reality, as it tends to remind you that just because your neighbor is
hot, she's not lesbian too. Fiction is always nice because it gives
you the courage to walk up to her and ask her out even if reality is
telling you she's straight, married and has four children. ;)
Oh, and as for the "popular lesbian" thing, this particular
performance was made before Quidam, which was '99. I can't say I
looked to see when it had been filmed because I was off in my own
little world by the time the credits rolled... But I suppose the
point is that it was a very brave performance for it being before the
pro-gay situation we've got now. (I noticed a little later that, in
fact, I hadn't seen a single act with a male and a female on stage
together - except when they all took their final bows - And the
costumes were very rainbow.)

Just because of those commercials."
P.S. A belated happy New Year to everyone.
