2015 Celebrity Sightings

Some Burners will go “who cares”…but if you type “Burning Man” into Google and set time to “past 24 hours” under Search Tools, you will see that this is the main story being discussed on the Internet about Burning Man. Celeb coverage includes Business Insider, Harper’s Bazaar, New York Post, Hollywood Life, Marie Claire.

It seems that many people very much do care. Where else can regular folks party with billionaires and A-list stars, for only $400?

Maybe later in the week there will be other Burning Man news on the Internet for us to discuss. Hey, if you don’t like this story, write your own! We welcome guest posts.

Susan Sarandon got a lot of press for carrying Timothy Leary’s ashes in a procession to their final resting place under a masturbating nun, before they were merged with the rest of the ash after the Totem of Confessions burned.

Katy Perry made her Burning Man debut with video of her falling off a Segway, which has gone viral globally – 511,000 likes just on her Instagram feed.

Jared Leto handed out oranges. Diddy tended bar. Leonardo di Caprio was a rumored sighting last year, this year his girlfriend was confirmed.

Voices of Burning Man reports that “soccer star Ronaldo” was there, asking to be gifted some merch at Robot Heart [NB: the sport is called football, because you kick the ball with your foot, not hold it in your hands]. Turns out it was Ronaldo Lima, not current Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo.

2015 Which Famous Assholes Are Going To Burning Man?

Last year Joe Kokura over at BrokeAssStuart published an amusing list of potential celebrity Burners. Well, he’s updated it with a 2015 version:

 

BMassholes

WHICH FAMOUS A**HOLES ARE GOING TO BURNING MAN THIS YEAR?

Who are the rich and famous a**holes you’ll see turnt up at the turnkey camps of Burning Man 2015?  Based on their public comments, social media posts and history of going to Burning Man every year because they can afford to, we’ve updated last year’s Which Famous Assholes are Going to Burning Man list to determine which famous assholes will be arriving in private jets to plug-and-play at the the Burning Man 2015 festival.

Realize there is no way to say definitively say whether a person is going to Burning Man almost four weeks out from the event. Health issues, spontaneous weddings or unplanned life events can come at you fast and alter your calendar no matter your socioeconomic status. Perfectly good Burners have to cancel their Burning Man plans every year, and this is even truer for wealthy asshole Burners.. But from what can we can tell from public remarks and social media shit-talking, these are the richest, most famous assholes going to Burning Man 2015.

Burning Man Influencing The World [Update]

We are everywhere! Here we have the latest fashion from the 2015 Grammy Awards. Clearly Burner-inspired…

Joy Villa, a model/actress and recording artist, took her cue from Burning Man’s trash fence. She up-cycled her nudity. Very avant garde…This is a Bjork-in-a-swan level publicity stunt.

The dress was designed by a San Diego man, who “just made a superstar”.

From NBC San Diego:

The Grammy gown — or snow fence dress or orange dress or whatever name you’ve heard it called — that everyone is talking about was designed by a San Diego man.

In fact, it debuted here three years ago.

The gown is part of Andre Soriano’s vintage collection, and before New York-based artist Joy Villa walked it down the red carpet at the Grammys on Sunday, it made its runway debut during San Diego Fashion Week in 2012.

“I was like, ‘Girl, you wanna take over the planet? I have a gown for you,’” Soriano told SoundDiego.

Up until about a week ago, Soriano and Villa didn’t know each other. Then her agent called him about dressing the artist for the Grammys.

“” just forewarned [Villa],” Soriano sayid. “ ‘You’re going to trend in the best and the worst.‘ But she’s an artist. She really has an amazing voice, and I channeled her.”

Though Soriano had a few options for her (“I have a purple gown that has a train longer than the 101 Freeway,” Soriano said, laughing), he pushed the orange gown made of recycled snow- or construction-fencing material — like what you’d see at a ski run.

“Orange is the new black!” Soriano exclaimed. “I thought that was just a perfect position for her to just make a statement, really, and I highly suggested the orange gown. The minute she stepped foot on the red carpet, she was being pulled left and right. Everyone is like, ‘Who is Joy Villa?’ And they’re like, ‘Andre, you just made a superstar.’ And I was like, ‘I did?’
