Broad Sheet: My Crazy Girlfriend's 'Go Eff Yourself' and Other Great Things to Listen To Now

A Xena: Warrior Princess stuntwoman meets Rosario Dawson in hell, Patricia Field gets an award, and Betty Black sings of the "Futility of Love" in this week's can't-miss, female-centric entertainment highlights.

 

 

5. VIDEO: Betty Black's "Fatality of Love" 

Betty Black, the brainchild of musician Sylvia Black (who's also lead vocalist for New York-based dark electronic pop outfit KUDU, and a collaborator with Black Eyed Peas, Moby, Kelis, Spank Rock, Télépopmusik and so many others), is still riding high on the release of her latest album, Bad Weather. Her newest video, released this week, "Fatality of Love," is a smoldering and kaleidoscopic mess that's as fun, gritty, and seductive as all the others. We can't stop watching. (Plus you can now get a whole EP of remixes of the song.) 

 

 

 

4. DVD: Mr. Angel

As a transgender porn star, Buck Angel has made a name for himself in the world of adult entertainment as “the man with the pussy.” This distinction has led Angel, who has undergone hormone replacement therapy but not genital surgery, to be interviewed by prominent talk show hosts like Maury Povich, Howard Stern, and Tyra Banks, with whom he shares his unique and oft-controversial voice as a trans advocate (“I love my vagina,” he famously told Banks). In the documentary Mr. Angel, which was filmed over the course of six years and has just been released on DVD, director Dan Hunt probes deeper within the story of Buck Angel, revealing his past as troubled youth struggling with gender identity, and his rise to become a pioneer in the porn industry and his quest now to be a sexual health educator. There's a bonus too in that his wife, queer body modification artist Elayne Angel, appears throughout, and there are also interviews with LGBT authors including Dan Savage and Tristan Taormino. 


 

 

 

3. FILM: Raze

If you are not yet totally crushed out on stuntwoman-turned-action-star Zoë Bell, I'm betting you will be after you see Raze, a slyly subversive update on the classic women-in-prison flick. In it, she plays Sabrina, a woman who  is mysteriously abducted and then finds herself in an underground lair, forced to do battle with other innocents for the amusement of unseen spectators. Each of these reluctant warriors has something to lose, but only one will remain when the game is over, in what looks like a pretty relentlessly violent film. I'm not so much a violence-lover, but Bell, who has the physicality of a real-life warrior (or a Marine) began her career as the stunt double for Lucy Lawless in the lesbian fave, Xena: Warrior Princess, and then worked as Uma Thurman’s stunt double on Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and 2. So she's got lezzie cred. Here's the trailer to the film, which comes out January 10, 2014, and also stars a bevy of our fave actresses including Rosario Dawson, Tracy Thoms, and Sherilyn Fenn.

 

 

 

 

2. AWARDS: Patricia Field inducted into the Ballroom Hall of Fame

Celebrities and artists recently came together in celebration of W New York’s Legends month, a photographic exhibition and charity initiative celebrating the vitality of the New York house ballroom culture where gay and transgender men and women come together in high-spirited late-night pageants. Legendary lesbian fashion guru Patricia Field was inducted into The Ballroom Hall of Fame the same night as well. Generally "legend" status in the ballroom community, "should take about 10 years and is based on an individual's progressive wins, impact and contributions," says Jack Mizrahi, a leading figure in the New York and U.S. Ballroom scene. Who knows what Field did to garner the honor. But, the now-open to the public exhibit, curated by Gerard H. Gaskin, and featuring photos from his upcoming award-winning book Legendary, recognized as one of the largest bodies of work dedicated to the evolution of the New York Ballroom scene, is a must-stop if you're in New York. Where, of course, Patricia Field, was indeed already a legend in our minds.

 

 

 

1. VIDEO: My Crazy Girlfriend’s "Go F**k Yourself"

The band's name is My Crazy Girlfriend, and they're a new Los Angeles phenom, but it might be a bit prescient to combine that title with their video for their awesome new single (and major label debut), "Go F**k Yourself." Think quirky hooks, genre-crossing hip-hop hop lyrics, and a frontwoman with some beautifully propulsive pipes. Oh, and you know, a song that perfectly captures what you want to say to every about-to-kick-her-to-the-curb ex of yours. There may be dudes in the band but this is the perfect dyke drama song.
