CELEBRITY CORRESPONDENT<br />

TAYLOR DAYNE<br />

“WELCOME BACK TO LONG ISLAND”<br />

Singer/songwriter, actress, author Taylor Dayne returns to Long Island, New York,<br />

where she first performed 35 years ago. She will be taking the stage on June 17th<br />

live at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh alongside Kylie Minogue, Kristine W.,<br />

Daya, Ally Brooke, and Deborah Cox for the KTUphoria concert series. On July<br />

23rd, she returns to Long Island with Pat Benatar at the Bald Hill Amphitheater in<br />

Farmingville.<br />

Originally from Long Island, her signature groundbreaking hit “Tell it To My Heart”<br />

launched an overnight international stardom which would be followed by 17 Top<br />

20 hits including “Prove Your Love”, “Love Will Lead You Back”, “I’ll Always Love<br />

You”, and a unicorn marathon parade of<br />

others. With three Grammy nominations, an American Music Award, and multiple<br />

others, she ranks as number 18 for best female dance artist of all time.<br />

As a songwriter, she wrote songs for Tina Turner, as well as many of her own. She<br />

also sparked an acting career in Elton John’s “Aida”, as well as films including<br />

“Love Affair” and TV series like “Rude Awakening”. Taylor penned her best-selling<br />

book “Tell it To My Heart: How I Lost My S#*t, Conquered My Fear, And Found My<br />

Voice” and also appeared as a celebrity contestant on RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity<br />

Drag Race as Electra Owl, and season four of “The Masked Singer”.<br />

Taylor continues her career in full swing with new releases she’s about to unveil,<br />

plus her current nationwide tour. I was able to catch her on the fly to talk about<br />

her upcoming visits to New York, her career, and her soon to be released new<br />

projects….<br />

INTERVIEW >><br />

So, you are coming to Long<br />

Island. And I want to know if<br />

you feel like you are coming<br />

full circle and are there any<br />

sentimental feelings attached<br />

to playing on Long Island<br />

since you’re from there?<br />

Yes, I’m performing for<br />

KTUphoria at Jones Beach.<br />

It is an extraordinary lineup.<br />

It’s going to be a great show.<br />

Whenever I play New York,<br />

I get a little sentimental. Of<br />

course, But for me, I think, it’s<br />

groundbreaking because it’s<br />

for KTU. I remember when<br />

that station started. I’m excited<br />

about that.<br />

Then Pat Benatar and I will be<br />

performing on July 23rd as well<br />

in Long Island. There’s a lot<br />

going on this tour season.<br />

What are you most excited<br />

about when performing?<br />

I am more in love with the live<br />

performance than before. I<br />

feel this incredible connection<br />

and energy flow between the<br />

audience and myself. There is<br />

35 years of music. I’ve been<br />

blessed to have my music<br />

transcend through multiple<br />

generations. My generation<br />

has grandkids that know my<br />

music. That’s what I love. I love<br />

the exchange. The experience.<br />

That’s where the true magic<br />

lives.

