    LIGHTS special ACOUSTIC tour is now sold out! #LIGHTSACOUSTIC -@jeremythebug (about 7 hours ago by @lights)

    At first, I was going to make fun of Kelly’s desperate tweet. But, you know what? It just doesn’t matter! I don’t care enough about Kelly, Jian or Lights anymore to make any witty comment about them. They are sad. They are desperately seeking attention. I’m not giving it to them (at least not after this comment). They are boring. DONE!

    Today’s lesson from Jian:
    Using the term “Canuckistan” is an example of IRONY.

        And it doesn’t matter if they deny it, because P.R. is what Kelly is doing for them by having them on on her show with an “amazing product shot of the cd”. Too obvious.

    The “kind shout out” – as Jian interprets it – is in reference to Sebastian Horsley, who died this weekend of an apparent heroin overdose. Jian did an interview with him, that Q reposted. Jian thinks that he got a “kind shout out” when the topic at hand was Sebastian Horsley and his untimely death. Quite a tasteless display of narcissism from Jian.

          She owes him for everything. She’d be nothing without him, that’s for sure. But the truth is, she’d probably be better off never having come across a scumbag like Jian, filling her head with nonsense, telling her that she was going to be a star and that she is the greatest thing since Frampton or whoever else. He’s been fucking with this girl’s head since she was 14 when he should have just left her alone.

          Yep. It’s redundant for a celebrity interview show to be explaining who the celebrity is. Jian says that he does it to provide “context” for his audience, because Jian thinks that his audience would be totally lost if Jian didn’t explain who Billy Bob Thornton is before he interviews him about his band. It’s patronizing to his audience, but Jian does think that he’s smarter than everyone else, as does George.

    Dear all,

    Lake Shore’s concept has evolved since the last statement I’ve made in regards with this reality show. It is no longer the Persian version of Jersey Shore. It is now about a cultural clash.

    “‘Jersey Shore’ meets ‘Big Brother’. Fireworks explode and personalities collide as eight over-the-top men and women from various ethnic backgrounds move into a house together.”

    Along with notable Torontonians, photographer Vincenzo Pietropaolo has developed a series of “favourite tree” portraits that will be unveiled and available for auction at this event.
    Jian, with Atom Egoyan, Amy Millan and Adrienne Clarkson (to name a few) have all collaborated on the series, in support of this worthy cause.

    These marketing events reek of insincerity. Using the environment to promote yourself. “I’m such a good person! This is my favourite tree! It’s not about the tree, though, it’s all about ME! ME! ME!” A better ideal would be to have all these celebs PLANT trees (& leave their cars at home).

    CBC Television and Freeze Frame are teaming up to provide a select group of young people aged 14 to 18 the chance to create a one-minute video exploring the arts and culture.

    Entitled “Show Off!” a collection of the one-minute videos will be broadcast by CBC September 24 as part of Culture Days 2010.

      Jian ditching Lights for a younger artist with more potential is inevitable. I doubt that he wants to be managing an unsuccessful artist when he’s 50 (which is only a few years away).

      And she sure hasn’t lived up to his early hype in 2003 :

      ” i’ve signed a new artist named
      VALERIE who is the best thing in rock/pop music since PETER FRAMPTON
      came alive. actually even better. can’t wait for you to hear her.”
