In an effort to dispel notions that Barack Obama is running for Celebrity in Chief and that his candidacy is messianic, wild haired British “comedian” Russel Brand ranted at the MTV Video Music Awards that people needed to vote for Barack Obama on behalf of the world, that President Bush is a retarded cowboy and that anyone not voting for Obama was a racist.
Reports were that Brittany Spears was in the audience looking horrifed. This is a woman who able to put on a happy face when K-Fed released a “rap” album, cavorted around at last years VMA’s in her underwear and sporting a beer belly, but this was too much for her. Think about that.
One wonders why a stand up comedian needs such an outrageous hair style, their act should be what draws attention, but Brand was quoted as saying: “My persona doesn’t really work without fame. Without fame, this haircut could be mistaken for mental illness.”
