LAist has been fortunate to run into pornstar and mainstream crossover artist Sasha Grey (MySpace) already a few times this year -- at AVN's Adult Entertainment Expo and Adult Movie Awards as well as Vivid-Alt's Live In My Secrets release party.

In that time, Grey responded to recent criticism in editorials published by UCSB's Daily Nexus newspaper, the news of which even made the New York Post's Page Six column. Her musical project, ATelecine (MySpace), released its aVigillant Carpark EP, which sold out of its initial run of 300 copies. Her episode of James Gunn's PG Porn, titled "Roadside Ass-sistance", reached the one million hit milestone. And her mainstream movie The Girlfriend Experience, directed by Steven Soderbergh, debuted at the Sundance Film Festival.

So earlier this month, we checked back in with Grey two days before her 21st birthday. Thursday, March 12th was an extremely busy day, which began with a Tony Ward photoshoot -- described as one "...that I'm extremely excited about, and will divulge more when I can!" -- and concluded with two parties in West Hollywood.
