*Ring Ring Ring* The beautiful, the legendary, the queen of glamp, Manila Luzon is taking calls on this week’s new episode of Ring My Bell! PS. We got a new Ring My Bell table! YAY! New episodes of Ring My Bell every Thursday on WOWPresents.
To celebrate the release of her lastest single “For Once in My Life,” former Spice Girl and America’s Got Talent judge Mel B went club-hopping in WeHo, stopping by Rage, Here Lounge, and Eleven for a quick meet-and-greet and bump-and-grind. I caught up with her at Eleven, where we had a quickie chat in the VIP room. Watch below. Yay! Love her!
SPOILER ALERTS! SPOILER ALERTS! DON”T READ ANY FURTHER UNTIL YOU’VE CAUGHT UP! Last night was a mixed bag, wasn’t it? I was devastated when Queenie turned Delphine over to the Marie. I really thought they were becoming friends, especially after their adorable outing to the fast food drive-through. And I’m still not down with the Axe Man. TOO MANY PLOTS, RYAN! It’s his downfall! He always trie to juggle one too many chainsaws and it hurts the show. I like Madison, Kyle, and Zoe in a threesome, I guess, but I hope he learns to speak soon. His growling is getting on my nerves. What did you think of last night’s episode?
I know you’ve been in a blind panic, thinking to yourselves “the holiday’s are here ALREADY? What am I going to get James St James?” Well, take a deep breath. Relax. I’ve got you covered. Just get me this stunning Ana Khouri 18 karat rose gold and diamond hand bracelet (or “knucklet”) from the Barneys Christmas catalogue. Lovely, isn’t it? It’s only $21,200 – very affordable in these tough economic times. Perfect for everyday wear as well as evenings out on the town. Of course, mother always said that rose gold was vulgar, so perhaps you could have one custom made in platinum? That wouldn’t be too much of a bother, would it? Thanks, doll. Oh, and Merry Christmas!
Awww. My poor baby. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Aaron’s in a bit of a financial pickle. It appears the sum total of his assets a meagre $8,232.16, while his liabilities total $2,204,854 (including a $31,166 AmEx bill). He also owes $1,368,140 mil to the IRS.
Here’s the kicker, though. Even though Aaron is a pop star (of sorts) and has been touring since the early aughts, Aaron lists his average monthly income at just $1,998.75. As for his monthly expense: $2,005, which includes $600 for food, $150 for clothes, and $65 for hygiene. He’s currently living with a family member.
And says TMZ: “Aaron is not filing for Bankruptcy light, which is often used to reorganize debts. He’s going for the whole, Chapter 7 enchilada, which means the creditors will eat it. (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
Bright Light Bright Light is the music moniker of Rod Thomas, a super-talented Welsh-born musican who cranks out blissfully danceable 90s-infused-Brit-flavored pop music, and I loooove him. He’s been fawned over by Elton John (who’s a big fan), snagged admirers like Michael Stipe, collaborates with Scissor Sister Del Marquis, and he’s toured Europe with Ellie Goulding. And the music? Very Erasure meets M People meets Robyn, with lots of sentimental sweeping melodies and bad-ass booty-thumping beats.
ANYWAY… Rod debuted BrightLightx2′s latest video in NYC night before last (“In Your Care” — it’s gorgeous; see it below), and in less than two weeks he’ll kick off his first tour of the West Coast. (He also DJs and is known in his current home of London for the 90s-fueled thumper “Another Night” at Vogue Fabrics in Dalston.) First off he hits the Bootleg in L.A. on Dec. 3rd, then Cafe du Nord in San Francisco on Dec. 5th, he’ll DJ at Dickslap at the Eagle in SF on Dec. 7th, then hit the Nark Party at Seattle’s Neighbors on Dec. 13th. Go see him! You heart and soul-loving soul will thank you.
Watch below, and then go get into my faves of his past tunes, “Disco Moment,” “Feel It” and the sublime “Cry at Films.” And pre-order his new EP, Make Me Believe in Hope, due this weekend! And follow Rod/BLBL on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. Plus, he’s handsome as all get out and just a dear. XOXOX!!!
“I put so much love into my music, into my shows, I make it all for you. I’ll never understand the overflow of hate sent my way,” Gaga posted on her Twitter and Facebook yesterday, just hours after “ARTPOP” was crowned the No. 1 album in the country. “Or maybe thats what entertainment is now. It’s more fun to point & laugh than appreciate the artist. I’ll keep rehearsing my steps #showbiz” You know, I have to agree, and it seems like it’s encouraged too. Personally, I appreciate the effort but all celebs get slammed regularly – the ones who wear meat dresses and sing about “Applause” even more so, it seems. Thick skin is necessary these days, but it must get old when you are working your ass off. NOTE: At least the comments on this post aren’t adding to the negativity… oh, wait!? (via Twitter)
