Arts Paris’s Puke, Polly’s Wang
posted by November 24 at 12:54 PMon
In what was certainly the most impressive performance of her career so far, Paris Hilton took the stage at a Jay-Z show in Vegas to lip-synch a couple of her hits—and promptly puked. (Video of the historic puke simply must exist somewhere, and when anyone finds it, they should immediately share it with me.)
In legitimate art news: PJ Harvey has a new record of old recordings, all of them made over the course of Harvey’s career for BBC radio host John Peel’s legendary Peel Sessions. Everyone will find something to gripe about with the song selections, but what’s on here is great, especially the long-banished-to-a-B-side cover of Howlin’ Wolf’s “Wang Dang Doodle,” one of PJ Harvey-the-band’s finest moments. If you like the woman, get the record.
In the meantime, please enjoy this classic clip from 1993. In the world of extended-single-shot performance videos, Sinead’s “Nothing Compares to You” is a Lifetime movie, and PJ’s “Man-size” is a Cassavetes film.
