It’s no secret that I adore Scissor Sisters led by hottie Jake Shears (yet I can’t forget Ana Matronic, she’s so fierce) and I just got a heads up about a new book coming out called One Day in the Life of Jake Shears and it’s a serious must-have for me! Check out some of the photos below, snapped by New York-based photographer Tim Hailand. I found out this morning that the band will be opening for Lady Gaga next week when I see her in Washington DC, I’m super excited! Anyways, you can pre-order the book right now (along with One Day in the Life of Rufus Wainwright, another total hottie) over on onedayinthelifeof.org, plus some of the proceeds will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation!
Captured on June 22 2010 in London, One Day in the Life of Jake Shears finds the Scissor Sisters singer in bed at St Martins Lane hotel at 8:15 am, and follows him throughout his day in black and white photos; showering, a BBC radio session, lunch with composer Nico Muhly, Akiko, and Jonathan Pierce of The Drums, off to the famous Brixton Academy. Here we see Jake trying out new stage clothing by designer Gareth Pugh, followed by a sound-check and pre-show chat with producer Stuart Price. The images then burst into gorgeous color as Jake and his Sisters take to the stage and dazzle all with the first concert of their “Night Work” world tour! Returning to the black and white world, Jake jumps in a car back to the hotel, dinner in bed and finally to sleep. This book is a must have for any fan of the Scissor Sisters, with accompanying text contribution by Jake Shears himself, introduction by Elton John and afterword by Kylie Minogue. A portion of all book sales benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation
