ru-cher

Chaz Bono and Georgia Holt had a kiki with the dolls on RuPaul’s Drag Race this week, but Cher actually paid a visit to the Drag Queen of All Media’s original talk show way back in 1997, just a year before her “Believe” comeback and somewhere between face-lifts.

On the show, Cher chatted about meeting the Pope, guys she’d want to shag, and why she loves being a girl. Turns out Cher and Ru have something in common—and it’s not just an impeccable Cher impersonation. Cher also performs lip-synchs for her life to a song from her then-latest album, It’s A Man’s World, a statement she would later contradict to gyrating effect years later.

mchale-molympics

Joel McHale’s dry deadpan delivery is the perfect foil to host with the most Billy Eichner’s…shall we say “enthusiasm.” For his latest segment of Billy On the Street, Eichner has McHale compete in the Mo’Lympics. Why it took someone this long to dedicate an athletic competition in honor of Oscar-winning actress and talk show host Mo’Nique is beyond me. I’ve been waiting to throw a TV at Gabourey Sidibe for five years.

McHale crushes the Mo’lympic Games, successfully carrying a sample of Mo’s urine in his mouth, playing tug-o-war with a human Oscar statue and literally bowling over her competition for the win. After snatching the gold, however, things turn sour between Joel and Billy. Turns out Joel loves him some Jake Gyllenhaal — someone has to, right? — and Billy goes. OFF.

Words are soon exchanged. Harsh words. Words such as Billy taunting Joel (still trapped in his bowling ball), “Have fun getting raped by a homeless man tonight!”, to which Joel responds, “That’s preferable to being on your show. You hear that! I would rather be penetrated by a dirty man!”

monique

Sounds like a lost scene from Precious: Based on the Novel “That Took A Turn” by Sapphire, but I digress. Billy steps up to Joel’s challenge, meaning A.) everybody wins and B.) Mo’Lympics just took on a completely different meaning:

The Pew Research Center took it upon themselves to find out which country is the biggest stick in the mud with its Global Views on Morality survey. Over 40,000 people in 40 countries were asked a series of questions on moral issues, including, “Do you personally believe that homosexuality is morally acceptable, morally unacceptable, or is it not a moral issue?”

Ghana trounced the competition with an overwhelming 98% of respondents finding homosexuality “morally unacceptable.” The rest of the top 10 most homophobic nations list  is held down almost exclusively by African and Middle Eastern nations, with Russia coming in at a respectable [?] #14.

Though as staunchly Catholic as any nation out there, Spain is apparently the most gay-friendly, with only 6% of respondents finding homosexuality morally unacceptable. 38% didn’t find it a moral issue at all, which is nothing compared to France and Canada, in which 50% of respondents felt similarly.

As for the U.S., it’s the 29th least accepting, or 19th most accepting nation, depending on if you’re a glass half-full/half-empty kinda gal. 37% of American respondents think homosexuality is morally unacceptable; 23% think it is morally acceptable; and 35% don’t think it’s a moral issue at all.

So the moral of the story is: Canada. The end.

Robin-Williams_612x380

Mrs. Doubtfire is getting a sequel more than 20 years after Robin Williams first donned a wig and fat suit.

Fox 2000 Pictures is developing a sequel to the 1993 comedy, with Williams reuniting with original director Chris Columbus, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and Elf writer David Berenbaum drafting the script. Details of the plot haven’t been revealed, nor has whether or not Sally Field or other Doubtfire co-stars will appear in the sequel.

The original Mrs. Doubtfire saw Williams, now starring on CBS’ The Crazy Ones, playing an estranged dad trying to spend more time with his kids by pretending to be their kindly old housekeeper. The film was a box-office bonanza, earning more than $440 million worldwide.

Guess Williams doesn’t want Tyler Perry and Martin Lawrence to be the only ones raking in that old-lady-drag money. But, at 62, will he need much makeup?

yves saint laurent

Newcomer Pierre Niney plays the iconic French fashion designer in Yves Saint Laurent, which launched a new trailer this week. Directed by Jalil Lespert, the film chronicles his early years and rise to international acclaim, his battles with the fashion establishment, and his relationship with longtime love Pierre Bergé (Guillaume Gallienne).

Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 6.09.22 PM

Paris, 1957: 21-year-old Yves is catapulted to international stardom as the successor to Christian Dior, who has recently died. At his first catwalk show he meets Pierre Bergé, who will become his lover and business partner, and begins a relationship that will change his life forever.

Just a few years later however he’s subjected to the public humiliation of being fired by Dior. Refusing to succumb to his critics and self-doubt, he creates the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house and presents the first ‘ready-to-wear’ collection, shocking the world of couture.

Yves Saint Laurent follows the designer as he attempts to democratize fashion against the backdrop of 1960s liberation, battling his personal demons to build an empire that would be renowned for liberating women all over the world.

The film premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February, and has been picked up by the Weinstein Company with a U.S. release date of June 25.

pick-up

What happens when a straight dude goes around Los Angeles picking up other dudes? A whole mess of awkward moments. Case in point, try using this line the next time you’re at the bar or clurb:

pick-up-1

Not gonna lie, I was afraid at some point that Homeboy was going to get punched in the face, because that’s what society taught me. But aside from a virulently homophobic West African man, most of his would-be suitors take it in stride. Some are even down for it.

pick-up-4

It doesn’t hurt that he’s clearly packing a little junk in that trunk, too.

Meanwhile, the only man to drop an F-bomb is the morbidly obese dude on the Jazzy, thus proving what he always thought: all those gay guys just want a piece of him.

pick-up-3

If anything this video shows that it never hurts to ask. Because even while wearing those god awful toe shoes, Homeboy still got him some digits.

If you clicked through to this post then you know—or don’t mind learning—that Prince King Joffrey Baratheon, the huntiest bitch on Game of Thrones, kicked it after downing some tainted wine in last week’s episode.

We’re glad Joffrey’s dead, but HBO has assembled this tribute reel—in which various characters spew some serious praiseworthy horseshit about the sadistic inbred imp-lord. We’ll just assume they were talking about Jack Gleeson, who played the twisted twink brilliantly for four seasons.

Bryan-Singer-Photo-620x400
Bryan Singer—the openly gay director of Apt Pupil, Superman Returns and the X-Men films—is being accused of sexually abusing a 17-year-old in the late 1990s.

TheWrap is reporting on a lawsuit being filed by a now-adult Michael Egan:

Defendant, BRYAN JAY SINGER, manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries. Defendant Singer did so as part of a group of adult males similarly positioned in the entertainment industry that maintained and exploited boys in a sordid sex ring. A Hollywood mogul must not use his position to sexually exploit underage actors.

Singer’s attorney says the case is without merit:

We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit,” said Martin Singer. “It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan’ s new movie is about to open in a few weeks.”

 x-men days of future pastX-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters on May 23.

The abuse allegedly began in 1998, when Egan, an aspiring actor-model, attended a party in Encino, CA,  where Singer and former Digital Entertainment Network chairman Marc Collins-Rector were in attendance.

The two allegedly gave Egan drugs and alcohol and told him to keep the men at the party “happy” if he wanted a career. Egan also alleges Collins-Rector, a convicted sex offender, threatened his family.

Approximately 2-3 months after Collins-Rector began sexually abusing Plaintiff, Defendant Singer was socializing with Collins-Rector around the estate’s swimming pool and Plaintiff was in the pool. In compliance with the “rules” imposed by Collins-Rector that people in the pool area were not allowed to wear clothes, Plaintiff was nude as was Defendant Singer.

Collins-Rector ordered Plaintiff out of the pool, and Defendant Singer hugged Plaintiff and grabbed his bare buttocks. They then went to the jacuzzi where Collins-Rector had Plaintiff sit on his lap and fondled Plaintiff’s genitals. Collins-Rector then passed Plaintiff to Defendant Singer and Plaintiff was made to sit on Defendant Singer’s lap.

Defendant Singer provided an alcoholic beverage to Plaintiff and mentioned finding a role for him in an upcoming movie that he was directing. Defendant Singer told Plaintiff how “this group” controls Hollywood, and that he was sexy. Defendant Singer masturbated Plaintiff and then performed oral sex upon him. Defendant Singer solicited Plaintiff to perform oral sex upon him which Plaintiff resisted.

Defendant Singer flagrantly disregarded Plaintiff’s unwillingness to submit, and forced Plaintiff’s head underwater to make Plaintiff perform oral sex upon him. When Plaintiff pulled his head out of the water in order to breathe, Defendant Singer demanded that he continue which Plaintiff refused. Defendant Singer then forced Plaintiff to continue performing oral sex upon him outside of the pool, and subsequently forcibly sodomized Plaintiff.

Egan later joined Singer and Collon-Rector on vacations in Hawaii, where the teen was reportedly raped.

 Defendant Singer frightened Plaintiff by pushing him into the pool, and rebuked Plaintiff for his attitude and reminded him that he was there to keep people happy. Defendant Singer put a handful of cocaine against Plaintiff’s nose and forced him to inhale it. Defendant Singer then provided Plaintiff with a beverage which he drank which significantly impacted his consciousness and his motor skills.

Defendant Singer then entered the pool where he non-consensually masturbated Plaintiff and performed oral sex upon him. Defendant Singer caused Plaintiff to rub his erect penis against Defendant Singer’s buttocks. He forced Plaintiff’s head underwater and made Plaintiff orally copulate him. He then caused Plaintiff to get out of the pool and lie face down on a lounge chair. To continue the sexual assault, Defendant Singer spit on Plaintiff’s buttocks, spanked him, and forced a handful of cocaine onto Plaintiff’s face.

He then anally raped Plaintiff. He subsequently caused them to go to the jacuzzi where he provided another beverage to Plaintiff. Defendant Singer attempted to insert his penis into Plaintiff’s mouth which Plaintiff resisted, but he ultimately was able to force his penis into Plaintiff’s mouth. Defendant Singer then assisted Plaintiff to their room where he again anally raped Plaintiff.

Attorney Jeff Herman, who is representing Egan, is seeking an unspecified amount in damages for battery, assault, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Herman says he will file more lawsuits against Singer and others involved in the alleged parties.

During the filming of Singer’s Apt Pupil in 1997, a 14-year-old extra filed a lawsuit alleging that Singer forced him and other teens to strip naked for a shower scene. The case was dismissed due to do lack of evidence.

On Monday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the girls tested their mettle as talk-show hosts and stalked the runway in animal-inspired outfits. Alas, Trinity K. Bonet landed in the dog pound and was sent home.

