IN A CLASS All HER OWN: Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe By Andy Warhol (1962)

Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.” Marilyn Monroe 

Click here for VanityFair article on Marilyn Monroe 

Legends never die. This has never been more true, especially when speaking of the silver screen siren, Marilyn Monroe. 50 years after her departure from this earths soil, Marilyn is still gracing the covers of major fashion magazines and debuting in world renowned film festivals. Vanity Fair pays tribute to the fallen Goddess with exclusive outtakes from her last on-set photoshoot and The 2012 Cannes film festival, has chosen to share the spotlight with Marilyn, as they too celebrate the festivals 65th anniversary.

They say she was born a ward of the state bouncing from orphanage to orphanage, but if you ask me, she was a born a wonder to the world. An enigma in her own right. The offspring of seduction. The creator of fantasy and sexual suggestiveness. Given the name Norma Jeane Mortenson at birth; re-named Marilyn Monroe at her rebirth, draped in an air of devilish innocence, this single starlet lit up the Hollywood skies and the imagination of men and women everywhere. From the likes of icon Andy Warhol to baseball extraordinair, Joe DiMaggio, whom she shared a short lived engagement with before moving on to playwright, Arthur Miller, who wed in 1956; Mrs. Monroe wooed them all! Not even our 35th President stood a chance against this enticing hypnotist. Her aura was like a starving lioness on the prowl seeking whom she may devour… Not even Marilyn knew the effect that she had on her many admirers.

After her untimely death at the tender age of 36, the world grieved and have been mourning ever since. We are not celebrating the anniversary of her death so much as we are revering the existence of a LEGEND. Long live the one and only, queen of the screen, Marilyn Monroe.

Empire Beauty: Tribeca Film Festival 2011

Every year I attend the Tribeca Film Festivals Drive-in. I love this event! It’s one of the festivals FREE events held in the Financial building in Battery Park right on the Hudson. Its beautiful watching the sun set, watching the boats pass. This year it was like 23 degrees out there… it was survival of the fittest. I recommend taking a blanket with you cause it can get pretty nippy right by the water most years. Still, despite the punishing temperatures that snuck up on the crowd (…cause it started out nice), It’s one of those events where the atmosphere is completely cool… Strangers are conversing, taking turns watching each others things as alternating groups go to enjoy the free festivities before the main event. The themes always change so each year your left in anticipation awaiting the brand new line up. One year its Dirty Dancing, the next its Micheal Jacksons Thriller, or I’ve even experienced A Short Film Contest, where the audience were the judges…. This year it was the 80’s Classic Fame, The Muppets take Manhattan and a doc called when the drum is beating! You never know if your going to rub elbows with well know producers, directors or celebs! Not that people attend for this purpose, the fact is, most attend for the shared love of film and because everything down to the drinks and popcorn are free of course! Get more Behind the scenes and scoop inside!

My instant Buddies!!! They come baring gifts…Cant watch a film without Popcorn!

Vitamin water sponsored the event along with Timewarner! Lucky me I LOVE vitamin water~ Power-C ~ woooo whoooo!

This was the host Abe Goldfarb… He’s an actor, writer, director and  Burlesque personality, as well as, this years Tribeca Film Festivals Drive-in Host! He was super nice and had all around good energy.

‘The Twilight Zone’: Spiraling down the tunnle of WTF?

The other day I’m on the Perez Hilton site, right?……Well actually, it turned out to be more like a ‘Twilight Zone’ time portal. You remember the spiral one.. Yeah, just like that! Boo-ya-ka back to the story…..

About three years ago, I had a dream that would’ve had the most prestigious psychologist question my sanity. And of course… I thought it was just morbid and crazy enough to be the most brilliant idea ever! Okay, so not ever exactly, But it was twisted and it was different.

Caution: Before you read on, I would like to assure the public that I am very sensitive to the topic we are about to dive into. Still, the creative connotation of such a controversial concept and topic is Genius. It is because of how offensive, unlikely and unfathomable… even abominable the subject matter is- that makes it sinfully intriguing. This is just MY personal opinion. Continue reading
