Despite critics over his savage comic tongue which lashed Jonas Brothers' vow to stay virgin until their marriage, British comedian Russell Brand has been requested to host MTV Video Music Awards again. "MTV told me they want me to do it again. Afterward, they were really thrilled," the comedian says.

Elaborating his statement, Russell continues saying, "My phone hasn't stopped ringing. Most people thought it was great and I'm pleased with how it went." However, he says that the offer is still in consideration. "I will think very carefully about accepting," he states briefly.

Furthermore, commenting on the last weekend's show, Russell admits that he had a difficulty in handling the situation where all people expected for the best. "I spent a lot of time suppressing the urge to scream a career-ending remark during the show," he explains. "The knowledge that you could say something that would make the world go nuts was difficult."

Outside his hosting job, Russell has also been busy finishing a comedy movie named "Get Him to the Greek" where he plays with Christina Aguilera to reprise his role as fictional Aldous Snow of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". Speaking of the collaboration, he states, "Christina was amazing. She is unbelievable, a perfect object."
