Marilyn Monroe would have been 88 years old today. (I was going to post a video of Jimmy James singing “Happy Birthday” as MM, but couldn't find one!)

Lady-gaga-madonna

Luckily, this "Madonna" autograph comes with a certificate of authenticity. This case of mistaken identity reminds me of the time when a (famous) picture of Madonna from her 1992 Sex book was thought to be a long-lost Marilyn Monroe nude...and was authenticated by a Marilyn Monroe expert!

Art's In Pop Culture In Me: An Interview With Street Artist Pegasus Comments (0)

Prince-Harry-nudePrince Harry: Private servant.

I'm a fan of street art, so yes, I was pissed I didn't find any Banksys to steal (or buy for a song) during his NYC residency. But I have had a Mr. Brainwash run-in/own some of his stuff, once pried a piece of an Invader mosaic from a local bridge, and have found two stunning works by Ty Cummings on the street where they were left for—presumably—me to rescue.

So I was intrigued by the work of Pegasus, which I think merges pop culture icons in ways that are more playful and quirkier than Brainwash's cynical-feeling concoctions. If you're wondering what I mean, look no further than "Strike a Pose," his clever, sweet marriage of Cher, Madonna, Janet Jackson, David Bowie, Elvis Presley...and maybe more:

PegasusThe ultimate celebrity mixer.

Unlike all of the artists I've mentioned, Pegasus is highly reachable...and reacted favorably to my interview request. What follows is my chat with this emerging artist, whose work is destined to decorate my walls one day...

For the first time in years, I'd decided to skip The Hollywood Show in L.A., held at the painfully glamorous Westin LAX (a poignant backdrop for a room filled with celebs whose careers have had more take-offs and landings than Jet Blue)—I didn't want to spend the cash and didn't think I'd miss the guest list this time. At the last minute, I splurged and went, which meant I had only a couple of original photos for the stars to ooh and ahh over before signing.

When I first walked in, there was an immediate difference between this and previous shows...a huge crowd! A long line was queued up for the cast of Sons of Anarchy, including star attraction Katey Sagal. With that show, Married...With Children and Futurama, she had probably a third of the attendees drooling over her. I skipped her.

The room was hot as hell (flop sweat is a great look for picture day) and crowded, thanks in part to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards, who had a large crew documenting her every move.

But I survived, as all of the stars there had.

Room With A View: My '80s Walls Comments (4)

80s-room
I didn't come out until the very end of high school, but I was slowly, inexorably working my way out via the décor of my room. I started slowly. The first poster I had up was Cyndi Lauper by Lynn Goldsmith. I'd bought it in Hawaii, but it had gotten a little crushed, so it was waved through the entire poster. I learned quickly that posters have souls.

Marilyn-Monroe-Hollywood-sign

I'd kill to have this—it's the "H" from the original 1923 "HOLLYWOODLAND" sign, now featuring an original Gentlemen Prefer Blondes mural. (I kind of hate that the original artifact was painted on, and so recently—within the past few years, when we all know better about preservation and the like. But there's no denying the end product looks great.)
