VultureΓÇÖs interview with Bebe Buell was the best thing I read yesterday. SO good. Like vintage smut. She keeps saying back in the day, it was a different life, it was a different way. Have you seen Almost Famous? Penny Lane played by Kate Hudson? That was inspired by Bebe Buell. Bebe Buell, I just like saying the whole name, is Liv TylerΓÇÖs mother. SheΓÇÖs been everyoneΓÇÖs girlfriend at one time or another. As she says herself:

ΓÇ£I think I had lovely boyfriends. I think for your first three boyfriends to be Mick Jagger, Todd Rungren, and David Bowie, I think thatΓÇÖs okay. I canΓÇÖt imagine why anybody would have a problem with that.ΓÇ¥

And Bebe is a musician in her own right which, I know youΓÇÖre rolling your eyes about it but she had a legitimate shot at a career that ended because, as she says, she chose to give that up for Liv Tyler. And be a real mother.

ΓÇ£I would have suffered if I had not done my best to be the best mother I could be. But IΓÇÖm not a Momager. IΓÇÖm not into the Dina Lohan ΓÇö that stuff makes me seriously, Roman-style puke. IΓÇÖm not into that. What I did for Liv was a little different. I had a lot of knowledge of the industry, so I was able to steer her correctly through her future and show her how to be professional.ΓÇ¥

Part of that involved Liv staying in school, taking the subway to school, graduating from high school properly...and then going off to shoot Stealing Beauty. In other words, Bebe Buell is judging Dina Lohan.

ΓÇ£I donΓÇÖt think you should be your daughterΓÇÖs best friend. YouΓÇÖve got to be a mother. The other night I was at that Lovecat/V Magazine party during Fashion Week and [Lindsay Lohan] threw a drink on somebody and she was there with her mother. I just know that if my daughter threw a drink on somebody, sheΓÇÖd be over my knee getting an old-fashioned whooping. No matter what age. You donΓÇÖt do things like that. First of all, my daughter would never do something like that. ItΓÇÖs not in her nature. You have to have something in your nature to do something like that. I find it tragic, because Lindsay to me is extremely talented. I just wish that she had the influence of somebody like me or somebody around her ΓÇö not that I have time to wear a manager hat anymore, but IΓÇÖm just saying that I just donΓÇÖt like these moms that run these careers. How do they even understand the industry? When I was working for my daughter, you had to know when to step aside. The spotlight is not on you. ItΓÇÖs on them. These moms, they just donΓÇÖt get it. It kind of upsets me. Because I think youΓÇÖve got to be a mother first and foremost, and I personally think when youΓÇÖre in recovery and trying to get better, you shouldnΓÇÖt be going to parties. You shouldnΓÇÖt be going to parties and your mom shouldnΓÇÖt be going with you. ThatΓÇÖs my humble opinion.ΓÇ¥
