Moonlight smile

Last night, Operation Smile celebrated its 5th annual Smile Event at Skylight Studio in Manhattan's West Village. White drapery cascaded down from the ceiling. Heels were high. Table settings were ravaged after an exquisite meal courtesy of Phillipe Chow. Gowns were, you know, flowy and big-budget. Huge sums of money were raised at the event's auction, the proceeds of which benefit children around the world born with facial deformities.
It's hard to segue from here without sounding like a vapid asshole, but here goes: the crowd at the dinner after-party was comprised of beautiful people, among them, Nick Cannon (who manned the DJ booth), actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Donald Trump Jr. ("The Donald" was also in attendance), model Alexandra Richards, New York socialites Olivia Palermo, Tinsley Mortimer, Annabel Vartanian, and Kristian Laliberte, and supermodel Maggie Rizer. Oh, and something called a Mariah Carey showed up.
The gays went crazy. As we waited for her performance - which we either missed or didn't happen - we shielded ourselves from the solar power of her butterfly bauble, while drowning out the nearby "OMFG, it's her!" squeals with champagne.
We left about the time Cannon started spinning vintage Mariah - "Heartbreaker" wethinks - but not before scanning the room, and taking in the beauty of the space and its occupants. Philanthropy never looked this good.

Sales and number ones (47,036) by Sofia from Portugal

Album sales and number one albums are so relative. For instance, Sia sold 30,000 copies and she tops Billboard. Mariah sold more then that and lands a number 3. So, the question is, was Sia a hit because she topped the chart or was it a flop because she sold less?

Re: Diva down that never was, nikki USA (47,035) by Sofia from Portugal

Im with you. But I don't think Mariah's problem isn't promotion, we saw what happened to JLo. It's a problem with mentality. Today's music listeners are very impressive and brain washed young people that do know a Michael Jackson, a Chet Baker, a Etta James and believe some new acts are the bomb. I accept we must embrace progress and change but I a... read more
