Gay crooner Rufus Wainwright is playing the Borgata’s Music Box Theater in Atlantic City (Feb. 8) for one night only. We’ve been giving away a few tickets (a pair’s valued at $100) courtesy of the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for liking us on Facebook. But in honor of his appearance – and his new album Out of the Game, which was produced by the uber talented Mark Ronson), we wanted to countdown a few of our favorite Rufus quotes.

“I like to make the mundane fabulous whenever I can.”

“I’m disappointed that my parents didn’t give birth to a porn star.”

“Let the little fairy in you fly!”

“Everything I do, I feel is genius. Whether it is or it isn’t.”

“I’m your night in shining armor. I’m here to save you from Linkin Park.”

“There’s no life without humor. It can make the wonderful moments of life truly glorious, and it can make tragic moments bearable.”

“I may not lead the most dramatic life, but in my brain it’s War and Peace everyday.”

“I’d be hanging out in my bathrobe all day, stinky, just writing, and my mom allowed me to do this as long as I was writing songs. She said, ‘As long as you’re seriously working on music, I’ll support you. Don’t get a job, because if you work, it will crush you.'”

“I’ve developed into quite a swan. I’m one of those people that will probably look better and better as I get older until I drop dead of beauty.”

Here’s his latest video with none other than Helen Bonham Carter:
