My love for Rufus Wainwright and Cadillacs

"I’ve been a fan of both the artist and car for many years – Wainwright since his album “Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall” and Cadillac since I fell in love with a well-preserved gold ’69 DeVille while in high school. My parents didn’t approve of either Wainwright or my trading a silver ’89 Geo Spectrum for the Caddy."

Rufus Wainwright is an eccentric out artist best known for his baroque pop compositions that blur the lines between a Broadway musical, Beethoven’s Fifth, and next wave pop. Most will know him from his renditions of Hallelujah and Complainte De La Butte from “Moulin Rouge”, but his 2009 album “Milwaukee At Last!!!” takes his art to new extremes…just as Cadillac raises its fins to new heights with the 2010 CTS Sport Wagon. Get ready for a multi-generational, multi-dimensional power trip fit for the self-proclaimed gay messiah.

The album was recorded in a working-class town not unlike the Detroit from which Cadillac originally came. As if rising out of the dusty murk of the mid-west, the CTS is a stunning example of modern design and competent performance. It will also coddle your bum with the grip of heated and cooled, side-bolstered, sweet-smelling, cowhide-covered seats. READ MORE