Below, Trinity talks to Michele Visage about being on the show, the looks we didn’t get to see, and her growth as a performer.

burning blue top gun

Burning Blue, the new drama from writer-director DMW Greer, recounts an illicit affair tween two male Navy pilots in the era of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. If that sounds a little Top Gun meets Brokeback Mountain, you should know the film is based on Greer’s 1992 off-Broadway play of the same name.

Lionsgate is distributing the film, which boasts a pretty impressive cast, including  Trent Ford (Gosford Park), Morgan Spector (Boardwalk Empire), Rob Mayes (The Client List) and Tammy Blanchard (Life with Judy Garland).

Burning Blue lands in theaters and on VOD on June 6.

Morgan Spector discusses the film and his role

There will undoubtedly be shade thrown on the set of ABC’s The View next month when all 11 hosts, past and present, reunite to bid a fond farewell to founding cast member Barbara Walters on May 15.

The show is as famous for backstage (and onstage) feuds between panel members, who have included Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Joy Behar, Debbie Matenopoulos, Lisa Ling, Rosie O’Donnell, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and current hosts Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy, Walters and Whoopi Goldberg.

Rosie and Elizabeth Hasselbeck on the same stage—with cameras rolling? We are so there. (Not to mention Miss “I don’t believe in vaccines” Jenny McCarthy.)

Walter is the last of the original hosts of The View, which debuted in August 1997. Her final episode will air May 16.

We always thought “gay jeans” were just the ones that made your ass look good, but Betabrand is marketing jeans that show their pride the more you wear them.

“Gay Jeans begin life looking and acting like regular five-pocket denim jeans, but as they experience normal washing and wearing over the course of their life, their indigo dye gradually fades away, revealing fabulously colorful yarns just waiting to come out,” explains Betabrand designer Steven B. Wheeler.

Wheeler insists the jeans will show their rainbow colors “when they’re good and ready” (translation: after one or two washes) but if you want to speed things up, rub the fabric with sandpaper or a nice six-inch stiletto.

The Gay Jeans began as a crowdfunding campaign, but has more than met its goal, and pairs will start shipping in August. The jeans retail for $98 but 10% of proceeds benefit the San Francisco LGBT Center.

When you ask “What’s so gay about Glee?” the obvious answer is “everything.” But we’re here to break down the queerest bits of Glee into bit-sized morsels for your enjoyment. Think of us as your gay cheat sheet to Glee fandom. 

The hard realities of New York life continues to affect our heroes’ sex lives: Sam and Mercedes discuss it, Artie is having too much of it and, well, Klaine aren’t having any. Bu all in all, from sailor suits to bubble butts, Glee this week left us with a huge smile on our face.


glee blaine
5. Hello Sailor! This week opens with a throwback venereal-disease PSA featuring the men of Glee in vintage sailor suits. Their plucky reactions to the horrors of STDs (and Blaine’s cheery reaction to being called a “dapper homosexual”) was just too charming. We love it.


blaine4. Bad Thoughts When Blaine Shoves An Entire Cronut In His Mouth. We’re sorry, we’re awful. But come on—watching him shove and entire cronut in his mouth was just too much.


Blaine_Butt3Welcome Back Glee‘s Favorite Guest Star: Blaine’s Butt. Blaine’s perfectly round ass was celebrated by various characters in seasons past. It made its big NYC debut last night in a pants-splitting moments. Unfortunately, Blaine’s bubble butt caused drama for him this episode—giving him body image issues, creating a rift between him and Kurt, and leading him to go on a diet.

Embrace your booty, Blaine. We certainly want to.


glee516img32. Announcing New Guest Star: Kurt’s Biceps. In fact, Kurt’s whole body. We’ve been getting peeks at Kurt’s new physique for a while now, but this episode really brought it into focus. Boxer-brief clad Kurt doing pushups (because all TV men wear boxers), the boys of the combat class admiring his looks and Kurt himself talking about his newfound confidence during his voice-over.

We’re glad his new buffness didn’t cause a permanent rift between him and Blaine, because we’re expecting a lot more shirtless Kurt scenes in the future.


1. Love Is A Battlefield. The Klaine tension was delicious and refreshingly realistic this episode. (Yes, when two men get together there can be a sense of competition.) It was perfectly encapsulated in their duet to Pat Benatar’s “Love Is A Battlefield,” and some well-choreographed stage combat. Their heartfelt discussion about Blaine’s worries and emotions, and Kurt’s reassurances, were icing on the cake. Just keep that cake away from Blaine—he’s going on a cleanse.

We thought we knew everything there was to love about Kylie Minogue’s latest single, “Sexercise”—a funky beat, suggestive lyrics, a great video (and really gay “reinterpretation“). But singer-model Mike Munich has us reconsidering with his mega-hot cover, featuring Munich and a group of Adonises getting their fitness on.

We’re fairly certain Miss Minogue would approve of “Sexercise 2.0.” (If not, we guess Mike will hear from her lawyers.)

Magic Mike XXL, the sequel to Stephen Soderbergh’s critically and commercially successful male-stripper drama, will hit theaters in July 2013, Variety reports.

Related: “Magic Mike 2″ Definitely Happening, Says Joe Manganiello

The original, starring Channing Tatum as the titular rumpshaker, grossed more than $167 million worldwide in 2012, despite costing only $7 million. Warner Bros has pegged the followup for July 3, 2015, putting it up against the next Terminator film over the long Independence Day weekend.

“Yeah, it’s gonna happen this fall. I think they’re going to announce it soon,” co-star Joe Manganiello told Collider recently. “It’s crazy. I didn’t think that would be my first franchise… I can’t wait to get back in and mix it up with those guys.”

Production will begin in the fall, with Gregory Jacobs (first assistant director on Behind the Candelabra, Traffic, Ocean’s Eleven and the first Magic Mike) will direct, with a script co-written by Tatum and Reid Carolin, who collaborated on the original.

Tatum and Manganiello have confirmed they’ll be in it but it’s not clear if Matt Bomer, Alex Pettyfer or Matthew McConaughey will make a appearance.

The post Marriage Equality Makes Healthier Families, According To New England Journal Of Medicine appeared first on NewNowNext.

]]>
modern family suarezThe esteemed New England Journal of Medicine is reporting on the health benefits of marriage equality.

“Public health research has suggested not only that discriminatory environments and bans on same-sex marriage are detrimental to health but also that legalizing same-sex marriage contributes to better health for LGBT people,” writes Gilbert Gonzales.

A 2011 report by the Institute of Medicine put a spotlight on LGBT health, including unequal access to health care by LGBT people who cannot put their children or partners on their insurance. (About 55% of Americans are covered through their own or a family member’s employer-sponsored health insurance plan.)

The NEJM piece also reveals that states with marriage equality, like California and Massachusetts, report fewer mental health care visits for gay men and less psychological distress for those in same-sex relationships in general. “LGBT people living in states that ban same-sex marriage… are more likely than their counterparts in other states to report symptoms of depression, anxiety, and alcohol use disorder,” the article reads.

“Same-sex marriage, therefore, remains an important health policy issue and relevant to the public policy goal of expanding access to health care through employer-sponsored health plans,” concludes Gonzales. “Given the partisan divide in Washington, individual states are better positioned to advance protections for LGBT families in 2014.”

indiaIndia’s highest court has ordered the government to recognize transgender as a “third sex”, and to include trans people in education, health care and job-placement programs.”

“This verdict has come as a great relief for all of us. Today I am proud to be an Indian,” said Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, a transgender activist who petitioned the court.

India has a complex relationship with trans identity: Hijra, who are born male but identify as trans or third-gender, have been around since antiquity and often performed religious rites, but are now often marginalized and persecuted.

The ruling will allow those who have undergone gender-affirmation surgery to identify as their chosen gender on documents and identification. A series of public campaigns will also work to lessen the stigma attached to the trans community on the sub-continent.

Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan had this to say about the decision:

[The] recognition of transgender [people] as a third gender is not a social or medical issue but a human rights issue … Transgenders are citizens of this country and are entitled to education and all other rights.

Unfortunately, the  ruling does not address the recent court decision to re-criminalize homosexuality in India.


Obama Attends Easter Prayer Breakfast At White House

President Obama asked openly gay Bishop Gene R0binson to deliver the closing prayer at the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast on Monday. Robinson, who was the nation’s first openly gay Episcopalian bishop, shared the news in a tweet

Robinson, who presided over a prayer during Obama’s inaugural festivities in 2009, said his benediction “was totally off the cuff.”


sultan of bruneiBrunei has updated its criminal code to call for death by stoning for same-sex sexual activity. Previously, homosexual conduct was punishable by up to ten years in prison.

Although Brunei hasn’t actually executed anyone since 1957, the country has also adopted stoning as a punishment for adultery, rape, insulting the Koran and declaring oneself to be non-Muslim.

“Application of the death penalty for such a broad range of offenses contravenes international law,” said Rupert Colville, a spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. “Under international law, stoning people to death constitutes torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment and is thus clearly prohibited.”

A former British colony, Brunei has been ruled by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah (right) since 1967.


Cleveland-Gay-Games-Sign-x400Cleveland is ramping up for the Gay Games in August, but some conservative cab drivers aren’t excited about the event, taking place August 9 to 16.

The Plain Dealer reports that more than a dozen drivers from several taxi companies operating out of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport have refused to sport signage advertising the Games.

Patrick Keenan, general manager for Americab, said at least two of his Muslim drivers have opted out of the airport’s dedicated taxi program because of the Gay Games ads. “We don’t have any objections to the signage,” said Keenan. “We’re fully supportive of the Games. We’re not in concert with [those drivers] on that. We don’t share those views.”

Dancing With The Stars took a trip to the Magical Kingdom for last night’s Disney-themed episode of the saccharine competition series.  With a plethora of celebrities dancing numbers ranging from Frozen to The Lion King, the following routines are so sweet they might put you in a nostalgia induced diabetic coma.  Be warned!

Highlights of the night included Nene Leakes serving Cruella De Vil realness and James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd’s icy rendition of the Frozen anthem, “Let It Go”.

After all was said and done (spoiler alert!), Australian pop-star Cody Simpson was eliminated for his lackluster rendition of “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” while Maslow and Murgatroyd took the win for their number, which had judge Len Goodman proclaiming, “That would melt the coldest heart, even mine.”

While the “Chicken Dance” continues to be performed at weddings worldwide, some dance crazes come and go—and for that, we’re thankful. Today, we recall five choreographed numbers  we never want to see haunt the dance floor again.

