Lionel Ritchie Performs For Billionaires

If you are of a certain age you have probably sprayed hot tears to a Lionel Richie song. He has a magical voice, a magical songwriting ability and, of course, a magical jheri curl with just the right bounce. No one, not even Descartes could be so heartless as to not weep softly at "Hello" ... especially when that sexy visually impaired woman studiously constructed out of clay what can only be properly construed as *The Lionel Bust*

Out of clay, people; out of clay. The Lionel -- as this blogger prefers to refer to him -- also apparently elicits a somewhat over-passionate response from women. But enough said about that.

This latest incarnation of Lionel Richie has the singer absconding altogether from the fledgling music industry. Lionel always knew when to leave a party. He now performs at jet-set parties for billionaires and in London for people like Kate Moss or in Cannes for jewellers Chopard's 150th birthday party. Sweet gig, to be sure, if somewhat whorish. Because he's Truly. He operates now in rarefied atmospheres doing sets entirely for the well-off; he sings for his supper. From NYMag:

Last night at the American Ballet Theater’s 70th anniversary spring gala at the Metropolitan Opera House, philanthropist David Koch revealed that he, too, recently celebrated his 70th birthday. "My wife put on a fantastic party for me in Palm Beach, with the theme being The Wizard of Oz, since I’m from Kansas,” the genial billionaire told us. "The invitation said 'Come to the Emerald City,' so the whole theme was Wizard of Oz, from Dorothy, yellow-brick road, Toto, and it was magnificent."

There were speeches from family and friends, followed by a giant birthday cake shaped like a Disney castle, and Koch presented his wife, Julia, with a pair of red slippers. ("They were Louboutins," she interjected.) “And then, after that, we had Lionel Richie perform," he said. "It was absolutely over-the-top." The bash was in the ballroom at the exclusive Everglades Club. “The weather was good, so we opened up the ceiling so we had nice fresh air coming in. It was a really special moment in my life.”

Of course it was.

It was Lionel.
