I could give a sh*t about most celebrity couples pairing up or breaking up, but I was gutted to hear about this split.

their daughter is 17 now and will be going off the college. so it makes sense that they would separate now. i think kim will move back to the NY area and thurston will stay here now now....(he just opened a record store here a few months ago)

so yesterday I was feeling a little down and headed to a bar a couple blocks from my apartment, a pretty place with great music and rarely crowded. This time it was just me and my friends, a couple, the DJ and another circle of friends. Well well when I looked closely at the couple, the woman was none other than Kim! I was like 'holy f--' ... I love her! she was sooooo nice and humble, I didn't ask for anything, just sat next to her (and had to fight my urge not to hug her ) to order my beer and probably had the silliest smile on my face and she knew and just smiled back and so did her partner.. the place was so empty and the atmosphere so intimate I felt weird even asking for a picture... she spent a long time talking to the bartender (a cowboy in his 60s). It's hard to believe she's 61, she's hot!

(such a silly thing to say but just noticed I started this thread on the same day, 10 (!) years ago!)

how effing cool! yeah i'm like you....i don't think i could bring myself to sort of bother them as much as i would love to with certain people i love. but just the memory of being in her presence is probably a lot more lasting.

I know! she seemed so relaxed and enjoying the (amazing!) music with her beer just like the rest, I thought asking for something or even mentioning something quick to her was unnecessary. I did take a tiny pic though.. just because.. I couldn't stop myself and was freaking out inside!

can't wait to read this!

Quote:
Girl in a Band: A Memoir, Kim Gordon (February 24)

The coolest woman in the world tell us all about her life: growing up in California, going to art school, painting in weird New York, and playing in Sonic Youth for 25 years, with her former husband Thurston Moore. Gordon has always been the ultimate and, yet, a bit of an enigma; in this book she’s candid and beguiling, naming names and beautifully honest about her thoughts on the breakup with Thurston or being, as the title says, a girl in a band. — ED

have you guys been seeing some of the excerpts that's being released from the book?!? she has some rather scathingly honest opinions ranging from everyone like billy corgan and courtney love to unsurprisingly her ex-husband to lana del rey. that will be a juicy read!!

btw,some other less personal news on kim,yesterday it was announced that kim's old clothing line x-girl will be making it's return to the states for the first time since it was sold to a japanese company in 1998.....since then it was only available in japan.

^ yes, i've read some of the reviews. i'm glad she's being straight-up honest, although it was either the nyt or ny.mag piece that said she was still reserved in the book overall.

good to hear about her line. honestly i don't really remember it but i'll be curious to see. she's also having an art show in ny city sometime soon i believe. in one interview she said she is trying out new ways to support herself beyond music.
