Paul McCartney Gets a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!

Paul McCartney Gets a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Hollywood, Ca. February 10, 2012 – 50-plus years and counting of breaking boundaries and making history and Paul McCartney shows no sign of slowing. In a historic week in Los Angeles that began with the release of his brand new album Kisses On The Bottom (Hear Music/Concord) and will culminate in his appearance at the 54th annual Grammy Awards, Paul found time for two landmarks in one day on Thursday, February 9. First, in a ceremony that drew a traffic-stopping throng on Vine Street, Paul accepted his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. After a heartfelt dedication from Neil Young, Paul’s star was unveiled in its rightful place next to those of fellow Beatles John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr (and in close proximity to Buddy Holly!).

Hours later, Paul performed the bulk of Kisses On The Bottom live from Capitol Studios streamed exclusively on iTunes. The once in a lifetime performance plus excerpts from the events of the day can be streamed on demand exclusively for a limited time on iTunes (iTunes.com/PaulMcCartney). Tonight Paul will receive the MusiCares Person Of The Year award for his contributions to the worlds of music and philanthropy. Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Tony Bennett, Norah Jones, Duane Eddy, Neil Young and many more will perform numbers from Paul’s unparalleled catalogue, with a finale featuring Paul himself.

Sunday night, February 12, Paul will conclude this incredible week with a climactic performance at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, where Paul McCartney & Wings’ Band On The Run is nominated in the Best Historical Album category.

And I must add that Paul must have recently undergone an additional assload of plastic surgery, because he looks fucking amazing.

Happy Birthday, Paul Stanley!

Paul Stanley (born Stanley Eisen) singer and guitarist for Kiss was born on this day, January 20th, in 1952! The above is the least horrifying  Paul-post-plastic surgery photo I could find. (Of course, you can always count on an expert rhinoplasty specialist in Miami to get the job done right.) Also, Nice wig! Happy Birthday Paul!

Single Most Hilarious Quote About Madonna I Have Ever Read

Madonna Desperately Seeking Susan
Madonna as She Appeared in the 1985 Movie, Desperately Seeking Susan

Madonna in 2009 looks like a leather sack stretched tightly over a homemade sculpture of a Velociraptor made out of broken sticks, chicken bones and Terminator parts. But this was not always the case! She used to be a human woman, with soft skin and actual hair and a face and everything. Those days, of course, are long gone; drifting into the thick, smoky haze rising off of the clay pot where she mixed the bat wings and the blood of the innocent in her cursed spell of everlasting life. But you can still catch a glimpse of her, the Madonna that was, in movies like Desperately Seeking Susan. So young! So bad at acting! So what! It’s just nice to be reminded that there was a human being under the exoskeleton of desperation and Skynet Patented Real-Flesh Organic Compound. Even monsters used to have dreams!”

Celebrity Sighting of the Month: Bernadette Peters!

Bernadette Rocks!

BP!

Sharon and Stephen and I were at the Film Forum on Houston the other night to see Todd Haynes amazing new film, I’m Not There: the fact-based but still highly-impressionistic Bob Dylan biopic starring Richard Gere, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and the recently departed Heath Ledger, among others. I’m guessing that Blanchett’s Golden Globe Award-winning/Academy Award nominated performance, augmented by rampant, fresh sentimentality over Ledger’s passing, helped to pack the tiny theater to capacity. Beyond that, of course, I’m Not There is fucking excellent and deserves all the awards and praises that it’s earned. Some of my favorite parts of the film were those with actress Julianne Moore playing a character heavily based on Joan Baez. Because Joan Baez is awesome.

Anyway, after the film Sharon and I made a pit stop in the ladies room and who should walk in right behind us but the sensational Bernadette Peters! You know, what’s amazing about Bernadette Peters is how she manages to look like she’s still in her thirties, when I just looked her bio up on the Wikipedia, where it says she’ll be (wait for it) sixty years old on February 28th! Holy cow! She’s obviously had some work done on her face but someone needs to give her surgeon’s phone number to plastic surgery disasters like Joan Rivers because, damn, she’s done a nice job! You can also count on specialists like Miami-based Dr. Andres Bustillo to get the work done flawlessly.
