  I know, i know...its to early for a new post, but I wanted to share some pics, and some new album info with those of you who enjoy my band Scissor Sisters' music. A website from the UK called Pop Justice popjustice.com has been on my ass for the last three years for information on out newest album, which is due out March 2010. 
 These two are recent pics of me at the keyboard putting some of the finishing touches on our new album. It was taken in London at Kylie Minogue's studio. In the second one we're (Kyle, Calvin, and I) also "working" continuously on both our album new album and Kylie's.







Here we have Papa Shears, as Ana likes to call me. This pic was taken at a nearby park, we were lunching al fresco with the children.  I felt so middle american with my box of wine. Hahaha.


 Here is the transcript for you fans...

Maryanne makes her debut...
Looook Into my eeeeyes
jakey_shears
      September 1st, 2009 2:52 am, a day that I will never forget. Maryanne Sellards came into the word weighing 6 lbs 7oz, and measuring 18 inches. She has blue eyes and blonde hair like her father and pale milky skin like her mother.I feel so honored to be her Father, I want to protect her, love her, provide for her and show her right from wrong. I want to sit at her tea parties with her stuffed animals, take her to her first day of school, Take pictures of her and her prom date, give her away on her wedding day, and see her give me plenty of grandchildren.

     She was born at the Birth Centre in London, overlooking Big Ben and the Thames River. Maryanne was born in London because last year, when she was concieved, we were living there, and we liked the Doctor and the Birth Centre so much that we decided to have Ana give birth there. The labor was only three hours from the time Ana's water broke at 11 pm, to the time i snipped the cord at almost 3am. We had a marvelous midwife and a great team of doctors and nurses that helped Ana bare the pain of the natural birth. It was an amazing, and two days later we took our little girl home to our lovley apartment in Soho.
     One month later, and we're home in New York City. Day by day she's showing us little bits of her personality. She's a big-time cryer, like her Old Man, but she has a playful spirit, very silly too. Robbie, her older brother who just started the First Grade, is very keen on her, he talks to her and rocks her craddle lovingly. We are one big happy family these days!

     Speaking of happy, my ex husband Happy has come by to scoop up Robbie for his week of custody. I have not seen him in almost two months and surprisingly, I think i'm finally over him. That's rather strange to me, the former love of my life no longer makes me feel anything. This divorce was especially difficult because he never treated me badly, and neither did I. I couldn't sacrifice my career, and my dreams to be a stay at home mom like we wanted to be. This was the whole premise of our marriage, we'd get married, release one more album, and quit show biz, start a family and move to Ohio. When I realized my inability to give him what i promised at the altar, It all fell apart. We became distant with each other. We seperated twice, and last December I decided I wanted a child of my own. I knew that this divorce was imminent, and that Robbie would have to be shared.

     By the middle of Ana's second trimester it had become evident to Happy that something was up. He had moved out on Christmas Eve and Ana moved in. Her pregnancy was the ultimate act of betrayal in his eyes. Our trust was broken, and we lost our frienship. We have retained civility, but its different. Atleast I dont want to kiss him anymore each time we meet to pick-up or hand-over our son. A part of me will always love him. But after six months of seperation and three months of divorce, a cordial smile is good enough, and in time we'll be friends again. 

     So that's whats been going on in my life. Things seem to be lookin up for me, and i hope they stay that way. This weekend is Robbie's one year Adoption Day Anniversary, We're having a little party, Im baked the cake and in 2 hours the house will be filled with friends and family. A film exec friend of mine has sent me a dvd of the new G I Joe, so the boys will be watching that while they gorge on cake and apple juice. I hope to write a little more often, but if you want to keep in contact with me you all can reach me on AIM: JakeyShears . Much Love.

I don't mean to suggest that I loved you the best...

I feel like I've made a big mistake with you. I should have known that you could never offer me what i needed, but alas, I was just a dick to you.

 Hey everyone, Its time for me to post before i hit six weeks.

