Yeah, we’re fans of transdisciplinary artist Justin Vivian Bond, so we spent a little more time with V (JVB’s pronoun of choice) at the Logo studios this week, and found out that Diane Sawyer’s infamously boozy 2012 presidential election night coverage was the inspiration for the Drunk News series. Diane just recently “denied” that she was drunk in an Harper’s Bazaar interview with hard hitting reporter gal Rita Wilson.
Also heard that V — whose new perfume has just come out! — wants to host a morning show on Logo… all liquored up like Kathie Lee and Hoda on the last hour of the Today Show, of course.
Take a look at the video of our chat with V above, and in case you haven’t seen them, below is a recent episode of the hilarious Drunk News.
Finally, since we love Justin, we’re again plugging the new Joe’s Pub shows — MX America — starting this weekend! If you’re here in NYC this weekend, or the next two weekends, pick up your tickets at the Joe’s Pub site.
