9 totally believable scandals that will blow your mind

The truth is stranger than fiction these days — the last year has proven as much. So at the rate things are going, would you really be all that surprised if, say, the White House was compromised by Scientologists planning to use our nukes to clear the Thetans? OK, so maybe these fictitious scandals are a little farfetched, but we’ll keep an eye out for developments in any case. Who knows? Maybe your unhinged uncle will be ranting about one of these stories next Thanksgiving. Talk about suspense.

Opera Review: “Rusalka”

To make a longish story short, Rusalka is a tragic operatic Czech variation on The Little Mermaid. It also takes elements of the older fairy tale novella Undine (and all three have roots in the medieval legend of Melusine). There’s also a strong musical influence from Wagner here too – and not just musical: The opera opens with a trio of water spirits teasing a gnomish creature, exactly the same opening as Wagner’s Das Rheingold. It is also very Czech. While Little Mermaid and Undine are obvious influences, the libretto takes much more directly from the fairy tales of Czech authors Karel Jaromír Erben and Božena Němcová. As with all of the works of the opera’s composer Antonín Dvořák, Rusalka draws directly on Czech...

Hilarious Kellyanne Conway “buy Ivanka’s stuff” memes are blowing up the Internet

Professional liar Kellyanne Conway stepped in it this week when she went on Fox & Friends to encourage Americans to buy Ivanka Trump’s crappy clothes made by poor factory workers in third world countries after Nordstrom announced it would no longer be carrying the First Daughter’s products. “It’s a wonderful line,” Conway touted. “I own some of it. I fully–I’m going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today, everybody! You can find it online!” Related: Kellyanne Conway goes on TV to encourage people to “buy Ivanka’s stuff!” On Thursday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz called Conway’s actions “unacceptable” and said he was referring her for an ethics investigation to see whether she broke the law...

Cabaret Review: Marcos Valle and Celso Fonseca

I like bossa nova singer / songwriter and all around luminary Marcos Valle because he combines a strong sense of syncopation and groove with a rich and vibrant harmonic palette – these things will get my attention anytime. Add to that a sunny disposition and sensibility best expressed by his signature song “Summer Samba (So Nice)” (made famous by Astrud Gilberto), and I’m in musical love. In his current club act at Birdland, Valle is backed by a trio of musicians whose precision and energy border on the supernatural. When they lock into the groove that Valle is playing on the keyboard – which is most of the time – the room positively levitates with musical excitement in its most direct form. The effect is so dynamic...

OMG, it’s called Fashion. Look it up: Andrew Coimbra SS17 campaign

When creating his Spring/Summer 2017 collection, designer Andrew Coimbra had thoughts of immigration and assimilation on the brain. How do we reconcile the two, especially now, in the era of Trump, Brexit, and other unmentionables? A child of immigrant parents, Coimbra explored these ideas by remixing national signifiers (the American and Canadian flags depicted as mosaics of Mediterranean floral tiles), and by blowing up and branding Portuguese slang (Sacana, which means rascal or bastard). Check out our favorite pieces from the collection, which you can buy now: the champagne bomber, flag T-shirts and Sacana pullover. View the Andrew Coimbra Spring/Summer 2017 campaign images after the jump along with a short atmospheric video.

8 times Jeff Sessions looked legitimately terrified during his swearing in as Attorney General

In his now-trademark alternate reality doom/gloom fashion, President Trump swore in racist and homophobic Jeff Sessions as our nation’s 84th Attorney General, referencing a dark version of the U.S., with Sessions as its savior of justice. And judging by the looks Sessions was giving the President and the audience present at the event, we’re going to go out on a limb and say that if you’d asked him five years ago if he’d ever be the U.S. Attorney General, he’d say no. As LGBTQ Nation reports: His record on civil rights prompted Cory Booker (D, NJ) to become the first sitting Senator in history to testify against a fellow Senator in a nomination hearing. Sessions also has a...

Theatre Review: “The Encounter”

Theatrical maverick Simon McBurney turns in a performance that has been stunningly filtered and processed, in service of telling a story on the theme of getting past all filters and processing. The story he tells follows Loren McIntyre, a National Geographic photographer, as he “goes native” in 1969 among the remote Mayoruna people of Brazil. The Encounter was inspired by Amazon Beaming, a 1991 account of the trip as told to McIntyre’s friend Petru Popescu. McIntyre didn’t speak the Mayorunan language, but somehow learned to communicate with an elder of the tribe through the mysterious “beaming” in the title of Popescu’s book. Every audience member has a hi-fi headset which allows McBurney to speak more intimately to the audience, manipulate his voice electronically, and paint...

