Buddy Beaverhausen's Weekly Diva Report 2/27/14

Greetings, diva worshippers! And what is a diva, exactly, by my standards? Well, I like Urban Dictionary's definition best: adj. pronounced (DEE-VAH)- 1. to describe a person who exudes great style and personality with confidence and expresses their own style and not letting others influence who they are or want to be. 2. A person whose character makes them stands out from the rest. 3. Noun; a person's title in a group of friends or in society that is popular or famous and who many people try to copy. 4. A person who tries to achieve what they want and who do not let people get in their way, and doing so with style and class. Ex. 1. Yeah girl my friend is such a diva. 2. That boy can sure act like a diva sometimes.

Get it? Got it? Good. Because here we go with our divalicious update for the week.

First off, I just want to say Happy Birthday to the late, great Elizabeth Taylor. Accepting a GLAAD Award in 2000, she told the audience, "There is no gay agenda. It's a human agenda!" We love and salute the divine Liz, one of our favorite divas of the silver screen.

Rumor is rife that Liza might be involved in the upcoming (Sunday, Feb. 2) Oscar tribute to The Wizard of Oz. I hope this is true. Bette and Liza on the same Academy Awards ceremony? How fabulous would that be!
Talking about the Oscars, Yahoo blabbed last week:

If [the] engraved nameplate is any indication, this year's Oscar winner for Best Actor will be Leonardo DiCaprio for "The Wolf of Wall Street." Yes, Twitter is currently abuzz with the release of a CNN screencap that reveals the nameplate, that supposedly reveals a great big Oscar spoiler a full 20 days before the actual ceremony.

However, Yahoo goes on further to explain: If true, this would be a gaffe of, um, titanic proportions for the ultra-secretive Academy. And it would give everyone a freebie on their Oscar pools. But no, this is not a supreme spoiler. In fact, final voting for the Oscars hasn't even started yet. Balloting commences on Friday and closes on Feb. 25. So while Leo might indeed be a frontrunner (don't tell Chiwetel Ejiofor), it doesn't mean he's already locked up the prize. So how to explain the nameplate? As of 2010, the Academy creates engraved nameplates for every Oscar nominee, with the winners being given their nameplates at the Governor's Ball on Oscar night.

Kylie Minogue's new album, Kiss Me Once, doesn't drop until April Fool's Day in the US but her single,  "Into the Blue" (with club remixes) is out now. Fabulous! 


Is Jan Brewer a diva? Not, in my opinion described above. The craggy-faced Governor of AZ fits more into an alternative definition provided by Urban Dictionary, witch ~ I mean, which ~ is:
a bitchy woman that must have her way exactly, or no way at all. often rude and belittles people, believes that everyone is beneath her and thinks that she is so much more loved than what she really is. selfish, spoiled, and overly dramatic.

About an hour after reading my post at Queens Our City Radio, Jan vetoed the state's proposed anti-gay legislature. http://queens.ourcityradio.com/stations/americana-news/view-ny-current-az-problem Coincidence? Or not? Consequently but typically, the Teabaggers went ballistic after Brewer's decision. Famed gay blogger Perez Hilton posted on his blog: "Thankfully, mercifully, Governor Jan Brewer has come to her senses." Meanwhile, Jon Stewart said, on The Daily Show, "This is where you are now, Arizona. You've made yourselves too homophobic and dickish for professional football." Ouch!

And that wraps up our diva dish for the week. More blab and gab next time and, meanwhile, cultivate your inner divas in case you haven't already.

In closing, I leave you with the divas' theme song:



Thankfully, mercifully, Governor Jan Brewer has come to her senses — just moments ago she VETOED that horrible, hateful bill instead of signing it into law! - See more at: http://perezhilton.com/2014-02-26-arizona-governor-jan-brewer-vetoes-anti-gay-bill-senate-bill-1062#sthash.tMaVbAw6.dpuf
