Keepin' It MIGHTY REAL: A Review Of That Must-See Sylvester Musical Comments (0)

MightyReal266Resolutely fabulous

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: ***1/2 out of ****

Sylvester (September 6, 1947—December 16, 1988) was a force of nature—he forced his nature on a world that was at times unwilling to accept him for the person he didn't choose to be, and for the MightyReal565person he chose to be. It's hard to imagine Sylvester's brand of authenticity bringing him success in the 1970s, but he had a good imagination because success is what he had. With some indelible disco classics and a refusal to play the game required of most other popular singers, he became a gay icon and an inspiration in his short life—he died of AIDS at 41.

In Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical, Anthony Wayne (who also wrote the book and is co-director and co-producer with his partner Kendrell Bowman) resurrects Sylvester, doing a damn fine job of disproving any notion that Sylvester was inimitable. In a performance that's informed by Wayne's obvious respect for the icon, he recalls without mimicking Sylvester's piercing falsetto in a string of soaring musical numbers that draw from the entertainer's entire oeuvre.

Out Songwriter Bob Crewe Dies @ 82 Comments (0)

Ellie Greenwich-Bob CreweNovember 12, 1930—September 11, 2014: Crewe with the equally acclaimed Ellie Greenwich in the '60s

Bob Crewe, a legendary American songwriter and openly gay member of what Joe.My.God. lovingly IDs as the gayest group with the gayest Top 40 hit ever, has died at 82

What a list of incredible hits he wrote! One of my favorites is “Can't Take My Eyes Off of You”, especially the Pet Shop Boys version, after the jump...

Madonna-Diplo

Madonna, saying she's been “having a lot of fun with” her collaborator Diplo, confirms to Billboard she's aiming for a 2015 album release.

My (smart) source was right!

 
Who's That Boy? Comments (0)

Adolpho-BlaireWhen I met performer Adolpho Blaire (pictured, proving his love for Madonna to me) at Ben Rimalower's hilarious/terrifying one-man show Bad With Money tonight, I had a funny feeling we'd wind up with a lot in common—one of the first things he mentioned is that he'd just uploaded two videos of himself as a little boy rocking out to Madonna.

I think he's just joined the ranks of Robert Jeffrey and Shaun Sperling with these flametastic displays!

The first is this unbelievably committed rollerblading performance (he calls it RollerPrancing) set to Madonna's “Oh Father”: 

After the jump, we get a closeup of Adolpho's tight vogueing, complete with finger-snapping, near-splits and strategic clapping. Too bad Madonna got over her penchant for taking little boys on tour with her after Who's That Girl, because Adolpho would've killed on Blond Ambition...