If you’re too young to remember the “Achy-Breaky Heart,” here’s a grim visualization:

How True To The Facts Is “Orange Is The New Black”? http://www.newnownext.com/orange-is-the-new-black-real-life-alex-denies-claims-made-in-tv-show/04/2014/ http://www.newnownext.com/orange-is-the-new-black-real-life-alex-denies-claims-made-in-tv-show/04/2014/#comments Tue, 15 Apr 2014 18:15:54 +0000 http://www.newnownext.com/?p=149328 "We did not have sex in prison. Not even a little bit."

orange is the new black

As devotees know, the addictive prison drama Orange is the New Black is based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of her time behind bars on drug charges.

But now, the woman whom Laura Prepon’s Alex is based on is claiming the show takes some serious liberties with the facts.

Talking to Vanity Fair, Catherine Cleary Wolters explained:

We did not have sex in prison.  Not even a little bit … I was not Piper’s first, and I certainly did not seduce her … When we were traveling together I started developing a crush on her. And eventually that turned into a crazy mad love affair, but that was after she had already done the deed that made her complicit…

We were ghosts of the humans we had once been, milling about amongst hundreds of other human ghosts, shackled and chained, prodded through transport centers at gunpoint, moved through holding facilities.

Wolters says the subplot involving both women turning narc to the Feds, however, was accurate:  “Yes, I named her, she named me, and we all named each other—fact was, we all thought we were doing the right thing, confessing, getting protection, and saving ourselves from certain death at the hands of a Nigerian drug lord who we knew would soon find we had all been arrested.”

Despite any inaccuracies, Wolters, 51, still enjoys watching the show: “Who doesn’t want to see Donna from That ’70s Show have lesbian sex?”

Point taken.

Orange Is The New Black season 2 will premiere on Netflix in it’s entirey on June 6.

neil patrick harris

This headline was almost too easy: Neil Patrick Harris is the subject of a new Vanity Fair feature in which he poses with his new animal best friend.  Is that a snake in your pants, Neil, or are you just happy to see us?  Oh goodness, no, it’s a snake.  A really really big one.

Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the feature article tracks NPH’s rise from child star to sex symbol in anticipation of his role in the upcoming production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch:

Neil Patrick Harris at age 20, on the other side of four years as Doogie Howser, M.D. This is usually where the tabloid headlines start. A child star in a well-loved show? Welcome to oblivion. People will shout “Hey, Doog!” in the streets; VH1 will come calling when it’s time for I Love the 90s. What does N.P.H. do? He doubles down on his passions: magic and musical theater. Works at both (becomes president of the Magic Castle, in L.A.; stars in Rent, Cabaret, Assassins, Company) until he’s a revered practitioner in both fields. Adds a fiendishly funny dose of self-awareness (a scene-devouring role as himself in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle that makes the world say, “Holy sh*t, how awesome is that guy!”).

Naomi Campbell presented Ellen Page at the GLAAD Media Awards on Sunday, but in her comments she took a moment to call for more trans inclusiveness in the modeling world.

“And along with GLAAD, I encourage even more diversity in the fashion world—that includes welcoming trans models to the runways. Much love to Lea T and also to Carmen Carrera—and I know Carmen is in the house tonight. She’s in the fashion magazines W, Italian Vogue. Also just to note the recent Barney’s campaign [including trans models].

The truth is LGBT culture and fashion go hand in hand. They flourish in light of making bold and brave statements.

angela lansburyAngela Lansbury will be adding a new honor to her seemingly endless list: the prolific actress, whose career has spanned over seven decades, will now be recognized as Dame Angela Lansbury.

Best known for her role as the iconic Jessica Fletcher in the esteemed television series Murder She Wrote, Lansbury met with the Queen at Windsor Castle for a “lovely” ceremony, according to Sky News.  Dame Angela was joined by her son, his wife and her niece as she collected the award for her services to philanthropy and the arts.

Lansbury now joins an elite group of actresses who have also been made dames.  Others given the honorific include Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Penelope Keith.

The newly anointed lady had this to say about the ceremony:

It is a very proud day for me to be recognised by the country of my birth, and to meet the Queen under these circumstances is a rare and lovely occasion …  [The Oscar Award was] for my work in motion pictures and this is for the overall accomplishments of my life as an actress.

Lansbury’s latest endeavor has been working the stage at the Gielgud Theatre in London’s West End for a production of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit.  It is the first time in almost 40 years that she has been on the London stage, reprising the role which won her a Tony award on Broadway.

Congrats Angie!

Jennifer Hudson may have started out in gay clubs, but will we be hearing her new jam in our local haunts this spring?  ”Walk It Out” is her latest single, produced by the pioneering hip-hop mogul Timbaland.  J. Hud revealed the new track on her twitter just yesterday:

Hudson’s as-yet-untitled upcoming third studio album, which should be released in the near future, will feature collaborations with R&B superstars like Pharrell Williams, RedOne, and R. Kelly. Hudson had this to say about the new music:

What we’re doing feels so right that I never want to go home (from the studio). My sister and my manager will be sleeping on the couch while we work until 4 or 5am.

So, will you be #walkingitout to her new single?

The Masters - Final Round
Bubba Watson won the Augusta Masters on Sunday, coming back from a serious slump after winning in 2012. The ensuing press has made it clear Bubba is a good old boy—he celebrated his victory at a Waffle House, for Pete’s sake.

Not so good? Watson’s announcing last year that homosexuality is a sin, which he did in a discussion about out basketball player Jason Collins.

“The Bible says you’re not supposed to be gay,” Watson told Golfweek in May 2013. “I’ve met Jason, said, ‘Hey,’ to him, because he used to play for the Suns when I had the Suns tickets… I’m not saying he’s wrong, I’m saying I love him. If he called me right now and said, ‘Hey,’ or any person that was gay called me, I’d go to dinner with them any time. It’s just my belief system on the Bible says you can’t be gay. That’s a sin. So somebody living in sin I believe to be wrong.”

Does Tiger Woods say crap like this?

After his win on Sunday, Watson spoke to USA Today about Caleb, the son he and wife Angie adopted in 2012. “Every day I try to get better as a father. It’s like golf, I guess, it takes practice,” he confessed. “Caleb has changed my personality, changed who I am, and hopefully made me a better person.”

Here’s hoping.

Based on the novel Baby by Ira Levin, the NBC production will be a new interpretation of Roman Polanski’s classic horror film, this time set in Paris instead of New York.

While the trailer provides few details about ALL OF THEM WITCHES, we’re excited to see Saldana serving scared housewife realness, coming soon.

Dina Lohan Is “Writing” Her Memoir: 6 Things We Learned From This Week’s “Lindsay” http://www.newnownext.com/lindsay-lohan-skips-work-again-and-5-other-things-we-learned-this-week-on-lindsay/04/2014/ http://www.newnownext.com/lindsay-lohan-skips-work-again-and-5-other-things-we-learned-this-week-on-lindsay/04/2014/#comments Mon, 14 Apr 2014 19:07:11 +0000 http://www.newnownext.com/?p=149136 Plus: Lindsay abhors natural light—is she a vampire?

The post Dina Lohan Is “Writing” Her Memoir: 6 Things We Learned From This Week’s “Lindsay” appeared first on NewNowNext.

This week on Lindsay, Lindsay Lohan continued to deal with family drama, struggle with her sobriety, and shockingly, exhibited no ounce of work ethic whatsoever.

Here’s what you need to know about this week’s Lindsay:


dina lohan

Dina Lohan is “writing” an autobiography

And Orange Oprah is so unabashedly open about having a ghostwriter that she’s basically the anti-Aviva Drescher. It’s almost a shame that all that the book will really have to offer is lame Parent Trap puns and a clearance-bin companion for Lynne Spears’ memoir.


Lindsay skips work to hibernate (again)

Thanks to her supreme generosity, Lindsay agrees to appear on the cover of Elle Indonesia‘s anniversary issue—“just for exposure.” But at 3pm on the day of the shoot—three hours after the noon call time—Lohan’s rep shows up alone, and suggests that the shoot be postponed to a later date because Lindsay needs to catch up on sleep.

“That bitch, Lindsay! I can’t do it tomorrow because I have other things on my schedule,” says fashion editor Anindita Saryuf, who flew two days to attend the shoot. “And she wants a comeback?”

Really great job of making people want to work with you again, LiLo!


LL4

Lindsay is working on a “covert” project

When the Elle Indonesia team asks Matt Harrell why it was so important for Lindsay to sleep in all day instead of showing up, he responds by saying that she was up late working on a “covert” project he couldn’t disclose any further details on. Um, does this covert project involve Jaegerbombs and lines of blow off a restroom toilet seat?

Don’t call it a comeback, girl. No, but like, seriously. Don’t.


LL1

Lindsay hates natural lighting

Photographer Eric Silverberg, tapped by Elle to shoot the ginger starlet, informs Lindsay that he only works with natural lighting. But after she insists on five wardrobe changes, there’s not enough natural light left—thus extending the shoot to three. whole. days. Thanks to the missed deadlines, designers begin asking for their clothes back and Lindsay has to pluck from her own wardrobe. (“If I could list all the shoots that I should get credit for as ‘co-stylist’ it would be a full novel,” she says).

Rather than apologizing, Lindsay blames Silverberg for making the shoot so difficult and advises him to work with artificial lighting in the future. Later, when privately asked about what it was like to work with the Mean Girls star, Silverberg straight up laughs into the camera.


LL5

Lindsay still has a thing for knives

Back in 2007, photos of Lohan and Vanessa Minnillo posing provocatively with knives hit the Web. But the backlash clearly didn’t resonate with the troubled star: In this week’s episode, Lindsay steps behind the camera to film four of her friends  playing a game of “Dare” (who needs “Truth,” right?) As an open bottle of tequila is passed around, one Einstein pierces another’s ear with a big knife. Did we mention this all happens at 7:20am on the day of Lindsay’s rescheduled Elle Indonesia shoot.

Is this the type of covert project she was talking about?


Lindsay’s road to recovery includes a detour to the club

Lindsay is offered $100,000 for a two-hour appearance at Foxwoods Casino’s Halloween party. Drinks are flowing, Dina’s booty is bouncing, and Lindsay continues to insist she can stay sober around drunk people because of how much she loves to dance and socialize. Of course she’s already admitted to relapsing and missing AA meetings.

How encouraging is it that the only member of Lindsay’s “sober crew” who gets camera time admits he “had a drink here and there” and is not “a model AA member”?  Not very.