You’ve had a super crazy<br />

amount of hits. Like a sick<br />

amount. Can you recall any<br />

cool stories regarding any of<br />

them?<br />

Well, I mean from your first hit to<br />

17 songs later, there is always<br />

a cool story attached to each<br />

one. Sitting in an office and just<br />

remembering the magic of the<br />

chorus of “Tell It To My Heart”.<br />

Driving on the West Side<br />

Highway and getting a cassette<br />

from a guy I went to high school<br />

with. Seeing him and seeing<br />

he works at Warner Chappell.<br />

Just things like that. So, I have<br />

to say, every one of them has a<br />

great story.<br />

Have you had your ultimate<br />

stage fantasy yet? Is there<br />

any concert or particular<br />

performance that stands<br />

out in your mind to be your<br />

ultimate performance? The<br />

most fun. The most exciting?<br />

A lot. Numerous ones. But the<br />

most fun and most exciting…I<br />

mean, the audience changes<br />

every night. So it could be the<br />

smallest room in the smallest<br />

venue, but if the room is packed<br />

and even the largest room or<br />

arena…when you are sitting<br />

and playing, it’s really about the<br />

adrenaline from the crowd. I<br />

mean, I played the Olympics in<br />

China. Spectacular! There have<br />

definitely been some ultimates.<br />

Can you recall a moment that<br />

changed the trajectory of<br />

your life or career?<br />

Change my career? The<br />

defining moment was the time<br />

when “Tell It To My Heart” was<br />

released. When Arista Records<br />

said they wanted to pick it up.<br />

What was it like the first time<br />

you ever heard yourself on<br />

the radio?<br />

“Tell It To My Heart” was<br />

released. I remember it was<br />

the 12-inch. It was right before<br />

it broke out. I was in my little<br />

B2 or my B210 Datsun. I was<br />

waiting for the mix show on<br />

the radio at midnight. It was<br />

a show when DJs would take<br />

a chance on a new song. It<br />

started to play. I pulled over. It<br />

was beautiful. It was definitely<br />

that moment.<br />

If you could have me ask<br />

you any question on the<br />

planet, what would you<br />

want me to ask you? And<br />

how would you answer?<br />

As an artist, you come to a<br />

point in time when I’ve met<br />

some of my heroes and<br />

ones that have inspired me.<br />

I’ve had the opportunity<br />

to work with some people<br />

that inspired me. And you<br />

kind of know when your<br />

pilot light is out. I don’t feel<br />

that for me. There is no<br />

real question. I can just<br />

say to you that I feel better than<br />

ever and I feel like I still have<br />

something more to say.<br />

Are you working on any new<br />

songs or projects?<br />

Yes. We are releasing two new<br />

projects between May and<br />

June. I’m doing a remix with one<br />

of the top DJ/producers. Yeah I<br />

have a lot of new music coming<br />

out. I recorded Capitol sessions<br />

with the great Gregg Field.<br />

That was during covid and now<br />

it’s ready for release. I just rerecorded<br />

all of my greatest hits.<br />

Is there anything that you<br />

want to talk about that we<br />

haven’t talked about?<br />

No. I mean great music, great<br />

people. Kylie Minogue, Deborah<br />

Cox and myself, and it’s just<br />

amazing. I can’t wait. We<br />

are playing Jones Beach. It’s<br />

amazing, all amazing.<br />

DANCE DIVA<br />

LONG RUNNING DANCE ARTIST KRISTINE W PERFORMS<br />

AT KTUPHORIA ON JONES BEACH<br />

What do Kristine W<br />

and Mariah Carey<br />

have in common?<br />

They share the<br />

#6 position on<br />

Billboard’s chart for<br />

artists with the most<br />

#1 dance hits! They<br />

have both had 17.<br />

Kristine W began<br />

recording pop, R&B<br />

and dance tracks in<br />

the ‘90s. “Feel What<br />

You Want” was her<br />

first single to reach<br />

the top spot and she<br />

has had a steady<br />

flow ever since,<br />

including “Stars”.<br />

This month, Kristine<br />

is releasing a new<br />

single, “By My Side.”<br />

Will it be the one to<br />

boost her to #5?<br />

As part of her<br />

nationwide promotion<br />

for the song, Kristine<br />

returns to NYC on<br />

June 17 to perform at<br />

KTUphoria on Jones<br />

Beach. She will take<br />

the stage alongside<br />

other headlining<br />

divas like Kylie<br />

Minogue, Deborah<br />

Cox, and Taylor<br />

Dayne. We caught up<br />

with Miss W from her<br />

home in Las Vegas.<br />

INTERVIEW >>>>>>>>>>><br />

Are you excited to perform<br />

at iHeartRadio’s KTUphoria?<br />

Kristine W: Very excited! KTU<br />

is such an iconic station. It<br />

was KTU who was blasting<br />

my hit single at that time, “One<br />

More Try,” throughout the RCA<br />

offices while I sat in the<br />

president’s office hoping to be<br />

signed. I wrote a song about<br />

that day called “Song<br />

Lives On.” The last verse is “a<br />

day in New York I will never<br />

forget, I wept before people<br />

I never had met. I said<br />

nothing’s wrong, it’s just the<br />

radio’s on and they’re playing<br />

my song.” I remember being<br />

completely overwhelmed<br />

hearing my song play on the<br />

radio and then getting signed<br />

to a major label. It was a<br />

dream come true.<br />

Will this be your first-time<br />

performing at Jones Beach?<br />

Yes, and wow, what a beautiful<br />

stage! It is huge!<br />

Will you perform all the<br />

classics?<br />

I will try to fit in as many hits<br />

as I possibly can into my<br />

20-minute set. I also have to<br />

fit in my new song, “By<br />

My Side,” which is a very<br />

appropriate single because<br />

KTU has supported me and<br />

lifted me up throughout the<br />

years. They have always been<br />

by my side. We are family.


