John Leguizamo comes to Dallas this week

John Leguizamo is a straight guy who effortlessly plays gay — and I mean uber-gay, like in To Wong Foo — with reckless abandon. He’s in town this weekend, and our friends over at TheaterJones have an interview with him. You can read it on, and even participate in a ticket giveaway.

Here’s an excerpt:

Never one to shy away from putting his life out there as art, he wrote his autobiography Pimps, Hos, Playa Hatas and All the Rest of My Hollywood Friends in 2006, and has gone on the record talking about some of those Hollywood types, some of which is not flattering. That’s what he does in Ghetto Klown, which is making the Texas rounds this month.

After receiving pseudo-tweets galore, we finally have a winner for those Katy Perry tickets

Thanks to all of you who responded to our Katy Perry/Robyn ticket giveaway. The winning pseudo-tweet belonged to Jonathon with the following:

My Teenage Dream was for the Prom King to ditch the California girl so I could get his heart racing in my skin tight jeans!

We enjoyed reading your teenage dreams, but the winner was selected at random by our very own intern, Draconis von Trapp. Since we didn’t want you to be upset at any of us (mostly me), I asked Drake to pick a number.

Congrats, Jonathon! Have fun tonight.