Lindsay Lohan - A Little More Personal (Official Album Cover)

BONUS THING WE LEARNED THIS WEEK: Lindsay has a giant print of her second album cover framed in her living room

Perhaps to serve as a subtle reminder to viewers that they’ll get far more insight into the troubled star’s life by listening to that record than by watching this entire docu-series? #JusticeForALittleMorePersonal(Raw)

Lindsay airs Sundays at 10pm on OWN

Jews will be celebrating their escape from Egypt tonight, but those more inclined towards Jesus are anticipating Easter.  Chloe Sevigny (played by Drew Droege of Funny Or Die‘s “Not Looking“), of course, has recently realized that the birth of her Lord and Savior is just around the corner.

What are Chloe’s Easter plans?  Giggling until she becomes energy, among other things.

Tonight is the first night of Passover, when Jews around the world will sit at the seder table and recount the Exodus from Egypt. Trust us, it’s gonna be a looong night. So to give you something to visualize while your niece is murdering the Four Questions, here are seven Semitic sweeties we certainly wouldn’t pass over.

For those of you not of the Jewish faith, think of it as a little boost to get you through a Monday.

Tom-of-Finland-stampThe U.S. Postal Service has announced it will release a new Harvey Milk stamp next month, but Finland has gone a step further: A new set of Tom of Finland stamps has been approved by the country’s postal service, Itella Posti.

Gay artist Touko Laaksonen’s homoerotic drawings have captured the imagination (and libido) for decades—creating an hypersexualized aesthetic that’s still employed today. While many of Laaksonen’s works are x-rated, none of the stamps will feature hardcore imagery when they’re released in September.

“Of course, the choice was discussed,” postal development director Markku Penttinen says of concerns about Laaksonen’s subject matter. “But we wanted to live in the year 2014.”

Tom of Finland is finally getting its artistic due, with a movie about Laaksonen underway and a recent ToF exhibition at L.A.’s Museum of Contemporary Art.

Anderson Cooper dropped his typically unflappable demeanor this week when homophobic pundit Damian Goddard  attacked the Silver Fox’s  supportive tweet about newly out NCAA basketball player Derrick Gordon.

Apparently the library is open at AC’s house.

Decal_mississippiAfter the Mississippi Legislature passed a new law enshrining anti-LGBT discrimination on religious grounds, a group of business owners are countering with a new campaign letting shoppers know “If you’re buying, we’re selling.”

The project spring up in Jackson, Mississippi’s Fondren neighborhood last week, and has since spread statewide, the Clarion Ledger reports. Decals bearing the message have been produced by Equality Mississippi.

“A lot of us were trying to counter the negative stuff from outside Mississippi,” explained barber shop owner Eddie Outlaw, who helped launch the effort. “We wanted to let people know – not just the LGBT community but the progressive community as a whole – that this doesn’t represent everybody here.”.


GaydayFriday was the nationwide Day of Silence, when students stopped speaking to raise awareness about school bullying. It was also when four students in Oregon decided to wear homophobic t-shirts with messages like “Gay is Not OK.”

“I don’t have a big problem with gay people,” said one student. “It’s just when they start parading around the school about how ‘we have a day of silence for gays, lesbians, transvestites’. It’s like, we don’t have a straight day.”

Sure you do: Every day that ends in d-a-y.


gay wedding marriageA judge has ruled that Ohio must recognize same-sex marriages legally performed in other jurisdictions. Judge Timothy Black’s 45-page ruling supported the case brought by four gay Ohio couples suing to have their marriages recognized on birth certificates:

The couples, all of whom were legally married in other states but have ties to Ohio through their children, or soon-to-be-born children, filed a lawsuit against the state to have their marriages recognized on birth certificates. They stated that being forced to list only one parent is a violation of their rights according to the U.S. Constitution.

Writes the Washington Blade:

Now that Black has handed down the decision, state officials in Ohio — Gov. John Kasich and Attorney General Mike DeWine — are expected to appeal the decision to the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. The officials may also independently seek a stay of the order requiring the state to recognize out-of-state same-sex marriages.

Ryan Murphy is like a gay renaissance man.  Flitting between genres and art-forms ranging from horror-television to musical theater, Murphy’s latest endeavor is a serious change of tone from the gory camp-fest of last season of American Horror Story.  Nonetheless, we’re very excited for his interpretation of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart, starring Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons and Taylor Kitsch.

In a lengthy but interesting piece from The Hollywood Reporter Ryan Murphy shares some thoughts on his work with the new HBO production:

Larry [Kramer] had his heart broken so many times.  I promised him I would not stop until it got made … At first, nobody wanted to produce it. People were frightened, worried that it would hurt their careers.

Larry [Kramer] is the toughest person I’ve ever met.  And the thing that touched me so much at the end was, he doesn’t understand that he doesn’t have to fight anymore. It was my fight to get it made, to make sure it’s good. I was just so moved because he felt so f—ing alone for so many years that even in success, even when he was proven right, he didn’t feel it.

The main actors also shared their thoughts on the new movie in a touching video, below.

The Normal Heart premieres on HBO on May 25th.

Johnny Weir has apparently decided to rekindle the romance with husband Victor Voronov: Page Six reports the former Olympic skater has cancelled plans to divorce his mate of two years.

Sources say Weir is moving back into the couple’s home today.

Weir announced the split in March—with Voronov declaring he was stunned by the news. In the acrimonious aftermath, Weir accused Voronov of defacing his valuable Birkin bag, and had previously filed domestic-violence charges claiming Voronov had bit him.

While he’s willing to take Johnny back, Voronov is allegedly demanding Weir publicly apologize for all negative comments, and that Weir’s mother stay out of their affairs.

Good luck with that one.

Robyn and Röyksopp are teaming up once-again for an upcoming five-track mini-album.  That’s right, The Kings and Queen of Scandinavian electropop, who just released their new single “Say It”, will be combining forces for the upcoming as-yet-untitled EP.

Robyn had this to say about the new project:

Svein and Torbjörn and I started working on new music in the beginning of 2013, Ive been going back and forth to Bergen to record and write with the boys up until recently. Collaborating with S & T is something I enjoy very much. In the beginning we just knew we wanted to do something together and then it started to feel more like a band thing than songs for a Röyksopp or Robyn album so we´re releasing this music together as a band you could say.

The new songs will drop on May 26th.  Until then, the group has gifted us with a teaser for the upcoming song “Monument”.  Check out the new jam, below!

We’re still undecided on who makes a better Quicksilver: Aaron Taylor Johnson or Evan Peters?  That being said, ATJ is winning some serious points for his recent photo-shoot with Men’s Health.
In the upcoming issue, ATJ talks weight gaining techniques and bulking up for his new roles:  ”I weighed 175 pounds in Kick-Ass 2 … For Godzilla, I was pushing 190.”  The British beauty also shared a few personal anecdotes:

As we were having breakfast in West Hollywood, Aaron Taylor-Johnson had given me a guided tour of his head scars.

‘Here’s one right there,’ he said, pointing to a spot just above his hairline. ‘See it? That’s from when I was a kid. I was sliding down my mate’s banister and bashed my head open. And the other one …’ His finger drifted to the back of his head. ‘I have no idea. So I must have been pretty paralytic. [That's Britspeak for 'drunk.'] I didn’t even know I had it until we started Godzilla and they cut my hair.’

Most people were too distracted by Zac Effron’s torso to pay attention to the rest of the proceedings at last night’s MTV movie awards.  Hey, no judgement! Those who could somehow still focus on the award acceptances were rewarded by a passionate Jared Leto who, after winning for Best On-Screen Transformation in Dallas Buyers Club, gave a rousing speech about the AIDS epidemic.

Choice quote:

Love who you want to love, live how you wish to live and never let anyone ever stop you from turning your dreams into your reality.

Leto has previously faced criticism over his handling of LGBT issues at other awards ceremonies, while other have praised him for his bravery in tackling such a difficult role.  Either way, it’s hard to argue against his passion and tact in the speech, below.

Jennifer Lopez at GLAAD Media Awards

Jennifer Lopez and her ABC Family show, The Fosters, were honored last night at the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles. The superstar singer-actress-producer was presented the Vanguard award by Tony winner Rita Moreno, who broke boundaries for Latino performers in the 1960s.

The Fosters, about a lesbian couple raising biological, adopted and foster children, received the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Drama Series for its debut season.

“We are so proud of this show, because our biggest hope is that it’s outstanding because it is doing the same for young people—helping them feel loved, understood, included—as Rita did for me, and as GLAAD does today,” said Lopez, who also thanked GLAAD for the work it’s doing in Spanish-language meida. “You all need to know that GLAAD is spreading the message of love and acceptance in English and en Espanol—el amor es el amor.”

Lopez also recounted the love and support she received from her lesbian aunt.

Marisa was my cool aunt. She was my mom’s older sister and she lived in New York City. I lived in the Bronx and she lived in Manhattan, it was like worlds away! She wanted to be an actress and I always wanted to be like her.

Marisa grew up gay in a time when it meant life could be very difficult and that her struggles were mostly kept to herself. It wasn’t until I got older that I really began to know and appreciate the difficulties she dealt with and the struggles of her community. I also realized the quiet lessons I had learned from my family of tolerance and acceptance.”

Watch Lopez’s speech below.

X-Men actress Ellen Page, who came out as a lesbian on Valentine’s Day, presented the Stephen F. Kolzak award to trans actress-activist Laverne Cox.

Other winners included NBC’s Days of Our Lives, which recently aired daytime’s first gay-male wedding, for Outstanding Daily Drama, as well as Behind the Candelabra (Outstanding TV Movie or Mini-Series), Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce (Outstanding Reality Program),  Tegan and Sara, Heartthrob (Outstanding Musical Artist), Marvel’s Young Avengers (Outstanding Comic Book). Legendary TV producer Norman Lear (All in the Family, Good Times) received the Pioneer Award.

Also at the event: Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory), Jordan Gavaris (Orphan Black), Eric Dane (Grey’s Anatomy), Alex Newell (Glee); Naomi Campbell (The Face); Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries); Carmen Carrera (RuPaul’s Drag Race) Ross Mathews (Hello Ross), Teri Polo, Sheri Saum and Peter Paige of The Fosters); Lucas Neff (Raising Hope); Kelly Osbourne (Fashion Police), Luke Newberry (BBC 4′s In the Flesh), documentarians Shane Bitney Crone and Linda Bloodworth-Thomason (Bridegroom); vlogger Hannah Hart, Jill Soloway and Amy Landecker of Transparent, Natasha Henstridge, Meghan McCain, B Scott, Maria Menounos, Chaz Bono, GLAAD spokespeople Wilson Cruz and Omar Sharif, Jr., and GLAAD president Sarah Kate Ellis.

