Jodie Foster Marries Girlfriend Alexandra Hedison Congratulations, but I’m wondering how rambling and incoherent her vows were.


It looks as though that long-planned Will & Grace reunion may actually happen.

Oh no. Oh Dear God No. I haven’t thought of Avril Lavigne in years (if I ever really did), but what the hell happened that she would do this? What did that Nickelback guy do to her? WHY? WHY? WHY? “Let’s all slumber party like a fat kid on a pack of Smarties” What the hell are you doing?

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Rory O’Malley.

Continuing our look at Rory’s biggest success (so far) in The Book Of Mormon, here’s an episode of “The Book Of Rory,” where he takes us backstage.

We’re shifting the focus of the latest Briefs List back to the greatest aspect of 80’s pop culture … the music, which remains the ultimate pop music decade. For this list, we’re going to focus on the ladies, and countdown the The Top 100 Hits Of The Ladies Of the 80’s. There are only two rules: all the songs had to hit the Billboard Top Ten, and they’re all sung by women … whether solo or with a group. Ready to jog your memory?

At #39 is “Walk Like An Egyptian” by The Bangles. The near-novelty third single from Different Light, it almost wasn’t included on the album, but ended up the biggest hit of their career, spending four weeks at #1 starting in December 1986, and was Billboard’s #1 song of 1987.
