38 Minutes Of Jay-Z @ Glastonbury

Here is the full 38 minutes of Jay-Z at Glastonbury. His first song was the cover of Oasis's Wonderwall that he obviously didn't know the words to (it's kinda painful) but if you can get past that, the rest is pretty awesome. Jay-Z was just flip'n the bird to Noel Gallegher anyway, cuz Noel said that hip hop didn't belong at Glastonbury. Bounce wit me. Bounce wit me. Can I get a Woop Woop?

Model Ruslana Korshunova Falls To Her Death

The New York Post reported that 20 year old Russian Model, Ruslana Korshunova, fell from her apartment building on Water Street, in New York City yesterday afternoon and died instantly. It appears to be a suicide. No one that they know of, saw her fall or jump. Witnesses had thought at first that she had been hit by a car. They had only heard a very loud noise but then saw her body in the street.


A friend said that, "she is one of the sweetest, nicest people you'll ever meet" and could see no reason at all that would make her do such a thing. Ruslana had just come back from a job in Paris and seemed to be a happy person. She had been sending money to her family in Kazakhstan.




The New American Girl

Pam Anderson has become a United States Citizen, and I guess to celebrate, she decided to put on a cowboy YEEHAW hat and (cuz all us Americans gots us some cowboy hats) strike up her best "I'm an American now" poses for Radar Magazine. It's funny because all of my family members do the same kind of patriotic photo's for the 4TH of July. My mom displays them in her house. Coincidence. Coincidence.

Pam had this to say on becoming an American citizen, "Being a citizen excites me not just because I can vote, but because I can crack the whip on Capitol Hill to defend animals."

Here are 10 more quotes from our new American girl:

1. "There's never going to be a great misunderstanding of me. I think I'm a little whacked. "

2. "Tattoos are like stories - they're symbolic of the important moments in your life. Sitting down, talking about where you got each tattoo and what it symbolizes, is really beautiful."

3. "It's going to take a certain man for me to ever get involved with, because he'll have to realize I don't have two children, I have three. Tommy is always going to always be a part of my life."

4. "People who wear fur smell like a wet dog if they're in the rain. And they look fat and gross."

5. "It is great to be a blonde. With low expectations it's very easy to surprise people."

6. "I was not a big drug person. I couldn't smoke pot because it made me so paranoid that I couldn't tell if I had to pee or I was really cold, so I just didn't enjoy it."

7. "I don't really think about anything too much. I live in the present. I move on. I don't think about what happened yesterday. If I think too much, it kind of freaks me out."

8. "There's no way I set out to be a certain kind of symbol - the way I dress is the way I am, the way I live my life."

9. "And I'm not an actress. I don't think I am an actress. I think I've created a brand and a business."

10. "Making love in the morning got me through morning sickness. I found I could be happy and throw up at the same time."

I think I hear Canada calling.

Scott Weiland On The Same Level As David Bowie

Huh? Where have I been? I didn't know that Scott Weiland was on the same level as David Bowie and Keith Richards. Did someone call Bowie and let him in on this? He might want to know that he's got some competiton to reckon with.

Chris Lee, a writer for the LA Times, had the unfortunate and disgusting task of having to interview the Stone Temple Pilots in May. Actually, it was only unfortunate and disgusting that he had to interview Scott Weiland.

Lee was interviewing STP right before Weiland was supposed to head off to jail for an 8 day sentence, from his DUI charges. This is what Lee had to say along with the interview.

So, in light of that, I asked him a question: “How disruptive has it been on band unity to have you going to serve jail time just before reuniting onstage for the first time in five years?”

His reaction was visceral and emphatic: Weiland spat a huge green loogie on the wall that dripped down just behind bassist Robert DeLeo and his brother, guitarist Dean DeLeo, who, it must be noted, played it off like nothing had happened.

The rest of the exchange went like this:

Where’s your head at right now just before going to jail?

All these questions are …, man. Who do you interview? To what level?

A lot of famous musicians. Not Michael Jackson-famous, though.

Do you interview Keith Richards? David Bowie? Do you interview people who over a 20-year career who aren't...born-again Christians? Who aren't part of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir?

Um , yes. A lot of those guys. I interviewd Bowie but not Keith.

