All the juicy SXSW gossip!

1) Which veteran singer, who's already been banned from one of Austin's finer hotels, got blacklisted from another during SXSW? St. Patty's or not, you can't be throwing a room service tray at the waiter who delivers it, no matter how messed up the order might be.

2) Which British import threw a minor tantrum after being denied entry to the at-capacity R.E.M. show at Stubbs, dumbfounded that big buzz from across the pond doesn't instantly translate in Texas?

3) Which recently-charted newcomer, whose big pay day came through song placement in a major national TV ad, is already denying autograph seekers?

Who are the culprits?????

CLICK HERE to find out their identities!

P.S. Our party was epic. Definitely the talk of all Austin.

More on that….later!

1. Van Morrison (already banned from 4 Seasons, now Driskill, though the Driskill is denying this)
2. Duffy
3. Sara Bareilles

    #201 - Yes but…no but…yes but…no but.. says: What gives these stars the right to behave like they're above everyone else and to be friggn' divas? They chose entertainment because they want to serve and entertain us. Full stop. They're entertaining us, not saving lives. They're not gods and goddesses for fucks sakes! They should shut up and keep entertaining us just like the circus clowns that they are!
    KITNPLAYN SAYS: THERE YOU GO PROVING MY POINT. YOU ARE ARROGANT, SELF-INVOLVED AND SELF-IMPORTANT…..AND YOU JUST INSULTED THOUSANDS OF YOUR FELLOW AMERICANS; PEOPLE WHO HAVE TALENT AND AMBITION THAT YOU WILL NEVER HAVE….AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING BUT SITTING ON YOUR ASS LIKE SOME KIND OF A DIVA AND CRITICIZING THEM. NOW YOU ARE FORCING ME TO ADD "HYPOCRIT" TO THE ARGUMENT.

    I went to the show and it was freaking amazing. Thank you Perez for sharing your wonderful taste in music with all of us. I feel like this party WAS the talk of SXSW…and everyone I know was trying to figure out how to get in. GREAT party Perez…and great music.

    Van Morrison is a tight wad! This is not slander but very true! I waited on him some years back in Belfast and he left me 57p (about a dollar) in change on a £100 bill (Bout $200). I wouldn't mind but I was a good waitress and didn't throw/drop/spill anything on him! He also did the pompous finger clicks to get service - How VERY DARE HE!

    Perez, you do know that us Irish consider Patty to be a woman's name and so saying 'St. Patty's Day' is a bit of an insult to our patron saint. If you do have to shorten it (and I don't know why people do) you might want to try 'St. Paddy's Day'. Good man!

    c'mon Perez… like others have said… we say Paddy's because Padraig is Irish for Patrick, St. Patty's Day is not correct… it's St. Paddy's Day!

    Sara Bareilles didn't learn much from being on tour with MIKA last year. MIKA is always so great to his fans…spending lots of time signing things and talking to them.

    Don't forget who pays the bills for ya, Sara.

    From what I hear, pompous asses like Morrison get paid back for mistreating the wait staff. Hey Van, you have to EAT that stuff they're serving. You might want to treat them a little nicer. People really do stuff like that, sick as it is. Oh, and kitnplayn, bite me. You're the arrogant one, and making stupid assumptions about people shows your ignorance. Bung off!!

    You're an idiot. Sara Bareilles was taking pictures with people one of the past few times she was in Austin. She's not a bitch.

    Never heard one word about your party the whole week I was in Austin. Definitely not the talk of the town. Get over yourself.

    I am in absoute awe at the amount of people who do not know who Van Morrison is…so here his a history lesson from a 27 year old chick…

    Van MOrrison is an Irish singer songwriter who rose to fame in the 60s with hits like Brown Eyed Girl, Gloria, and Moondance. He continued fame into the 70s with ground breaking and elcectic albums that mixed soul with pop and little blues. He is a true credit to his profession and is one of the most amazing, charismatic musicians to ever come from the other side of the pond.

    He is also EXTREMELY reclusive, and I find it hard to believe that this story is true, considering that he is wicked shy…and generally does not make public appearances. FOr those of you unfamiliar with his work, I suggest you check it out…it is a privledge to hear him sing.

    Morrison's career, spanning some five decades, has influenced many popular musical artists. In 1993 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003. In 2000, Morrison ranked #25 on American cable music channel VH1's list of its 100 greatest artists of rock and roll, and in 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Van Morrison 42nd on their list of The Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[4][5] Paste Magazine ranked him 20th in their list of 100 Greatest Living Songwriters in 2006 and Q Magazine ranked him 22nd on their list of 100 Greatest Singers in April 2007

    I never said that I WASN'T a diva. I argued the case for why these "stars" are divas. I totally agree with you: I am a diva. They think that they're better than me and I think that I'm better than them….but only I am right. HA!

