf, chest hair, and silk blazer glory.

The British comic was scheduled to perform his new show "Messiah Complex" in Abu Dhabi and Lebanon. The material covers figures including Malcolm X, Mahatma Gandhi, and Jesus. The Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor appeared on MSBC's Morning Joe a few weeks ago to promote the world tour, but instead made a fool out of host Mika Brzezinski and panelists Katty Kay and Brian Shactman.

Russell went on the defensive after Mika and her panelists referred to him in the third person ... in his presence. "You're talking about me as if I'm not here and as if I'm an alien," he said before schooling the journalists on their interviewing and news reporting skills. You don't want to mess with Russell.




Russell Brand Is A Guy In Grey At Jimmy Kimmel

Russell Brand arrived on-set at Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday, and the British funny man opted to wear an all grey ensemble for his talk show interview.

The Brand X host griped to Kimmel about the common misconception that he smells less than fresh.

"I'd like to emphasize this point if I may, Sir, using your television program: I'm very clean! People think for like some reason, possibly through some of my nocturnal habits, that I may be unhygienic. I am not. I'm very well groomed, and very immacuately clean and as Jimmy just verified, I smell nice," he joked.

Hopefully the conversation didn't segway off-camera into the Get Him To The Greek star's relationship with ex-wife Katy Perry, or John Mayer is going to be pissed!

Rumor has it the "Gravity" singer pulled the plug on his budding romance with the pop princess after growing tired of her close friendship with Rusty Rockets!

"John and Katy together were like a volcano just about to go off. Their relationship was incredibly volatile, stemming from the jealousy they both harbored deep inside. Sure, Katy was unhappy that John constantly flirted with other girls and played up his heartbreaker image, even when she was standing next to him. But Katy gave it back. She knew that she could push John's buttons by comparing his flaws to what she saw was great in Russell, which he hated!" sources claim in new reports.

We wonder if Mr. Brand knows that Johnny's not his biggest fan!

Russell Brand Lets His T-Shirt Do The Talking

Russell Brand attended an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Los Angeles on Monday afternoon, and while we're glad the British star is taking his sobriety seriously, don't you think his shirt is just a little bit inappropriate?

Rusty Rocket's tee-shirt says, "Security Checkpoint - breathalyzer test - BLOW HERE" with an arrow pointing straight down to his crotch. Sure, we get that he's a comedian, but is this really that funny? Not just because of the reference to booze, but given that he's also a sex addict, it's not exactly the nicest gesture towards the ladies.

Of course, girls are still probably lining up around the block for a shot with Katy Perry's hairy ex-hubby...

Russell Brand Is One Dedicated Yogi

Russell Brand arrived at his daily yoga session this morning in Hollywood, and the quirky comedian bundled up in sweats, a scarf and a beanie to brave the cold L.A. temperatures. We take it he doesn't practice Bikram!

The British funnyman's ex-wife Katy Perry is getting serious with her new beau John Mayer, but it seems Rusty Rockets might be moving on as well! After dating a bevy of beauties since his split from the "Fireworks" singer, it seems the Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor might be enjoying new romance with none other than Juliette Lewis!

Although the two attend the same yoga studio and have been pals for a while, rumors began circulating last week when the two were spotted embracing each other after their sweat session. We're dying to know if the speculation is true!

The dating world is so small in Hollywood! Mr. Mayer dated Jennifer Aniston before getting together with Katy, and Ms. Lewis dated Brad Pitt back in the '90's before he got together with Ms. Aniston.

Russell and Katy must be playing six degrees of Mr. Pitt!

Russell Brand Always Turns Heads With His Funky Yoga Fashion

Another day, another odd outfit!

Russell Brand headed to his yoga class in Los Angeles on Friday, and the British comedian wore a blazer, zippered sweatpants and a rather cozy looking pair of slippers. Not exactly what most guys would wear to yoga, but we're sure he's still getting plenty of attention from the ladies despite his goofy getup.

In other news, Brand is asking a judge to dismiss a negligence lawsuit filed against him by a photographer who claims Brand hit him with his car last January, resulting in several injuries. Victor Sneed filed the suit in October, and he's seeking money for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.

In court documents, Brand cites that any run-in was the result of the plaintiff's own negligence, and if he was hurt, it was the "direct, proximate and sole result" of his own "physical bodily condition and constitutional composition."

Brand also notes that Sneed "failed to take adequate measures to minimize...delays, damages, expenditures and extra costs, if any were incurred." Brand's legal team states that Sneed was employed at the time of the accident and entitled to worker's compensation in California, therefore their client shouldn't be held liable for any damages.

Russell Brand had the perfect remedy for combating the Thanksgiving bulge as he headed out to yoga class yesterday in L.A.

The 37-year-old comedian has been a committed yogi for some time now and it's good to see that the holidays haven't deterred him in any way. Guess Black Friday wasn't on his list!
