"Oddly enough, I’m actually not a huge gay marriage supporter. I personally don’t want to get married but I think that any law or amendment to the constitution that deals with sex and love should just be banned in general. I don’t think any government should encroach on what goes on in the bedroom at all. Frankly, if you want to marry a dog, why don’t you go ahead and marry a dog, I don’t care. I’m a complete libertarian and so I really disagree with it."

    i cant stand rufus. he's always walking around my nieghborhood in brooklyn and you can hear him a mile away with his whiny bitchy voice. i hope he trips and falls on his face today.



  13. 13

    Do your research before you post something like this, Perez.
    Rufus is gay in real life.
    Just so you know.



  14. 14

    singer and idiot? guys a fuckin genius



  15. 15

    So he does support it? Since he said:

    "I think that any law or amendment to the constitution that deals with sex and love should just be banned in general. I don’t think any government should encroach on what goes on in the bedroom at all. "

    Just because you dont agree with the way he phrased his opinon does not mean you should call him an idiot. In a strange somewhat apathetic way hes on the same side as your cause.



  16. 16

    but he is gay…………. ?



  17. 17

    PEREZ, WHY WOULD YOU CALL HIM AN IDIOT WHEN HE SAYS IT IS OK TO MARRY YOUR DOG?
    REALLY, I DON'T GET YOU SOMETIMES!

    Re: Milky Milky-Ambassador to Canada – ME TOO!!!! MUST BE IN THE WATER!!



  19. 19

    Why is he an idiot for stating an opinion? It's not like he says he's against gay marriage. Shit, he just doesn't feel that passionate about something he has no interest in…big fucking deal. Not all gays have to take up the cause.

    Shit, live and let live you self-righteous fuck head.

    Oh, Happy Holiday's too.

  22. 22

    how dare you perez! you're not understanding the principle behind his statement.
    in an ideal country, there shouldn't be any laws banning or controlling what marriage is or anything dealing with love/relationships at all

    i agree with him, but i understand that we don't live in an ideal country. so, yes, if we have laws defining marriage, the laws should include everyone and not discriminate.



  23. 23

    what's your beef with the comment?



  24. 24

    PEREZ I AM GOING TO KICK YOUR ASS!!



  25. 25

    BRILLIANT. not everyone agree's with gay marriage perez. at least he said that the government shouldnt interfere with any type of marriage. you are an idiot



  26. 26

    ACTUALLY I DON'T WANT TO GET MARRIED…JUST WANT THE RIGHT. I CAN'T GET MARRIED CAUSE THEN I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO JUSTIFY FUCKING AROUND….AND THERE'S A LOT OF HOT ASS OUT THERE!!



  27. 27

    I wouldn't call him an idiot. Libertarians believe in individual rights without goverment interference. He still supports equality. He's just saying that the government shouldn't have a say in whether anyone (gay, straight, or otherwise) can or cannot get married.



  28. 28

    why is he an idiot again?

    Re: lol_sparta

    Ahh I get it now after reading your comment and reading the story again

    "Oddly enough, I’m actually not a huge gay marriage supporter. I personally don’t want to get married"

    It makes sense now…hes saying oddly enough..bc he is gay and its probably weird not to support a cause that involves his lifestyle…and thats why hes says "I personally don't want to get married"…Perez you are the only idiot here. Learn to read between the lines. Its sad you supposedly went to a really great school[i refuse to believe that lol] and you aren't even good at writing your own gossip rag…the lowest form of Journalism.

    Just because you disagree with him doesn't mean he's an idiot. He just has a different opinion on the issue, which he's entitled to have.

  35. 35

    whats the big deal? Hell i dnot support gay marriage eithe! ur the idiot here! it was an actual decent comment! thumbs up for rufus



  36. 36

    I think Rufus needs to get laid…

  37. Laury says – reply to this


    37

    Rufus Wainwright is NOT an idiot. So he doesn't support gay marriage. Big fucking deal. Why do gay people want to get married so much anyway? Why can't they just be content with being in love? Rufus is right. Laws should never be about sex and love.



  38. 38

    Why does this comment make him an idiot. He has an opinion, it seems that anyone with a different opinion then you is slandered and that is both sad and pathetic. He doesn't agree with marriage– good for him— neither do i– whether you are gay or straight why cant you love somebody without having a label thats true equality



  39. 39

    well, posse peeps, it's been a blast. i am O-U-T.
    see ya this evening!!



  40. 40

    Marriage is a Religious Act. Government is not to make ANY law concerning Religion! Government should make NO laws concerning marriage, period, whether gay or straight. Marriage shouldn't be legislated any more than Baptism or Sunday School. Allow Churches to perform Gay Marriages if they choose!

