STIPE IS DISGUISING HIS FASCINATION




REM star Michael Stipe has developed a deep fascination for a cross-dressing gender confused junkie, who sells racoon penises on the internet. Who wouldn't?

The singer is so infatuated with transvestite author JT Leroy that he attends all his readings in New York.

But it seems Michael is embarrassed about anyone finding out. Each time Stipe has turned up to listen to Leroy's work, he's worn a ridiculous hat and a pale brown handkerchief on his head.

Now, now. There's really nothing to be ashamed of, Michael.
