What do women see in Russell Brand?
Brand recently penned an article in the newspaper to discuss his well-publicized incident at the GQ Men of the Year Awards. The Comedian brought up sponsor Hugo Boss’ connection to Nazis (the German company made Nazi uniforms) as was escorted out. However, he also off-handedly mentioned a new woman in his life. He wrote, “I’m not typically immune to the allure of objectified women, but I am presently beleaguered by a nerdish, whirling dervish, and am eschewing all others. Perhaps the clarity of this elation has awakened me. A friend of mine said: ‘Being in love is like discovering a concealed ballroom in a house you’ve long inhabited.'” The woman in question appears to be Jemima Khan, who was spotted with Brand in New York over the weekend. Khan is the ex-wife of a Pakistani cricket star and dated actor Hugh Grant for three years. She is currently editor-at-large for Vanity Fair. The two may have met in 2011, when she asked him to write an article in the New Statesmen while she was guest editor. It was in the same year Brand and Katy Perry filed for divorce, with Brand allegedly breaking the news to Perry via text message. Katy Perry has appeared to move on as well, currently enjoying a romance with John Mayer after a few rocky starts. 2013 Starpulse.com
Russell Brand and Jemima Khan make romance official with New York stroll
Finally, I agreed to go on a date with him (it was that or take out a restraining order). And so it was that I found myself having Sunday lunch with him in a pub in Primrose Hill, followed by a trip to the cinema to see Proof, a film that I vaguely recall being about mathematics. When I think about it now, it was all strangely quaint. The man across the table was a million miles away from the foul-mouthed culprit behind that prank call to the actor Andrew Sachs, which he would make just over two years later. Brand didnt drink he didnt have to but he insisted that I did. He was exactly as he seems on television, always talking a mile a minute. He asked again and again if I fancied him. It was all a little exhausting. He was charming, funny, dazzlingly clever, all things that can make even matted and dreadlocked hair look attractive. We saw each other a couple of times, but I was hardly dreaming of marriage, if only because I got the impression that he could lose interest as quickly as he had developed it. Lo and behold, I opened the paper one day to see a spread on the Lothario who had started dating Kate Moss. I suppose there are worse people to be usurped by. And at least it wasnt as humiliating as what happened to Katy Perry, the American singer, whom Brand married in 2009 and then divorced 14 months later.
Apparently the pair had a very serious romance after bonding during the Olympics closing ceremony rehearsals back in summer 2012. But just days after Geri confirmed the fledgling relationship, the comic was spotted checking into a hotel with a mystery brunette. Groomy K 16/09/2013 14:32 Has the woman lost her senses, what is she doing with an ugly, no class, useless lump of garbage, who looks like it has purchased its clothing from a rag picker. God help her, she must have had a breakdown or something similar. Poor soul. NasumGrinds101 16/09/2013 13:42 What do women see in this tosspot, some women deserve all they get from dating a sleazebag like Brand. 16/09/2013 14:15 I fail to see how anyone can be bowled over by someone with more gums than teeth. jemima khan must be desparate if she is seeing that clown! Fast show 16/09/2013 14:18 ‘Chacun a son gout’ as the French say, or in her case from the sublime to the ridiculous. Mindovermatter68 16/09/2013 19:39 The man is totally unfunny and annoying. I really don’t see what people see in him. And she is grose. 16/09/2013 17:33 You can lookat a coupleand you canthinkthey really suit each other personalities etc You look at these two and they just don’t look right together.They really don’t.Anyway, who are we to judge its obviously feels RIGHT for them and that’s what matter. Creamtease 16/09/2013 20:35 I bet Lady Annabel is well pleased. Especially when he starts talking about “Dinkles” over Christmas lunch, yep, she’s going to be thrilled. Alan Powell(snapperalan) 16/09/2013 13:57 The off spin of this relationship could be a child, stumpedwith this father theyon a sticky wicket in life as the marriage (if one),I must declare, will be ashort lived partnership that will runoutbefore a half century. Mr Bilton(Mr Bilton) 16/09/2013 21:15 By nature,i’m a very untrusting and cynical person and in this world that’s so full of deciet,lie’s and evil,i feel this is a good approach.This mindset cannot help but suspect very strongly that Mr Brand has led a very charmed life having attained his current fame,status and fortune when considering his (apparently) very bad,scummy type of former existence,one cannot help but be very cynical that,from a down-and-out druggy,he’s single handedly rose to this level of fame/fortune when nearly everyone you talk too thinks he’s useless and completely un-funny….this is very suspicious,as we all know,the media is very capable OF MAKING STARS out anyone by just totally overhyping them and through repetition,TELLING US that THEY ARE GENIUSES or VERY TALENTED etc.
Or lack of it. Perhaps it doesnt help that her beloved late father, Sir James Goldsmith, was a man who revelled in being unfaithful to the women in his life. Dont forget, it was the famously libidinous Goldsmith who once said that when you marry your mistress, you create a vacancy. So perhaps a romance between Brand and Khan was not surprising. In some respects, they have much in common. Although from very different backgrounds, they are the kind of rich, hip kidults who fondly imagine themselves to be subversive and anti-establishment bucaneers. Both also regard themselves as great intellectuals, please stop sniggering at the back. That mutual bond will surely provide lots of interesting post-coital chats where they can agree with each other over cups of Fairtrade peppermint tea and cuddles. After all, hes just the boy next door – if you lived next door to a skip full of leftover costumes from We Will Rock You. And as for Jemima? Why, she is just a normal, everyday heiress who wants to be left alone with her nice, new, sensible boyfriend without anyone interfering. Ahem, ahem. How long will this one last? Until the scales fall from her eyes, until the bleeding obvious hits her, until she can see what everyone else sees.
