This Ani Di Franco
animated music video for “Captain Cameltoe,” off Cho’s new album Cho Dependent
, is something you’ll appreciate fully the more stoned you get. (JK! Don’t do drugs, kids!) But I can’t say my 16-year-old self isn’t thrilled two of her real-life superheroes finally teamed up as Captain Cameltoe and Righteous Babe. And who doesn’t need to hear “I’m a freaking rock star superhero bitch” on repeat?! New personal mantra, what what! [MargaretCho.com

“I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) … Why did Bristol do ‘Dancing with the Stars‘? That the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it. Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she ‘owed’ it to her to do ‘DWTS’ so that ‘America would fall in love with her again’ and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way.”
— Comedian/ex-”DWTS” competitor Margaret Cho served up a steaming heap of hot gossip on her blog on Monday. It seems that Mama Grizzly made her cub do the cha-cha as a stealthy PR move. Now, I’m not callin’ Margaret a liar or anything, but this sounds coo-coo bananas for even the Palin family. But Margaret Cho apparently thinks it was true enough to risk re-creating The Godfather, Alaskan-style: “Now I am scared I am going to wake up with a decapitated moose head in my bed.” [TheWrap] Keep reading »

Margaret Cho, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. There’s your 1994 show “All-American Girl.” Your stand-up comedy concerts like “I’m The One That I Want” and “Notorious C.H.O.” Your shows “The Cho Show,” and most recently, “Drop Dead Diva.” I could go on, but I don’t want to embarrass you with your own awesomeness.
Whether you caught her in the ’90s or in the aughties, Cho is inescapable — and undeniably funny. This summer, she’s releasing her first album of “comedy music,” Cho Dependent, on which she got to perform with the likes of Fiona Apple and Ani DiFranco. Lucky bitch!
Cho was kind enough to take some time out of her busy schedule to talk to us about stand-up comedy, writing songs about homicidal ex boyfriends and camel toe. Keep reading »
“It’s very weird, isn’t it, how rock and roll is very homophobic in a lot of ways. Women are given a lot of freedom to define their sexuality. I mean, Lady Gaga is able to pretty much do anything she wants. And Madonna, before her, was free to play around with gender roles. I don’t think the same flexibility exists for men, even though some of the greatest rock stars have been pretty androgynous, like Freddie Mercury or David Bowie — although Mercury wasn’t really out and Bowie was straight. There’s definitely a double standard.”

Only Margaret Cho could make history as the first woman ever to grace the cover of Unzipped Magazine, the so-called magazine for men who love men. She appears on the cover along with porn star Ricky Sinz, in bondage gear. “Margaret Cho transcends sexual stereotypes,” said Dustin Tyner, Group Publisher for Unzipped Media. “The energy and sex appeal Margaret and Ricky bring to the article is amazing. The photos are electric, and we’re thrilled to have two iconic sexual adventurers on the cover of our ‘Hot Issue.’” Of course, Cho finds a way to make this somehow oddly funny and sexy at the same time. This is why Cho is my hero. [Unzipped] Keep reading »
