Cat Power Opens Up About Her Split With Giovanni Ribisi
If it was 1998, I’d tell you this is a post with three of my favorite famous bitches, but Mr. Ribisi decided to stop making good movies years ago so we’ll have to settle for a post with just two of my favorites. We all know Cat Power for being a super-talented singer/songwriter and of course Agyness Deyn who knows how to pose pretty for pictures. Besides, she’s the closest thing we have to a 1990s Kate Moss.
Anyway, the fact that Giovanni no longer makes good films isn’t really enough to make me stop liking him (I still like Robert De Niro, after all). It’s really because he held onto Cat Power’s heart for three years and then stomped all over it when he decided to walk Agyness down the aisle just two months after he dumped Ms. Power. Yes, it’s true. His dick wasn’t even dry yet.
Now, Cat did say the break up wasn’t really a surprise, but she’s still deeply hurt. She told the British magazine ‘The Stool Pigeon’, “I entered a long relationship which I really wanted to be successful. You know that thing we’re all raised to want: a beautiful life with children—that family thing that is tangible?”
“I was trying to grow my personal life in a way I never did before. So now that relationship is over and it’s come full circle, which I don’t want to get too deep into because it hurts me very much. There’s great loss personally in my life right now, but there’s also this gift in that I’m lucky I finished this album,” she said.
“It was down to the wire and (I was) really suffering, in the end. It hurts.”
She then tells the mag that just three days after the break-up, she got on a plane to France to finish “the shit.” I like that. It’s kind of like a check-mate to Giovanni. Cat’s inevitably created another brilliant record so Giovanni’s gonna have to step up his game in the movies department. Note to Mr. Ribisi: more ‘Lost In Translation’ and less ‘The Rum Diary’.
I feel bad for Cat (aka Chan Marshall). I know she’ll pull through, but it still sucks. And to add insult to injury, Giovanni either has a cold-hearted snake for a sister, or one who’s clueless as fuck.
She announced the wedding to the world by tweeting, “CAT’S OUT OF THE BAG!!! Congrats to my sis… and mi (sic) new bro inlaw Giovanni.”
