RuPaul Nails It On Straight Pop Culture

I often post about how straight pop culture shames or laughs at gay culture. I see it happen almost daily. They don’t always laugh with gay culture. They laugh at it. And that’s the problem. You never see gay people joke around about Jimmy Fallon and that perpetual shit eating grin on his face. God forbid a gay person should do that. But it’s okay for straight pop culture to shame gays.

Well, Ru Paul decided to speak up about it.

‘Regular, straight pop culture has liberally lifted things from gay culture as long as I can remember. And that’s fine, because guess what? We have so much more where that comes from. Take it!’

They talk so much about acceptance now today and it’s like, yes, but trust me — I’m old and I know this shit — it’s superficial. Because as soon as the lights go out, you’ll see how advanced people’s thinking is. This so-called “Will & Grace acceptance” era is just people fucking posing. Things haven’t changed that much. You see it in politics right now — that’s the fucking truth of people. And you know, people will have you think, “Oh, we’re fashion. We’re gay. That’s my gay over there!” It’s like, no. We’re still a very, very, very primitive culture.’

You can read the rest here. RuPaul so freaking nailed this one I don’t have anything else to say.

The Easter Bunny’s Chocolate Penis, and Peep Smut

I remember there used to be a candy store in New York that sold erotic candy. I can’t remember the name and I’m not even sure if it’s still there. But this link reminded me of them.

It’s a web site called Chocolate Fantasies, and it is focused on all kinds of erotic chocolate designs. I wish I could share a photo, but the best I can do it offer the link.  

They have one design with a chocolate Easter Bunny that has a chocolate penis. 

And, there’s a ‘thing’ out there called “Peep Smut,” which I believe is erotic fanfic about Peeps. I can’t go into detail about that here on the blog, but you can check out this short Peep Smut here.

James Franco In Rolling Stone

James Franco is at it again, and this time in an interview with Rolling Stone. It seems that all those gay boy stories about him, and all the appropriation and gay bait articles, actually help him when he’s dating women.

Hollywood heartthrob James Franco has revealed what makes him obsessed with telling gay stories and playing gay roles and how the gay rumors that fly around him as a result are actually helpful when he’s dating women in a long form interview with Rolling Stone magazine.
The interview explores what it calls Franco’s ‘artistic preoccupation’ with homosexuality both in the films he makes himself and the roles he chooses to play in other people’s projects.

The rest of this buttsmoke is here.

It’s also another good example of straight pop culture lifting from gay culture. The good thing is that there are only two comments. I don’t think you could drag me into a James Franco movie again.

Joan Rivers Flips Leno; Beyonce As Marilyn Monroe

Joan Rivers Flips Leno

I think this is pop culture news, and also gay news because like it or not Joan Rivers is an icon to some gay men. But in all seriousness, she’s no fool, she makes most feminists look lazy, and she’s always taken control of her own life and her circumstances. And after years of being banned from the Tonight Show, thanks to the way women are often treated in Hollywood (and the fact that straight white men still control Hollywood), Rivers finally made a return appearance thanks to Jimmy Fallon.

You can watch a clip here where Rivers discusses the Tonight Show appearance and also discusses how she feels about the way she was treated…largely, she believes, because she was a woman. She also flips Jay Leno the bird for banning her from the show.

I used to watch the Tonight Show when I was a kid back when Johnny Carson hosted the show. I vaguely remember Joan Rivers as a guest host. Whatever happened between Rivers and Carson can only be told by Rivers now because Carson never spoke about it in public. In the same respect, Jay Leno never had Joan Rivers back on the tonight show either. The only reason I find that interesting is because I never once watched the Tonight Show after Carson retired. There was just no way I could deal with Leno as Carson’s replacement. I just never got it…or him.

I’m finally watching the Tonight Show again thanks to Jimmy Fallon.

Beyoncé As Marilyn Monroe

Tony and I finally traded in our twelve year old Jag and bought a new car this past January. I loved that Jag. We bought it on the showroom floor twelve years ago and I fought to keep it for the last four years. But it was getting up there and it was time to trade it in for something new. And with the new car I discovered satellite radio for the first time and I can now listen to Ryan Seacrest in the morning. When I heard about Beyoncé channeling Marilyn Monroe on Seacrest’s show this morning I earmarked it for a post because it’s interesting to see Monroe’s legacy alive after all these years. Beyoncé will be on the cover of Out Magazine in May, in full Marilyn drag…and using the exposure as a platform for feminism.

The 32-year-old pop superstar — who poses topless while wearing a platinum wig — channels her inner Marilyn Monroe for a timeless black-and-white photo shoot and talks about her self-titled album and feminism. Although the “Drunk in Love” singer has mastered the art of surprise, it’s no secret that she is an advocate for women’s right, and now she’s using her magazine spread as a platform to once again influence female liberation.

I posted about Beyoncé’s clever marketing ploy last Christmas here. That time it was Beyoncé who flipped the proverbial bird to Amazon.

Amazon and Target refused to sell Beyonce’s new album because she released it on iTunes first, with a one week iTunes exclusive. It’s interesting because the very thing Amazon did to me with the exclusive they require for the lending program is the exact same thing they penalized Beyonce for doing with Apple. Beyonce retaliated by going to a Wal-Mart store this past weekend where she gave 750 shoppers a fifty dollar gift card, an amount that totaled something close to thirty eight thousand dollars.

Amazon clearly survived the gesture.
