MORE DUTY LESS BOOTY ANTHONY WEINER?



Stevie Nicks



KICKS --- Every so often a new artist comes along that so dazzles, you just know a new star is beginning to burn. Such is the case with New York's Dayme, whose originality is just so welcomed and needed these days. With a tool box featuring references from Stevie Nicks, Aerosmith, Joan Jett, and Chrissie Hynde, her originality is simply sensational; referencing a time when artists actually wrote their own material and created an originality on stage. Her debut album Fusion Sundae (Imperfect Records) is set for release in early-July. She's worked with Jay Z and has Jett-manager/producer Kenny Laguna as a supporter. Says Laguna, “When I first met Dayme, I was struck by her great beauty and charisma. As I got to know her, I was impressed with her talent. But, the qualities I feel will take her all the way is her work ethic, her tenacity, and her persistence. She is a winner.” Says the artist herself about her goals and dreams, she said, “Stay true to who you are.” You can catch her next live on Friday, June 17 at Alphabet Lounge (104 Avenue C) and July 2 at Tammany Hall (152 Orchard Street).Go see her and I believe you'll see the next definitive and significant artist in rock 'n roll.

Blair Underwood



ANOTHER EVENT? --- As I've noted here in these very pages; even though I continued to watch NBC's The Event right up to its rather riveting finale two weeks back; I got the feeling I was one of the last ones to do so. When the show debuted last September it was touted as the Peacock's great-hope. A stellar cast (Jason Ritter; Hal Holbrook; Blair Underwood); a terrific pedigree of writers and producers … everything seemed perfect. But, with a terrifically slow start of episodes, awful reviews, the show soon disappeared from view, then had a multi-month hiatus and finally returned this February … with a surprising strong slew of shows. Many thought that it was over and done with and called the show damaged goods. The whole escapade reminded me of the history of the show Fast Forward (on ABC), which last year was championed as the next big thing. Me, I thought it was very artfully done … but, after another one of those awful hiatus periods, the show returned stronger than ever … but, was canceled anyway. The Event's finale was surprisingly strong; with the alien planet finally appearing in the sky and The President's wife whispering, when asked by her young song what it was: saying it was home! Wow .. what a moment! But, then NBC canceled it … but, yesterday came news that NBC's cable net sister station Syfy may try to resurrect it. These cable-nets stations have come to be seen within the TV industry as a great second-chance. NBC's Law & Order: Criminal Intent moved to USA several years back and continued to stay strong; so strong that NBC now shows the episode several weeks later on their own station. As far as The Event goes the jury is still out. Reading many of the posts on the possible rise-from-the-dead scenario, it's clear the show had many ardent supporters. But, would the net be able to afford the obvious-high costs for the cast? Let's face it; you get what you pay for. Me? I'd love to see it, but I'm definitely a comic-con, sci-fi type of guy. What do you think?

Coldplay



COLDPLAY BACK --- I don't know about you, but the title of the new song from Coldplay just slays me: "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall." I haven't yet heard it, but, I will have by Monday, but, what a title! Love those guys. The last great band for sure.


****



BEU IF YOU WILL --- We attended a listening party last evening for the Beu Sisters (http://www.beusisters.com/) at karaoke-palace Planet Rose on Avenue A, for their upcoming CD Beu Tiful-Volume 1, on Beach Breakz Records. The three sisters are just terrific; weaving a very-much spiritual thread into their rhythmic music. Their single “Definition of a Lady” is simply terrific and their performance last night immediately captivated us. They've toured with Kelly Clarkson and debuted last night a video for the track which was delightful. Seen in the crowd were Chuck Taylor; Keith Girard from The Improper; PR-pasha David Salidor; Planet Rose owner Missy, manager Morgan Stone, and their press-rep Elizabeth Neff. Delightful!

Anthony Weiner



JUNK DEFENSE --- Now, I never really cared for Anthony Weiner. I've found him consistently flat, just plain rude, and a screamer to boot. To me, this whole Weiner Gate episode is comically-inspired. And, with his response being: My account was hacked .. it could be … I don't know? Who is he kidding? Karma my friend … is a bitch! As we noted a few columns back, re WPLJ's Todd Pettengill: More duty … less booty!

Sheryl Crow



CROWING FROM MEMPHIS --- Our friends at Eagle Rock continue to impress with the release this week of the DVD Miles from Memphis: Live At the Pantages Theatre by Sheryl Crow. 18 songs shot in Hi-Def and surround sound, its an exceptionally tasty treat. We've always loved Crow and as she showed on her most recent album, 100 Miles From Memphis, she's reformatted her songs somewhat, with a funky-Memphis beat and some inspiration from Motown. Her take here on Marvin Gaye's “Got To Give It Up” is simply sensational. We also loved her updating of her hits “A Change Would Do You Good” and “Strong Enough.” Crow, who is currently dating her guitarist (and, producer) Doyle Bramhall II, has been on the music scene for a while, but here completely shines. She's sensational.


