June 1, 2015 at 2:05 PM | by | ()

Conan O'Brien has recently listed the most coveted space in Burbank on airbnb.

Conan is giving one lucky fan and a friend the chance to spend the night of June 3 in the rafters of the Warner Brothers studio where he films his late night talk show. The cost? Just one killer essay explaining "why on earth you'd want to spend five minutes in our rafters, much less a whole night."

Not only will the lucky winner spend the night in the famous studio, they'll also appear on the show. "Conan will talk to you during a real show," the listing states. "So viewers will see you that night on their TVs, and millennials will see you the next day on their infernal devices."

Check out all of the rules and enter your essay here at airbnb.com. But hurry! Submissions will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. CT on June 1. Yes, today. Get writing.

'Bad Acting' Causes Academy Award Winner Julianne Moore to Lose a Tourism Gig

April 6, 2015 at 9:48 AM | by | ()

Apparently if you win an Academy Award you still have plenty to prove when it comes to impressing tourism officials, or at least that’s the case for Julianne Moore.

The actress was signed up for a little role as part of a promotion for the tourism and culture ministry over in Turkey; however, it seems like things did not go well, as she was let go from her role in part due to what is being called “bad acting.”

Lenny Kravitz Designed a $24,500 Leica Camera for Your Next World Tour

February 27, 2015 at 12:50 PM | by | ()

Because titles like “multi Grammy award winning artist,” “smolderingly cool rocker,” and “internationally renowned hot piece” just weren’t enough, Lenny Kravitz can now add “luxury camera designer” to his resume.

And if you have a rock star’s bank account, you can soon strap it on to capture your own next world tour.

In March, the high-end German camera brand Leica will debut the “Correspondent” set, a classy case containing a Kravitz-designed digital shooter with multiple lenses. And it’s pretty damn stylish.

In keeping with Leica’s somewhat signature vintage aesthetic, its enamel has been hand-worn to give the purposeful impression of well-worn globe trotting use. The unit’s trim, camera strap, and wrist strap are a glossy and sumptuous black snakeskin, the type you’d spot on Kravitz’s boots as they strut across a concert stage.

Other details include the scalloped focusing ring of a lens, a nod to 1950s design.

Elvis' Airplanes are Now Departing Graceland for...Your Backyard?

January 5, 2015 at 8:55 AM | by | ()

One of the USA's most visited private homes is losing its most famous lawn ornaments.

Say so long to the two private jets in the side yard of Elvis' Graceland; both airplanes lost the battle to stay their ground—which we reported on back in July, 2014—and are already on the auction block.

Despite Priscilla's protests, Elvis Presley Enterprises (operators of Graceland) are evicting the planes, which no longer fly but do admit visitors for an additional fee. Walking through the Lisa Marie (a Convair 880) and Hound Dog II (a Lockheed JetStar) was our favorite part of making it to Graceland in Memphis.

She was completely exhausted from all the other naps she had taken that day.

Taylor Swift just became the newest member of a very elite travel club: those who travel in private jets with their cats.

This club, unofficially initiated by Paris Hilton, counts Karl Lagerfeld as one of its most active members. Karl's cat Choupette is a very frequent flyer, sometimes even heading up to nap in the sun coming into the cockpit.

Taylor's cats, Meredith and Olivia, prefer to chill in the cabin in the arms of their owner. For her jet trip back to New York City to perform at the New Year's Eve Times Square ball drop, Taylor cradled Olivia.

The 2014 Celebrity Travelers of the Year

December 30, 2014 at 3:41 PM | by | ()

It's that time of the year again, the time when the year just plain ends. Alas, we can't just let 2014 go that easily, especially since travelers spent it both up in the air and up in arms over a crazy range of topics. Now we take a brief look back at the best and worst of 2014 with the Jaunted Travel Awards,—or as we fondly refer to them—The Jauntys.

It was a big year for George Clooney and his wife Amal. Not only did they get married, but she was named the Most Fascinating Person of the 2014 and it was announced he will receive the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award at next month's Golden Globes.

Amid all of their accomplishments and celebrations, George and Amal managed to travel around the world in style.

Paris Hilton's Instagram Praise of Emirates First Class Worth Millions

December 12, 2014 at 12:09 PM | by | ()

Taking off on my favorite @Emirates Airlines ✈️Next stop Dubai! ❤️

Una foto publicada por Paris Hilton (@parishilton) el

3.5 million people looked at photos of Emirates First Class this week and it's all thanks to Paris Hilton.

Jetting through Miami, Dubai, India, and Los Angeles to play DJ gigs and make appearances in support of her eponymous fashion and fragrance lines this week, Hilton alleviated her in-flight boredom by planning her next photo op. Five times over the course of these travels she managed to post Instagram photos of herself enjoying the comfort of the premium class, and she's quickly becoming a champion for the airline, whether official or not.

Paris has made a habit of documenting her travels via Instagram, posing in her First Class seats when she flies commercial or opting for a full vogue next to the plane when flying private.

These images are immediately shared with her legion of followers, and average over 40,000 "likes" each. Her followers may not be subscribers of Robb Report, but they are young and impressionable, and images of aspirational travel are both memorable and an easy "like."

Considering a single tweet of hers praising the airline in 2009 (to only ~200,000 followers at the time) was valued at $1.5 million five years ago, we shudder to think of a possible valuation for her recent Instagrams, of which there have been five in one week (one a video tour of the First Class cabin).

Miami's Art Basel may have been the place to be for celebs like Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, and Robert Pattinson over the weekend, but Jerry Seinfeld chose to expose his kids to some art much closer to home.

The comedian and his wife Jessica brought their kids to The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Sunday and, even though he is reportedly worth more than $800 million dollars, Jerry used public transportation to get there.