  42. 42

    He actually does have a point. The whole concept of marriage is based on different religious practices anyway and therefore, the government should have never interfered in the first place.

    But I don't expect you to actually listen or recognize/adhere to logic Perez, so never mind.



  43. 43

    Duh, Perez… he's not saying the gay marriage shouldn't be legal, he's saying that government doesn't have a right to tell people what they should do with their persona lives.

    He's actually a supporter of equal rights, so I'd take back my comment if I were you.



  44. 44

    Also the part you made bold…he is using Hyperbole. He is exaggerating to make his point on how ridiculous he thinks that Prop. is…Gosh Perez did you ever take an english class in college?



  45. 45

    Wow, way to take what he said completely the wrong way, and put emphasis where it doesn't belong, trying to turn what he said into what Perez wants it to say. God, can't he read the content he's posting and writing about anymore? He's really been striking out lately.



  46. 46


  47. 47

    puto?



  48. 48

    so go marry teddy perez



  49. 49

    I guess he doesn't want this fag (me) buying his music! I should put it in my retirement fund anyways! He's tired anyways.



  50. 50

    His commentary should be interpreted to mean that the government has no place in a person's bedroom, not that those rights aren't protected. I agree; we shouldn't need a law protecting gay marriage because it shouldn't be threatened. We only need a law because it is barred (which is the government invading our bedrooms). Unless you are harming somebody else, the government has no place intervening



  51. 51

    I'm not sure he's an idiot, but he's definitely a pompous, self-absorbed, delusional prick.

    I personally like his sister Martha's music much better…



  52. 52

    It's not nice to call people idiots…you idiot!



  53. 53

    PEREZ HILTON IS A SPECIAL ED STUDENT BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY HE DOES NOT COMPREHEND WHAT HE IS READING….

    HE IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT HAVE RIGHTS TO DICTATE WHAT A PERSON/HUMAN DOES IN THEIR OWN BEDROOM. PLUS IF PEREZ WERE TO READ THIS ABOUT 3 MORE TIMES HE WOULD HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING. BUT I WILL BREAK IT DOWN LIKE THIS.

    THE DUDE DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE IDEA OF MARRIAGE, THAT INCLUDES MARRIAGE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN OR A MAN AND ANOTHER MAN, OR EVEN A WOMAN AND ANOTHER WOMAN……

    HENCE HE BASICALLY SAYS…PEOPLE IN GENERAL SHOULD NOT GET MARRIED…..people give perez some slack he is SPECIAL ED, YOU KNOW CAME OFF THE YELLOW BUS EVERY MORNING WITH THE REST OF THE RETARDS….



  54. 54

    He is not an idiot! Why do gay people have to be so radical about marriage anyway? Nobody is persecuting gays anymore! Gay people are so accepted now, can't anyone see that???



  55. 55

    Not every gay person believes in gay marriage! Get over it already!



  56. 56

    He's an idiot for disagreeing with you? I guess that makes you a bigot..



  57. 57

    As usual, you taken things way out of context. If you look at the line right above it, it says:

    I don’t think any government should encroach on what goes on in the bedroom at all.

    Maybe that part should have been highlighted instead of the "dog" part…



  58. 58

    I get what he's saying. Marriage in general is an idiotic institution and no government should tell people what they can and cannot do as far as their love lives go.



  59. 59

    He was actually making a good point. I agree with some libertarian beliefs. He was saying the government shouldn't have laws concerning what we do with our sexual lives. And he's right.

  60. buck says – reply to this


    60

    he said " actually i'm not a huge gay marriage supported"….. sounds like an Obama supporter than.



  61. 61

    Ha! You're GREEN with envy, Perez. What? Pissed that Rufus isn't a talentless, empty-headed, tantrum-throwing quasi-celebrity activist like you?

    You shouldn't hold it against him; maybe he just doesn't have time, you know, what with his being the greatest songwriter on planet earth.

    Back to your dog you go.



  62. 62

    Re: jimmyjazz – You've got that right! The most important thing about any marriage these days is pre-nup and divorce. Who gets left with the care and feeding of the poodles? As an intelligent gay (not pervez), I learned long ago how to look out for myself, and that variety is the spice of life.



  63. 63

    He's an idiot because he doesn't support gay marriage? He doesn't believe government should have any say in marriage at all. He's entitled to his opinion, and he didn't say anything that I found offensive, at all.

