Queerty is better as a member
Dame Shirley Bassey got her birthday started this weekend with some muscular men – and Santa. It’s good to know that the soon-to-be 70-year old singer can still get naughty.
You’ve gotta love Big Shirl. She’s like the British version of Dolly Parton – just the campest thing on two legs. Fantastic.
She better Work !!!!!
I love her…but she was “soon to be 70″ when I was 12 years old.
Black don’t crack.
A British Dolly? Hardly! I don’t recall Dolly Parton ever expressing upset at two men kissing on screen, even if she had a prior connection with one of them.
Bassey on “Sunday Bloody Sunday”: “I saw it, and oh, I couldn’t bear it – probably a personal thing, though. One of the principals, Peter Finch, is a very good friend of mine. In fact, we were lovers, and when he kissed that boy, it destroyed me. It spoiled the whole film for me.”
And you don’t think that’s down to the fact that (as she states herself) the two were lovers, and she didn’t like her boyfriend kissing someone, anyone else, rather than just because it was two guys?
Honestly, some people are just determined to see homophobia everywhere they look.
