Yeah! We have nice asses.

—Canadian pop icon and newlywed Rufus Wainwright tells Vulture about his famously musical family’s resemblance to the von Trapps (full context: sister Martha had just remarked that the family looks good in lederhosen). The two Wainwrights were at a New York screening of Sing Me the Songs that Say I Love You, a concert film documenting their tribute last year to their mother, the late and very great Kate McGarrigle. [Vulture]