Additional awards will be presented at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on May 3.

mad men parody

Mad Men returns tonight for its seventh and final season and, while the period drama has occasionally touched on the 1960s civil-rights movement, it still remains fairly lily-white.

Enter “Don-o-Mite,” a blaxploitation parody that pulls no punches with a race reversal that sees tough-as-nails ex-con Don Draper dropped into the mad world of Madison Avenue. It’s more sizzle than substance, but we love Slim Sterling and his switchblade, “Sugar Hills” Holloway and her sass, and Black Peggy pitching Jet Black Airways.

What makes this clip even more amazing is that its actually a viral promo for legit New York ad agency Leroy and Clarkson. Pretty ballsy move, fellas.

The post Toronto: A Guide To The Gay Mecca Of The Great White North appeared first on NewNowNext.

]]>
CN_Tower_2Toronto has it all: arts and entertainment, culture and commerce, fashion and cuisine. Canada’s business hub is also its largest city, with a population of 2.5 million—twice that, if you include the greater metropolitan area.

And as more people flock to T.O., its diversity and offerings have only increased.

What’s true of Toronto as a whole is doubly so when it comes to the city’s vibrant gay community. This nexus of queer Canadian culture and history is the place to be, not only for the hometown gays but for the millions of visitors who flock here annually.

We swung through some of Toronto’s hottest neighborhoods, with a special focus on the West Queen Street West and the Gay Village. West Queen West (or just Queen West) is Toronto’s hipster mecca, trendy and upcoming yet still somewhat seedy, with an impressive mix of shops and galleries. Here are the highlights:


1. The Drake Hotel
Queen West’s crown jewel, this magnificently restored boutique hotel has 19 eclectic rooms from cheapo “crash pads” to more deluxe accomodations. But The Drake isn’t just a great place to sleep—the building also boasts a stellar restaurant; the rooftop Sky Yard and the Drake Underground, a notable performance venue that’s hosted Grizzly Bear, Beck and La Roux.


2. Queen West Shopping
Queen West is chock full of coffee shops, thrift shops and galleries. It’s known as the Art and Design District, and you won’t escape its clutches without at least a few shopping bags in hand. For design aficionados who want a carefully curated experience, Inabstracto is a must, as is Verso, its store-within-a-store, while BYOB Cocktail Emporium features a mind-blowing array of alcohol-related accessories.

As for clothing, we loved Philistine for both new and vintage items, as well as Oliver Spencer and The Future of Frances Watson. If you’re in the mood for literary fare, stop into The River Trading Company down the street: It’s an impressive vintage bookstore that’s also the perfect spot for a rom-com-style  meet-cute.


3. The Melody Bar at the Gladstone
Nightlife in Toronto runs the gamut from clubs and dive bars to live music venues. For our money, though, you won’t have more fun than drinking late into the night at the Melody Bar at the Gladstone Hotel.

The Gladstone was one of the first outposts of hipsterdom on the West Side: The lovingly restored hotel on West Queen West features 37 differently themed rooms where the party never ends. (Don’t believe me? Each room also comes with earplugs.) The Melody Bar boasts award-wining bartenders, a legendary Saturday karaoke night and an artsy but welcoming décor.


994682_678057652225999_803249177_n4. Tour the Gay Village

Church and Wellesley is Toronto’s LGBT enclave, roughly bordered by  Gerrard Street to the south, Yonge Street to the west, Charles Street to the north, and Jarvis Street to the east. The main commercial drag (pun intended is along Church Street from Wellesley to Alexander.

We had the privilege of touring the Church-Wellesley Village with Liz Devine of Rainbow Travel, who showed us the ins and outs of this historic neighborhood. The streets are lined with an assortment of gay-owned-and-operated restaurants, stores and bars like Woody’s, Sky Yard at the Drake, Pegasus and Zipperz/Cellblock. (If the area starts to look familiar, that’s because the American version of Queer As Folk filmed here).

The Village is also peppered with noteworthy landmarks like the Alexander Wood statue (left), honoring the city’s queer pioneer, and an AIDS memorial dedicated in 1993.


5. The 519 Center
The 519 Church Street Community Centre is the beating heart of the Village. With dozens of programs aimed at the complete extent of LGBT life– meet-ups for teens, seniors and everyone in between, queer parenting resources, 12-step programs, support groups, various arts and entertainment options– there’s something for everyone at the center. They even run the Fabernak, a full-scale restaurant that also serves as a training ground for employees (queer and otherwise) to gain both work experience and on-the-job training. If only every city had a 519 Center!


glad day6. Glad Day Book Shop
Billed as the world’s oldest LBGT bookstore, the Glad Day Book Shop might also be the world’s best. Up a long flight of stairs, the small shop boasts an impressive collection, from queer classics to modern gay YA. Though in recent years the store was threatened with closure, a consortium of concerned patrons banded together to buy the store and have kept it running in style. More than 40 years since it first opened, the shop still manages to proudly chug along.


7. Places to Eat
There’s no more shame in Toronto’s game, as the city has truly become a dining destination in recent years for foodies of all stripes. For lunch in the Ossington Strip, we opted for Cubano food at Delux, where the empanadas were particularly delicious. For dinner, try Sassafraz in Yorkville. This old favorite didn’t disappoint, serving elegant and savory seasonal fare that left us wanting everything on the menu.

Another great option is The Black Hoof, where it’s all about the charcuterie platter and, for the more adventurous, the bone marrow or sweetbreads.


kensington market

8. Kensington Market
Kensington Market and its surrounding area charm both tourists and locals with a full range of epicurean and aesthetic delights. Tucked in behind a sprawling Chinatown in the center of the city, Kensington makes for a great Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 8.10.14 PMside trip, post dim sum. (Try Lai Wah Heen on Chestnut).

The neighborhood was formerly the epicenter of Jewish culture, but today it’s a perfect reflection of the many cultures that make up the melting pot that is Toronto, with over 30 different cultures living shoulder-to-shoulder there. So many little hidden gems await: Cheese Magic, My Market Bakery, Chocolate Addict, House of Spice, and Sanagan’s Meat Locker, just to name a few.

Go on Sundays when several streets are blocked off to traffic; in good weather, stores move their wares out front alongside curated cultural events and installations.


AGO toronto9. AGO
A visit to Toronto is not complete without spending a few hours at the Art Gallery of Ontario, known locally as the AGO. Beyond the extensive collection of Canadian art, works in the permanent collection span from the Renaissance to today—plus the Thomson Family’s incredible Ship Model Collection.

The exhibits are consistently top-notch—we enjoyed a Frida Kahlo retrospective when we were there, as well as the wonderfully spare works of local sculptor Michael Snow. There are also extensive children’s programs at the AGO, down on the basement level.

The building is a wonder in and of itself: The 2008 Frank Gehry-led renovation features a Douglas-fir-and-glass wrap around the ffacade, and an 11-story sculptural “Baroque Stair” that connects the museum’s two buildings. Gehry described the narrow, winding staircase as “the kind of place you might meet your future wife.” If that’s the kind of thing you’re looking for…

The way guys treat women like pieces of meat is a shame. Buzzfeed calls out the mating habits of the heterosexual American male in this satire clip, which ponders what it would be like if women turned the tables on men. We had to keep reminding ourselves this would be a bad thing.

James Franco continues to co-opt gay tropes with “James Franco: New Film Stills,” a new photography exhibit that opened Friday at Soho’s Pace Gallery.

Speaking of co-opting, the exhibition is actually a re-creation of Cindy Sherman’s “Untitled Film Stills” from the late 1970s, with Franco adopting the same poses, attire and scenarios as Sherman did.

Related: Get Full-Frontal Gay James Franco Assault At FrancoFest

Says Franco in the exhibition text:

Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills broke new ground in so many ways: they can be read as critique of portrayals of women in film, a critique that goes hand in hand with the work of critic Laura Mulvey; they can be read as performances; as photographs; as examinations of types; they are both humorous and earnest. Cindy is an artist who used cinema as a source for her work; she ‘played’ at being an actress. I am an actor who inserts himself into his work.

Related: James Franco Posts Kinky “50 Shades Of Batman” Photos

Where Cindy used cinema as a starting place, I use art as a starting place. She, like so many of my favorite artists (Douglas Gordon, Richard Prince, Dan Colen, Nate Lowman, Paul McCarthy) uses cinema in her work, but she comes at it from a position outside of Hollywood. I am fully embedded in Hollywood, but these photos allow me to take a step to the side, look back, and refashion the work I do in Hollywood. I am at the same time actor, critic, artist, and character.”

Previously Franco reworked outtakes from My Own Private Idaho to create My Own Private River, and co-directed Interior. Leather. Bar, a re-imaging of “lost” footage from William Freidkin’s Cruising. He and Seth Rogen even duplicated Kanye and Kim’s cycle scene from the “Bound 2″ video.

Well, if you’re gonna steal, steal from the best.

Zac Efron is in a dead heat with CHris Hemsworth for the MTV Movie Award for Best Shirtless Performance. Last month he tweeted that, should he win, he’ll accept the trophy shirtless. Since Twitter is more or less the law of the land, MTV caught up with Efron, and his dildo-combatant Seth Rogen, to put him on the spot:

As a reminder, here’s the scene Zac’s up for:

He’s got some stiff competition from Hemsworth, though. Really, really super stiff:

aids day

A gay boutique in West Hollywood is turning heads with its new window display, a symbolically HIV-positive mannequin wearing a hospital gown and hooked up to an IV and oxygen tank.  “World AIDS Day is every day,” reads a placard in front of the figure. “People are people—end the hate”

Nir Zilberman, the owner of the store, sparked controversy several months ago with another mannequin dressed up like a Holocaust concentration-camp survivor, with a pink triangle to indicate it was gay.

While World AIDS Day is officially December 1, Zilberman is trying to generate awareness year-round: He’s organized a candlelight ceremony Saturday evening in front of his store on  Santa Monica Boulevard.


DENMARK-GAY-PRIDE-PARADE

A lesbian couple at the Copenhagen Pride Parade

Copenhagen is hosting the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in May, and in the days leading up to the ultra-campy musical competition city officials will perform wedding ceremonies for both homosexual and heterosexual couples from around the world.

