Responding to the public mock that Russell Brand made during the MTV VMAs on their purity rings and sexual moral, Jonas Brothers said they weren't upset at the British comedian. The trio, who were in England promoting their Disney movie "Camp Rock," even expressed their praise for him, calling him "hilarious."

Brand, who served as a host at the awards show on Sunday, September 7, poked fun on Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas, and Kevin Jonas for more than half of the show over their vow not to have sex before marriage, marked by the purity rings they're wearing. His negative remarks on the brothers have provoked negative reaction from some other celebs, including Jordin Sparks, Paris Hilton and gossip blogger Perez Hilton, all of whom have shown their support for the siblings' sexual commitment.

Aside from the pros and cons, Jonas Brothers have shown their positive attitude towards Brand. During a scheduled appearance on BBC Radio's Newsbeat program Friday, September 5, Nick said "For us it's cool to see that he recognizes we are gentleman." Older brother, Kevin, on the other hand told the radio, "I think he focused on certain things and didn't move off of them" adding that "People's attention spans in America need more than that."

Nick went on praising Brand's hosting duty at the event, claiming "I think he did a good job [at the show]. We saw him on Conan O'Brien and thought he was hilarious." Kevin then added that despite Brand's verbal jabs at them, he and his brothers "had a good time" during the entire evening as they "had a lot of friends there and everybody's so nice."

The brothers' positive comment on Brand came in the wake of the star's apology to them. "I've gotta say sorry because I said those things about promise rings; that was bad of me. I didn't mean to take it lightly," Brand told the crowd at the end of the awards show.

I watch the VMAs and I was sadly upset on what Russel Brand said about the Jonas Brothers and his thoughs on the repulican party. He should have said those things. Their are people who really care about those topic talk about and he just mock them. I know he is a good comedian but he needs to know his limits. It like Dane Cook telling redneck jokes. Every comendian need to have a limit and Russel Brand didn't have a limit at the VMAs causing him to crazy. I appreciate that Jonas Brothers are taking their religon seriously and keep themselves pure.

Aww! I love the Jonas Brothers. I watched the VMAs 3 times in a row and got 2 hours of sleep. I think it was kinda inappropriate of that Brand guy to say that. Especially since ALL Jonas fans were watching. They looked really sad when they were on camera when Brandy was apologizing. Oh well! If they want to feel better, all they have to do is read their facebook that has "OMJ! Yall are soo hott!" All over it. I think that will make them feel better! LOL! I love them so much though, they are my heroes! I write on their myspace like 4 times a day. Once when I get up, once after school, once after dinner and once before bed. I have to go. I'm sure that was lots of fun to read! LOL! Bye Bye! ~jonas~
