Gus Kenworthy Was Team Shangela & Other Things I Learned At His Samsung Event With Nigel Sylvester Comments (0)

****IMG_4359_newGus before the event (All images by Gus Kenworthy)

****IMG_4367 copy_newMy pal Mark Greeno kindly alerted me to a Gus Kenworthy event moments before it was happening, so I tore down to Samsung 837 in the Meatpacking District to see what was happening.

Gus is a rare gay guy who talks about skiing some slopes without it meaning drugs, and he's also — as expected — 100% sweet. The event was messy! I arrived and got several different answers as to where to stand and what to do. I was even mistaken for Samsung staff and handed an official wristband IDing me as such. Okay!

Eventually, things became more clear, and Gus did a quick walk-through past us. I introduced myself (his boyfriend Matt Wilkas is currently attached to star in the Boy Culture Web series) ****IMG_4377_new and took some snaps of him with a few superfans, including a couple of guys who didn't look too shabby, even next to Gus! One guy, who later told me the day was one of the highlights of his life as a gay man and as an athlete, wisely had Gus sign some skis, which he happily did.

He Wrote The Book On Duran Duran Comments (0)

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.

As an ephemera addict, I couldn't take my eyes off of this, not even while dancing on the sand.

The Most Amazing Madonna Jacket EVER Comments (0)

DSCN4344(All images by Bill Branch)

Bill Branch sent me these eye-popping shots of his masterpiece, a Madonna-themed jacket he created in 1990 to wear to the Washington, D.C., Blond Ambition World Tour stop.

DSCN4336

He recalls, “I wore it once for 10 minutes.”

He did try to get Kurt Loder to show it to Madonna at the Truth or Dare premiere in NYC, but Loder didn't want the responsibility.

It was later displayed on his wall, but for most of its career — like Barry Manilow — it has bided its time in the closet.

Spectacular, iddinit?!
