Russell Brand can't swear, mention Scientology



Tbdrussellbrand080108 Remember how we said Russell Brand is slated to host the MTV Video Music Awards in September? Well, what would a story about an Englishman in America be without some rules about etiquette?

"I've been warned when I'm presenting there are two things I am never allowed to say: one -- c---. And two -- Scientology," Brand told London's Mirror. "There is one sentence that could join both of those words but I'm going to try and not say it."

That's good thinking on the part of the guy who came to work at MTV dressed as Osama bin Laden on Sept. 12, 2001. Besides, we all know mentioning Scientology anywhere gets you into big trouble. Oops.
