Russell Brand discussed John Mayer and Katy Perry with Howard Stern earlier this week, and his pop star ex was spared any truly brutal comments.

At least considering this is Russell Brand and Howard Stern.

“What do you make of your ex-wife dating John Mayer?” Stern asked, getting right down to it. “Doesn’t she know that he’s a worse womanizer than you?”

“Worse or better, depending on how you view it,” Brand joked.


Stern replied, “He’s a better womanizer, then.”

“I resent that!” Brand joked.

In all seriousness, Russell wouldn’t criticize ex-wife’s choice in men, saying, “You have to let go of the instinct to protect someone once you divorce them.”

Stern tried to push him to trash talk Mayer and/or Katy Perry.

“So help me God, Howard Stern, I will not compromise my ex-wife’s vagina for the sake of ratings!” Brand said. “That woman was perfect from top to bottom!”

As for Brand’s own love life, he denied rumors that he’s been dating Demi Moore, who split from husband Ashton Kutcher in November 2011.

“I really like her, she’s a beautiful person. I’ve not made love to her yet, Howard, but it’s a matter of time,” he joked. “That’s the sort of thing that’ll get in the newspaper.”

Brand admits he’d like to find someone new.

“I’m not dating anybody. Actually, I’d like a romance,” he said.

“Not so much playing the field, just going through life, meditating, doing yoga, concentrating on this TV show and trying to find a nice wife.”

Sounds remarkably normal.
