Cher dazzled her diehard LGBT fans—and Hillary Clinton's—in Miami this week, taking a few moments to praise us for our refusal to abandon her during the lowpoints of her 51-year (!) career:

I am a terrible speaker—I'm not, like, kidding, I'm a terrible speaker. So I wrote down some stuff ... can you hear me well? ... because I wanted to not forget anything and I'm nervous, so ... First of all, I'm here because [gay people and I] have had a relationship, in one way or another, since I was 9 years old. When I was 9, you know, there were lots of men around me—very cool, my father, my mother's friends, we had artists, everyone I knew, like artists and actors and whatever, and then one day my mother brought home these two guys and I thought, “Oh, God, these guys are so much fun—why are they different?” Hairdressers. And I loved them so much. We went to Palm Springs and it was one of the greatest weekends of my life and I was 9 and I could tell then, okay? At 9! At 9, I knew that we were destined to be togther. One thing that's kinda serious. Well, it's kinda serious for me. You know,  I've been doing this for 51 years ... [makes gagging gesture] and I've had many, many, many ups and downs in my career and through it all, you guys never left.

My Obit For Lou Pearlman, The (((Gay?))) Bernie Madoff Of Boy Bands Comments (0)

Louis J. Pearlman, the onetime dirigible magnate who went on to found two of the most successful pop acts Img823 of all time—Backstreet Boys and their biggest rival, *NSYNC, how's that for a monopoly?—died in prison on Friday of undisclosed causes. He was only 62, which is hard to believe; like Angela Lansbury, he always projected a carefully crafted image that was far older than his years.

I have conflicted memories of the man who liked people to call him “Big Poppa,” having met and worked with him often in the late '90s and early '00s. I have too many anecdotes for a blog post, but the following form the guts of my take on the man who really, really enjoyed making the bands.

In 1998, I was the young founder of the country's first all-color, all-glossy teen-entertainment magazine, Popstar!, which was published by a seedy porn outfit called Mavety Media. It was—to put it mildly—a huge challenge for me to create, with the help of a talented designer and just one assistant editor, a 100-plus-page national magazine aimed at teen and tween girls out of the offices of a company that was also producing titles like Juggs and Playguy, the latter of which looked like a teen magazine if all the boys were naked. But it was a joy, too, not only envisioning and directing the execution of something that would find its way into hundreds of thousands of young people's lives each month, but doing it without the backing of a Hearst or a Primedia or even a Sterling/Macfadden. Instead, I had to work with a Sydney Greenstreet-like former Sunday school teacher who enjoyed telling stories of trips to Asia involving girls being lowered onto his manhood, and who started the first gay-porn mag out of the trunk of his car, but who craved legitimacy and was using me, in part, to get some.

I had no idea what I was doing. Any gay man who figures he knows what little girls like because we're in touch with our own inner little girl is bound to fail. My earliest work on my teen mag is rather beefcake-heavy, but I eventually discovered my readers preferred boycake. One person who knew that secret from day one was Lou Pearlman, who was fond of saying things like, “As long as God's making little boys, He'll be making little girls, and they'll love each other.” (And he would be right there collecting a tariff on that love.)

Even if I was not a natural-born little-girl whisperer, I was nothing if not an open-minded researcher. I was soon able to figure out which acts my readers wanted and locate their handlers. Getting them to bother sending materials to a start-up was another thing entirely. Bubblegum-pop machine Jive Records couldn't be bothered with me. I tended to do much better when I went directly to the parents, or to the managers, like Lou.

I got Lou's info and sent him a letter, explaining that I had launched a magazine, showing him the coverage I'd given his acts, and asking him to help make sure we received attention from the correct publicists. He called me up, and I can still hear his friendly voice. As lethargic as he looked, a man who was arguably eating at least some of his desires, Lou was a very direct and personable speaker. He praised my magazine and pledged to help me out. In truth, he knew a good thing when he saw it—I was giving him unparalleled coverage, including lavishing attention on his as-yet-unbroken acts, so it was not too hard for him to realize he should make sure images and interviews flowed in my direction.

Like my porn boss, he was using me for legitimacy.

Frank Ocean is back with the visual album Endless, which should be a cause for celebration.

I at first thought this tweet might be satirical, but nope. Maybe being black he'd realize being homophobic is no smarter than being racist, but nope. This is how ignorant people are.

Sure, this moron later tweeted:

But was it really a joke when he's also stating: 

 And when he's retweeting stuff like this:

This intellectually lazy bigot has 20,000 followers. SMH, as they say.

Thin-skinned, reluctantly out billionaire Peter Thiel and leather-skinned, unfortunately famous philanderer Hulk Hogan have won—after 14 years, will shut down, leading to turmoil (but promised reassignments) for its staffers. The outfit and its other sites were bought by Univision, a move a judge is expected to approve shortly.

I will miss Gawker. It had its share of stunts, but it also had a lot of very fine journalism—not least of which, articles by Rich Juzwiak. Anyone cheering the loss of the site is cheering the loss of the press's ability to report unpopular and sometimes provocatively critical things.

Peter Thiel is the biggest gay jerk in America.
