For over 20 years, Michael Musto ( the Hunter S. Thompson of snark ) has written the popular entertainment column La Dolce Musto. The outrageous weekly column has pioneered gay issues in celebrity news and politics and has long been a mainstay of pop culture as well as a cutting edge chronicle of the hip and hopeful.
In this fabulous collection, Musto includes a sampling of his star romps, from a hilarious column describing his night out with the Kids in the Hall to a scathing catch-up session with onetime Fellini beauty Anita Ekberg. Along the way, celebs like Sandra Bernhard, Madonna, Lindsay Lohan, and Anderson Cooper provide much juice and dazzle. Also included are biggies, from Brad Pitt to the Hiltons.
The first openly gay gossip columnist, Musto encouraged closeted celebrities to come out for years before it became okay to address performers' sexuality in the daily columns. He was reviled, called a gay Nazi by Rosie O'Donnell, but ultimately vindicated. Included are his views against then-closeted Rosie, and Ellen DeGeneres.
