AND WITH SONG TITLES LIKE "PROMISCUOUS" AND "MANEATER",
SHE'S ALREADY EMBRACING HER INNER BISEXUAL STEREOTYPE
singer Nelly Furtado--who broke out in 2000 with hit singles
"I'm Like a Bird" and "Turn Out the Light",
and whose new album, Loose, has already produced
the hit singles "Promiscuous" and "Maneater"--was
by Genre magazine if she was attracted to women, to which
she gave this response:
Women are beautiful and sexy. It is interesting, because
I’m reading a book about Chinese medicine, which claims
that people are inherently bisexual to balance their energies.
And, in a way, that makes so much sense. As humans we have
both male and female energies. I believe in Kurt Cobain’s
statement that, in the end, everyone is gay. Everybody should
have the freedom to experiment. I believe sexual experimentation
is part of human history."
always nice to see more women publicly embracing bisexuality,
and I think Nelly Furtado is actually kinda cool, but forgive
me if I'm a little skeptical of what appears to be yet
another celebrity waxing on about how she's attracted
to women, while never actually dating them. I can elaborate
on the wonders of beets and lima beans, but that doesn't make
me a vegetarian, now does it?
AND GAYLE: SITTING IN A TREE, NOT K-I-S-S-I-N-G
rumors have long dogged Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King, who
have been friends for 30 years, talk four times a day, and
frequently travel together. The two friends finally decided
to address the issue head on in a conversation
written up in the August issue of Oprah's magazine O.
understand why people think we're gay", said Oprah. "There
isn't a definition in our culture for this kind of bond between
women. So I get why people have to label it--how can you be
this close without it being sexual?" Gayle, who is divorced,
said the rumors used to bother her, because "it's hard
enough to get a date on Saturday night", but she doesn't
care anymore. "If we were gay, we would tell you",
said Gayle, "because there's nothing wrong with being
agreed, saying: "People think I'd be so ashamed of being
gay that I wouldn't admit it? Oh, please."
Gayle said, "if Oprah was a man, I'd marry her".
But Oprah was like, "Um, no offense, but if I was a man,
I'd marry Halle Barry" and Gayle goes, "Who wouldn't?
She's hot! I wouldn't kick her out of bed for making Catwoman"
And then Oprah was like, "What about Marg Helgenberger?
She can investigate me anytime!" and Gayle was like...oh,
just read the transcript for yourself here.
SEE BAD BISEXUAL STEREOTYPES
Lifetime debuted Angela's
Eyesthis week, its new crime drama about a young
female FBI agent who can tell when people are lying. No, there
are no actual lesbian or bisexual characters among the cast,
but don't worry, there is a fantastically accurate and original
plot involving bisexual women in the pilot.
the setup: a devoted wife and mother goes missing and is assumed
to be dead, and the husband--who recently discovered he has
a grown daughter he never knew about--is the chief suspect.
Turns out, the wife/mother left her husband and young son
to run off with the long-lost daughter, who--you guessed it--was
never his daughter at all, but the wife's lover. It was all
an elaborate scam cooked up by the women to bilk the husband
of his money.
women willing to deceive, betray, and abandon those who
love them? Sounds about par for the TV course. Frankly,
it's amazing bisexual women can even hold down jobs, with
all the time they spend abandoning their children and
scamming straight men. When they're not killing them or
having threesomes, that is.
DELIVERS? On this Sunday's episode of the HBO Old West
"Unauthorized Cinnamon", there's finally going
to be some intimacy between foul-mouthed horsewoman Calamity
Jane (Robin Weigert) and the town madame, Joanie Stubbs
(Kim Dickens). The series has hinted at Joanie's alternative
sexuality in the past, and now that Deadwood
has been canceled, perhaps the writers plan to develop
this side of her more. That's still not enough to get
me to watch the show, but one TV viewer's dust bowl of
violence and poor hygiene is another viewer's treasure!
