!! OMG, He’s Important: Chaz Bono !!

Every year, the OUT 100 comes out, and every year I’m furious that I’m not on it! DON’T THESE PEOPLE KNOW WHO I AM?
Well, this year the list of the top 100 most important gays in the world as according to Out Magazine is inexplicably high school-themed, and my humiliation continues. I’ve been passed over yet again– this time in favor of Cher’s son, Chaz Bono! You might remember Chaz from such groundbreaking programs as Celebrity Fit Club, in which he tried to lose weight while competing for cash prizes back when he was still known as Cher’s daughter Chastity. (This summer, as I’m sure you know, Chaz announced that he’d begun the process of FTM gender reassignment.)
Chaz has been dubbed by the Out editors as “Most Likely To Reinvent,” which sort of makes no sense cause hasn’t he already reinvented? It’s not much of a prediction! But no matter. Out Editor Aaron Hicklin says of the photo shoot:

Given that Chaz is transitioning, we felt shooting him in a boys
bathroom was a powerful representation of his real identity, albeit with a touch of
humor.

Chaz Bono, we salute you: for your identity as a transperson, your achievements as a contestant on Celebrity Fit Club, and, of course, your important work as Cher’s son.

!! OMG, a Q&A with John Holland of Salem !!

A couple weeks ago we posted a few tracks by Salem, a noise pop band that has been making waves in indie music circles with its druggy, bass-heavy beats, foreboding synths and distorted vocals. In other words, their music sends a sensation up our spines that celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe likes to call “Witch vibes! Witch vibes!”

Formed three years ago in Chicago by John Holland, Heather Marlatt and Jack Donoghue, Salem have released two EPs and a few singles. They’re in the midst of recording a debut LP, but will take a break to play a one-off Halloween gig in Toronto tomorrow night. We rang up Salem’s John Holland in his home base in Interlochen, Michigan to chat about the band, his favorite hip-hop acts and his Halloween costume.
