Superdiva Ann Magnuson
demonstrating pride in pussy, awesome creative femaleness
& ultrasonic smart humor
Wake up, Twilight Generation! Not only is the Twilight entertainment franchise teaching you toxic lessons in love that'll help lead you to bad relationships and full-blown love junkieness (check this excellent recent post by Libby Cudmore about it here: No Valentines for Twilight Generation ) -- but now one of the stars has publicly voiced his squeamishness and distaste for female genitalia. Don't take it. Don't buy into it. Just say no to self-hatred and cultural misogyny, however disguised -- or not.
Here's the link to the TMI interview where 23-year-old actor Robert Pattinson unwisely let his misogyny rip: Robert Pattinson really hates vaginas [Interesting to note he is currently the same age as Lady Gaga, who takes as a matter of pride standing up for sexual fluidity and LGBT rights. Take a moment to juxtapose the female representations of Bella and Gaga, if you will. Let alone our loose-lipped vamp.]
To help combat Pattinson's damaging message, I've summoned the brilliant, eternally relevant Renaissance woman Ann Magnuson, still going strong. Pulled one from the vault to remind us all how to celebrate the power of pussy, embrace being women. And conduct ourselves in love and relationships with both swagger and grace.
I remember going to a release party for this vid decades ago -- was it at Les Deux? - and exulting in the presence of Ann, the no-holds no-genders-barred vibe. Years before, I'd championed the electrifying, uber-sexy Ann to play the Mrs. Robinson character in "A Night In The Life of Jimmy Reardon" with the enviable task of seducing up-and-comer River Phoenix, then a 16-year-old golden boy.]
Take a listen and see if it doesn't have an instant superdiva effect. [Note: You must be 18 or over to view.]Bongwater's classic "Power of Pussy"
Now wrench those vamp teeth from your necks, fling the glittery gaunt stalker from your tail, and rock on!
