Boy-George

Boy George comments on some of the hottest hits of 1984. Surprisingly, he seems most taken with Bruce Springsteen. But unsurprisingly, they make him talk about Madonna, too, which comes up when he's asked to comment on “Borderline” (released February 15, 1984):

“I went to one of those really early tours, where she was dressed in all Stephen Sprouse [sic]...Who knew what she was gonna become? Do you know what I mean? I mean, I don't think you could have ever imagined—do you know what I mean?—how formidable she was gonna be. It was just, 'Oh, she won't last.' You know? You just didn't get it. It was just phenomenal.”

He also says records now are not allowed to linger; everything is an instant hit or is gone.

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.”

Justin Bieber Rolling Stone wifebeater hot ready legalBetter than being "hot, sexy & dead" like Jim Morrison was

Justin Bieber tells Rolling Stone he feels he carries himself "in a more manly way," his manager claims he's the most mature kid in the world and the mag's cover proclaims him to be "HOT READY LEGAL." Do you agree with any of these statements?

Rest In Peace (As Long As You Stay Dead) Comments (11)

Andrew Breitbart died and the mainstream media immediately went into gracious mode, and then into lionizing mode—he wasn't just not all bad, he was a real patriot, a true American.

Andrew Breitbart  dead

Donna Brazile unwisely tweeted that he was a genius.

At least Gawker and Rolling Stone are keeping it real—the man was a douchebag and his legacy is poisonous.

No need to dance on his grave while his shocked family watches, but NO need to pretend he was anything less than a complete asshole.

IMG_7536Prove it!

As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.

Here are my favorite 100+ posts out of nearly 11,000. Please take some time to read (or re-read!) a couple and tweet or Facebook any you like.
