Diva Dish: The Latest Scoop

Ok, people, Martha Wash is a diva who truly loves her gay fans and she isn't taking any bull dinkies from bullying homophobes. Martha is so just not having it! Understand?

Mayor Anatoly Pakhomov of Sochi, the Russian city hosting the Winter Olympics next month, told the BBC regarding gay visitors to the Olympics ceremonies: "We just say that it is your business, it's your life. But it's [being gay] not accepted here in the Caucasus where we live. We do not have them in our city."

Quipped Martha: "We do not have them in our city?" Oh, my ... 

But our Weather Girl -- who has recently recorded a new dance single with Tony Moran -- was just warming up. 

Official Charts Company UK reported a few days ago that "It's Raining Men" by The Weather Girls is "set to storm the Official Singles Chart Top 20" since UKIP councillor David Silvester (ironic that his last name should be what it is) sent an open letter to Prime Minister David Cameron and, according to Official Charts: claimed that the UK’s recent spate of bad weather was a direct reaction to last year’s Marriage (Same-Sex Couples) Act.

"Since the passage of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act, the nation has been beset by serious storms and floods," Silvester wrote. “This is not new. This happened in the Old Testament – they were warned if they turned against God there would be pestilence, there would be war, there would be disasters."

Martha fired back on her Facebook page:

"First of all I don't know anything about David Silvester, but I did read the article about him and his comments and concluded that as a straight woman who supports the LGBT community, he is totally Daft (as the British would say). While he is entitled to his opinion, I feel he is out of touch with reality. To say that "storms and floods were caused by LGBT people and gay marriage".....Really? He sounds like someone living in the 80's when it was said HIV/Aids was caused by "gay people". I think some people need to buy a clue and realize that everything wrong or bad or catastrophic is not caused by gay people. I support same-sex unions or marriages (depending on where you live) and feel it should be equality for ALL!!!
 

"BTW I'm a Christian also and the God I serve is ALL LOVE for ALL People. HE knows who he created.
 

"In regards to using It's Raining Men to support this campaign, I have no problem with it. I'm flattered that after all these years, the song is still relevant (even if it is for "storms and floods")!! Lol XO"

Go, Martha! Meanwhile, her truly inspirational new album is available through Amazon.com. Here's my Leave It to Beaverhausen review as it appeared on her official website: http://www.marthawash.com/beaverhausen-im-into-something-good-martha-wash/

Cher just announced that Pat Benatar will be the opening act for the Western half of her upcoming concert tour while Cyndi Lauper will open for the Eastern half in the USA. Cher 's "Take It Like a Man" remains at #2 on this week's Billboard dance /club chart.

Mel B of The Spice Girl's special, spicy "For Once in My Life" tears up the chart to the 9th spot, now nestled in the top ten, from last week's 13th place, and all this in six weeks!

Ok, dance diva worshipers, will be back soon with more disco diva news and, in the meantime, please join the UK in bringing "It's Raining Men," the Bob Esty/Paul Jabara song performed by The Weather Girls, back as a protest song.
