LONDON - Newlywed Russell Brand boasted to a member of the news media that he has in the past bedded 90 women in a single month.
Rock and roll icon Rod Stewart replied that Brand is talking rubbish. He then grinned and stated that the only way that Brand could have gone to bed with 90 women in 30 days is if most were of the inflatable variety.
Stewart said that he has known Russell for many years and that he has always had a penchant for exaggerating. Rod noted that Brand once told him and his drummer that he could take a regular drumstick and stick it completely up his nose.
Rod said that after making a bet of £50 [$80 U.S.] Brand only managed to stick the drumstick halfway up his nasal cavity.
Stewart said that on another occasion Rusty, as he calls him, told him that he could put an adult lobster in his underwear and let it remain there for two minutes.
Rod bet him £100 [$160 U.S.] on that one. Stewart laughed when after four seconds Russell let out a yell that people two miles away could have heard.
SIDENOTE: Stewart was asked if he feels that now that the 35-year-old Brand has gotten married to Katy Perry if he thinks he will settle down and act his age instead of his shoe size. Rod grinned like the Chelsea cat that swallowed the Covington canary and replied, "Mate, I effeningly doubt that the crazy bloke will ever settle down."
