“I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail. I said to him, ‘Someday when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the fucking deli without hearing or seeing me’.” – Lady Gaga, speaking to …

Sleeveface

Sleeveface is the new slightly creepy internet fad of posing with album covers. Go to the link for a listing by artist. For some reason, there are more David Bowie shots than for any other artist. The second Barry Manilow shot made me laugh.

The Drums – I Felt Stupid

You might remember the short-lived Brooklyn-based band Elkland, who opened for Erasure on their U.S. tour a few years ago.

Free download here. (Via – JMG reader …

HomoQuotable – Ricky Martin

“As a defender of human rights, my goal is to find solutions for the injustices that exist in the world today.

The first new music from Sade in ten years, from the album set for a February release. A slightly less slinky sound than what we’re used to, but I quite like it. (Sade is name of the band and the singer, ya know.)
