Gerard Butler: Front Row at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show!

Gerard Butler gets one of the best seats in the house at the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Wednesday (November 10) at NYC’s Lexington Avenue Armory.

The 40-year-old Scottish stud chatted with actress Malin Ackerman and Kings of Leon’s Jared and Caleb Followill before the show started.

Caleb came out to support his fiancee, VS model Lily Aldridge who walked the runway for the first time in wings. Last year was her debut walk.

Also pictured in the front row: Adrian Grenier and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael, and James Valentine.

FYI: Jared and Caleb both wore Burberry.

Curves Ahead: Katy Perry, Adriana Lima & Co. Heat Up the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show


It was bare skin, hot rockers and energy galore at tonight's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in New York City.

Tongues were wagging as the models strutted a gold glitter runway in everything from jungle-themed underwear to skimpy, barely there sportswear.

In the front row for the lingerie extravaganza? Maxwell, Russell Simmons, Debbie Harry, Malin Akerman, Adam Levine, Vin Diesel and Jared Followill.

See just how rowdy things got during the event...

MORE: Who was sorely missed at this year's show?

Kicking off the runway ruckus was an announcement that all cell phones and cameras could not be used. "Why would you be looking at them anyway during this?" asked the announcer.

Apparently this did not apply to Simmons, who texted throughout the entire show, with brief pauses to look up and snap pictures of the babes working the catwalk, which featured Angels Adriana Lima, Chanel Iman and Karolina Kurkova.

A performance by Katy Perry, whose body looked as slammin' as the models (for real) had the audience on their feet.

Akon was up next, and he sang as the girls strutted past and flirted with him. But he had one very unusual fan that was more vocal than anyone—a sunglass clad Diesel, who stood up and manically fist-pumped (Jersey Shore-style) throughout the number and screamed "Aaaaaakonnnnn!" over and over.

Apparently the two are friends, with Akon showing Diesel some love postshow backstage. The two hugged it out and laughed while Diesel once again screamed his name.

When we asked what was up with the crazy dancing, Diesel told us he was "just showing love."

"The wonderful thing about being in my position is that you can shamelessly show love, Give it up for everybody else," he said. "You don't have to be cool."

Obviously not.

His only competition in the attention-grabbing department (besides the girls on display) was Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, who screamed at the top of his lungs and stood up to clap and whistle every time his smokin'-hot blond Russian model gal-pal Anne Vyalitsyna strutted her booty past him. (It was adorable though.)

And it clearly worked—she blew him a kiss form the runway more than once.

Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill showed up to support his brunette bombshell fiancée Lily Aldridge, possibly the hottest babe of the bunch, if that's even possible.

When we asked him if his gal rocks the Angel looks in the bedroom, he smiled and told us, "Uh, yeah." His favorite look? "The country one," he told us. We'd have guessed that.

Outside, things got a bit wild before the show, with bomb-sniffing dogs checking out the photogs' bags and the backstage area before the show, and people near the entrance offering to pay cash to people on line for tickets to get in.

The afterparty at Lavo drew Gerard Butler, Lukas Haas, Maxwell, a lovable Followill and Aldridge, who cuddled in a corner together, and models by the dozen.

The show airs as a special on CBS Nov. 20 at 10 p.m.

Gerard Butler groped poor Malin Ackerman at the Victoria’s Secret show

DAMN IT. I can’t even threaten to get out my slut-shank, because from the looks of it, Malin Ackerman is really not interested in Gerard Butler, and he’s really trying to tell her something very important (about his dong). Malin is all “We should be looking for Kaiser, I thought I saw your future wife over there!” And Gerard is all “Hungry. HUNGRY for blonde.” Ugh. I thought blondes weren’t even his type! He usually goes for dark, mysterious and lithe, not blonde and bubbly. I guess vadge is vadge. For God’s sake, he’s got his hands all over her! This bastard.

But that’s not even the worst part - he was hitting on yet another blonde too! What. Is. Wrong. With. Him. I am RIGHT HERE. Look at this bitch - at first I thought it was Gisele, but it’s not. She wishes she was Gisele.

