Joel Zimmerman is no FOM (fan of Miami). The man otherwise known as Deadmau5 (pronounced “Deadmouse”) proclaimed on Twitter that he will no longer come here to perform. Why all the whining? Apparently, a few VIP sorts in the front row at his New Year’s Day show at Mansion were futzing with their cellphones, and he was annoyed. During a chat on his Deadmau5 Live site the electronica star wrote: “I f---ing reamed out my agent for making me deal with that. Putting fans in the back and trust fund kids up front is f---ing stupid as f--k.” Rather than play anywhere in Miami again, the cranky Canadian would “rather rent a venue / parking lot / beachfront and f---in’ do it right.”
Bachelorette contestant alert: Brooks Forester, the ABC matchmaker show’s finalist whose rejection of Desiree Hartsock reduced her to tears in Antigua last year, was in town for NY Eve. Forester was at Haven Gastro Lounge with fellow bachelor/housemate Michael Garofola, who posted a pic of the handsome lads on his Instagram account. Nice to see something positive came out of that heartbreak: A bromance.
Bruce Springsteen’s daughter is a rock star of a different sort. Jessica Springsteen, whose mom is The Boss’ wife/bandmate Patti Scialfa, is a champion show jumper. On Sunday, the 22-year-old will be front and center at the second annual Trump Invitational Grand Prix, co-hosted by Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach. Jessica will be well dressed. The young lady recently joined Monaco royal Charlotte Casiraghi as a Gucci “equestrian ambassador” and will debut a personalized riding wardrobe designed by Creative Director Frida Giannini.
Aw, jeez. Beyoncé stepped in it again. While in town, the supersinger posted an Instagram photo of herself in front of a replica of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, with her bootilicious body covering the image of Jesus Christ. The Single Ladies singer posed in front of the Andy Warhol mural at Jugofresh’s Wynwood location, appearing to sit in the middle of the table in the spot occupied by Jesus.
Tim Wildmon, president of American Family Association, isn’t amused. “This is clearly an act of disrespect towards Jesus Christ, whom Beyonce covers up with her pose. This had to be done intentionally,” he wrote in an e-mail to The Miami Herald.
Beyoncé just issued an apology for using six seconds of audio transmission recorded soon after the 1986 Challenger shuttle disaster in her song XO.
Home sweet home

When you’re famous you go where it’s hot — literally. Celebs flee to Mexico, Hawaii, the Caribbean and of course, Miami. Taking in the beach was beyond gorgeous Brazilian model Julie Pereira.

I'm wearing white in honor to my country's tradition Brazil!!!! #peace #love #health #happiness Feliz ano novo!!!” Obrigado.
