"This kid is amazing...12 years old my ass! I know many 22 year olds who aren't half as poised, well spoken, or intelligent."



Amazing? When he IS 22, he will be broke and hanging out in the restrooms at truck stops, tapping his foot under the other guys stall.

Have him on in a separate interview, or keep it short enough so you can actually do TMZ live. Guests like Arnold Klein and Michael Lohan are relevant and interesting to current topics and while the music video was controversial it isn't in the news like Michael Jackson and Lindsey Lohan. That was a disaster. He's 12. He doesn't have opinions on Paris Hilton or Lindsey Lohan. Get over it. That was far longer than it needed to be and you completely ignored the desires of the people who actually wait at their computers to watch this every day. Don't pretend like you're going to answer our questions when you have no intention to. I thought TMZ was supposed to be for the viewers, not so you can have an excuse to debate genocide with a middle schooler.

The kid was interesting to me but on THIS day, with so much happening, it would have been better to leave him to another day. I tuned in a bit late (and had no audio/video issues, BTW, which is amazing from Mexico)and was hoping to see some of the questions of today answered. TMZ, you knew the depo was going on today and I don't think scheduling this guy today was a good idea. I have to say, the news and video from Venice was classic LA stuff (born and raised there myself). Living in Mexico now, I miss the drama of LA.

"The New, Improved Colossus



Like the brazen hussy of giant fame



Conquering legs astride from land to land



Here at our sea-washed :sunset gates - she stands up



Mighty Gal no torch just flames



Her imprisisoned rage



Her stolen name



Mother of All Exiles



Her lightening hand



Her eyes command and her air headed horror of twin towers fame



Keep Your Ancient , conquered minds and arrogance in fancy pants



she wails



no silence from her lips



Give me your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe heavily



Your wretched refuse of your teeming shore



Send these, the homeless tempest tossed to me



I open my Golden Legs to thee-



(took poetesses' license , that's how i feel like we are being turned into a giant whore against our wills, Harvey)

enough, if I wanted to listen to the ramblings of a little boy I'd talk to my own kid. With all the more "interesting" news stories this is what you waste time on?? Plus you're way past Harvey's 20 minute rule.

Why on earth are you interviewing a 12 year old child ? I think that you have gone bonkers now. Harvey is getting a bit off centered.
