Briefs: “Big Ass Spider,” RuPaul Drives Sharon Needles, And Julia Louis-Dreyfus Flips Out At Starbucks

Birthday shoutouts go to Paul and Morgan Hamm (above), who are 34, Ross Matthews is 34, and Nia Vardalos is 51.

Dane DeHaan on kissing Daniel Radcliffe in Kill Your Darlings: “We did it three times really fast. Then it was over, just like that. We looked at each other like, Holy shit. We just did it. Any time I have a love interest in a movie, it’s my job to actually fall in love with them. While I was making this movie, I totally fell in love with Dan.”

Elton again tries to explain why he’s going to Russia: “I’m not going to go into Russia and tell [Vladimir Putin] to go to hell and things like that. That’s not the way things are done. You chip away at something, and you hope there will be dialogue and that the situation can get better. You don’t just go in there with guns blazing and say, ’Well, to hell with you.’ Because they’re going to say, ’To hell with you, and get out of the country.’ That’s not going to solve anything. But if I can go there, maybe I can talk to some people in the administration.”

Big Ass Spider!

Sir Ian McKellen weighs in on Sochi.

I have to admit, I’m looking forward to this reunion.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus comes off as faboo and charming, but Jimmy Kimmel has revealed the truth. She’s a psycho timebomb. I always suspected …


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 … Jonathan Groff. In early 2007, Jonathan joined the cast of One Life To Live, and for one month played the role of troubled high-schooler Henry. His character’s storyline was supposed to end with Henry shooting up his school, but after a real-life school shooting, the producers nixed the idea, and poor Henry instead ended up crashing his car into a tree … teaching a valuable lesson about drugs and driving. Below you can see him spurned by a total bee-yotch … beginning his spiral into Afterchool Special territory.

And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90’S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90’s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80’s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.

At #35 is … “Somebody’s Baby” by Pat Benatar. Pat came back to pop/rock after a five year absence (in between which she recorded a blues album), and released Gravity’s Rainbow in 1993, and learned that if you stay away too long … bad things can happen. The album peaked at #85, becoming her first all-out flop, and the single “Somebody’s Baby” (which, like “Hell Is For Children,” took on a social cause) didn’t fare too well either. It didn’t even chart on the Hot 100.

Congrats to JohnEd , who was the first to correctly guess that Yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Dinosaurs.
