Waters: Still Trying For Fruitcake!

John Waters is truly inexhaustible. Just when I think I know everything about him — right down to the last tweeze in his left eyebrow — I read a new interview in which another detail makes me fall off my chair laughing. His latest spill: in my own newspaper, the Financial Times. He tells Andrew Edgecliffe-Johnson that he’s still trying to make his Christmas film, “Fruitcake.” Other holiday tidbits: he’s doing his one-man act, “A John Waters Christmas,” in Boston on December 10 and in Portland, Maine on December 11. “I’m trying to open up new questions such as, is Santa erotic?” he says. Finally, in the FT piece I learned that he once went to midnight Mass with his pious mother and into the church ponced Divine — in full drag. We are all too normal now.
