Big congrats to PA. Rep Brian Sims, who won reelection last night (technically, he just retained his seat, but he’ll face no Republican challenger in November).

Ted Cruz will name Carly Fiorina as his running mate if he wins GOP nomination. They deserve each other.

The Rhodes brothers scored a massive viral video last year when they filmed themselves coming out to their father, and here they are talking about when they came out to each other.


After bringing in Jennifer Hudson and Harvey Fierstein, NBC has added Martin Short and Derek Hough to the cast of Hairspray Live.

“Short will play Wilbur, the loving husband of Edna Turnblad (Harvey Fierstein), and Hough is set as Corny Collins, the cocky song-and-dance-man who hosts the TV show every teenager in Baltimore wants to be on.”

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 and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition.

This week our 163rd ShoutOUT™ is to … Sam Tsui.


In 2010, Sam released his first album The Covers, which featured covers of hits from Journey, Beyoncé, Jason Mraz, Lady Gaga, and others, and he made appearances on Oprah, and below you can see an exuberant visit to Ellen and a mash-up of “Firework” and “Grenade.”


Most Briefs lists involve the “best” or “greatest” of something, so for a change let’s switch it up, as Evil Snicks brings you The 30 Worst Music Videos Of All Time.

You’ll see debacles from major musical artists, as well as a few Youtube “stars.” Sure, it’s really easy to pick on desperate wannabes. It’s fun, too. But it proves that terrible can run the gamut from multi-million dollar productions to, well, a certain video named after a day of the week. You know the one.

At #8 is “Whatzupwitu” by Eddie Murphy and Michael Jackson.

Remember when Eddie Murphy tried to vomit up a music career? He had one big hit (“Party All The Time”) that was a hit only because of Rick James, and Eddie’s further output stunk to high heaven, culminating in this monstrosity.

Not only did 1993’s “Whatzupwitu” (and the album it came from) fail to chart, he somehow roped Michael Jackson into appearing in what would be the most embarrassing moment of both their careers.
