olivia

’twas such a pleasure meeting olivia wilde. girlcrushing charmed [as if i wasn’t already] at nylon magazine’s event celebrating olivia on their cover. one of the parting gifts was a cute cereal box of olivia & a t-shirt with their latest cover printed on it. superb.

meadowland, the directorial debut of cinematographer reed morano, stars olivia wilde and luke wilson: “in the hazy aftermath of an unimaginable loss, married couple sarah and phil come unhinged, recklessly ignoring the repercussions.” chills ran down my spine + tears ruined my [waterproof] mascara throughout the film = proof of a job well done by all of the brilliant cast & crew.

but what a powerful and captivating performance by olivia. moreover, it was during the q&a after the film screening where she continued to shine even more as an awesome, inspirational human being while she shared her stories with reed & the journey to get this film made, as well as the positive & bullsh*t negative experiences in the industry overall. empowering. cheers, ladies! i’m inspired and working on a new song now.

“you walked into the party, like you were walking onto a yacht…”    – carly simon.

but i was walking onto a yacht. classified as a mega yacht part of fleet miami, usher is a luxurious 154-footer that i have known since 2013. even before he became a movie star in the infamous entourage film opening today, june 3rd, he is no stranger to hosting supermodels, actors, musicians, lively personalities, & movers and shakers across the world. here is an inside look of some photographs of our relationship i’ve compiled over the years.

i met usher again during his maiden voyage to new york city in the summer of 2014, and of course, i had to play him a few new songs of mine.