“By My Side” is a<br />

beautiful song about<br />

people who remain<br />

through thick and thin.<br />

What inspired it?<br />

The last five years have<br />

been an especially<br />

tough time for me. I got<br />

divorced, my sister Viki<br />

passed away in 2020,<br />

then my mom passed<br />

in 2021, followed by my<br />

brother-in-law, also in<br />

2021. Grief and loss are<br />

very crippling. It can be<br />

tough to get out of bed<br />

when your heart is so<br />

broken. The calm in the<br />

storm is found in those<br />

people around you<br />

who don’t disappear, are<br />

always loyal and help to lift you<br />

up. This song celebrates them.<br />

Friends, family, co-workers,<br />

mentors…they are the glue that<br />

keep us held together and they<br />

are priceless.<br />

Would you count New York<br />

City’s gay community as<br />

sticking by your side<br />

through the years?<br />

Oh, yes. I love my NYC fans.<br />

So many of my team are from<br />

NYC. My longtime publicists,<br />

Jeff and Len from Project<br />

Publicity, have been by my<br />

side for over 20 years! Also,<br />

my booking agent Marc Katz,<br />

songwriting partner Jeff Franzel<br />

and my fabulous hairstylist,<br />

Robert Novo. I can go on<br />

forever, really. I’m so very<br />

blessed, but I have to shout out<br />

Mike Todd, the editor of <strong>Get</strong><br />

<strong>Out</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong>, who has been<br />

