Makeover Monday!

As Ottawa begins gussying up for its ten-day Pride fest, we're seeing more than a few makeovers…

We've all seen those Terminator movies where cyborgs travel back from the future but the photo shoot for Adam Lambert's upcoming album cover makes him look like a Terminator from the Elizabethan era:

Meanwhile, Canada's most famous Mountie is again heading due south — not to America, but to Hell.  Playing the Devil in the new TV series 'Eastwick,' Paul Gross is looking good in a suit:

Speaking of pretty Canadians, Hayden Christiansen is finally starting to put that 'Star Wars' debacle behind him through modelling, though he seems to have kept his Jedi powers:

Sex advice columnist Dan Savage is already easy on the eyes but we're waiting to see him glammed up for his new TV pilot for HBO.  

Further abroad, even Sweden is getting a makeover — watching them try to be hip and sexy is adorkable:

But not every transformation is met with delight. Weighing in on the bizarre controversy over South African athlete Caster Semenya's gender, feminist writer Germaine Greer gets nasty:

"Nowadays we are all likely to meet people who think they are women,
have women's names, and feminine clothes and lots of eyeshadow, who
seem to us to be some kind of ghastly parody, though it isn't polite to
say so. We pretend that all the people passing for female really are.
Other delusions may be challenged, but not a man's delusion that he is
female."

Now sure, I could be snotty and point out how such vicious transphobia is pretty rich coming from a woman who looks like this —

— but hey, Makeover Monday means I should change too, getting serious and putting such snide cheap shots behind me.

Until tomorrow!
