The gay community has always supported fierce, outspoken women and men. These stars proved what it takes though to become a true gay icon.

The term “gay icon” is thrown around a lot lately, at least by members of the gay community. As soon as a pop star releases a dance single or pulls off some sickening stunt on stage, somebody is quick to pull the “gay icon” card. While there are many ways of earning that title, it usually involves years of dedication to the community that supported you, and proving that you care about them as much as they care about you.

One of the most coveted achievements in the world of entertainment is the EGOT. Some talented artists have received it, but what about the stars who are super close to receiving an EGOT? What even is an EGOT?

In case you’re confused, EGOT stands for Emmy, Oscar, Grammy, and Tony. Getting just one of these awards is a tremendous achievement. Getting all of them is nearly impossible. Less than 20 people have received all four awards, but greats like Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn, and Mel Brooks have been awarded accordingly. Read More

Whatever happened to …

In the Grammy world, there are big categories (Record of the Year), strange categories (Best Polka Album) and extinct categories (Best Disco Recording).

And then there are the fun ones like Best New Artist, home to some of the more interesting names over the Grammys’ ears. From the legendary (The Beatles ’64, Bette Midler ’73) to the luckless (Bobbie Gentry ’67, Rickie Lee Jones ’79) to the “why?!” (Starland Vocal Band ’76,
Debby Boone ’77), best new artists have come in all shapes and styles. Read More

But the rewards were just beginning.

A few hours later, instead of doing the party circuit, Richie was working with more than 40 other musicians in recording the single that would be heard ’round the world. When they were done, “We Are the World” eventually would raise $61.8 million for famine relief in Ethiopia.

The inspiration for the song had come from England, where Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof had assembled a group of British musicians under the name of Band Aid. Read More
