Despite Straight Lines, Indeed ...

I wondered why my blog traffic was suddenly going through the roof yesterday on a post I'd written in January about '80s gender bender Marilyn. Seems the onetime BFF of Boy George has finally "admitted"(!) his affair with Mr. Gwen Stefani himself, Gavin Rossdale, something I'm sure was just awful for him to do, living in the projects with his mum these days, no doubt on the dole. (Despite what the story says, I DO NOT remember Marilyn denying the affair back when Boy George wrote about in his 1995 memoir, "Take It Like a Man.")

I picked up a copy of the mag this afternoon and while I don't doubt they were lovers (would fucking Marilyn even make Gavin bi?!), there are a few doozies in there that seem a bit much even from a vain, washed-up '80s drag diva (LOVE HIM!), including the following gems: Marilyn claims to not be gay. Marilyn claims to have not been intimate with anyone since Gavin. Marilyn claims he and Gwen "kept locking eyes" at her 2002 wedding to Rossdale. And he claims that a friend close to the rocker couple tells him his name is "taboo" around the Rossdale-Stefani house. He also thinks it's a little "suspect" that Gavin named his first son Kingston, the city where Marilyn was born. (I'll give you that one, Maz!!!)

I love Maz, but her story about her not being gay & not having any "relationships" with anyone after Gav is about as true as the internet was invented by Al Gore! Girl, shut yer traphole! He-he! Hope she got paid handsomely for her time though (God knows she needs it)!

BTW, when Gavin's band played here in town years ago, I couldn't figure out why both he & his brother were staring me down so much before/during & after their gig. Now I know why...Maz & I share a similar androgyny (and they both probably thought I was her)! He-he!
