Like a virgin
I'd like to take a minute to say that I think that Russel Brand is HILARIOUS. I think his brand (not a play on words here) of humor is hilarious. What I saw of the VMA's last night, he was the highlight of the night...he's funny. Really funny.
However, I would like to give props to my girl Jordin Sparks for standing up for what she believes. For those who didn't see it, Brand made fun of the fad in Hollywood to wear purity rings. Jordin came out and said something to the effect of: not everyone, guy or girl, wants to be a slut...and that's okay. I'm assuming that she doesn't mean that simply having sex before marriage implies slut-dom...but the thought behind what she said is great!
Hey, personal choice is personal choice, but I can say for certain, I am incredibly happy that I waited until I was married to have sex. And I think my wife would say that same for herself.
There's no judgement here: everybody has baggage to deal with. Premarital sex is no worse than the next person's baggage...but it's nice to see Jordin take a stand on one of the biggest broadcast's of the year.
