During times of darkness, our spirits are, if not lifted, at least distracted by gossip. Which is why celebrities keep being born (bless you, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, and Prince Harry) and why Popbitch keeps spewing out tidbits like the following, which the WOW Report has condensed somewhat for your convenience.
At a Japanese hotel recently, Elton John checked in as Lillian Lollipop, primarily because it amused him that the staff find it hard to pronounce. At other times, at other inns, he’s used the pseudonyms Lord Choc Ice, Lord Elpus, Binky Poodleclip, and Fanny Beaversnatchclit.
Which Desperate Housewives star used to deal drugs to fellow students at college? The star was so successful that they even had business cards printed with a pager number and company name, Little Buddha. (Note sex-neutral pronoun “they” – not necessarily a female.)
Alexander McQueen’s dressing room at his fashion show in a low-rent section of Paris featured an all-white decor – sofas, curtains, carpet, et al. When McQueen didn’t show up at the start of his show, an assistant eventually found him crawling on the floor of his dressing room, shouting, “Where the fuck is the coke? Who the hell put white carpet in my dressing room!”
What famous rocker, during a video shoot in the late ’80s, offered $100 to any member of the crew who would eat his coke-encrusted snot? One actually did but refused the money.
