RuPaul

RuPaul made a surprise appearance on the Tonys, introducing eventual winner Neil Patrick Harris's electrifying performance from Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

This feels like Ru's exclamation point and period at the end of “tranny”gate.

FLATT-Liners: The Wit & Wisdom Of Debbie Harry, Neil Patrick Harris & Ron Galella Comments (0)

The covers of Flatt (Debbie Harry & Neil Patrick Harris) are by Hattie Stewart and are works of art in their own right.

Flatt #4 (2014) has an amazing Debbie Harry cover shot by Christina Lessa. In that image and in at least one or two of the others inside, Lessa manages to make Debbie look identical to her Rockbird self of very nearly 30 years ago, when Scavullo was capturing the Blondie frontwoman's beauty.

In the wide-ranging interview, also done by Lessa, Debbie has this to say about her late friend Andy Warhol:

“I thought that he was a genius. He did something that was crossover: he took graphic art and technical art and he merged it with fine art. This was, in part, the basic philosophy and theory of pop art. Andy Warhol, part of his genius, was that he was a very good listener. Most people are expounding and talking about their ideas, Andy, he listened.”

I love that. That is so true. I think to whatever extent I am an artist, I am of the observer variety. And yet to whatever extent I am a person, I am of the expounding variety.

The back cover is an equally impressive Neil Patrick Harris shot. He's interviewed by Stephen Colbert inside, and says of Hedwig:

HEDWIG AND THE Unapologetic B*tch Comments (0)

Neil-Patrick-HarrisDon't tell Madonna not to take pictures during a Broadway show, enslaver!

Madonna has Facebooked her adoration for Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which in my opinion is one of the best shows on Broadway (and was the best Off-Broadway over a decade ago). She must've missed the memo about not taking photographs.

Recall that Madonna and Hedwig's Neil Patrick Harris are old co-stars from The Next Best Thing, in which they crooned “American Pie” graveside:

Neil-Patrick -Harris

Neil Patrick Harris is photographed by superperv Terry Richardson for the cover of Rolling Stone, so of course the image is sexualized and centers around his penis—sort of. It's a great shot (though that left iris seems oddly large or something?), and NPH is basically gay divinity by now, showing others how one can be an artist and openly gay in Hollywood and have an apparently happy life.

In fact, NPH says coming out helped his career (almost as much as Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle did):

“Once all the cards were on the table, I got more opportunities than ever. Some actors don't get hired because you can't look into their soul and see what they're like, because they're kept guarded.”

Tony Tony Tony Has Done It Again Comments (0)

NEIL-PATRICK-HARRIS

The Tony nominations were disappointing to me, in that some shows I supported and enjoyed so much were snubbed.

I think Cabaret is as amazing (if not more) as it was 15 years ago and Bullets Over Broadway was an old-fashioned hoot that compares favorably to many others that have been nominated over the years. I stupidly passed up discounted tickets for Gentleman's Guide in favor of the starrier Of Mice and Men (which I also thought was really good, if not amazing).

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the best show in town, so it was nice to see it get nominated for just about everything; that's at least one reason to watch the Tonys.

Were you surprised by any of the high-profile omissions—Bullets, Rocky, If/Then, Denzel, Franco, Michelle Williams, Cabaret in general?

The Skinny On Neil Patrick Harris Comments (0)

Neil-Patrick-Harris“I'm becoming, like, Jared Leto-manorexic,” Harris has acknowledged.

Neil Patrick Harris is knockin' 'em dead in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway (see it!), a role which has led him to lose a lot of weight in an effort to appear more like the character. But don't let that stop you from commenting on this AP interview video with Harris (h/t Joe.My.God.—read it!); the comments are about how he must be on drugs or even have AIDS.

Neil-Patrick-Harris-Hedwig-commentsLove that the Lance Armstrong guy (dudelivestrong) is the first to mention drugs.

There's also, further down the thread, an actor attacking Harris for being another actor in need of having his ego stroked. (Why, for promoting his show?)

People are gross.

Neil-Patrick-Harris

Annie Leibovitz is very one-trick pony to me, but you can't not look at a picture of Neil Patrick Harris's trouser snake(s). Seeing Hedwig tomorrow night. Will I love it? I saw the original when the person I'm going with was in middle school.
