10 Things We Learned About Brad Goreski From His New Book, Plus What He Told Us About Being 'Blacklisted' at Vogue and Becoming a Lady Gaga Backup Dancer
Brad Goreski's memoir Born to be Brad hit shelves yesterday (he's doing a signing at 5pm tonight at the FIT Barnes & Noble) and you're not alone in thinking there's no way Brad is old enough to be writing his memoir. We thought the same thing until we read it--and as it turns out, Brad has lived a pretty full life--perhaps even two of them. And as of today, that life is literally an open book--and a pretty juicy one at that. From his difficulties growing up gay in a small Canadian town, to a period of excessive partying, to being a 24-year-old Vogue intern, to becoming the assistant to a huge celebrity stylist and a reality TV star in one felll swoop, to how that job came to an end, he doesn't really leave anything out. And he clears up a lot of those rumors. We learned so much about the celebrity stylist-slash-reality television star that we almost didn't know what to ask him the other day when we chatted on the phone. Of course, we managed to find some good stuff to talk about. Click through for the 10 most interesting things we learned about the It's a Brad, Brad World star from his shiny new book, followed by a Q+A in which he discusses making it in the industry, still feeling like an outsider, his backup dancer ambitions and how his boyfriend Gary is amazing--not that we didn't already know that.
