The Confessions Of Rufus Wainright

RufusW_VArticle
Here is the interview

Q: You’ve sung in Latin, you’ve referenced Thomas Mann, and your new album pays tribute to Shakespeare. What’s your beef with the 21st century?
A: I am a little slower in my percolations. I like examining what’s come before. But that said, I’m addicted to Real Housewives of Orange County and Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I get sideswiped by the boobs, the hair, the butts, the jewels, the cars, the bad boys. And I love, love 50 Cent. I think he’s just the sexiest, and a brilliant writer. And I know he’s gay.

Q: What makes you so sure?
A: That cute little voice of his. It’s okay, 50 Cent. Feel free to call me anytime. My boyfriend and I are experts. You can come over for dinner. And maybe dessert.

Q: You were born in America but raised in Montreal. What’s the most Canadian thing about you?
A: My love of maple syrup. I’ve been known to knock back a can over a couple days: A swig here, a swig there, and next thing you know it’s gone. It’s a habit I have to stave off. I don’t want to lose all my teeth. I stopped doing crystal meth—I don’t want to look like an addict.

Q: What’s the best part of a crystal-meth high?
A: There’s nothing enjoyable about it. It gets its hooks in you. I’ve done every kind of drug, and each one has something laudable about it, except meth.

Q: How did your parents—the folk musicians Loudon Wainwright III and (the late) Kate McGarrigle—react when you came out in your teens?
A: I love my folks, and they’ve done a good job coming full circle, but they were terrible: terrified, ill-equipped, confused. They threatened to kick me out of the house. They didn’t want to talk about it and just weren’t there for me. I mean, it was the mid-eighties and AIDS was pervasive, so I can’t blame them totally for their insanity. And they changed a lot over the years.

Q: Musician Stephin Merritt recently advised gay aspiring musicians not to come out. Do you agree?
A: I find that a bit cynical. I don’t have the energy or the emotional repression to bottle that stuff up. It’s true, it’s tougher careerwise if you come out, but this is a human-rights issue, and it’s important to keep putting dents in it. It’s about two teenagers being beheaded for holding hands in Saudi Arabia. It’s bigger than someone’s music career.

Q: Do women ever try to “convert” you?
A: Now that I’m with my boyfriend it’s less of an issue. There was a period when it happened. I have some funny stories. There’s one where a high-end, Fifth Avenue society woman started hitting on me. She was in her thirties, and I was, like, 20. She got really trashed and said, “You know, girls like it up the wazoo, too!”

Q: When you were a baby, your father wrote a song about you breastfeeding called “Rufus Is a Tit Man.” Do you like that song?
A: It’s great! When I was 5 or 6, I’d be standing on the table at a bar where my dad was playing, screaming, “Play ‘Rufus Is a Tit Man’!”

Q: That’s funny, since it’s really about his Freudian envy of you and your mom.
A: My dad and I have always been somewhat competitive. But we’ve reached a good place. We’ve managed to carve out areas of interest that don’t intersect. A lot of our reconciliation centered around my mother’s death. It was like a King Arthur story when I was growing up: My father was off looking for the Grail, and my mother was at home making potions and raising her demonic children.

Q: Were you afraid when you began cruising bars in Montreal for sex at 14?
A: That was part of the arousal. I kind of sought fear. I was rebelling against parents who were rebellious themselves, which is tough. One could argue it was a bad thing, but on the other hand it’s such an iconic image. A 14-year-old kid at the bar—it’s pretty wild. Talk about the movie rights!

Whitney Houston: “I’m Feeling Great”

R&B superstar Whitney Houston is returning to good health. The singer was forced to cancel her European concert dates over an upper-respiratory infection earlier this week. She tells People.com, quote, “I’m feeling great. I’m just ready to move on and continue my world tour.” Houston was hospitalized earlier this week in Paris, just ahead of her Tuesday night concert at Bercy Palace, which was postponed. But the singer doesn’t want fans to worry. She says, quote, “My health is terrific. But this is a time when I get a lot of allergies.” With the first dates of her European tour already rescheduled, Houston is now set to begin her tour there on Tuesday, April 13th in Birmingham, England.

Houston says any reports of her having gone into a downward drug spiral are “ridiculous” and that she doesn’t even respond to those kinds of reports anymore.

The homie Trey Songz will have a new album on shelves this fall. The singer’s manager – and Def Jam executive – Kevin Liles says fans can look for a new release this September. He tells MTV News, quote,

“September 14th, new album. He’s not gonna stop. He’s gonna keep his foot on people’s necks, and he’s going to make sure they understand that we have to redefine R&B. We have to work hard every single day to be the best.” Liles says he is continually “inspired” by Trey Songz, noting that the vocalist has a busy schedule coming up in the next few month. In particular, Songz will be appearing in a new reality show with Young Jeezy this June, as well as participating in the BET Awards.

Liles adds, quote, “We’ve got the “Blueprint Three” [tour experience] from the eyes of Jeezy and Trey Songz coming out. The first show airs on BET on June 27, the night of the BET Awards. The show comes first, and then right after that, the BET Awards.” Trey Songz’s last album, “Ready,” dropped last August. The record opened at number three on the Billboard 200 chart, and has since sold more than 600-thousand units.

Game discussed working with the “Sexy Back” singer saying, quote, “I never thought in my life that I would ever work with Justin, and then for it to turn out and be as catastrophic as it was was amazing.” Game’s “The R.E.D. Album” will serve as his follow-up to 2008’s “LAX,” which opened at number two on the Billboard 200 after selling 238-thousand copies in its first week.
