Just interested to read people's opinions on Russell Brand.
As ya'll may or may not be aware old Brandy has been getting quite political and involving himself with various social causes over the past year or so, also releasing his book 'Revolution'.
Interested to know what you all think, as he seems to be stirring up debate and divinding opinions (lol Daily Mail) in the general community. Do you actually buy into the hype and believe that he genuinely believes in and practices what he preaches?
Or that he's just some hypocritical champagne swilling socialist cynically contriving this whole situation for his own benefit and that in 18 months time we'll see him as the leading actor in 'Get Him to the Greek II'.
Or just indifferent and not really arsed about the guy and this thread will just fade away into obscurity?
Personally I do believe that what he is doing is genuine and not just some publicity stunt designed to show off that he can be a multi faceted performing artist, a la 'I'm Still Here'.
Call me naive or whatever, but I like the idea that old Brandy is showing genuine concern for these causes and has the passion to fight for them.
I guess he'll always be judged in the context of his past and the fact that he's loaded which means to some people he's just a self inflated rambling hypocrite.
