Cagney & Lacey & Clinton: TV Shows That Would Probably Be With Her Comments (0)

Tumblr_mp043237wO1sxu0g2o1_400(TV still via CBS)

Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless provided a Cagney & Lacey reunion at an event last night to raise cash for Hillary Clinton. Hillary needs more money so she can fend off Bernie Sanders for another month while simultaneously fighting the real enemy, Donald Trump.

Don't you think Cagney & Lacey just feels right for a Hillary event?

A baker's dozen other TV shows that feel Hillary-ish:

Kate and Allie

The only household in TV-land headed by two women not to produce two votes for Hillary would probably be Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Parks and Recreation

C'mon, Leslie could never say “Knope” to her idol. The biggest hold-out would be Ron, who of course would have assembled a homemade fertilizer bomb to park in a truck outside the local polling station.

Will & Grace

Will exemplifies the thoughtful, conservative-slanted, socially liberal gay-for-Hillary crowd; Jack exemplifies the thoughtless, liberal-slanted, socially even-more-liberal gay-for-Hillary crowd; Grace would say she was phone-banking but sneak off to Burger King instead; Karen, fortunately, wouldn't vote. (Also, the show was the first sitcom ever to name-check Obama ... way back in 2004! (Starts at 4:00)!)

Cybill

Though I think Shepherd in real life is a gun-lovin' political wild card, the characters—a feisty liberal and a rebellious oligarch—would probably overlap, Venn-style, for HRC.

Murphy Brown

Is there really any doubt that Murphy would be an “I'm with Her” gal? All that Quayle hunting worked out about as well for the Republicans as it did for Dick Cheney.

Music Legend Prince Dies @ 57 Comments (0)

GiphyPrince Rogers Nelson: June 7, 1958—April 21, 2016 (GIF via here)

TMZ, after first reporting on a mysterious death at Prince's compound, has confirmed the worst: The rock legend has died at 57.

Just days ago, Prince—reportedly suffering from “the flu” for weeks—was cared for after his plane made an emergency landing. He had been resting at home ever since, until his body was apparently discovered early today.

Rumors are rampant across the Internet regarding the notoriously secretive icon's health status leading up to his shocking death, with some claiming it was an open secretly he was battling full-blown AIDS via the power of prayer, having gone off his medications. One thing that is for certain, Prince had become an avid Jehovah's Witness in recent years.

One of the premier pop, rock and R&B artists of the '80s, Prince released two albums in the late '70s before exploding onto the scene with his album Dirty Mind (1980), now considered a classic. His work quickly became characterized by his virtuoso guitar skills (Jimi Hendrix was an obvious inspiration), his funky delivery and his frankly sexual lyrics, the latter of which became a problem for him with censors early on, and with Prince himself later, when he became sternly religious.

Over the years, he released some of the most successful and best-remembered albums in pop, including his masterpiece Purple Rain (1984), the soundtrack to his highly successful film of the same title. He won the Oscar for Best Original Song Score for the piece, beating out the Muppets and Christopher Cross. It was the '80s.

His other smash-hit albums included Controversy (1981), 1999 (1982), Around the World in a Day (1985), Parade (1986), Sign o' the Times (1987), Lovesexy (1988) and Graffiti Bridge (1990). An unreleased version of his The Black Album, meant as a follow-up to Sign o' the Times, was a collector's Holy Grail until it was commercially released in 1994.

Prince was famously at odds with his record label, Warner Bros., for years, fighting for his right to control his own catalogue. To combat what he viewed as artistic slavery, he released albums very quickly in the '90s, changed his name from Prince to  170px-Prince_logo.svg, controversially sued his own fans for illegally downloading his work, signed with Arista and would eventually release his own work on his own terms, though never with as much success or fanfare as he'd experienced in the '80s and early '90s.

Like many other '80s acts, Prince's chart supremacy stalled prematurely, with the last Top 40 hit in his lifetime being a re-release of “1999” in 1998, and his last original release to go Top 40 being “The Holy River” in 1997. He was, however, able to make a dent with studio albums, releasing two in 2014 (both of which went Top 10) and another two in 2015.

Over the years, Prince has played the Super Bowl, won seven Grammys (and had two albums awarded the Grammy Hall of Fame Award), received many lifetime achievement acknowledgments and continued to play live shows until just before he died. Late last year, he gave a performance so intimate and so late hardly anyone was there to see it—though old flame Madonna, who was unabashedly influenced by and in awe of his talent, made the cut.

In February, Prince's protégée Vanity, aka Denise Matthews, also died at 57

Prince's death, coming just three months after the sudden death of David Bowie—one of the other very few musicians often credibly referred to as being a genius—will hit music fans hard. It's also worth noting that while many huge stars of the '60s (Diana Ross, Paul McCartney) are still with us, how curious and unfortunate it is that most of the biggest music stars of the '80s have passed away (Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Prince); I would venture to say that the only other pop stars (and Prince was of course categorizable in many other ways) of the '80s left standing are Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Phil Collins and perhaps George Michael. Note: I'm not trying to start a hierarchy war. I know Janet Jackson, Hall & Oates, Bon Jovi and Lionel Richie were indelible parts of the '80s.

Ted Da!: MAURY Guest Becomes Internet-Famous In Worst Possible Way Comments (0)

I hesitate before I tell a woman she looks exactly like any public figure, as I have experienced negative reactions to what I intend to be positive comparisons ranging from America Ferrera to Angelina Jolie.

But I can promise you I would not tell a lady she looks like a gentleman, and if I somehow decided she would enjoy that gender play, I would never, ever tell one she resembled Ted Cruz.

 
They Read Everyone Else, Now You Can Read Them: Alaska & Sharon Have Published Novels, Girl! Comments (0)

It's been a super secret process, but I can finally announce that I've just published the first novel with which I've been associated in 18 years!

Unspecified(Cover by Donny Meloche/published by Producer Entertainment Group)

As part of the new “Sickening Adventures” series, I co-authored with the delightful, slightly renamed RuPaul's Drag Race star Alaska Thunderfun and the Inner Space Odyssey, a trippy fantasy about being yourself ... even if yourself happens to have crash-landed on Earth by mistake in 1979, okrrrr?

Adding to the good news: Sharon Needles, with Michael Thomas Ford, is publishing her own novel, Sharon Needles and the Curse of the Devil's Deck. That's Deck, with an E, whores.

Unspecified-1(Cover by Donny Meloche/published by Producer Entertainment Group)

Both books, bearing fantastic covers designed by Donny Meloche, are—like the queens themselves—out now!

At the top of this post, check out video of the entire Season 8 cast reacting to news of the novels (“Season 8 is Season Great! I couldn't possibly choose a favorite because I love them all,” Alaska says. “It's been such a pleasure watching every Monday like the rabid fan that I am.”) and below is my exclusive Q&A with Alaska, who should go on to become the next Gore Vidal ... or Vidal Sassoon ... or something.

Please buy the books and let me know what you think ...