  64. fchon says – reply to this


    64

    WHy is Rufus an idiot?! PEREZ you need to realize that not everyone voted NO on Prop 8. Don't be upset because Rufus is not an advocate of gay rights. You can be what you are and who you are and not have to take a stand over every little thing. Get over it. Have your own beliefs and STOP JUDGING OTHERS who don't share your same convictions!

  66. ebee says – reply to this


    66

    idiot?? why????



  67. 67

    How does this statement make him an idiot? It's wrong and hypocritical to bully someone because they don't share your opinion. He clearly is opposed to goverment dictating who may or may not marry. Take a closer look at this quote. All he's saying is that everyone should be equally free to make their own choices regarding love and relationships without the government's involvement.



  68. 68

    Funny Perez how everyone except you and a one other gay person on here #49, actually READ the comment. There's really nothing here to even interpret. He personally doesn't believe in gay marriage, but he doesn't believe government should dictate what you do in your life. DUH! You MAY have went to college, but did you actually graduate? Just because you have some issue with him, doesn't make him an idiot.



  69. 69

    Looks like most people agree with Rufus. I adore him and love his music. I think that Perez needs to be more open minded. I support gay marriage but am not sure it's the right thing for me. To each his own, I am full of pride and hopes Perez sees then light.



  70. 70

    I think this was taken out of context. Come on, Perez. Be smarter.



  71. 71

    He's not saying anything negative about gay marriage here. Read between the lines. He is specifying a general Libertarian ideal: no government intervention in social issues.
    "…any law or amendment to the constitution that deals with sex and love should just be banned in general"

    In other words, he is not a gay marriage supporter because he frankly does not agree with governmental involvement in that arena. Don't be so quick Perez. This was an intelligent and neutral comment.

  72. Miauw says – reply to this


    72

    Perez obviously has problems with reading. No problem Perez. You are not the only idiot in the world.



  73. 73

    As a gay man, I'm deeply offended by him. I'm burning all his albums I bought over the years right now which are…. ZERO!!!

    This bitch just got my attention. I'll remember next time to NOT TO BUY WHAT I WASN'T GOING TO BUY ANYWAY BECAUSE HE SUCKS!!!!!



  74. 74

    Why is he an idiot because he doesn't agree with you on gay marriage - that doesn't make him an idiot, he just has a different perspective Perez….thank God we don't all think the same way you do.



  75. 75

    No one should get married! Stay single and be free!



  76. 76

    Re: lol_sparta
    Perez knows that Rufus is gay… for fuck's sake he did a complete re-enactment of Judy Garland's historic performance at Carnegie Hall…
    he is also a self-confessed METH-FREAK
    actually perez is correct for being outraged at this stupid (although talented) fuckhead… does he not understand the struggle for equality worldwide and in the USA is for the SAME rights not anything special that relates only to gay people



  77. 77

    hmmm… I thought Rufus had stopped smoking METH… I GUESS NOT!!!



  78. 78

    Honestly, I don't think its okay to boo his opinion. Marriage is an institution that is fundamentally flawed, regardless of its inclusion or dis-inclusion of people. It may be that marriage is outdated. It was created to keep women subjected to one man for purposes of inheritance (family has its original meaning to do with slaves) so that the father could know that his children were his and pass on private property. Marriage is deeply connected with money inequalities and pushes forward values that I certainly do not agree with. I do believe that everyone should have equal rights, but I also believe that marriage needs restructuring so that it does not privilege married people over single people (lower taxes… why should marriage have anything to do with taxes) and it does not encourage the subjection of women. So, I don't disagree, and I think it would be good to be more open to other opinions. He needs to chill on the dog comment though. And maybe if he could say he is not a marriage supporter in general, because that's what he really means.



  79. 79

    He's not an idiot, he's actually going far beyond the equality fight.

    He is not a gay marriage supporter as well as he's probably not a straight marriage supporter. He seems to believe that no law should tell us who to love, who to fuck and how to do it.

    What's marriage anyway ? If you love someone why should the government give you its blessing ? Plus if no law nor amendment to the constitution deals with sex and love gays wouldn't have to fight for their rights, because their sexual orientation wouldn't be of our (the society, the government) fucking bussiness. And THAT, my dear Perez, is real equality.

    80

    what's that sound? oh yea, it's the sound of an intelligent comment flying over perez's head. and why is everyone that disagrees with you an 'idiot'? immature child.



  81. 81

    Perez, he has a valid point. It's not one of hate, it's one of keeping love and politics seperate. Learn to read.



