Bang!! Crash!! Pow!! What’s this?? Sounds like another gossip bomb is about to go off after another terrorist strike from the top tranny who specializes in Hollywood terrorism, Shamantha Cox, and her weapons of mass gossip destruction, found only in the explosive pages of everyone’s favorite fag rag Odyssey mag!!!!!! Huh?? Shamantha’s sister from the Sand Land, Khloe Kardashian, is rumored to be getting ready for divorce! Rumor has it she’s been crying nonstop after yet another Lamar Odom cheating scandal erupted!! Oh dear! Pop music diva, Chaka Khan, has revealed she had a nasty prescription drug addiction that she managed to kick; and she’s praying for Lindsay Lohan to stay on track in her sobriety after her recent completion and release from a 90-day lock down, court-ordered rehab facility! Sources close to old fire crotch say she’s doing fine and gearing up for her biiig reality television show with Queen of the airwaves, Oprah Winfrey!! According to media reports, Lindsay has been avoiding her messy mom, Dina, and is back on good terms with her father, Michael Lohan, and her siblings, all of whom have been spotted in New York City dining together as part of Lindsay’s new family friendly sober life! Oh no! Sexy R & B singer, Usher, almost lost his adorable 5-year-old son who ended up in the ICU after he nearly drowned!!! And, his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, who he had a nasty divorce with is blaming Usher for the accident, saying he didn’t do his parental job in supervising their young son, and Tameka ran as fast as possible directly ODYSSEYMAGAZINE.NET • AUGUST 9–22, 2013
to the clerk’s office at the court to file documents demanding primary custody! The incident is especially tragic considering Usher’s 11-year-old stepson, Kile Glover, was killed after being struck by a Jet Ski on Lake Lanier!!
Wow!! 1980’s wrestling relic, Hulk Hogan, has revealed Hollywood is developing a big budget feature film about his life!! Let’s hope they include the gay sex scenes that his ex-wife, Linda Hogan, declared took place between the hunky Hulk and his fellow wrestler, Brutus Beefcake!! Linda later retracted her gay claim after some legal threats were made!! Sad news!! Margaret Pellegrini on of the last living Munchkins from the original Wizard of Oz 1939 classic film starring Judy Garland has passed away at 89 years old after suffering from a stroke! And, it’s another fight for the Queen of Fights that no one likes, Nicki Minaj!! It wasn’t enough that she already counts top royalty like best female rapper of all time, Lil’ Kim, and singing diva, Mariah Carey, as her enemies! Now, the annoying nonpassable, bad transvestite lookalike has started a war with a talented rapper named Ransom!! Apparently she hears a rumor that Ransom suggested he may have written some songs for her!! Well, Nicki got super pissed and called him “fucking desperate” in a long rant to one of Harvey Levin’s henchmen at TMZ!!
Kids in the Hall, who??? The new ruler of sketch comedy is Cotton Venus and her hit show, “Furry Creek”!! Speaking of hit shows don’t miss, “Orange is the New Black”, the AMAAAZING new original series from Netflix about a woman in prison starring major talents like Natasha Lyonne, Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Jason Biggs, Michelle Hurst, Kate Mulgrew, Taryn Manning, and gorgeous real life t-girl turned A-list actress, Laverne Cox!! We are so proud of girls like Laverne, Candice Cayne, and Calpernia Adams for giving transsexual actresses a voice and a place in Hollywood where they rightly belong!! Sigh. Another bad behavior scandal for Miss Justin Bieber! It looks like she hacked some spit at her fans from a hotel balcony in Toronto and one smart fan captured the saliva as it dripped out of Justin’s barely legal mouth!!!
