Norah Jones May Or May Not Have Bedbugs

image via Curbed NYOk fine: it was getting a little "all bedbugs all the time" up in here for awhile, but this one was just doo damn juicy to ignore.

Apparently there is lil ole bedbug problem on the street in Cobble Hill where Norah Jones lives, and her friendly neighbors are more than happy to just place blame for the whole friggin thing on her. Oh, also, apparently there IS an upside to getting your place infested and bedbuggy after all!

"Danielle Gelfand takes the contrarian view in New York Press, arguing that bed bugs actually did good things for her building because they allowed her to finally bond with the neighbors she hadn't spoken to in 10 years. One way they bonded: by blaming someone else for the bug problem. Namely, Norah Jones: 'As the meeting started, a huge truck pulled up outside. For a moment, I got excited, thinking, Maybe it’s some sort of hazmat-style bug elimination team! But then I realized it was ABC Carpet and Home, delivering Norah Jones’ (who lives nearby) new furniture.'"

I have no clue if any of this shit is true, but I bet if Norah let the neighbors swim in her inground pool, they'd be willing to let this WHOLE thing go.

Jake Gyllenhaal-n-Taylor Swift Go Gorilla

Wanna know who's NOT still protesting Gorilla Coffe? JAKE GYLLENHAAL AND TAYLOR MOTHERFUCKING SWIFT, THAT'S WHO!

I'm sincerely disappointed that not one of you btchz managed to snap an iPhone photo to send to me, but whatevs...I got Just Jared to keep me informed.

Apparently the two love birds were buyin some beans at Gorilla, canoodling in front of onlookers and just, you know, being thankful.

What's next Jakey-Tay...a Food Coop shift? Inquiring minds want to know.

When Adrian Grenier Is Not Working At The Food Coop, He's Jogging In Prospect Park

At least according to this interview from the L Magazine with him and his band the Honey Brothers:

Do you have a favorite park in Brooklyn?

I have a new appreciation for Prospect Park. Growing up in Manhattan I didn't get out to this side of Brooklyn much, but since I moved here it's been an awesome park. In fact, every time I go running in that park, I'll be listening to music on my iPhone, and every once in a while I have to just pull over and take a picture of something that looks totally incongruous with what you normally find in the city [ed note: LIKE A GOOSE DEATH CHAMBER, FOR INSTANCE?? OR A SEVERED GOAT HEAD??]. I took this picture of a horse tied to a tree with these blooming cherry blossoms, and it felt like I was in a fantasy, but in fact it was Brooklyn, and it was kind of remarkable.

Remarkable indeed.

If you're so inclined, you can go check out the Honey Brothers at their benefit show for the Open Space Alliance at the Music Hall of Williamsburg this Sat.

And sidenote: first person to send me an cell phone pic of Adrain Grenier running in the park in short shorts wins a lifetime supply of my undying love-n-respect.

OMGZ Taylor and Jake! Gossip Mags! Etcetera!

Sooo, who among us spotted Taylor Swift canoodling on the streets of our fair Park Slope with Jake Gyllenhaal yesterday, walking "arm in arm?" 

"'Taylor and Jake were walking around Park Slope holding hands,' says a source. 'They looked like a couple!' This is totally believable because Jake’s sister Maggie Gyllenhaal lives in Park Slope with her husband Peter Sarsgaard and their 3-year-old daughter Ramona."

Goodness gracious me oh my, FIPS is like Gawker Brooklyn now. My mom's gonna be so proud.

FOXY BROWN IS FROM PARK SLOPE??

Yes, apparantly she is according to SOHH.com:

"I was on my way to rehearsal with my band and I was leaving my mom's house in Park Slope, [Brooklyn], where I always go; that's the home that I was born in."

Holy shit! Obvs I'm on top of the John Hodgman, Steve Buscemi, John Turturro scene, but I had no idea that Foxy used to kick it at Connecticut Muffin old skool style!?

Also, FYI, she'd like you all to know that she did NOT, as previously reported, moon her neighbor while screaming at her to kiss her ass and calling her a dirty bitch (and other obscenities). LIKE NOT AT ALL.

It's unclear to me from this story if this neighbor was actually in Park Slope (next to her mom's house) or not, but every girl deserves a dream, so I'm just gonna go with it.

Finally, I think we can all agree that with her love of luxurious fur coats, Foxy is a pretty killer candidate for bringing some fabulous back to Park Slope. I mean, right? Are you hearing this Faux FIPS???