an incredible supporter of my<br />

music.<br />

You know the Big<br />

Apple loves you!<br />

Your message to<br />

fans this Pride<br />

season?<br />

We have come a long<br />

way and we have done<br />

it together. We are a<br />

resilient tribe. Let<br />

us celebrate another<br />

epic party in the land<br />

of the living!<br />

HAS ALL NEW BUZZ<br />

WHEN IT COMES TO<br />

SWINGING BACK TO<br />

GOTHAM AND POPPING<br />

UP ON YOUR SMALL-<br />

SCREEN VIEWING AS<br />

WELL. I TALKED TO<br />

SHERRY ABOUT ALL HER<br />

CURRENT EXCITEMENT.<br />

INTERVIEW >><br />

Sherry, it’s great to talk to<br />

you again! So you’ve been in<br />

L.A. for a minute now, after<br />

several years of living in<br />

NYC. Is life better there?<br />

I wouldn’t say life is better here.<br />

I love NYC, but after 28 years,<br />

I was ready for a change. And<br />

I LOVE L.A.! It’s a different<br />

lifestyle, for sure. I am doing<br />

all the things I wanted to do<br />

when I moved, so yay! And the<br />

weather is paradise!<br />

Do you run into celebs every<br />

day, and does Bianco Del Rio<br />

count?<br />

LOL, Bianca counts as a<br />

celeb, but she lives in Palm<br />

Springs. But yes, I have run<br />

into celebs here. It’s funny,<br />

because usually no one makes<br />

a big deal about it. I have had<br />

conversations with people in<br />

line at a coffee shop and they<br />

leave and I don’t even realize<br />

who it was until 10 minutes<br />

later.<br />

Speaking of Bianca, I<br />

understand she’ll be<br />

appearing as a guest for the<br />

upcoming second hilarious<br />

season of The Sherry Vine<br />

Variety Show that premieres<br />

June 8 on OUTtv Prime Video<br />

Channel, OUTtv, Apple TV<br />

Channel, OUTtv on the Roku<br />

Channel, OUTtv on Comcast<br />

and Cox, and OUTtv.com!<br />

How fun was writing and<br />

filming this? This is what you<br />

were made for, isn’t it?<br />

Honey, this is exactly what I<br />

was made for. I always wanted<br />

to do what Carol Burnett did.<br />

A variety show is the perfect<br />

platform to showcase singing,<br />

acting, sketch comedy, playing<br />

different characters--it is my<br />

heaven! I had Jackie Beat<br />

to collaborate on most of the<br />

writing, which made it fun and<br />

easy. When we connect, it’s<br />

magic. And the special guests<br />

really bring it this season!<br />

The Sherry Vine Variety<br />

Show pays tribute and pokes<br />

a little fun at the glitzy and<br />

wonderfully corny variety<br />

show format of the 1970s.<br />

I think after decades of<br />

tacky reality shows and<br />

social media madness, folks<br />

today can really embrace a<br />

comeback of this genre.<br />

I think you’re right, and I hope<br />

others think so, too. With all<br />

the shit going on in the world,<br />

I think people are hungry for<br />

some escapism. That doesn’t<br />

mean we should live in a<br />

bubble and block out reality, but<br />

if we have reality all day, then<br />

I think we deserve to take 22<br />

minutes and just be silly and<br />

laugh.<br />

Other amazing guests this<br />

season include Tammie<br />

Brown, Monet X Change,<br />

Kelly Mantle, Drew Droege,<br />

Varla Jean Merman, Ongina,<br />

Pandora Boxx, Honey<br />

Davenport and Manila<br />

Luzon. What else can folks<br />

expect from these six new<br />

episodes?<br />

Yes, it is chock full of amazing<br />

guest stars! I think it moves<br />

faster than season one. I tried<br />

to keep all the sketches to<br />

3-4 minutes. We have more<br />

commercial parodies, five<br />

original songs, more locations,<br />

and a recurring sketch called<br />

“Lady Cops” starring Jackie and<br />

I, with Monet as the captain. I<br />

think it’s hilarious: a total spoof<br />

on Cagney and Lacey and cop<br />

shows of the 80’s.

