"I would literally walk around naked in public all the time, at least for that day. …. I just wouldn't wear clothes. I wouldn't care how cold it would be."—Dustin Lance Black reveals what he would do if he could change bodies with hubby Tom Daley for one day. This was part of an interview he did for Tom's website. Lance also revealed that Tom's best quality is his "rear end," saying, "It's also nice that you're ambitious and you're a perfectionist, and you're really nice to people. But all that pales in comparison to you walking away in your Speedos." At least he's consistent.

Week one of the Jussie Smollett trial revealed some juicy tidbits. As expected, the Nigerian bodybuilding brothers were the most damaging witnesses. They claimed that Smollett came up with the plan—a plan they went along with to help out their "friend." (They also hoped he'd open some acting doors for them.) They claim Smollett wanted to be doused with gasoline, which they didn't think was safe—so they switched to bleach without his consent. Jussie's lawyer put their testimony in question by alleging that the brothers asked Jussie for $1 million each not to testify—an allegation the bodybuilders denied. However, there was no getting around the fact that one of the brothers (Abimbola) accompanied Jussie to a gay bathhouse! Abi claimed he didn't know it was gay—because there are so many straight bathhouses! Smollett's lawyer said, "You didn't see the big rainbow flag?" Olabinjo (the other brother) worked in gay bars in Boystown, and the two of them had marched in a Gay Pride parade dressed as the Trojan warrior and handed out condoms! Their testimony was so damning, experts believe Jussie will have no choice but to testify this week.

We had a fabulous time last week on Billy Masters LIVE with the marvelous Marilyn Maye. We caught up with her in between shows at The Wick Theatre in Boca Raton, where she is appearing until Dec. 19. (You can get tickets at TheWick.org .) This week, we welcome the legendary Bob Mackie to talk about a gorgeous new coffee table book called The Art of Bob Mackie, written by Frank Vlastnik and Laura Ross. Vlastnik will also join us, so tune in on on Thursday, Dec. 9, at 3 p.m. ET / Noon PT. You can watch live (or anytime afterward) at BillyMasters.com/TV or YouTube.com/BillyMastersTV.

Obviously, our first "Billy's Holiday Gift Giving Suggestion" is The Art of Bob Mackie. This luxurious book would make a perfect gift for anyone on your list. And, let me point something out: Last week, we recommended a knit kit from Tom Daley. Shortly after we linked to his Winter Warmer Hat, the item sold out. Coincidence?

A frequent guest on "Billy Masters LIVE" is Mark MacKillop. Not only is he a talented actor and singer, but he's also the top fundraiser at Broadway Bares for three years in a row—and ain't so bad to look at. His 2022 calendar is chock full of "content"—and who doesn't need a little more of that in their lives? He's also donating 10% of the proceeds to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Grab ahold of it at Mark-MacKillop.MyShopify.com .

Channing Tatum just announced he's winching back into his G-string for yet another Magic Mike film. Well, first he's going on a diet. And then, Magic Mike's Last Dance will start filming—helmed by Steven Soderbergh, who directed the first flick. In this installment, Mike is an older stripper who takes a young newcomer under his wing—which I kinda thought was what he did with the universally loathed Alex Pettyfer.

This week's "Ask Billy" question also deals with hot men taking off their clothes. Larry in San Diego sent me a video and wrote: "I just found this footage from 'Naked Boys Singing' in Las Vegas—the guys are SO hot. I heard they were extending for a while. Do you know how long? After seeing this video, I want to make sure I see them."

Color me SHOCKED. You all know I went to see "Naked Boys Singing" in Las Vegas. I also hosted the boys on "Billy Masters LIVE"—and we even filmed a clothed version of their opening number. But the footage Larry sent me is of them performing FULLY NUDE! To answer his question, yes, the show has extended through March 6 and you can grab tickets at NakedBoysSingingVegas.com . And, if you wanna see this newly unearthed exclusive footage, you can check out BillyMasters.com .

When we've got actual NAKED boys singing … and extending, it's time to end yet another column. If this kinda footage interests you, check out BillyMasters.com—the site where lots of sons come out (a reference to Annie, which NBC recently aired). If you have a question (or a video you'd like to share), drop a note to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before we come up with footage of Jussie's "friends." (It's just a matter of time.) Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
