"Taylor Beckett Pretty White Lies"

I just finished up a great song this week that one of our young artists will be cutting. Her name is Taylor Beckett. You may not know her now, but please be assured that with this kind of drive and talent, and at only seventeen years old, this chick can SANG! Now, you notice I didn’t say sing. I said SANG. She should be able to. She has been singing professionally since she was a young age and always bringing down the house. She has an incredible character in her voice and her country side shows in such a strong and soulful way. Well here, see for yourself. This is her Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/taylorbeckett101#p/a/f/1/QK373X4PGqk It hasn’t been updated in quite a bit, since Taylor has been busy rehearsing and recording brand new material. When I meet with her, I get a vibe like a cross between Carrie Underwood and Christina Aguilera. This girl can do it all. We are so excited to record this awesome single we co-wrote with young and talented producer Eddie T. Ellis. Look for it soon on Itunes.

"Taylor Beckett interview"

So now that my first interview was completed, a lovely young lady walked up and it was young actress and singer Taylor Beckett. So, of course, I asked her what she was doing there. “I’m actually singing at the event tonight,” said Taylor, who also worked on the show “Gene Simmons:Family Jewels.” But she has big plans for her immediate future. “I’m just working on my music right now and focusing on that,” she said. I suspect, judging by the great performance she did later that night, that her future will be bright.







Cher Rue (L) Lorraine Ziff (C) and Matthew Ziff.

Later, I ran into a couple of friends- a PR maven named Tamara Wentworth, who represents another friend of mine, Cher Rue. Of course Tamara wanted mention of her client and Cher Rue now has her own TV series. (There’s hope for me yet! Someone I know got a TV show!) We’ll do more on Cher Rue’s show in the future. Tamara also had two of her clients Lorraine Ziff and Matthew Ziff, on the red carpet, who just wrapped a movie, “Mansion of Blood,” with Gary Busey. “We’re doing a lot of things now,” said Lorraine Ziff. “We just did ‘Hardflip,’ (scheduled for release in 2012) with Rosanna Arquette and John Schneider.” The lovely ladies Lorraine Ziff and Cher Rue as well as handsome Matthew Ziff, obviously will be doing great things soon.







Barry W. Levy and Helena Santos Levy.

I also spoke to Helena Santos Levy, who worked on “American Reunion,” “In The Motherhood,” and “The Day Player,” among other movies and Barry W. Levy, a character actor who has worked on “Hawaii-Five O” and “Law and Order LA.” I also spoke to Drew Seeley, a good looking young man who starred in television series “The Closer” and in “One Tree Hill” and Actress Kate Seeley, his sister.







Drew Seeley.







Kate Seeley.

Later I saw a good photographer friend of mine, Scott Naide and I asked him, “so where are the big celebrities here?” He pointed to the guy next to us and it was Bronson Pelletier, star of the “Twilight” series of movies. I, of course had no idea who he was, because I’ve never seen any of the “Twilight” movies. But he was an incredibly nice guy. “It was amazing,” said Bronson Pelletier, when I asked him how working on that series was. “The comraderie was great, working with a lot of my friends. You really love it when you have fun with what you do.” I have to admit, I was very surprised to see such a popular young man standing around with no airs whatsoever.






Ashley Barker.

I also talked to a really pretty young lady, Ashley Barker, who worked on a movie “Bring It On: In It To Win It.” She was also a very grounded lady who is destined to become a big star.







Eric Roberts and a very embarrassed Scoop LA Publisher, Buddy Sampson.

I saw a couple of huge stars that I actually recognized. Gosh I feel like that guy in the GEICO commercial is asking me, “Have you been hiding under a rock?” There were many stars I didn’t recognize, but I saw a few I did. I saw Eric Roberts and I think that he thought I was a rabid fan when I asked him if I could take a picture of him. He said, “I’ll only do it if you are in the picture with me.” I reluctantly agreed. Then he kept on asking me if I was satified with the picture and honestly, I didn’t want to be in the picture in the first place, so I was a little embarrassed. So I tried to tell him who I was and asked him if I could get a quote. He said something to the effect of “this is a good quote, don’t take any wooden nickles.” I knew I wasn’t going to get anywhere with him. He was a real hoot, a very funny guy. So I said to myself, “let’s take a walk around the club.” I went upstairs and I immediately saw Camille Winbush. You may know Camille as the fresh teenager on “The Bernie Mac Show,” and “The Secret Life of American Teenager.” I had a television show for 6 years called “People You Should Know,” and Camille was a guest on that show. The fantastically gorgeous lady, with skin that is flawless, also appeared at an event for which I was the publicist for, a fundraiser for the Community Health Alliance of Pasadena (CHAP.) I reminded her of both and she said “Oh yeah.” But she had that deer in the headlights look that told me that she didn’t know me from a can of paint. So I asked her did she really remember me and of course she didn’t.






Katie Blair, Miss California 2011.

My ego sufficiently bruised, I saw this incredible blonde and I thought, maybe I can amuse myself by talking to her. Turns out, she was Katie Blair, the 2011 Miss California pageant winner. I tried to act like it wasn’t a big deal, but I’d never met a pageant winner before. Okay, well I met and interviewed Vanessa Williams, but that was after she became an actress. (Does that count?) Anyway, we had a brief conversation and then Quinton Aaron, the star of “The Blind Side,” walked up. Katie went to talk to him. Oh well, a bigger name. And he is really a bigger name. The guy is huge. He took a picture with Katie and Camille Winbush did, too.







Quinton Aaron and Katie Blair.

Phil Jones and PIC organized a fine event and I want to give him props for giving me a VIP bracelet. I’m a little worried though. I think the rock I’ve been hiding under has been a little heavy. Maybe I need you guys to help me get it off me. But it was very nice to meet a cadre of young stars. Special thanks to Erin Schnicker and Alicia Dahl for letting me get The Scoop on a wonderful event.