OMG, Keith Haring Is “The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing” in new children’s book

Keith Haring‘s tribal scribbles were some of the most iconic of the the 1980s, – art which was revelled by both graffiti community, pop stars, as well as museums worldwide. Haring died of AIDS-related complications in 1990 but his younger sister, Kay, has gone about telling her brother’s story in a new children’s book titled: Keith Haring: The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing. “My book tells the story of how Keith kept drawing, no matter who questioned what he was doing or why,” she told The Huffington Post. “I hope the passion he had as an artist is apparent to the kids who read it. I also want to highlight his philanthropy and hope that it inspires children to give back in their own community...

Teen’s antigay rant shows the bigotry LGBTQ youth face every day

A Queerty reader has directed us to a video of a teen expressing his severe homophobia, and we feel it deserves to be seen. We must warn you that he uses highly offensive language, and if you’re sensitive to hate speech, you may want to move on. While antigay hostility on high school campuses (or anywhere else for that matter) is by no means a recent phenomenon, the willingness of bigots to wear their ignorance on their sleeves has become noticeably more pronounced in our recent sociopolitical atmosphere. Permission for bullying has been given by example at the highest levels of our government, and that attitude trickles down to America’s youth, who look to adults to develop a sense of what is right or wrong...

Theatre Review: “Stuffed”

Fat, feminist, funny. In comedian Lisa Lampanelli’s first play Stuffed, it’s that last word that’s key. I’ve worked in feminist theatres, I’ve written for gay publications for a long time, so I can confirm that, just as the title of Susie Orbach’s 1978 landmark book says, Fat Is A Feminist Issue. I’ve seen and worked on many shows that address how fat-shaming is used to oppress women, and how women negotiate their relationships with food and weight. Of all of them, Stuffed is far and away the funniest treatment of this important issue that I’ve ever seen, and that’s a very good thing. Right from the beginning, director Jackson Gay’s staging lets us know that this is...

Women would be severely affected by repeal of Affordable Care Act

WASHINGTON (AP) — From a return to higher premiums for women to gaps in coverage for birth control and breast pumps, the Republican push to repeal the Obama-era health care law already is raising concerns that women could be hit hard. The 2010 law ended a common industry practice of charging women more than men […]

Cabaret Review: KT Sullivan and Mark Nadler

Many years ago, Soprano KT Sullivan and pianist/entertainer extraordinaire Mark Nadler starred in a very smart revue of Gershwin songs called American Rhapsody. The two of them packed a cabaret stage with more talent than many a Broadway musical, and the show ran for nine months. Now, all these years later, they’re doing an entirely new show – their first new one together since 2010 – devoted to the lyrics of Alan Jay Lerner, titled Almost Like Being in Love. It’s every bit as engaging as American Rhapsody. Nadler is the showier of the two talents: At one point during American Rhapsody he leapt from floor to piano bench, tap-dancing madly, singing and keeping steady eye contact with the audience – all this while playing a...

LGBTQ youth summit shut down to avoid clash with Trump

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reportedly shelved plans for an upcoming LGBTQ youth summit, worried how President Trump and his administration would react to the event. An anonymous source tells Talking Points Memo it was “supposed to be a big deal. They had a whole communications team on it, it was going to be on Facebook live. The intention was to plan a 5-year agenda.” Internal department memos obtained by TPM reference a day’s worth of planned events, during which “national leaders” would convene at the CDC’s Roybal campus in Atlanta, GA “to address the health and well-being of LGBTQ youth.” According to the source, initial planning for the event began last September, with weekly planning sessions...

Opera Review: “L’Italiana in Algeri”

A fun time is had by all. Sure, Rossini’s comedy L’Italiana in Algeri is an exercise in orientalism. But it’s a relatively innocuous one. Little is made of the “Turkishness” of the setting (Algeria was under the control of the Ottoman Turks in 1813 when Rossini wrote the opera). Instead, Turkish potentate Mustafa is simply an ancient comic type, the “braggart soldier,” who happens to be wearing a fez. As a matter of fact, the tension of the “exotic” setting gives L’Italiana a bite that most frothy bel canto comedy doesn’t have. The plot is, typically, thin: feisty Italian girl Isabella (Marianna Pizzolato, in a charmingly funny Met debut.) turns the tables on the blustery but bumbling Mustafa (the delirously hammy...

OMG, it’s called Fashion. Look it up: Rick Owens FW17 men’s collection ‘Glitter’

S-I-L-H-O-U-E-T-T-E!! Rick Owens exploded and contorted the idea of an outfit every which way he could for his Fall/Winter 2017 men’s collection, dubbed “Glitter.” Puffer elements, extra-long sleeves, shiny treated leather, giant pantlegs, and sideways jackets were shown in quick succession with criss-crossing choreography. The feeling was monumental and sculptural, slightly scary but serene. Watch the video below and see our picks from the collection after the jump. (Image Source) The post OMG, it’s called Fashion.
