If you already knew that red-neck poster boy Kid Rock is an ordained minister, it’s probably no surprise to learn that he isn’t looking forward to officiating same-sex marriages.
They still go together like rama lama lama… well, you probably know the rest. Beloved entertainer Olivia Newton-John, whose residency at Las Vegas’ Flamingo Hilton is a big hit, got a visit from Grease costar Didi Conn and the two performed a rendition of “Summer Nights.”
Dangerous Minds, one of our favorite sites, unearthed this fascinating 1975 interview with Tim Curry, who reveals he tried to make his Frank N. Furter character more evil for the film The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Pedro Almodóvar is without a doubt one of the most brilliantly unique filmmakers of all time, but it’s probably best that he turned down the opportunity to direct Brokeback Mountain. The man who gave us Law of Desire and All About My Mother says he was offered the project but found it too “physical.”
Let’s all cross our fingers that Benedict Cumberbatch wins the Oscar for his excellent performance as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game if only so he can continue to give entertaining acceptance speeches like this one from the Palm Springs in which he again salutes the greatness of the late war hero.
If you’ve been wondering whether Lifetime’s upcoming bio of Whitney Houston (airing January 17) will depict facets of her alleged romantic relationship with longtime gal pal Robyn Crawford, Michael Musto reveals that you have to watch carefully for the subtext, such as actress Yolanda Ross as Crawford wearing “a mannish suit” and being “touchy-huggy” with costar Yaya DaCosta, who plays the late icon.
Who knew Turkey had its own version of flamboyant entertainer Liberace? Late singer Zeki Muren sported women’s clothing, outrageous makeup and was held up as a gay icon and is the subject of “Here I am, Zeki Muren,” an exhibit in Istanbul through January 15.
Why is this happening to us?? Typically-hirsute and tan Bradley Cooper, who’s currently starring in American Sniper on movie screens and The Elephant Man on Broadway, appears pale and completely smooth for a Fellini-meets-Hockney-inspired photo shoot for W magazine. Please let this be a bad dream.
I’m pretty sure that Tim Curry’s interview was readily available on youtube a year or so ago if you searched Tim Curry on youtube. I took Curry’s view of the Frank n Further as typical for an actor who performed the character every night in the theater before then appearing in the movie. Since Rocky Horror was a play in London (with Curry) before the movie, maybe Barry Bostwick and Meatloaf weren’t with the characters long enough to get exhausted with them. I haven’t seen Susan Sarandon do any Rocky Horror interviews.
The big “error” I see for Tim Curry is that he didn’t try (hard enough) to become a singer / rock star. He would have made a better looking Freddie Mercury.
And of all the fucking people to interview a cast member of a biopic about Whitney Houston? Why Musto?
Shame those non-conforming femmes and Bradley Cooper, Queerty! Because we all know being a MAN means hair plus penis. That’s all that matters.
Not even trying to be sour, but does anyone really give a wet shart in the underwear what Kid Rock thinks? He’s a crap musician who had to rely on Lynrd Skynrd and Metallica samples for two of his biggest hits and have you ever actually heard him being interviewed? He never fails to come off either stoned or dumb as a post. Basically it’s a desperate attempt to get a share of the Ted Nugent toothless redneck demographic.
am guessing that bradley cooper’s main reason for shaving and losing muscle was for the elephant man. hard to portray pathos looking like a sex symbol…
@JaredNorthcutt30: Right?! The Queerty team seems to be made up of a team of shaving haters. Some of us are NOT FANS OF BODY HAIR. Nothing worse for me them meeting a man and it looks like he’s smuggling kittens under his arms. I like my MEN (not boys because that’s the usual argument peeps shoot back with) well manscaped is my preference, stop with the shaming.
I think Bradley Cooper looks better WITH hair. MUCH MUCH better.
No, actually the issue is, why does the media typically demand that people so completely alter their looks. You don’t get to complain that somebody is anti-shaving when every single style and fashion magazine out there demands complete hairlessness from every single male in their pages.
But keep on playing the victim as if you are so oppressed because you want to wax yourself down like a Jersey Shore wanabee, it’s funny.
Why would Queerty be complaining about BC as hairless? That’s all Quessrty shows in it’s go-go boys posted daily.
More wax than all the candle makers in FRANISTAN!
Yes, yes, Benedict Cumberbatch does wonderful acceptance speeches – and ever so ‘umble. The problem is he’s participated in trashing Alan Turing’s reputation by turning him into the kind of idiot savant role that gets critics salivating and wins awards. In reality, Turing was not the socially inept, arrogant, self-absorbed, angst-ridden mess Cumberbatch plays, but a charming, open, friendly and witty man – as all those who actually knew him attest. Moreover, Turing was never implicated in any kind of espionage, as the film sort of implies; in fact, he never met the Bletchley spy depicted in the movie. So in two quite important ways The Imitation Game seriously slanders Turing. But, hey, hurrah Benedict Cumberbatch. Why would you let the facts or a man’s reputation get in the way of your bid for Oscar?

I thought Cumberbatch’s performance turned Alan Turing into an Asperger’s Syndrome sufferer which is very possibly the case. However that provided a framework for his performance which IMHO was not up to the standard set by Eddie Redmayne in The Theory Of Everything.
@Alan down in Florida:
I think the movie Tropic Thunder explained it, if you play somebody who isn’t normal the critics and the academy love it. Playing Turing as he really was isn’t going to bring him any awards.
Bradley Cooper can’t act his way out of a paper bag, and it’s not surprising he shaves/waxes his body hair.
