Johnny Depp’s model daughter Lily Rose has joined the Self Evident campaign aimed at promoting acceptance of LGBT people. According to photographer iO Tillet Wright, “I’m so proud of my baby girl @lilyrose_depp. She decided she wanted to be in @selfevidentproject because she falls somewhere on the vast spectrum, and I couldn’t be happier to welcome her to the family. She’s a tiny gem of a good human. #prouduncle #weareyou.”

Rick Perry’s Iowa chairman Sam Clovis has stepped down from the campaign, because it couldn’t afford to pay him anymore. “I feel bad for the campaign and I feel bad for Governor Perry because I think he’s a marvelous human being, he’s a great man and it was my honor to be a part of this, but it was just time to move on.” How much longer until the clown car starts emptying?


Jared Fogle

The Jared Foundation, founded by disgraced Subway spokesman Jared Fogle, appears to have been a giant fraud. Launched with a mission to donate $2 million to Indiana schools to fight childhood obesity, the foundation appears to have given out nothing in grants, and at least 60% of the money it spent went to his partner Russell Taylor, who is currently in prison on child pornography charges.


I’ve lived in D.C., and even more than the President, the real royalty in that town are the giant pandas at the National Zoo. It was just this week that the zoo announced they thought that Mei Xiang might be pregnant, and now she’s given birth to two healthy cubs about the size of a pack of Starburst.

Niall Horan says that reports of One Direction splitting up to pursue other projects have been overblown. They’re just taking a break. “Ok so Lots of rumours going round. We are not splitting up, but we will be taking a well earned break at some point next year. Don’t worry though, we still have lots we want to achieve ! Can’t wait for you to hear all the new music we have for you and to perform.”


Slate actually wrote something that’s not clickbait for once, taking down the religious freedom talking points in Senator Ted Cruz new campaign video, point by point. You may need these for end of the summer BBQs with your uncle.


There does appear to be a sane person in the Duggar family. Or at least in Anna Duggar’s family. Her brother Daniel Keller took to Facebook to say he wanted her to leave Josh in the wake of the molestation and cheating scandal and that he would pay for her to leave and live with him. “I told her I would go get her and her children stay w me. She said she’s staying where she’s at. But I won’t stop trying to get that pig out of our family.” He also ripped apart the idea that Josh was forgiven for his sins.


John Cena

John Cena may be baring his ass for Amy Schumer and taking down punks in the ring, but he’s a good guy at heart, and has done something nobody else has ever done. He’s granted 500 wishes from the Make-A-Wish Foundation.


Next time a guy tells you he can’t wear a condom because he loses his erection, tell him to see a doctor, because a new study says that men who lose their erections from putting on a condom likely have erectile dysfunction, or a mental block related to condoms, not an aversion to safe sex.


Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill was asked if Superman should be with Lois Lane or Wonder Woman, and he’s catching some fire for the part of the relationship he seemed to focus on in his answer. ”This is a very long discussion because there are a lot of questions to be asked and answered. I mean who is better for a super-powered alien, a human or a goddess? Yes, the goddess can do all the normal things, which we would think are normal in a relationship, and not have any fear of Superman. But you also need to have that baseline of humanity, which Lois provides. And literally keeps his feet on the ground, keeps him down to earth. So that’s more of a debate than an answer.” So the major benefit of Wonder Woman is that his super powered sperm won’t shoot out of the top of her skull when he jizzes? Not that she’s a powerful, independent woman who’s his equal in life and the battlefield?


Twitter has banned two accounts that specialized in keeping track of tweets that politicians deleted. This has obvious value when dealing with people who talk out of two, and sometimes three sides of their mouths. But Twitter says that deleting speech is a form of expression. “Imagine how nerve-racking – terrifying, even – tweeting would be if it was immutable and irrevocable? No one user is more deserving of that ability than another. Indeed, deleting a tweet is an expression of the user’s voice.”


Sure you’re familiar with bears and otters, but what about a more complete gay ecosystem? Do you know what an elephant is, or a penguin, or a Rainbow Lorikeet? Take the Hawk. “Hawks are the corporate beasts of the gay world, and robust members of various boards. Whatever you think of politics, they’ll listen to your musings attentively, before very gently and diplomatically pointing out how fucking naïve you are. Economically liberal and fiscally tight, Hawks do not see any distinctions between mind and body, and work out both with alarming frequency. They will often have several dual degrees, a PhD and will be enrolled in a post-doc, but under that suit is pure protein and pectorals. Hawks are easy to spot. All you need to do is turn on a cable news station or open the op-ed pages and look! There they are.”


Zachary Quinto

Zachary Quinto says it’s great seeing more out actors like Matt Bomer and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, but he thinks that with his film career, he may be out in a space all on his own. “So, I do not disagree with you; I do feel like I occupy – not in any self-aggrandizing way – a space where I have looked to my peers and looked around me and said, ’Well, who else can I look to?’ And there isn’t anybody else. That to me is significant and personally gratifying as I consider my own journey to self-acceptance, but again, I just think, ’Don’t let it slow me down.’ And I don’t. I don’t create an issue where there isn’t one, and I think the more that we’re all able to do that then the more diversity will present itself.” I remember calling him the first gay action star last year to a lot of mockery. But he is, in a way all on his own out there, leading franchises.


It doesn’t matter how hot you are, you’ve probably been rejected. And it sucks. The beauty of it for me is that there’s always another hot guy I can chase. For others, it’s that hope springs eternal that he might change his mind. Or something. I’m not really sure what this video shows.


Nicholas Hoult has been a favorite around here since Skins, and he’s moved on to memorable films, from X-Men to A Single Man. In Kill Your Friends, he’s taking a decidedly darker turn that reminds everyone of American Psycho, except of course he’s English. And besides, the music industry would cause anyone to become homicidal.


In numerous interviews I’ve had with celebrities, I’ve asked them what kind of superpower they’d like, and some have picked teleportation. It’s a favorite among superhero movies, and it does seem pretty awesome – I could take in a circuit party in Ibiza and still be at work tomorrow. But the problem is that we don’t really think about teleportation and the energy involved, or the fact that the earth is moving through space, and that it spins at a different speed near the poles than it does at the equator. Not only is this incredibly nerdy, but it can be funny too. And it also means that supervillains that can teleport haven’t been thinking their plans through. This video aims to help them.


Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