What’s this??? Has old cracker Simon Cowell lost his senile mind?? He WAS dating the world’s most gorgeous woman of all time, Carmen Electra, and NOW it has recently been revealed he was simultaneously in a relationship with Lauren Silverman who is pregnant with his baby!! Now, he’s supposedly calling off all his other affairs to be with Lauren only!!! Who can even keep up with Taylor Swift’s rapidly changing love life?!! She’s had affairs with everyone from Harry Styles of “One Direction” to
“American Royalty” like Connor Kennedy!! Now, rumor has it she is shacking up with “Criminal Minds” superstar, Matthew Gray Gubler!! Career killer surprise!! Looks like Jennifer Aniston better start filling out some welfare paperwork and standing in the unemployment line after the big budget flick, “We’re The Millers”, that she starred in alongside Jason Sudeikis and Emma Roberts has tanked big time at the box office!! The film only took in $1.7 million in disappointing ticket sales across the country!! Speaking of her costar Emma Roberts, Emma was arrested in Montreal last month after she got into a domestic fight with her boyfriend, “American Horror Story” actor, Evan Peters!! Friends close, like her Aunt, mega-star Julia Roberts, fear that Hollywood is taking its toll on Emma and she may be headed for drug/ alcohol related combustion!! Well, well, well!! Everyone’s favorite Disney girl gone bad, Miley Cyrus, has announced her forthcoming album will be called “Bangers”!! She’s up for some stiff competition this season as Lady GaGa has announced she will be releasing the first single to her album, “Artpop” on August 19th!! Lady Gaga recently won a court battle to have secret documents put under seal because apparently they contain damaging information that would ruin her career!!! Don’t worry! No secret gets past your lady of the gossip Hamas, the #1 leader of the Hollywood Gossip Taliban, Shamantha Bin Laden Cox!! Keep your civilian eyes on Odyssey Magazine at all times for all the secrets, and of course, the best in nightclubs, restaurants, bars, shopping and gay happenings!! See you soon, kids!!

LADYBRITNEYBUNNY IS STUPID AND SEEMS TO BE During Bush’s presidency, Britney Spears was asked how she thought he was doing. Her response was something like, “I just think we ought to trust the president.” (At the time, the president was engaged in a baseless, illegal war against Iraq.) Britney is stupid and seems to be on drugs. So what’s your excuse for trusting the government? Now our top news story is chatter which has revealed possible Al Qaeda plots to attack embassies and as a result, we’ve shut many of them down all over the world. I don’t want terror attacks and we should be on guard for legally-obtained chatter, but I also can’t ignore these points. In the same way that Bush manipulated us into a state of panic with the color-coded terror alert system, this chatter comes at a very convenient time. The Obama administration and Congress are unpopular. What perfect timing! The chatter will make us afraid and in fear, we’ll rally behind the government which can protect us from the Muslim boogeyman. Our government will magically become heroes and protectors and not so unpopular all of a sudden. And we’ll forgive the government for its surveillance on US citizens ODYSSEYMAGAZINE.NET • AUGUST 9–22, 2013
ON DRUGS. SO WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE FOR TRUSTING THE GOVERNMENT? which has shocked the nation since it was discovered how heavily the Obama administration was spying on us. With this mounting Al Qaeda threat, we’ll gladly give up more civil liberties just to stay safe. (Safe from a threat that we’re learning of from a government we shouldn’t trust unless we’re Britney Spears.) Republican hawks like Lindsey Graham, the Sissy Hawk, are using this chatter as an excuse to justify the NSA program—actually agreeing with democrats for once. And yes, it’s easy for obstructionist republicans to reach across the aisle and agree with them when democrats start acting like republicans. Obama’s a specialist in this field. As Glenn Greenwald pointed out: “And so, here we are in the midst of, you know, one of the most intense debates and sustained debates that we’ve had in a very long time in this country over the dangers of excess surveillance, and
suddenly an administration that has spent two years claiming that it has decimated al-Qaeda decides that there is this massive threat that involves the closing of embassies and consulates throughout the world.” I hope there isn’t a threat at all. But if there is a real threat, anyone who exploits it is a low-down skunk. This seems like it could be a bipartisan coalition of skunks in both parties designed to trick us. And if we were truly worried about stopping terrorism, maybe we should stop creating generations of terrorists who arise directly as a result of US foreign policy. You don’t wage illegal wars like the one in Iraq and send drones to bomb innocent children without serious repercussions for decades to come. They’ll pop up at 9/11, at the Pentagon, on airlines and at marathons in Boston. Unless we stop the US foreign policy which creates more of them.
