Singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright is also gay and hot in an arty, elfish way. An accomplished and fascinating artist, Wainwright's early influences were apparently split between opera and Blondie and he has recorded songs for films such as " Brokeback Mountain" and "Shrek".
Raped in a London park at age 14, he later battled an addiction to crystal meth and has partied with Marianne Faithful and Barbara Bush, daughter of the US President. Rufus has toured with Cyndi Lauper, Erasure, Tori Amos and Sting.
His official site is a fan's delight with everything from ring tones to tour dates available in a soft layout that mirrors Rufus' complex mystique.
