According to the New York Daily News, a couple weeks ago noted provocateur Kanye West rambled into PH-D Rooftop Lounge on W. 16th St. in Manhattan, assumed a VIP table with his obligatory entourage and then proceeded to hook his laptop into the club’s sound system to serve up tracks from his forthcoming album – including a track titled……Perfect Bitch.
A source for the New York Daily News was quoted as saying: “(He raps) verses about his search for the perfect woman and how he has now found the ‘perfect bitch.’” This “perfect bitch” was universally declared to be socialite Kim Kardashian, the Angelina to Kanye’s Brad. If you thought this would offend Ms. Kardashian, you thought wrong. Per TMZ she reportedly declared: “I’m honored…The song talks about how he was with so many other girls but could never find the right one until he met me.”
So there you have it. Kanye has found his Perfect Bitch and it’s Kim Kardashian. Of course, none of that is what most interests me. No, what most interests me is one of the members of Mr. West’s entourage.
Titanic, as you might recall, was re-released into theaters earlier this year in 3D which briefly returned to the forefront the memorable movie romance of Jack and Rose, played with such affecting chemistry by DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. And it was widely reported at the time and since that Leo and Kate became BFFs during the filming and have remained so ever since. Even so, and even though they re-teamed in 2009 for Revolutionary Road, their personal lives have diverged greatly.
Winslet married, had a daughter and was divorced. She re-married, had a son and was divorced again. DiCaprio, however, even with his many notable and laudable efforts in regards to environmentalism, is still kickin’ it at the club with Kanye and “a big, VIP table full of models” in the wee hours of a Saturday morning. I do not mean to suggest that one lifestyle is right and one lifestyle is wrong. Everyone is different and must live his or her life according to who they are and how they feel. But still, I wonder. I wonder if they wonder. I wonder if during nights at home they catch re-runs of When Harry Met Sally and go “Hmmmmmmm?”
In an interview with Michael Fleming in 2007 Winslet told this story. “When I was at the Academy Awards for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I was presenting. I saw (DiCaprio) on the red carpet, told him how nervous I was. He said, ‘Sweetie, you’ll be absolutely fine.’ As I walked across the stage, I sought him out in the crowd. He gave me a big fat wink, and a little quiet thumbs up. It helped. It’s remarkable we didn’t run from each other. We really have stayed very good friends.”
Maybe it’s just because I’m an idiot romantic who (problematically) believes whole-heartedly in destiny and fate and true love. Maybe it’s just because as an uber and unapologetic Titanic fan I psychologically yearn for Jack and Rose to wind up together. Nevertheless……
I wonder if maybe, just maybe, one day off in a picturesque future, Leo will reach a realization that Kate is his very own Perfect Bitch.
THOUGHTS? DO YOU WANT KATE & LEO TO GET TOGETHER? OR IS THIS JUST (PITIFUL) WISHFUL HOPING?
