We Love You, K.D.

The NY Post’s sole point of interest with regard to last week’s Juno awards: ‘Canada’s most famous lesbian’ k.d. lang’s especially portly appearance of late. TOist is unimpressed. Richard, Paula, Chris, et al: Leave your catty fat-jokes to your own Britneys and Tobeys: K.D. is an artist, and totally above caring about the South Beach or Hamptons diet or whatever other excuse for narcissism you’re employing these days. She wears black capes. She does covers of songs by Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, and Ron Sexsmith. Ron Sexsmith!
K.D. says: “I started to realize that [caring about image]was disposable and fraudulent . . . it’s dealing with the hair, the makeup, the high heels. It removes you from the essence of who you are and what you have to offer.” We say: rock on.
