Manic Monday: Going Gaga this weekend

Ola my lovelies!

SO as some of you might or might not know, I’m a huge Little Monster. I’m a massive Lady Gaga fan, and yes to my metal fans, I know this may come as a shock to you, but please sit down, have a glass of vodka on the rocks and just get over it!

What I love about this bitch is her devotion to her fans, her strong attitude towards equality and yes, even I rock out to her music!

This weekend she’s going to perform her “Born This Way Ball” at the FNB Stadium in Soweto, South Africa and of course me and many of my gay friends are going with me to rock out to “Judas”, “You and I” and “Born this Way”.

If you’re in Joburg this weekend and you haven’t gotten a ticket yet, you suck. Officially. BUT if you wanna be part of the cool crowd, you can buy a ticket here, like right now:

I promise to dress absolutely outrageous, carry on extremely ridiculously and take lots and lots of manic pictures and maybe even a video or two.

Hope to see you there…

Have a fabulous week!

WTF Wednesday: Toddlers & Tiaras

Hey my sexies!

So, call me crazy, but am I the only one who sees the madness in TLC’s TV show Toddlers & Tiaras? To me that show in one massive W-T-F rolled into one.

Don’t know what I’m talking about?

Well the show is basically about little girls being dressed up like mini-adults and paraded around a stage in a beauty pageant. Some contestants are babies and go up to the age of say… 10? I’m not even sure.

Sure, you’re probably thinking it’s all in good fun, but when you take a tiny little girl and dress her up in poofy dresses with fake boobs, tons of makeup, fake tans, fake nails and pluck their eyebrows, surely it’s going to cause some kind of psychological damage?

According to http://www.psychologycorner.com, it can.

“What can a child learn by being a professional/serial beauty pageant contestant? Well, encouraging the sense of competition is okay, having a hobby to be dedicated to is okay, spending time with mom is great, but when you become a winning machine, a 1st place chaser or a tiara collector, serious psychological problems are just around the corner. These contests promote pshysical beauty as a main value, complimented of course by the ‘special talent’ and ‘warm hearts’. A child, especially a female that is going to pay so much attention to her looks and that knows she is being assesed for it, is very proned to develop eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia.”

I blame the parents. I mean looking at the parents (especially the moms), they’re either ex-beauty queens themselves or have a strange fascination with beauty pageants and are living their dreams through their little girls (or boys).

The kids learn to be viciously competitive, obsessed with beauty and become downright brats in the making, when they should be playing with dolls or playing outside and getting scrapes on their knees from falling off their first bicycles… and not shaving rashes from their first wax!

Seems like the parents forget that they’re just little kiddies still growing up.

Anyway on a lighter note, check out this funny video of little Yvette, a pageant kid who’s just happy to be on TV:

Have a fabtastic Wednesday!
