Selena & Justin at a Hookah Bar a few weeks ago

Story from Chris Farah on Tumblr/twitter:
My night I underestimated Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez fans on Twitter.
Two nights ago I smoked Hookah at a Kaffe Rouge off Ventura blvd in the valley where I met my friends Kristen and Anthony for a little dinner and company. Kristen rocked a hot one piece jump suit in a flattering and breathable fabric and I honestly was jealous of it the majority of the night. I digress. Anthony is currently sporting a recently cultivated hipster look, which I admit in the early stages was questionable but now god bless has been pulled together and I’m warmly supportive of it. We get two hookahs (there was a special), a bottle of Presecco and chat with our lovely server over mezze (Arabic for “appetizers”) occasionally singing whatever pop songs we had on the brain. By glass two and the back and forth between the Karma Sutra flavor (flavorful, then a slap in the chin with Rose) and White Peach/Melon/White Grape (my favorite, “slow like honey and heavy with dew”), I’m loose and warm. Just relaxed, you know, in the total legal way you’re allowed to smoke yourself relaxed in the USA. We all decide to make reservations to see psychics down the street, which would be the only weird thing about the night but suddenly Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez walk through the door. He looks like the idea of him. Baseball hat, red hoodie, sort of swagger walking through with Selena who’s cute and kinda hoping behind him in a short pink dress. Our waiter flips out with glee, Anthony doesn’t see him at all but Kristen does and while showing me my new favorite app Song Hopon her iPhone, gives me a side-eye in confirmation. By the way, I can’t get enough of that app, it’s everything. Anyway, I am not a huge Bieber fan, or really a Bieber fan, or can even sing one verse of one song for you at any given time. I think he’s talented, but we aren’t made to enjoy everyone. I tweet out “Smoking hookah and Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez just walked in!” to my small amount of fellow actor/comic/LA types for our mutual amusement and put my phone away to go get my Tarot cards read (give someone $20 bucks to entertain me with more me for 15 minutes). I didn’t assume people search tweets for Justin Bieber tweets and then retweet and favorite them resulting in a Top Tweet with a major trending topic and my phone crashing with notifications of more hate tweets than anyone reading this probably have ever gotten at one time (unless you are Casey Anthony or any other Bieber foe which I now have been informed would be someone named “Drake Bell” and that Mariah who pretended to have his love child and not Carey). I LOVED EVERY SECOND. People were pissed I didn’t take any pictures, wouldn’t say where exactly he was, upset I was tarnishing his pristine reputation with a “hookah scandal”,  it was hilarious and made for great fodder after my psychic told me I’d meet a tall, brown haired guy in my late 30’s and start to do philanthropic work. Anyway, I wish I could post a link to a TMZ picture of them exiting to fully validate my story, but alas there’s none. What happens amongst Arabs stays amongst Arabs I guess. Unless, I’m there.

you're suppose to empty your lungs first, like exhale, then breath in and then exhale after a couple seconds.. don't worry I got it wrong my first time too

If you haven't tried hookah, you should.. it ain't that bad..

and lol at those jealous beliebers for sending hate tweets and stuff.. See, if they had a life beyond searching for Bieber tweets on Twitter all night and actually WENT OUT for once, maybe they'd spot him and be in the exact same position...

I need to hit up a hookah bar one of these days. Drake(the rapper not Bell) is always posting pics of him smoking on his instagram and it makes me wanna try it.

I tried that once, but then I found out that's worse than a cigarette, so I stopped
stolemyheartx 3rd-Sep-2012 07:36 pm (UTC)
It is? I thought it was a better alternative to cigarettes

davidnolan 3rd-Sep-2012 07:55 pm (UTC)
lol me too i laughed when it said they were jealous of their friend's jump suit

A hookah is what you smoke shisha out of. People just get confused and think hookah is the name of what they're smoking but it's not.

i love hookah...i haven't heard it being worse than cigarettes....that's odd. But i've never researched it so who knows. This gives me hope that Selena isn't a complete angel. Woo.

Right now I badly wish I was still a member of Selena's official website fan-club. Odds are they're having a heart attack over this on there. Ha!
whatthejonas 4th-Sep-2012 02:05 am (UTC)
ooh I have an account I'll look.
whatthejonas 4th-Sep-2012 02:04 am (UTC)
1. aww Selena's first scandal.
2. I may be a minority, but I think all types of smoking, along with hookah is disgusting. ewwww. I hope this doesn't become a habit of selena's because my friend does it and I looked it up and it said it was worse than cigarettes.
3. LOL at the justin foe part.

I for sure thought they were gonna be at The Spot since she lives right there and it's where EVERYONE in the damn valley goes.
sweetchild92 5th-Sep-2012 03:11 am (UTC)
It is so ugh to see ppl think hookah smoking is "safe." Lol there's no safe way to inhale carcinogens, yo.
