Russell Brand: More yoga, (slightly) less sex

An officially single Russell Brand appeared on "Piers Morgan Tonight" on Tuesday, and things got a little intimate.

The 37-year-old actor/comedian, whose divorce from pop star Katy Perry was finalized this week, revealed that he's been keeping his anger in check with a technique that's been taking precedence over more adult activities.

"For the first time in my life, I spend more time meditating and doing yoga than I do having sex," Brand said.

That answer seemed to catch Piers Morgan by surprise, as Brand clarified, "that's only because I do a hell of a lot of yoga - and they're still neck-and-neck. It's like 'Rumble in the Jungle,' with yoga versus sex."

Brand, who split from Perry last December, has recently been seen hanging out with Jordana Brewster's younger sister, Isabella.

    I realize that the avlaaibility of an appropriate venue is a deciding factor on which cities the tour visits and which ones it doesn't.Still, I find it hard to believe that NO venues could be found in the Pacific Northwest. Not in Seattle, nor Portland, nor even the Hult Center in Eugene?You've also overlooked the northern half of California (San Francisco and Sacramento).I'm certain there are lots of FANS here and any tour stop would quickly be sold out.I HOPE someone in a position of authority reconsiders and the tour is extended to include N. Calif and the Northwest.By the way, I told my wife Melanie was going to win the moment I saw her audition in Atlanta.I remain a (slightly disappointed) fan of the show.

    It's so interesting that so many of the comments are about the way he looks vs. what he said. That is what our society is all about cardboard celebrities who say and do nothing to make this world a better place. I think this guy makes more sense then Mitt Romney for example.

    I thought he was brilliant on the show tonight. I agreed with so much he said about celebrity and what's important in life. I thought he was great.

    Awww...I like Russell. I think a lot of people are way too hard on him. I in no way think Katy is an angel or that she didn't contribute in some way to their break-up. I like Katy, too, but the criticism of Russell seems way too harsh.

    Maybe Isabella will be more accommodating on accompanying him on his "journey" toward sobriety than Katy was. But really, man, just because you can't go to a bar without being magically, inescapably drawn to whatever dealer happens to be within a five mile radius, doesn't mean any of your friends and family who want to go out and have a good time and drink a few brews have betrayed you. Its YOUR deal not theirs. You HAVE to AA and NA, but your family doesn't HAVE to go to Al-anon. Dick. You hurt a good person who loved you that you didn't deserve. May life's pigeons continually crap on your head.

      Attended the Grand Prairie (Dallas) tour last night and all the dancers were exlcleent performers however, we miss the personalities of some of the past dancers (Twitch, Loren, Pasha, etc.) and some of the memorable special dances, just didne28099t seem to be as many with this seasone280a6 We enjoyed seeing some All Stars join in with the new ones. Plus they added some new music/skits and while I like watching Broadway e28093 even this older lady likes hearing more hip hop tunes. My friend and I did go meet the dancers after the show and they were all extremely nice, taking pictures with us. I will keep going year after year after year!!

    Aw, c'mon. He's not THAT bad! Great bone structure. Bad haircut. Better grooming & he'd be much more attractive. He's got the basics for good looks. High cheek bones, masculine nose, nice smile, full head of hair. He just needs to listen to a stylist. And just because his hair is long doesn't make it dirty or flea-ridden. Good god are you stuck in the late 50's @Starfire?

    How come the writers can say s*x but we can't? The reason he has less s*x is bc nobody wants to touch him, male or female. lol
