Which One Needs To Calm Down?Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 11:50 am.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Russell Simmons always talking about being centered, joyful, peaceful and all of those other “woosah” related words?
If so, why was he acting saltier than a bottle of Lawry’s (shout out to T-Boz for the original celebrity endorsement) over his seating at a Charlotte Ronson’s show at New York Fashion Week?
An eyewitness told Radar Online:
“He flipped out over his seating. He thought his seat was given away and lost it on some poor staffer on the runway moments away from the show’s start.
‘When I walked in here, there was like 40 seats,’ Simmons was heard griping. ‘Now, there’s nothing. Where am I supposed to sit?’
When the girl didn’t reply promptly enough the hip-hop king, who preaches the benefit of the calming effect of his yoga prowess, angrily demanded, ‘Where’s your boss? Where’s the lady in charge? Who do I have to talk to? Come on now.’
After talking to the head seater of the show, Simmons was still not pacified, and let her have it. In the midst of the tirade the staffer asked him to ‘please calm down’ which prompted Simmons to fume ‘I am calm! I’m a calm person!’
He sounds about as calm as a knife fight.
