And He's Almost Done With It! Comments (0)

La-Toya

Big ups to my friend Steve in Chicago for snapping this. This dude on the right is reading—in 2015—an original hardcover copy of La Toya Jackson's first memoir, which came out in 1991. Love it! I just mentioned that book in my memoir, which is coming from Lethe Press in the spring (gulp).

There's no better way of turning 46—as I did on December 25—than doing it with Guy Ritchie's old body...and old wife! Thanks to Yori DaVillas for the very convincing PS job.

#TBT: A Leopard Never Changes Its Spots Comments (0)

Matthew-Rettenmund

Me in my aunt and uncle's finished basement on the leopard pillow I loved. I guess prints were really in that year.

Today is my 46th birthday! Hopefully, I'm middle-aged, because 92 doesn't sound so bad once you're 46.

I will never forget that shirt! My mom used to complain that I wasn't an adventurous dresser once I got old enough to tell her I would only wear blue, black or brown solids.

Rich Man, Lepore Man Comments (0)

Amanda-LeporeThis old thing? (P.S. I'm not holding the purse.)

Thanks to Gregory Pace, I finally got my picture taken with New York institution Amanda Lepore. We were at the CockyBoys (Work Unfriendly) holiday bash, where I also finally got to meet CockyBoys founder Jake Jaxson, Davyd Dixon (porn PR extraordinaire) and Zachary Sire (Str8 Up Gay Porn), and see Erik Schut (TLA).

Tayte-HansonA very important Tayte

As an added bonus, I had a great talk with Tayte Hanson, who just debuted new, shorter hair (but who is more substantive than that comment implies). Others on hand included Diesel Washington, Liam Riley, Levi Karter and Helix model (for now?) Ryker Madison...but I'm quite sure there were many more.

In my backyard at 6021 N. McKinley Road, (313) 659-3886. Which I memorized in kindergarten and will never forget.

John Hancock-Tease: Richard Simmons Comments (0)

Autograph-Richard-Simmons

I was a very fat kid. Like, I was a kid and a half. By first grade, I was the fattest kid in my class, a 75-pounder.

Sometime during grade school, I became fixated on Richard Simmons. I liked that he was such a screaming homo (for your reference, Richard Simmons to this DAY is not officially out) and I embraced his 1980s silliness. Plus, I thought if I danced around to my little black-and-white TV while he bounced around inside of it, I might get skinny.

At some point, I wrote him of my progress, and would you believe he wrote back? I didn't believe it myself, which is why I licked my finger and smeared his autograph, just to make sure it was real.

John Hancock-Tease: Penn Badgley Comments (0)

Autograph-Penn-Badgley

When I ran a teen mag, I knew what the fuck I was doing. I could spot stars in their embryonic form from a mile away. Less hyperbolically, I was pretty good at figuring out which kids would blossom—I made good, early calls on Zac Efron, the Jonas Brothers, Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson and lots more.

I was also on the money with Penn Badgley, who was such a cutie on a new show in 2002 called Do Over that we did an exclusive shoot with him.

When he ran in the mag, he sent me this adorable signed headshot. I can't tell you how rare it was to receive a thank-you.
