Project Runway winner Christian Sirano was recently on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He was his typically over the top and hilarious self. He talked about a myriad of topics during the show and of course Craig asked him about his use of the word fierce. It was very cute. Check it out. xox.
OMG - I totally need to go out dancing soon. When a new Madonna track is blasted in a club, there is nothing like it. The dance floor always swells to capacity as soon as her voice is heard. Peter Rauhofer premiered his remixes of 4 Minutes at the Friday dance party called WORK in NYC. It sounds like classic Rauhofer from beginning to end. Peter's remixes were always so damn good. I can't wait to get my hands on them. Hot. xxx.
Madonna graces the cover of May's Vanity Fair. This is a brilliant shot. I cannot wait to see the rest. WOW WOW WOW. She was shot by long time friend and collaborator Steven Meisel . He was the man behind Madonna's SEX book in the 90s. Again...WOW. xox.
I had never heard the poem entitled Bittersweet, which was read by Madonna, and included on an album called A Gift Of Love: Deepak & Friends Present Music Inspired By The Love Poems Of Rumi until last night. The album was released in 1998 during Madge's Ray of Light era. Demi Moore, Blythe Danner, and Goldie Hawn, among others lend their voice in reading these beatuiful poems. Check out Madge's below. xox.
In my hallucination I saw my beloved's flower garden In my vertigo, in my dizziness In my drunken haze Whirling and dancing like a spinning wheel
I saw myself as the source of existence I was there in the beginning And I was the spirit of love Now I am sober There is only the hangover And the memory of love And only the sorrow
I yearn for happiness I ask for help I want mercy And my love says:
Look at me and hear me Because I am here Just for that
I am your moon and your moonlight too I am your flower garden and your water too I have come all this way, eager for you Without shoes or shawl
I want you to laugh To kill all your worries To love you To nourish you
Oh sweet bitterness I will soothe you and heal you I will bring you roses I, too, have been covered with thorns
Internet star La Pequeña is making a splash online. La Pequeña is a hispanic drag queen little person. La Pequeña has done Hillary Clinton most recently and she has also done a lil' Winehouse. The results are shocking. It's like nothing you have ever seen or will likely ever wish to see. I love it but it's just...so...odd. Damn. I need to go wash out my eyes. Check it out.
Demi Moore was on David Letterman the other evening looking as amazing as ever. She spoke about her new movie Flawless as well a little treatment that she gets while away in Austria - it involves some cute lil' leeches. Yes - leeches. Check it out.
Style.com featured a very fun video showing all the highlights from Paris' Fall 2008 fashion week. I hardly keep up with the shows and all that but when I find fashion so interestingly dissected and discussed, I'm always intrigued. Check it out.
time invades this space and wants to suffocate me with her wisdom; imparts the place where quickening becomes wild - winter doesn't stop here just spring; just summer - just young hearts competing for the quickest breath of fresh air that manifests art from the insides out. turning, turning, becoming: a january, a february, a march well spent. in no relation to it's whiteness or words without paper, washed out the stars from my mouth and replaced them with sounds of diamonds - things that reflect perfect light and collect the where, with all that's.
"For me it was never really a choice between New York and Los Angeles. I've always considered New York my home and since my husband Matthew Broderick was born and raised here we never even considered moving away. New York has the big advantage of not treating celebrities like exotic creatures. No-one cares because the city is so big and driven by so many other interests that people don't obsess with actors as much as they do in Los Angeles, where it all revolves around Hollywood."
Walking down the street the other day I saw a huge poster commemorating Michael Jackson's Thriller album which is now 25 years old. I began to think of how much me and my buddy Jason used to love him. Well, Jason was the bigger fan. I was beginning my love affair with Madonna at the time. Duh. Anyway, Jason and I would watch his performances and just be absolutely blown away. There was no one like him around. What he could do on stage was poetry. I know we are way past the days of questioning what the hell happened to his career, much less his appearance, but sometimes it just strikes me as so sad. He still has every ounce of his hard earned talent but who wants to give him the time of day to show it off? Even if Michael wanted to jump start his career, I don't think the American people would allow it. We all love to see the triumph of the underdog and see as they come back out on top but I think he past that stage eons ago. With a quick search I was able to find one of my favorite Michael performances ever. The following performance is from the MTV Video Music Awards in 1995. I remember watching this knowing that no one could ever touch this. Every step of this performance seems effortless. It's all so innovative and inspiring and thoughtful. Each move he makes is calculated and on point. Just watch this performance. It's effin' flawless. Pure dance genius. In recent time, a few critics have begun calling Justin Timblerlake the King of Pop. I still think he has a way to go. Justin's stage performance is amazing but it still can't quite compare - not just yet anyway. If there was ever any question on where to look for guidance, this performance should be part of Pop School 101. It's amazing that Michael still, in my opinion, holds that title of King of Pop nearly a decade past his hit making prime. Michael's last #1 was 1995's You Are Not Alone. I guess he set the bar so high that even he couldn't reach it again. I sure would like to see him try.
I was recently out one evening and the following track was thumping in the background. Oh my gooooodness! This song took me waaaaaaaay back - like way way way back. I can't even get in to the stories enveloping this song and all those moments but they were the beginning of me growing the fuck up. I met the most beautiful people and the most...well...not during this time. These folks were the backdrop on a time that I do not regret but look back at now with extreme understanding. In 1998 I had a ton of learning to do and music like this was my first chapter. It opened up doors. Good music speaks volumes if you have an open ear. I can hardly believe this track is now a decade old. This is still one of the best house tracks ever made.
