Head Over Heals


In this clip, James Duke Mason -- aka "Dukey," the (openly comfortably gay) teenage son of Belinda Carlisle and grandson of James Mason -- reports that his rocker mom is mad about endorsing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for president. (Like I need another reason to love Babe!) It's so sweet to see what a smart, poised and well-spoken kid he is. His parents (Dad is Morgan Mason, a former Reagan staffer) obviously did a good job raising him. After watching this I was talking to my friend Mark -- my partner in crime back in our Go-Go's stalking days -- and we couldn't help but wonder how different things must be for kids coming out in today's world versus a generation ago. It's a joy to see the progress as demonstrated by outspoken young people like Dukey. Check out the rest of his politics etc. vlog here.

OH, FINALLY! Now we only need to hear from John Edwards. [haha] He's adorable and articulate, just like Barack Obama. As long as he isn't elitist...that's, like, rillllly bad. Seriously, I'm all for stars endorsing, and while I'm frustrated with Hillary's last-second, fruitless maneuvers to beat Barack down (if she'd been this good six months ago...), I'm especially happy to hear that Belinda likes either Hillary or Barack...and is not a McCain popstar (always an issue when your hubby has a shrine to, and worked for, Ronnie Reagan.)

Imagine having had James Mason as your grandfather? Scolding you in THAT voice. Too cool.

He sort of has inflections of his grandfather's voice - maybe the voice gets better with age?

But, um, he's a teenager?

He was born in April 27th 1992 so he's a teenager. Just google a Belinda Carlisle bio.

Many many months ago Belinda was on Derek and Romaine (Sirius OutQ) and she brought him with here. Belinda gushed about how smart he was and how interested James was in politics. They were in town for a meeting she had to attend and he wanted to see the NY legislature in session.
