Urban Yogis - Russell Brand on Addiction and Yoga

  • Definitely read that and it was really powerful. Russell is a lot more intelligent and conscious than many people give him credit for.

  • proud of you Russell. he is just like all of the hippies that I grew up with. most all have/had a heart. just like most I've known, he over did it in every way . the fact that he can admit his male pigheadedness and was able to overcome becoming his own victim while reaching out to others does say alot for his recovery efforts. he's not completely stupid or ignorant. he'll be typecast forever until another cataclysmic occurance in the milkyway projects him higher into an atmosphere where he'll become the brightest burning star to shine a light on Hollywood hot enough to shock the termites into another dimension.

    Deanna Stevens // 2013-06-10 10:59:21 // //
  • I just watched all of these interviews and Russell is an articulate and honest man, I admire him for admitting his past vices and moving forward in his life with spirituality and yoga. It sounds as though some of the commentators on here would benefit from a little meditation and showing kindness to others.

    Trish Thompson // 2013-06-10 05:55:31 // //
  • Russell wrote an insightful piece on addiction in one of the British papers (the Guardian or The Independent) after his friend Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning.

  • Mrs(?) Hodsall-Hewitt(improbable) seems to have an unhealthy fixation not only on Mr Brand but also ebenophilia(all this talk of "grooming"), anal sex, double penetration and some weird cuckolding variant involving younger sisters. Goddamn, now I gave myself a boner.

  • Even the magicians performed miracle like God in the book of Exodus, but only Jesus gives us freedom and leads us to Heaven through His sacrifice and resurrection. Jesus Christ took me out of darkness of false religion and yoga, and drugs and all kinds of sins, His blood cleanses us. Repent and receive His comfort through the Holy Spirit and allow Him to take all your pain away. Jesus is the ultimate expression of God`s love and the only mediator between God and man thus leading us to heaven.

  • I`m pretty sure you are the disgusting, vile judgemental creep for making up such rubbish; he is the most unjudgemental person you could possibly wish to meet. Yes, he has made mistakes in the past but guess what, so have you. Don`t act like you don`t. I don`t care for rap music but you don`t see me sprouting crap about them on their music videos.

  • THREE CLIPS OF A NARCISSISTIC SOCIOPATH AND PSYCHOPATH. HE FUCKS YOUNG GIRLS, BREAKS PROMISES AND CAUSES PEOPLE DISEASE DEPRESSION...HE EXPLOITS YOUNG GIRLS AND WOMEN

    Jane Hodsall-Hewitt
    // 2013-05-17 20:20:52 // //
  • RUSSELL BRAND IS A NARCISSISTIC SOCIOPATH, PREDATORY PERVERT AND PSYCHOPATH. YOU ARE A FOOL. FOR EVIL TO FLOURISH...GOOD PEOPLE STAND BY AND DO NOTHING (YOU GUYS LAUGH AT THIS CREEP AND GIVE PERMISSION TO HIS ANIMALISTIC PREDATORY WAYS)

    Jane Hodsall-Hewitt
    // 2013-05-17 20:19:22 // //
  • Its so hilarious the 1,000+ girls and women he gave STD`s to and made them feel used...yeah that`s yoga

    Jane Hodsall-Hewitt
    // 2013-05-17 20:17:12 // //
  • Russell Brand grooms young girls and women, makes them promises and then has sexual favours and intercourse with them then discards and deletes them from his life. You should be ashamed of yourself supporting this monster. He has abused a young girl I know and she`s in therapy. He is a vile predator. Its not funny its not comedy its real. He is a grown man who does evil in this world

    Jane Hodsall-Hewitt
    // 2013-05-17 20:15:39 // //
  • Its also a shame that he fucks young girls up their assholes and then discards them like trash...OH BUT AT LEAST THE CUNT DOES YOGA!!

    Jane Hodsall-Hewitt
    // 2013-05-17 20:11:40 // //
  • Ewwww you like rapists and men who use girls for sex then ignores their calls? You are a monster

    Jane Hodsall-Hewitt
    // 2013-05-17 20:06:05 // //
  • Russell Brand is a narcissistic sociopath/psychopath who uses, consumes and discards people like trash. He only loves himself and seeks fame. He is predatory and conceited. He is as spiritual as a dose of Chylamidia

    Jane Hodsall-Hewitt
    // 2013-05-17 20:05:02 // //
  • Brand should be in prison and shunned and ignored by society. He is similar to Jimmy Saville in that he uses the guise of charity worker as a means to gain a positive persona enabling him to remain a successful predator. Who knows how many girls and women there are out there in therapy feeling used and full of self-loathing because they were one of Brand and his circle of perverts `night wives`?

    Jane Hodsall-Hewitt
    // 2013-05-17 20:03:19 // //
  • If Russell Brand had groomed, anally and vaginally penetrated and then discarded, refused to answer the calls or emails after he`d got what he wanted from your teenage sister you`d be as furious as me. Brand is a narcissist and sociopath, it is obvious. He uses his charm to lure people in and exploits them in the most disgusting manner. He married Katy Perry to increase his own fame and then discarded and cheated on her when he got bored. Any woman who finds him funny is a traitor to her own sex

    Jane Hodsall-Hewitt
    // 2013-05-17 20:02:51 // //
  • It`s great that he found something to move him away from that life, and towards this one - yoga.

  • Yes, there are only three parts to the interview, which can be reached by clicking at the end of this one.

  • I just came to ignore you Deepak, as you constantly ignored my questions on your site for months now, before I get rid of this mumbo-jumbo of whatever you please to post here - and which is obviously much more important to you than answering actual questions of people who thought you are a wiseman. But it seems you are just an attention seeker. Well you will get no attention from me anymore, and I would GLADLY write here many rude words to you, but I won`t only because I would get censored.

  • Nobody is a perfect role model, unless they sacrifice a lot and keep a clean file with media. Deepak has achieved it with so much criticism and denial from the elite of society. Giving everybody a chance is fair if u could tolerate so many others who are worth one second of fame in any type of media.
