OMG! Madonna left her sunglasses on during Lola's performance as "Rizzo" in Grease, according to the New York Post.

Except...she didn't.

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

TOTALLY RANDOM LISTS (2011—2013)

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.

Mr. Madonna Comments (3)

Madonna-Michael-Griffiths
I can't believe I wasn't familiar with Michael Griffiths, a talented singer and pianist who brings Madonna's catalogue to life while saying things he imagines she might say, albeit not in her voice or with any other help to make the impersonation resonate. He manages to capture Madonna (and skewer her a bit) without mimicking her. It's quite hilarious and brilliant, such as:

"You know, people are always asking me do I have a favorite song. And the convention is that I get all philosophical and say, 'How could I possibly choose just one? That's like asking me to choose between my children?' But actually, it's easy: I choose Lola."

Video of his "Like a Prayer" after the jump...

In spite of the image, this link is all about Lola's Vine, and a hilarious short clip that proves how shockingly similar her voice is to Mama Madonna's...and how close their perverse senses of humor are as well.
