what hath brad wrought? blondies' gonna getcha


why should the boys have all the fun? with brad pitt, hayden christensen and lenny kravitz all declaring themselves future AIA members, not many female celebrities have jumped on the "but what I really want to do is design" bandwagon. until now.

Debbie Harry, always a pioneer, uses her bands induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame to pronounce her next career move:

"That's why," she says with a smile, "my future will be in architecture and urban planning."
Hey, if it means she'll staunch the flow of overdevelopment and gentrification in the lower east side, I'm all for it.

I generally abhor the phenom of celeb architecture dilettantes, but when I read this I can't help but think, Go Debbie. At least she legitimately was an awesome trend-setter in her day (even if she did appropriate black culture for white art pop, yada yada).
