Pet Shop Boys: Gettin' Zhuzhy With It!

Pet Shop Boys
cover the June/July OUT and have a chat with Andrew Sullivan. Neil Tenant describes gay London circa '73 (when he first arrived) as being very zhuzhy. Sullivan requests a translation:

Zhuzhy means sort of fabulous, maybe trailing a scarf, maybe wearing nail varnish, very fashion-y, maybe with long hair that you flicked back over your shoulders. Zhuzhy. [Laughs] That’s what they used to say in London.
