    Morrissey has had an eye for purring sex kittens in the past - Brigette Bardot, Marianne Faithful, Nancy Sinatra, Lady Gaga... and now is reportedly sniffing out another up-and-coming babe! - Actually/Ashley Huizenga is her name (turns out the implication is unfounded; it's only her for-sale house he's interested in! See Giselle's comment below) -

    Actually (No 1,246) - The Guardian

    A song clip's linked to the article that has a distinctive dramatic sound.

    UPDATE 5:10PM PT:

    Giselle posted a link in the comments (original post) to the LA Weekly article which is the likely source for the Morrissey reference in the Guardian article:

    Sex on Camera - LA Weekly
    Ashley Huizenga is an academic-minded singer and performance artist. She wants to get you off

      How on earth would they know if he went to her house?

      I wondered that too (regretting slightly over-salacious tone so lightly thrown on that story now!:o) but it's The Guardian, who should know to be careful. She might be a friend of a friend or a myriad other possibilities.

      I was wondering that as well, and a Google search found our answer:

      Ashley Huizenga profile in L.A. Weekly

      EDIT: I found an additional article on the L.A. Weekly Blog about Ms. Huizenga's meeting with Morrissey:

      Excellent sleuthing, Giselle. So much for The Guardian's journalistic ethics...:barf:

      Well Lindsey, it's quite possibly the most spectacular trophy home Los Feliz has to offer. Casa Domingo, built in 1927 and meticulously restored over a 5 year period. Estate boasts 36,000 plus lot w/tennis court, pool, gated motor court & guest house. 2 story cathedral entry w/ loggia & original mural on ceiling. Large living room, circular office & sunroom opening to lush yard. Large eat-in kitchen w/top of the line appliances & center island. Spectacular pool lined by palm trees, fountains & lush foliage.

      Think your Dad might consider it?

      Today a special price. Not $5.5mil! Not $5.4mil! Today, for you, the realtors are giving it away at $5.399mil. It's a steal! Do you know how much a mural like that alone would set you back?

      Well there are other people interested and so you should try to put an offer in today. You don't want to lose this opportunity. Homes like this only come once in a lifetime.

      I think they may be willing to negotiate a settlement date if that is a concern.

      4915 Los Feliz Blvd. Interested in a viewing?


      I think it is ghastly.

      Re: 'Actually' catches Morrissey's Attention: Guardian

      Yeah right, that'd be hilarious. They'd take one look at my beat-up car when I pulled into the driveway and say "She's here to steal the harp in the foyer, don't let her in." :D

      It's not ghastly exactly. It has potential to be de-Rococo'd. Smash the crest window for starters. Paint over the murals and faux marble paint treatment. Gut all the furniture. The light is nice. The pool looked lovely. The key is the neighborhood. Parts of Los Feliz can turn ghetto in seconds and sometimes that's cool. I'd rather live next to gangbangers than snobs.

      You would paint over the original 1927 mural? Haha, yeah, you would be there to steal the harp.... ;)
