The Madonna Pop-Up Store is open from now through Sunday at 8 p.m. in NYC, at 430 W. 15th St. The petite shop is chock-full of Madame X (and Like a Prayer 30th-anniversary) merch. I would bet anything Madonna randomly shows up.

I've covered the way-too-fun Chiller Theatre autograph show in Parsippany, New Jersey, many times in the past. In fact, my first-ever autograph show was Chiller — here.

I kind of wanted to attend again this weekend, but it's a trip and I was only interested in a few stars, so I skipped.

Now, my pal Mike Summers, who went, reports that the entire hotel and surrounding grounds had to be evacuated this afternoon due to what everyone was first told was a bomb threat ...

The Genuine Article: A Review Of CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? Comments (0)

Lee Israel (1939-2014) was a noted biographer who turned to selling forged literary letters — and famously got caught. Though she didn't live to see the film based on her confessional memoir, she couldn't have asked for a better or more empathy-generating actress than Melissa McCarthy to portray her. McCarthy (who replaced Julianne Moore) has a built-in charm that counteracts Israel's reputed anti-charm. Even though McCarthy studiously tamps down her appealingly broad persona, she can't help but make Israel into a sympathetic curmudgeon, albeit one who is portrayed in the script as brusque, rude and disloyal to everyone but her ailing cat.

In spite of those traits, we can't help but root for the disheveled wordsmith who can't compete with the Tom Clancys of the world.

Heritage Auctions is offering the earliest-known Britney Spears autograph — from a first-grade yearbook — for $3,000.

No telling if it will fetch that, or more, but I also have a pretty early example.

Gus Kenworthy Was Team Shangela & Other Things I Learned At His Samsung Event With Nigel Sylvester Comments (0)

****IMG_4359_newGus before the event (All images by Gus Kenworthy)

****IMG_4367 copy_newMy pal Mark Greeno kindly alerted me to a Gus Kenworthy event moments before it was happening, so I tore down to Samsung 837 in the Meatpacking District to see what was happening.

Gus is a rare gay guy who talks about skiing some slopes without it meaning drugs, and he's also — as expected — 100% sweet. The event was messy! I arrived and got several different answers as to where to stand and what to do. I was even mistaken for Samsung staff and handed an official wristband IDing me as such. Okay!

Eventually, things became more clear, and Gus did a quick walk-through past us. I introduced myself (his boyfriend Matt Wilkas is currently attached to star in the Boy Culture Web series) ****IMG_4377_new and took some snaps of him with a few superfans, including a couple of guys who didn't look too shabby, even next to Gus! One guy, who later told me the day was one of the highlights of his life as a gay man and as an athlete, wisely had Gus sign some skis, which he happily did.
