Heya Fashion Forward Fumies,
Lady Gaga and Gwyneth Paltrow are about as polar opposite as you can imagine. Back in 2011 they were both on Graham Norton’s couch and the subject of fashion fails creeps up. The very last look of this clip is gold. They are both really charming and I love the way they work together. Comedy comes from such unexpected places.
How would you scent Gwyneth and Gaga? Let’s not say what they do wear but what their personalities match with. I reckon Gwyneth would wear something feminine, overblown and intrusive like Midnight Oud, Ysatis or Songes. Lady Gaga is surprisingly conservative under all that show so maybe something that opens really strong then softens to an elegant wash like Mitsouko, Maai or Jasmine Rouge.
Do please take a moment out of your busy life to enjoy this.

I know that most of you don’t need to see this, or when you see it you will be thinking, “OK I know this stuff”

Having said that I did like the way they deal with some of the issies and Davey Wavey always gives me a smile.
Be careful at work, there is adult content.
Underneath that is the most hilarious parody, watch it. Ha Ha Ha ha
7 Lies You’ve Been Told About Gay Men
Hey Hey APJ,
One of my heroes is Dame Edna Everidge. She paved a form of drag that made it a good deal more acceptable to make my own career choices. With her fun, caustic, witty and well researched brand of humour she reached millions of people who would never have even thought about seeing a drag show in its Gay Land form but who would cough up big bickies to see this mad maven mock and reduce everything they were and loved. Did it in such a way that both victim and audience were laughing. That is an amazing talent.

I have only met Barry Humphries on a couple of occasions and he was extremely charming. When I thanked him for making my career choices easier, made it so much easier to say to Mum that I was going to be like Dame Edna, in fact made what I do verge on acceptable he was so humble and modest. It had never occurred to him that his being Dame Edna changed anyone’s life for the better other than the moments he spent making them laugh and think in theatres and on TV around the globe.
60 years in a profession notorious for its brevity. Amazing.
Here you see a chat on The Talk in America. Even though Dame Edna is her usual caustic self you can tell there has been long, hard thought about life and the place in it that Barry and Edna hold by both the cast and Edna. A lovely 3.20 minutes.

OMG!! I am sitting here and have had to shut my office door because I’m making stupid noises and tears are streaming down my face. This is so freaking funny and so awful. I can’t help but put myself in the bosses place and it’s a wretched place to be.

Hiya APJ Crew,
So maybe I’ve told you before. I styled myself on two legendary superstars and their kiddy re-animations. The two stars? Loretta Switt and Divine. Re-animations? Miss Piggy and Ursula the Sea Witch.

Someone who I thought was kind of funny but admired much more for her dedication and ability to rise in a job where women were less than welcome was Joan Rivers. That kind of tenacity is amazing and even more so when you saw her, a tiny little doll like woman. She was quite old when I met her in Sydney at the Mardi Gras for a very short moment, and she was basically being held up by her minders to get through the crowds, but in my two seconds with her she was lovely. Now she’s gone but there is so much to remember her by.

Here is a super fun piece on the Piggy/Rivers Feud.
After you watch the video, perhaps you’s like to scent these two fabulous women?

Hey there Cat Lovers,
This is clever, dumb and fabulous. Great story, voice and writing, even the ending where it becomes an ad is excellent.