“We have already scheduled 20-30 couples in our calendar -both Danish and foreigners. On the first of the three days, we start with three Russian gay marriages,” organizer Flemming Otto told Reuters. “We would like to strike a blow for the diversity and openness we have in Denmark. We are looking forward to marry all the happy couples, and I’m convinced we’ll be very busy.”

This year is the 25th anniversary of same-sex civil partnerships in Denmark, which legalized full marriage equality in 2012. At last year’s Eurovision, Finland’s Krista Siegfrieds ended her performance of “Marry Me,”  with a smooch on a female backup dancer. Given that the show airs in some seriously anti-gay countries, it was a significant statement.


the normal heart

The Normal Heart, Larry Kramer‘s seminal AIDS drama, finally comes to HBO next month, courtesy of producer-director Ryan Murphy and an all-star cast that includes Mark Ruffallo, Julia Roberts, Jim Parsons and Matt Bomer.

The Hollywood Reporter‘s May cover is devoted to the film, and the accompanying feature reveals much about the 25-year-struggle to bring the project to life. Barbara Streisand was long-attached to direct and co-star in a Normal Heart film, but she and Kramer could never see eye-to-eye.

As Streisand tells it, she had an offer from HBO to pay Kramer $250,000 for the rights, but he was demanding $1 million “and no company was willing to move on it.”

In a 2012 email to Streisand that became public, Kramer offered his own version of events in typically lacerating style: “You had other movies and tours to make first. I sat back with increasing sadness as I watched you (often at the last minute) choose something else to do. … When your options lapsed, I said you could buy it for a million dollars and do whatever you wanted with it. … You kept telling me I wanted too much money. I kept telling you this is my only asset to sell and live on for the rest of my life.”

Recounting the years he and Streisand put into trying to make a movie version, Kramer accused her of lacking “the burning passion to make it,” a charge she resoundingly rejects. “It was hard for me to be attacked like that by Larry. I worked for so many years on it without ever taking a penny,” Streisand told THR recently. “I will always believe in Larry’s play and its powerful theme of everyone’s right to love.”

hanky code
Justin Sayre, host of the irreverent and unapologetically queer happening known as The Meeting—has resurrected the hanky code, the ancient color-coordinated telegraphy that allowed gay men to subtly announce their kinks in a pre-Grindr world.

Below, Sayre lays out “The New Hanky Code,”

Dating, especially gay dating, can be a potential minefield and if you’re not careful you could end up with a leg blown off, or worse yet, getting blown off by someone you’re not even that interested in. Millionaire Matchmaker‘s David Cruz came up with five lies the gays tell each other — and themselves, if we’re being honest — on first dates. I’m surprised he was able to narrow it down to only five since most guys only have a passing acquaintance with the truth. Not that I’m bitter or anything…[see #5].

Here, according to Cruz, are the five lies gay men tell on first dates:

jodie-foster-single

1. “Relationship Status”

body-body-body

2. “I’m Athletic” or “In Shape”

looking-compromising

3. “Relationship Expectations”

ready

4. “He’s Ready to Date”

bitter

5. “I’m Not Bitter About Love, I’m A Realist!”

Do any of these lies sound familiar to you? Maybe you’ve heard them one too many times…or used them? Sound off in the comments below!

Broadway Bares is perhaps taking a cue from Neil Patrick Harris’s highly anticipated turn in Hedwig and the Angry Inch with the theme for its 24th season, “Rock Hard!”

Benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, “Broadway Bares 24: Rock Hard!” will feature over 150 of New York City’s sexiest and most talented hoofers as they channel rock icons and pay tribute to 60 years of rock and/or roll.

In the following behind the scenes photo shoot, 13 Broadway babes rock out with their cocks and various other things out ahead of the show’s June 22 premiere at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Click here for tickets and more info.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Pharrell Williams is an LGBT ally. On a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, however, the 41-year-old super-producer and falsetto maestro advocated for gender equality then told the audience they’d be “surprised” before he voiced his support for marriage equality.

“When I say equality, I mean equality for everybody,” he said. “Everybody. Who you telling who they can marry and who they can’t? What is this? This is 2014.”

Coming from the coolest dude on the planet — at least top 5 — we would expect nothing less.

She’s been MIA lately, but Robyn is making a comeback in a big way: Tickets have been selling out for her recently announced Do It Again tour, and now the “Cobrastyle” singer has released “Say It,” her new single with Röyksopp, who will join the Swedish pop sensation on the road. (She collaborated with the group previously on 2009′s “The Girl and the Robot.“)

Kicking off June 13 at the Sonar Festival in Spain, the Do It Again Tour offers audiences sets from both Röyksopp and Robyn, as well as a joint performance. “We’ve done shows together here and there and it’s a pleasure to be on tour with Svein [Berge] & Torbjørn [Brundtland],” says Robyn. “I’m working on a lot of music at the moment and whatever is finished might be something I put into the set list. As usual I just hope people want to dance. I see pink lasers.”

Future-maybe president Hillary Clinton may be pushing 70 but she’s got the shoe-dodging reflexes of a politician half her age. The former Secretary of State was just minding her own business, delivering the keynote speech at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting in Las Vegas, when an irate woman threw a shoe at her.

Ducking out of the way, but not missing a beat, Clinton joked, “Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?” The audience had a nice chuckle, so Hills hit ‘em with some more shtick:

“My goodness, I didn’t know that solid waste management was so controversial. Thank goodness she didn’t play softball like I did.” #Rimshot!

Forget President, and forget Colbert — Hillary Clinton for The Late Show, 2015.

A woman vaguely resembling Gina Gershon as Donatella Versace in the Lifetime opus House of Versace, was apprehended by the Secret Service after throwing an orange and black shoe at Clinton. She was found later in the hallway, sitting calmly on a sofa, wearing a blue dress and “thong sandals.”

It’s bad enough she would throw an orange and black shoe at a woman clearly wearing a tasteful blue pantsuit — clashing, much? — but to just hang around in a flip flop after the ordeal? All I’m saying is a stiletto never hurt anybody.

Ever wonder if someone took a Bel Ami model, sucked out his soul and just left him a husk of a hunk? Welcome to Sinthetics, makers of the creepiest, most realistic, disturbingly hot “manikins” you’ll find this side of Charlie Sheen’s house. These manikins are just as hung, and just as dead in the eyes, as a real porn star, but you won’t have the police breathing down your neck if you lock them away in a trunk for a week.

Currently, “Gabriel” is the only available male model, but he’s customizable in a myriad of ways: hair color, eye color, piercings; you even have the option to choose a flaccid uncircumcised penis or  7″ upgraded uncircumcised penis. Prince Albert piercing sold separately…if you want.

Showcasing its commitment to diversity, Sinthetics tweeted a pic of its new, upcoming male model, “William”, who apparently has a penchant for leather:

Hands where I can see ‘em, boys.

So if dating’s got you down, or you’ve just completely given up on life, Sinthetics may have a few good men for you. And here they are in various states of undress:

sex-dolls-7

sex-dolls-4

sex-dolls-3

sex-dolls-2

Quick, someone dig up Kim Cattrall — there’s a Mannequin remake in here somewhere just waiting to get out:

neighbors zac efron

Zac Efron is still probably recovering from getting whomped in the face the other day, but he also has a new movie, Neighbors, opening May 3. In the new red-band trailer (below) we see Efron and his frat bros (including slice-of-nice Dave Franco) battling for supremacy against their suburbanite neighbors, played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne.

There’s plenty of homo-adjacent humor, including Rosen calling Efron “something a gay guy designed in a laboratory,” Efron flexing in front of an Abercrombie & Fitch, and the two getting into a dildo-slapping fight.

Y’know, like neighbors do.

veet

We’re generally for any commercial that sees two men in bed together, but Veet’s ad for its new wax strips has stirred up allegations of homophobia, misogyny and transphobia.

The “Don’t risk dudeness” spot sees a handsome young man wake up in bed and reach over for his girlfriend’s leg—and is horrified to find a hairy, bearded fellow lying next to him. “I know, I’m prickly,” his guest says in a woman’s voice. “I shaved yesterday.”

The ad’s message, in case you didn’t pick up on it, is that failing to keep yourself as hairless as a 12-year-old will lead your man to think you’re Seth Rogen. It ends with the line, “Feel womanly around the clock.”

The ad was posted online Monday, but after claims it shamed women, judged masculinity by body hair and endorsed gay panic, Veet took it down. On Wednesday, the company’s U.S. marketing team issued a statement.

We just wanted to let everyone know, we get it – we’re women too. This idea came from women who told us that at the first hint of stubble, they felt like “dudes.” It was really simple and funny, we thought. To be honest, the 3 of us could really relate to these real-life moments and they made us laugh. Not everyone appreciated our sense of humor.

We know that women define femininity in different ways. Veet helps those who choose to stay smooth. Our intention was never, ever, to offend anyone, so we decided to rethink our campaign and remove those clips. Thank you for letting us know how you feel.

We say keep the commercial, just dub in new dialog so the man is dismayed by his bedmate’s bad breath, not his body hair or gender.

tumblr_m5l03iHkrr1rntp9ro1_500Jeremy Irvine, the comely star of War Horse, has been tapped to star in Independence Day director Roland Emmerich’s upcoming historical drama about the Stonewall Riots.

Deadline reports Stonewall, written by Other Desert Cities playwright Jon Robin Baitz, will follow Irvine’s character’s political awakening in the wake of the protests that helped launch the modern gay-rights movement.

The 23-year-old actor was personally chosen by director Steven Spielberg to star in the period drama War Horse, and has several high profile projects lined up: The Colin Firth-Nicole Kidman POW drama Railway Man opens today, while production has just wrapped on the Hammer Films horror film The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death.

We’ll also see this up-and-comer in the gothic teen fantasy Fallen, the potthriller The World Made Straight and the Stephen King adaptation The Reach with Michael Douglas coming down the pike as well.

After Stonewall, Emmerich’s next project is Independence Day Forever, a followup to the 1996 sci-fiblockbuster.

24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

Carmen Carrera has been named to The Trans 100, an annual list honoring trans-identified people working to create a more inclusive world. Past honorees include Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox and journalist-advocate Janet Mock.
After appearing on RuPaul‘s Drag Race Season 3, Carrera came out as transgender and began advocating on behalf of trans equality. Earlier this year she and Cox appeared on an episode of Katie, and criticized the media’s obsession with gender-confirming surgery and other private details.

More recently, she spoke out against CrossFit, for denying a trans woman the opportunity to compete in the CrossFit Games.

A joint effort between GLAAD, Lambda Legal and Chicago House, the Trans 100 celebrates those “making a difference in the day to day lives of trans people in a tangible way.” For the full list of honorees, head here.


