Tom Cruise Did Not Attend Gay Artist Party with Gay Cowboy

Nor will he be appearing in any book named after a gay disco anthem.

Cruise_gay_cowboyThe NYDN's Ben Widdicombe reports on a chat he had recently with the Village People's original gay cowboy Randy Jones, who recently sold his memoir Macho Man to a publisher:

"Jones had a story about meeting Cruise in 1982, when the young actor's most notable film was 'Taps.'...'Tom and I had the same management company at the time,' Jones told me at the new Bowery hot spot Antik. 'I met him at a party Andy Warhol threw for Peter Gatien's Limelight [nightclub offshoot] in Atlanta.' To hear Jones tell the story, it was quite a party. But after calls went out to a spokeswoman and attorney for the 'Mission: Impossible' star yesterday, the book's editor assured me that Cruise's name had been removed from the final version."

  1. And the Scientology/Cruise "intimidation through litigation to hide dirty little secrets" tactic goes on and on and working as efficiently as ever.

    Surprise, surprise, surprise!

  2. I met cowboy Jones at a party in college. He struck me as a little strange, kind of stuck in the past. I was also surprised because he didn't know what special K was (this was about 16 years ago, when I actually knew people who used drugs). He and I talked for a while and he propositioned me, but I said no. A friend of mine, however, got fucked by the Indian! And he was inordinately proud of that fact...
