Brandy Grown Up

Clay Cane

Despite a rough couple of years, onetime R&B princess Brandy is holding her head high on her new album Human. Though gay fans would probably line the block for a sequel of "The Boy Is Mine" with former duet buddy Monica, don't hold your breath -- Brandy, now 29, says, "We're too old for that."

She's Back, Bitches

David Michael Conner

Britney Spears is a perennial favorite of the type that chases ambulances -- not for the potential lawsuits, but just to get a glimpse of the tragedy inside. On her new album, Circus, Spears begins -- finally -- to justify some of the idol worship that legions of gay fanboys have heaped upon her image.

Shoshana Bean Is Lookin' for a Superhero

Charles Romaine

Not many girls can wow a Broadway crowd in shows like Wicked and Hairspray, then turn around and bring the audience to its feet at the Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards. But Shoshana Bean goes far beyond what most people might expect, as evidenced by her soulful debut album, Superhero.

Clay Cane

Armed with a new album of soul classics and his trademark blunt outlook on the state of the world, Seal sat down with Advocate.com to discuss the rumors that he and wife Heidi Klum would have left the country had John McCain been elected, the gay rights movement, and what makes Seal's sound so damn sexy.

Politics and Progress With Patti LaBelle 

Matt Bell

The last time girl-group Labelle dropped an album, the thought of a black president or same-sex marriage seemed as “far-out” as the band’s disco-spacewoman suits and fusion of disco, rock, and soul. But the button-pushing, soul-singing trio has reunited, and on the heels of Prop. 8 passing and Barack Obama being elected president, Patti LaBelle talks to The Advocate about the mix of emotions she's dealt with over the past few weeks.

Carmen Finds Her Spotlight

Charlie Richards

It’s not very often that a lowly music critic gets the privilege of witnessing a glowing performance by a major new talent at the beginning of his or her career, but that is certainly what happened to yours truly on the evening of November 15 at the Los Angeles Opera. Viktoria Vizin, an astounding new mezzo-soprano making her L.A. Opera debut as Carmen this season, took my breath away.

Gaga for the Lady

Louis Virtel

Lady Gaga cavorts in couture. She only dons platinum wigs that suggest the presence of radioactivity. And she yells for you to dance, all in tribute to her favorite muse -- fame.

Hip-Hop Guru Kim Osorio Talks Homophobia  

Clay Cane

Kim Osorio became a hip-hop legend in 2003 when she became the first (and so far, only) female editor in chief at The Source magazine, regarded as the Bible of hip-hop. After she was fired in 2005, Osorio took her case to court -- and won a judgment in her favor to the tune of $7.5 million. Now in her book, Straight From the Source, Osorio talks about the sexism and homophobia that often shaped her time in and around the hip-hop industry.

Jessica and Dolly Get Intimate

Advocate.com Editors

Have Jessica Simpson and Dolly Parton found their own "island in the stream"? The lyrics to their new duet make the buxom blonds sounds suspiciously close. Now you tell us what you think!

Eric Himan’s Battle Cry

James Hillis

Striking, gay, tattooed pop-rocker Eric Himan has amassed a loyal following at his club dates across the country. But it’s his activist lyrics and take no prisoners attitude that has gay service men, the trans community and practically everyone who ever longed for a musician to empathize with their feelings that has fans lining up around the block.