Chick-fil-ANew Yorker have been spared most of the Chick-fil-A controversy since the fast-food outlet has just one location in the Big Apple—on the NYU campus. But now comes word that the chain is poised for an invasion of New York, with plans to open multiple restaurants across the five borough this year.

“If we can’t do it in New York, we have no business going anywhere else,” says vice president of design and innovation Woody Faulk.

Too easy.


lyndon johnsonThe daughters of Lyndon Johnson say the late president would have supported marriage equality if the issue was put forth in his day.

Luci Baines Johnson and Lynda Bird Johnson Robb told told Katie Couric on Yahoo Global News:

“I think my father felt very strongly that when there was bigotry anywhere, prejudice anywhere, all of us lose out,” Johnson said. “Because it’s just one more expression of hate.”

For her part, Robb said she didn’t know what her father would say, because same-sex marriage was not an issue when he was in public life.

“It’s hard to project what Daddy would have thought about that because that wasn’t an issue that had come upon the stage at that time,” Robb said. “But I know he really wanted everybody to be able to live up to the best that God gave them.”

Both Robb and Johnson said they personally believe gay marriage should be allowed.

“I certainly think that, if God made you a homosexual, that you should have love and affection with somebody,” Robb said. “And I would not want to deny anybody that opportunity to be happy.”

“It’s a great civil rights concern of our day,” Johnson added.

It was 50 years ago that President Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act into law, banning discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin in the workplace and public accomodations.


Seabees and Boy Scouts Team Up for Pinewood VictoryTurns out Trail Life USA, an alternative to the Boy Scouts that cropped up when the Scouts began allowing gay troopmembers, doesn’t welcome Jewish people, either. According to the Trail Life USA guidebook its a Trinitarian Christian organization “with a statement of faith that includes those denominations that specifically recognize Jesus Christ as the prophesized Messiah.”

While a Jewish boy could be a Trail Life troop member, “a Jewish parent could be present at troop functions and even on certain camping trips, but not as a recognized or registered leader.”

The guidebook recommends that “for troops that want to transfer intact with non-Christian leadership, Trail Life USA will not be an appropriate option.”

Hustling follows Ryan (La Cause) an escort/porn star on the wrong side of 40  who tries to reinvent himself as a chef.

RuPaul popped up last night on The Face, Oxygen’s model competition series, to help the girls get into character for a shoot that saw them dragged up as men. “Its so important for the girls to have a specific character in mind when they’re doing this challenge,” he advises. “They have to be specific, otherwise the audience won’t feel it.”

While we would have loved to see RuPaul in full drag kiki-ing with host Naomi Campbell, as Joe Zee points out, “If Ru came out fully done [in drag] I think all those women would be eliminated this week. Show done.”

6 Reasons Not To Miss The Broadway Revival Of “Cabaret” With Michelle Williams And Alan Cumming http://www.newnownext.com/cabaret-6-reasons-not-to-miss-the-new-broadway-revival/04/2014/ http://www.newnownext.com/cabaret-6-reasons-not-to-miss-the-new-broadway-revival/04/2014/#comments Thu, 10 Apr 2014 21:12:15 +0000 http://www.newnownext.com/?p=146874 Number 7: You can drink during the show.

The post 6 Reasons Not To Miss The Broadway Revival Of “Cabaret” With Michelle Williams And Alan Cumming appeared first on NewNowNext.

Cabaret

In 1998, director Sam Mendes didn’t have American Beauty and Skyfall under his belt, and choreographer Rob Marshall hadn’t taken Chicago and Into The Woods to the big screen yet. But the duo shepherded the Tony-winning revival of Cabaret onto the Great White Way and into musical theater history.

This year, Roundabout Theatre Company has enlisted Mendes and Marshall to remount the show at Studio 54, bringing back Alan Cumming as the emcee and scoring three-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams to step in for the late Natasha Richardson as Fraulein Sally Bowles.

And unlike the previous Broadway revival, which ran for 2,377 performances, this Cabaret is saying auf Wiedersehen on August 31.

Here are 6 reasons you shouldn’t miss Cabaret’s triumphant return to Broadway.


Cabaret_605x329

1. Alan Cumming’s still got it

As the sexually fluid master of ceremonies, Cumming steals the show in a role that won him a Tony more than 15 years ago. He’s laugh-out-loud hilarious, whether adlibbing scenes or performing campy numbers like “Two Ladies” (in which one of the ladies is played by a man). But he also knows how to reel in his shtick to pack a powerful punch during songs like “If You Could See Her” and the somber standout, “I Don’t Care Much.”

While Joel Grey was phenomenal in the original stage version and film adaptation, Cumming has really come to define the character for a new generation. 


7c8242c7301193c14f6a43c4b7470811

2. Anne Hathaway wasn’t cast as Sally Bowles

When the revival was announced, rumors swirled that Anne Hathaway would be the main attraction at the Kit Kat Club.

Academy Award aside, Hathaway is—to put it gently—not the most musically gifted actress. Her Fantine was overdone and, despite her best efforts, Miss Hathaway’s never been able to shed her Princess Diaries wholesome image. We’re much happier that Williams is the Brokeback Mountain star whose name is on the marquee. (Though we’d love to see Jake Gyllenhaal in the role, just saying.)


Cabaret05_605x329

3. Michelle Williams dazzles in her Broadway debut

Williams has a penchant for playing dark characters (even Jen on Dawson’s Creek died, for Pete’s sake) and her Bowles is one giant exposed nerve.

By bringing the character’s fragility to the forefront, Williams lets us see that Sally is using the cabaret as a coping mechanism for the chaos of Weimar-era Germany. (Hence her blind dismissal of politics even as the Nazis start to gain terrifying momentum).

From her desperate and raw “Maybe This Time” to her stripped down, heartbreaking rendition of the title number, Williams brilliantly emphasizes Sally’s knack for self-destruction. She’s taking a fresh and deeply psychological approach that adds layers of complexity to a character that’s been around for half a century. It’s a tact that stands a good chance at earning her a Tony.

Plus, her English accent won’t make you cringe.


1978632_603866919701099_1870989749_n

4. The ambiance

Studio 54 has resurrected the Kit Kat Klub, offering theatergoers intimate seating, bordello-style furnishings and a full cocktail menu serviced by scantily clad waiters. In fact, they’re so committed to the cabaret vibe that ushers don’t give out Playbills until after the show is over.


Cabaret04_605x329
5. The orchestra really is beautiful

This revival really delivers on sex appeal: Not only are the musicians gorgeous—they blow their horns and gyrate on stage in nothing but leather vests and lacy halter tops. (It’s the girls wearing the halters, if you were confused.)


LIZA-articleLarge

6. It has Liza Minnelli’s stamp of approval 

“I’m excited to see what they will do with the show and am sure it will be great,” Minnelli told E! Online. “Michelle is a wonderful actress and I love Alan Cumming.”  Minnelli, who won the Oscar for her interpretation of Sally Bowles, swore, “I will be there opening night.”

There you have it. The queen has spoken.


Currently in previews, Cabaret at Studio 54 officially opens April 24 and runs through August 31.

Part of being an underwear model is getting naked in front of people…actually, that’s all of being an underwear model. Andrew Christian set out to see just how fast some of their models can strip down to their birthday suits because why not? Some, like Ricky Roman came with their A-game and judging from his wardrobe, little else, while Pablo Hernandez needs to bone up on his strip technique. I, of course, would be more than willing to lend him a helping hand. Meanwhile, they could all take a lesson or two from Tom Daley, who’s an Olympic disrober at this point in his career:

boy bands

With the Jonas Brothers split up and grumblings from One Direction members about “solo projects” we might be witnessing the twilight of the post-millennial boy-band era. But this is hardly the first time we’ve swooned over post-adolescent males with falsetto voices and embarrassing hairstyles.

Below, the Not-To-Be-Missed Players recount the 5 greatest boy bands you forgot all about.


Hanson

tumblr_lvpl7piBZx1r2zl9wo1_500

In 1997, these brothers from Oklahoma had everyone singing “Mmm-bop.” But by 2000 they left Island Def Jam Records to seek more creative freedom.


Color Me Badd

tumblr_mcoqla5BX61rtgem1o1_500

Sure you remember “I Wanna Sex U Up” and “I Adore (Mi Amore),” but do you recall CMB’s groundbreaking appearance on Beverly Hills 90210?


98 Degrees

1_gif

This Ohio quartet scored a Number One with “Gimme Just One Night (Una Noche)”, but we’ll always remember Nick Lachey as one half of the MTV Show Newlyweds.


Take That

tumblr_static_take_that_gif

Though they scored numerous Top Ten hits in their native UK, Take That never really broke in America. But we’ll always have them to thank for giving us the cocktease that is Robbie Williams.


O-Town

tumblr_n3tpoohLpT1qlvwnco4_250

Fun fact: Formed on ABC/MTV’s Making the Band in 2000, O-Town was named after the city of Orlando, Florida—even though none of the members were from there. Because nothing says “I’m a bad boy” like Walt Disney World’s hometown.

God bless Instagram for giving hot guys with few shirts and even fewer fucks a platform to publicize how hot they are. The #selfie rose to ripped and glorious new heights when model/personal trainer/professional douchebag Zac Aynsley posted some shots of himself and his other model/personal trainer/professional douchebag friends being super turnt up (and turned on) by each other.

The Gaily Grind dug up the epic selfie shoot from some two months ago featuring Aynsley and his friends, most of whom have apparently never heard of “Leg Day”:

And for good measure, here’s a video of Zac and co. traipsing through the streets of Manchester on Gay Pride Day, with the wholy appropriate hashtag, “#nohomo”:

Because nothing says raging heterosexual like stripping down and oiling up with your best buds to troll the streets for compliments from the gays on this, their special day. #SOHOMO

Stephen Colbert will become the new host of The Late Show when David Letterman steps down next year, CBS has confirmed.

Colbert, currently skewering pop culture and politics on The Colbert Report, beat out a number of big-name celebs allegedly under consideration, including Neil Patrick Harris, Chelsea Handler and Ellen DeGeneres.

While it’s a major promotion for the comedian, is it a good fit? Colbert Report is known for biting commentary and snark that will likely go over the head of the more mainstream Late Show audience. Just the other week, a tongue-in-cheek joke about Asian stereotypes inspired the #cancelcolbert hashtag.

