Demi Goddess: Lovato Moves Into The Role Of Gay Icon Comments (0)

Demi-Lovato-Really-Dont-Care

Former Disney queen Demi Lovato—whose grandpa was gay and who has dated at least one gay dude—has a new break-up song called “Really Don't Care,” but she's used its music video to make a statement about LGBT rights. Lots of bubbly fun...

Click It Up: Phony Anti-Stans, Real Damage Comments (0)

I was pleasantly surprised to see Buzzfeed throwing its weight into investigating the identity of Examiner.com's notorious “Angela Cheng,” a figure who has written some of the most vitriolic (and Angela-Chenguntrue) garbage about celebrities that I've ever read.

“She” is unfairly mischaracterized as “anti-Gaga,” however. “Angela Cheng” and her ilk at Examiner.com are not anti-Gaga, they are pro-click. In fact, as I wrote last year, Cheng was previously a rabidly pro-Gaga fan who was hellbent on defaming Madonna. She was, you may recall, the person who popularized the sentiment that Madonna “helped spread AIDS.”

I wanted Madonna to sue “her” back then. Madonna is not litigious—ain't nobody got no time for that—but if she'd sued over Cheng's wildly libelous statements, the suit may have at least forced Examiner.com to admit that it has very little control over what its uniformly untalented, incurious “writers” post. I was most shocked, in Buzzfeed's piece, to discover that Examiner.com even has a policy against defaming people. That would seem to directly contradict its business model of the past few years. It took high-profile goading from Buzzfeed for Examiner.com to finally remove Cheng's entire oeuvre...but, of course, the damage has already been done.

It should be embarrassing for Perez Hilton that he congratulated “Cheng” on a job well done. I think the theory that “Cheng” = Hilton is not without merit, though he has flatly denied it.

The Internet is already rife with idiots malevolently and anonymously slurring anyone and everyone, we don't need a massive Web site encouraging and profiting from it.

I wish anyone defamed by Examiner.com (Bill Werde of Billboard is an individual unjustly maligned) would unite and sue it back into the Stone Ages. Or at least back to the print days, when people were held accountable for the information and misinformation they chose to put out into the world.

Bottom line: Lady Gaga's biggest troll is actually just a click-happy hack...and one who's probably making a living, albeit somewhat meagerly, off of your outrage.

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.

Perez Calls Out Gaga Comments (0)

Perez-Hilton-Lady-Gaga-Wendy-WilliamsPerez, Gaga, Wendy Williams...we just need Jerry Springer.

Perez Hilton has gone to Wendy Williams to reply to Lady Gaga, who dissected their feud for Howard Stern recently.

Hilton explicitly calls out Gaga as a person with serious "substance abuse issues" who "uses people." Of the infamous interview during which they initially fell out, he says she was "obliterated drunk, among other things" during that encounter. He denies knowing she lived in the building where he was apartment-shopping, saying she thinks the world revolves around her and therefore everyone must know where her residence is:

Perez-Beyonce"She said in an interview recently that I was a 'fake friend.' Now if you know anything, or one thing about Perez Hilton, I think, is that I am not fake and I keep it real. And, I viewed her as an IRL friend—in real life friend. I viewed her as more than just a friend. I jokingly nicknamed her 'my wifey.' To me she was that kind of friend.
 
"She hasn't really gone in depth about her issues. She said recently, over the last couple of years, she's had issues with drugs and alcohol. When we were filming that [interview] she got obliterated drunk, amongst other things...She got really upset because I asked her about her boyfriend. And I'm like, I didn't ask anything inappropriate. Just me even bringing her boyfriend up set her off. But you know, when people are on drugs and alcohol, they behave irrationally, erratically and are mean to those they love."

I'm not sure I buy that Perez wouldn't know Gaga's building in NYC, but the drug stuff is mentioned far too often to feel made up.

No matter who's to blame and no matter the extenuating circumstances, Perez will never have the public's empathy so won't win this battle. But depending on what road Gaga goes down personally and professionally, this feud could very well wind up having some foreshadowing aspects.

Gallery from the party above, plus tons more photos of Madonna & others below.

A few hours ago, I was lucky enough to attend the launch party for Madonna's secretprojectrevolution, a 17-minute short film made in conjunction with Steven Klein that's meant to address discrimination and injustice in the world.

Madonna-secretprojectrevolution

I arrived around 9 for the event, then had to kill time until 10 before the doors opened. The e-mail containting the invite had stressed promptness, warning we may not get in if we arrived past 10:45. But too early was no good either. How would everyone get into the Gagosian Gallery between 10 and 10: 45? Turns out the guest list was just that small, maybe 250 people.
