Controversial comedian RUSSELL BRAND recently gave sex tips to BRITNEY SPEARS – but was left red-faced when he tried to demonstrate a bedroom technique.
The British funnyman met the Toxic hitmaker when he hosted the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this month (Sep08).
And the serial womanizer was happy to pass on his experience between the sheets – but the conversation didn’t quite go according to plan.
He tells Rolling Stone magazine, “I did describe one very basic sexual technique to Britney, which I think she would have hugely benefited from. But I wasn’t able to demonstrate, so it was a dismal failure.”
Brand also admits he was surprised by the attitude of Americans he met while traveling across the States to film a documentary.
Asked about the differences between U.S. audiences and those in his native Britain, he says, “When an English journalist asks that question, they want me to go, ‘American audiences are stupid’. But that is not what I’ve found.
“I made a documentary about (American novelist/poet) Jack Kerouac a year ago, and traveling across America I met people that look like slack-jawed, gap-toothed hillbillies. I thought, ‘This’ll be a laugh’. But when I went to talk to them, they talked about (philosopher) Noam Chomsky, the Federal Reserve, the worthlessness of the dollar – there was unbelievable awareness.
“A mistake that I will never make is to forget that there is a distinction between American foreign policy and the American people.”
