Hell, for all I know maybe Samantha Ronson doesn't do lesbians either. Maybe she just has a thing for women who are unsure like Lindsay Lohan. But, according to the NY Post, one of the most famous lesbian bars in America that really could have used Samantha Ronson's help to stay open was told by her agent that Samantha doesn't perform at lesbian bars. Obviously if she did, someone may confuse her with an actual lesbian. Oh, wait, she is.
I'm not going to tell Samantha Ronson where she should and should not play, but to outright ban playing at any gay or lesbian nightclub just seems wrong. I don't care if she was straight, what the hell does it matter what clubs you play at? They were willing to pay her fee ($8,000 a night, airfare, and a hotel) but Sam would have no part of it. My guess is that in a few years when Lindsay is back to guys and people have forgotten Sam and her fee is $200 and a pack of smokes that perhaps she will not be treating the gay and lesbian community as poorly as she is treating them now.
This particular bar she refused to play at is Rubyfruit which despite her hands off attitude ended up being saved from closure and has now been renamed RF Lounge. Sam had the opportunity to help a bar that is known worldwide. Forget that it is lesbian, she had a chance to do something special and she chose not to. Well, maybe now she will see that her actions have consequences and she will be mooching off her brother and sister much sooner than expected.
