I have a sister, my Uncle Wynne has always called Cherry Joy. This shop in Little Russia, West Hollywood where I live always reminds me of her. She’s naughty, mischief fun, yet everyone thinks she’s such a good girl. How does she manage to achieve that, I wonder? She could be a politician!
The skies today above Little Russia’s Cherry Shop (pictured) remind me of how one’s endorphines levels can skyrocket through the hemisphere when you’re around Cherry and she’s in a funny mood. She’s sort of like Bette Midler in the movie, Ruthless People, she’s always losing 10 pounds and she’s hysterically funny! She can make you laugh for hours being a total dork, with back-to-back non stop silly jones. I miss her today in celebrity land of Hollywood.
Fifteen celebrity news posts being bumped on social media right now worldwide on New Years Eve Day in Hollywood are these:
Oh, and here’s that Gaga girl (what’s her name?) Stefani Germanotta‘s bottom that she sent out to all her fans last night. I think she wants to be a pantsless version of Bruce Springsteen in the 80′s Born to Run days. What do you think of Lady Gaga’s bottom? A little corny, this marketing? Or sexy? Girl is looking quite toned there. The unicorn thing? Ugh! So unus comu cliched.
However, many people see the unicorn as being a spiritual symbol. Legend has it (in fairy tale stories) that a unicorn is selfless. So I’m confused as to what it’s doing on Lady Gaga’s derriere? Another aspect of this symbol she’s introducing into pop culture, is that a fairytale meaning of the unicorn’s horn is that it is said to ‘neutralize poison.’ That’s not a bad thought.
As Gaga is so influential on kids of the world, indeed even on this blog, I think it’s good she’s moving forward from ‘monster zombies’ eg: creatures that eat their young. That’s been done done done as a recession metaphor, so yes, we’ll take the one horned horse then.
An animal called the re’em (Hebrew: רְאֵם) is mentioned in several places in the Hebrew Bible, often as a metaphor representing strength. “The allusions to the re’em as a wild, un-tamable animal of great strength and agility, with mighty horn or horns (Job xxxix. 9-12; Ps. xxii. 21, xxix. 6; Num. xxiii. 22, xxiv. 8; Deut. xxxiii. 17; comp. Ps. xcii. 11), best fit the aurochs (Bos primigenius). This view is supported by the Assyrian rimu, which is often used as a metaphor of strength, and is depicted as a powerful, fierce, wild mountain bull with large horns.” This animal was often depicted in ancient Mesopotamian art in profile, with only one horn visible.
The translators of the Authorized King James Version of the Bible (1611) followed the Greek Deptuagint (monokeros) and the Latin Vulgate (unicornis) and employed unicorn to translate re’em, providing a recognizable animal that was proverbial for its un-tamable nature. The American Standard Version translates this term “wild ox” in each case.

- “His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth.”–Deuteronomy 33:17
- “Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib? Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee? Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him? Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?”–Job 39:9-12
- “Save me from the lion’s mouth; for thou hast heard me from the horns of unicorns.”–Psalms: 22:21

GaGa depois da virada do ano divulgou a data oficial do lançamento do primeiro single de seu novo CD ‘Born This Way’, e a primeira foto promocional da era do seu novo álbum tirada pelo fotógrafo Nick Knight. O primeiro single sai dia 13 de fevereiro, no mesmo dia da premiação americana do Grammy Awards, e seu álbum será lançado no dia 23 de Maio.–Whatever Day Whatever Blog.
By the way, just as interesting as Lady Gaga’s ass, is this trivial fact about West Hollywood. Right opposite the Cherry Shop is The Odessa Grocery Store pictured. Betcha didn’t know that. Needless to say, if you’re talking horned beasts, unlike Wikipedia recommends you immediately need to head to The Book of Revelations to find out what their symbolism means. They’re a symbol of last days, end times as penned by the Apostle of Love – John in his revelationary spirit dream sequence Apparently. Horns rising/ appearing refer to key aspects in world history, particularly the emergence of one world leader. Bet you didn’t know that either. Another reason why I like to celebrity blog – symbols are placed on pop stars by other people to send a message. That fascinates me. Visible pop stars are always messengers of unseen others. Gosh – I wonder if I should have a hair of a dog, to get rid of last night’s NYE hang over. The coffee and donuts for breakfast, have worn off already like the afterglow wow of a Battleship Potemkin ‘movie scene’ via The Untouchables or something. Such good moments of Hollywood history. Lol!
