!! OMG, She Natters: Camille Paglia Goes Gaga !!

camille1.jpg
Everyone’s favorite lezzie crank has something to say about the greatest pop star of our times or whatever. That’s right, cultural theorist, art critic and lesbian lunatic Camille Paglia would like to weigh in on the topic of Our Lady of the Gaga. And predictably, she hates her! (FYI, Camille Paglia only likes vintage Madonna and some Brazilian pop singer named Daniela Mercury?) Writes Camille in a recent profile of Gaga:

…Despite showing acres of pallid flesh in the fetish-bondage garb of urban prostitution, Gaga isn’t sexy at all – she’s like a gangly marionette or plasticised android. How could a figure so calculated and artificial, so clinical and strangely antiseptic, so stripped of genuine eroticism have become the icon of her generation? Can it be that Gaga represents the exhausted end of the sexual revolution? In Gaga’s manic miming of persona after persona, over-conceptualised and claustrophobic, we may have reached the limit of an era…

Compare Gaga’s insipid songs, with their nursery-rhyme nonsense syllables, to the title and hypnotic refrain of the first Madonna song and video to bring her attention on MTV, Burning Up, with its elemental fire imagery and its then-shocking offer of fellatio. In place of Madonna’s valiant life force, what we find in Gaga is a disturbing trend towards mutilation and death…

!! OMG, She’s Ridiculous: Housewife Danielle Staub remixes Real Close !!

 
Okay, I know this is OMG Blog and everything, but it’s pretty rare that I actually exclaim “OMG!” to myself as I’m doing my daily posts. But OMG, you guys, this video is crazy!
Real Houswife of New Jersey and genuine lezzie lunatic Danielle Staub has released a “dance remix” of her Sapphic anthem Real Close. (Because as we all know, releasing dance hits is what Housewives do in this year of 2010!) Here’s Ms. Staub promoting with a tuneless performance and a bevy of extremely enthusiastic male dancers. I am sitting here LOLing alone!

!! OMG, Bigot Special: Queer protesters take Target by storm !!


Now this is my kind of activism! In punishment for Target’s pokerfaced financial support of evil secessionist homophobes, a bunch of wacky queer radicals by the name of Queer Rising rampaged through the cheery red and white superstore handing out cheeky coupons and repeatedly making the following announcement on a secret intercom thingy:

Good afternoon Target shoppers. When shopping at Target, know that your money is fueling hate and discrimination. Today’s bigot special is two ply toilet paper. Because when you’re so full of shit like Target is, you need something to wipe the shame with. Have a great day and thank you for not shopping at Target.

As someone who for years knew the boredom of working at a big corporate retail box, (the Gap!) I can tell you for sure that this was the most fun these Target employees have had in months. I especially enjoy watching the managers get all worked into a dull-eyed lather.
And while the cries of homophobia are in my opinion somewhat overblown– because huge corporations would probably give money to Nazis if they thought it would score them a tax break– I think it’s great anytime any big company gets even the tiniest comeuppance for their shameless manipulation of the political system.
Also this is just funny. So yay!

!! OMG, Hurry Up: California Gay Marriage Now Temporarily Legal! (In a few days.) !!

californiamarriage.jpg
Gay brides in California lace up your Nikes and get ready to race over to the chapel to put a ring on it! Judgey Godmother Vaughn Walker has taken out his sparkly gavel and banged out a big pink DENIAL on the motion to stay his judgment. Which means that starting August 18, you’ll be allowed to get married in California again. Of course, this will probably last all of two seconds before you can’t again, so try to be the first one in line, okay?
