Payne, Payne, Payne, Payne, Payne…And You Return It Comments (0)

Liam-payne-8-29-bdayPayne thinks he can say anything and if people react, there are better things to do than take him seriously.

It's officially the weekend of unfortunate comments by stars!

Liam Payne of One Direction tweeted warm words of support to the Robertsons regarding their "family values," then threw a Twitter fit when fans and bloggers called him out on it.

He feels people are twisting his words, and just because he likes a show, that doesn't mean he agrees with everything said on it.

The tweet:

Liam-Payne-Willie-Robertson

I appreciate that boy-banders are not hired for their brains, but surely this young man is smart enough to realize the difference between saying he loves  a show and directly sending public support to one of its stars, and surely he gets that saying he appreciates "the family values you still all behold" is synonymous with endorsing the family's stance on gay marriage. I mean, that is what they're (in)famous for at the moment.

Also, the insane argument used by so many people in these cases—that there are worse things in the world going on that we should focus on—never fails to infuriate me. What are we supposed to do, have a tribunal that decided which issues are worth being interested in and which should be meaningless? Because I'm pretty sure he is happy when his meaningless (well, there's world hunger to think about) albums come out and people pause to buy and enjoy them.

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.

One Direction struts their stuff for Teen Vogue (September 2013), discussing "the movie, THE GIRLS, the sold-out world tour.

In the interview, we learn that Zayn can't swim and that he gets "pleasure from the little things in life"  while Niall talks about not letting himself feel intimidated by potentially invasive fans. Liam claims the band has no rider (he's misinformed) because, "We're not that diva."Also Louis, who The Wanted's Max George has called out as gay, says, "I wear my heart on my sleeve."

It's good to know teen mags are still asking stuff like this of boys of the moment. They even ask about dating fans, to which Harry says:

"If I dated a girl, and she was a fan, surely it would be a bonus."
