Russell Brand recommends monogamy

Russell Brand Russell Brand thinks monogamy is a beautiful thing. The 38-year-old former sex addict, who split from Katy Perry in 2011 after 14 months of marriage, admits he thinks the idea of staying committed to one person is "hard-core" but thinks it is the only way for a marriage to work. The comedian told the HuffPost Live show on Tuesday: "I don't think monogamy is an impediment to anything if it's a philosophical choice that you make. I do query monogamy. It's a very severe state. It's a hard-core thing, monogamy. It's a hard-core principle. But beautiful, and to be recommended. And if you make a commitment to it, you've got to do it. When I was married, monogamy straight down the middle. You can't mess around with that stuff." Earlier this month, Russell admitted he "loved" being married to the 'Firework' singer, 28, and insisted he never cheated on her. He said: "I tried it and I loved it. I really think she's a lovely beautiful person. It's just hard isn't it? She's got a lot of options, I've got a lot of options, so you've got to really, really want it. When I'm in a relationship I'm diligently monogamous and stick to the principles agreed on within that relationship. You've got to, I think."

    Considering how nasty and ugly looking he is, I still do not understand why anyone would want to sleep with this fugly looking mess

    14 month marriage while being mostly apart the whole time is NOT even close to a taste of what monogamy is.
    But ya, it’s a hard core thing and tough but worth it to have a best friend and lover. Someone you can count on.

    Can he please stop talking about his short lived marriage? I don’t dislike him, but he seems to go on and on about it

    Love him and it’s awesome that he was faithful, despite his opportunities. Can we say the same about his ex? I wonder.
