Tommy Hilfiger and Axl Rose spent Thursday night at a new club called The Plumm in New York, but Hilfiger ended up punching Axl repeatedly after he moved his girlfriend’s drink.
“I moved his girlfriend’s drink so it wouldn’t spill,” Rose told the Los Angeles radio station KROQ on Friday. “It was the most surreal thing, I think, that’s ever happened to me in my life.” According to the 44-year-old singer, Hilfiger, 55, smacked him in the arm and told him to put the drink back. “He just kept smacking me,” Rose said. Rose was there to play a surprise set for “Rent” actress Rosario Dawson for her 27th birthday party. Rose did perform, and dedicated the song “You’re Crazy” to “my good friend Tommy Hilfiger.”
Yeah, I’d say being punched repeatedly by Tommy Hilfiger qualifies as surreal. It’d be like sharing a bathroom with Brad Pitt and catching him taking peaks over the urinal, occasionally complimenting you on how large and perfectly shaped your penis is. How are you supposed to react to that? I mean, I just punched him in the face and ran out the door sceaming, but there’s probably a more civilized way to deal with that knd of thing.
