BTWF: Billy Porter in Shake, Rattle and Roll: An American Love Story
June 11th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Billy Porter. [ Comments: none ]


(starts at 19:00 in)

Before Billy Porter was a living legend, he was playing one (Little Richard) in Shake, Rattle and Roll: An American Love Story. How much fun is it to watch the 29-year-old shake, rattle and role in that 1999 movie?

Everything’s coming up roses for Billy Porter!
June 10th, 2019 under Billy Porter. [ Comments: none ]


We saw a lot at the Tonys, but we did not the best part of Broadway’s magical night. During commercial breaks, James Corden asked the people in the audience to sing some of Broadway’s biggest numbers. Ben Platt sang Tomorrow from Annie and Billy Porter belted out Everything’s Coming up Roses from Gypsy with his own special flair.

While he has had a grandiose career on the Great White Way, his career had a new spotlight shined on it when he was cast in Pose. Since then he has been posing for the cameras at several events and standing out with his one-of-a-kind looks. His fashion style was the most talked about at the Oscars and the Met Gala. Yesterday, the curtain literally came down on him when he wore a cape made from the Kinky Boots’ curtain with his Celestino Couture suit. He won the Tony for playing Lola in that musical, so the accessory was fitting for the big awards show.

What was even more fitting is his impromptu performance of Everything’s Coming up Roses, which it is for him. Listening to the improved jokes he made during the song, CBS better have taken notice. He is what the Tonys need to make them so Broadway again and he should be asked to host next year. Who wouldn’t tune in for his pizzazz?

Until then we can watch him on Pose which is back for season 2 tomorrow of FX.
