Fancy a Painting?

If any of you have $ 25.000  and want to spend them, here's your chance!

    Vincent Gallo  is selling a portrait of himself by Julian Schnabel on eBay for $25,000, explaining, "I don't want it, and it's too valuable to give away. I'd rather buy shoes."

    3. You don't need to contact him directly. It's on eBay.

      Also, the NYP article is more in depth, since he talks about selling his house in LA. Although I don't know if he gave a direct quote to the Post or what, since he's said before he hates the Page Six people.

    4. Here's my progress via ebay so far lol:

      Dear VG,

      If I decide to buy can I get a reduced price on your sperm or escort services? My girlfriend's birthday is coming up soon and I want to surprise her.

      Love your work by the way.

      - ME

      Dear ME,

      sure 50% off on the sperm or escort if you buy the painting. both are gifts that keep on giving

      - VG

      Dear VG,

      50% seems very generous. To be honest, I think I'm moving more towards the idea of escorting. Not that the sperm isn't great, it's just that I don't know if I want little Gallo children at this time in my life and the storage of sperm is very, very expensive. And it's either that or my fridge.

      If I do choose the escort option then there's a few things I'll need to run past you, but right now my main question to you is this: Would you be willing to jump out of a giant cake wearing only grey speedos with the name 'Angelica' stitched on the back? And would you be willing to sing Happy Birthday to her? That was two questions, apologies.

      Lots of love.

      - ME

      I await his response to my questions.

    7. Why, why, why downtown LA Vincent? The Hills are better.

    8. I post two tongue in cheek emails and I get called a jerk (probably by Vincent himself) Lighten up, dear. I'm only teasing.

    9. I hardly think Vincent would use the word jerk. Do you? He's far more literate than that. as for me i tell it a bit more simply.

    10. Kirsten Dunst . . . she's a jerk . . . Winona Ryder . . . she's a jerk
      That's some jerk from Screen International
      Tammy "Sick Sick Sick and Ugly Ugly Ugly" Rosen, that jerk
      And a bunch of surfer jerks were standing there smirking.
      I'd rather be called anything else--like a big asshole, a jerk, ugly, anything but that.
      If you need Tarantino cultural recovery, then you are a jerk and you have no need for art.
      Do I sound like a jerk babbling about chicks?

      I'd say Vincent uses jerk quite alot. lol

    11. Hilarious. I think he really hates you if he calls you a savage. Jerk isn't so bad.
