IMAGINARY DIARIES OF A POP ARTIST: BEST EVER

Nov 29 2007

«Gee, I really love cosmetics stuff. How can we ever get enough of it? Went to the drugstore and there was this new skin care product for «all ages and all ethnic groups». So there was this old lady at the counter telling me this was the best product ever because it could be used by black, asian, white and latino women. But then some japanese artsy looking girl came and said asian was not an ethnic group but a racial one and asked if they were going to launch a new line for japanese skin, vietnamese skin, chinese skin, korean skin and so on. Then the old lady got mad and left..Oh, I don't understand it. Should I buy a face cream for «white american guy», «white american gay guy», or «white catholic guy»? They say Obama is gaining on Hillary now. Maybe she should have an Hillary Guy rooting for her on YOU TUBE.

«ATHLETES ARE GOING TO BE THE NEW MEDIA STARS»-ANDY WARHOL

WARHOLIAN QUOTE OF THE DAY

«Fame might be the best aphrodisiac but I wasn't famous enough to excite anyone except the rare individual. Where I was younger and less celebrated I had more success. Youth boosts the appeal of even quite mediocre fame. In any event it's women who are more susceptible to the lure of power and money. Men like youth and beauty. Straight men might envy or compete with male sucesss but gay men seek out trophy boys».

IMAGINARY DIARIES OF A POP ARTIST: HULK HOGAN

27 nov 2007

Gee, everyone is talking about Hulk Hogan's wife filing for divorce. The paper says she's obsessed about getting new houses all the time. I like all those stories of divorce about the rich & famous. But I don't understand it. So I was very happy when that Dallas billionaire explained it to me the other day. He said basically everybody pretend to get married for love but it's always all fake. Women marry men because they got money & power and men marry women because they got a 22 year body and a tight pussy. But over time the problems are sure to happen because he gets MORE AND MORE of what she married him for and she gets LESS & LESS of what he married her for. So you always have those stories where they say the guy cheated on his wife while she's the one who actually broke the rule of the contract by getting older. He's right.

ANDY WOULD BE HAPPY

«Of more than 30 global art experts surveyed by the prestigious American magazine ARTnews to celebrate its 105 birthday not a single one picked (Damien) Hirst as an artist who would remain famous in the next century...Andy Warhol is the clear winner. Robert Storr the dean of the Yale School of Art who curated this year's Venice Bienale-where Emin represented Britain-said Warhol and John Cage «upset the applecart of certainties and beliefs that had driven art for a hundred years. Warhol took the mediating qualities of television, film and so on and examined how they filter out the intensity from content»

IMAGINARY DIARIES OF A POP ARTIST: TOM CRUISE


Nov 23 2007

Gee, Eric Clapton said yesterday in the paper he didn't have sex sober before he was in his 30's. I don't understand. What's the difference between sober and non sober sex? Does it mean better sex if you don't remember it the day after but do remember it a month later or better sex when you don't remember it the day AND the month after? And oh, they say a new book will definitely prove Tom Cruise is not gay. They say it will stop all the rumors about him. Do they really needed a book for that? I mean how many fairies talk about Scientology and fall for someone with a girl next door look instead of one looking like a bitchy vamp? I guess Perez Hilton will continue to draw cocks around his mouth anyway.

One kid told me he used to stop at McDonald's all the time but now he goes at Burger King because they have those huge sculptures of burger and fries on the wall. He said it's artsy à la Claes Oldenberg. I guess he just want to impress some girl with that.

IMAGINARY DIARIES OF A POP ARTIST: BRITNEY GOT A NEW MAN!

Nov 21 2007

Gee, Life & Style magazine says Britney got a new man. It's not going to last. He's a waiter and he doesn't look pussy whipped enough. She needs to continue to be a train wreck and that serial dating thing. She's too good for the economy now. And oh everybody is worrried about the art market. They say it will be the next thing to be affected after the subprime crisis. But I don't understand why they worry so much. I mean they just have to keep the competition between jewish men as strong as it is so the market won't crash if new Chinese and Indian investors stop buying. Watched that Australian Justin Timberlake interview on YOU TUBE. And when the guy asked him why does he use the Internet for Justin said jockingly: «porn». I guess all the celebrity magazines are fighting each other right now to see who's going to come up with the best future cover. They should really invent some good fake storyline. Like: «Jessica mad at Justin Internet porn habits». It would sell like hot cakes with teenage girls. Some french art critic came to the office. He said he really liked my «fast food art».

