So what if I like pretty things

You've gotta hand it to Rufus Wainwright. The guy has got major cajones. His new CD (Want Two... want two what?) features him in DRAG on the cover. Or pre-Raphaelite drag.

Fans on his messageboard, who hysterically overanalyze everything, have smartly alluded to David Bowie's penchant for bold /shocking album covers and this one is in that vein. Did Rufus decide WalMart would not sell the record anyway, since it features a song about giving Jesus a blowjob? I saw the .jpg posted a few days ago and assumed a fan had done a mock cover with a famous painting, but noooo, this is actually the cover.
