Gay Times with the Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears and Baby Daddy


Jake Shears and Baby Daddy give good chest on the new cover of the UK's Gay Times.

They also get a nice write-up in London's Evening Standard:

"Jake, 33, was raised on San Juan Island, just north of Seattle, and came out as gay at school, before telling his parents: ‘Although, if they were surprised by anything, then they were in some deep denial,’ he says. ‘I was a very effusive, verbose, effeminate, wacky kid.’ One early brave turn came during a high school talent show when he sang ‘I Will Always Love You’ in a wig, adopting the persona of ‘Whip Me Houston’. His largely Mormon classmates practically chased him out of town with pitchforks. He met Babydaddy (originally from Lexington, Kentucky) through a classmate while studying journalism at Occidental College in LA. The pair moved to New York where Jake spent a year or two as a go-go dancer and did a cabaret turn as Jason the Amazing Back-Alley Late-Term Abortion, covered in blood and coat hangers. They set up Scissors as a duo before meeting Ana at Knockoff, a Lower East Side cabaret night she was running. They auditioned for a drummer and bass player and Scissor Sisters was born."

Scissor Sisters Have a Kiki: LISTEN


Scissor Sisters tweeted the shot above with Sharon Needles (who joined them on stage) from their concert last night at the Bowery Ballroom. I was able to catch the show, and the band debuted a few songs from their upcoming album, including 'Let's Have a Kiki', which went down a storm. They premiered it today on Spotify.

Listen to a YouTube copy while it's still up, AFTER THE JUMP...

What's a kiki? “A kiki is a party/for calming all your nerves/We’re spilling tea and dishing just desserts when they deserve.”

Below, blurry iPhone photo by moi.
