The Beverly Hills Hotel is no stranger to celebrity guests but on Friday something unusual is going down.

That's when KISS rockers Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will be hosting a global web chat on Ortsbo.com, an instant messaging service that can translate your IMs and other social media rants conversations into over 50 languages. So if you've ever wanted to have Gene talk dirty to you in Russian, Mandarin, Spanish or French, now's your chance. (You can sign up here.)

The event will begin at 10:30am EST (that's 7:30am Beverly Hills time) and will also include a live audience. We just hope the hotel waves their $10 internet charge for Gene and Paul.

And we're closing our Friday with this strange news report: Condoleeza Rice hooked up with rock band KISS at a Sheraton in Stockholm:

"I was thrilled," a beaming US secretary of state told reporters Friday after meeting lead singer Gene Simmons and his three band members at the waterfront Sheraton Hotel in the Swedish capital on Thursday night.

The Sheraton in question we're guessing is the main Sheraton Stockholm in the city's central business district. While the hotel's rooms look comfy, Stockholm rock city, it is not.
