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.

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!)]

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.

The Ultimate Madonna-Fan Video Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-06-02 at 4.04.53 PM(Video still via DR Madonna)

DR Madonna is back with a video that intends to encapsulate all the craziness behind being an obsessed Madonna fan.

I, therefore, am of course in it. I shot this so long ago David Bowie and Prince were still alive and I still owned that chain necklace from her first album shoot!

Keep reading to watch ...

You gotta love the amazing images captured by my buddy Bob Deutsch at the 1979 Tonys. When it comes to celeb candids from the early '60s into the '80s, Bob's got a million of 'em, and Playbill has quite a few right here.
