I'm Good At This: A Last-Minute Trip To The Hollywood Show Comments (0)

My "then and now" gallery is above...

I wasn't going to attend the latest Hollywood Show in L.A. at the Westin LAX this past Saturday. I'd made up my mind that while dropping in would make all the sense in the world if I were an Angeleno, dropping in from across the frickin' country made about as much sense as the fact that Joan Collins does these things out of an actual need for cash. (See my other trips to autograph shows at #5 on this list.)

“Even my worst orgasm was right on the money.”—Woody Allen

But then I figured out a bunch of other stuff to do in L.A. and splurged, booking Monday and arriving with some goodies for a variety of the over 100 (!) scheduled stars to sign. Unfortunately, it was one of my least exciting shows, but I was still reminded of that Woody Allen quote. You know the one.

BabyJaneHaunting detail from a covered table

The show was meh because, for one thing, quite a few stars canceled, including some whose advertised presence had helped me decide to go in the first place. For example, I'd spent part of one day sourcing a fabulous Rene Auberjonois portrait from The Eyes of Laura Mars on eBay, then tracking it down in person here in NYC, only to discover that he'd canceled the night before. Apparently, Rene told a fellow celebrity guest, “I don't have any pictures to bring so I'm not going.”

Rene-AuberjonoisI will get this signed by you, Rene!

I also missed seeing Dale Bozzio, the original Lady Gaga, whose lead vocals on the Missing Persons record Spring Session M are the perfect combo of pleasing and unnerving. No matter that she's since become a crazy cat lady—I love huh!

Elliott-GouldElliott Gould was a no-show...how would he have reacted if asked to sign this?

But it's a thin line between love and hate when it comes to fandom. I overheard one attendee fuming that the gossip columnist Rona Barrett had canceled (another one I'd been so curious to meet), saying, “She canceled? What a fucking bitch! I'm dying to meet her!”

Kelli-MaroneyKelli told me my friend, a former co-star of hers, would "clean up" if they did the show in tandem.

Not having as many stars to “get” made for a leisurely show. Unfortunately, it did not make for one of my favorite shows; kudos to the organizers for rounding up so many diverse celebs, but it just so happened that the ones I was most excited to meet didn't wow me. I had precious few fun encounters...well, if we're talking about the ones with celebrities.

Here they are. I calls 'em likes I sees 'em...

Hey, You Girls!: Celebrating J.Lo & Laverne Cox @ The 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards Comments (0)

IMG_4819 Rita MorenoRita's company was electric!

J.Lo-GLAADI had fun at The 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton on Saturday, even though it feels like covering the show is becoming more and more of a crapshoot as far as which stars I'll actually get. I remember the days when Cynthia Nixon and Sigourney Weaver were speaking with every single outlet at one of these things; increasingly, the A-listers bypass all but the broadest media (skipping even Logo, the biggest gay media there, in some cases).

IMG_4811 Laverne CoxQueen of the night, Laverne Cox

I arrived kinda late and was disappointed to discover my spot on the (indoor) carpet was in a hallway, so I'd be pressed against a wall as stars passed from photographers and TV media to large online and lesser online outlets. In all honesty, it worked out okay, in that no one was breathing down my neck, and any of the stars who didn't stop for me wouldn't have stopped for me no matter where I was.

Greg-Hernandez-Matthew-RettenmundStood next to Greg, who is a fabulous blogger, film writer and flirt. He'd just been injured at an event a few days earlier, so a number of the attendees were inquiring as to his health. Glad he seems to have survived with his sense of humor intact—he laughed at everything I said!

Here's his take on the same evening.

I Fucking Love RuPaul* Comments (0)

RuPaul

RuPaul's Drag Race and Logo (not RuPaul himself) have apologized for offending some trans people with the use of the popular catchphrase “You've got she-mail!” and  have dropped an episode deemed offensive to some transsexuals.

Cue scornful reactions from trans activists angry with the show, who feel it was little more than lip service, and cue scornful reactions from—I would guess—the vast majority of the (primarily) gay men who watch RDR and who are responding along the lines of “lighten up,” or, as Madonna passive-aggressively responded to her “nigga” scandal, by making reference to the “word police.”

 

I have a problem with both reactions; this isn't black-and-white any more than issues of gender identity are for many people.

MolloyFirst, while Parker Marie Molloy's “I fucking hate RuPaul” tweet that predates the show's decision to cease and desist with the trans verbiage was, in my opinion, fairly criticized as unprofessional over her simultaneous reporting for The Advocate (a once and occasionally still journalistically admirable publication that nevertheless once branded Madonna its “Sissy of the Year” ahead of virulently homophobic villains all because she'd clarified that she wasn't a lesbian), there's no accounting for personal taste, so if anyone wants to fucking hate on RuPaul for whatever reason, I get it.

In Praise Of Older Women: Aaron Taylor-Johnson Covers MEN'S HEALTH Comments (0)
  Aaron-Taylor-Johnson-Godzilla-3 Aaron-Taylor-Johnson-Godzilla-2 Aaron-Taylor-Johnson-Godzilla-4

Men's Health (May 2014) sports Aaron Taylor-Johnson of Godzilla on its cover, promising to clue us in on how he built 15 pounds of muscle for the flick. I'll give you one guess how he really built it, and guess what? It isn't listed in the magazine.

Aaron-Taylor-Johnson-Godzilla-1

I hadn't realized Taylor-Johnson had pulled a Patrick Dempsey, marrying a filmmaker twice his age (Samantha Taylor-Johnson), with whom he is raising four kids, including two from her previous marriage. Of this family situation, he says the idea he should be sowing oats at Hollywood parties instead of being challenged by fatherhood and marriage is wrong-headed:

“That's bullshit. They're not challenges. People are like, 'Don't you have to work really hard?' And I'm like, 'If you think it's hard, you must be in a shit marriage.'...It's the way I like my life. I like it nonstop.”
