The former Mr. Katy Perry, Russell Brand, was kicked out of the GQ Men of the Year Awards for gettin all political.I didn’t even know GQ had awards. I thought they just printed ads with homosexual models wearing overpriced clothes. Instead of just thanking his fans and GQ like an adult, he decided to do the annoying celeb thing and talk politics. Since he also insulted GQ, he was promptly kicked out.
“Glad to grace the stage where Boris Johnson had just made light of the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Meaning that GQ could now stand for Genocide quips. I mention that only to make this next comment a bit lighter because if any of you know a little about history, and fashion, you know it was Hugo Boss who made uniforms for the Nazis.”
What’s happening in Syria is fucking horrible and Assad and probably 10,000 other idiots deserve a bazooka to the face, but is it really Russell Brand’s job to tell us about it. Was the world waiting on input from the guy who was funny once in Forgetting Sarah Marshall ? Why do famous people think we give two shits what they think of political situation? They’re violating the basic celebrity social contract. For relatively minimal work, you get lots of money and hot girls and good drugs. We get your silence outside of work.
