The latest chapter in the wild and wacky life of Hamish Bowles? Going
undercover as an aspiring singer during an open-call audition for
Simon Cowell’s new TV competition, "X Factor” in Newark, New Jersey,
of all places. Since embarking on a series he’s dubbed "Vogue hazing,”
he’s gone one-on-one on the basketball court with the Knicks’ Amar’e
Stoudemire and to surf camp. (Sounds like he’s on a pretty solid
mission to outdo Christopher Hitchens’ self-improvement bender in
Vanity Fair four years ago that included getting a bikini wax.) "If
you're looking for solid proof that Anna Wintour has a killer sense of
humor,” reports Racked.com. "This month, Bowles’ intrepid reporting
takes him inside the auditions of Simon Cowell’s new television
singing competition. And it wasn’t even his idea—turns out Wintour
totally put him up to it.” Turns out she even gave him a pre-audition
pep talk ("You can sing. This will be easy for you.”). Taking notes
from the David Bowie rock-star style book, Bowles’ donned a fedora and
golden crystal shoes for his rousing rendition of Britney Spears’
"Oops!...I Did It Again.” Yep, it’s funny enough to go buy the October
issue of Vogue stat.
