I like Madonna as much as the next guy—okay, more—but if this is what Material Girl is selling..yuck. I can't picture Madonna wearing anything like this at any point in her life.

"Sorry I'm Late"—How I FINALLY Met Madonna Comments (35)

PhotoaYes, this is me with Madonna's chair

I met Madonna.

When I type that, it has the cutesy bluntness of "we bought a zoo." But even wilder than purchasing a zoo, I did finally get to meet a woman who has inspired me for three decades.

By "meet," I don't mean in the magazine coverline sense, I mean I met-met her—like, shook her hand, was introduced, sat knee-to-knee with her and conversed.

And frighteningly, it almost never happened.

And I Am A Material Girl...That's Debateable Comments (9)

SafariScreenSnapz001
Madonna's search for the next "Material Girl" just got hilarious with this dryly funny clip featuring the Material Mom and her own li'l Material Girl, Lola. I love their interplay. Madonna almost bursts out laughing when claiming she cares about feelings, and Lola's sardonic replies ("That's debateable..." "In old person world...") are priceless. Also, Madonna found her best angle of the moment, no? Gorgeous, much? After the jump...

Yeah, so Star (August 8, 2011) is so superconcerned that Kelly Osbourne is a potentially bad influence on Madonna's Lola...but where were they when Taylor Momsen was the face of Material Girl???

OK!, If You Say So... Comments (6)

GREAT picture of Madonna with Lola and Material Girl spokesperson Kelly Osbourne in OK! (July 11, 2011). I realize Kelly O. is a Madonna buff and LGBT rights supporter—kudos—but to read Madonna noting her "edgy, cool" and "unique sense of style" is nonetheless a bit of a horse pill for me. I can't get past the reality TV past and lack of any real there there.

Madonnarama breaks the news—and I mean it that way, too—that Kelly Osbourne is the new face of Material Girl for 2011, replacing Taylor Momsen.

Madonna-Mert-Marcus-Interview-Ho-8 I don't really get using a 26-year-old...I think of Material Girl as being a more junior fashion line. And I'm not much a fan of Osbourne's (or of the Osbournes), though she seems "nice" in a Kevin Costner/Blond Ambition way.

In the first image released, it's almost like they're trying to make her look like Madonna! (Not Lola.)

Well, I guess Osbourne is popular and this will get the line some continued attention.

Boy Culture Turns 5: My Favorite Posts Comments (23)

6a00d8341c2ca253ef00e54f16b6088833-800wi

Img_0736As of midnight tonight, it will be exactly five years since my first post. It's hard to imagine it's been that long, and a lot's changed—the tone and subject matter are different, how often I post, my limits (no nudity in a couple of years due to ad constraints). I've devoted a crazy amount of time and money and energy to this blog for a very small financial return (you couldn't guess low enough), but it's always rewarding to have this forum with which to express myself, keep my writing ability fluid, perhaps influence a couple of people here and there, share obsessions with strangers (in both senses of the word) and learn new things.

6wzn3lxTake That's Howard...can you believe this happened onstage at a pop concert?

Here are some of the posts that were most important to Boy Culture's history. For the uninitiated, some of the oldest ones refer to Boy Culture, the movie made of my novel; I started the blog at the time Boy Culture was being filmed as a way to keep people informed of the progress...and it all snowballed from there.

Some of these posts are milestones when it comes to the hits they provided but most are filled with original writing and/or photography and video and are just the posts of which I'm proudest. I hope you'll take some time to click on them and send their links around to others—and some time is what you'll need...
