What a Week It Has Been.
First this from over the pond:
Michael: 'I'm Not Afraid Of Gay Cruising'(Soundbuzz, Thursday July 27, 12:00 PM)
George Michael is not ashamed of being spotted prowling a notorious homosexual pick-up spot in London last week, insisting he's still a role model for young gays.
The singer was exposed by a British newspaper last Sunday cavorting in the shadows on Hampstead Heath with 58-year-old Norman Kirtland, before he fled from reporters and photographers. But the former Wham! heart-throb refuses to apologise for his actions, stressing he's done nothing wrong by cruising. He says, "I should be able to be what I am to young gay people - which is a man who has managed to succeed in the industry for 25 years. Sorry if people don't like the fact I cruise on Hampstead Heath but the police absolutely accept that it goes on at night. It's the only place in London where that is the case so it's generally a safe place." (wenn)
What shocks me about this is that George prefers older guys, supposedly. I took him for a twink admirer.
Then there was the Lance Bass admission that "surprise", he's gay.
The last time I saw Lance was on Game Show Marathon, and even for Lance, he was acting strange, showing his homeboy contingent of guys with "College" tshirts in his rooting section.
Anyway, if this was some kind of symbolism, then Lance was taking protracted steps in the process. I just wish he would have kissed Reichen after one of his wins, and that would have settled that.
I didn't notice Reichen there, but with his shirt on, he blends in with the crowd.
Anyway, I, for one, am giving the happy couple big hairy muscle hugs of congratulations. Hoping they stay together. Remember this isn't the first relationship/marriage for Reichen. He was "married" to Chip, his partner on Amazing Race, but dumped him shortly after they won and splitted the $1 million prize money.
I hope you guys are finding ways to cool off. I am still chilling with my favorite sno-cone flavor.
There is just something about blue raspberry ice as it dribbles down a furry guys chest. WOOF.
