Mike Diamond: You Slept With My Stalker?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
There just aren't enough men to go around. You wanna talk about slim pickings? I look around and think to myself, "I'm the butch one?" Oh, honey, scary times indeed. In a more perfect world, perhaps everyone would be happily partnered, assured of always having a "better half," like the animals on Noah's Ark (and I mean the biblical fairy tale, not that hideous "comedy" that once aired on Logo). The harsh reality is that in terms of sex and romance, it's brutally competitive out there. Strictly for research purposes, I have dipped my toes (and a few other body parts) into the seamy underbelly of the M4M scene. Dates, hookups, drive-by love affairs, I tried them all. The results were shocking and occasionally caused chafing. First, some math: There are 314 million people in the U.S.. Roughly half of them, or 157 million, are male. Ten percent of those are gay, and of those 15.7 million, 80 percent, or 12.5 million, overpluck their eyebrows. That leaves 3.2 million potent ...

Comment on Exclusive Audio Interview: Millie Jackson Uncensored & Unsung by PlanetRock
Eur Web - about 5 years
I watch the TV One Unsung episodes, but there are often glaring omissions in those shows. 1) TV One Unsung-<a class="fplink fp-198874" href="/millie+jackson+1">Millie Jackson</a> could not get airplay for raunchy late 1970′s albums. Misleading: Her biggest R&amp;B album “Feelin’ B*tchy” had one of her biggest radio hits ever, “If You’re Not Back In Love By Monday”-reached # 5 Billboard R&amp;B singles in 1977-never mentioned in the episode. Full Force’s Unsung: their only top 10 R&amp;B as Full Force “All In My Mind” (# 6 R&amp;B Billboard 1988) never mentioned. Freddie Jackson episode – “You Are My Lady” listed as biggest Freddie Jackson hit. Misleading: “You Are My Lady” (2 weeks # 1 R&amp;B 1985), but “Rock Me Tonight” much bigger R&amp;B hit (6 weeks # 1 R&amp;B 1985) (both top 20 pop hits). AlbuIm “Just Like The First Time” 26 weeks at # 1 R&amp;B 1986 – second longest #1 R&amp;B album of the 1980′s second only to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Incredible feat never mentioned ...
