Did you catch Amy Sedaris' totally awkward appearance on Martha Stewart this week? Martha went from being the funnest person cracking up at everything Amy said one second to wondering if Amy was completely mocking her the next -- and back every five seconds. It was classic television.
Amy was there to promote her new book, "I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence."
Village Voice interviewed her recently about the book. This is an answer I hope Madonna reads:
Q: On the back you've dedicated the book "from one artist to another."
A: That's a joke. I think it's funny when people refer to themselves as an artist -- I'll tell you if you're an artist or not. I think entertaining is very artistic and creative and giving. I don't think you have to be naturally artistic to do it, even if you are just catering an event. You need to be good at telling people what you want. You have to be a good Mr. Slate, a good foreman.
Check out the rest of Amy's funny Q&A with the Village Voice here.