Alot has been going on since i last posted on here, most memorable was this last Sunday when i got to attend the Tony Awards for the second year in a row with the lovely Miss Liza Minnelli as my date. What i truly loved best from the show was the amazing opening number, which started with the boys from Billy Elliot spining chairs and lifting each other into the air with all the grace and finess of a Nureyev or a Baryshnikov, al while Elton John played the piano. More memorable moments in the opening number were Stockard Channing looking amazing in that brown feather dress, Dolly Parton and the cast of 9 to 5, and "Let The Sunshine In" by the amazing cast of Hair. (and the especially hot Gavin Creel *drools*).

Unfortunatley for me, I had to leave early, right afterr Liza's at the Palace won. No fabulous decadent parties for me, no no no. I had to make it home in time for Happy to drop off our son. he hates driving at night, especially over that Battery Brooklyn Tunnel. Right after I  wrote my last update things kind of went for the worst. We've been seperated for over a month, hes moved into a nice little neighboorhood in Brooklyn called Carole Gardens. Bunch of cute brownstones, young gay and multi-cultural community.As for me, i've decided to  keep our apartment in Manhattan (Robbie needs some stability, thank you Stephen and Jon for that great advice). It does feel a little big for just two of us. but whenever i try and explain that to any other New Yorker they always look offended. This city isn't known for spacious apartments. To kill the lonliness Ana, my bandmate is moving in with us, this will be good.

So the reason why I really couldnt stay at the Tony's is because I had to get home in time for my son to arrive, wash all of his dirty clothes from his week with his father, and then jam all of our shit into our lugage because we had a flight bright and early monday morning. We had to leave our place at 6:00 AM, go pick up Baby Daddy, and get to La Guardia by 7:00 AM. so that we could be on our 9:00 AM flight to London without delay. Luckily everything went super great, but as soon as i hit my seat i told Baby Daddy to look after Robbie, and i fell sound asleep. I got no sleep that night and i didnt wake ,except once to pee and feed Robz, until the plane started to land in Heathrow.

Our stay in London has been productive. Babydaddy and I have been invited here by our good friend Kylie to come work on her newest musical endeavors. Last night i pun at one of my favorite clubs here in London, which i will do one more before we leave Friday night. This has been the first weekend since the begining of may that Robz , Ana and i havent spent at our beachside summer rental in Southampton. We usually have our friends come up and barbeque with us. This weekend my parents were probaply sunbathing nude for all i know...I miss the beach though.

Ok, so i suppose three paragraphs shall suffice. Ill try to update more regularly. Best Wishes to all of you out there in mbp land

The Bitch Is Back

   Hello Everyone
     I have decided to return from my EXTENDED hiatus. I've missed all of my friends here so much. The reson for my departure was simple, I needed tome time to settle in to out new home here in New York Citty. Happy, Robbie and i are doing quite well, Ana is also living with us as of the begining of the third trimester. We are having twins, a boy and a girl, thanks to Keanu's generosity, Shes due to deliver bu the  beginging of June. June will also hold another milestone for the Sellards-Chichester Family , on June 7th Hqarold and I will have our first wedding anniversity, yay we made it, but not with out our fair share  of complications. Remember back in June, we lost our first babys at two months after they were concieved. We went though a small separation at the begining of the year, but we quickly reconcilled. I agreed to severely cut my work load. We're delaying our third album and going on hiatus ourselves as Del pursues a solo effert, and Ana and I take a step into parenthood. All of our fans will be waiting a bit more for it's release. 
    youll hear from us soon.

