SCHOOL GIRL CRUSH: Vincent Gallo (To Have A Baby By Vincent Gallo You Need To Be A Millionaire)

I first stumbled upon this strange yet beautiful creature in the early 90’s starring in Calvin Klein ads. His striking looks either confused you or intrigued you. As time went on, I started to see him more often. If he wasn’t starring in a dark Indie Film like “Buffalo ’66” or “Brown Bunny” or modeling in major fashion campaigns, he could be found galavanting in the streets of New York acting out as the controversial man that he is known to be.

Vincent Gallo is an American film director, writer, model, actor and musician.

“Gallo was born in Buffalo, New York, the son of Janet, a hair-dresser, and Vincenzo Vito Gallo, also a hairdresser and professional gambler. Both of his parents emigrated from Sicily, Italy. Gallo lived in New York City 1978–2002 and traveled around most of Europe living in Paris and Rome. Gallo’s first creative project was as a member of the New York City-based post-punkindustrial band GRAY whose members included famed artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.” – via Wikipedia


Gallo has had minor roles in mainstream films such as Goodfellas, Arizona Dream, The Funeral and Palookaville.  He is most known for his work with independent movies, including Buffalo ’66, which he wrote, directed, scored and starred in and The Brown Bunny, which he also wrote, directed, produced, starred in and photographed (the film is famous for Gallo receiving actual on camera oral sex via Chloe Sevigny).


In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Gallo was a painter in the New York City art scene showing with famed art dealer Annina Nosei, performed in a rap duo and was part of the first hip hop television broadcast Graffiti Rock, and played in an industrial band called Bohack which released an album title It Took Several Wives.


Part of Gallo’s appeal is that he is stark raving mad – in my opinion. He is a supporter of the Republican Party, and has been seen at a New York fashion show with George W. Bush’s daughters Barbara and Jenna. Gallos has stated that his fantasy is “becoming more like the stereotype of the Republican Party.” He also wishes to look “more like American conservative journalist George Will.” In his own words, Gallo “considered himself a radical, always, but an extremely conservative radical.”

This man is so crazy, I love it! Take for example the “Merchandise” section of his personal website (which I discovered years ago), under “Personal Services” you can find options like “VINCENT GALLO evenings, weekends escort” where for a mere $50,000 you can have a date with this Italian Stallion (“Ladies Only” as stated on his website). See an excerpt below.


“I, Vincent Gallo, star of such classics as Buffalo 66 and The Brown Bunny have decided to make myself available to all women. All women who can afford me, that is. For the modest fee of $50,000 plus expenses, I can fulfill the wish, dream, or fantasy of any naturally born female. The fee covers one evening with Vincent Gallo. For those who wish to enjoy my company for a weekend, the fee is increased to a mere $100,000. Heavy set, older, red heads and even black chicks can have me if they can pay the bill. No real female will be refused. However, I highly frown upon any male having even the slightest momentary thought or wish that they could ever become my client. No way Jose. However, female couples of the lesbian persuasion can enjoy a Vincent Gallo evening together for $100,000. $200,000 buys the lesbos a weekend. A weekend that will have them second-guessing…
Potential clients are advised to screen the controversial scene from The Brown Bunny to be sure for themselves that they can fully accommodate all of me. Clients who have doubt may want to test themselves with an unusually thick and large prosthetic prior to meeting me. You may be surprised just how much you can handle and how good it feels.”

Wait – it gets better! For $1,000,000.00 you can get Vincent Gallo’s Sperm! Yes, you read that right. Sounds like a bargain, right?! Read another incredible excerpt below…

Though a fan of Franco Harris, Derek Jeter, Lenny Kravitz and Lena Horne, Mr. Gallo does not want to be part of that type of integration. In fact, for the next 30 days, he is offering a $50,000 discount to any potential female purchaser who can prove she has naturally blonde hair and blue eyes. Anyone who can prove a direct family link to any of the German soldiers of the mid-century will also receive this discount. Under the laws of the Jewish faith, a Jewish mother would qualify a baby to be deemed a member of the Jewish religion. This would be added incentive for Mr. Gallo to sell his sperm to a Jew mother, his reasoning being with the slim chance that his child moved into the profession of motion picture acting or became a musical performer, this connection to the Jewish faith would guarantee his offspring a better chance at good reviews and maybe even a prize at the Sundance Film Festival or an Oscar. To be clear, the purchase of Mr. Gallo’s sperm does not include the use of the name Gallo. The purchaser must find another surname for the child.”

I forgot how hilarious this man is. I had a good morning laugh just now…ahhh.

LIFE: Dining With Joey Bada$$ x Run-In With Angelo Baque and Rafael Rios

Last night I finally got the long-overdue chance to have dinner with my label mate, Joey Bada$$. While I waited for him at the bar, I ran into Angelo Baque and Rafael Rios who were also having dinner and waiting for a table. By the time Joey showed up, there was a table for 4 available and we decided to merge our dinners into one. It was a good time and I got to play with my new favorite toy, the Fuji Mini Instax.
