LIP SERVICE: What’s that giant sucking sound coming from Los Angeles’ KROQ radio? It’s none other than maritally challenged supermodel Cindy Crawford loudly slobbering on a six-inch candy cane for a full 55 seconds on the station’s Christmas parody album, No Toys for O.J., benefiting ill children. ”She does some soft moaning — and there’s a spine-tingling crunch at the end,” says Mark Davis of KROQ. (In addition to Crawford’s tongue work, the locally sold album features the Smashing Pumpkins‘ rendition of ”Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and Geraldo Rivera singing about transvestites in a parody of ”The Christmas Song.”) But the giddy fun doesn’t end there: KROQ jocks Kevin Ryder and Gene ”Bean” Baxter plan an on-air auction of chunks of cane once crunched by Cindy’s flawless teeth. Hygiene, says Davis, will not be a problem. ”The cane was in a protective wrapper. We encourage safe sucks.”
