Russell Brand is doing well, thank you.
Returning to his roots - bachelorhood, plus standup comedy - is the ideal way to move on from his marriage to Katy Perry, which ended this winter after 14 months.
To hear Russell tell it, he has no reason not to be well.
Waxing philosophical about life, he says, "You don't need to brush it off if you don’t get it on you in the first place," he says, not specifically defining what "it" is.
The 36-year-old sounds downright zen in adding, "I don't have to let anything go. I don't hold on to anything negative. It's the same as zero-ness."
Asked if that's part of his yoga philosophy, Brand notes. "It's not about letting it go," he says. "You can't let go of something you don't hold, you know. It's meaningless, [and] much of our world is predicated on meaninglessness. And I just don't do that anymore."
As for his upcoming late-night show, which is due later this year on FX?