OMG what a fantastic wedding, we were so honored to attend and sing too. The Chapel was beautifully decorated in mahogany, burnt umber and gold. candles flickered in the breeze and a church organ played Night and Day by Cole Porter as a few hundred guest filed inside Happy Ana and I sat near the front, Robbie sat on his Daddy Happy's lap. The Grooms were dressed in matching Viktor and Rolf suits, they walked up opposite  aisles  with their mothers and met in the center aisle midway and linked arms and walked the other half together. The vows were sonnets of shakespeare and a bit of thir own. It was  quite an amazing sight to see them kis and walk down as husbands as we sang our gay little song. The reception was quite a sight to see. Opulant tables were set up with massive candelabras and amber dyed roses and creme mums and white and orange pumpkins. The ornate china was set up delictley among the glimmery silverware and crystal stemware.  Magnigicent chandeleirs hung, regal suits of armour lined the foyer and in the midde a glorious gargantuan ice sculpture of two grecian men in eachothers arms. No expense was too big for this event. Celebrities flocked in dressed in their couture garments and draped in jewels. We dined on Beef Tartare Oxtail Ravioli, Prime Aged Skillet Steaks with Green Peppercorn Sauce, Truffle and Lobster Bisque and lots of other stuff. The cake was spongey and moist. it was chocolate and a mix of butter cream and marzipan. Each guest left with a schwag bag with items from places like Swarovsky, Omega Timepieces, Versace china, Keihls skincare, and more. At the end, the grooms took off in a 1954 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, the kind Cary Grant drove! Good Times

Rehearsal Lunch
Looook Into my eeeeyes

   Oh No, that annoying guy in the sparkly pants is posting again.

Yes it is true...so deal. We finally drove up to Guildford today, which isn't THAT far off, i live in Notting Hill which is northeast of Guildford. I just got my husband a new Lexus LS hybrid for his birthday, which comes in handy because my Lotus is a 2 seater. Soon the Lexus will hold 2 carseats on each end for the twins and Robbie in the middle, but today Harold drove, I was co-pilot, and Ana snoozed in the back with Robbie's head on her lap. We got here around noon and settled into our  hotel room then met at one of the groom's parents estate for lunch. The whole wedding party, close friends and relatives dined  on Duckling Consume, Roasted Beets, and Diver Scallops appetizers Tiger Prawn Scampi in Parsnip Puree, Fillet of Bison with Foie Gras in Perigord Truffle sauce, Cabernet Braised Short Ribs with Crispy Shallots and Wild Huckleberry Sauce for the main course and Grand Marnier Souffle,  Chocolate Espresso Torte, and Tahitian Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee for dessert. Wine flowed freely , apple juice for Ana and Robbie. Ive never been so full, I had the Bison, well me and Robbie, he sat on my lap and nibbled on the bison i cut up for him and the veggies. Afer that we all filed into our cars and drove to the chapel for the rehearsal. I think a rehearsal lunch is a whole lot more fun and easy, It reminded me so much of ours. Good times. Anyway tommarrow night is the wedding and I'm so excited and thrilled to be able to sing for them, then the reception will be at a local French restaurant, the food just doesnt end. Tomarrow David and Elton get here and Kylie too so its going to be alot of fun.

Fashion Clashin' and bit of other stuff
Seranade You

A little while ago, a good friend of mine, Micah Consylman,  IMed me with a complaint, he had found a picture where he claims to look “too gay”, I didn’t know what the problem was, I thought, aren’t you gay? His rebuttal was that this was not his chosen aesthetic; he preferred a more masculine look. As he told me this, my thoughts went to Happy. I realized how much our fashion senses clash I’m Gaultier and he’s Ralph Lauren, there is nothing wrong with either at all its just so interesting to me.
   No other example could be better than the night he proposed to me.  When we lived in LA our walk-in closets were so tiny that we’d just change together in the bedroom which was always nice because I got to get a peak of him undressed and likewise for him, this always made us late due to unscheduled hanky-panky (that comes with its own complications, you cant get come off of a tuxedo jacket with great ease). Not this night, he made it clear that we had reservations at Dolce that COULD NOT be broken and with that he sent me to the bathroom to dress. When I finally got my suit on and walked into the bedroom I wondered how people would tell were a couple. He stood there looking quite debonair in his vintage suit (I forget the designer, maybe Valentino); it was gray and modest in a leading mankind of way. I stood before him in a black Prada suit with sharp angular lapels. The shirt was mint and the tie was a diagonal stripe of chartreuse and fuchsia with thin silver lines as borders along the fatter ones. He looked like Cary Grant and I looked like one of the boys on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
   Now here we are, six marvelous months later, and were still going at it. Although I do some of my husbands shopping I like to keep it his style with a little influence from me. He’s really come around a lot; he lets me spoil him rotten with fashion. Don’t get me wrong, its not like he hates fashion, he’s into it especially now that we have the luck to live in London during the fall. We go to Burberry, Ben Sherman, Vivienne Westwood, and Alexander McQueen. Yesterday we went to Paul Smith right on Floral Street to get suits for my friends wedding on Saturday in Surrey where Ana Matronic and yours truly will be singing “Might Tell You Tonight” as the grooms kiss and march down the aisle at the end of the ceremony. Check out What We picked out!


