Russell Brand Laughs Off Katy Perry Questions, Will Not Respond to Past Baby Rumors: Watch

4 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Days after Russell Brand poignantly replied, "I don't know who that is" at the mere mention of ex wife Katy Perry, the 39-year-old actor is spilling on his failed 14-month marriage.  "I would like to get married [again]," the Get Him to the Greek star said during his appearance on The Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday, reaffirming his past sentiments. "I was married before and I really liked it."  The English comedian and the 30-year-old pop star famously wed in a traditional Hindi ceremony in India surrounded by friends and family back in October 2010, and less than two years later, the two filed for divorce. Both Perry and Brand have since spoken out in public »

Russell Brand Takes on Justin Bieber & the Media in Exclusive Clip

24 November 2014 11:13 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If nothing else, Russell Brand is known for his brand of outlandish comedy that often provokes as much as it does create laughs.

In his latest comedy special, Messiah Complex, airing on Epix this Friday, Nov. 29, Brand takes on everything from immigration to Jesus Christ, and all things Justin Bieber.

When it comes to the singer, Brand pokes fun at the media frenzy he created when he said Bieber should try heroin.

“The top of the hit parade would look very different if teenyboppers were exposed to heroin,” Brand told Rolling Stone in 2010. “It would weed a lot of them out. I don’t think Justin Bieber could handle Syd Barrett from Pink Floyd’s habit. A lot of people in their journey to rehab overdose, and then, perhaps, we could be spared their awful music. It’s Darwinian. It’s the law »

He has a famous sibling. His hero does use a hammer. They knew! It's Chris Hemsworth! Chris did his Skype interview from Australia, where it was about 12:30 p.m. the next day. »

How Rich Are You? review an idiots guide to the economy, with cartoons

10 November 2014 11:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Richard Bacon played second fiddle to a barrage of rich and poor characters bouncing behind him on a big screen

With Griff Rhys Jones still fuming about the mansion tax and the whiff of half-arsed revolution in the air, this country must be more than ready for a serious debate on the rich/poor divide. So good on Channel 4 and their well-intentioned special, How Rich Are You? In less than 60 minutes, they hoped to offer an idiots (operative word) guide to the economy, where its gone wrong and how to fix it.

For much of the hour, presenter Richard Bacon played second fiddle to a barrage of cheeky yet unthreatening graphic avatars: light-hearted rich and poor characters bounced around behind him on a big screen, holding up boards displaying the shows title. A small, hairy cartoon not unlike Russell Brand squatted on the ground waving the word How, while »

10 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Keith Lemon is a very busy man at the moment - but somehow he still managed to find the time to write not one, but two books! Not only has he released his childhood memoir Little Keith Lemon, but he's also penned a safe-for-little-ones kids' book, The Beaver and the Elephant. To celebrate, we caught up with Keith ("I look worse than Kelly Brook in the morning," he complained) to chat about his books (and how Hugh Jackman inspired them), his new sketch show, why he regrets choosing a beaver for his book, Celebrity Juice and much, much, much more...

1. Keith on... why he wanted to write a childhood memoir

"Well, it's a prequel to the last book I did called Being Keith which is more about the TV years. This one's more about growing up in Leeds rather than telly gossip, whereas the last one was telly gossip. This »

Comic Book Review – Death Sentence Vol. 1

5 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Michelle Herbert reviews Death Sentence, Vol. 1…

Once active, the G+ Virus, sexually transmitted and lethal, gives you around six months to live, but in those six months you will gain powers beyond belief. Welcome to London, home to Verity, Weasel and Monty who have all been infected and are coming to terms with their death sentence in their own different ways.

Weasel is an underachiever who has managed to strike it lucky in the music world, even with his lack of talent; did he used to have talent or has he wasted it all on drugs? Monty on the other hand is a media icon, originally a comic he has become the charismatic leading man who is welcome wherever he goes. Monty is never satisfied by what he has achieved, he always wants more, it has to be bigger and better and yet he never feels fulfilled.
