Peter Davis: Gossip, scandal and a tasty Yankee burger…


Two scoop ice cream sundaes.

SCV: Meaning?

PD: I went over to Patrick McMullan one evening and said- you need to start to take pictures of her.

SCV: Is that so? And here I thought Patrick had been solely responsible for bringing this girl to light…

PD: I think with what I am envisioning as an editor, it’s not about making people famous, but rather giving them exposure. To give attention to their journey and to help place them with other cultural entities that may be or ought to be interested.

SCV: What are your thoughts with the recent debacle with respect to John Galliano?

PD: It’s a shame. I heard through the grapevine that Dior had been keeping a dossier on him for a while. I really don’t know how he’s supposed to come back after this. He’s really tainted his aura and at the end of the day, he’s not the only talented designer on the block.

SCV: Thoughts on Lindsay Lohan?

PD: Just utterly misguided. I think she needs to fire her parents.

SCV: I think she’s tried but to no avail…

A rueful laughter is heard when to our delight the house specialty dessert is offered to us. We agree to settle on ice cream sundaes- two scoops for each person (Peter had the chocolate caramel which I ended up eating half of and I on the other hand also had the tre delicious Raspberry-Lychee which if I can toot DBGB’s horn for a moment was divine- with exotic fruit salsa, meringue batons, raspberry coulis and lemongrass whipped cream- thinking about it of course is making me cringe with envy).

SCV: What of your pursuits with respect to gay activist roles?

PD: Well I was pleased to see the overturning of proposition 8 of gay rights in California, but you had to fight hard for it. I do wish there were more celebrities out there fighting for these rights- after all it’s one thing to say it and another thing to rally for it. But bless Drew Barrymore- she was out at all the marches.

SCV: The future of journalism?

PD: Ironically it comes down to the journalist getting as much exposure as the subject matter they portend to. Building a following, a good repertoire of work, editorials and building alliances is very important. I also think eventually everything will go digital, which means if you are going to have a hard copy- you have to give the reader a reason to hold on to it for more than 5 minutes- to have them treasure it and be part of their collective experience and sensory memory recall.

At this juncture I notice that my raspberry lychee is gone and begin scooping out of Peter’s almost absent mindedly, but on some level he hasn’t noticed- his mind surfing wave after wave of thought, gesture, ennui and digesting spectrum’s of color filtering the late afternoon, filtering the rising star of Mr Peter Davis.


The top ten hottest guys of NYC: 2010.

Peter Davis: ‘Better to be mugged than to be murdered.’

The top ten socialite whores of NYC.

You’re so vain- you probably think this blog is about you…



  1. @Jakob, surely you had to realize, assuming you read more than the first few sentences of this article, that its author isn’t from Brooklyn (though me may currently live there). Have a look at paragraph 3, where he mentions quite clearly that he’s Australian. So, it would stand reason, his writing bears that inflection.

    Just because someone chooses to break from the standardized gossip blog form norm of ‘Short. Choppy. Sentences.’ doesn’t mean, ipso facto, that they’re pretentious.

    But besides that, even if you disagree with the author’s writing style, we can both be assured that you’ll remember it. Which, I’d submit to your holier-than-thou judgment, is kind of the point of it.

    @Chris London, while I agree that this piece certainly portrays Peter in a very good light, I also don’t necessarily see what’s wrong with that. Surely we’re not to believe that we’re always obliged to write borderline insulting articles about subjects we’re profiling, simply because we belong to that nefarious breed of writer known only as the ‘gossip blogger.’

    As a blogger myself, I should like to think that portraying a subject positively remains well within my editorial discretion — without my article’s journalistic validity and its conclusions being attacked with a circumstantial ad hominem.

  2. Im also 100% in Love with living in BK.
    HIpster pride!!

    Thanks for reading the article everyone!

  3. Unfortunately For Jakob I have got nothing but Love From Peter regarding my photos. He told me personally he loved them and appreciated how good he looked in them.

    As for being Fired… hahaha

  4. Johnny- according to Jakob you are now officially fired darling.- The Editor…

    ps- you better not be from Brooklyn!- Our reputation depends on it…

  5. as the above poster said, your writing reeks of feces. honestly, truly, terrible.

    it’s pretentious and vapid.

    you are from brooklyn you ghastly man, have you no pride? kill that pretension and exaggerated, poncy, wordplay and maybe just maybe you could write for some teen publication or something.

  6. Unbelievable is a jealous boy that is in need of drastic attention!!!!! Great article and Peter is fabulous!

  7. To the “Unbelievable” poster (i.e., douche) above, you need to read more or maybe not actually, I could point you to some fashion and celebrity worship blogs which are among the most poorly written crap that I have seen outside a bathroom at a gas station on I-95. And I am talking ones so bad and odorous that not even George Michael would cruise them if they were filled with 22 year old buff well endowed male porno stars. I am telling you. For example, go read http://www.micahjesse.com but not without a barf bag or toilet paper.

    The foregoing being said, while i would happily share a burger with either Peter Davis or Christopher Koulouris, I was left with the rather perplexing thought after reading this piece of social journalism whether when you give another stylish social journalist what amounts to head what is proper etiquette? Do you do it standing up, kneeling or seated?

    And if you are a blog publisher trolling about the city scape at odd hours, writing at even stranger hours, do you do take a break from your hectic schedule, get a haircut, shave and otherwise clean up, dress nicely for Mr. Davis?

    Do you put on lipstick like Malik So Freak. After all Peter is a good looking, well styled dude about town so I am sure before you dropped, metaphorically speaking, I hope that you shaved and had your Sunday best on.

  8. yo unbelievable. what are u 9yr old? sounds like some childhood best friend envy to me.
    get a life,

  9. You are without a doubt, one of the worst writers on the internet today. I can’t believe Peter even let you “interview” him.
