On March 26 Bellus Magazine - which celebrates artists in music, fashion, film, beauty and pop culture - held an exclusive party at a West Hollywood's Blind Dragon to celebrate it's big launch. David Hasselhoff was there alongside his daughter Taylor AnnÂ Hasselhoff. She will be joining the cast of E!'s "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills" reality show. She also did a special performance forÂ the audience during the party.
David Hasselhoff spoke to Yahoo! about his latest gig, not taking yourself too seriously, and, really, whatever else he wanted to talk about.
I was hoping you could explain this partnership with Clorox a little bit to me. The tone of this thing is a lot of fun. You know, my name is Hasselhoff, so I took the "hassel" out of the "hoff," and I [became] The Hoff. Now I'm taking the hassle out of cleaning and itâ€™s a way to kind of interact with my fans and get in peopleâ€™s faces in a fun way. There's has a new platform called Homejoy where you can actually order a maid. Actually, you can order topless maids out here in Hollywood, but they wonâ€™t let me do that. They sent me their ideas for the commercials and theyâ€™re kind of stupidly funny and overly crazy like my character The Hoff is. They donâ€™t make any sense but theyâ€™re funny.
A lot of celebrities are doing the self-deprecating thing, but I feel like you were one of the first people who was willing to joke about yourself.When stuff comes out about you that sometimes can be devastating to your career, you either take it seriously or you slough it off and laugh at it and move forward. And I laughed at it because, 'Oh my God, theyâ€™re making this into such a big deal. Well, Iâ€™m going to make it into a big deal,' and so then it just spirals out of control. Itâ€™s like The Hoff, I didnâ€™t invent The Hoff, The Hoff was invented by some secretaries in Australia and then they made all these jokes about, you know, Hasselhoff and "Hoffalicious" and "Hoff-crazy." And so I went down to Australia and they thought I would be offended and I wore a T-shirt that said "Donâ€™t Hassle The Hoff." Bam! This brand has just taken off.Now are you really going to be cleaning people's homes? Yeah, I think thatâ€™s hysterical. Iâ€™ve done this before where I just knock on people's doors and they open the door and I go, "Hi! It's The Hoff! Iâ€™m here to help you clean. You want some help?" It's just really fun. Iâ€™ve been doing that basically all my life. I actually started when I was literally jogging in the Bahamas. A lady came out to get her mail and she said, "Oh, it's Knight Rider!" I said, "How are you? Got anything to drink in there? It's so hot here in the Bahamas." "Come on in, Knight Rider. Come on in!" Next thing I know, Iâ€™m in their house, her whole family comes home, the kids come home from school, it's just the loveliest family from the Bahamas and I ended up [going out that night] with the daughter to the blackest club ever. You know, I can get myself into any situation.Are you going to sing while you scrub? That's not a bad idea...
Yeah, give them a little jingle or something. That might make it fun. Maybe I can create the new Clorox jingle. [singing] Take the hassle out of cleaning when you pump and clean.
And then there are the royalties, so you'll be good to go for years.The royalties aren't important. The one thing in life I don't need are the royalties. The reason I do these things is because theyâ€™re fun, theyâ€™re entertaining, and they reach a wide audience. Itâ€™s funny, videos now, honest to God, I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve done any network videos. Iâ€™ve done now like 32 or 33 Internet ones and they just go wacko.
It's the future right? It's also the future of television. I have a film coming out called Killing Hasselhoff and thatâ€™ll probably go to Netflix and I have a TV series called Hoff the Record, itâ€™s all going to be on the Internet and thatâ€™s what I want because then you can take your telephone, plug it into any television set around the world, and that's it. I live off my telephone, watching television series on the airplane.
If you could spring clean anything out of your career, what would it be?Well, thereâ€™s a lot of things I'd like to spring clean out of my personal life that have to do with women, but out of my career, no. Iâ€™ve made some notoriously bad choices that have always turned into hits. My last manager, I think we fired each other over [my decision to do] Piranha 3DD. I thought it was a hysterically bad movie and I said, "I have to be in this, it's so bad." And it turned out to be this huge hit. I got so many kids from Comic-Con going, "Man, I love that movie. Iâ€™ve watched it like five times." There's an audience out there for everything.
[Hollywood] wanted me to change the name Hasselhoff, but I kept the name because I took so much crap for it in high school and now Hasselhoff has made me a fortune. Itâ€™s just amazing that I kept it and, honest to God, I kept it because I thought, No, my mom and dad gave me this name, Iâ€™m not going to change my name, and I think Iâ€™ve gained a little payback now.