    Ah Perez, I was supose to be in Austin this week and got sidelined after there were some… well… miscomunications. My buddies from a rival label made it out to your party and tell me it was awesome. Next year for sure? Cheers from the Pacific Northwest.

    KITNPLAYN SAYS: CAN YOU BE SPECIFIC? …BECAUSE ALL I SEE IS RHETORIC, SINCE I DID NOT MAKE ANY ASSUMPTIONS. PERHAPS YOU SHOULD LOOK UP THE DEFINITION OF "ASSUMPTION" IN A DICTIONARY BEFORE YOU START THROWING THE WORD AROUND. AND (BUNG OFF) …haha… WHAT GRADE ARE YOU IN ANYWAY? WHILE YOU HAVE THE DICTIONARY OPEN, YOU MAY WANT TO PERUSE THE DEFINITION OF ARROGANT, TO WIT I AM SURE YOU WILL AGREE IS FELICITOUS.

    KITNPLAYN SAYS: WHAT WAY IS IT THAT YOU THINK YOU ARE BETTER THAN THEY ARE? YOU MADE AN ARROGANT, RHETORICAL STATEMENT THAT HAS NO SUBSTANTIVE INFORMATION. I NOTED SPECIFICALLY THAT YOU AVOIDED COMMENTING ON THE ISSUE THAT BEING AN ENTERTAINER BY PROFESSION, DOES NOT GIVE YOU OR ANYONE ELSE THE RIGHT TO DICTATE WHAT THEY DO OR DON'T DO ON THEIR PERSONAL TIME. REALLY, THEY ARE ONLY OBLIGATED TO ENTERTAIN YOU DURING THE TIME IN WHICH YOU ARE PAYING THEM FOR THEIR ENTERTAINMENT. ANYTHING OTHER THAN THAT SHOULD BE APPRECIATED, NOT EXPECTED. THAT IS THE VERY DEFINITION OF ARROGANCE AND SELFISHNESS. SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO REPLY, I WILL EXPECT YOUR SUBSEQUENT ANSWER TO BE ARROGANT, SELF-INVOLVED AND SELF-IMPORTANT.

    Re: kitnplayn

    Actually, anything that these stars do away from their performing time still serves their own interests. They're entertainers and therefore they dedicate their lives to the product which is them. Anything that they do away from their craft is self promotion so they have to handle themselves well at all times. Also, if I buy his CD (which I haven't cos I've only just learnt this so called "legend" exists) I am then his customer and you should treat your customers as valued customers at all times cos that's good customer service. Furthermore, they earn millions the least they could do is jump hoops for us! So that's my selfinvolved and selfimportant response! HA!

    I do not know about Epic. I live in Austin, and have not heard one thing about your party. I did however hear that you tried to get into a show, and were denied. In fact you had to wait outside texting someone to come and get you in. So sad. Guess you have to d more than Gossip to be considered a celeb here in Texas.

  46. love sara says – reply to this


    246

    Sara is an amazing artist. Def. not a one hit wonder! Her lyrics are deep and her music is of a soulful jazz more liked by the mature crowd. She has an amazing voice and it is 100 times better heard in person.

    Ive been to a few of her open mics before she signed a record contract and she's far from snobby. Lets not judge her by a few unsigned autographs.

    Buy her music, listen to the whole CD and then tell me she's a one hit wonder I DARE YOU.

    I have seen and met with Sara Bareilles numerous times, both before and after her stardom. Which couldn't have happened to a sweeter, more human, more talented person.

    the whole 'denying autographs' is a joke, she shows so much compassion and interest towards her fans than most artists today.

    why does every gotta haaaate?

    >>Van Morrison Not A Diva

    (Undated) — Tales of Van Morrison's alleged diva behavior apparently aren't true. Gossip blogger Perez Hilton claims in a recent entry that the veteran singer-songwriter is no longer welcome at The Driskill Hotel in Austin, Texas because of a supposed room service incident. Morrison was said to have become upset about a botched order and threw a tray at the person who delivered the meal. However, "The Austin American Statesman" is reporting that the story is a fabrication. The Driskill's managing director John Spomer tells the newspaper in an e-mail statement that there were no unpleasant run-ins with the classic rocker, who hasn't been banned from the hotel. He notes, quote, "Throughout his stay, Mr. Morrison, as well as members of his party, treated our staff with the utmost professional courtesy and respect." Morrison was in Austin last week for the annual South By Southwest Music Festival to promote his upcoming release "Keep It Simple." The CD is due in stores on April 1st.

    I really don't know what you are talking about. I went and saw Sara Bareilles the day that she performed on the Today show (2-21) in Vermont. That night she had a concert in Madison, Wisconsin as well as having to make a late night drive to Chicago.

    After the concert she took more then enough time to talk and take pictures and sign autographs, with every single fan that stayed after. She was so appreciative of ever fan, even when you could tell she was just shot for the long day . So I am pretty sure that if Sara even had a remote option to take time and sign autographs she would.