If CBS lets Colbert do what he does best, it could be a great thing. But if they shoehorn him into another celebrity butt-kissing forum, we’ll all be the poorer for it.

bieber-jonas-brothersThe way they were…

With his boy band days behind him, Joe Jonas has the time and the experience to wax philosophically on how to solve a problem like Justin Bieber.

“I’ve had an easier route than most. The youngsters just turning 20, the Biebers of the world, are under a microscope,” Jonas told Scene magazine. “[Bieber] is having a very tough time finding balance. I think we all saw it coming. Your dad is your party animal—that’s going to sum it up pretty quick. There’s an equation for some sort of explosion.”

Bieber’s exploits have gotten progressively more awesome or troublesome, depending on who you’re talking to. Anyone who’s ever been 20 knows the shenanigans one can get into, but then again most 20-year-olds aren’t über-famous multi-millionaires. And for good reason because then this happens:

That makes two of us since I’m confused about that shadow above his lip masquerading as a mustache.

gay-dads-ukPrince George, the royal fruit of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s loins, must learn to crawl before he can walk among the commoners: During his parents’ tour of New Zealand, His Royal Highchair was introduced to a wide variety of families, including a gay couple and their adopted daughter, on his first official playdate.

Jared Mullen and Ryan Tunstall, of Oregon and Australia, respectively, said that their daughter Isabella and George were “chums” after having “a little play together.”

The couple were among 10 chosen by Plunket, a parent support organization, to represent the growing number of New Zealand’s same-sex couples who use Plunket’s services.

“The parents are a spread of all the communities in New Zealand, including Maoris, Samoans, people of Chinese descent and gay couples,” said Plunket president Tristine Clark. “This is a very multi-cultural country and we wanted the Duke and Duchess to meet people from all backgrounds.”

Mullen called the playdate a “huge privilege” and had nothing but glowing words for the Cambridges.

“In a way all we did was talk about babies. The Duke and Duchess were lovely, they were both very relaxed and we chatted about our experiences as first-time parents,” he told the Independent. “He is a lovely little boy, very intrepid. The whole thing has been a huge privilege. It was lovely to meet the Duke and Duchess and share our beautiful children with them.They are both very lovely and loving parents.”

Much like a six-lane highway during rush hour, you don’t want to cross the gay mafia — that totally real cabal of highly powerful gays that run the media, politics…the world? The gayluminati. The gaystapo. The cast of A Chorus Line. However you refer to them, they’re more or less real…sorta. At least that’s been the narrative surrounding Mozilla’s former CEO Brandon Eich who resigned from the company after campaign contributions he made in support of Proposition 8 came to light.

Conservative kween Andrew Sullivan went on The Colbert Report last night mostly to serve as the punchline for Colbert’s satirical gay-baiting, calling for everyone to just simma down now with the name-calling and strong-arming. Sullivan has drawn considerable queer ire after coming to the defense of Eich, blasting the so-called “ugly intolerance of parts of the gay movement.” It’s unlikely he’ll engender himself to his detractors with this appearance, but the Colbert Bump is known to do wonders.

Naya Rivera And Big Sean Call Off Engagement

Glee star Naya Rivera and rapper Big Sean have called off their engagement. There’ve been rumors that Sean has cheated on Rivera, but he denies that’s the cause of the break in a statement to the press:

“After careful thought and much consideration, Sean has made the difficult decision to call the wedding off. The recent rumors and accusations reported by so called or fake sources are simply untrue. Sean wishes Naya nothing but the best and it is still his hope that they can continue to work through their issues privately. We will not be commenting again on this matter.”

Sounds like it was Sean’s idea to call it quits—his loss!

The two got engaged in October 2013 after six months of dating.


Shirley MacLaine Joins Glee

Glee adds another screen legend to its roster with Shirley MacLaine, who’s joining the gang for an undisclosed number of episode.

TVLine reports the Downton Abbey alum will play a powerful New York socialite bent on turning Blaine into a superstar. She’ll make her debut at the end of this season and, thanks to leaked set photos, we know she’ll have at least have one song and dance number.


Glee Cuts Back On Episodes

Just when Glee starts getting great again, we’re getting less of it: The Powers That Be have decided to cut back the Season 5 run to 20 episodes, down two from the normal run of 22. A big thumbs down, but it’s been a hard year for the show—if anyone deserves a break, it’s the Glee cast.

With the gang turning to Sondheim classics on this week’s episode, theater buff Darren Criss quizzed his Glee co-stars on their Big White Way knowledge: In “Broadway Baby Brain Busters: Glee Edition” he pitted Lea Michele against Chris Colfer with questions like “What was the longest-running musical in 2000?,” “What musical is ‘No One is Alone’ from?” and “What is Patti LuPone’s real name?” (That last one was a trick question.)

Chord Overstreet‘s Sam has grown to become one of the most enjoyable elements of Glee. Now he’s turning toward his own musical career, with a YouTube channel demonstrating his abilities outside the choir room—offering original tunes and acoustic mashups of pop hits. Check out two examples below: a mashup of “Get Lucky” and “Last Friday Night” and an original composition called “Birthday Suit.”

Cher Lloyd says the best advice she ever got was from X-Factor honcho Simon Cowell, who told her to do what she wanted, not what she thought other people wanted from her. That tip has gotten the 20-year-old pop star pretty far: From touring with Demi Lovato to dropping her second album, Sorry I’m Late, next month, she’s certainly making her mark on the world.

“Cringy!”

One way Lloyd’s made her mark is with her style—but as she tells NewNowNext, sometimes her outfits make even her wince. “Cringy!” says Lloyd of the cartoon-strip catsuit she wore at London’s G-A-Y in 2012 (right). “I don’t even know why that was an option to wear!”

The “Swagger Jagger” singer admits that, like a lot of us, she feels most comfortable in sweats: “I focus so much on my music that sometimes I really don’t care what I look like.”

Spoken like a true artist.

Below, check out Cher Lloyd—looking fabulous, by the by—talking about X Factor, how she teamed up with Lovato, and the meaning of the title Sorry I’m Late.

And mark your calendars for May 27, when the album hits stores and the Internet.

Rob Lowe Signs Copies Of His Book "Love Life"

In his new memoir, Love Life, ageless hunk Rob Lowe muses on his first gay kiss—a smooch with Evan Handler on Showtime’s Californication.

He elaborated in an excerpt posted on Salon:

californicationI kissed a man recently, and with romantic intent. I liked and admired him very much, and professionally he is as good as anyone in his field, but truth be told he isn’t conventionally attractive. In fact, he is not tall, lacks any hair whatsoever and is a bit older than anyone I would likely be interested in kissing, regardless of gender.

But I did it anyway, and not without the apprehension you would expect from someone completely new to that sort of thing.

The scene in question was in Californication’s fourth season, when Lowe debuted as Oscar-winning actor Eddie Nero, a thinly veiled Brad Pitt type. Nero is a douchy Hollywood star who’s idea of going Method is performing oral sex on a guy so he can understand what it’s like to play a gay hit man.

Later, for no discernible reason, Nero kisses Handler’s character, schlumpy agent Charlie.

“I believe it’s the most romantic kiss I’ve ever done,” Lowe joked of the smooch. “In the name of comedy, you have to be willing to do anything. You have to be willing to look like an idiot.” The fact that neither he nor Handler’s character were gay makes this kiss “provocative,” says Lowe.

He’ll return to the role of Eddie Nero when Californication returns for its seventh and final season on April 13.

Below, Nero recounts taking a man in his mouth, on Californication.

The MTV Movie Awards are airing live on Logo on Sunday, April 13, and to get you in the mood we’re revisiting our favorite categories: Best Kiss! There’s been a surprising number of same-sex lipsmacks in the show’s 22-year history—including a few at the awards themselves. Take a look!


Selma Blair & Sarah Michelle Gellar, “Cruel Intentions”
The 1999 teen drama saw Gellar as a manipulative diva who turns naive Blair into her puppet—and gets a big wet kiss from in a pivotal scene. The two delivered a more conservative smooch at the awards themselves.



Jason Biggs & Sean William Scott, “American Pie 2″

The American Pie movies were chockfull of homoerotic highjinks, but none so much as American Pie 2, where Stifler and Jim had to make out to please some horny sorority sisters. In his acceptance speech, Sean William Scott thanked all the girls he’d ever made out with—as well as Ashton Kutcher, his kissing partner in Dude, Where’s My Car?

brokeback mountain kiss scene

Jake Gyllenhaal & Heath Ledger, “Brokeback Mountain”
The embrace between Ennis and Jack in Brokeback was More serious than other Best Kiss winners, but that doesn’t mean the stars didn’t have the award in mind when they shot the scene.  “I said to Heath after we finished the scene, ‘if we don’t win the MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss, then it wasn’t worth it.” It was worth it, Jake.


Owen Wilson, Carmen Electra & Amy Smart, “Starsky & Hutch”
It was all about the “triple kiss” in 2004, when Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson turned the bromantic cop show into a feature film. Carmen Electra accepted the award on behalf of her S&H costars, and gave a sweet peck to presenters Paris Hilton and Snoop Dog. We would have loved to see Owen Wilson accept the honor that way.


Robert Pattinson & Taylor Lautner, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”
Pattinson was actually accepting his third Best Kiss award for the Twilight franchise, so he mixed things up by planting a big wet one on co-star Taylor Lautner. “There’s someone else in the audience that will appreciate it a little more,” Pattinson noted before rushing the audience and smooching Lautner.  We’re sure he just hated that.


Will Ferrell & Sacha Baron Cohen, “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby”
Probably the longest kiss in MTV Movie Awards history—if not television history period. During their acceptance speech, Cohen read Ferrell for never calling him back after they kissed five times on set. “They’re called takes,” Ferrell barked back. Cohen slaps him, before the two engaged in a full-on, hands-groping, rolling on the floor makeup session.

Derrick Gordon, a star college basketball player for UMass, has come out as gay—making him what’s believed to be the first openly gay player in the NCAA’ s Division 1.

Outsports interviewed Gordon, who only came out to his coach and teammates last week:

As he shared with them his story of isolation, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. While it had been easy for some of the young men to tease someone they thought was gay – and someone who denied it – the impact of their actions hit home when Gordon revealed the speculation was true, and that the teasing nearly drove him from the team.

Trying to keep his sexuality secret consumed Gordon, especially when a fan would recognize him at a gay bar, or a suggestive photo would pop up on Instagram. ”I know what it’s like to cry yourself to sleep. To have a girlfriend… just to impress your friends,” says Gordon. “I know what that’s like. Nobody should have to live like that—that’s a fake way of living and I’m not a fake person.”

Watch the full interview below.
