Paul\'s Art Show in NJ
Jazzing in Jersey on 02/11/2007
Rude, obnoxious, money hungry – that is how I describe Paul Stanley . I waited in line for almost TWO hours to get into the Wentworth Gallery at Short Hills,NJ. When our turn came, they allowed 25 in at a time. We saw Paul at the back of the gallery as he was finishing a photo shoot with an art purchaser. What would ANY FAN DO? We all calmly walked towards the rear of the gallery which was sectioned off by a rope. We were all smiling, thrilled that he was RIGHT THERE . My sister and I said “Hi Paul” and he turned around and walked over to the ropes. He was literally 10 feet from us. Our smiles turned to dropped mouths at what he said.
He was straight faced and did not smile – instead, he reprimanded us with the following:
\"PEOPLE, this is NOT a guitar shop, this is NOT a music store. This is an ART gallery and I am here to sell my art. I am not here to meet any of you, I am not signing anything nor will I speak to you unless you purchase art……….” . Then he turned his back on us & walked into the back room. We didn’t even get a chance to LOOK at the art because when we entered the gallery we saw him – well – we are there BECAUSE OF HIM, we are FANS. What did he expect us to do, walk around and pretend he wasn’t in the room with us . He NEVER thanked us for taking the time to wait in line and to enjoy his art. Instead, he snapped at us and treated us like imbeciles.
We all stood around and complained about his behavior ad the Gallery Owner apologized on his Paul’s behalf. NOT GOOD ENOUGH, sorry !
Money-hungry and stuck-up – that is Paul. Stanley. No longer will I ever believe any of the things in print about how nice he is. Maybe he’s nice when you open up your wallet ..when IT BENEFITS him.
Kiss my ass Paul. You may rock but your attitude SUCKED. You are like everybody else without your fans. Wake up buddy. Instead of LIVE TO WIN… how about LIVE TO BE a JERK. You are an embarrassment to your craft and I am disappointed and now an ex-fan.
