Cute smile and a gorgeous princess blue dress, Connie Chong nips past us as she walks down the red carpet. We catch a whiff of her perfume, smells somewhat familiar, but can’t remember from where. Very distinct, however, not exactly telling as to the character of its bearer. She takes out her first cigarette not a second after we have entered the VIP lounge, where she lights it up, inhales and puffs out smoke, which engulfs her like a protective veil.
“…Welcome to Earth…” an electro song greets the newcomer and her guests, her ten girlfriends, who lavishly ensconce themselves on the three sided couch, surrounded by photographers and people who tried to sneak their way into the VIP world. But, no chance, Connie is merciless, as she throws the intruders out of her private lounge single handedly. We get lucky and mercy is bestowed upon us, as she tells us we can stay. A shot is offered to our writer/singer, Katharina Harer, soon after by an attentive waitress, which she drinks slowly, while taking in all the activity around her. Connie seems like a princess living in a fairy tale. It is her world. Out of thin air, the waitress materializes again, taking Katharina’s empty glass, and handing her a new one. She is shocked, but drinks obediently.
For Connie and her friends, this is nothing special, although she does seem to know how to appreciate and enjoy her life and all the special attention and luxuries it brings, despite the fact that she seems to not know a different lifestyle.
Our eyes wander over to Rapper Ditch: dark shades, dark hat and a lot of bling-bling around his neck. But his smile betrays him: he offers Katharina a drink and a hug and his phone number. However, Ditch is a professional rapper, not conqueror of hearts. Even though, maybe he is a little bit of both, or maybe he is a lot of both, we are not sure anymore. He definitely got his career going and is on top of what he does. His talent and looks together with his attitude make him a rare combination in the rap artist scene. We are sure we’ll hear more from him very soon.
Snoop Dogg is ‘in da house’ and is taking over the mike. He charms Connie with a smile and a birthday greeting, we sing, we are all singing. The club’s eyes are all on her, as she stands on her balcony like Rapunzel, except her hair isn’t that long, or blond, but her breath and her stamina are. Snoop Dogg, considered one of the world’s best rappers amazes everyone with his music. Everybody loves him. He exudes an aloofness similar to Connie, however much stronger.
Connie is on stage in the midst of go-go dancers and trapeze artists. The light show is fantastic. She looks comfortable always being the center of attention and with the constant flashes of the cameras in her face. Our friends the photographers have shot almost everything you can get a shot of in this club which brings back childhood memories of the circus arena. Can you party all night long? Again, we’re left wondering, as we leave the club to get to our next show.
