Sigmund Freud’s nephew, 85 year old artist Lucian Freud, has set a new record for the highest selling painting for a still living artist.

His painting titled “Benefit Supervisor Sleeping” sold for over $33 million dollars at Christie’s in New York City. The model in the painting is now 51 year old Sue Tiley. She’s forever become a part of Freud’s large-scale, life-size painting series of portraits celebrated from the late 1980’s through the mid-1990’s.

Freud’s work hasn’t always been so widely recognized and appreciated. It’s taken a career of nearly 70 years to reach his fame status he maintains today.

So Skinny… October 27, 2007

Filed under: Art — FattieGossip @ 7:48 pm

I’m a bit late on this, seeing that this came out about a year ago, but I still felt it was worth sharing….a music video celebrating the sexuality (it’s quite suggestive) of BBW’s.

So why is it called “She’s So Skinny” with a music video full of BBW’s? Well if you listen to the lyrics you realize a skinny woman is trying to seduce a man, but he turns her down b/c “she’s so skinny”

“Born on a small island in a little place called the East Village the Glamazons never lost their baby fat. These song and dance girls prove that the stage is big enough for the most buxom of beauties. Giving you a large, hot helping of bawdy burlesque, striptease, go go dancing and sassy songs…they serve it up with a sexy style all their own. The girls have been described as the plus-size Pussy Cat Dolls.

The Glamazons are 4 fierce ladies who are singing and dancing their way through New York City. They’ve performed at numerous places, including The Roxy, Avalon and The Rainbow Room. These girls have also been seen strutting their stuff on the WB Morning show on more than one occasion. They are strong, sexy, plus size women who can sing anything from showtunes to hip hop.

UK Singer Mika and the Butterfly Lounge July 3, 2007

Filed under: Art,Celebrities — FattieGossip @ 9:37 pm

Thanks to a comment left by “Tina” on my blog post in search of fattie-related songs, I’ve learned of a new UK singing Artist. His video of, “Big Girl (You are Beautiful)” may be viewed below:

I love the light-heartedness and catchiness of the song :).

Anyways, Mika is a near 24 year old man, who’s recognition and popularity has been rising since 2006. He was once trained by Alla Ardakov (Ablaberdyeva) a Russian opera professional, and used to sing classical music. “Grace Kelly” was his first song to hit number one on the UK charts last year. If you’d like more information on Mika and his musice you can explore his site here.

I think whenever you’re feeling down, you should just play the song I’ve shared in this post. You can’t help but smile when listening to it :).

FYI!!! In the song he sings, “Get yourself to the Butterfly Lounge
Find yourself a big lady…” He’s referring to the first Size Acceptance Night Club in Orange County, California by the same name, Butterfly Lounge, and you can visit their site here.

On the site Kathleen, the owner, explains the story of Mika coming to write “Big Girls (You are Beautiful):

After the show the crowd was sent outside I was able to meet with MIKA. I went to shake his hand and found that instead we were hugging.

He grabbed both of my shoulders and said to me, “I wrote you this song; Big Girl (you are beautiful) this is your song!” 

We talked about the BBC special I had done years ago with Victoria Wood…he said to me when they got to the part where The Butterfly Lounge was featured…the show took a turn and sent a message to everyone saying, “Love yourself for who you are!” He told me he was so inspired that he started writing our song right then!…It was a moment I will never forget; He gave me tons of signed posters and a few full CD’s for the nightclub. He told me he is there for us! I have to say MIKA has a huge heart and it as genuine as they come! He is absolutely adorable, just an FYI for those of you who want too know. He told me that as soon as his schedule opens up that he will be personally visiting our nightclub! (Looks like it will be sometime in April) He also asked for our logo and is having shirts printed out and will be wearing them very soon!!!”

Thanks guys!
