PAGE 10A HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 Drake undercut by stylist NEW YORK (6NoBacon Staff)--Drake's smooth look doesn't come cheap espe- cially if you're the one dress- ing him. According to papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, the Canadian rapper owes former stylist Michael Raphael more than $70,000 in fees and expenses, the New York Daily News reports. Last summer Drake hired Raphael, the owner of a high- end Manhattan boutique he frequented, to help him with his "brand direction." Transla- tion: He hired Raphael to pick out his clothing, which isn't as easy as it sounds. In preparation for the American Music Awards in November, for example, Ra- phael says he had to travel from Los Angeles to New York just to fetch a "custom- designed chain and pendant." Raphael also claims Drake asked him to move to Toronto but did not reimburse him for rent. Then there were the thousands of dollars of items he bought for Drake at Foot Locker, Nike and J. Crew. Raphael says Drake fired him in December before paying back any of the money he shelled out. According to the New York Post, Raphael is seeking com- pensation plus an award for breach of contract. The grand total: $76,000.

Rivers, Midler rip Miley's VMA romp While the promo for the MTV Video Music Awards fea- tured Macklemore and Ryan Lewish blowing a shofar, Sun- day's show in Brooklyn didn't offer much Jewish content. The big talk was the racy performance by Miley Cyrus that included provocative dancing and other bizarre actions. Miley's moves caused a couple of outspoken Jew- ish women, Joan Rivers and Bette Midler, to share their opinions. Rivers tweeted, "Miley Cyrus at the VMAs last night reminds me of Can@land the easiest game in town and everyone gets a turn." Midler offered: "Did you see @MileyCyrus on the VMA's? Does her tongue hanging out mean she's dehydrated?" Pretty much what the Jew- ish mother in us was think- ing, too. Brody to play Houdini The History cable network is putting together a four-hour miniseries on the life Harry Houdini, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, "The Pianist" starAdrien Brody has signed on to play the legend- ary Jewish magician. "Houdini" will track the rabbi's son from his poor roots to a life of celebrity. "Since my childhood, when I dreamed of being a great magician, Harry Houdini has been one of my heroes," Wikipedia Adrien Brody will play Harry Houdini in miniseries on the History cable network. Brody said. "His bravery and obsessive determination still fascinate me. Houdini mas- tered the art of escape --not only from physical chains, but from poverty and the social constraints of a humble im- migrant origin. His life story appeals to the universal long- ing for acceptancewithwhich we all can identify. To portray him is beyond an honor." Kristen Connolly from "House of Cards" will play his wife, Bess. Bar to boycotter Waters: Remove my photo Pink Floyd front-man Roger Waters has rather publicly encouraged aboycott of Israel. Now one well-known Israeli has a demand for him: Remove her photo from avideo he uses during his performances. "Roger Waters, you should remove my picture from vid- eos at your concerts. If you're going to boycott, then go all the way," Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli tweeted to her 500,000 followers last week, Her message followed Wa- ters' open letter to fellow musi- cians asking them tojoinwith him "and thousands of other artists around the world to declare a cultural boycott on Israel." Snap! Hopefully he'll heed her call and delete the shot. And who knows, maybe once he's on a roll, he'll drop the pig balloon and Nazi uniform, too.
