Inside 'Drag Race' Star Derrick Barry's 'Trinogomous' Relationship
Huffington Post - about 1 month
When it comes to Britney Spears, attention to detail is everything for Derrick Barry. From costumes to hand gestures, the impersonator has memorized Britney’s every rhinestone, hair flip and “yeah-yeah-yeah.” Details of the former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant’s personal life even read like lyrics ripped from the mega-star’s hit single “3.” For nearly five years, Barry has been one-third of a romantic triad. In partners Nick San Pedro, an acclaimed visual artist, and Mackenzie Claude, male model and fellow drag performer Nebraska Thunderfuck, Barry has found both love and creative inspiration, calling it “the perfect marriage.” “We get to join each other on gigs, travel together, go on vacations together and not work that typical 9-to-5 that doesn’t allow us to go places together,” she told Party Foul Radio with Pollo & Pearl. Joined by her partners on Podomatic’s No. 1 LGBT podcast, Barry told of meeting San Pedro in Vegas, long before either knew Claude. Barry says she, fel ...

Bob Dylan's Grandson Levi Is One Very Handsome Model
Huffington Post - about 1 month
It’s not uncommon for the children and grandchildren of celebrities to pursue similar paths as their famous relatives. And it appears that model Levi Dylan, son of Jakob Dylan and grandson of Bob Dylan, is anything but a wallflower.  The younger Dylan walked in Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall/Winter 2017 fashion show in Milan on Tuesday, looking downright babely in a double-breasted jacket, a pair of glasses and buckled shoes.  Dylan told The Cut back in August 2016 that he wouldn’t do runway work because “those guys are really tall,” but changed his tune to walk alongside other famous offspring like Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s son Brandon Lee, Jude Law’s son Rafferty and Cindy Crawford’s son, Presley Gerber. The show is not the 22-year-old’s first foray into the modeling world. Dylan has posed for Wonderland Magazine and Vogue Italia, crediting his photographer girlfriend Alana O’Herlihy with introducing him to the industry. He has also appeared at Fashion Week be ...

Lady Gaga Serves Some Bowie-Inspired Couture Realness At Grammys After-Party
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Say what you want about Lady Gaga, but when she commits to a concept, boy, does she follow through.  After her show-stopping tribute to the late, great David Bowie onstage and on the red carpet, the singer celebrated her big night in another Bowie-inspired look for a Grammys after-party on Monday.  Rocking the same florescent orange hair as earlier in the night, Gaga upgraded the lightning bolt projected on her face during the performance to a mosaic-style design, as well as adding some earrings in the shape of black stars, most likely a reference to Bowie's last album.  To compliment the face art, Gaga wore a coral colored dress with jeweled embroidery on the bust and straps, giving us some serious Queen of the Nile vibes. She paired the brightly colored frock with matching shoes and an oversized white feathery boa. Yes, that's Pamela Anderson standing next to her, and no, we're not going to comment on whatever might have happened there. As the saying goes: if you do ...
