According to a “source” who spilled the beans to GRAZIA, Angelina Jolie has already picked out her wedding dress. Which means the other royal wedding can’t be too far off, right? The magazine is saying that Jolie will walk down in the aisle in a custom made dress by L’Wren Scott.
“Angelina wanted to go with someone who is not so obvious for designing wedding gowns,” the source said. “She’s been courted by some of the hottest designers on the planet, but having a big name isn’t important to Angelina. She wanted someone she could trust and she most definitely trusts L’Wren.”
Angelina has worn a couple of L’Wren’s simplistic designs before and interestingly enough, she’s the girlfriend of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jaggerwho spent a couple of years chasing after Jolie.
This is the third wedding for Angie and second for Brad, so maybe she wouldn’t go for a big princess dress, not that that has ever been her style anyway. We’ll just have to wait and see what she wears when the grainy pics hit the internet.
We all know Mick Jagger has moves, and he had no problem putting them on a young Angelina Jolie and duet partner David Bowie. In the new book MICK: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger by Christopher Andersen, nice title, the author talks about Jagger’s obsession with Jolie after she appeared as a stripper in the Rolling Stones‘ video for “Anybody Seen My Baby” back in 1997.
At the time she was still married to actor Jonny Lee Miller and initially refused to return Mick’s calls, but that didn’t stop Jagger from “begging to see her” and being “infatuated” with someone with bigger lips than his. (The last part is just what I assume.) Who else spotted Angie’s former lover, Jenny Shimizu in the video? Hmmm?
Mick once admitted that, “She scares me a little. I like that,” and bombarded her with calls, as recounted by Jolie’s late friend Lauren Taines. “Angelina, it’s Mick. Will you please, please call me?” “Miss Jolie, why aren’t you returning my calls?” “Angelina, I have got to speak to you. Call me,” were some of the incredibly desperate message left. This behavior allegedly continued up until 1999, even when Jagger was divorcing ex-wife Jerry Hall. He even gifted Angelina a pair of $5,000 earrings. I can’t imagine Mick being that desperate, but this is Angelina Jolie we’re talking about here.
In the same book, there is a very detailed account of the relationship between Jagger and David Bowie. [Cut to DivaJulia, settling in with her arms crossed for this one…] This all started long before they danced in the street, with both said to be fascinated with each other as stars and as men. If I were David Bowie, I’d expect people to be a little obsessed with me, too. Although, Keith Richards didn’t get the hype, he was probably just jealous, Mick had a lot of admiration for Bowie and the two started hanging out publicly together.
“Bowie and Jagger were soon spotted everywhere together without their wives: sitting ringside at the Muhammad Ali-Ken Norton bout, hanging out at the London disco Tramp, yelling and stomping their approval at a Diana Ross concert, or just cuddling up together on a hotel room coach. Neither superstar complained when one enterprising photographer snapped the two men in a moment of repose, Bowie tenderly cradling Mick’s head in his lap. Bowie also took Mick to gay films. “David,” said British TV producer Kevin Kahn, “is a born proselytizer.” ”
Oh, but it gets better. In 1973, when Angela Bowie returned home from a trip, the couple’s maid approached her in the kitchen and told her that someone was in her bed. She went into the bedroom to find Mick and David in bed together, naked.
“Both men woke up with a start. “Oh, hello,” said Bowie, clearly taken by surprise. “How are you?” “I’m fine,” Angie replied. “Do you want some coffee?”
Ava Cherry, who was a backup singer for Bowie is quoted as saying the men were “sexually obsessed” with each other, and practically lived together for months. There’s also a story from Bebe Buell, the ultimate groupie, where she warned about Jagger by her then boyfriend Todd Rundgren. Eventually, Buell ended up sleeping with both Mick and David, taking phone calls from them at 3 in the morning “inviting me to join them in bed with four gorgeous black women.” Or, she added, “four gorgeous black men.”
Mick: The Wild Life and Genius of Jagger is in stores now!
Another season of SNL has come and gone and the show ended it’s 37th on a pretty good note. Mick Jagger was a good host, and an even better musical guest jamming alongside Arcade Fire, Jeff Beck and Foo Fighters. The show also said goodbye to one, or three, I’m still not sure but definitely one, of it’s own.
The show kicked off with another “Lawrence Welk Show” skit this time featuring Jon Hamm as an Italian crooner. At this point, they should just add Hamm and Justin Timberlake to the cast. Jagger’s monologue and the “Secret Word” skit go over well, but I didn’t enjoy the “Karaoke Night” as much as I should have. Fred Armisen and others do their best “worst” Jagger impressions until Mick as an insurance salesman with stage fright sings a bit of “Satisfaction” all by his lonesome.
After the celebration of the 100th “Digital Short” last weekend, we get the sequel to the popular “Lazy Sunday” short complete with former cast member Chris Parnell. I didn’t enjoy “Lazy Sunday 2” as much as I could have, something was missing but you know all of the internet will be raging about it later.
There was another short “Weekend Update,” perhaps again because nothing is going on in the news right now, besides some rich, white boy publicly trading his company and then marrying his girlfriend.
But all WE really needed was an appearance from Stefon!
Of Jagger’s three performances, I think the one with Arcade Fire doing “The Last Time” was the best. “19th Nervous Breakdown” with the Foos seemed a bit off, but I think everyone will be talking about his political blues song with Jeff.
The best moment of the night came at the end where dressed in graduation caps and gowns, the cast helped send off Kristen Wiig. It wasn’t confirmed until then that she was indeed leaving and there was no better way to make her exit than with her cast mates along with Mick Jagger and Arcade Fire “She’s A Rainbow” and “Ruby Tuesday.”
There were also rumors that Jason Sudeikis, Andy Samberg and Fred Armisen were ready to move on too. If Fred does leave, who will do half-assed impressions of President Obama?