Then you should know our contribution is music, you know? This is the problem with the press. Are you part of the paparazzi?

I write for the Los Angeles Times.

Is there a difference anymore?

Well, the paparazzi don’t write. They take pictures.

I’m not so sure, man. Rolling Stone is borderline these days.

If I’ve said something that put your nose out of joint, I apologize.

My nose isn’t out of joint. I live my life the way I live my life. I don’t have to make any apologies. I just find it a little hilarious that you’d ask such a question.

Cccchh-www-thhsptttt [Weiland spits on the wall].

And now we know what Scott Weiland's wife Mary must go through on a daily basis.

Medication. Medication. Medication.


Beware: Jennifer Lopez's Dog Bites!

Jenny from the block is being sued for $5 million by NetJets flight attendant Lisa Wilson. Jenny had "Floyd" her German Shepard security dog (I've never heard of that) with her on a chartered Gulfstream flight from New York to Burbank, a year ago. Jenny informed Lisa the flight attendant, that Floyd was a good doggie and told her how to behave around the dog. Well, "killer" had plans of his own and attacked the flight attendant, causing her to injure her back when she fell, while trying to escape. Lisa Wilson had to have surgery from her injuries and claims that she has not been able to work since.

I've never been attacked by a German Shepard but I have been attacked by a Rottweiler. A Rottweiler who loved me for a whole year before he fractured my hand with his jaws. I'm just saying that getting attacked by a dog can be a really bad experience. I felt like I was being attacked by a shark, shaking my hand back and forth. Those kinds of dogs are crazy strong. One of my friends refers to it as "retard strength". Those are my friends words, not mine, so don't send me hate mail.


Back to J Lo. I think that the reason she needs a guard dog is because it's pretty clear that her husband would not be able to protect her from any intruder. From the looks of his photos, Marc Anthony needs to eat a sandwich. I can't imagine my arms being bigger than my husbands. My rule of thumb has always been, can this guy protect me if someone breaks into the house?

DMX Busted Again & Again & Yes Once Again

I know that this is probably shocking news but DMX was arrested again, in Miami. That's twice in one week. Or maybe that was last month. I've lost track now. He was trying to score some cocaine and weed today from an undercover officer. Why not? It's the weekend. Nothing like tweaking your brains out and then needing a little something to come down from it.

Here is a photo that I had of my bestie Matt Schulze with DMX. It was taken about 4 years ago. Gotta love those Kodak moments. That's all I'm gonna say about that.



Uma Is Getting Hitched Again

While Uma Thurman's cheating ex Ethan Hawk has traded down in the social circles to a nanny, Uma has traded up to a mega wealthy hedge funder. Uma is marrying a dude from across the pond, Arpad Busson. Arpad surprised Uma earlier this week with a mambo big rock and she said yes.

Arpad was in a relationship for a long time with the beautiful Elle Macpherson which produced 2 children. It has been rumored that Arpad, a devout Catholic, ended up not wanting to be married to a divorcee, (meaning Elle who is also Catholic) even though they had 2 kids together and that is why they broke up. I guess it makes more sense to him to marry a 2 time divorcee who was raised Buddhist?

Like I've always thought, love is love. Excuses are just fluff.


Mary Kate Put The Splat On Pratt

Mary Kate Olsen was on Letterman last night and said that she had gone to high school with Spencer "the evil one" Pratt and that he had played on their soccer team. I had always thought that she had gone to school in the valley, but I guess not? Mary Kate said, "He does not have a good temper." Ya, think? She also said , "He would walk off the field. He was like, me or the coach!"


The evil one spoke to US Magazine today with his response. He proably called them. He said, "I know I've made it in Hollywood when a famous troll is talking about me on Letterman. I don't really get why she'd use my name to get press for her little indie film that no one's going to see. She should probably focus more on not getting dressed in the dark than on me." He also said, "I forgive her, though. She's had to go through life as the less cute twin, which must be tough."

He's such a peach.


Brazil Is Fat Too

I've been thinking about people in Brazil calling Karolina Kurkova fat for the past few days. Do you think she's fat? Wasn't the model who died from anorexia in 2006 from Brazil? Remember that? There was a sudden outcry to the fashion industry for no more super-uber-thin models. Spain said "NO SKINNY BITCH'S ALLOWED ON THE RUNWAY!" Everyone was upset.



