Donald-Sterling

Donald Sterling's interview with Anderson Cooper couldn't have gone much worse for Sterling, so it only makes sense that he would go for broke with Randy Rainbow...

Anderson Cooper Works His Magic Comments (0)

Magic-Johnson

In a fresh interview with Anderson Cooper, Magic Johnson talks about “uneducated” Donald Sterling, refuting his claims that black people don't help each other and noting that the man seems to be living in “the stone ages.”

That Old Black Magic: Donald Sterling Manages To Further Disgrace Himself Comments (0)

Magic-Johnson-Donald-Sterling-HIV-AIDS-Anderson-Cooper

Donald Sterling is 10 times more disgusting than previously thought, and for all of his apologists who are so hung up on his being entrapped (ha) by that shameless grifter V Stiviano—whose possession of a vagina probably makes her far more of a fall girl than she would've been otherwise—his revolting interview with Anderson Cooper should prove that.

With a palpable lack of sincerity, Sterling says:

“I'm not a racist. I made a terrible, terrible mistake. And I'm here with you today to apologize, and to ask for forgiveness for all the people that I've hurt.”

On Magic Johnson, he says the basketball legend called him and urged him not to go to the media, implying that Johnson was manipulating his response in order to buy the Clippers because AIDS:

“Here is a man who's...I don't know if I should say this...he acts so holy! I mean, he made love to every girl in every city in America and he had AIDS. And when he had those AIDS [sic], I went to my synagogue and I prayed for him. I hoped he could live and be well. I didn't criticize him...I could have. Is he an example for children? You know, because he has money, he's able to treat himself. But Magic Johnson is irrelevant in this thing. He didn't do anything harmful to anybody, and I respect him, and I admire everything that he does. I'd like to help even more if he would offer me an opportunity to help. I like to help minorities!”

Later, Sterling again brought up Johnson's HIV status:

Sterling: “What has he done, can you tell me? Biiig Magic Johnson...what has he done?”

Cooper: “Well, he has, he's a businesperson…”

Sterling: “He's got AIDS! Did he do any business, I like—did he help anybody in South L.A.”

Cooper: “I think he has HIV—he doesn't actually have full-blown AIDS.”

Sterling: “Well, what kind of a guy goes to every city, has sex with every girl, then he catches HIV...is that someone we wanna respect and tell our kids about? I think he should be ashamed of himself. I think he should go into the background. But what does he do for the black people? He doesn't do anything.”

Sterling contends that Jewish people help each other, implying that black people don't. When Cooper pushed him on that point, Sterling blew up, saying, “There's no African-American—” before catching himself and deciding not to finish the thought.

This will do wonders for Jewish/African-American relations.

V Stiviano may indeed be a gold-digging fraud, but she's also, apparently, a bit of a whistleblower.

UPDATE: Sharon Lettman-Hicks, Exec Director and CEO of the National Black Justice Coalition, reacts:

If you're ever in New York, you'd be a damn fool not to check out the wildly popular Hot Mess Drag Revue, a raucous event hosted every Friday at 42West (formerly XL). Hostessed by glamorous Milan, RuPaul's Drag Race star Bianca Del Rio and drag legend Lady Bunny, this "adults-only interactive performance" has been exploding heads for two years now, pulling laughs right out of its patrons' asses...almost literally.

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.
