"How can we celebrate 2009 without that fantastic woman. There has been a lot of mud slinging and rumour-mongering and rubbish - people saying that she's a hermaphrodite.

If you haven't worked it out by now, I'm trying to f**k her." MTV Video Music Awards host Russell Brand got Sunday's (13Sep09) show off to a naughty start by professing his love to Lady GaGa.
