Our Queer-Ass Lives: Sick, Italy, Mariah
Johnny is SICK; you fuckers better tweet us or he won’t survive! Philly gives us a vocal journey through his gorgeous trip to Italy.  Juju traveled to Madison Square to see the QUEEN Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie.  Despacito ft. Justin Bieber is unfortunately tied with Mariah Carey and. Boys to Men’s “One Sweet Day” for longest running #1 song.  Let’s root for this to not go to a takeover.

Pop News: Katy and the VMA’s
Philly takes down Katy Perry’s “Swish Swish” music video, saved only by Nicki Minaj’s existence.  Juju had to turn off the VMA’s.

Not a Kesha Episode

Intro Song: “Ready to Break” by Johnny Darlin

From his upcoming EP “Push”

https://itun.es/us/0yta9

 

Outro Song: “Ship Tools” by Cameron Toy

From “No Good Art in Paradise”

#PRAYING that anything else in the female pop landscape becomes relevant aside from Kesha. JK, we are OBSESSED with this moment. JK, we don’t talk about Kesha at all this episode we promise.

Philly updates us on the work crush saga, Johnny makes a return performance at the event that started it all and Juju had a rapturous Fourth of July weekend.

We each provide a diverse set of news topics that have nothing to do with Kesha.  Really!  Johnny talks UFO’s, I talk fashion and Philly talks Times Square Billboards.

JK You guys, we are fucken trolls!

Our main topic is the inimitable, iconic, legendary, phoenix-like Kesha “Ke$ha Rose” Sebert, y’all!!!!!  She is back with a video that shocked us all awake again “Praying”.  We talk her illustrious, misunderstood career as a pop star and songwriter, as well as, of course, the intense legal proceedings effecting her creative expression and public image - the rape “allegations” against Dr. Luke.

Hear what we have to say and sound off!
