'I'm doing well': Russell Brand says wallowing over Katy Perry split would be 'meaningless'

While we're all pleased to hear Russell Brand is 'doing well', our beloved outspoken Essex comedian appears to have gone all Hollywood on us.
As the Get Him To The Greek star was quizzed about life after Katy Perry, he offering a philosophical outlook which once upon a time would have been the subject of ridicule in one of his stand-up sketches.
The 36-year-old revealed to People: 'I'm doing well… You don't need to brush it off if you don’t get it on you in the first place.'
'Doing well': Russell Brand says he 'doesn't hold on to anything negative'
It seems Russell was attempting to
explain that he's no longer upset over his doomed marriage to Katy
Perry, so there are no demons to exorcise.
He implied he now feels indifference, adding: 'I don't have to let anything go. I don't hold on to anything negative. It's the same as zero-ness.
'It's not about letting it go. You can't let go of something you don't hold, you know. It's
meaningless… And I don't do that anymore.'
Moving on: Russell is now dating Hungarian model Nikolett Barabas
The former Big Brother's Big Mouth
host and the Firework singer split from one another last December, after
just 14 months of marital 'bliss'.
Perhaps Russell's relaxed approach to the matter is due to his love affair with
Kundalini yoga, a practice which focuses on physical and spiritual
intuition in a bid to develop strength, awareness and character.
Or it could be thanks to the new lady in his life.
Russell is now dating Hungarian model Nikolett Barabas.

And as he seems smitten, even
introducing her to his mother and inviting her to New Orleans while he
shoots his latest film, she is equally besotted.
Nikolett gushed to Life & Style:
'He’s amazing, so funny; he’s beautiful. I like being with him; he’s
amazing, so amazing. He’s a good person.'
It seems Russell finally has his mojo
back, indulging fans with a little insight into his upcoming late-night
show, due on FX later this year.
He said: 'We'll talk about current
affairs and analyse and deconstruct the media of the day and approach
news from a humanitarian and spiritual angle, whilst keeping it
simultaneously and continuously humorous.'