Even more so, Brazil was upset. The Brazilian tabloid O Dia ran a headline that read, "Dictatorship of skinny look kills a model." Ana Carolina Reston was 21 years old and weighed 88 pounds when she died in her hometown of Sao Paulo. How quickly you forget Brazil.


What's up with that? You know how much I love you Brazil, because I was just there not too long ago. I know that you have a reputation to uphold and all, with your Brazilian butts, Brazilian-cut bikinis, your Brazilian waxings and your Brazilian top-of-the-line plastic surgeons, but you also have Brazilian fatties. And I have the photo's to prove it. I didn't take them on purpose. Your fatties just got in the way of my camera. Truth.

So, here they are Brazil. I'm not trying to call you out, but you asked for this. If you think that Karolina Kurkova is a fat pig, I can only imagine what you said about me.

Beijo Ciao,

Hollywood Closing Up Shop For A While

The end is near. As of June 30, if the Screen Actors Guild does not get it together with their contracts, the strike will happen. It will take a miracle at this point for the strike not to happen. As much as I do believe in miracles, I don't see it happening in this case. They need to iron too much stuff out.

One of the things that needs to be changed along with DVD and internet sales is that SAG could be a little bit more fair to their actors. SAG makes soooo much money off of their bottom feeder actors that it's not funny. Top feeder actors who make $2 million, $10 million or $20 million or more a year are paying the same union dues of $6000 tops, as the bottom feeders who are making a few stinking commercials or having bit parts and getting paid at least $500 thousand a year. Do the math. How is that fair?


The cap on union dues is crazy and makes no sense to actors who do not make as much money every year as say, Julia Roberts. Variety reported today that George Clooney put his 2 cents in by saying "If someone makes $20 million, they pay $120,000 into the union." What that means is actors pay $6000 for every $1 million they make. It makes the playing field a hell of a lot more fair than it is now. George went on to say "That could go a long way in helping pensions and health care." D*mn straight it would.

But like I said, it's gonna take a "Miracle on 42nd Street" for this strike not to happen. Looks like we are all in for a whole year of Reality TV. Lord have mercy.

Madonna & Guy Going Going Gone

The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting today that Madonna has hired Sir Paul McCartney's D-I-V-O-R-C-E laywer. It seems the rumors are true, that Madonna and Guy Ritchie have been living apart and that Madonna wants to wait until after her "Sticky And Sweet" tour to announce their split. It's hard to hire a divorce lawyer and for us to not know somethings up though. Kind of like when we were all supposed to pretend, not to notice, when J Lo was jumping all over the stage with twins growing in her big belly.

It has also been said that Madonna & Guy did not have a pre-nup. I don't even know what to say about that. I just keep hearing Kanye and Jamie in my head singing "We want prenup. We want prenup". I guess it shows that Lady Madonna really believed in happily ever after.



On August 31, 2008 "Nike Plus" is holding "The Human Race 10k" in 25 cities around the world. Los Angeles is one of the 25 cities included in the race.

Nike+ is also sponsoring 3 different charities for this event. The WWF (Enviornmental Conservation) , ( The UN Refugee Agency) and the Livestrong Foundation. When you sign up for the race, you can choose which charity you want to support.


They even have training groups around LA that they can hook you up with so you can train with them every week, to get ready for the race. You don't have to do it alone!

You can sign up for the race at

My persoanl choice of charities would be LIVESTRONG. I'm all about kicking cancer's big fat ugly ass. GO TEAM!



From Russia To Robertson Via Paris

Once upon a time, there was a little girl living in Russia named Kira Plastinina, who wanted to be a princess. But when she grew up to the ripe age of 14 and came to her senses, she changed her mind. She decided to start her own clothing line and open her own boutiques around the world instead.

Actually, it was her dad who decided that. It helps to fulfill your dreams when your father is a billionaire. All kidding aside, it does help when you have parents who are visionaries and who do actually think that you may have some talent. But let's face it, it helps even more to start your own business at the age of 14 when your dad is a BILLIONAIRE.