  82. 82

    Why the "boo" and "idiot" comment? Because he is not following the party line.?The fucking goverment should stay out of people's sex lives, their religious views, and women's bodies. Fuck the right wing.



  83. 83

    Isn't he gay?



  84. 84

    Uhm… you do understand that what he is saying is actually in favor of gay marriage, right? He is saying it shouldn't be something considered different from any sort of marriage - that it shouldn't have any kind of "legal" definition or intervention at all.



  85. 85

    HE IS SOOO RIGHT!! can we just make up another name for gay people that wants to be life partners– & recognized by the law– just not the word marriage… straight people already owned that.. perez u don't like anyone that doesn't agree with your opinion– every one is entitled to theirs– RESPECT.. that's all.



  86. 86

    at least he's not opposed to gay marriage, he just doesnt outright support it

    I LOVE RUFUS WAINWRIGHT!!!



  88. 88

    It is so frustrating when people like you refuse to see the other side of an issue. You are only interested in your own gain - not in learning about the depths of the history behind what you seek. It is still okay to disagree with the majority on a position. And news flash - it doesn't make you homophobic to disagree with the concept of gay marriage. I'm gay and I am opposed for the very reasons stated in the quote. Unlike you, I am comfortable enough with my sexuality that I do not feel the need to justify my views to anybody.



  89. 89

    I was furious to learn this. I've purchased Rufus's material in the past and think the GLTBQ community should consider BOYCOTTING HIS MUSIC going forward. Also, the 18,000+ couples that got married in California - I'm sure wouldn't appreciate being compared to a relationship with a dog.

    All Rufus Wainwright is saying is that we don't need the government telling us what we should do when it comes to marriage. However it is an "unintelligent" (not idiotic) statement because Marriage is a part of the way of life and there are many LAWS that are proposed for married couples in particularly, even getting financial support from the government is easier to get if you are married. In extreme cases marriage can help get men out of a military draft. All the gays care about are equal rights. Right? Equal rights to ummm adopt a baby and for insurance purposes…. Really it's just because of the MONEY! CREAM jajaja



  91. 91

    PEREZ YOU ARE SO DUMB. LEARN TO READ. He's a LIBERTARIAN. HE DOESN'T BELIEVE THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD REGULATE ANYTHING…. INCLUDING MARRIAGE.



  92. 92

    LOVE this man.



  93. 93

    rufus didn't say he was against gays or against gays getting married–he said he was against government getting involved in people's private lives.



  94. 94

    This is an old argument… basically he's saying he doesn't believe in gay marriage because he doesn't believe in marriage at all… and that argument sometimes infuriates those who do, because basically, they might say, 'well, don't get married and stay the hell out of it, then.' And anyone who's been married, gay or otherwise, can assure you that it doesn't have a heck of a lot to do with what goes on in the bedroom, sadly. Incidentally, Is Rufus still giving the entire Eastern Seaboard free admission to his rectum? Man, that thing's had more traffic than the Holland Tunnel/Clay Aiken/Keanu.



  95. 95

    PEREZ YOU JUST DON'T GET POLITICS AND ISSUES RELATING TO SOCIETY. KEEP ENTERTAINING, DON'T GET INVOLVED. EVERYONE DOESN'T TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY AS IT IS BUT THIS IS JUST GETTING YOU NO WHERE.



  96. 96

    Perez. Need to have a word with u. Why is it that you NEVER react to comments posted on your blog. In case of Rufus Wrainwright, you were judgemental. You were WRONG. Admit it, and show me you're not a coward.

  97. epic says – reply to this


    97

    i cant decide whether to YAWN or to CRYYYY oh boy, you are seeing monsters everywhere, aren't you, perez?



  98. 98

    1. Rufus is homosexual.
    2. He's a libertarian, so he doesn't think government should regulate ANYTHING.
    3. There is no need for a constitutional ammendment because there is nothing in the costitution that says anything about marriage…we just need the supreme court to rule that it is constitutional and the states to quit fucking everything up.
    4. Rufus isn't an idiot. I'm not the hugest fan, but if you even listen to any of his songs, you'll know he's not an idiot.



  99. 99

    I 100% agree with whoever this is. The government should have nothing to do with sexual or romantic relations of ANYONE. By anyone, I mean from the second you have those feelings to the day you die. Unless someone is forcefully taking away someone else's choice and free will, or violently tortures them into sexual or romantic relationships, then it's not anyone else's business or concern.



  100. 100

    Hi Mario, this is the first and the last time I will write in your blog. YOU ARE WRONG. Rufus has always supported equality and still he still does. You know that. So apologize for your insult. BE A MAN!
