On Friday, I met Toure. He is a one-named writer and pop culture commentator who also writes novels. He is a cool dude with a mop of curly hair. He was the featured speaker at a cocktail hour I attended in Philadelphia for Media Bistro http://www.mediabistro.com
Toure writes for Rolling Stone magazine and his interview with Eminem is on the cover this month. http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/_/id/6593164 He is also a commentator on CNN.
He and I chatted after his reading about Britney Spears and Ashlee Simpson. This was while he ate all my fries. We agreed that it would be better to be stuck in an elevator with Britney because Ashlee clearly does not do well under pressure.
Toure has his own website. www.toure.com
