Last season, PopWatch had a tiny love affair with a man named Poppycock. But ever since Michael Grimm dashed our big hopes for Gentleman Gaga, we’ve lost touch. So we launched a PopWatch Investigation (which was less work than a 48 Hours investigation, but more interesting than Crime Scene Investigation).

In my mind, I imagined Poppycock turning out his operatic tunes from the dark corner of a romantic, 18th century-style mansion in France, armed with an endless supply of hand-painted vases ripe for the tipping. Turns out I was a bit off. At least, that’s according to a video he posted on his YouTube account in April, which follow Poppycock’s adventures in Venice, where he traveled to perform in Il Ballo del Doge, a high-profile Venetian masquerade ball.

Additionally, Poppycock (real name John Andrew Quayle) been a vocal supporter of the LGBT community, performing last month at the annual fundraising talent show Rise Up and Shout: Voices Of The Next Generation in Hollywood.

While all notable accomplishments, is anyone else surprised we haven’t heard more from the performer once dubbed by Sharon Osbourne “the male Lady Gaga.” Is it time for a resurgence? Or has your interest faded, PopWatchers?
