Attending the Los Angeles premiere of big screen flick "Bedtime Stories" on Thursday, December 18, Russell Brand wasn't one to shy away from making a statement that he wants Jonas Brothers to be his New Year's kiss. "I think all of the Jonas Brothers," the British comedian answered when asked on who he wants to kiss on New Year.
On wanting to kiss Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Nick Jonas, Russell added he wants to kiss them all "very gently and consensually." He, nevertheless, wouldn't disclose on why he wants the siblings.
Russell Brand, who served as the host of the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards in early September, poked fun at Jonas Brothers' "purity rings" for more than half of the show. He suggested that the boys shouldn't keep their virginity for marriage, but rather take advantage of their youth and celebrity status.
He later offered an apology though. "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," so he stated after being criticized by a number of celebs concerning his mean remark.
Jonas Brothers themselves had nothing, but positive response towards Russell's joke, insisting they had no beef with him. "For us it's cool to see that he recognizes we are gentlemen," Nick Jonas told BBC's Radio 1.