Hey now, kittens! Come over here and let me yell at you for a minute about some hot new things happening in the mean streets of West Hollywood. First up is a fresh’n’fancyfree new night at Micky’s every Tuesday from 10pm-2am! What do you get when you mix a pack of lawless, f*ck the rules drag and burlesque entertainers with the beats of resident DJ Johnny Jewel, and my particular brand of Quirk‘n‘Twerk hosting on the mic? You get WHORE HAUS! Helmed by punk rock mistress of the night Saint Peter D’vil, Whore Haus embodies her noholds-barred approach to just plain old having a good time. Come as you are or how you want to be. Her tagline of “No gender, no rules, no religion” sums it all up perfectly. DJ Johnny Jewel consistently crafts the perfect soundtrack to the Freak show, displaying quite a knack for knowing just what his crowd needs to hear to take the party to the next level. Ranging everywhere from old-school punk to modern pop to industrial to everywhere in between, he’s got my vote for President. The rotating cast of performers rounds out the night quite nicely. Varying from theater trained to punk rock “I’m going to roll on the floor and make you eat it” to
burlesque hotties to classic drag performance, we’ve got something for everyone. Next on my list is one of my favorite new shows: Drag Happy Hour at Lola’s, every Sunday starting at 4pm. Hosted by Misty Violet, she brings her brand of accidentally on purpose dumb girl humor to the table and it works every time. Misty seems to never be quite sure what the words coming out of her mouth mean, which results in her malapropos monologues never failing to leave me and the rest of the audience gasping hysterically on the floor. She brings that same “Where Am I” humor to her performances and her “dance moves”. Not saying anything, but you should see what she can do with a shake-weight. Imogene Autry is her weekly powerhouse knock’em’dead performer and co-host. Imogene brings such a light and energy to each of her performances that you simply can’t help but fall in love with her. They bring in a rotating cast of girls, giving the show a lil’ extra dash of spice for sensational pleasure! P.S. Try the Misty Violet Cocktail. I hear it tastes like purple and shame. Stay dangerous, loves! ALLUSIA ALUSIA
THEMUSIC So, I knew that when Pet Shop Boys announced ELECTRIC, their 12th album with super producer Stuart Price, that it would be a masterpiece. Now listening to it over and over, it goes beyond my expectations and takes the group back to the dance floor. They’ve returned with a bangin’ record that haunts. Back in 1986, most of us discovered them in the clubs and they are back on dance floors worldwide with their first single “Vocal”. To say that every one of the 9 songs on the album is good, is underselling it. All of the 9 tracks on “Electric” make for a solid collection that sounds even better when you play it from beginning to end. Stuart has produced an incredible collection of songs that will take them to a new generation of fans if they listen. They are critics’ darling again with the new album, and after being in the music game for almost 30 years, they’ve consistently stayed on course with their music and their showmanship. Their “Electric” tour has been selling out everywhere in Europe and it’s coming to the US in September and October. The LA date is October 12th at LA’s Shrine Auditorium. Get your tickets now before they are sold out. This show has been getting critical praise everywhere they’ve performed. They really never
BY WILL I. HAVETOCHANGEMYNAME went away for this reviewer as Pet Shop Boys have always kept me interested in everything they do and release. “Electric” is them being on top of their game. So in case you didn’t hear, Cher went to Rasputin and created such a stir that queens were losing their minds (in a good way) when it was announced that Cher would be appearing (not performing) at Rasputin, Luke Nero and Andres Rigal’s Saturday night party. Chad Michaels was hired to perform for her majesty and Shangela did a number too. In case you did not make it, just seeing Cher that close and personal left this reporter kind of in awe of this legend. The crowd there was losing their cottonpicking mind when she entered the club. Her and her entourage watched the performances, and it was so hot in there that Cher almost passed out and left right after the last homage by Chad. Overall the night was magical and Cher, who was really there celebrating her #1 Dance Single, “Woman’s World”, was very pleased to be celebrating with the Gays. “You’ve always been there for me”, she said, as she exited the club and her heartfelt address really seemed very sincere to me. I know she’s an incredible actress, but Cher has always had the Gays to thank for their support… and still does.

