In other celebrity news, Nat and I saw the excellent Aimee Mann and her band last night in a fine-tuned, rockin' performance at Avalon. She was funny, self-deprecating, sang several of our favorite songs, and was dressed Bowie-esque in a skinny white blazer, striped shirt, and lovely baby blue necktie. And she's got more than just fashion sense: check out this blurb in the NYPost's gossip column:
Don't play "Ebony and Ivory" around singer/songwriter Aimee Mann and her band. They dubbed the Paul McCartney-Stevie Wonder tune the worst song ever. The Post's Kenneth Lovett reports Mann, who once fronted the '80s band 'Til Tuesday, told a Northampton, Mass., audience over the weekend that the title narrowly beat out prom standard "Lady in Red" by Chris DeBurgh during intense discussions on the tour van. "Those two should have known better," Mann said in citing the insipid lyrics of "Ebony and Ivory."
