Russell Brand Joins Fight to Free Bieber’s Pet Monkey

British comedian Russell Brand on Wednesday joined a comedy TV campaign to free Justin Bieber’s pet monkey.

The funnyman joined comedian Jimmy Kimmel and country singer Gary Allan on late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live! for verses of Tom Petty’s Free Fallin’ andFreedom by George Michael, which had been altered lyrically to urge German officials to release the pop star’s pet back to his care.

Bieber was caught trying to smuggle the monkey into Germany without the correct paperwork last weekend.

Brand rapped, “This is an important issue about primate freedom,” and added, “That monkey’s really rare/It belongs in Justin’s care.”

The Brit also used his appearance on the show to campaign for empty TV studios to be used to shelter the homeless.

Brand explained he had tried the idea in London with a homeless pal called Crazy Al, but it hadn’t worked out because Al was “a bit of a loose cannon”.

He explained, “He didn’t observe all the rules and it was like a butcher’s shop in there.”

But he isn’t giving up on the initiative and he is hoping studio bosses in America will support his plan: “I will continue with my campaign to allow homeless people to occupy TV studios at night.”

Matt Damon Takes Over Jimmy Kimmel’s Show

Matt Damon made his debut as a late night TV host by taking over Jimmy Kimmel Live! and replacing the crew with his celebrity friends.

The movie star has been the butt of U.S. comedian Kimmel’s jokes for a decade, and he has been bumped from imaginary appearances on the show 1,205 times, with the host often ending his shows by claiming he had run out of time to feature Damon.

The Bourne Identity star opened the show with a fake kidnap video he had taped to promote his appearance and then took the stage with Kimmel gagged and tied to a chair behind him.

Damon said, “Welcome to tonight’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Sucks. Just for starters, let me ask you guys this – as an audience, is it weird to see a person with actual talent host this show?”

He added, “I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long, long time. This is like the time I lost my virginity, except this is going to last way longer than one second.”

Damon then replaced Kimmel’s devoted sidekick Guillermo with Andy Garcia and the host’s band leader Cleto Escobedo III with Sheryl Crow before introducing Robin Williams to deliver the show’s opening monologue. To make the Good Will Hunting reunion complete, the actor had longtime pal Ben Affleck step in as a cue card holder.

The Argo star, who once appeared in a comedy skit on the show as Kimmel’s gay lover, pretended to be upset by the takeover and he walked out on Damon, stating, “Forget it Matt, I couldn’t do it to Jimmy”.

However, there were more big stars to come – Jennifer Lopez, Sally Field, Robert De Niro and Oprah Winfrey were among the celebrities who offered up video well wishes to the Saving Private Ryan actor as he continued with the show.

Winfrey said, “You have a gift, my friend. Not everybody can host a show.”

Damon then tried to explain why Kimmel hated him, suggesting, “Jimmy always wanted to be an actor, and, unfortunately for him, I beat him out for every role he ever truly wanted. Jimmy has auditioned for every movie I’ve ever been in, every single one of them. How many did he get? None. So, he hates me.”

The stand-in host then offered up skits of Kimmel trying out for roles in Good Will Hunting, The Adjustment Bureau, We Bought a Zoo, The Bourne Ultimatum, Stuck on You and Happy Feet 2, for which the comic dressed up as a penguin.

Promising another “gaggle of huge stars Jimmy Kimmel could never dream of,” Damon then introduced Nicole Kidman, who has never been a guest on the show before. The actress stepped onstage, straddled the tied-up host and simulated sex with him before sitting down to chat with his replacement.

Asked why she has never guested on the show, she told Damon, “He’s (Kimmel) not classy. I mean he f***ing sucks!”

During the chat, Kidman admitted she would love to work with Gary Oldman, so Damon then introduced the Brit, a regular on the show.

The Dark Knight star insisted he had no recollection of ever being interviewed by Kimmel before, and when Kidman showed Oldman a photograph of the real host, he insisted it was an “impersonator”.

Reese Witherspoon and Demi Moore also stopped by to take part, joining the other celebrities on the crowded sofa.

Damon left the biggest surprise until last when he introduced Kimmel’s ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman, who once teamed up with the Bourne star to film a skit video called I’m F***ing Matt Damon.

