Turns Out Russell Brand Auditioned For 90’s Boyband 5ive While Off His Tits On Meth

Written by Emmy Mack on June 11, 2017

Every self-respecting 90’s kid’s favourite non-Backstreet boyband 5ive could have turned out very differently if perhaps Russell Brand had laid off the uppers.

The cheeky British LOLsmith has revealed that he originally tried out for the ‘Everybody Get Up’ singers, but missed out on the gig, at least partially because he rocked up to the audition off his chops on methamphetamines.

As Brand tells Carpool Karaoke dude James Corden in a recent interview on his Late Late Show, he performed Extreme’s classic acoustic ballad ‘More Than Words’ in front of a bunch of Simon Cowell types but it — uh — didn’t quite score him a touchdown.

Hear Russell Brand tell it, as only Russell Brand can, in the video below.
