Jake Shears And Babydaddy Scissor Gary Barlow

Seems there's more to the Daily Star article where Jake Shears admitted he'd love to fill in for the ailing Howard Donald in Take That.

I found the full feature online and, after getting on the topic of the British man band, Scissor Sister Babydaddy said, “I don’t need to hear a word Gary [Barlow] says – I just love him. I know I’m not in the majority here, but I think he’s the sexiest creature ever.”

Jake Shears chimed in: “We’re not joking, he’s so cute.”

Meanwhile, this got me to thinking of one of the classiest passages from Gary's biography, My Take, which I read the other week -- when he describes how overweight and depressed he got in the early 2000s.

"I was wheezy and out of breath with even the slightest exertion. It would take me three rolls to get off the bed and I was reduced to wearing XXXL tracksuits...

...I was then 'papped' by the Daily Mirror's photographers coming out of our local pub. The article included gems like 'Back For Pud' and 'Relight My Fryer.' Of course it hurt, but their writers are clever."

"Relight My Fryer" is pretty much one of the hottest things I've ever heard.