The movie star ended the show by thanking his guests as Kimmel sat beside him with the word ‘Loser’ scrawled on his forehead in red lipstick. He offered the real host a chance to close the show with a few words, but when he motioned to take off his gag, Damon got his own back by saying, “I’m sorry, we’re out of time. Good night everybody.”

The stars are all set to return to Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, where the show is filmed, on Friday when Kimmel unveils his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Glen Campbell Appears on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer Tomorrow—New CD Out August 30

Legendary musician Glen Campbell has announced a number of appearances surrounding the arrival of his remarkable new Surfdog Records release, Ghost On The Canvas. The album – which marks the iconic singer/guitarist/songwriter’s final studio recording – arrives everywhere on August 30th.

Campbell will discuss the album, as well as his recent diagnoses of early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease, in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Terry Moran, slated to air tomorrow, August 23 (6:30pm EST) on World News with Diane Sawyer. The interview will be followed by Nightline the same night (11:35pm) and the next day on Good Morning America. In addition, the multiple Grammy Award-winner will herald Ghost On The Canvas with an array of live TV performances, including NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on September 12th and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on September 27th.
Ghost On The Canvas sees Campbell capping his brilliant career with one of his most moving and energized works to date, a powerfully emotional song cycle that sees him accompanied by a truly dazzling line-up of songwriters and musicians. Among the tunesmiths contributing original songs to the collection are such modern luminaries as Paul Westerberg, Jakob Dylan, Robert Pollard, and Teddy Thompson, backed by a roster of players that includes Chris Isaak, Dick Dale, Billy Corgan, Brian Setzer, Rick Nielsen, Roger Manning, and The Dandy Warhols. The album is produced by Julian Raymond, who also co-wrote a number of new songs with Campbell.
Ghost On The Canvas has already earned early praise from Rolling Stone which calls the disc “powerful” and England’s Uncut, which awarded the album four-out-of-five stars while applauding Campbell’s “majestic storytelling” and “soaring vocal(s).” In addition, Associated Press hailed a recent Campbell concert in Biloxi, Mississippi – his first live date since announcing his illness – as no less than “a triumph,” noting that “the 75-year-old Campbell brought the crowd to its feet after acing the delicate runs in the middle of his classic ‘Wichita Lineman.'”
Campbell will celebrate the new album – as well as his extraordinary five-decade-plus career – with a valedictory concert tour, dubbed “The Glen Campbell Goodbye Tour.” Among the highlights is a hugely anticipated show at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre, set for October 6th. Campbell will then travel to England, Ireland and Scotland for a major series of dates, including an October 22nd concert at London’s Royal Festival Hall. A slate of additional shows will be announced shortly.

Over the course of his astonishing career, Campbell can lay claim to six Top 20 albums and 21 Top 40 hit singles. His track record as one of country music’s greatest stars includes 27 Top 10 country classics spanning 22 years, as well as nine #1 country albums.
Campbell has also received a stunning array of honors, beginning in 1967 when he made history by winning multiple Grammy Awards in both the Country & Western and Pop categories: “Gentle On My Mind” was honored as “Best Country & Western Vocal Performance, Male” and “Best Country & Western Recording,” while “By The Time I Get To Phoenix” was named “Best Vocal Performance, Male” and “Best Contemporary Male Solo Vocal Performance.” The following year saw Campbell earning yet another Grammy when By The Time I Get To Phoenix was named “Album of the Year” – the first country album to win the top award. What’s more, “Gentle On My Mind,” “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” and “Wichita Lineman” have all since received the “Grammy Hall of Fame Award.”Among Campbell’s many other honors are seven Academy of Country Music Awards (including “Top Male Vocalist” and “Album of the Year” in both 1967 and 1968), three American Music Awards (celebrating “Rhinestone Cowboy” and the album that bears its name), three Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, two Country Music Association Awards, and the UK’s Q Award for “Q Legend.” In addition, Campbell has received the Academy of Country Music’s prestigious “Pioneer Award” and has been inducted to both the Country Music Hall of Fame as well as the Musicians Hall of Fame (honoring his membership in The Wrecking Crew).
