Ladies' Man

"Women cannot complain about men anymore until they start getting better taste in them." Bill Maher, in his own words. Love him or hate him, you can't help but, at the very least, muse upon his irreverent humor and fiendishly provocative social and political barbs. But speaking of "better taste," what I find infinitely more interesting than his eyebrow-raising rhetoric is Maher's taste in women. His most recent love interest (though they've now broken up) was the Video Vixen, aka SuperHead. The infamous hip-hop video girl's New York Times best seller, Confessions of a Video Vixen, tells of her getting cozy with everyone from Usher to Shaquille O'Neal to Fred Durst. Prior to SuperHead, Maher dodged a bullet when a California judge dismissed a $9 million lawsuit brought against him by his former ladylove, CoCo Johnsen. Johnsen said Maher reneged on his promise to buy her a house in Beverly Hills and hurled racial slurs at her. Pontificate on that, Bill. Forget about Bush and the war. We wanna hear about SuperHead and CoCo! Oh well, maybe it's just me. If you want to hear the other stuff check him out 8 p.m. Saturday at the Majestic Theater, 1925 Elm St. Tickets are $35 to $65.
