Hoff...World?

David Hasselhoff.
Aware of his camp appeal or just delusional?
He may not even know himself.

For those of you in the UK*, there's Hoffworld. I recommend steering clear from the chest hair. Don't say I didn't warn you. It's the least I can do since my various Hoff posts may only be adding feul to the fire.

*I was able to access it from the US earlier this evening, but according to the website, it is now only accessible from the UK.

Music Makes The People Come Together

Beyonce's fans petition to reshoot her latest video. It looks like she was channeling a Shakira video and then decided to mix in some naughty home video bits with Jay-Z.

Madonna fans petition for more U.S. radio play.

And while on the subject...
My summer has come and (almost) gone without attending The Confessions Tour. I was warned that I might regret not going. This article makes me wonder if I should have seen Madonna in concert before it is too late. (Although, I don't know if a time will come when she will cease to rock pop.)

Even though NBC is broadcasting the concert later this Fall, surely network television will not capture all the essential nuances (crucifixtion reenactments, anti-Bush slurs, crotch grabbing and random dry humping) that make up a Madonna performance. It should be interesting to see what demographic the commercials are geared towards. I'm sure the show will be commercial heavy with a price tag like this.

Ahoy

Warholic

He Lives:
Jeremy Kost's RoidRage brings back a bit of Warhol flavor to the current paparazzi scene.

The Andy Warholas take Manhattan by storm. I wonder how much they paid for their wigs...probably not
$10, 800.00.

For those of us who do not have 11G to burn, Loop offers a much more affordable piece of the icon.


ReadyMade gives guidance on how you can acheive a Warhol.

Don't You Know Who I Am? The Hoff.

Don't Hassel The Hoff. He's too busy being in love with himself. Or getting into bizarre shaving accidents. Or beating his wife. Or being self important. What a Hasshole!

Check out his video, "Jump in My Car." He's actually rocking a "Don't Hassel the Hoff" shirt in the video. It's a painfully humorous joyride in which KITT pulls himself out of his european retirement and whores himself out for a bit of spotlight. Must be a publicity stunt. Stay tuned for some serious white man overbite action happening at the 1 minute mark.

How is this man a judge on a talent show? Oh yeah. The Germans. Or Maybe he's Satan? In which case, yeah. I wouldn't Hassel the Hoff.
