David Geffen, Vain? You’re Kidding Us Carly Simon

No it wasn’t Kris Kristofferson or Warren Beatty, but David Geffen that Carly Simon considered “so vain” — at least according to a new track that, when played in reverse, reveals the target’s first name. David, of course, is a big gay, and at the time was head of Simon’s Elektra label. But don’t confuse “enjoys having cute younger guys as his lovers,” like boyfriend Jeremy Lingvall, as vanity. That’d be jumping to conclusions.

UPDATE: Or not.

    Exactly which of us, if we were insanely rich, would NOT enjoy having cute young guys as our lovers, hmm? Or even if we weren’t insanely rich?

  • Forrest

    Not all gay men chase kids. Some of us are in wonderful relationships with other adult men. Why is that so hard to believe?

  • Aaron in Honolulu

    Jeremy Lingvall would have never dated this dinosaur if he was only making $40,000 a year. I’d give this relationship a few more months and then Mr. Lingvall will turn into record producer Jeremy Lingvall or director Jeremy Lingvall. Isn’t that how it always works???

    David Geffen is a Hollywood Power-broker with a Big Dick and a Casting Couch and threw the Clintons out of AirForce One because he chose “Barack Obama” for us! Wrong David or Carly Simon was really a slut! It’s probably David Crosby (who’s ego was responsible for the break-up of the Byrds and Julie Cypher’s sperm donor – Eww!) – who didn’t always look like the AARP guy.

  • Dirty Ole Man

    I have no earthly idea what this thread is about,
    but that is one hot picture. Just look at the chemistry
    between President Obama and that young hottie.
    Look at how he’s glaring at the President.
    That boy has a hard-on for powerful men..

    Joni Mitchell also wrote a song about him…

  • David

    The boytoy is 40 years younger than David. That’s really creepy… like banging your Grandpa. I’d love to eavesdrop drop on the conversation between these “lovers.”

  • Josh AZ

    The kid should make as much money as he can, as quickly as he can. Then, do what HE wants. Geffen is more than willing to “rent” friends and partners – he has his whole life.

  • Marcus

    @Josh AZ:

    So did Merv Griffin and others here in town.

    How many stories did I hear about some young thing you, “spent time” with big name here and he sent him iPods, cars and paid his rent.

    Good for Geffen LOL

  • Josh AZ

    @Marcus: Exactly. If you’re for rent – get as much as possible as quickly as possible. This kid is worth $100,000 a year, plus gifts and things. That’s small change for Geff.