Gerry and I have weathered these storms before. I thought his weird maybe-dalliance with Jennifer Aniston was going to end it for me, but he came back after that and started working with Ralph Fiennes, and I found a way to love him again. But there’s only so many randoms and trolling for strange I can take. You know what’s really gross? All of these pervert single men who go to Victoria’s Secret shows and then stand there with sh-teating grins just because they get to watch supermodels traipse around in their underwear for an hour. YOU SUCK GERRY. No, you don’t. I still love you, but you need to get it together and just come and find me.

Vin was there? . His girlfriend/baby mama must have been in the show. She did have a contract. I actually like the VS show. The underwear is fun and glamorous to look at (even though I can't fit into any of them--YET). And its fun to listen to the entertainment and watch the celebs in the audience.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show:
The Afterparty
by Karyn Monget

Following the Victoria’s Secret 2010 Fashion Show, which featured Grammy-nominated Katy Perry and Akon, more than 500 guests partied at Manhattan nightclub Lavo.

An all-star cast hammed it up on the pink carpet, including Natasha Bedingfield, Adrian Brody, Alan Cumming, Russell Simmons, Malin Akerman, Caleb and Jared Followill from Kings of Leon, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Estelle, Adam Levine, James Valentine and Mickey Madden of Maroon 5, Henrik Lundqvist, Debbie Harry, Thalia and Tommy Mottola, Zac Posen, Tyson Beckford, Maxwell, Vin Diesel, Daniel Boulud, Alexander Wang, Billy Burke, Oh Land and John Varvatos. However, Gerard Butler didn’t like the fanfare and entered the party through the back door.

Guests sipped on VS-inspired cocktails including the Stoli Wild Cherri Bombshell, Stoli Miraculous Martini and Stoli Vanil Secret.

The Underbelly of Victoria Secrets after party

David Shapiro takes us on a wild ride through Lavo. Here are his observations and interactions with Paris Hilton, Katy Perry, Michael Bay, and Gerard Butler as sent to us from his BlackBerry:

He describes entering the party:

"i am in the basement of this combination italian restaurant/club in midtown called Lavo that is hosting a Victoria's Secret fashion show after party. a few minutes ago i was upstairs at the bar and like twenty feet away from me there was a red carpet area where models walked in and then they got their pictures taken and they were giggling and chatting with each other in a Nordic language that i didn't recognize exactly.and they sometimes made pouty faces or flipped their hair and turned around and looked back over their shoulders at the cameras. they looked like they were having fun like people in Newport ads, you know, like if you had to describe what they were doing you would say "having fun."

And then his experience in getting his first drink...

i think i was also having fun but not as much fun. and then after a few minutes of standing at the bar the bartender walked over to me and asked me what i wanted and i pointed to the Pilsner Urquell tap and she yelled "BEER?!" because it was really loud in there and also maybe she had been serving a lot of cocktails and not that many beers so it was an unusual request, and i yelled back, "YES, PLEASE!" and then she filled the glass a little less than halfway and set it on the counter and yelled, "HOW ABOUT HALF A BEER?" and i yelled back "OKAY" and i didn't understand why she only gave me half a beer, but, like, there i was surrounded by supermodels and supermen of impossible height and impeccable breeding, and i was wearing my nylon windbreaker with some stains on it and ordering a beer, so i figured it would be weird to take issue with it, and also this was an open bar...

..and then spotting Paris Hilton:

...and then paris hilton walked in as i was sipping my beer so i followed her to the downstairs club area so that's where i am at now.

paris hilton had that blank but satisfied look on her face when she walked in and now in this downstairs area i can't find her. i also noticed that she had one of those ponytails where the thing holding the ponytail together is actually some strands of hair, instead of like a hair thingy, i thought that was cool.

He takes us through the club and his Vin Diesel spotting:

anyway in this club there is a slightly sunken dance floor, and then an area that surrounds the dance floor with a bar, and then surrounding that is a raised area that is like the VIP area, and there are men with headsets guarding it. i walk over to the raised area because Vin Diesel is there, pumping his fist to "We Are Your Friends," and i want to ask him some questions. i watch him pump his fist for like 30 seconds. he is so happy and he is smiling, and then i walk over to him from the bar, and on my way over i generate some questions to ask Vin Diesel, but then one of the dudes with headsets blocks me and says that i can't go up into the VIP area."

