‘Gay icons like to dress up’: Bob Mackie on Cher, Tina Turner, Bette Midler, and dressing Elton John

‘Gay icons like to dress up’: Bob Mackie on Cher, Tina Turner and dressing Elton John
By Hannah Marriott
August 20, 2018

Bette Midler, Elton John, Cher, Bob Mackie, and Flip Wilson

You could dine out for a lifetime on Bob Mackie’s stories. After 60 years of designing sequin-encrusted stage costumes for Cher, Bette Midler, and Diana Ross, to name a few, the 79-year-old has anecdotes to spare. He sprinkles them into the conversation like glitter.

He once dressed Elton John as Donald Duck, complete with tail and webbed feet, making it very difficult for the Rocket Man to play the piano. He worked with Tina Turner during her post-Ike transformation, when “she wanted to look like a sexy cave woman”. Barbra Streisand, he says, “was always questioning everything. ‘Does this really look good? Can we try on three or four, then decide?’ With that kind of sensibility, you work harder, believe me.” Read More

This Is So Why I Love Bitchy Queen Forums! Call Me A Homophobe! I Ain’t Scared Of No ‘MO’ (Mister D Is Saying This)

From Deadhorseinterchange.net
July 19, 2018

Mister D: Hey! There’s a reason we have stereotypes and cliches, because they are so abundantly around us. I love it. It makes the world a colorful place. When you try to quash these characteristics, you really don’t know what you’re going to create. In the case of gays, it turned out to be guys with great bods who still acted like girls. LOL I didn’t say that. I never said that. Just so this doesn’t get attributed to Ms. Midler, this is Don who has nothing to do with Miss Midler. So if you’re going to attack, attack me!

Bette Midler, Cher Special, Old Bette

Some gay named Tony: “She was in a 90s Brooke Shields sitcom vehicle called Suddenly Susan. The media kept her around to try and make her the next white woman face of gay men after Cher and Bette Midler got too old. Now? She looks WAY older than her real age of 57. Can’t believe how bad she looks. It’s like all the plastic surgery deflated all at once.”