Kira's dad Sergei Plastinin (I think that Kira just added an "A" to her last name) is the orange juice king of Russia. He was looking to diversify his business when he noticed Kira's sketch's of dresses that she used to doodle in her notebook. After showing her dad her favorite sketch's, Kira thinks that he showed them to some professionals because he came back to her and asked her if she wanted to start a business. Kira said "No way dad, that a stupid idea. I would hate that you jerk-off. You're so selfish". Just kidding. Kira didn't say that. She said, YES!!! YES!!! YES!!!



So, now we have the "Kira Plastinina" boutique on Robertson Blvd. with 4 more locations in LA to come. It is pink. Lots and lots of pink. She loooves pink. Kira is putting a round little "Kira pink" sofa into all of her boutiques as her signature. Most people will actually be able to afford to buy something on Robertson now. The prices at the store are not bad at all and her clothes are aimed towards teenagers with a non-teenager flair. Although, I don't know any non-teenagers who would be willing to rock hot-pants except for maybe Janice Dickinson. I'm not saying she should.


Another thing that Kira loooves is Paris Hilton. The story goes that Kira's dad paid Paris $2 million to attend one of her fashion shows. Hello Sergei, I am available to walk Kira's doggie for $2 million...and pick up the poopers.


The store is located at 116 S. Robertson Blvd.

The Enchanting Chateau Marmont

The Chateau Marmont is like a sultry old grande dame. She rests elegantly on the hillside, looking down on Sunset Boulevard and she has a bank vault full of secrets in which most of them, only she will ever know.


Some of the more famous tales include Led Zeppelin giving the guests a show one night by riding their motorcycles thru the lobby, Jim Morrison attempting to scale the outside of the hotel and of course John Belushi being found dead of a drug overdose in bungalow #3. (side note: I got to see him one time before he died when I was a little girl at a movie theater on Martha's Vinyard. He walked into the movie that I was seeing along with Carly Simon, after it had already started. He stood there in the middle of the isle scratching his head and I guess trying to figure out if he wanted to stay and watch it. They left after a few minutes. The only reason that I knew who he was as such a young'n was because I used to stay up late with my dad to watch "Saturday Night Live". Not a thrilling story but it was for a little girl.)


The Chateau is a playground for Rock n' Rollers, eccentrics, people who don't want the party to end and people who don't want to commit to a home of their own. Everybody knows this, right? People check-in and don't check out...for years. Most of the rooms along with bungalows and the penthouses come with a full kitchen. If you don't want to cook or don't know how to, they have an old-world-country-house-feeling dining room or you can eat in the ever so luscious garden. The food is good. If you're not interested in food, they also have a bar/lounge. The pool is not big. Don't expect to feel like your hanging out at a resort with a big honking pool. It's like the size of your pool in your own backyard, but it's really nice. It becomes home for a lot of people.


The Chateau has been around for a long time. Not European long but long by Hollywood standards. It was built in 1927 and opened in 1929 as an apartment building. In 1931 it re-opened as a hotel and has survived every single earthquake that we've had since then. Where are those kind of builders when you need 'em? I lived in a house that was built in the 30's when we had what I considered to be "THE BIG ONE" and my bedroom wall buckled. This is definitely where I want to be when we have the really "BIG ONE". If it doesn't make it through that one, at least I'd die in a nice place.



If you are coming to LA for a visit and can afford it, this is the place to stay. Andre Balazs (Uma Thurman's old boyfriend) has owned it since 1990 and has maintained it's integrity. It is beautiful but not in an opulent sort of way. Although the lobby and other parts of the hotel are Gothic, the rooms, suites and bungalows are no fuss. They are easy-going-cali-cool. It's comfy and makes you feel at home, only at home you probably wouldn't see Mick Jagger talking on his phone by the pool or be sleeping in a bed that Heath Ledger slept in. We miss you Heath.


If you should stay here, whatever the time of year, there is always something going on at the Chateau. You might see a photo shoot in progress (side note: The one and only Helmut Newton crashed his car into a wall there and was killed in 2004) or somebody recording music that will be forever famous someday or meet someone in the lobby who invites you to a little get together in Jude Law's bungalow. If you can't afford to stay there, you should at least stop by for lunch or dinner. If eating is not your thing, you can always drink to your hearts content.
