We Talk To…

Sheryl Lee Ralph Loverboy

Although Loverboy may now be happily based on the east coast of Spain, there was a time when we would be down at the Eagle in Vauxhall, every Sunday night for Horsemeat Disco – the best night in London. And a staple of that very institution was Sheryl Lee Ralph and her anthem ‘In The Evening.’ […]

Skunk anansie Loverboy

It’s been 22 years since Skunk Anansie stormed their way into the charts with their debut smash Paranoid & Sunburnt, and today their politically charged lyrics are just as relevant ever.  As they embark on their European tour, Daniel S. Bahrami caught up with Skunk Anansie front-woman, Skin, to a talk about women in music, […]

Lady Gaga Superbowl

Many many many years ago when Loverboy was just a twink of a gay, we were partial to hitting up London’s G-A-Y on a Saturday night, but sadly it had to leave the legendary Astoria and move to Heaven due to property prices. Cunts. But it was during this transitional period when an equally young Lady […]

Joanna Cassidy Loverboy

Bladerunner’s Zhora, Six Feet Under’s Margaret Chenowith and even Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead’s Rose – let’s be honest your faves could never. Yes, it’s fair to say Joanna Cassidy has taken on some truly iconic roles. Currently appearing in Bravo’s terrific Odd Mom Out, Loverboy caught up with her to discuss narrowly missing […]

Muna Loverboy

Loverboy hasn’t been this excited about a band since poor Javine lost out to Sarah’s bum note for a place in Girls Aloud. But MUNA really are everything we need from a band in 2017. They reference The Craft, produce synthy pop gems, are outspokenly queer and even have a penchant for Mariah in drag. If […]

Brent Corrigan Sean Paul Lockhart Loverboy

Last year saw the release of James Franco’s new film King Cobra – based on the life of Brent Corrigan. But four years ago, when Loverboy was just a little blog named The Back Building, we got the inside scoop on what really happened from the man himself…Ever since he first exploded on to the […]

Ruth Pointer Loverboy

Life can be very funny sometimes. One day you’re listening to ‘Dare Me’ – one of the world’s greatest songs – and the next you’re interviewing one of the iconic ladies behind it! But besides making songs that belong in every drag queen’s repertoire, The Pointer Sisters were involved in LGBT rights from the get-go, hanging […]

Costello Tagliapietra Loverboy

Here at Loverboy we like to think we’ve seen it all. But it seems sometimes even we are capable of having our wigs snatched and really that is the beauty of the job. For when we discovered that the beary, burly, handsome duo that is Jeffrey Costello & Robert Tagliapietra, were the darlings of famed ice queen, […]
