FP_3660171_ICON_Isaak_Chris_092209

Singer, actor, interviewer, artist…. Chris Isaak is back on this site! I know it’s been a while, so sorry, but he’s been out of the country. Isaak has made his way to Australia, where they LOVE him almost as much as I do.

These are pics of him performing today (September 22) in Sydney at the State Theatre.

The last time he was in Sydney, on September 11, was for a magazine launch.

Isaak flew into Australia on Friday ahead of his tour and was the star guest at ACP magazines launch of the three-day festival Magazines Go Live at the Royal Hall of Industries on Friday night.

Isaak said he was delighted to be in Sydney before opening a set with his song Wicked Game.

“This is one of the few places I come to because I want to and it’s not court ordered in any way,” the US heartthrob said with many female admirers watching on.

He certainly knows how to work the camera, doesn’t he?

Lady Gaga's BIG question

fp_3062262_icon_lady_gaga_052509

Singer/performer/personality, Lady Gaga got the best of an interviewer in Australia.  If you go to the video here it seems she may (or may not) be having some fun with the ‘reporter’. Right after explaining that every moment in her life is a performance, she answers a question about what she would look for in a partner. A big… um, well, … yeah….

She says this completely straight faced, but you can almost tell she’s screwing with the girl. And I love it. Did the interviewer really think that a woman who has become famous by being off the beaten path, sexually outrageous, all while being more odd than sexual would really talk about a man bringing her flowers or having a ‘great personality’? Pah-leaze

She may be brash, odd, or a glorified club girl, but I find her extremely refreshing. Whether this is who she really is, her performance act, or whatever… she says things in ways she’s ‘not supposed to’ and I love it ;-)

Lady Gaga doesn't lip sync in Sydney

fp_3051907_icon_lady_gaga_052209

Hold on Australia, Lady Gaga took her sparkly toilet brush show on in Sydney!   Girlfriend knows one thing for sure, how to put on a show.   Don’t you worry though, no matter how physical she gets on stage, she will never lip sync.

She says, “I would never even think about it (lip syncing). The whole point to me is, if you’re gonna be number one, you better really be f***ing number one. If you’re gonna be on top, you better be able to do all those things, because it’s a real privilege to be able to make music everyday, and I get away with a lot.

“Andy Warhol says art is what you can get away with, and I get away with a lot with my music and my clothes, and I work really hard so I could truly be a real artist for all my fans.That’s really f***ed up when you lip-synch.”

That’s awfully refreshing to hear.  I mean, when was the last time you went to a pop concert and they actually sang?  The whole show?

Russell Brand, Kissing Comic

90319l1_brand_r_b_gr_01

Hello, I’m famous, care to make out? Alright.

I have a feeling that’s how the conversation went today in Sydney.

A girl named Emma, was waiting for a ferry (not Russell) when Russell showed up with his massive hair, sunglasses and see through shirt, and chatted a while, joking with the girl and them ended up kissing her. Hello there.

Emma seemed to be having a good time, only to realize at one point just what was going on, putting her head in her hands and being consoled by Russell Brand the kisser himself. I guess that just shows what a good sense of humor can do (well, that and being famous).

Can you imagine the story she told everyone when she got to wherever she was going! No one believed her I’m sure.

I admit, I have a crush on Russell Brand and have NO IDEA what I would do if he just randomly showed up and started talking to me as I was waiting for something. I doubt I’d even be able to form sentences let alone smooch up on him.

What would YOU do if someone famous chatted you up with no one else around?

Zac Efron, Taylor Swift Premier in Sydney

90311l1_efron_z_b_gr_08

17 Again, starring Zac Efron and Matthew Perry (yay!), premiered in Sydney!  Um I don’t know why Taylor Swift was that the premier.  She’s not listed as an actress in the movie.  Am I missing something?  Maybe the studio just wanted another famous face at the premier.  They do that sometimes.

Zac took time to sign some autographs as well.  Getting ink all over his hand it looks like.

But where oh where is my Matthew Perry?!?!
