OUTPUT: 06/22/03 20:58 USER: DGUADAN BEEBROAD MASTER 06-26-02 PAGE: A 2 SACBEE - STATE - 2 - 06/23/03CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK In a breach of royal security, a publicity-seek-ing comedian burst onto the stage at PrinceWilliam’s 21st birthday party and snatched a microphone from the prince as he addressed 300 guests, including William’s father and Queen Elizabeth II, news reports said Sunday. Police detained the intruder, who was identi- fied by his father as Aaron Barschak, 36, a comedian who has staged at least one other such prank and who calls himself a “comedy terror- ist.” Fred Barschak said his son probably was trying to advertise his act by gate-crashing the party at Windsor Castle on Saturday night. “He would not have been trying to harm any- one, not at all. He is actually not at all anti-royal,” Fred Barschak, 72, said outside his north London home. “He is a professional stand-up comedian who is desperate to be a serious actor.” Police said Bar- schak was unarmed. He was arrested on suspicion of burglary, which covers unautho- rized entry to pre- mises, and was re- leased Sunday with- out being charged. Media reports said the comedian stumbled onto the stage where William was making a speech to thank his father, Prince Charles, and his grandmother, the queen, for organizing the “Out of Africa” party. Barschak grabbed the microphone and began shouting before security officers dragged him away. Earlier this year, he grabbed a microphone from London Mayor Ken Livingston at an anti- war rally, saying he was a “comedy terrorist” and commenting on London traffic problems. Home Secretary David Blunkett, the head of domestic security, demanded an inquiry into security procedures at Windsor Castle. Sky Television showed Barschak – wearing a pink dress, turban, sunglasses and false beard – dancing outside the castle as guests arrived in costumes. The footage shows him shouting, “Happy birthday. Out of Africa, I’m out of this world,” before publicizing his act at the Edin- burgh Fringe Comedy Festival in August. Ready to live the family life? Ricky Martin is nearly as famous for guarding his private life as he is for his swinging hips and Latin pop tunes. But the singer apparently has put an end to the speculation about his personal relationships by confirming his on-off romance with his one-time love, Mexican TV presenter Rebecca de Alba, Hello! magazine reports. After Martin and the stunning blonde were spotted behaving amorously in Oslo earlier this month, the “Livin’ La Vida Loca” star apparently presented her – whom he reportedly dated on and off during the ’90s – to a newspaper reporter as “my girlfriend.” “We met each other 14 years ago and right now we’re very happy,” he added. Martin also told the Norwe- gian press that he’s looking forward to fatherhood. “I’m feeling ready to start a family,” he said, adding later: “It would be incredible to have a Ricky Martin Jr. – I would be a great dad and I’d take the kids everywhere.” And it seems a baby might be arriving sooner than later. “I can definitely see myself as a father,” he hinted, “and it will probably happen soon.” Martin is in Europe promoting his new Span- ish-language album, “Almas del Silencio.” Let’s talk about picture-perfect The images of actresses Kate Winslet, Jenni- fer Aniston and Julia Roberts have all been retouched for recent magazine covers. But none has suffered the fate of Shakira, the New York Post reports. The Colombian pop singer’s entire body was replaced in an ad for Reebok. “Shakira complained about how her body appeared” when she saw a rough draft, a source told the London Evening Standard. Rather than trying to slim down certain body parts, the ad agency “found it was easier to replace her with one of their female employees. Shakira doesn’t know yet that it’s not her body that appears in the ad.” Well, she does now. No birthday blues, please Singer Diana Trask is 63. Actor Ted Shackel- ford (“Knots Landing”) is 57. Actor Bryan Brown (“The Thorn Birds”) is 56. Actress Frances McDormand (“Fargo”) is 46. Rocker Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) is 41. Singer Chico DeBarge (“Free”) is 33. Actress Selma Blair (“Cruel Intentions”) is 31. R&B singer Virgo Williams (Ghostowns DJs) is 28. – By Deborah G.
