Suspenders and a bra
I wish I've been a girlie,
Just like my dear mama!"

"If the only requirement for being on a show is waiting in a line for six days, Ian Bernardo will appear on it. He first appeared on American Idol in a T-shirt with his name on it, and didn't even try to sing. Then he showed up on So You Think You Can Dance and didn't even try to dance. He acts like a bitchy queen and looks like Edward G. Robinson's face was genetically modified to create a blowjob assembly line, but he's such an offensive caricature that I don't think he's actually gay. He acts like an eight-year-old whose only experience with gay culture is the He-Man cartoon from the 80s decided to pretend to be gay for Halloween."

Mom: Can we dye your hair blonde? (excited gasp) Can you wear a neckerchief?!
Son: I'm gay, not TV gay.
