Russell Brand Defends His Wife's Product-Placement Tweets

Maybe this will finally put the situation to rest.

Last week, there was a stir when Katy Perry made some comments about product-placement in music videos that were misconstrued as insults directed at Britney Spears and her latest video for Hold It Against Me.

While attending the Oscars last night, Russell Brand was asked what he thought of the issue and like a dutifully hubby, he defended his wife's honor, saying:

"I think those things are made up in the papers and the media to distract people from our spirituality and the truth, and it distracts us from the way the economic situation of the world keeps certain people trapped on this plateau. Let's all rise up and join together. Unite!"

Quite true, but you can't deny that the timing of her comments and the release of Brit-Brit's video is pretty questionable.

Still, he has a point. More important things to worry about. Let's let bygones be bygones with this, huh!

    GRAMMAR!! "dutiful hubby" not "dutifully."



  2. 2

    When they make a biopic of Charles Manson, Russell Brand will need no make-up.



  3. 3

    Katy Perry was talking about Gaga actually.

    It's obvious Katy can't stand Marilyn Manson's twin brother Gaga.

    Im sure Britney doesn't care about whether Katy was talking about Britney or not because Britney is a legend… Legends can care less.

    Does anyone remember Perry yelling "We're talking about ZITS here people" in her old proactive commercials??!! It's was classic!! HAHA, they've since edited it and replaced it with her talking into a shoe as if it's a phone!! Google Search keywords "The Media Jerk" to read Heartless criticism of the day's biggest celebrity news stories!!

    Wow… that comment from Russell was so right on. Katy Perry may sometimes sell out, but who doesn't in order to gain more control of their career in order to make better videos and get your message out there. Product placement doesn't downplay the talent she or anyone else has who uses that vehicle - I've seen her live, bitch can sing! I think underneath all the showbiz bullshit she's a good person, who like GaGa, understands how to keep our attention in addition to what's really happening in the world we live in. Again, Russell was right on - we are decidedly being distracted by the media, etc.

    I just realized - its impossible for me to read a Russell Brand quote without reading it in his voice and with his mannerisms :P

    His jokes constantly interfere with work on my higher ascention vibration. How on earth can I rise up together if I'm laughing?

    Katy Perry always makes some smart ass comment and then has to backtrack. I believe she's just pressed she'll never be as famous as Britney nor Gaga. How lame you have to have your husband defend you on something like this. Really pathetic.

    Re: JCPiscool – So if your partner gets backed into some faux corner, you're going to let them defend themselves? Nice. Russell's good on this.

    Re: JCPiscool – I agree she should keep her mouth shut about some things…it doesn't make her look good. I don't really understand this whole issue…it just seems like a petty non-issue at this point so I can't comment on what Russell said cuz he doesn't really make sense here to me. I agree that the media is quite warped though. He's so weird looking by the way but he's sure hilarious :)

    Omg please either stop posting pictures of him or just post a link with the "if you are offended easily don't click here" thing. He is just so god damn ugly I think I almost threw up from seeing that picture. I can't believe she's still married to this greasy loser

    A bunch of talentless people talking about other talentless people. When Perry is in the game for a decade then she can criticize Britney. Otherwise, let her stick to her looking like a tacky bedazzled banana split.



  14. 14

    Well it's true anyway, doesn't Britney have enough freakin' money without 18 shots of SONY in her video?

    Re: Miss Mac – I know what u mean…me 2 lol

    I think its just sad how ONE tweet caused this much commotion. Since when can't people have an opinion??

    His face gives me nightmares.
