“‘Transformers’ actress Megan Fox insists Hollywood is so awash with drugs, she is one of only five people she knows who doesn’t indulge in illegal substances. Fox admits to trying various drugs, but didn’t like her experiences under the influence. She tells American magazine Maxim, ‘I’ve done drugs, and that’s how I know I don’t like them…I know about five people who aren’t on drugs today, and I’m one of them.'”

I guess this means Megan Fox wasn’t on drugs when she accepted Brian Austin Green’s marriage proposal. (The “Transformers” star is currently engaged to the “90210” alum.) Thought provoking. Don’t get me wrong, I used to love David Silver. But you know, BAG hasn’t been in anything worthwhile since Bev 9. Although, I think Megan Fox is like, 12 years old. So that might explain some things.

PS. I am well aware that this entry is useless and no one even knows who Megan Fox is. But I just thought this photo should be posted somewhere.

Independence Day always puts me in that wistful, struggle-for-democracy, loose-the-chains-of-tyranny kind of mood. Rather than celebrating the 4th with moneyed, explosion-ridden spectacles, I’m celebrating Independence Day (Week?) by going to REwind: A Cantata for Voice, Tape & Testimony at Prospect Park on Friday night.

Cape Town composer Philip Miller’s extraordinary international collaboration is based on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings that led South Africa from apartheid to democracy. Opera superstar Sibongile Khumalo joins other South African soloists, a string octet, and a 100-voice chorus composed of Brooklyn’s Total Praise Choir of Emanuel Baptist Church, the Williams College Choir, and a South African ex-patriot choir led by choirmaster Ron Kunene. The music blends seamlessly with samples of recorded TRC testimony and stunning projected images. “The Cantata brought together the cry of our country—our pain and fears, our hopes and especially our triumphs and joys in the way we as South Africans can best express these emotions—in music and song. It was a deeply moving, most powerful and uplifting experience.” (Archbishop Desmond Tutu)
