Russell Brand To Host VMAs Again

Russell Brand To Host VMAs Again

Russell Brand will once again host the MTV Video Music Awards. The ceremony will take place at NYC’s Madison Square Garden in September and will have a West Side Story theme.

A pal of the 34-year-old British comedian tells The Sun: “He is over the moon. It’s the first time ever that the same host has been used for two consecutive years, which means a lot to him. He has had to promise not to offend the Jonas Brothers again though.”

Love You Russell.

# 2

why? he was bad the first time.

# 3

Totally up for that! Loved last year’s show.. so funny XD He is so hilarious.. love him :)

# 4

That’s great news!!!! I loved him last year and have become a fan ever since!

# 5

I’m not surprised he’s been asked to do it again, despite any “controversy” last time. He is a good man at heart and he deflects bad karma. Look how his career has been blossoming post all that Sachsgate nonsense. He’s an extremely competent stage perfomer, I’ve seen him live twice. Well done Russ.

Is he going to let robert pattinson talk this time? hahaha

# 7

Boo! He is funny. But the show has been going down hill for years. They need something fresh and fun.

# 8

why ask him back, he was horrible the first time?

HAHAHA russel brand dissing the jonas brothers, yet again!

i bet he’s going to talk about the not dissing the jonas thing at the show

@keggers: oh yes he was!! take someone funny!

Why? Why? Why???
I did not like him as host last year and I am not going to like him this year.
I thought it was pretty low and stupid to diss the Jonas Brothers last year. It made me so mad!!!
At least this year he cant diss them, but I am sure he will talk about how he cant diss them.

I do not like this man at all. Not only because he dissed the Jonas Brothers but because something about him I just dont like

Not him again…

OH no not this scarecrow again.

Oh god. Not him again. *sigh* I’ll have to pretend Brand isn’t there or something. I’ll watch this year’s VMAs only for an MJ tribute.

This is great news. He is nuts, but I love him anyway.

what the hell? he was horrible last year. i didnt even laugh at anything he said. if anything he was funny looking; ugh

he is not funny. MTV is losing it. the people should vote who should be the next host.

ew, he wasnt even good and he offended too many people and made it akward. I hope they lose a ton of ratings because of this.


Boo! He was definitely not funny last year.

good good. meants i’ll watch again this year. go on russell with your diction and insults. love it.
