    Wow! Carly had nice breasts, considering it was the whole “burn your bra” era. Nice shape. Real. Not those hard as rocks cantelopes the starletards seem to have nailed to their chests these days.

  2. Kaboom says:

    Why would Sting apologize? Like Bono, he’s sitting high up on a horse of righteousness and can do no wrong.

  3. bo says:

    Audrey! Netflix for Dawson’s Creek happening in 3, 2, 1…

  4. Majosha says:

    Regardless of who Carly was singing about, Joni Mitchell still holds the title for the best Geffen-inspired song with “Free Man in Paris.”

  5. Lindsay says:

    Bret Michaels wants Miley Cyrus to “get undressed”. In a song. That song and is lyrics are sickening and completely inappropriate. She is a minor.

    How did the song get recorded? No one on either side that this was a terrible idea? The record labels? Seriously? Bret Michaels doesn’t have much of a career to ruin. But she is killing her only real audience, children and “tweens.”

  6. KIKI says:

    I thought she said she was going to take that secret to her grave. I wish I knew what the Brange was doing today, I miss them more than my own family when they stay home.

  7. Oi says:

    what is going on with Carly’s left hand?

  8. LindyLou says:

    Good Lord! Michael Kors’ belly button is the most horrific one I’ve seen! WTF?? It looks like a tumor….or a hernia….ewwwwwwwwww

  9. Jag says:

    Kors’ bellybutton looks like a hernia. He should have that checked.

    Brett Michaels’ song with Cyrus is too creepy for me to listen to. Why would he think it was appropriate to sing something like that with her? And why would her people think it would go over well? Every person I’ve seen comment on it is creeped out by it.

  10. What evs says:

    Carly Simon ….I thought that was Jessica Biel.. They look alike, except Carly has talent. . .

  11. ThunderC*nt says:

    Kellan has beautiful intense eyes where Disick has a sociopathic stare like Robert Chamberlian and Christian Bale in American Psycho. There’s a difference but I know my light eyes freak out some brown eyed people.

  12. kelbear says:

    bo I was thinking the same thing.

  13. ThunderC*nt says:

    Why hasn’t Kaiser focused on the divorce between Paltrow and Madonna in the latest Goop?

  14. canadianchick says:

    New word I learned today in the Sting link: twatwaffle. Thanks CB!

  15. irishserra says:

    Ba ha ha ha!!! Twatwaffle! I’m going to use that one. Love it!!

  16. Trillion says:

    Wow, Carly had an amazing body. That was the 70′s so I bet she never even worked out. Bitch!

  17. Magsy says:

    Who the hell cares who it’s about 30+ years later.

  18. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    ThunderC*nt! Don’t throw something like that out w/out some details! What’s the scoop?

    Sorry — I just can’t bring myself to sign up at her website…

  19. Lenore says:

    Geffen? Seriously? Isn’t he gay? Because the lyrics imply the target of the song was a former affair of Carly’s, often away with “the wife of a close friend” – a womaniser.

  20. haribo says:

    carly simon mentioned a long time ago that she was singing about warren beatty in the song…

  21. Jazz says:

    I thought that song was about Warren Beatty. She looks like Jessica Biel in that picture. Apologies Carly!

  22. Felicia says:

    Jessica Biel could totally play her in a movie!

  23. Rianna says:

    the david geffen idea has been debunked.

    Roger Friedman’s ShowBiz411 column for The Hollywood Reporter attacked the Sun for being factually incorrect.

    “David Geffen had nothing to do with Carly Simon in 1972,” he wrote. “He ran Asylum Records. She was on Elektra.”

  24. Allison says:

    Pleaaaasssseee post more about carly! She has been my favorite singer since birth and she is still as vibrant and fabulous as ever! I would love to hear more stories (positive of course, lol) about Carly.

  25. Corrie says:

    I bet You’re so Vain was really written about Caroline Kennedy. Yeah, bad joke thar only geezers like me will get.

  26. Sumodo1 says:

    Asylum and Elektra merged.

  27. Victoria says:

    Didn’t Carly raffle off the name of the guy in You’re So Vain in a charity event? Should the charity give the $$ back?

  28. Lala11_7 says:

    I just read an amazing book about Carly/Joni and Carole King…and the common thread between all three were James Taylor…anyway…reading about what or more important…WHO Carly was into during that time period…it could be about a number of men she was involved with…Personally, I always thought it was a composite…but David Geffen?!?! HECKY NAW!!!

  29. lucy2 says:

    Lala, I read that book too! It was interesting, I didn’t know much about them prior to reading it.
    I always assumed it was Warren Beatty. The story there doesn’t make much sense – it’s apparently all based the name “David” being barely audible while playing the song backwards. Yeah, like that’s concrete proof!

  30. Gia says:

    I thought CS was singing that song about Mick Jagger. They both had nice lips back then.

  31. K McFarlane says:

    I had heard that it was about Mick Jagger.

  32. Sol says:

    Mick Jagger sings the choir on that song along with Carly so i doubt it’s about him. He must know who the song is about and must have had a great laugh.

  33. SammyHammy says:

    Honestly, after all these years, who really cares who the song was about?

  34. danielle says:

    I hope I never find out who it’s really about – spoils things – now it can be about whoever you want and whatever situation you want. I think alot of people are very curious – it’s such an awesome song!
