Madonna-Whitney

This parody of a fantasy "Legends Panel" (Madonna, Michael, Whitney, Mariah, Janet...) is hysterical. If you're not familiar with this guy's stuff, you're in for a treat. It's nuts...

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.

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.

We Are Divo: A Review Of SCOTT NEVINS LIVE Comments (0)

Scott Nevins, that flashy boy from Flushing who abandoned NYC for Los Angeles (traitor!), was back in town with a new stand-up show at the Metropolitan Room, and he was not taking NO for an answer. He wanted me to come, and he wanted me to pay. This was a foreign concept to me. How did one do it...pay...for a show? (In reality, I do it all the time, but I'm definitely spoiled when it comes to shows I intend to review.)

Scott-Nevins-4As a kid, Scott says he shit glitter when he discovered a "Dorothy" from The Wizard of Oz doll.

ScottNevinsLiveNYC2ce5fdWell, I believe in supporting theater, and in supporting talent, and let me tell you, dropping $20 on Scott Nevins is a can't-lose proposition and sounds fun even if no stage is around. His NYC comeback show was sharp, charming and as funny as he is ripped. It's cruel that someone with such prominent abs should be able to incite so many belly laughs, but Nevins, with a combo of scatological humor, family gossip, celebrity dish and self-targeted barbs about his own vanity and love life, does just that.

As funny as his other material was (in particular his tales of growing up in a drunken Irish Catholic family), I was partial to his celebrity observations, as in the shit the little spy noticed while he was working with people like Lisa Vanderpump (or was that "Vandercunt?"), Lorna Luft (a good pal of his now), Carol Channing (he's one of her favorite people once she figures out who the hell he is) and others. In the same way his wit captures their idiosyncrasies, his beautiful singing voice captures Judy Garland—he ended his raucous set by singing relatively contemporary songs like "What's Love Got to Do With It?", "Last Dance," "It's Not Right, But It's Okay" and "Like a Virgin" as Garland, the last of which I recorded and posted above with his kind permission.

Whitney Houston: G-Men & The L Word Comments (5)

Whitney_Houston_throwback6"I Was Made to Love Him"

The FBI has released, in a document dump, 128 pages of material from 1988 to 1992 pertaining to Whitney Houston. Along with voluminous fan letters (that quickly turned into a stalker's manifesto), the dump is most interesting for containing information that Houston was extorted for cash because of her personal life:

"Another series of documents details a blackmail plot against Houston, conducted by a woman who alleged that she had sensitive and embarrassing information about the singer's relationships and personal life.

"The woman's demands climbed from $100,000 to $250,000. Houston, who died in February 2012, admitted having discussed personal matters with the woman, and her father ultimately sent the woman a payment to buy her silence."

Living in the closet may be beneficial for one's career, but it certainly takes a personal—and, sometimes, a financial—toll.

Whitney-houston-1-600
The Whitney Houston wax figures are pretty spot-on. So weird that her very casual tracksuit from when she sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" qualifies as one of her most iconic looks.