Today, David Hasselhoff visited the Cambridge Union in the UK to talk to students. The press release talks about what happened during the speech he gave.
On Saturday 24th May, David Hasselhoff visited the Cambridge Union to talk tomembers about his career as a singer, actor, and entertainer. Despite the pressures ofan examination term event, he attracted a large and enthusiastic audience whocrowded in to see the Knight Rider and Baywatch star.The event kicked off with a five-minute video documenting the life of â€˜The Hoffâ€™, andhis rise to fame on the back of the international success of both Knight Rider andBaywatch, before reminding the Chamber of the great array of activities he had takenon during his decades in the entertainment industry.Mr. Hasselhoff entered the historic chamber to roaring applause from the assembledstudents. The discussion started off with an exposÃ© of the â€˜Brand of The Hoffâ€™ andhow it had developed: â€œThe Hoff father got Hoff with my mother because he thoughtshe was Hoff stuff,â€ he jested. There was, however, clearly more work that went intoâ€˜The Hoffâ€™ brand. Life is a â€œbizarre, spiritual, universal psychic path,â€ Mr. Hasselhofftold us, and to get ahead we need to â€œsee it, believe it, and live it.â€ This positivitypervaded the rest of his speech, a running theme that seemed to unite the vast array ofpursuits â€˜The Hoffâ€™ has undertaken during his lifetime.Mr. Hasselhoff told us that Knight Rider, in particular, meant a lot to his audience, asit showed people how to â€œmake a difference in your own lifeâ€. He went on to tell usthat, â€œthirty years later itâ€™s all coming true.â€ And it really did seem to be, with â€˜TheHoffâ€™ telling the audience how Google created a talking car, and in true Knight Riderfashion, offered him a test drive.With these things, however, Mr. Hasselhoff tells us itâ€™s not just luck. â€œLuck is beingprepared for opportunities when it presents itself,â€ he goes on. â€œAlthough a lot ofsolace can be found in coffee,â€ he smiles, â€œas without coffee I donâ€™t think this couldbe true.â€ This drew an audibly empathic response from students in the midst of theirexaminations terms.In terms of future projects, Mr. Hasselhoff is clearly busy. He told assembledmembers how his plans for his new movie, â€˜Killing Hasselhoffâ€™, had been confirmednot 24 hours before speaking to the Union, telling them that he wanted to finish thewhole production in 25 days. Usually, he said, â€œfilm is like watching grass grow,â€ buthe pointed out that that was what was great about Baywatch; they could move a lotfaster than that because they owned the show.Overall the event was a lively one; and audience members were engaged and, in thecase of the long-term Knight Rider fans, largely in awe. The overwhelming messagewas positivity and an ability to get out and go change things. â€œSee it, believe it, live it,â€he reiterated, exiting to yet another roar of applause.

Sweden has Skavlan and ... Hasselhoff. David Hasselhoff is no Skavlan. He is something else entirely.He is behind the world 's most successful TV series. He has been a sex symbol for over 30 years. He is one of the world's most famous people. Now it's time for him to get his own talk show. A self- Swedish talk show."So, tell me, why are you famous?" Hasselhoff's patented opening question says a lot about the program. The host does not have much relation to Sweden. Or Swedish celebrities. Whether they called Reinfeldt, Persbrandt, HÃ¤ggkvist or PÃ¤rson. But Hasselhoff takes his role as host seriously. He really wants to get to know Sweden, Swedish culture and their Swedish guests. Just this concept is the program's core. Here is an opportunity for other issues, a different form of curiosity, sincerity and humor.Hasselhoff - a Swedish talk show is, in many ways, a classic talk show with famous guests, pre-recorded elements and exclusive artist performances. But still, no classical. Everything is completely different. And everything in Hasselhoffs Swedish talk show is obviously in English.Video interviews and articles:

Celebrity royalty David Hasselhoff took time out from his hectic theatre schedule to guest edit the Nottingham Post today.Arriving by chauffeur-driven car outside City Gate East on Thursday afternoon, The Hoff came in and gave us his opinion on the paper and all things Nottingham.He said he loves Nottingham because he can walk around freely."The city is like a pot pourri," he said. "Everyone is just getting along."And Su Pollard, he told us, embodies the spirit of Nottingham herself."She is always on - always positive," he said.We told him where the big parties are on New Year's Eve, and he said he might go down to Old Market Square.Hasselhoff also sampled the local speciality - Stilton - and said he loved it.
The Hoff is working up the boos and hisses as panto villain Captain Hook at the Theatre Royal. So, â€œhow is he enjoying Nottingham?â€ he was asked at the morning conference.â€œNottingham is like a pot pourri. You can see a posh professor walking down the street next to some hippy guy with hair growing in all weird places and tattoos all over him... and everyone is getting along.â€œItâ€™s everything I thought it would be and more. People are lovely. They kind of leave me alone. In Manchester they were aggressive. I couldnâ€™t go anywhere.â€œIt helps that itâ€™s dark here all day long. That works in my favour. What time is it? Two oâ€™clock? Itâ€™s dark outside! Thatâ€™s nuts!â€So what about some special excursions?â€œHayley [Roberts, his Welsh girlfriend] and Nick [Corjon, his PA and nephew] have been out scouting the city. Iâ€™m waiting for my daughters to get here on the 21st and Iâ€™ll take them to the hot spots.â€œWeâ€™ll go the caves. I learned that Nottingham was the last place in the country that still had cave dwellers. And I think Iâ€™ve met many of them! And weâ€™re going to the Castle.â€
@DavidHasselhoff Proper nice bloke. Buzz of excitement in the @Nottingham_Post Hoffice today. #hoffwatch pic.twitter.com/aaBBG9BcbT
