Taylor Swift Shows Them All With LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO Video Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-08-28 at 10.37.08 AMKudos.

I am not into the song, but Taylor Swift's “Look What You Made Me Do” video, even if you don't care about her petty-ass rivalries and score-settling, is a creative, beautiful, compelling visual feast.

This is a classic ...

Katy Perry Releases Busy SWISH SWISH Video Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-08-24 at 11.04.11 AMI dunno. 

I really like this era of Katy Perry, certainly more than most, and I love “Swish Swish,” but releasing an all-star music video now, months after she performed it on SNL, it just feels like the timing is way off.

The video is aggressively fun, but not really, actually fun (for me). It's just kinda forced. What say you? ...

6-PACK — Australian Gay-Marriage Vote Gets Ugly + Accused Thrill-Killer Is Doing Great, Thanks For Asking + Lovin' Bloom + BEACH RATS Blow-Out + Bannon Comes For Trump? + Arizona GOP's ALL-Asian-AMERICAN GIRL! Comments (0)

DHlq-eyUAAAz6toThe campaign for marriage equality in Australia has taken an ugly turn. Ahead of a vote (really? straights get to vote on whether gays have rights?), mysterious forces have produced outrageously negative posters and flyers (bilingual, too — handy!) condemning gay people as child molesters and unfit parents.

Even wishy-washy PM Malcolm Turnbull — as well as all prominent voices on either side of the debate — has condemned the effort. Keep reading for more on this ugly development ...

6-PACK — Escola Scores + Trump Retweets Alt-Right Leader + Seth Meyers Trashes Trump + Taylor Swift Wins + Sec. Of Defense On Trans Ban + '90s Pop Star Showers For The Cameras! Comments (0)

HqdefaultOne of my favorite sentences I've ever read in a mainstream newspaper: “'All I do is watch Turner Classic Movies and crochet,' says Escola, who is working on a blanket he says he'll finish in December.”

Escola is a familiar, mirth-filled yet deadpan face in Web series, and his uncanny ability to play women — it ain't drag — is his ticket to the top. Keep reading for his story, and more of the day's hottest links ...

WIDGETDListed: Drag queen Vicky Vox is seething mad, saying that Katy Perry's team tried to get a bunch of queens to do a music video free-for-nothin'.

WIDGETDaily Kos: Trump Jr.'s big meeting was attended by one heretofore undisclosed man — a former Russian counterintelligence agent suspected to still have ties to Putin.

WIDGETPolitico: Remember when Jared Kushner was supposedly the liberal, milder Trump associate? Nah. He wants to go nuclear against meeting reports.

WIDGETHuff Post: The historically unpopular idea of repealing Obamacare and replacing it with Trumpcare is not yet a dead issue, but many sick people will be.

WIDGETKenneth in the (212): If you notice male tennis players' underwear through their shorts, you're not alone.

WIDGETInstagram @austinarmacost: The former A-Lister continues to show off his impressively A-list physique with a nude handstand and bareassed Insta.

Gretchen, Katy Perry Stand-In, Once Covered JUSTIFY MY LOVE ... Comments (0)

Gretchen-Justify-My-LoveShe definitely had intercourse on this shoot, whereas Madonna just cock-teased that dog. (Video still via Gretchen)

Gretchen, the Brazillian bombshell-of-a-woman who stands in for Katy Perry in her “Swish Swish” lyric video is, as I noted yesterday, apparently Madonna's age.

Now, a fan helpfully told me she once covered “Justify My Love,” which I absolutely never knew! She should've been in my book!


Keep reading for the video, the highlights of which include the point where she inserts a microphone between her legs (plops the mic?) — giving “you put this in me” a whole new meaning — and the scene in which her athletic-socked foot sexily kicks off its pump ...

Katy Perry's SWISH SWISH Lyric Video Stars Human Meme Gretchen Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-07-03 at 6.09.18 PM(Video still via Katy Perry)

What the ... ?

Katy Perry's lyric video for the amazing “Swish Swish” cannily uses Brazilian popstar (and butt-star) Gretchen in her place. Gretchen who? Well, this chick:

FYI, she's Madonna's age.

Oh, man, I'd love some reaction videos from millennials who think people should be abandoned on ice floes past 33 ...

Calvin Harris just released his new single “Feels” ft. Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry & Big Sean.

This reminds me of “Chained to the Rhythm” if covered by Ace of Base. Oh, and I'm just sure when Katy decided to work with Calvin, Taylor Swift's ex, that it was in the spirit of moving on.
