Double Rainbow Comments (4)

My memory's fuzzy on the exact quote, but I think Liza Minnelli always said NO ONE could sing her mother's signature tune "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" like Judy Garland, except for Matthew Morrison and Gwyneth Paltrow. (If you're not a Judy purist, the latter is available on iTunes as we speak and then burst into song.)

Matthew Bares All Comments (2)

MatthewMorrison1 Matthew Morrison chats with Out, talking about his Elton John duet and the LGBT visibility Glee is providing on TV. He also was asked about his stint at Broadway Bares, one of my favorite nights in years (my review here). About Bares, he said:

"It was exhilarating. People don’t know this, but everyone is nervous about going out there, so everyone’s backstage getting drunk—kind of easing the nerves a little bit. I didn’t think of it as a strip show. It’s a performance. And the audience is so into it. They’re all drunk, too. It’s a fun show to be a part of."

hunk Matthew Morrison is releasing his debut solo Mercury Records single "Summer Rain" today at iTunes.
 No, it's not a Belinda Carlisle cover. It's also definitely not trying to appeal to the ankle-biters, and he's not trying to be someone he's not (no out-of-nowhere rappers, no bowties made of hair).

After the jump, behind-the-scenes video of Morrison performing the song, which is the first release from his upcoming (May 10) debut album...

Kiss The Boy Comments (5)

Tom-BradyTom Brady plants one on his dad

Men are kissing other men a lot more lately. Even the kind of men who aren't just using the kiss as a necessary step toward oral sex.

Blast_lmnt_article I remember during the Lou Pearlman days, whenever I'd meet a new boyband, I'd have to do this weird, manly-but-friendly half-hug/half-handshake. The only boybander who ever kissed me on my cheek was straight arrow Matthew Morrison, and that was how I knew he would never stay in LMNT but was instead Broadway-bound. (Yes, this was unnecessary braggadocio.)

Matthew_Morrison_unbuttoned_shirt_HArticle It's Matthew Morrison's straightest-ever interview (he's been on hetero-damage control ever since he was ambushed by an Elle journalist who assumed he is gay), but Details mitigates that with his gay-friendliest photo shoot. Meaning he's shamelessly shirtless.

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

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...

Teacher/student confluence

Did you catch Glee's Rocky Horror Picture Show episode last night? Right off the bat, I must admit—I never liked the movie. I saw a live show in Chicago 15 years or more ago and that was only okay to me, too. Further, I've not been a big Glee fan. So a marriage of two gay-positive, pop-culture phenoms should have been enough to help me shake my reservations. Instead, it was just two times the shrug.

's Matt Morrison is on the campaign trail for Democrat Lee Fisher's Senate bid in Ohio.

He has also spoken out against anti-gay bullying in schools—even alluding to the idea that Ryan Murphy may want to address it in future episodes of the series.
