He Wrote The Book On Duran Duran Comments (0)

Andrew “Durandy” Golub, the author of The Music Between Us: Concert Ads of Duran Duran, also happens to be sitting on the world's largest Duran Duran archive — so you know the book he created was done so with something more alarming than mere love.

The hardcover, 107-page book will run you $45 plus shipping, but it's chock-full of rare print ads and posters, including for some items that never wound up happening.

As an ephemera addict, I couldn't take my eyes off of this, not even while dancing on the sand.

The Most Amazing Madonna Jacket EVER Comments (0)

DSCN4344(All images by Bill Branch)

Bill Branch sent me these eye-popping shots of his masterpiece, a Madonna-themed jacket he created in 1990 to wear to the Washington, D.C., Blond Ambition World Tour stop.

He recalls, “I wore it once for 10 minutes.”

He did try to get Kurt Loder to show it to Madonna at the Truth or Dare premiere in NYC, but Loder didn't want the responsibility.

It was later displayed on his wall, but for most of its career — like Barry Manilow — it has bided its time in the closet.

Spectacular, iddinit?!

No, Mrs. Bublé, Michael's Not Gé Comments (0)

Michael Bublé chatted with PrideSource, talking up his gay fans—and how his wife assumed he was gay when they met.

He gushed about his LGBTQ fans:

The truth is, I don't think I could've given them as much joy as they've given me. I'm in a business where, as you can imagine, I'm surrounded by the gay community. I mean, that's just my life. I'm an artist, and so I'm surrounded by other artists. And everyone from my hair stylist who lives with me on the road to (my stylist) Jeff Kim, who puts me in my suits every day - I mean, god, the question isn't who's gay? The question is, who isn't? (Laughs) And by the way, the ones that seem the most macho, they're probably gay.

As for his wife's little mistake:

Yes, she walked in this room with a man, and the man was so good lookin' that he made Brad Pitt look dumpy, so I assumed they were together. I naturally assumed that this was her boyfriend or her husband, so I refused to hit on her. And listen, it didn't help that she didn't speak English either at the time. Not a word. But the more I drank that night, the more brazen I got about trying to find out what the situation was between them. Finally, after two hours - and I don't know how many shots and glasses of whiskey - I finally said, (effects a drunk slur) "You guys are such a beautiful couple," and he said, "We're not together." He said, "She came because she likes you." And at the same time, she was on the phone texting her mom saying, "Oh my god, Michael Bublé is all over my friend. He's so gay."

They Had This Time (52 Years!) Together Comments (0)

My friend Bob Deutsch has the best celebrity-encounter stories ever, even better because his took place from the early '60s through the early '80s. He always had a special attachment to Carol Burnett, taking her picture many times on the street and at various shows, and even being asked into her apartment once to gift her with some baby items right after she had given birth.

As he explains above, when he was invited to go backstage last night in NYC at Carol's one-woman show (I saw it again—still great! Plus she sang a few bars of her theme song at the end and talked about her Twilight Zone), he was able to get a photo with her 52 years after the last one.

I love stuff like this, and I think Carol Burnett has to be the most accommodating and fan-friendliest celebrity ever, no? Then again, Bob's such a mensch I can't really imagine any star turning him down.

Chelsea Handler Finally Cuts Madonna Some Slack, Lola Reacts To Mom's On-Screen B.J. Demo Comments (0)

Friday the 26th was the long-awaited 25th-anniversary screening of a pristine, restored print of Truth or Dare at Metrograph in NYC, featuring commentary by director Alek Keshishian (who also co-wrote W.E. with Madonna 20 years after they first met) and moderated by noted Madonna-basher Chelsea Handler.

IMG_9169*** copyBlack-and-white ... and would Madonna get read all over?!

I hardly knew what to expect, considering the week's other Truth or Dare screening—at MoMA on Wednesday—had attracted Madonna herself.

[If you live in NYC and haven't been to Metrograph, do go. It's a lovely, chic theater that offers eclectic movies, including classics, midnight movies, cult hits, first-run arthouse fare and, well, Space Jam. (Look who's snarking—I'm paying $15 to watch Body of Evidence there next week!)]

IMG_9155***Team Quantico

Before Truth or Dare started, my friend Raj noticed in the lobby two of the female stars of Quantico (Yasmine Al Massri IMG_9248***and Johanna Braddy) with their dates, so I was able to get some quick pics of them. Braddy was turning 4 years old when Truth or Dare was released, BTW.

The guy who came out to intro the movie had the hipster vibe down pat, shrugging his way through a few lines about how the movie was part of a series of Madonna's masterpieces, then telling us the place has a restaurant upstairs if we ... whatever. It was actually very funny, and not the typical anal-retentive speech given at fledgling moviehouses about upcoming events.

Watching the movie for the second time in 48 hours was odd because ... it totally didn't bore me. I found new things to focus on, and even spotted the late Jack Larson in/near the infamous Kevin Costner scene.

As the movie wore on, though, I was nervous because I'd been hoping to get some shots of Chelsea and Alek before or after. Luckily, one of my companions, Anthony (who designed my book) was monitoring Facebook and noted that fellow fanboy Michael Da Rocha had posted a pic with Chelsea from outside. That was my cue to hit the lobby, where I found Chelsea and Alek holding court at the bar with a gaggle of familiar fan faces.
