There's a Fine Line Between Telling the Truth and Talking Trash
Gay on the high seas
Depp's gay pirate fantasies, Boy
George gets trashy and queens
terrorize the Big Easy
DISH HAS A CERTAIN LOVE OF THE SEA,
especially when it involves cute sailors,
but there's something especially hot
about that long-held pirate fantasy Throw
JOHNNY DEPP into the mix, and that
midnight dream becomes downright
Depp doesn't shy from making a gay
connection with his infamous characterization of Captain Jack Sparrow from 2003's
"Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of
the Black Pearl."
In an interview in Rolling Stone, he
more than suggested that his fey
portrayal comes from a willingness to
enjoy the boys of the sea.
"I liked the idea of [Jack] being
ambiguous," Depp told the magazine.
"Women were thought to be
bad luck on ships. And
these pirates would
go out for years at a
time. So, you know,
there is a possibility
that one thing might
lead to another.
You're lonely. You
have an extra ration
of rum. 'Cabin boy!'"
Dish can easily
picture the Captain climbing ORLANDO
BLOOM'S mast and hoisting the sail.
Depp will be doing the pirate prance
again in the upcoming "Pirates of the
Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest."
Boy George's dirty job
Talking aU this trash reminds Dish of
BOY GEORGE'S new gig. He'll be
working with the New York City
sanitation department between now and
August hauling trash, according to PR-
inside.com, a site where press releases
are posted for media organizations.
Boy George, born George O'Dowd, was
sentenced by a city judge on Tuesday, June
27, to five days of community service with
the trash picker-uppers. If the pop star
doesn't complete his five days of service by
August 28, he could face jail time.
"You have to do the community service,"
Judge Anthony Ferrara told George in
court. "It's up to you whether you make it
an exercise in humiliation
Humility for a
man who helped
create "Taboo," an
musical about his life
This whole drama
stems from a nasty
and embarrassing Boy George

gay, especially as the fey Jack Sparrow in 'Pirates
of the Caribbean.' (Photo by Matt Sayles/AP)
incident involving cocaine in Boy
George's apartment. George called in a
burglary report to the police in October
of 2005, but when the police arrived to
check out his apartment, they found a
stash of cocaine.
Added to the entire mess is a lawsuit
against George and his agent. A Miami,
Fla., HIV/AIDS organization. Care
Resource, is suing the pair for backing
out of a contract. George was scheduled
to be a guest DJ for the 21st annual White
Party but backed out of the deal after his
October arrest. Care Resource is suing for
Drag queens gone berserk
"The drag queens are coming! Lock
your doors! Draw the blinds! Warn your
So it goes apparently in New Orleans
where a roving band of marauding drag
queens is stealing shoes, handbags and
other girly accoutrement from local
shops. The New Orleans City Business
weekly newspaper reported the event
with alarmingly florid language.
" In the ensuing weeks, the gang of
transvestites continued their reign of
terror," staff writer Richard Webster writes.
Robyn Lewis, owner of Dark Charm
fashion store for women, said there are
thieving queens, but it's not nearly that
"We're not hiding under our counters
terrorized by a bunch of men in drag,"
Lewis told the Blade. "Journalists!"
However, she did admit to being part
of a local drag-queen phone tree.
Whenever one of the shop owners sees
the bejeweled ladies heading their way he or
she gets on the horn and sounds the alarm.