Then he gets a lesson in VIP, spots Katy Perry:

it is very crowded near the VIP area. i am being smushed by people who are dancing and walking past me, and i watch Vin Diesel fistpump for a little longer and sip this cocktail that i got (learned my lesson after that beer), and then i look over and see Katy Perry in a corner in the VIP area. she is swaying back and forth a little and she looks awkward like a girl at a 7th grade dance. she keeps her eyes down and isn't talking to people and sometimes claps along to the beat halfheartedly. i wish Vin Diesel would go over to her and cheer her up.

then the DJ plays "California Girls" by Katy Perry!!"


And then he hears about an Alan Cumming/Gerard Butler incident:

people around her sneak glances over at her to see what she is doing, like whether she is singing along or if she is dancing extra hard, but she keeps doing exactly what she is doing. this is probably not the first time this has happened to her, so she probably has some established protocol for it. eventually the song ends, and she looks sort of relieved and i go find my friend who is reporting on this event for another publication.

he tells me that he just watched Alan Cumming grab Gerard Butler's ass and he says "you should write about that because i can't and it's a good detail."


Then he gets Paris to talk about her music, kind of:

we hang around the bar for a while and then spot Paris Hilton and her sister and they are pushing through a crowd. i put down my drink and walk over towards Paris Hilton and get smushed by some people dancing and then i get to her and say "hi my name is david and i write a blog about music, can i ask you like three questions please?" and she says "okay," and still has her trademark look on her face, like i think i could have said "hi my name is david and i write a blog about people i hate, can i ask you some questions" and she would still have looked the same.

i say "when will you put out your next record?"

she says "next year."

i go "what will it sound like?"

she says "a lot of fun."

i say "what was the last thing you listened to, like on your ipod?"

she goes "katy perry"

i think about asking her how Katy Perry influences her as a musician but, like, this interview isn't really going anywhere, so i thank her and walk back to my friend, and he goes "how'd it go with Paris?" and i say "honestly mediocre, i was afraid if i asked her more detailed questions about her music she might think i was mocking her."

Later he discovers Michael Bay:

then my friend goes "holy shit that's michael bay!" and he points to a tall thin man with blond hair who is walking past us, and i tap him on the shoulder and don't even bother to introduce myself and just spit out the first question that comes to me which is "AEROSMITH OR BON JOVI?!"

he looks dumbfounded for a second and then looks like he is thinking it over and then says "aerosmith!"

i go "good time rock n roll or gritty rock n roll?" which i think is the worst interview question i have ever asked or ever heard of being asked, and michael bay goes "what are you doing? what is this?" and i must look really nervous and i say "ahh! an interview i think?! i'm sorry, i didn't know you were coming, i would have prepared better questions!!" and he smiles at me, i guess he can see i am nervous, and he says "okay, well then what's your next question," and i say "okay, hold on let me think of one" and i stand there trying to think of a question to ask michael bay, and then after a few seconds i say "i can't think of one!!! what do i do?!" and he shrugs and then says "okay, so yeah, Aerosmith, i'm friends with them." michael bay is really trying to help me out here. i am probably blushing, but is being really nice.

Then Paris Hilton loses her wallet:

then i apologize for not having anything prepared, and he says "it's okay!" and i thank him and walk back over towards the VIP area because that's where my friend is standing and on the way there, i walk past Paris Hilton just as she drops her billfold and her little makeup mirror. her money scatters around her feet and she looks me in the eye, same blank expression, and then bends down and picks up her money. i think about bending down to help her collect it but people might think i was trying to steal Paris Hilton's cash. it is mostly $20s and $50s. i don't see any singles, and she puts the makeup thing back into her bag with all her money and walks past me.

