I have a cold, so I stayed home and stuck wads of toilet paper up my nose while Aaron went out into the world, played hockey, saw other people and acted like a functional human being. About an hour into my quarantine, I started to get really bored. I turned to social media for amusement, and then I made some dumb jokes in an effort to get people to pay attention to my sad, sickly ass.
First, I compared Lana Del Rey and her unique(?) stage presence to SCTV’s Perry Como skit. It’s uncanny!
Then I came up with the following equation to explain Madonna’s new video:
One of Sarah’s favourite adventures during TIFF 2011 was interviewing and hanging around with the cast of Leave It On The Floor (she got along with them so fab that they even gave her a nickname, “Sarbear”). The cast were all super-fabulous members of the “ball scene,” a highly theatrical gay performance subculture probably best known as the place Madonna nicked voguing from.
Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Cher, Madonna… they all owe a debt to the ball scene and you can find out why in Sarah’s story about it for Spinner Canada. To read the story, click here.
