On Friday, September 28, I celebrated my humble lil’ birthday that ended with a “0” with a grand celebration at Fontana’s Bar on New York’s Lower East Side. Man, these pics are less than comprehensive. Unfortunately, some guests appear in no pics, while other images were so dark that I had to do major digital enhancing.
Likewise, sigh… many that promised to show up… simply didn’t. Par for the course, as we all recognize, and so I shall revel in the good and positive, and understand that you’ve got to dismiss regrets and be grown up enough to accept that some folks you thought were by your side for the long term have, in fact, turned a page. And so shall I. Such is life. So now, let’s make a joyful noise for the wondrous celebration that ensued. *
What a wondrous birthday surprise I had Friday night, at my “Five Decades of Decadence” party at Fontana’s on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
Pals Christa and Donna helped arrange a visit from my beloved Kristina, all the way from Los Angeles. She entered the room through a dramatic velvet curtain, looking like a brunette Marilyn Monroe, with her arms outstretched and a big grin.
Here’s the play by play below as I take it all in. This is actually not only pretty damn amusing to me, but endearing… as shock turns to tears and one gargantuan smile. Many more pics from the night to come. *
These are the kind of offers I’m going to be getting in the mail now? Seriously? Suddenly, AARP doesn’t look so degrading. *
Geez, God certainly aligned the galaxy for artistic creativity on September 16. Three biggies: Blues great B.B. King was born this day in 1925; Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Richard Marx came along in 1963; and vocalist Marc Anthony in 1968. And bringing up the newer generation, Jonas Brothers’ Nick Jonas dropped from the sky in 1992. Mercy, that’s a lot of talent in one blessed day… Let the starfucker photos rain down! *
Our lady Sheena Easton was born today, April 27, 1959. Looking fine for 53. In honor of the late Dick Clark, here are three videos from his iconic American Bandstand, with Sheena appearing. Sweet! *

Happy Birthday to the greatest singer in all the world: Celine Dion turns 44 today! Here’s a nice synopsis of her career accomplishments. She truly looks better with every passing year.
Justin Bieber turned 18 yesterday, March 1. As an adult, let the spoils begin! Any moment now, the Biebs should begin decimating his teen-age role model image, requisite for celebs.
Look at Miley Cyrus, who devolved from sweet Disney heroine into trailer trash trollop, posing near-nude for Vanity Fair, pole dancing in live performances and admitting to an ongoing love affair with weed. Fabulous!
I’d be happy enough if the castrada singer would just come out of the closet—god forbid he goes the slut route, a la Lindsay Lohan, and starts sharing his lil’ winkie via Twitter or exposes a YouTube video attempting to have sex. Ewwwww.
Admittedly, Justin is beating the odds of most teen idols, with two years of success under his belt and no apparent peak in sight. That in itself is pretty remarkable. Even more so: the fact that he’s ugly as sin and continues to make little girls swoon.
During an appearance Thursday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Bieber got a birthday surprise: a $100,000 Fisker Karma, “the first true electric luxury vehicle,” from his manager Scooter Braun and Usher, who has no doubt bankrolled millions after getting the little squirt signed in the States in 2009. So perhaps it’s going to be the Mel Gibson story, driving drunk. God knows he’d be more interesting as a bad boy; perhaps he’ll even grow dreadlocks… Can’t wait to see! *
