Elton John Will Foster the People, Plus Psychics Are Making Oscar Predictions


Elton John‘s annual amazing AIDS Foundation dinner for the Oscars has chosen a special guest rock group to perform for its patrons: Foster the People. That’s show no one wants to miss, believe me. I’m sure Elton will join them on a couple of numbers. The Elton John party is also moving from its tent at the Pacific Design Center across San Vincente Boulevard into a new park and tent — it’s supposed to be quite the structure. Viva Elton John AIDS Foundation. …

…Are stars consulting psychics about Oscar possibilities? If they’re not the publicists probably are. Taking off like a rocket this week is where live psychics are available 24/7. Boy the internet has changed everything from the days of Dionne Warwick pitching her psychic network on infomercials…With the way things are going, I may try out this service. You never know. I am assured, however, there is no gambling involved. But I’d love to know what the psychics think is going to happen to Don Draper…
