Princess Kennedy: Dr. Princess of Avondale

Princess Kennedy: Dr. Princess of Avondale
By

On Easter, my friend DJ JORY, who just moved to town from San Francisco, introduced me to his friend Dennis Reynolds. Reynolds and his friend Robin Ballard are the creators of a  homemade soap opera called Avondale. My interest was sparked when Reynolds told me they were interested in having me appear in an episode—even more so when I was told that they filmed Avondale in the Pleasure Palace. … read more

Princess Kennedy: Tour Up Girl

Princess Kennedy: Tour Up Girl
By

When I say “tore up girl,” I’m assuming that you speak homosexual.  In case you don’t, being tore up is when one tells someone else how they looked, or more appropriately how they acted the night before. “Girl, you were TORE UP,” (i.e. you were drunk last night). “Girl, I got tore up last night,” (i.e. fucked—either literally, by a drug deal gone bad or beaten up). “Girl, stop shopping at the DI, you look tore up,” (i.e. cheap and/or disheveled). Essentially, if you’re a mess in any way, you can replace the adjective with “tore up.” … read more

By

The one outlet I cannot seem to break into in SLC is the theater. I was hoping to fill this niche in my life this summer when I received an offer to audition for a show called The Great American Trailer Park Musical that is happening at the Egyptian Theater this fall. I was going to try out for the roles of either the stripper with a past or the fading beauty who was agoraphobic and obsessed with the Ice Capades. I could have played both of these from life experience alone. … read more

You can just imagine my sheer elation when I got a call from one of my good friends Dia Diabolique telling me I was being made an honorary Slippery Kitten for their Halloween show on October 23 at Bar Deluxe.In case you have been living under a rock, the Slippery Kittens are SLC’s premier burlesque troupe. Started by the glamorously fabulous Lorrie Dohoney (aka Miss Lorrie Ann), the Slippery Kittens features some of the hottest talent this side of the Mississippi.

Princess Kennedy: You’re So Busted

Princess Kennedy: You’re So Busted
By

I often find myself wondering if any of my neighbors or friends are convicted felons, rapists, druggies and/or thieves. If only there was some publication that could tell me that I hadn’t heard from Dick or Jane because they were arrested for public intox … If I had children, I would want to know if Mr. Doe, their teacher, was arrested for aggravated sexual abuse of a child. My God, it’s our lucky day, because there is such a magazine and you can find it for only a buck at over 200 locations from Provo to Ogden! … read more

Princess Kennedy: A KRCL Christmas

Princess Kennedy: A KRCL Christmas
By

All I want for kwanzukka is my own fucking radio show on KRCL. I have a feeling that I am one of at least a hundred douchebags to send off such a request. I’m sure that in the talentless pool, few stand out who would make awesome on-air contributions. What I’m finding in the close relationship I’ve been forging with the home-spun station, is that it’s what’s on the inside of the future hopeful and what he or she can contribute that is going to matter. … read more

Princess Kennedy: Tranadu

By

How does one go about defining the glory that is Xanadu? It came out when I was about 10-years-old—a time in history when roller rinks replaced discothèques and leg warmers were the height of fashion. Xanadu captured the effects of Tron, the moves of Flash Dance and completely bastardized the late ‘70s punk scene of London with a soundtrack of Olivia Newton-John, the Bee Gees and ELO—cutting-edge electronic musicians at the time. … read more

Princess Kennedy: Stupid Cupid

By

It’s here! That wonderful time of year, when couples are forced to show their undying love for each other through overpriced bouquets of flowers, vomit-inducing quips by Hallmark and obligatory boxes of chocolates. I’ve kept it no secret that I’d rather lose a limb than be coupled, but what I hate more is feeling bad about it. As I’ve said, my opposition to relationships comes from my poor choice in partners—my last boyfriend was a porn actor and the one before him was a male prostitute. … read more

Back in the day, I worked as a go-go dancer at a club in San Francisco called Litter Box. The DJ was none other than the amazing Nature Boy, and he made sure that his go-go clan was made up of the most beautiful freaks of the underground scene. On my first night, I shared a go-go box with a beautiful redhead wearing a floor-length, sky blue 70s Grecian-style dress whom I later came to know as Ms. Ana Matronic, who made me realize that real girls could be drag queens, too. … read more

Princess Kennedy: Fur Is a Drag

Princess Kennedy: Fur Is a Drag
By

“Fur is a Drag” is a nationwide event to raise awareness of animal cruelty through drag queen lip syncs and a fashion show. “‘Fur is a Drag’ is a fun way to bring attention to the violent and bloody fur trade. We want people to realize that there’s nothing cool or glamorous about animals being anally electrocuted, having their necks snapped or having the fur ripped off their backs while still conscious,” straight edge activist and PETA employee Matt Bruce told me regarding the event. … read more