Besides watching you on<br />

TV, fans can see you back in<br />

the tri-State area for the live<br />

Sherry experience in June!<br />

Your touring one woman<br />

show, Everybody’s Girl,<br />

arrives at the new venue<br />

Red Eye in Midtown on June<br />

14, and then at Paradise in<br />

Asbury Park, N.J. on June<br />

16! What are you talking and<br />

song parodying, about in this<br />

one?<br />

Yes, I’m so excited to bring my<br />

new show to the East Coast.<br />

It’s all new parodies, including<br />

Miley Cyrus, Dionne Warwick,<br />

Bruce Springsteen, Elton<br />

John, Dua Lipa and more.<br />

I’ll be wearing a new couture<br />

gown by the amazing<br />

David Dalrymple and I<br />

have a few surprises.<br />

Oh, and a hilarious video<br />

commercial parody! I<br />

can’t promise I’ll hit all the<br />

notes, but I can promise<br />

you will laugh.<br />

Later in June, you’ll be<br />

back at Red Eye for The<br />

Golden Girls Live (June<br />

22-24, plus a night at<br />

Fire Island’s Ice Palace<br />

on June 26), a hilarious<br />

tribute to the titular<br />

queens of gay TV that<br />

also stars Jackie Beat,<br />

Sam Pancake and Drew<br />

Droege. You, of course,<br />

are the Rue/Blanche!<br />

Was it a big discussion<br />

of which of you would<br />

be which Girl, or was<br />

it all obvious from day<br />

one?<br />

LOL--there was no<br />

discussion that I would<br />

play the slut. I’m always<br />

the slut! And Jackie<br />

literally is Bea Arthur<br />

reincarnated. Sam and<br />

Drew aren’t full time drag<br />

queens, but they are both<br />

brilliant comics. People have<br />

been asking us to bring this<br />

show east for years, so it’s<br />

finally happening. The shows<br />

alone are hysterical, but<br />

add in our 80’s costumes,<br />

commercials from the 80’s<br />

and our over-the-top camp<br />

performances and I’m hoping<br />

people will be rolling in the<br />

aisles.<br />

What else is coming up for<br />

you?<br />

I will also be performing around<br />

the world this summer: Iceland<br />

Pride, Malta (Euro Pride), the<br />

Dunes in Saugatuck, Montreal,<br />

Keane Pride, Vienna and more.<br />

Check out www.SherryVine.<br />

com to see where this whore<br />

might be passing through near<br />

you. We just wrapped filming<br />

season two of Dr. Jackie (also<br />

for OUT TV), which I produced<br />

and play her secretary.<br />

And finally: when you’re not<br />

out living the Hollywood life,<br />

what are you binge<br />

watching these days?<br />

I just binged The Diplomat.<br />

Literally watched it all in one<br />

wee <strong>–</strong>sooooooo good!<br />

House diva Beth Sacks<br />

is at it again and has<br />

just released a brand<br />

new dance song with<br />

international DJ and<br />

producer Thomas<br />

Solvert from Spain<br />

called “We Can Set The<br />

World On Fire”. Her<br />

past mega dance floor<br />

hits with DJ Aron have<br />

included “Voulez Vous”,<br />

“What’s Up”, “Imagine”,<br />

“You Can Have My<br />

Heart”, “Satisfaction”,<br />

“One Life”, “Invincible”<br />

and many more. <strong>Get</strong><br />

<strong>Out</strong>! sat down to speak<br />

with Beth about the<br />

new collaboration.<br />

INTERVIEW<br />

What inspired the song “We<br />

Can Set The World On Fire”<br />

and what is its story?<br />

The song is about a<br />

relationship between two<br />

people who have known each<br />

other as good friends. After<br />

years of failed relationships,<br />

it hit them that they were<br />

destined to be together, and<br />

with their love, they can set the<br />

world on fire and anything is<br />

possible. It’s also a metaphor<br />

for the world, that with love,<br />

anything is possible, that love<br />

makes the world a better place.<br />

I see you’re working with<br />

a new producer, Thomas<br />

Solvert. How did this<br />

collaboration come about?<br />

He has been one of the<br />

remixers on past songs I had<br />

released with Dj Aron, and I<br />

loved his style and wanted to<br />

create a fun, uplifting song<br />

for the summer and for Pride<br />

season. Thomas had created<br />

the music track and I wrote and<br />

sung the lyrics. Thomas Solvert<br />

plays worldwide for some of the<br />

biggest parties. You can follow<br />

his music at: www.soundcloud.<br />

com/thomas-solvert-music.<br />

Where can we find the song?<br />

The song is available on<br />

all music platforms such as<br />

iTunes, Amazon, Spotify,<br />

Deezer and Youtube.<br />

Will you be releasing more<br />

music for the summer?<br />

Yes. I am involved in several<br />

exciting music projects with<br />

some amazing producers!<br />

What inspires you when<br />

writing a new song?<br />

What inspires me most is<br />

creating a heartfelt melody,<br />

and from that I create the lyrics<br />

to tell a story that everyone<br />

can relate to, whether it be<br />

about love, a breakup or a<br />

power song about being strong<br />

or about being proud and<br />

celebrating life.


Where can we see you<br />

perform live next?<br />

For my Florida fans, I’ll be<br />

performing for you:<br />

June 17th at Wilton Manor<br />

Pride (Ft. Laud) Hunter’s<br />

Nightclub at 10pm on the<br />

outdoor stage.<br />

June 24th at<br />

St. Petersburg’s Pride<br />

Concert at 9pm.<br />

Both shows will include<br />

some of my past hits and my<br />

newest hit.<br />

What does Pride mean to<br />

you?<br />

For me, Pride is about<br />

being proud of who you<br />

are, period, and celebrating<br />

our differences and never<br />

being ashamed! Pride is<br />

about equality for all and<br />

respecting one another.<br />

The LGBTQIA community<br />

still faces many obstacles,<br />

unfortunately, in this new<br />

world. I have always been<br />

a big advocate for gay rights<br />

because everyone deserves<br />

the same rights!<br />

What does it mean to you<br />

to have achieved global<br />

success and followers?<br />

For me, it makes me happy<br />

and proud to have achieved<br />

reaching people from around<br />

the world through music. I<br />

feel it is the one constant<br />

that always connects people,<br />

no matter who they are or<br />

where they are from. It’s<br />

not about the money or<br />

being well known. For me,<br />

it’s getting to meet amazing<br />

people from all over and<br />

seeing their happy faces<br />

on the dance floor. For<br />

that one night, everyone is<br />

one. Everyone forgets the<br />

problems in the world and<br />

unites. Nothing makes me<br />

happier than making music<br />

that brings happiness to<br />

others.<br />
