I’m in LAX, it’s the typical morning gloomy day with clouds covering the marina. Its’ dark. Its’ not even light yet even though it’s 10:00 in the morning. Yet here I am at the airport, and there are quite a number of people walking around in dark sunglasses and a hat, or if they’re a woman, wrapped in a cashmere shawl-throw type thingy. Seems like that cashmere shawl is a very popular thing for celebrities and wannabe celebrities to wear. I guess it’s so nobody recognizes who they are?

It’s so funny to watch people walk around on a cloudy day with dark glasses on. It makes absolutely no sense at all. They can’t possibly need the sunglasses, there’s no sun out. Especially inside the airport. Ever been in LAX? That place is dark, gloomy, and outdated in every which way.

Living in L.A. is a real comedy sometimes. It’s a real circus parade. I know that for many of you a celebrity sighting is a fun thing, it’s like spotting a wild bird or an endangered species. But in Los Angeles, these celebrities, no matter what level they are, whether it’s a B-list, C-list, or D-list quasi-celebrity, will always mask themselves in public because they feel that the world is constantly chasing them and looking at them. But in reality, the majority of people won’t even recognize who somebody is until they put on the dark glasses on and the scarf.


Because here’s the deal: when it’s a cloudy, rainy day, and you’re walking into the supermarket with dark sunglasses and a scarf on, everybody is going to look at you. So I think what they’re actually doing is the exact opposite of what they’re pretending to do, and they’re doing it for a reason: they really want people to notice them. By masking themselves, they actually want to be noticed.

I have found that the majority of people I’ve met who are so-called celebrities are some of the most insecure people in the world. A lot of them are narcissists who want others to look at them constantly, asking, “Who is that? Ooh, is that a celebrity?” A lot of them really love the attention 24/7. So it’s a pretty ironic thing to be able to watch the circus parade all the time.

So many people just want other people to look at them. They want to be noticed. A lot of them come here to Los Angeles just to be noticed, just to be famous. It’s amazing when you drive around Los Angeles. There are just so many wannabe celebrities.