«The strange thing about my utter lack of education in management was it didn't seem to matter. As a principal and founding partner of a consulting firm that eventually grew to 600 employees, I interviewed, hired and worked alongside hundreds of business schools graduates and the impression I formed of the MBA experience was that it involved taking two years out of your life and going deeply into debt all for the sake of learning how to keep a straight face while using phrases like «out of the box thinking», «win-win situation» and core competencies. When it come to picking teammmates I generally held out higher hopes for those individuals who had used their university years to learn about something other than business administration»

Gee, Obama said he got into drinking in the past and experimented with drugs. Why do they always say that to students? They should do it when talking to ex 60's hippies only. Did they asked him if he was wearing boxers or briefs? I guess soon they're going to ask political candidates if they ever had a same sex relationship during college and woman candidates if they swallow or not. I've been asked to do a poster for the democratic party again. I don't know. I never voted since the sixties and I'm selling more to rich bored Republicans ladies than democrats ones so..Watched the «strange I've seen that face before» Grace Jones video on You Tube and it made me feel so nostalgic. Grace could really have been a great star but I guess she was just too weird for mainstream america. Saw her downtown the other day. She still looks good though.

IMAGINARY DIARIES OF A POP ARTIST: LINSAY LOHAN VS BRITNEY SPEARS

Nov 20 2007

Read the latest issue of Life & Style Weekly. This is really my favorite magazine now. They say Britney is addicted to plastic surgery. I like the way magazines always write that when a female star is single she has no choice but to become addicted to plastic surgery. And oh all the kids at the office just hate Lindsay Lohan. They say she has no talent. But I don't get it. I mean talent is not that important now. Lohan just doesn't have any gay appeal and Britney has plenty of it. I like Lindsay Lohan though. It's like Eddie Sedgwick in the sixties. Famous for absolutely nothing. That's great. They should really do a sex tape together. All the Louisiana conservatives men blasting Hollywood Liberals would be turned on by that and then all the celebrity magazines could write: Lohan: «Frustrated Britney turned me into a man hating head shaved raging dyke!»

But the best was a cute marketing executive. He looked like a fairy. He said the real scandal about the past Janet Jackson's exposed tit at the Superbowl was not the nudity but the fact there was no advertising on the tit. He's right.

The return on investment for attending one of the nation's 25 or so more selective colleges is far more impressive. Money well spent right? Well not necessarely. Although there is clearly a correlation between earnings and a four year degree a correlation isn't the same thing as a cause. Economists like Robert Reischauer ruffled feathers several years ago by pointing out that talented driven people kids are more likely to go to college in the first place- that they succeed in other words because of their innate abilities not because of their formal education».

I guess we really live in a teenage girl culture now. A kid at the office told me that a 30 year old gay man and a 12 year old girl really think alike. I don't know. Does it mean it's good for the 30 year old gay man or the 12 year old girl? Now stars are really smarter. They sell their baby pictures before the paparazzi took some pictures of their own. But I don't understand why they're not doing even better. I mean they could sell pictures of their baby in the wombs. And then they would go on some talk show and say: I just sold some pictures of my developing fetus and everybody would applaud. Or they would go to some stores with hand signed pics of their six weeks old fetus and they're would be riots of women in Detroit and Cleveland trying to be the first to buy them. That would be a great american invention. Went to the office. Worked on my new Hollywood stars favorite exotic animals serie.

Some kid have me watching some porn with him. And there's was really a great line in the movie. There was this ex female exotic dancer who married a rich guy but she's still having sex with many people because she could only get excited when having a new partner each time.

But I guess people are right when they say the next big artist won't work factory style and will just hate being a public celebrity. I mean Pop Art became big because Roy, Bob, Jasper and me were the total opposite of what was going on at the time with Abstract Expressionism. Oh I just hated that so much. So I guess the next big artist will be totally fed up with me, Koons and Hirst. (laughs). That's great. Perez Hilton came to the office and I took some good pics for his portrait.

You would have some actress explaining that she didn't really cheated on her boyfriend when she sucked off her new male co-star because «oral sex doesn't really count as sex».

«MUSCLES ARE GREAT;EVERYBODY SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE THAT THEY CAN SHOW OFF»-ANDY WARHOL

SOMETHING ANDY WARHOL WOULD HAVE LIKED

Remember when Elton John and the Pet Shop Boys had to defend Eminem from GLADD? Well it seems a lot happened since then. Namely more and more gay rapper boys and girls taking their place within the larger hip hop community. To get the pulse of that growing scene I asked some questions to the guys involved in the documentary film Pick Up The Mic. From the state of gay hip hop today, gay men's love -hate relationship with the genre to the future of gay Hip Hop porn...



