Everything you want from spy camera’s backstage to the red carpet live streaming the Oscars 90
I’ve always loved performing, but it wasn’t until I was fourteen and I heard Adele’s first album that I became enthralled with the art of vocals. – Ruthie Craft
My team was sitting around the room at the The Roosevelt Hotel viewing social media in preparation for the Oscars when I heard, “Yo! Hollywood you need to check out this”. It was a video they found of Ruthie Craft on a rooftop in Hollywood doing a cover of a Guns N’ Roses tune.
I went through some other covers Ruthie had posted on her Instagram and was intrigued, and felt she had something, so I sent her a “DM”, which resulted in this interview forth eight hours before sheer madness breaking out on Hollywood Boulevard at the Dolby Theater. Follow Ruthie on her Facebook, and her Instagram.
Here the video which caught my eye. I tell everyone don’t get caught in the studio use the world as your stage and it is just what Ruthie did.
As far as music is concerned, I’ve already mentioned how instrumental Adele has been to the development of my vocal style. I also simply love listening to crooners like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Michael Buble. Everyone from Amy Winehouse to Jason Mraz to Stevie Ray Vaughan have inspired me. But I wouldn’t be pursuing music right now if it weren’t for the patient support of my parents, four siblings, and my loving husband. They all believe in my talent even when I don’t. I’ve auditioned for TV singing competitions 5 times now, and have been rejected from all of them. But I will never be rejected from my husband and my family. That’s an incredible feeling, and it’s what drives me forward.
I wore my sunflower dress cause I was happy, then this song came and done bummed me out.

Clement von Franckenstein’s connection with ‘Perverts & Whores’ Jennifer Aniston and Oscars Winner Julianne Moore
“Ideas and products and messages and behaviors spread like viruses do”. – Malcolm T. Gladwell author The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
I finish a meeting in Malibu and call an old friend of mine actor Clement Von Franckenstein who has just wrapped working with Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, and George Clooney in ‘Hail Ceasar’ a film directed by Ethan Coen and Joel Coen.
Clement wants to know what is going on in Toronto with Julianne Moore. So I explain that she is both nominated and a presenter at Canadian Screen Awards taking place on Sunday in Toronto. I also explain to Clement that I can not watch ‘Californication’ without thinking of him, “Did you see my episode ‘Perverts & Whores’?” he asks and informs me that it was directed by Julianne Moore’s husband Bart Freundlich (the younger husband Julianne referred at the Oscars). So that is the connection with Oscar Winner Julianne Moore what is one of Clement’s lines he delivers “Jennifer Aniston is attached”. So now added to the mix is Jennifer Aniston. This is Hollywood.
In Hollywood everything is about big. Big movie, big budget, big screens, big studios, yet the social network is tight, and small and everyone who is a player in Hollywood is somehow directly or indirectly connected and news travels fast. Clement a Eton College boy is on the inside of this circle of Hollywood,and ever since I met him on the famed cricket field pitch under the Hollywood sign Clement has been working, this alone in Hollywood is unique. Until the time he came to US, he sang in nightclubs and had a lot of performing experience before getting into acting at age 27. His first job was in the mini-series QB VII (1974) starring Ben Gazzara and Lee Remick Check out the scene of Clement in ‘Californication’ “Perverts & Whores” and his work in this show-real.
