Do Gay Men Love, Dislike or Feel Indifferent About Taylor Swift?
Instinct Staff | November 12, 2017

Gay men have had their share of female icons in their lives over the course of the past fifty years. Names that come to mind include Barbra Streisand, Cher, Madonna, Bette Midler and more. For my generation, the debate for many years was who did we like more: Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera?

Although those are all still legendary names in the music business, the past couple of years has seen the rise of men in the industry dominating the charts after women like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and more were the ones at the top. Taylor Swift, however,has once again become the diva of the moment and catapulted herself back into the pop stratosphere due to the release of her album Reputation, which is already on track to selling well over a million copies in its first week of release.

Pink is not shy to admit that she and fellow singer Christina Aguilera have had their problems — so much so that they almost came to blows.

The pop star, 38, told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that while the two have made amends since their feud in the early 2000s, their relationship was very rocky.

“We were super young and super new at the whole thing, and I think I’m an alpha, and she’s an alpha,” Pink said of their feud during the “Plead the Fifth” segment. Read More

(When you were growing up, did you ever steal anything?) “I had no money. I had absolutely nothing. I got a quarter a week for allowance.

(When you were growing up, did you ever steal anything?) “I had no money. I had absolutely nothing. I got a quarter a week for allowance. What are you going to do with a quarter a week? So, my girlfriend said, “This is what I do.” So I said I’d do it with her. But I didn’t really like it. It was too terrifying. It hurt my nerves. I stopped, and I’ve never stolen anything since. I would never, ever think of it. After my girlfriend and I took this makeup–lipsticks and hair dye–from the mall, we were on our way home with our little bags. It was pouring rain, we were in the middle of a hurricane, and my girlfriend and I got down on our knees and said, “God, if you don’t kill us in this hurricane we swear we will never do this again.” We didn’t die, and we never did it again. I keep my vows.” (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler Read More

BetteBack October 1, 1973: Flashy, Trashy and Infectious Miss M.

San Mateo Times
October 1, 1973

2016-08-26_6-36-55

In this crazy rock ‘n roll world where superstars streak into prominence with the alacrity of unnatural phenomena and instantly develop a cult following that worships with unquestioning fervor, Bette Midler is being acclaimed the High Priestess of Camp.

She makes the kookiness of early career Barbra Streisand look pristine, the grossness and vulgarity of Belle Earth and Sophie Tucker seem tame and the frenzied on-stage antics of Janis Joplin and Jerry Lewis appear understated. It was only her third appearance in the Bay Area and her four night stint at Berkeley Community Theater was a solid sellout. Read More

Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry, Garth Brooks, and more of the music’s biggest names want to make it harder to pirate music online. The musicians are asking lawmakers to make “drastic reforms” to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act — a law that governs intellectual property on the Internet.

Music industry insiders — including Aguilera, Perry, Brooks, CeeLo Green, Steven Tyler, deadmau5, Lionel Richie, Tony Bennett, Pearl Jam, Bette Midler, and dozens more — have filed petitions to the U.S. Copyright Office detailing their struggles with the “antiquated policies” and demanding reform to better “protect the future of the music industry, recording artists and songwriters,” according to a statement from the RIAA.

Fifteen Movies for People Who Hate Valentine’s Day

Time Magazine
15 Movies for People Who Hate Valentine’s Day
Eliza Berman @lizabeaner Feb. 12, 2016

This year, Valentine’s Day is for haters

Valentine’s Day is as apt to dredge up feelings of bitterness and contempt as it is to inspire warmth and love. For every teddy bear clutching a heart-shaped box of chocolates, there is a cynic clutching a bottle of wine, for every dozen roses, a dozen haters who decry the holiday as a sham built on maudlin Hallmark clichés. It’s no coincidence that the new comedy How to Be Single lands in theaters smack-dab in the middle of February, joining a crop of other movies that—contrary to the suggestion of Netflix queues rife with romance—focus on friendship, empowerment in the absence of a partner and the kind of fun that just can’t be had while weighed down with a ball and chain.
