Russell Brand is an awesome guy. I never understand why people dislike him so much. Every year he comes to a school in a poor neighborhood in San Francisco and has a meditation with all the kids from the schools in the area. It's amazing to see him jumping around and getting all the kids riled up, but then as soon as he says "okay kids, it's time to meditate" every single one of them becomes silent and follows his lead. Afterwards he stays and talks to whoever wants to have a chat with him. He might be sex obsessed, but he seems like a really great guy when you meet him.
These interviews with him are great
(take the time to watch them all!)
