Dylan selling underwear
CNN.com and The Associated Press report that Bob Dylan appears
in a new series of commercials for Victoria’s Secret. His
grizzled face is intercut with shots of model Adriana Lima
cavorting through Venice in a bra, panties and spike heels.
Dylan’s song “Love Sick,” from his
Grammy-winning 1997 album Time Out of Mind, provides the musical
backdrop for the spot, which airs in 15-, 30- and 60-second
It promotes a new line of lingerie, the “Angels”
collection — which explains the wings on Lima’s back as
she prances across a palazzo near a Venetian canal.
The commercials began airing a week ago and will run for the
next two weeks, said Ed Razek, chief creative officer for
Victoria’s Secret. The company experienced an immediate
uptick in sales once the spots ran, Razek said. P. Diddy could not
be reached for comment.
J.Lo’s mama rakes in the paper The Associated Press
reports that Guadalupe Lopez, 58, of New York, was playing a Wheel
of Fortune-themed slot machine at the Borgata Hotel Casino &
Spa in Atlantic City when she hit for $2,421,291.76 just before 8
p.m. Saturday, according to the casino.
Casino spokesman Michael Facenda denied knowing of any
relationship between the jackpot winner and pop celebrity Jennifer
Lopez. But Us Weekly and People magazine report in upcoming issues
that Guadalupe Lopez is Jennifer’s Lopez’s mother.
Jennifer Lopez’s publicist, Rob Shuter, declined to
comment. P. Diddy immediately flew his mama to Atlantic City.
