Rufus Wainwright Is A Father

Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen.

So, let’s recap:

On the baby’s father’s side, she is connected to the Wainwrights, the McGarrigles, and the Roches.  And her maternal grandfather is Leonard Cohen.

If karma were fair, young Viva will have no musical or literary talent whatsoever.

I used to love Rufus Wainwright, but the last album of his that I bought was Want II.  I wasn’t so into the next album, and he just got a little bit too over the top.  The album immediately after Want II broke the spell and the love.  (I do want to get his Judy Garland at Carnegie Hall tribute though.)  My feelings about his music and about the character he puts forward are very complicated.

Nevertheless, congratulations to all involved, I guess.
