Happy birthday to Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters. There are a million reasons I love this man. His music with Scissor Sisters makes me so happy! Every time one of their songs comes on, you want to suddenly throw yourself a dance party. He’s one of the best performers I’ve ever seen. Whether he’s performing at a small club or a stadium, he gives 1000%! The man has so much energy and he gives it all he’s got. I’ve seen Scissor Sisters so many times and I’ve never walked away from their shows feeling disappointed. He’s also a role model for gay men. He’s not afraid to show a little skin and he’s an advocate for freedom and self-expression. Last, but not least, he’s a very nice person. He’s always nice to fans. Always! I appreciate that so much. As he’s a big fan of music himself, he knows exactly how it could scar a fan for life for being a jerk to them. If you are unfamiliar with their music, and if you live in the USA, there’s a good chance you are – check it out immeditely. Jake is the real deal. Hope you have the happiest of birthdays Jake! Thanks for so many great times and for all the great music – past, present and future! xo
