Liza Minnelli Doesn’t Understand Her Appeal To The Gays

“I don’t know what gay people see in my music,” says Liza Minnelli in a new interview. “I really haven’t thought about it. I think they see what everyone else sees in my music.” Okay Liza, I’ll tell you: your mother. And: ourselves.

      Well I don’t know what she sees in gay men either…but she sure as hell keeps on marrying them!

      Hmm, that came out wrong. I know what I see in gay men, just not sure what SHE gets out of them.

      Don’t forget her father, Vincente, made the most gorgeous, flamboyant, emotionally intense musicals, comedies, and melodramas in classic era Hollywood.

      Liza is charming, funny, down-to-earth, and talented, very, very talented. Like her parents. She’s a fighter and a survivor and made it through a whole lot of shit. Of course gay men can relate to her!

      I don’t see why gay men are attracted to her music either.

      I like Cabaret, but honestly, I never understood the big deal about Liza. She’s always seemed a little off to me, and watching her kiss the last gay…, er, I mean guy she married, made me want to gauge my eyes out.

      JUDY! JUDY! JUDY! Does she not know the death of her own mother sparked the Stonewall riots? She is a dingy ditz.

      Have we sunk to this? Liza and gay is like Coke and bourbon. To even hint that she is not gay-friendly (actually, gay-riffic) is just idiocy.

      I’m over Queerty idiocy, and judging by traffic, so are a lot of other people.

      @TiredOldQueen@Queerty: there is over a thousand views of just this one thread. 10 comments only but i attribute that to all the fragility that gay people have inside themselves. They are reading the stories even if they are not commenting.

      Beyond music, has Liza really thought about much of anything over the years?

      I’ll tell you what I see…

      I saw Liza in concert several years back. She’s not the best singer in the world. Nor is the the best dancer. But, like her mother, she has the ability to grab the attention of an audience and hold it for an hour and a half. She also can sing a relatively corny song and somehow make it poignant through nothing more than sheer interpretation. That’s a real skill, and a rare one.

      I’m not a huge Liza groupie by any means, but I recognize talent when I see it.

      I can’t relate to the type of music Liza usually sings since I have a Broadway allergy. But I always thought she seems to be a nice, witty, interesting person.
      I do own one of her singles she did with the Pet Shop Boys – she does have a good, strong voice. But her appearance in SATC 2 wasn’t a good choice. Why do some of the artists who are identified with their alllegedly wide support in the gay community have to pander to that image of flamboyance all the time? It’s like “Look, I’m wrapped in a rainbow flag!” Cyndi Lauper comes to mind as well. I wish our supposed heroes and heroines were a little less freakish and eager to please “the Gays” all the time. At least Streisand is a bit less camp these days, except for her poodle fetish of course.