Q- It seems Hip Hop is moving in so many directions now and influences so many other musical genres. Do you see the same trend in gay hip hop as well?

A- «Definitely» say Pick Up The Mic filmmaker Alex Hinton. «The film really showcases a wide array of styles from the roots and soul inspired leanings of Deep Dickollective to the gangsta styles of JenRo and the HIP HOP with pop hooks of God-Des to the raunchy but hilarious styling of Jonny Dangerous. There is something for every Hip Hop fan in this scene".

Over the years there have been a lot of talk about the place of gay artists in the larger hip hop community. The rapidity of that progress may been seen differently by some but there's clearly a trend towards growing acceptance. «I personally have found that much of the black music industry have given me nothing but respect for the amount of success I have achieved, all without any manager or record label behind me» says British rapper QBOY. «Having said that you have to wonder why I don't have either of those two support frames-it's because the music industry as a whole don't know what to do with me. They believe I don't fit their idea or market for hip hop because I'm gay and I don't fit their gay market because I'm hip hop. However attitudes are changing» he adds. For Alex Hinton some progress cannot be denied: «We did get a 4 page spread about the scene in URB magazine a straight urban music and lifestyle mag. And artists like JenRo and Scream Club are working in the straight hip hop scene guesting on tracks and performing confortably well with straight rappers».



What about the other way around now? People always talk about homophobia in the hip hop community but is there also some prejudice towards hip hop among the mainstream gay community? «Well historically the gay community has had a prejudice to hip hop as the homophobic lyrics of some hip hop songs have been magnified by watchdogs groups like GLAAD. Homophobia exists everywhere in the music industry and musical forms. It just seems that hip hop has been targeted as it can be demonized by some as as the other since it is so often showcased as just a hyper masculinized form of music» says Hinton. «But the film really proves witness that many members of the gay community grew up on hip hop and they don't feel that it is this negative force. They feel that it is their true medium to express themselves. »


Go to most gay bars and it won't be often that some shirtless pumped up guy will be dancing on Hip Hop tracks. For one QBOY has a lot to say about the so called mainstream gay culture:«There is a lot of underlying racism in mainstream gay culture, there has not often been much visible black gay men and lesbians with that scene and now the traditional black culture is creating it's own path within the gay community, the mainstream gay scene is having to adjust not all with ease.» Fortunately personal experience often alter that general impression: «There is also something I call rap-phobia where people's idea of what rap is about is associated with guns, drugs, crime, violence, gangsta culture and somebody shouting in an angry intimidating fashion». add QBOY. «This is because the only conception with rap is the mainstream junk that is so accessible to them. However I have found that many people who have seen me perform parents, grand parents, lesbians and gay men in their fifties none of whom have never identified with rap before all come to me at the end and say: you know I never I liked rap but I like you».


In that world of testosterone-charged young male bravado, Miss Money is for many something of an oddity. A gay christian hip hop artist. And as a female she got a somewhat different opinion about all that male swaggering thing and the so called homophobia of Hip Hop : «I don't think there are prejudices but just reaction to the hate spewed at gay people. You'd be prejudiced too if every man with a mic and knowledge of a few vowels said faggot.....The hip hop males are so ever indulged in testosterone they're the first to hate on gay people but anyone with common sense can see it's their own insecurity . It really has nothing do us gay people».



Before sex was used to sell music . Now music is increasingly used to sell sex. Especially to bring the hip hop community to the adult market. We all know that past Snoop's Doggystyle video and today there's clearly a growing foray of Hip Hop into porn. In the past designer Mark Ecko had his clothes used in some xxx movies and nowadays we hear more and more about rappers tempted to act as MC (if not performing themselves) in some xxx skin flick. Are gay rappers going to follow that trend? Is a move into porn going to be the next ultimate street cred statement? « I don't see why not, I can see Jonny [Dangerous) doing it for sure. He He! In fact both myself and Houston Bernard are on the soundtrack to a sexually charged gay film called OPen Cam» (www.opencammovie.com/music.html/) says QBOY.


What is Jonny Dangerous himself thinking of the idea? Not suprisingly the rapper known for his sexually graphic lyrics is quite enthusiastic about it. «You're talking to the king of dirty gay hip hop. I would definitely rock a porn movie and have my shit played on the background...Cuz when you think of dirty gay sex how can you not think of Johnny Dangerous? Just listening to some of his lyrics easily prove his point:

«Laid up on the couch seductively
Hand up on my knee, whispered how much he wanted me
Bitin' on my lip fantasizing 'bout that dick
that he describe to be eight long and five inches thick"
