Ah yes, Russell Brand, the cockneyed comedian, Katy Perry-loving yogi! No yogarazzi spreads a la Carmen Electra quite yet, but Mr. Brand is flashing his flexi skills for the bros of hit Nickelodeon show “Big Time Rush” a show about the making of a boy band. (WARNING: do not click on that link unless you are fully prepared to get a blast of boy band-aliciousness only Bieber fans are desensitized to, and also drool over).
Via Mirror UK:
“When most people are tired they take a nap. Not Russell. He does yoga. He’s on the floor doing the ‘sitting dog/duck’ pose and contorting his body into weird shapes. Then we’d have tea and crumpets and talk cockney. He was mad,” says Kendall, a star on BTR, regarding Russell’s guest appearance.
Love it! The idea of whipping out “kooky” yoga moves in front of young popstar chaps makes us giggle with girlish delight. We hope some of the shenanigans made it into the episode.