He has an incident in the bathroom with Michael Bay:

later in the bathroom i run into michael bay again. we both finish using the bathroom at the same time and wash our hands at the same time. when we are done washing our hands, the bathroom attendant hands him a big napkin for him to dry his hands with and he takes some money out of his pocket and drops it in the bathroom attendant's tip jar after he is done.

as we walk out of the bathroom he smiles at me and i say "how much did you tip the bathroom attendant?" and he looks almost embarrassed and says "five dollars... times are hard in america right now" and i am pretty positive that it was either $3 or $4 but maybe there was a bill that i didn't see, so i will give him the benefit of the doubt here, but honestly i am pretty sure it was $4 maximum, and i give him a sympathetic look, because he looks a little embarrassed still, and i say "don't worry about it, i didn't tip anything!" which was true. i didn't like take a mint or anything. i guess i feel like bathroom attendants at clubs are like the guys who try to wash your car's windshield when you are stopped at a light.

after i say, "i didn't tip anything," michael bay says "well that's okay, you're a writer!" and i nod, and he thinks for a second and says "we need more writers right now," and i nod again and he continues "more writers and less internet people! there's no accountability on the internet. people can just write whatever they want."

and then he says some other stuff that i didn't write down, because i was thinking about the irony of him lambasting people who write on the internet to me, and he is really friendly the whole time and not an asshole and didn't try to get away from me and would have answered any question i had, and i don't mean to make him look like an asshole if you are reading this and thinking "man michael bay is as big an asshole as i thought he was going to be, pretty much definitely lying about how much money he left in the bathroom attendant's tip jar" because he was really not an asshole, and then as we were walking away i asked "did you get a mint?" and he says, "yeah i got a very strong mint!" and smiles.

He watches Gerard Butler court women and talks rap with the actor:

a few minutes later i am standing by the bar, and Gerard Butler is standing by the bar and spitting game to this middle-aged but still pretty good looking woman, and i wait until he is done and it seems like their conversation is over and i go up to him and say

“hi i write a blog about music can i ask you a question?” and he says, “yes.”

i say “who is your favorite rapper?”

he goes “why do you ask me about rap?” in his thick accent, sort of like if arnold schwarzenegger was saying those words (or Rainier Wolfcastle from the simpsons).

and i say “because rappers rap about you!!” and i smile.

he says “what do they say?”

i go “well Lil Wayne said, ‘I GO HARD LIKE THE BOY FROM 300!!’”

gerard butler looks agitated and then says “well then he’s my favorite rapper” and he walks out onto the dance floor.


Then as the night wears on, he knows it's time to go home:

an hour later i am sitting on a couch near the dance floor and a girl who is probably a few years older than me who looks really drunk falls over onto the bench that i am sitting on, a few feet away from me. she slides over to me on the couch until she is sitting next to me, and her leg is touching my leg and then says "do you like Stoli?"

i say "ummmmm yeah sure, it's okay?" and i am not sure why she is asking me that.

so i say "why do you ask?"

and she says "because i work for them."

and i say "oh, okay, yeah Stoli is pretty good. are you like doing market research or something?"

and she smiles and ignores the question and whispers "i'll see you soon" into my ear and then kisses me on the cheek and stumbles over to another couch and does what i suspect is exactly the same thing to someone else. in the distance, i can see gerard butler dancing. my friend leans over to me and says "you wanna bounce?" and i say "okay" and we leave.

Strange. Funny, but strange. I'm almost convinced he's scared of strangers. Is there a phobia for that? Laughing

Thanks, Dallas.

So he doesn't really listen to rap, I'm getting.

Cross that off the music list.

I wouldn't even know how to answer that question. Do people assume that because you are 'in' you actually know what's going on?

Maybe I'd say I liked the Beastie Boys but it would be their old school stuff.

He should have said Ludacris, he was in "Gamer" with him. And Ludacris is a LOT better than Lil Wayne.

Is Ludacris from Atlanta? Because he seems to promote Atlanta a lot. I follow him on Twitter. I met him at ComicCon a few years back. He was a great guy, taking time out for his fans to take pictures despite the LONG LONG line that formed at the booth. He didn't have to do that, it was extra and not expected....not to mention we didn't have to pay anything for it, either (most other actors there were charging for pictures).

In fact, I got a lot of freebies from that Gamer booth. It was cool. Neveldine and Taylor were also there, signing stuff for free.
