American Idiot? Comments (0)

Raven

Raven-Symoné tells Oprah she's tired of being labeled as gay...or even as African-American. She's cool with being labeled an American, though.

No word on if she is fine being labeled a woman and/or a human being.

It's nice to think we have the power to live outside our societal labels, but we do not. Until it was legal, she would have been disallowed from marrying her female partner because they are gay. In many places in the country, her blackness could lead her into a lot of situations my whiteness would not. The list goes on.

I think it comes off as arrogant, like when white people claim to be color-blind. Maybe it's coming from a good place, but maybe it's also coming from a very sheltered place, a place most people never get close enough to in order to be able to make the same proclamations.

Chicago...Isn't That Where Oprah Lives? Comments (0)

Encyclopedia-Madonnica-Madonna-1

When I was in Chicago to promote Encyclopedia Madonnica in 1995, I met Jae-Ha Kim at the Chicago Sun-Times, which resulted in this lavish coverage—a two-page spread in the gigantic newspaper. She was a doll, and we have remained in touch off and on ever since.