Did you guess who's is who's? That's mine on the Left and Happy's on the Right. Still clashing to this day.

   In other news, the album is officially finished, whew. Now we get to do fun stuff like album art, the little book inside, fun website changes, photo shoots, videos and tour planning. All of those require a lot of clothing, lucky for me i get to shop on the label's dime and keep it all (don't tell my husband this hes already pissed at my taking over the house with my clothes) Ive been gathering inspiration and collecting magazine clippings, sketching stuff, collecting swatches of fabric, buying stuff (mostly accessories and shoes) It can be a bit of a headache but i love fashion so its cool.. Album hits in January, and that musical i did the music for  is coming out next year too.
   Plus after the album hits my contract is up for revision and maybe renewal. I'm gonna get  A LOT of flack for this but Happy and I have bee talking about me only doing a fourth record then moving on to do either a solo career or just working as a journalist again and producing only. Or maybe nothing, I've got twins on the way and next year will be full of touring and babies. We've considered moving to Ohio to raise our family there, who knows what lies ahead for us.

  I haven't felt so relaxed in months...probably since my honeymoon trip to Ireland in June. This week Happy and I turn 46 and 30 years old on October 2nd and 3rd. We originally wanted to stay a week in Paris, but that trip had to wait until later because we did not expect to fall in love with Robbie like we did, and part of the contract we signed in order to become his foster parents was that we wouldn't take him out of the country. Instead we decide to take it in another direction, an outdoorsy week in Scotland. We packed our stuff up and headed to the Isle of Rona, which is a lovely sparsley populated island on Scotland's west coast.
   We've rented a cottage close to the coast. We have been kayaking, hiking on many amazing trails. This place is so full of natural beauty, especially now when the leaves are turning colors and the weather is more crisp. Robbie is in love with this place, this is his first real trip, hes so cute in his wide-eyed wonder. He chases after every little lizard bird and squirrel. He is super pumped about tommarorw, were going horseback riding. By the time we get back to the cottage around six or so, I send the boys to wash up while i make dinner. I know alot of people may be against the idea of cooking on your vacation, but i find cooking for my family to be one of the most rewarding parts of my life. Last night I served pheasant with roasted veggies, butternut squash soup and fresh warm bread (i got that at the local bakery, i dont do bread). Then we finished with my mother's famous apple strudel (i do make that, and from scratch) and apple cider, with a little whiskey for the grown-ups. We finished the dishes and general clean up around nine and we put Robibie to bed and Happy reads him a little story while i take a shower then we head outside to the porch on the swing and its pretty amazing. Im sure all of our friends have had enough of me bragging about our sexcapades, so let me just say this. Going two weeks without sex may not be such a bad idea because its that much more wow when you actually get a chance to. Mind Blowing! Theres nothing like rediscovering your husbands tight little body after a dozen or so days apart. I am blissed out.
   When Friday  afternoon comes i will not bevery content with the idea of leaving the Isle of Rona. I'll probably be seated by the window of the jet with Robbie sitting on my lap waving good bye. All good times must come to an end, which is okay because the next day our good friend Richard Branson is throwing us a joined birthday party at Sketch. Goodtimes, so if any of you are in the area your welcome to come. Itt be my first all grown up birthday party, but not just mine Happy too. Oh btw its kid friendly. Come, get fed have a few drinks and meet some cool folks.
