Bonnie McKee checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@bonniemckee) on Friday (November 14), after debuting some of her new material at a club in the heart of New York City’s Chinatown. Not having a band available, McKee performed to backing tracks for the first time, with an audience that included a celebrity. She writes:
So as I’m pacing back and fourth looking at this horrible stage situation trying to figure out what the hell I’m gonna do to keep this show entertaining, who do I see milling about? Ryan fu**ing Gosling. Awesome. This is gonna be great. Like what the hell am I supposed to do with that? He’s gonna be standing like three feet away from me while I’m conducting this musical experiment before his eyes. Maybe I’ll run and jump into his arms at the end of a song? In my freaking pink and blue outer space outfit?
Yeah. Or maybe not.
It was less that R G is so scary or intimidating and more that everyone else thinks he is, and that everyone else now perceives the pressure as being higher. Now everyone’s watching him watch me. Rad. What they don’t know is that actors don’t scare me. It’s the scrutinizing musicians that are terrifying. I’ve been in much scarier situations with Jack White, and that was just waiting at the airport. (check the blog hahahaha)
