It was not particularly surprising to find Liza Minnelli at last night's amfAR Honoring With Pride benefit. It was entirely surprising, however, when Liza broke into a rap on her way into the Rainbow Room. "There's always a man that you love," Liza quasi-rapped for us. "There's always a man that you didn't love. There's always a man that you love to love, and a man that you love too much." She's working on a new album inspired by her godmother, Kay Thompson, and the rap will be on it. "She was the first rapper," Liza told us, proudly, of Thompson. Um, okay. If you say so. —Brett Amelkin

CORRECTION, June 7: Minnelli is work on an album of songs associated with Thompson. She is not working on an album with Thompson, who died in 1998, as that item initially stated.
