Country Star Ty Herndon Comes Out Comments (0)

Ty-herndon49590

Ty Herndon, 52, a bona fide country star whose “It Must Be Love” was a #1 country hit and Top 40 pop song in 1998, has come out as an “out, proud and happy gay man.”

Herndon came out personally beginning at age 20 and has been married twice, to women he says “absolutely” knew the truth.

Welcome to the family, pardner.

 
One Day You're In, The Next Day You're Out Comments (0)

When you're a blogger, you take the good (free tickets, great opportunities to meet fascinating people, the ability to express your opinion to a wide audience every day, positive reinforcement from supportive readers) with the bad (scorched-earth comments from anonymous anti-fans, the occasional rejection of an interview request, some people assuming you're a public service and that you have to publish anythnig they want).

One thing I really never get over, though, is the odd push-pull from some quarters—they want you, they don't want you...it changes day to day.

Case in point: I would routinely get news tips from a gay magazine on a weekly basis. They'd encourage me to post their stuff, which I often did since I run a personal blog with a gay slant and they're a classy gay magazine that has great content. Why wouldn't I?

But then I wouldn't get invited to their annual party in NYC, which each year I would point out and then would be told they'd correct it the following year.

BLUE, Period: An Interview With Ricky Rebel Comments (0)
  Ricky-Rebel Rickey-Rebel-NA Ricky Rebel Blue Album, montage, by Graphics Metropolis, web Ricky-Rebel-surprise Ricky-Rebel-Blue

Ricky Rebel is described as a sort of Adam Lambert/Lady Gaga hybrid, but in spite of his young age, he's been in the industry longer than both of them. I first encountered Ricky when he was in the boy No_authority_shirtless_group_in_underwear1band No Authority (pictured in underwear), a group signed to Madonna's Maverick (RIP!) and mentored by Michael Jackson.

I would've done anything for NA (and gave them crazy amounts of coverage) if only because their manager had once been in an episode of The Golden Girls, but I also really liked the boys themselves.

Ricky was a stand-out in the teen pop scene, a true showman, so it was not surprising to me 10 years later when he re-emerged as a solo artist with a major dance hit (“Geisha Dance”) and a thoughtfully crafted, musically sound point of view.

Now, Ricky is releasing The Blue Album, filled with adventurous dance music that isn't a guilty pleasure but an unqualified pleasure. He is a visual artist who does not overly rely on his admittedly fun razzle and on-stage dazzle, but one whose music you could enjoy with your eyes closed.

I was happy to chat with Ricky all these years after we crossed paths at the teen magazine I ran; I've always wanted to do follow-up interviews with the kids I worked with, so getting to debrief one who's gone on to bigger and better things was a real pleasure...

Derek-Hough-kiss-Sasha-FarberEwww!

Derek Hough and Sasha Farber just kissed after their dance with Bethany Mota on Dancing With the Stars, but it's okay...they wiped their mouths in mock-disgust and then gave each other a no-homo bro-hug. Ugh, this stuff is so old.
