Katy Perry, she really knows how to pick her men. Not only did she marry Russell Brand – who was once known as Britain’s number one ‘shagger’, she’s now dating John ‘the player’ Mayer.
Of course, both men have never denied their fondness for the ladies. In fact, last night during an interview with American radio host Howard Stern, Russell seemed positively offended when Stern suggested that John was a better womaniser than he.
When asked, ‘What do you make of your ex-wife dating John Mayer, doesn’t she know he’s a worse womaniser than you?’ Russell responded, ‘Worse or better, depending on how you view it.’ Stern then stated, ‘He’s a better womaniser then.’ To which Russell said, ‘Hold on, I resent that! I'm world class.’
But which man should take the womaniser crown, there’s only one way to decided, with a little game of top trumps...
1. THE WOMEN
Russell: From Kate Moss to Peaches Geldof to Geri Halliwell and Imogen Thomas, Russell once claimed he’d slept with over 2000 women, phew!
John Mayer: Keeping it a-list John’s had his wicked way with Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift and Jessica Simpson
WINNER: Russell, whilst John might get the a-lists Russell wins on numbers alone
2. The COMMENTS
Russell: Remember when Russell said that Katy was into ‘wheelchair porn’ just six months after they broke up, yeah that
John: He referred to his relationship with Jessica Simpson as ‘sexual napalm’. Nice
WINNER: John, whilst Russell was joking John made his comments in all seriousness, seriously
3. The CLOTHES
Russell: He used to pull women in his leather and tight t-shirts (we have to admit it was quite hot) now he’s never out of his yoga clothes…er…
John: Whilst John has been known to rock a cow-boy hat on a far too regular occasion his current sleeker look is pretty fit… did we just say that
WINNER: John, he knows that if you want to keep the ladies interested you’ve got to keep your looks
4. THE ROMANTIC GESTURES
Russell: Shortly after they got married it was reported that Russell Brand had bought Katy Perry a tiger, pretty impressive
John: John wrote a song about Jennifer Aniston after their break up called Shadow Days, it’s pretty depressing TBH
WINNER: Russell, live animals win every time
5. The HAIR
Russell: Scraggy, long, messy, unkempt, all words that could and probably have been used to describe Russell Brand’s hair
John: It’s changed a lot, we didn’t like the long look but he’s shorter style looks pretty good
WINNER: Russell, whilst John’s hair is more groomed we have to let Russell win, anyone who can pull with that hair deserves a prize.
Overall winner: Russell. Don't worry Russ, you've still got it - just!
