It’s not so much that Jackson Harris brings anything new to the song, or that the song is that iconic to begin with (THERE. I SAID IT.), but I am a fool for a man in a tuxedo singing against the backdrop of the New York skyline. This cover’s not going to change your world, but it’s a sweetly swellegant way to start your weekend.

Among the hoards of A-list celebrities inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the annual Costume Institute Ball was the bloated pregnant reality star Kim Kardashian (who today has been mentioned a record number of times on the WOW Report). And according to Instagram, it was the first time she would come face to face with Madonna, who you’ll remember once collaborated with Kardashian’s suitor Kanye West on her Hard Candy album. Kardashian ‘grammed this photo and captioned it, “When we first MET @Madonna.” Get it? MET?
It seems so unlikely, but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were invited to dinner last night at Anna Wintour’s New York residence. Believe it? Kim appropriately wore the devil’s Prada, an outfit she Instagrammed, explaining that it was a “Prada kinda night! Styled by@rushkabergman BigLove.” West wore his best black leather pants. Really, this is already more than we thought we’d ever write about Kim and Kanye. (via usmagazine)
Marcello Baca just sent us this Cat Club flyer from our nightclubbing career back in 1980s New York, and asked “Any memory of this?” The answer, of course, is no, not a clue. But we’re sure it happened. We were never a good “host.” But we showed up.
