During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter a few years ago, Kevin Spacey made it sound like he’s never going to officially come out about how his tongue gets the tingles for twink ass. But while hosting the Tonys last night, Kevin made jokes about being a permanent resident of the glass closet. I guess Kevin Spacey farting out gay jokes while dressed in Norma Desmond drag (which looked more like low-budget Walter Mercado drag) at the Tonys is the closest he’ll ever get to waving goodbye at fellow polyester wig master John Travolta as he strolls out of the closet.
Kevin opened the Tonys with a long ass, never-ending musical number where he spoofed a bunch of the musical nominees and got hosting advice from past awards show hosts. At one point, Whoopi Goldberg came out of a closet on the set and when Kevin asked her, “Whoopi, how long have you been in that closet?”, she threw a verbal wink by saying, “Well Kevin, it depends on who you asked.” Kevin kept the closet jokes coming when Billy Crystal told him “If all else fails, put on a dress,” and he got into Norma Desmond drag before singing, “I”m coming out…. No, wait, no….”
Some people didn’t laugh at Kevin’s jokes and thought that shit wasn’t not funny, because there he was joking about not coming out, especially during Gay Pride Month. They also think him playing coy about his love of peen is as old as that dusty beaver pelt on his head. One part of me, thought that maybe, just maybe, Kevin’s fresh jokes were his way of laughing at the tricks who say he’s still in the closet since pretty much everyone but my mom (“Kevin Spacey is gay?!” – my mom while watching the Tonys last night) has heard the stories and seen the pictures. And the other part of me didn’t really think about it much since I was too busy protecting my precious ears from the warble that came out of Stephen Colbert’s mouth.
