LIV DJ celebrates Grammy win

 

Congrats to Miami Beach-based DJ Cedric Gervais, resident DJ at LIV and Story nightclubs who on Sunday night won a Grammy for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical category for his mash-up of Lana Del Rey's Summertime Sadness. Gervais, 34, thanked his agent, manager and Del Rey for “letting me touch a classic.” Also letting him touch one of her songs is Miley Cyrus, who heard the Del Rey remix and tapped Gervais to remix her single Adore You. Gervais told Forbes the two met in Miami and that, “She’s very touchy about remixes of songs, [but] I remixed one and sent it to her. She loves it.” Gervais will celebrate his big win with a party Friday at Story. “We are all so proud of him and Miami should be super proud,” says LIV and Story honcho Dave Grutman.

Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union and Chris Bosh were seen dining Thursday at Sea Salt & Pepper after the Heat win against the LA Lakers. Also with them was Lamar Odom, who was getting lots of attention “from women and,” says our spy, “liking it.” The recently beleaguered Odom, we're told, was all smiles, but sources say he was not drinking and in great spirits. There on Saturday, the cast of A Change of Heart, the new flick produced by Emilio Estefan and based on a story he created: Jim Belushi, William Levy, Kathy Najimy, Virginia Madsen, Kenny Ortega and Cody Horn.

John Malkovich cabbed it Saturday to Wynwood's Supply & Advise men's clothing store, where, says our spy, “he bought a little bit of everything — bags, sweaters, accessories, belts, gifts, key chains, and jackets.”

Rick Ross will put his bowling skills to the test on Thursday at the Hennessy Black and Chris Chambers, C.A.T.C.H. 84 Foundation's annual Strikes for Scholarships celebrity pro-bowl. Proceeds raised will be donated to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County. Additional celebrity bowlers include OJ McDuffie, Channing Crowder and pro athlete Chazz Woodson.

Saturday afternoon the San Antonio Spurs practiced on the JW Marriott Marquis NBA-approved indoor basketball court to prepare for their game against the Miami Heat Sunday. The same night, head coach Gregg Popovich relaxed with a glass of wine at db Bistro Moderne’s Lounge while star player Tony Parker dined with a friend on his usual favorite dish, foie gras. On Saturday, Popovich and staff had dinner at Scarpetta, enjoying “lots of fine wine before losing to the Heat,” says our spy.

    Tales of worldy travels take ghostly turn

    Among contemporary American authors, William T. Vollmann’s project is unique. There is simply no other writer on the map who purchased a Thai sex slave, tried to fight with mujahideen rebels in Afghanistan and almost died in the Arctic Circle. And that’s just for starters. Vollmann has traveled to war zones, pored over the U.S.-Mexico border and made a study of the world’s destitute. His mammoth curiosity encompasses questions of war, morality, economics, lifestyle, gender, aesthetics, art and music.
