Here’s Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt at the Coachella Music Festival yesterday, and I gotta admit, there’s times I would. I’d do- *click* Whoa! My penis just pulled a gun, everybody. Okay, I’m stepping away from the keyboard. You’re in charge. You’re the man. My car keys? Here you go even though we both know you can’t drive stick. Haha, talk about irony. *click* I’ll be good.

Bollywood Actress Priyanka Chopra says she loves being the centre of the male gaze.
“I love the attention I get. Which girl doesn’t? To be considered hot is …cool! To be called the sexiest, the most desirable, etc in magazine and website polls is very flattering. I take it in my stride.
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and I’m glad a lot of men behold me. There’s no special man to make me feel special. Between my family and career there’s no room for for anyone else.”
Priyanka Chopra is busy playing a dozen desirable divas in the same frame. She has 12 roles to play Ashutosh Gowariker’s What’s Your Raashee.
But it was Hurman Baweja who slogged his butt off in the 3-day schedule of the film in Chicago.
Priyanka Chopra spent her time with her cousins in Chicago.
Sighs Priyanka Chopra, “It was more masti than work. We chose this time to shoot in Chicago because the script needed snow. And we got it in plenty.
I loooooove the snow. And since I’ve a lot of in family in America I called them over to Chicago. It was more fun than work really.”
Priyanka Chopra loves shooting in the US. “I love going to America. I’ve so much family there. Earlier during Dostana in Philadelphia I had a ball.
Now in Chicago 1-15 people including my Naani, my aunts and my cousins would be on the sets to visit me. And luckily there was very little work for me. It was Hurman’s character which is from Chicago.”
Priyanka Chopra was glad to have this chance to unwind. “I let Hurman do all the slogging. Raashee is a very taxing film for me.
This kind of role has never been done. For the first time in my career I plan to take a two-week holiday after Raashee.”
