DJ AM Needs To Deplane Immediately


DJ AM may be the luckiest man alive.  He and Travis Barker were the only two survivors of last year’s plane crash which killed the other four people on board.  And now, it appears he has cheated death again.

Poor Adam was booked on Continental Flight 3407 on February 13th.  That’s the plane that crashed in Buffalo and had no survivors.  Apparently, Adam had a bad feeling about flying and opted to drive at the last minute-a decision that saved his life.  Why does aviation basically hate Adam Goldstein?

I have always said that plane crash survivors are really the luckiest people.  Lucky for the obvious reason-they get to live.  But also because, statistically speaking, what are the chances of them ever being in another plane crash?  I’d like to think the odds would be drastically reduced.

Since the crash in February, AM has cancelled all scheduled gigs that would require him getting on a plane.

Bonded for Life!

Plane crash survivors DJ AM and Travis Barker say goodbye after having a late lunch at Toasted in LA yesterday.

These two much share such a close bond now. Can you imagine being the two only survivors of a plane crash? You’d be bonded with that other person forever. I’m glad that they have each other for support throughout this. They both seem like really good guys.

DJ AM and Mandy Moore Break Up…Again


Of course they broke up again.  Travis Barker and Shana Moakler need to take note.  Because even if you skid off a runway and have critical burns and almost die, it doesn’t make you any more compatible with an ex.  I don’t know why people think near death experiences are a sign from God to go recommit the same mistakes.  Like He sits up there saying “I’m giving you this second chance at life so you can fail, yet again, at the same relationship.”

I am happy to report that DJ AM is now dating some American Apparel model chick which hopefully will thwart any future reconciliation attempts with that other one.

Yes, this is Mandy Moore from seven years ago, but I can’t pass by an opportunity when I see the two most irritating women in Hollywood in the same picture.  I’m not that strong.

Back On?

We’ve heard lots of rumors recently that DJ AM and Mandy Moore have reignited their romance, and the two were spotted together this weekend, when Mandy Moore hosted at PURE and AM was the DJ. I wonder if he flew there … either way, it’s good to see he’s back on his game.

Mandy, on the other hand, still just annoys me. And I still don’t know why. Doesn’t she just look annoying? Like the kind of girl who mentions to the teacher that the clock’s running ten minutes fast, and it’s not time to let us out yet. And you just wanna smack her. I also hate her outfit and her shoes here.

Also there: Jeremy Jackson, who … uh … has seen better days.

DJ AM and Mandy Moore: Back On!

There’s nothing like a near-fatal plane wreck to remind you of what’s really important: having sex with Mandy Moore.

DJ AM has reportedly rekindled the flame with Mandy, who was by his side after the accident.

“It’s back on,” says a source close to AM. “Since the accident, it’s blossomed into something again. Mandy said, ‘I like this guy a lot and I want to see where it can go again. Life is too short to not be with someone you really care about.’”

The twosome were spotted out and about at an event in Bev Hills last week. “He was holding her hand, and they were rubbing each other’s backs,” says a spy.

Aw, I actually don’t hate this pairing. Normally I hate everything about Mandy Moore, but if she can help Adam get through this horrible time, then I’ll cheer her on.

DJ AM Gives His First Interview After the Crash

We’ve got more details on the new interview AM did with People magazine, and it looks like it’s quite the doozy.

I’ve prayed every night for the past 10 years. There’s a lot more to thank God for now. My philosophy is ‘live life to the fullest,’ [and] I was saved for a reason,” he told the magazine. “Maybe I’m going to help someone else. I don’t question it. All I know is, I’m thankful I’m still here.”

He also said that while he’s grateful to be alive, he’s wrestled with guilt, knowing that four people didn’t survive the crash.

“My emotions go back and forth,” he said. “At the first hospital, I screamed, ‘Thank you!’ Then I wondered, ‘Why did I live?’ I can’t believe I made it. Any second, it can all be gone.”

AM (born Adam Goldstein) also gave People his harrowing account of the crash itself, saying that he had just taken off his shoes and fallen asleep when he “woke up to Travis screaming and the plane engulfed in flames.”

“I remember thinking it was like ‘Miami Vice,’ where a car is on fire and you run before the gas tank explodes — ‘We gotta get out of here!’ ” he said. “Travis jerked open the door and slid on his butt down a wing that was on fire. I tried to cover my face as I jumped through a fireball. As soon as I hit the ground, I remembered ‘stop, drop and roll,’ so I started rolling.

“I saw Travis running and flailing, trying to put out fire on his body. He screamed, ‘What do I do?’ and I said, ‘Roll!’ He did, but the fire didn’t go out,” AM continued. “He tried to rip his clothes off. I finally put the flames out by smothering him with my body. Some of my burns are from that. His sock was on fire — I burned my fingers taking it off.”

Goldstein was eventually transferred to the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia, where he was “in and out of consciousness” receiving treatment on his burns. On September 26, he took a 40-hour bus ride from Georgia to California, where he entered the Grossman Burn Center at Sherman Oaks Hospital to undergo further treatment, including receiving skin grafts on his arm and neck.

“They shaved my head and took layers of skin from my scalp. To heal the wounds, I was in a hyperbaric chamber for 90 minutes twice daily for four days. It’s claustrophobic,” he told People. “One of my first nights home, I watched ‘Iron Man’ with friends. In the scene where Robert Downey Jr. comes out of the cave with a blowtorch, my whole body cringed. That night, I had a nightmare someone spilled fuel on me and was trying to light me on fire. I woke up and thought, ‘Oh my God, this is going to happen forever.’ ”

Goldstein said he’s considering seeing a therapist to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder, but he’s started to recover mentally too, thanks to events like Tuesday night’s “Welcome Home DJ AM” party at Hollywood’s Avalon club and a high-profile gig DJing for Jay-Z at the Palladium, scheduled for Wednesday night. “I realize I have 1,000 friends who’ve been there for me. I am blessed,” he said.

And though he’s on the mend both physically and spiritually, he said there’s one thing that will never be the same again: travel.

“I’m looking forward to every part but traveling. For four years, I’ve flown to Vegas almost every weekend to DJ,” he told the magazine. “I think, ‘Will I drive? Maybe.’ I think I’ll fly again commercially, but never on a small plane. It’s too scary.”

Dude, Adam, when I lived in LA, I went to Vegas all the time, and I drove every. Single. Time. Why? Because flying is scary. The drive takes like three-and-a-half hours, dude. No sweat at all.
