Liza Minnelli Got a Little Too Fucked Up at a Fancy Benefit

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Liza “With A Z, Not Lisa With An S” Minnelli was honored at the New York Landmarks Conservancy awards at the Plaza on Thursday and partied like a sorority girl in a foreign country. Though her beverage of choice is a mystery, Minnelli drank and chain-smoked throughout the night, and by the time she got onstage to accept her award, she was “a total mess… clung to the podium for dear life and preceded to slur her way, rambling, unable to sing,” says an attendee, adding “I think she was attempting ‘New York, New York.'”

LIZA. You are too (metaphorically) large and (literally) drunk to be contained by this earthly sphere. This photo and this one are my personal favorites. Keep making those jazz hands into the void, you classy old broad. [NYDN]

Like Chernobyl, the fallout of the Selena Gomez/Justin Bieber split will continue to affect generations to come. There are some new photos of a Bieberless and “sad” (conjecture!) Selena Gomez at LAX. Rumored “other woman,” Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin, after being bum-rushed by leagues of angry Beliebers, Tweets: “hey everyone, please calm down. he is all yours!! 🙂 please.” And here is The Beebz himself, on a radio show: “I don’t know what to say. I don’t know what’s going on in my life.” [Us Weekly, NYDN]

Meanwhile, a source claims, “It’s just not over.” IT STILL ISN’T OVER. [Radar Online]

Leonardo DiCaprio had his 38th birthday party at a nightclub called The Darby Downstairs and a shit-ton of famous people were there. The DJ for the event told the press that the girls at the event were all over Leo, but he was more into hanging out with the dudes. At one point “Leo was on the mic beat-boxing to 2 Chainz,” but unfortunately, we have no video evidence of this because he made everyone check their phones at the door. Just like in Gossip Girl.
