6-PACK — He Died On Madonna's Birthday + Madonna's Albums: Ranked + New Minogue! + New Dolly! + Bonnie Tyler ECLIPSE Cruise + New Cher! Comments (0)

HqdefaultMy second favorite Joe Jervis post is “Ricky Loved Madonna” — and it's a truly touching short piece of work.

Each year on Madonna's birthday since 2006, Joe has posted it. Read the last sentence first: “Twenty years ago today, Ricky, aged 28, died on his birthday. I will always hope that it was his August 16th birthday. Ricky loved Madonna.”

Keep reading for this and five other music-related links, including news on Cher, Dolly, Dannii, Bonnie Tyler and more Madonna ...

The SAG Awards: 100% Against Trump & His Muslim Ban Comments (0)

Check out all the fiery speeches from the SAG Awards, in which almost none of the winners avoided taking a pointed jab at Trump's outrageous Muslim ban here.

One speech that blended the personal with the political was that by Mahershala Ali, who won for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for his mesmerizing turn in the gay-themed Moonlight.

Listen to his beautiful words on converting to Islam many years ago, and still having the respect of his Baptist mother: 

Genius and LGBTQ icon/activist Lily Tomlin —presented her Life Achievement award by Dolly Parton solo after Jane Fonda called in sick — was funny/mean toward Trump, but was also just plain charming, referencing Ruth Gordon's legendary Oscar-acceptance speech, in which she joked that it was “encouragain'” — a hoot coming from a woman past 70: 

Here's Ruth:

Here's the full list of SAG nominees and winners.

Until Death Do Us Parton! Comments (0)

It does a body good to see Miss Dolly Parton sandwiched between Mr. Joshua Sasse and his hot-piece GF, Miss Kylie Minogue.

His shirt refers to the campaign for marriage equality in Australia.

Dolly Parton's Gay Circle: WE EMBRACE IT Comments (0)

Dolly Parton is talking to Pride Source about her LGBT bona fides, including the first time she ever heard about gay people: Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 4.39.37 PM

As I started to be a teenager there were a couple of guys downtown that everybody was sayin' were queer, ya know? I know they often said that about anybody who was odd or different - "they're just queer, just strange and odd" - but the way they would talk about these two guys they would say, "Well, they're sissies, they're girls." I was a teenager then. But in my early days we did not know (what gay was). It didn't take me long to know that people were different and that was always fine with me 'cause I was different too, and I embraced and accepted them and I knew them. I knew them well. But no, in my early days I did not know. But I know a lot of them now! I have a huge gay and lesbian following and I'm proud of 'em, I love 'em and I think everybody should be themselves and be allowed to be themselves whoever they are, whatever they are. 

She told writer Chris Azzopardi that her gay circle these days is wide:

You know what, I have so many (gay) people in my companies. And later on, I did find out I have many gays and lesbians in my own family. We accept them, we embrace them. Oh, there are some in the mountains who still don't know quite what to make of it or how they should feel about it, but they're ours and they're who they are and we know they're wonderful and they're like us. We love the fact that they are who they are and we nurture that. We don't try to make them feel separate or different. We embrace it.

Dolly is currently on her Pure & Simple Tour.

Nice Pair: Katy Perry & Dolly Parton Duet Way Better Than You Thought Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 2.01.09 AM(Video still via CBS)

I was really charmed by the Katy Perry/Dolly Parton duet at the Academy of Country Music Awards, which found Katy dolled up like a country sweetheart and Dolly doing Dolly.

The ladies sang three classic Dolly tunes—“Coat of Many Colors,” “Jolene” and “Nine to Five.”

Singing A Different Tune Comments (0)

First, check out Ravens kicker Justin Tucker, who wails “Ave Maria” with surprising strength. It's almost like he has more to offer than his bulge. Regardless, he's no castrato.

Next, after the jump, it's time for Cyndi Lauper to cover Dolly Parton's “Hard Candy Christmas” ...

Good Golly, Miss Dolly! Comments (0)

Tumblr_nbcka14m2M1qcnuapo1_500

Dolly Parton is piping up to The Hollywood Reporter on “God, Botox and her gay fans” (if that's a list of her favorite things, I hope it's in no particular order).

Of her gay fans, she says:

“They know that I completely love and accept them, as I do all people. I’ve struggled enough in my life to be appreciated and understood. I think everybody should be allowed to be who they are and to love who they love. I don’t think we should be judgmental. Lord, I’ve got enough problems of my own to pass judgment on somebody else.”
