Circus. Janet. Nelly. Paris. Beyonce. And Nelly.
Hope you're enjoying the weekend... the kickoff to a long, hot summer.
Me thinks I've gone a little buck wild this week, enjoying a little down time from a busy schedule. Nothing like "vacationing" in your own town. That's the best.
If you're coming to L.A. anytime soon, one overlooked gem -- in terms of clubs and dance places for boys -- is Circus. The place has been around since forEVER and still packs them in on Tuesday and Friday nights.
A lot of folks are not into the WEHO thing, if you know what I mean, and love the fact that Circus is muy flavaful! Hip hop, reggaeton, dancehall, musica en espanol, blah blah blah. My friends and I were like, all the tourists love to visit The Abbey, which is cool and a must see. Any day of the week. But Circus is such an undiscovered gem... and value.
So speaking of music, heard the new Janet Jackson and Nelly, CALL ON ME, last night driving into town. We love it!
Then got a troika of my other new favorites. Please don't laugh when I tell you the new Paris Hilton, STARS ARE BLIND, has grown to become one of my new faves. So is the new Beyonce and Jay-Z... DEJA VU. And totally loving the Nelly Furtado, PROMISCUOUS.
