Via Facebook: One of the most successful girl groups of all time, Bananarama, is reuniting for a UK tour.

In a simple message posted to Facebook, the trio wrote:

Miss Fahey is BACK!! & We're so excited to be going on a UK Tour this November/ December 🇬🇧 Be sure to sign up & check out our new website www.bananarama.co.uk #Bananarama2017

Andrew “Durandy” Golub, the author of The Music Between Us: Concert Ads of Duran Duran, also happens to be sitting on the world's largest Duran Duran archive — so you know the book he created was done so with something more alarming than mere love.

The hardcover, 107-page book will run you $45 plus shipping, but it's chock-full of rare print ads and posters, including for some items that never wound up happening.

Madonna mega-fan Hamlet Tallaj hosted the production of Emmy and the Breakfast Club — that long-awaited, detail-obsessed retelling of Madonna's early-'80s NYC days from director Guy Guido — at his chic shop Hamlet's Vintage (146 W. 4th St., NYC) this weekend.

The pics he took are more proof that while Jamie Auld kinda looks Madonna-ish in real life, she is set to become the all-time, hands-down, most jaw-droppingly exact replica of Madonna that ever shimmied onto the big screen.

The likeness, once she is put into hair, makeup and painstakingly recreated wardrobe by grooming god Guido, is astonishing.

Keep reading for one more snap, this one posted on the movie's official Instagram ...

Back In The Gay Comments (0)

Remember when you needed a service to help you find a gay roommate? (Or a gay guy to help you find a roommate to service you?)

I tried one when I moved to NYC and I believe that's how I found the guy I lived with in Weehawken, New Jersey, for about eight months. I also remember calling a regular ad for a roommate in Hoboken and I asked the guy if it would be an issue that I was gay and he said, “Yeah, it kinda would be, since we're not and we all have girlfriends.”

Better to know in advance that the people you're moving in with are homophobes.
