No bars are held.

Fashion journalist, Minya Quirk, writes 101 Reason to Love Claudia (in no particular order): 56. Smart, smart and smart; 24. Her temper tantrums – alarming and impressive; 11. Sometimes she’s out sans purse, like a dude, just tropping with all her stuff in her pockets; 28. Her Victoria’s Secret secret. Yeah, I’ll give it up – she buys the clothes; 51. Because when we saw Lil John, she screamed, “OOOOOKAAAAYYYY” in his face and scared the shit out of him.

The entertainment factor of Bombshell: The Life and Times of Claw Money, is best exhibited in the amazing collages that Claw Money creates. Using anything and everything, Claw Money’s collages burst with creativity – thumbtacks, jewelry (uniquely her own) family photos, graffiti, sun glasses, Magnum markers, patches and several handfuls of personal materials transform a collection of personal junk into jaw dropping artworks.
