Some AMAZING news for all you Russell Brand fans this rainy Friday…he’s getting a new radio show!! Don’t know about you, but Russell’s old podcasts used to get me through my bus journeys in the morning and I was gutted when they came to an abrupt end (after the OTT ‘Sachsgate’ scandal) so this has cheered me up no end!

Russell’s new show will air on TalkSport on Saturday evenings for around 20 weeks, starting on the 9th of October (next week!). The show will also feature regular contributions from Brand’s pals Noel Gallagher and partner in crime Jonathan Ross. We can’t wait!!!!

In other Russell news, he posted a message on Twitter today confirming that he is going to be on Newsnight with Paxman….not sure exactly why, but we’ll be watching for sure!

Oh and finally – Booky Wook 2 is out now ( seem to have the best deal at the mo) and we’re off to see the accompanying tour on Monday night in Edinburgh – wahey!


Russell Brand Arrested at LA Airport

Russell Brand has been arrested following an incident at LA airport on Friday.  The comedian was on his way through security with his pop singer fiancee Katy Perry when some paps tried to stick a lens up Katy’s skirt.  A scuffle (love that word) then broke out when Brand shoved the pervy paps out the way, resulting in a citizens arrest being made and Russell was held until police arrived at the scene.

Katy Perry has commented on the incident on her Twitter page this morning:

“If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me. #standbyyourman #don’tfuckwiththeBrands”

Here at What’s The Dirt? we’re a big fan of both Russell* and Katy and think it’s quite sweet actually that he stood up for his woman like that – and having seen plenty examples of the US paparazzi crowds in action it’s no wonder he reacted the way he did – it’s quite frightening to watch!

Go Team Brand!

*in fact we’re going to see Russell’s Booky Wook 2 show in a few weeks time so please try to not get arrested again before then please….