****

JUST ASKING --- What well-known NY-publicist has temporarily been benched while his clients go on a major national reunion tour? According to the benched flack: "I've received almost 50+ press requests, that I've had to pass onto to the new team. I wonder if they'll get done?" We wish her the best! Again, karma's a bitch!

WHY LANCE ARMSTRONG LEFT SHERYL CROW

Lance Armstrong


Bike rider Lance Armstrong blames singer Sheryl Crow's biological clock for their relationship breakdown. Lance and Sheryl dated for three years and were engaged to be married, but went seperate ways in February 2006. Armstrong has three children from another marriage to Kristin Richards, but is insisting he wasn't ready for kids with Crow as he was still recovering from his divorce. In his upcoming tell-all book Lance, he admits the pressure of Crow's advancing years finally broke them apart, according to New York gossip column Page Six. He writes, "She wanted marriage, she wanted children; and not that I didn't want that, but I didn't want that at that time because I had just gotten out of a marriage, I'd just had kids. Yet we're up against her biological clock -- that pressure is what cracked it."Because if somebody wants a child -- man, that's the greatest gift you can give to a woman -- so who are you to stand there and say I don't want one. So we were at different points in our lives. We were not compatible on that issue."

SHERYL CROW WANTED TO COMMIT SUICIDE

Singing icon Sheryl Crow suffered from such severe depression years ago, she wanted to commit suicide.The singer has battled with the illness for many years, but admits her lowest ebb came in her 20s. She says, "I thought about suicide a lot in my twenties. I suffer from depression, and at its worst there was a six-month period in my twenties when I couldn’t dress, days when I couldn’t leave the house."Antidepressants helped and so did therapy, but depression is a chemical thing that some people go through. It’s always been part of my life."

SHERYL CROW DENIES TOILET PAPER CAPER

Sheryl Crow is denying claims she once vowed to use only one piece of toilet paper every time she visited the bathroom.The star insists her now infamous words during a eco-awareness campaign last year, were taken out of context to "embarrass" her. She says, "They took something that was part of a comic routine we were doing on the Global Warming college tour and set it up as if it was something that I believed in, to embarrass me. It was really embarrassing to watch."It was on every news channel as if it was news. It was everywhere. That’s when I want to shake people and say, ‘You’ve got to wake up. You watch the news and you believe this stuff?’"

SHERYL CROW WANTS TO SNARE COWBOY

Lance Armstrong with Ex. Sheryl Crow

Sheryl Crow has vowed to stay in Texas until she snares herself a cowboy.The country singer has no plans to sell her Texan Lone Star estate - which she bought with former lover and Austin native Lance Armstrong - because she wants to find a new Texan man. Sheryl announced during her performance at a rodeo on Wednesday night: "My sister said I needed to come out here and just say it, 'I'm looking for a cowboy'."I'm not giving up on Texas - yet."The 45-year-old performed her hit 'Are You Strong Enough to Be My Man', pausing midway to shout "Anybody up for the job?"The evening, 'Paint the Rodeo Pink', was themed in honor of Sheryl's battle against breast cancer. Pink cowboy hats were on sale with awareness ribbons on the brim - and the singer urged the audience to raise awareness of the illness. She said: "This is a real special night, because this time last year I got diagnosed with breast cancer and we couldn't come and we were so disappointed."We appreciate you wearing your pink. I know cowboys don't normally wear pink - but real cowboys can get away with it."Sheryl arrived on her black-and white spotted horse, which reared up and then galloped around the ring before she dismounted to perform. After forgetting the words to 'Soak up the Sun' she joked: "That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you know it's live - when you screw up the lyrics. No lip-synching here."Sheryl left the rodeo in a stylish red Mustang convertible.

LANCE ARMSTRONG ON EX. SHERYL CROW

Sheryl Crow's ex-boyfriend Lance Armstrong has vowed never to discuss his private life in public after his high-profile relationship with the rocker ended last year. Armstrong, who split with the singer last February, believes speaking out about potential partners puts "unnecessary and unrealistic expectations" on a couple -- and he intends to stay silent over any future love conquests. The 35-year-old cyclist says, "We are not going to talk about whoever is involved or whoever is in my life. If somebody takes a picture they can put two and two together. "It's so hard. It puts too much strain and unrealistic expectations on a relationship when you put it out there. "It's tough when you love somebody and you want to be with them, you want to talk about them. It's not easy, but I think it is by and large better not to talk about it."
