Rowwwrrrr! If 2011 is gonna come swingin’ in like Thor’s meaty Chris Hemsworth, then drop that damn Times Square ball already!
In many ways, it’s been a great year for us gays. DADT was repealed, the Scissor Sisters came out with a new album, and Ricky Martin is finally batting for our team…openly!
There is a lot more to come in 2011, some things you should know, should hope for, and should be excited for…
Leonardo DiCaprio will start making out with Armie Hammer…hopefully
Leo and Armie: Spies like us???
How many politicos supposedly led secret homo lives? Hitler and Lincoln come to mind (hopefully the only time those two will be the same sentence). Apparently J. Edgar Hoover was another one. A new film, currently titled J. Edgar (how chummy), starring Leonardo DiCaprio will reveal the very private side of J. Edgar Hoover’s life as both a homosexual and cross-dresser. The movie starts filming in 2011 and sadly won’t be released till 2012 but we can always look forward to those on-set photos. The film also stars Judi Dench, and Armie Hammer, as J. Edgar Hoover’s lover. The script is by Oscar-winner and scandal-avoider Dustin Lance Black and directed by the oh-so-gritty Clint Eastwood.
More Gaga…More Outfits
The Santa-Doll defacing, meat-dress wearing, free bitch is back (though she never really went away) with a new album to be released in 2011. Lady Gaga twatted on Christmas that she has an announcement to make on New Years Eve about her new album Born This Way…which Elton John says is “the new gay anthem”. Get excited. The Monster Ball definitely continues into 2011.
The Return of Kate Winslet and Todd Haynes
Kate is serving 1940s executive waitress mom realness. She wurks hard for the money!
Who could replace Joan Crawford as Mildred Pierce? Kate Winslet, of course. Todd Haynes (Velvet Goldmine, Far From Heaven) adapted and directed this five-part mini-series from the original novel by James M. Cain about a woman (Winslet) attempting to retain her social status during the Great Depression. The series premieres on HBO in March.
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark Will Hopefully Never Open
Natalie Mendoza to Spidey: Sling this! I’m out!
After what sounds like a terrible, unfaithful storyline, a lame (unexplained) title, and mounting injuries to the cast, some one in Broadway’s Spider-Man has finally had it: the villain, Arachne, played by actress Natalie Mendoza, is calling it quits. So now that one of the cast members is walking again after back surgery, a major cast member has quit due to a recent concussion, and opening has been delayed several times we’re hoping this disaster of musical theater will never open.
Cher is working on two more chances to make up for Burlesque… Or top it!
Two of gaydom’s faves together at last???
Cher will lend her recognizable voice to the role of the Giraffe in the upcoming animated film The Zookeeper. Her character, and other animals in the Zoo, will help their zookeeper find romance. Cher is also developing a film The Drop Out, also starring Johnny Knoxville. About an immature guy who moves out of his parents house only to shack up with the sexy neighbor next door (who else but Cher?) and become a father figure to her son. As well all know, Cher was the original cougar. Bagels, anyone?
Pretty Serious Movies!
Tree of Life trailer
Pretty Ass-Kicking Movies!
Still More Portman Oscar Nods Ahead???
Fashion and Beauty with a Message…
German director Sherry Hormann adapted Waris Dirie’s book Desert Flower chronicling the model and activist’s trek across Somalia to arrive in Britain only to be discovered by photographer Terence Donovan and later become an activist for women’s rights in Africa.
Urchins are the hot new gay wizard boy-toy accessory must-have maybe?
After making a startling announcement that Dumbledore was a homosexual following the publishing of the last Harry Potter novel we’re wondering if we’ll sense some gay chemistry between Dumbledore and his old friend Grindelwald …And that’s right you, you recognize him from Sweeney Todd. Maybe he’ll be singing “Dumbledore” instead of “Joanna.”
A new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race premieres in January. Duh.
What are you most looking forward to in 2011?
