So, then I began to think (don’t get scared because of that!!). I thought to myself, I could pretend to interview ANY author and how would you know if I made up the answers myself, or plagiarized another interviewer?
Thus, Famous Friday has emerged, like a babe from the womb. I am going to pick a famous author (or celeb) and I will interview them. I will ask them my own questions, but I will take REAL ANSWERS (to who knows what) that they have said in interviews and I will insert it in as their answer to my questions.
So ***** This is fun. Not real. Yes, real quotes, but not to the original questions, or maybe they are…? *****
Today I would love to introduce you to Russell Brand. He has 10 Published books!! I don’t know if you have heard of this sassy brit, but you are sure to find out more than you ever wanted to know today!!!
He has the claim to fame of being ex-husband to Katy Perry. He’s also known for his comedic performances and breaking out in strange song.
Check out this HILARIOUS video with Jimmy Fallon ( ❤ ) and Russell Brand:
Charity – Hey, Russell!! I have to admit I am a little nervous about this interview! One never knows what you are going to do!!
So, I just got home from the Dr. I might be a little…Out of it. I apologize in adva…
Russell – You deserve a medal, or a holiday, or at least a cuddle from somebody.
Charity – OH! UM, well, thank you! I will certainly let MY HUSBAND know. Are you always this…friendly?
Russell – Like most of the superficially decent things I do in life, my motivation was to impress women more than to aid the suffering.
Charity – Well, that’s certainly…noble?
Charity – Well, today is a new day! Let’s change the topic.
Russell – Every Moment is a fresh new beginning…a wonderful inauguration of the great cosmic journey through the Universe. We can do whatever we want. We can change reality at any moment.
Charity – Huh?
Russell – In the same way my cat can never accurately describe the internet, we can never accurately describe the unknowable consciousness of the Universe.
Charity – ha. Yeah, I guess so. Still a little confused, but I think you are saying that the world is vast?
Russell – Yes! Question all information when you receive it! You might not even trust me…Look at me! I’ve got a blanket over my head!!
Charity – Yes, you sure do! So, it is my understanding that you enjoy being a “spiritual leader”?
Russell – I don’t mind having the reputation as a serious and spiritual person. I think that would be a nice reputation to have.
I enjoyed having a reputation as being wild, but these days I try not to worry about what people think in the privacy of their own brain, or what they write in the bizarre publicity of their own newspapers, because all of those things are meaningless.
Charity – I absolutely agree with you. Meaningless. Everything under the sun…
Russell – As a performer, I’m very, very confident in what I do.
Charity – So, how do you like England? I mean, you’ve obviously lived there your whole life, but Americans are obsessed with the British country and culture. What can you tell us about it?
Russell – In England, we have such good manners that if someone says something impolite, the police will get involved.
Charity – I like that! Ok, so I know that you are extremely political.
Russell – When I was poor and I complained about inequality, they said I was bitter. Now I’m rich and complain about inequality, they say I’m a hypocrite. I’m starting to think they just don’t want to talk about inequality.
Charity – Who is “they”?
Charity – haha 🙂 It’s been a pleasure, Russell!! Good luck with everything!!
Russell- No, no, no! Don’t think of it as “Bush being bad” or “Obama being bad”, think of it as the whole system being bad and the whole government needing to be scrapped!
Charity – Thanks!! Ok, well, I’ll leave you to figure all that out!!
Russell – Imagining the overthrow of the current political system is the only way I can be enthused about politics.
Charity – Ok, thanks!! Gets up, sets tablet down on the chair and walks out to the sound of Russell talking and not noticing I am leaving.