BY MRS. HELLO
Okay, hello. Here we are, already more than half way through 2013, and now smack dab in the middle of Summer or what I am calling, The Summer of Stability. This is defined as a time where you find you are doing or beginning to do what it is that you are meant to do; you are with the people you are meant to be with; and you are in the place you are meant to be in. This is underscored by the recognition that you are in harmony with yourself; find you are moving toward peace with yourself; and happy with the blessing of life you have been given. This all falls in line with the very essence of the year 2013, and that essence is peace, love, harmony, and compassion. These aspects are displacing the more frustrating and negative elements that have crowded out the now emerging essence for all. Just the other day, a friend made mention that folks one after another were now stepping right into his life, into his sphere; that all he had to do was to sit there and the most interesting and dynamic individuals were making themselves known to him, all with some contribution to make to his current direction. Imagine, a contribution, not a deduction. It is possible. Read your horoscope. Kiss someone. Clowns to the left. Jokers to the right. After all, you’re all stars. ARIES MAR 21–APR 19: Isn’t it about time you got a goodie or two, after all the energy and work you put into the mix? It would seem that payday is almost upon you. Try to hold your course, and simply guide yourself in for a smooth landing, and this time, be ready to step into your own. Go on, you can do it, it’s okay. MIKE MANNING/THOMAS P. ELLIOTT TAURUS APR 20–MAY 21: Hey sailor, want to have a good time? It is perfectly acceptable, long about now, to go have some fun! Use the satisfaction you should be feeling from the good show, and go show them what’s good. The difference is in the timing. You are always on time, it’s just the time that is wrong. MICHAEL ALIG/CHRIS BROWN ODYSSEYMAGAZINE.NET • AUGUST 9–22, 2013

GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 21: Stand up for what you believe, and believe what you stand for. Use the time now to showcase your convictions, and know that the confidence to take a stand will make one. Even if the masses don’t all nod their heads at once, stand your ground, and know they will come around. And that’s that. NEIL PATRICK HARRIS/MORRISSEY CANCER JUN 22–JUL 22: The most beautiful sound is that of our own name, so no wonder it seems a little flat when others fail to mention you. The tide is changing, however, even though you’re doing this and signing that, there is a spotlight headed in your direction, and as ever, you will be ready for your close-up. JOHNNY MCGOVERN/VIN DIESEL LEO JULY 23–AUG 23: The sun is shining bright from you now, Leo. This is a good time to express what you feel from the heart. In general, these feelings also shine, but into every sunny day, a little rain must fall. Question is: are you the rain maker, or the guy with the umbrella? ALEXIS ARQUETTE/PETER GAITAIN VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 22: You have had a busy day today, and yesterday and tomorrow looks…well, busy. Don’t let a full calendar prevent you from getting more than two scoops of raisins. After all, a balanced diet is what you need to sustain the energy you need now. Be wise and leave the small potatoes alone. MATTHEW PAUL KRUPNICK/ JONATHAN TAYLOR THOMAS LIBRA SEP 23–OCT 23: Living in the moment is a challenge, as sometimes others pull you in one direction or another, but this is summer time, and the living is supposed to be easy, remember? Try to move with a lilt in your step, and if you find you have stepped into confusion, simply excuse yourself, and step back. The future will take care of itself. Enjoy the beauty now. REX REED/ZAC EFRON
SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22: Sometimes the change in the way you do things is better than changing the things that you do. There is a good measure of positive energy that will influx the professional arena for you soon. This will also make a difference in all other aspects of your world. Put your hat on backwards…dashing! JOSHUA MILLER/CALVIN KLEIN SAGITTARIUS NOV 23–DEC 21: A seed of self-doubt could sour your plans which would be a bit of a shame, seeing as you have worked hard to get it right. The effort to rise above it will not be wasted this time, and the key will work, but only when you put it in the correct lock. If family is near, they are dear. Make a call. COLE ESCOLA/NICK STAHL CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20: Lo and behold, what you knew was a bad situation turned out to be, that’s right, a bad situation. Trust in your notions, as even though the rest of your life may get a little full and complicated from time to time, you will always be able to sniff ‘em out. Also, this increases as time goes by. Lend a hand to those who have put you on a pedestal. NICK GRUBER/J. EDGAR HOOVER AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 18: As swift as you are, there may be the feeling of performance anxiety. The key here is to never let them see you sweat, or better yet, don’t sweat it at all. The person closest to you has nothing bad to say, so maybe they are hiding something. Look around the corner. See what is really going on. TREVOR WAYNE/JOHN TRAVOLTA PISCES FEB 19–MAR 20: If others don’t seem interested in what you are doing, ask yourself if in fact you are. It doesn’t seem that the grandiose is really such a good idea, so bring focus down a notch or two, and you might see the end of a project along with the ever so many beginnings. This is the way to your goals. JEFFERY SELF/RIHANNA
