Hello Superstar!, Dazzling Daphne, Ageing Gracefully

Ediesedgwick002Hello Superstar!

"When i woke up this photographer was humping me. It's like being a nympho... not nymhomaniac. What do you call those dead people? I can't remember. Huh? Necrophilia? I really was furious... I couldnt move!

Whatever it was in that drink... I was like a dead body... so it was like he was screwing a corpse! More twisted!

Wow... I never went back there."
-- Edie Sedgwick

Click HERE to watch a snippet from Ciao! Manhattan.

My newfound obsession with Edie Sedgwick, one of Andy Warhol's original superstars back in the 1960s, is starting to become unhealthy.

I must have spent no less than 20 hours in the past few days reading (and watching) everything there is to need about her.

I'm absolutely fascinated with her life; she's the classic poor little rich girl. Her fame was manufactured and she celebated her wealth on her sleeve, wearing all these fabulous clothes and jewelry until she was penniless. EdiesedgwickShe also went from top to rock bottom in such a fast time... eventually dying at age 28 from a drug overdose.

I hope it's NOT gonna be my story. I have to admit that for some strange reason, all roads lead to that direction.

Minus the drugs, the wealth and the self-destruct button... haha!

I found another video on You Tube featuring a better video of her with Velvet Underground singing "After Hours" in the background.

Click here to watch that video.

I LOOOOOOOOVE EDIE SEDGWICK.

I love her sooo much that I even sang and recorded something for you guys...

My singing talent can seriously give that William Hung a run for his money - I CAN'T SING!!!!!!!!

"If you close the door, the night could last forever. Keep the sunshine out and say hello to never. All the people are dancing and they're havin such fun... I wish it could happen to me. But if you close the door, I'd never have to see the day again."

DON'T LISTEN TO IT UNLESS YOU'VE SEEN EDIE'S VIDEO, OTHERWISE YOU WON'T UNDERSTAND WHERE I'M COMING FROM.

Isn't my drag queen voice lovely? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Dazzling Daphne

I went to the TV station early on Sunday eveing for another live interview. This time it's for a lifestyle-related show called "ANC Life" hosted by Daphne Osena-Paez.

One of my very good friends took pics of her tv screen. Thanks babe. I STILL OWE YOU DINNER (OR LUNCH) FOR GOD'S SAKE!!!!!

Tv001

If you're not from the land of the brown, l'exotique and the natives (aka Las Islas Filipinas), the picture below will give you an idea on what she looks like. I stole it from Herword because my maid left my camera batteries in the car. I wanted to kick my ass for NOT being able to camwhore. UGH!

DaphneDaphne and her assistant took a couple of pictures so hopefully I'll get it soon.

YOU HAVE TO SEE HOW GORGEOUS SHE IS!

Her presence swallowed me alive as soon as I arrived at the dressing room - the fantastic little black number, those yummy pearls, the gorgeous shoes, the Louis Vuitton Speedy, the Cartier Santos and of course, the HAIR!!!!! She was effortless chic at its finest; I was GOBSMACKED.

What are the chances of me being...

EFFORTLESS?

CHIC?

Probably slim to none. Perhaps effortless cheap.

I'm already having rashes with the thought of me being associated with those two words.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

On the set, I couldn't help but stare at Daphne's legs. THEY ARE SOOOO SKINNY AND LONG!!!!

No, I'm not a lesbian.

Her legs are just sooooo long and skinny and nice and her shoes are gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!

Why aren't my legs like that?

SHIT.

I'M A MAN!

I keep on forgetting that.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH!

Anyway, I think I did well on my interview based on the positive feedback I got from some of my very good friends (I'm doubting myself for not doubting their honesty - do i make any sense?) and readers who happened to saw the interview.

Beforetheinterview

I wish there are classes or courses that I can take to express myself articulately and eloquently in public. Getting tongue-tied all the time and not being able convert your thoughts into spoken words is sooo not funny.

Nevertheless.... I think I did good!!! YAY!

Tv002

Practice makes perfect... 2 live TV interviews in 2 weeks... what a great learning experience!

Ageing Gracefully

Lifearchives_1_1

I thought I'd take the yellow brick road once again down memory lane and look how I've changed over the years.

Judging from some of my photos from the past, the only thing that I can say at this point is....

MAN, I AM THE EPITOME OF THE PHRASE "AGEING GRACEFULLY".

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

The camera doesn't lie.

It's official: I get prettier the farther I run away from my birth certificate.

Heck, if this is an indicator of what my future will be, I can't wait to turn 75 and wear Oscar De La Renta.

Think how hideous I looked back then, how fabulous I am now and how gorgeous I'll be tomorrow.

Priceless.

I'll post some of my recent pictures so you won't get shocked by what you are about to see.

Ready?

SET!

GO!

These pictures were taken in Amanpulo Island during Gisele's hey day. All throughout that holiday, I was deluded into thinking my name is Gisele Bundchen with the help of my size 24 Earl Jeans and all.

Amanpulo

Man, I just remembered a funny story about the Dolce & Gabbana swarovski belt (the one that launched a million knock-offs) in that picture.

A couple of months after that photo was taken, I flew to London for a vacation.

I went clubbing on my last night in Londres and I arrived at the airport late and completely off my tits.

I dropped the belt to the floor (no closures, they were held with a velcro strap) while boarding the plane.

I was sooo drunk at that time. The only thing I wanted to do is to go to my seat and sleep.

After the captain did his speech, he went on about some lady who might have dropped a belt...

A few seconds later, he said something like:

"LAST CALL. IF NOBODY CLAIMS THIS VERY EXPENSIVE LOOKING **WOMEN'S** WITH HEAPS OF CRYSTALS, I'M GIVING IT TO MY WIFE"

Everyone on the plane laughed.

I looked at my waist and realized holy shit, my belt's gone missing!

You should have seen the look on my face as I gulped my gin tonic.

I didn't ask for my belt. I was soo embarassed to ask for it cause the captain said it's a women's belt.

That's when I realized, shit, I have pride!

Honestly speaking, these days, give me designer goods anytime and I'll throw my pride down the river.

Moving on...

One of the benefits of being skinny? A fantastic jawline.

Sadly, that jawline is GONE. GONE, GONE, GONE, GONE, GONE.

Jawline

This picture is just plain ugly. I'm at a loss on what to say.

Plainugly

This is me having a Zoolander moment in Bali, Indonesia 5 years ago. This photo was taken at friggin 9 in the morning on my way to Ubud Market. Oh the memories.... I was too drunk on the photo.

THIS IS THINSPIRATION. HOW I MISS THOSE DAYS WHEN I WAS SKELETAL.

Thinspiration_1

IT'S A SHAME MY MEMBERSHIP EXPIRED WITH ANOREXICS ANONYMOUS. THE MOTHER FUCKERS AT ANA EXPELLED ME AS SOON AS HIT 80 POUNDS.

Yep, even my US$7,000 Gucci python pants, which is size 38, was fuckin BAGGY on me. THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN 6 FUCKIN YEARS AGO!!!!

Guccipython_1

I got a ton of mileage from those pants.

I wore them fucking everywhere.

Even to Trafalgar Square, just to be covered with pigeon shit.

Python

I guess I used to smile lots back when I was younger.

This photo was taken about 7 or 8 years ago at a bus stop in Reykjavik.

Iceland

ENOUGH OF THIS FUGLY NONSENSE.

ERASE ERASE ERASE ERASE ERASE.

PURGE, PURGE, PURGE, PURGE, PURGE.

The ugly duckling turned into a swan indeed.

Touch my bum... this is life!
