British comedian Russell Brand is claiming that MTV has asked him back to host next year’s Video Music Awards (VMA).
Brand told the Sun newspaper: “MTV told me that they want me to do it again. Afterwards they were really thrilled. There was a 20 per cent increase in viewers from last year’s show and wow, isn’t life exciting.”
Well Russell we will see if they actually have you back or not. I think after the huge firestorm of backlash that your over-the-line jokes/comments made that MTV will be reconsidering offering you another shot. So unless you have a signed contract I wouldn’t count that egg before it hatches.
Brand did say that MTV nixed several of his jokes that were about McCain and another of Palin putting her daughter in the electric chair.
He said: “I had John McCain gags pulled. And they asked me to tone down the gags about Sarah Palin. I wanted to say she was forcing her teenage daughter to have a baby because she is so anti-abortion.
“But also, as a Republican she is pro-execution so she is going to give her the electric chair for being a little slut.
“They weren’t keen on that one.”
England you should be proud!
