Sing-song of the month: September

Just don't sing 'First Time...'

It might not even have been released but no one was sing-songing anything other than ‘Bleeding Love’ by the rather lovely Leona Lewis. We met her. She was funny. Enough of this showing off, get over the jumpsy with you… (more…)

In September it was all about…

X marks the... please complete this sentence yourself

The Kylie snor-umentary White Diamonds – no, not the Liz Taylor fragrance, mind you… – to a spellbound nation.

Gone with the Wind, quite a popular film apparently, was – it was announced – to become a West End Musical. Hooray, etc.!

That lovely LeAnn Rimes country singer person answered all your questions. Wasn’t that nice of her? (more…)

In August it was all about…

Oh, the smell of it

Tom Ford, hot designer who wears a rug (he won’t let you touch his head when you kiss him we hear at FIRST HAND) released this ad for his new fragrance. Now, everyone knows he’s of gay, so are we to think this is a drag queen’s hand? Or his mother’s? 

Desperado Housewives decided they needed some proper gays to boost the mood a little. David Beckham and Robbie Williams had been rumoured to play the gays. And ain’t it enough to bust your arse wide open from laughing when straight men pretend to be gay. Even funnier than men in women’s clothing… (more…)

Sing-song of the Month: July

Ella ella ella

There was only one song. And it kept on about someone called Ella. It was ‘Umbrella’ or ‘Umberella’ by Rihanna. And it went something like this (over the jump with you)… (more…)

In July it was all about…

Is that a good arse?

Dame Shirley of Bassey and Clivedon got way down with the kids with her new album and even included the cheeeenius version of Pink’s ‘Get This Party Started’. Still not sure if she’s down with the significance of the line ‘I’m coming up…’ mind.

The Spice Girls conducted a raucous press conference and you half-remembered why you liked them.

We already knew about Kylie in the Christmas spesh of Dr. Who, but in July we found out that Catherine Tate was his new sidekick. How the gays rejoiced!

A bishop blamed gays for the floods in the Midlands. Gays accepted full responsibility.

Having ‘wowed’ the nation on Soapstar Superstar, Sean off-of Corrie (aka actor Anthony Cotton) was given his own talk show. It was what’s known in the business as an unmitigated disaster. And what is that hair?

Kelly Clarkson told us – exclusively, naturellement! – that she was spunking all her ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ cash on sparkly crosses that she hated in the morning.

The Sex and the City movie actually started filming. By now you’ll have seen most of it.

Those Beckhams got all hot and horny inside W magazine, just to let the Americans know that they were coming and could be every bit as skanky as their home-grown skanks.

Groove Armada told us they’d been working with Kylie (when we say ‘working’, they were working, Kylie turned up and swished about a bit and copied someone’s vocals off the demo, no doubt). The track didn’t make the final cut of the X album. Who’s sorry now, Ms K?

Pete Burns (victim) got married to that dolly bloke with dodgy hair. May god have mercy on all their souls.

We toddled along to Mika’s art exhibition. Fine wines were served, Mika came over for a chat and we ended up at bear bar the King’s Arms with Gateau Chocolat and the dolly bears. Oh, and did an exclusive interview that same month. Read it here. Oh, and here.

A show called Clapham Junction about the state of the gay nation in 2007 was shown. It felt like 1984 all over again. But there was knobbage.

The invented a tampon that could wear a skirt.

Darren Hayes answered the questions you so kindly popped deep withinside of him. Oh, and here as well.

It was the best of telly, it was the worst of telly

Ooh, me bonnet

Who knew retrieving lace collars from inside cats and chasing running ladies in sedan chairs could be so much fun? Her Majesty’s BBC did us proud this autumn, bringing Dame Judi, Julia Sawalha (off Ab Fab) and a galaxy of old-lady-actresses-what-we-love to Sunday nights. (more…)

Sing-song of the month: June

'Remember me and you, I do...'

In June, we were mostly sing-songing along to The Hoosiers’ ‘Worried About Ray’, largely because it reminded us so much of ‘Happy Together’ by The Turtles. Here it is after the jump… (more…)

Pitch it to me!

Daniel Craig off-of Bond was still very much in our thoughts. (more…)
