Notably, the fan response was more heated than the muted reaction when last year's concert by Bryan Adams — whose songs remain in inexplicably heavy rotation at local bars and cafes — was cancelled due to a problem with the permit. But authorities will no doubt be taking a wait-and-see to the upcoming performance by Lady Gaga — whom PETA supporters have asked to wear a lettuce dress — at the Indian Grand Prix after party on Sunday.

PETA Is Pissed Off At Tyler Shields' Raw Meat Photoshoot With Mischa Barton
It’s this kind of narrow-mindedness that I can’t stand. PETA needs to get it through their thick skulls that not everyone is going to convert to vegetarianism. There is nothing wrong with eating meat (properly, yes), and they can’t keep using the argument about how the animal was killed. It’s dead; you can’t bring it back to life, so get over it.
How to make your party a smash-hit
“Dinner parties come into interesting territory when you make the table a great point of interest. For example, think provincial and create a haphazard tumble of great styling with Italian breads on timber chopping boards, old decanters filled with wine. Use mismatched plates, cane and wicker, odd napkins. It all may look mismatched and contrasty at the beginning but as it takes form it will be look beautifully styled. Single colours like black or silver or single materials like glass or metal or really simple themes will allow you to create an intimate, well-styled experience with that attention to detail.”
A night to remember
Zabotto-Bentley says themes are great but you don’t want to be totally obsessed with themes like James Bond Casino Royale. “It all starts to become a bit costume party or pantomime. “So keep your themes quite general and really sharp and slick. Think 1920s but don’t do flapper hell cringe … create a speakeasy feel at home. “Turn off overhead lights and light only lamps. Hire a waiter in a tux or get a neighbour in a tux to help serve drinks. Use old-school martini glasses and serve on old silver trays. Style various areas with old-school flowers -white calla lilies and phalaenopsis orchids sitting in old silver champagne buckets. Play some old jazz like Ella Fitzgerald or some Fats Domino and Dizzy Gillespie. “Put tea lights in old martini glasses; find some old lace table runners. And there you have a modern take on the ’20s.”
