A joke from comedian/host Russell Brand about the Jonas Brothers' purity rings enraged fans and celebrities like Jordin Sparks and Paris Hilton at this year's VMAs. As Jordin announced T.I.'s performance, she stood up for Kevin, Nick and Joe's decision to wear the rings. "I just have one thing to say about promise rings," Jordin said. "It's not bad to wear a promise ring because not everybody--guy or girl--wants to be a slut."
