The British comedian talks about the singer's new boyfriend and his "womanizing" ways.

Russell Brand has labeled his former wife Katy Perry's new boyfriend John Mayer a "worse womanizer" than himself.

The comedian told Howard Stern that it depends "how you view it" when asked who was better at seducing the opposite sex.

"Doesn't she know that he's a worse womanizer than you?," asked the radio host to the British actor.

"Worse or better, depending on how you view it," he stated, before quickly adding: "Hold on, I resent that. I'm world class!"

Russell also came out in defense of the 'Hot N Cold' singer and said it's sometimes difficult to distant himself from her personal life.

"You have to let go of the instinct to protect someone once you divorce them," he added.

After being goaded into saying something controversial on his ex, he declared he wouldn't be compromising the female and said "that woman was perfect from top to bottom!" 

Katy and John began dating shortly after Katy and the 'Rock Of Ages' actor finalised their divorce last summer.

Meanwhile, the 'Teenage Dream' singer is rumoured to be launching her own fashion label taking inspiration from such stars as Gwen Stefani and Dita Von Teese.
