Is Ariana Grande A Gay Icon? Comments (0)

Three days ago, Billboard published a piece arguing, with eight sensible points to support the claim, 6a0120a90ac194970b01b8d0c62101970c that Ariana Grande is the gay icon of her generation.

Casting aside arguments about what constitutes her generation (like, is Lady Gaga really of a previous generation?), and whether there is only one per generation, do you think this is accurate?

I have nothing bad to say about her, and she is definitely pro-gay, but I don't think of Ariana specifically in these terms. I'm not sure if there IS a gay icon anymore, so much as there are icons who gays love (of which Ariana is surely one).

Like, Judy, Donna, Madonna, these are people who were and are adored by (many, not all) gay people for their talents but also for their specifically gay appeal. I'm not sure many if any new stars these days have that — maybe the latest I can think of would be Gaga, who has spoken directly and specifically to and about gay people.

Am I wrong?

Ariana Grande: I'LL BE RETURNING TO THE INCREDIBLY BRAVE CITY OF MANCHESTER Comments (0)

I worked with Ariana Grande (and met her brother Frankie) back in the day. I always liked her. I have a few friends who weren't fond of her professionally, and there are music fans who seem to view everything in life via a diva wars prism, but I must say I think whatever your opinion of Ariana as an artist, she has handled the tragedy of the Manchester bombing with heart and maturity.

Now, she is promising to return to Manchester to show terrorists that they will never win — and that is laudable.

More power to her.

WIDGETInstagram: Hot guys galore right here! Follows & likes appreciated.

WIDGETJoe.My.God.: New report details the ways in which gay men are being beaten and tortured in Chechnya. Where is Trump's bestie Putin in all of this? Nowhere.

WIDGETDaily Kos: Crooked Jared Kushner is a subject of the Russia probe, meaning investigators have now reached Trump's innermost circle — and his family.

WIDGETThink Progress: Republican Greg Gianforte won the special election in Montana in spite of an election-eve assault, but only by 7 points, a 13-point swing away from the GOP. See ya in '18!

WIDGETKenneth in the (212): Manchester bomber's sis claims he was “kind and loving,” and acted against the unfairness he witnessed being perpetrated against Muslims. Uh, your brother blew up kids.

WIDGETHuff Post: Seth Rich was NOT murdered by the DNC. Even Fox News now knows that. Finally, its Sean Hannity is giving up that ghost.

WIDGETStr8UpGayPorn (Work Unfriendly): Men.com thought it was a good idea to show a guy impaled on a didgeridoo.

WIDGETGay Star News: On the other hand, Men.com was right in thinking a Pirates porn parody would be a good idea.

WIDGETDListed: If you lie about your age, you can sue the media for pointing it out? Bizarre, Rebel Wilson.

WIDGETPink News: Taiwan is the first Asian nation to rule in favor of gay marriage!

WIDGETBuzzFeed: Martyn Hett, the gay man confirmed dead after the Manchester blast, once used social media to thrill his depressed mother. So touching.

UPDATE: Martyn Hett has been confirmed as among the 22 people killed in the suicide bombing outside the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester:

**********

Martyn Hett, a publicist who was at the Ariana Grande concert after which 22 people were killed by a suicide bomber, is still — as of this writing — missing.

Twenty-four hours later, he hasn't checked in, his phone is turned off and he is due, shortly, to board his flight for a dream vacation in the U.S that he had planned for a long time.

His family must be bracing for the worst.

A friend sent this heartbreaking video showing Martyn and his boyfriend Russell — who had once been on reality TV in the UK —camping it up as kids ...
