Mastering the Winter Music Conference is an art to some, especially for Florian Picasso, the 23-year-old grandson of the legendary Pablo, who will spin March 29 at Bâoli. Picasso is said to be making an impressive mark on the tech-house and dance music scene, an aurally explosive scene that makes some of us want to follow in the footsteps of another great artist, Vincent Van Gogh, and cut our ears off. To each his own. The event, meanwhile, is free. Doors open at 7 p.m., and Picasso starts spinning at around 11:30 p.m. According to insiders, there will be a surprise DJ appearance.

They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.
