Madonna: 'I Was Relying on Gladiators from Indiana'

Inside Hennessy's Hip-Hop Weekend

Think you don’t like cognac? Then you weren’t in attendance at one of the Hennessy parties this weekend. The company’s mixologist, Jordan Bushell, blended a roster of fruity cocktails that made believers out of us.

If we’re going to pillory hip-hop sensation M.I.A.—and plenty of folks have done so since she flipped the bird while performing with Madonna Sunday night—we had better consider what that reaction implies. In a word: sexism. Plain and simple. Hear me out before bringing on the bromides.

Wise Words

Scotty’s Brewhouse owner Scott Wise is catering for 200 people over at Jimmy Fallon’s place tonight, capping a Super Bowl media blitz that included a shout-out from Fallon’s band on the show and a cameo on The Today Show yesterday. Our favorite Scotty’s moment came Friday, when Wise held court in the Bartender Wisdom spotlight on Esquire.com. In it, he revealed his dislike of whiskey and baked beans. And he tactfully abstained from over-hyping Indy as the Portland of the Midwest. “Indiana’s Indiana.

Party Band LMFAO transforms Indy into "Jersey Shore"

No one was sorry for party rocking in Indy late Friday evening as LMFAO stormed the Verizon Stage. (Well, maybe these 13 people were sorry.) The performance had all the elements of a “Jersey Shore” marathon on MTV, from teased hair to the very “JS” theme song itself (“Get Crazy”).

Jon Hamm: Caught Slipping into Playboy Party

Jon Hamm tried to slip past the red carpet at the Playboy party unnoticed last night. But we ran him down. “Don Draper” looked dapper but downtempo. This Super City reporter got the Mad Men hunk to stop for an on-the-run snap by calling out his recent segment on the podcast Sklarbro Country, with the comedians Randy and Jason Sklar, who hail from Hamm’s hometown of St. Louis.
