this series below!

More of Johnny’s interview 
with Lady Gaga airs TONIGHT 
on Access Hollywood—don’t miss it!
Watch Part 1 here!
UPDATE: Part 2 here!

Johnny has a new official 
Facebook fan page
Please go “like” it now! 

Unfortunately the old one has been hacked
so please also be sure to “unlike” it 
to help reduce its reach across social media.

Dear Johnny, 
we believe in you, 
we support you, and 
we love you always.

So basically I have arrived at Monday in a state of complete personal exhaustion on all levels—since because life, and also the never-ending winter of my discontent here in Chiberia, where we had yet more snow (snow!) over the weekend—a state best articulated by one of my favorite fictional characters, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, after a particularly long and harrowing phase of her own, i.e., working to destroy Sunnydale’s giant evil snake of a mayor and pretty much save the world (again): 

“Fire bad; tree pretty.” (Note: If you’re not a Buffy fan, IDK if we can be friends.)

Although for our purposes, we’re going to go with: “Everything bad—well, OK, not everything, because that’s way too much of a downer statement and doesn’t really fit me because my kids will be the first to tell you that I can be irritatingly cheerful, especially when they’re in the midst of a deeply satisfying dissatisfied sulk, and actually there are lots of things that are good including the fact that at some point I will reach the end of this sentence where I hope vast amounts of chocolate await me oh look here they are now—; Johnny pretty.”

So here’s a bunch of Johnny pretty to start our week off right, and if it’s OK with you, I may just stay here, perpetually poised to plunge into the fray but never quite taking that next step... 

Feel free to join me. I also have cookies. :D

Star Power:
Johnny is featured in Getty’s 
“Celebrity Sightings in New York.”

See? Why would we ever want to leave this happy place?
Although I feel like we needed five or six hundred more pics 
out of this sighting. But I’ll take what I can get on a Monday.

Looking amazing
with manager Laina Cohn.

Something Beautiful

An astonishing gallery of fan art from my Twitter friend, Gidon.

Gidon’s blog is here, with more drawings that MUST NOT be missed, and you can also follow the artist on Twitter: @gidongainsbourg.

Please, please click any image twice for the full-size portrait. These are absolutely breathtaking.

(Gidon promised to do more drawings in exchange for transcripts of Johnny’s Access Hollywood interview, a deal to which I could not agree fast enough. So Gidon, please scroll down to see that the first two transcripts have been completed! Last one coming soon!)

This is the first portrait I saw of Gidon’s. 
It received high marks from the most discerning 
of appraisers: Johnny’s mom, Patti.

Possibly my favorite 
except for I love them all...

Bonus pics!! Via @gerdamerivee:
