Let your mercy spill

Antony's performance of Leonard Cohen's "If It Be Your Will" breaks my heart. Antony walked by Catbird a few weeks ago, and a customer leaving the store exclaimed, "I know who you are! I love you!" The very tall man all in white looked down and very warmly and benevolently clucked at her. Like a mama hen. It was lovely.

On a side note, do you think his sweater inspired Rodarte?

I saw him do a duet with Bjork at Radio City (sidenote: obsessed with their Egyptian-themed bathrooms) and they held hands and jumped up and down together like they were being tugged by a platoon of balloons.
