Matt Smith has confirmed that he will be starring in Doctor Who for the eighth season, to air in 2014. With the big 50th anniversary special, many had speculated we’d be in for another regeneration.
Republican Arizona Senator Jeff Flake doesn’t support marriage equality, but as far as a GOP presidential candidate supporting it, “I think that’s inevitable. There will be one, and I think he’ll receive Republican support, or she will. So, I think that, yes, the answer is ‘yes.’”
Anthony Ciccone, Madonna’s gay brother, isn’t feeling the love from his family these days. “Madonna doesn’t give a sh– if I’m dead or alive. She lives in her own world.” Ciccone is homeless, but his father often drives around town to bring him food. “He doesn’t want to be bothered. … He thinks the way I live is intentional. … My father would be very happy if I died of hypothermia and then he would not have to worry about it anymore.” To be fair, Madonna has paid for Ciconne’s rehab multiple times, but as is often the case, it doesn’t stick.
Justin Bieber is reportedly going to be prosecuted for allegedly spitting on a neighbor during an argument about the parties taking place at the singer’s home. No word on who will care for his monkey if he goes to jail.
When showrunners talk at WonderCon, one thing shows have in common is a problem slipping stuff past the networks. The Vampire Diaries’ Julie Plec says her biggest issue is “side butt” with an actor nude from the waist to the thigh. Teen Wolf’s Jeff Davis says “We’ve also had problems with side butt!”
New York’s Cardinal Dolan wants us to believe that his defense of marriage isn’t an attack on gay people. But as for what our relationships deserve, “Well, the first thing I’d say to them is, ‘I love you, too. And God loves you. And you are made in God’s image and likeness. And – and we – we want your happiness. But – and you’re entitled to friendship.’”
In the late 1980s, Freddie Mercury disguised Princess Diana as a man and took her to notorious gay bar Royal Vauxhall Tavern. They were sure they were going to be discovered, but Mercury proved a major distraction, and Diana reportedly loved it.
The anti-gay Baldwin, Stephen, has pled guilty to tax evasion after he didn’t file or pay New York state taxes for four years. If he repays the $400,000, the charge will be erased from his record.
Soccer player Robbie Rogers says that there was no way he felt he could return to playing after he came out. “I was just fearful. I was very fearful how my teammates were going to react. Was it going to change them? Even though I’d still be the same person would it change the way they acted towards me – when we were in the dressing room or the bus?”
As so many brands saw their logos changed to red equality symbols last week during the SCOTUS hearings, only four asked for their brands to be removed from the rolls – Exxon, WalMart, Urban Outfitters, and Chick-Fil-A. Urban Outfitters is particularly galling since they make tons of money off Keith Haring and “Legalize Gay” shirts, then their CEO gives it to anti-equality causes.
Neil Patrick Harris is one of the celebrities chosen to get an early edition of Google Glass. His idea for what he’d do if he had Glass was to show you what it’s like on the set of How I Met Your Mother, but to me that’s probably the least interesting part of Neil’s life.
The Family Research Council put out some talking points about homosexuality, including that being born gay is a myth the liberal media has propagated using Joseph Goebel’s philosophy of propaganda, which is “tell a lie often enough and loud enough and eventually most mindless Americans will believe it to be the truth.”

True Blood has put out their first teaser for the new season, and it looks like they’re picking up exactly where they left off, with a possessed Bill rampaging through the headquarters of The Authority. There’s blood and fear everywhere. How do you stake the original vampire’s spirit?
Rep. Matt Salmon, like Senator Portman, has a gay son. But that doesn’t mean that he supports marriage equality. He calls his son one of the most important people in his life, but doesn’t seem to find him important enough for equal rights and an equal shot at happiness.
While Judge Dredd wasn’t terribly successful this past year, a fan film called Judge Minty attempts to bring us inside MegaCity for a fresh look on the judges and the worlds they try and bring justice to.
The Pope of Foam researches beer for the University of California. He knows everything about beer – how to make it, why we drink it, and how to pour it. This was not offered as an elective class when I was in college. It was more of an extracurricular activity.
I’ve been saying that Joan Rivers has gone off the rails for years now. She stirred up a lot of negative publicity a few months ago by calling Adele fat, and when asked about the situation, she decides to double down on the fat jokes. If I had a daughter, I’d certainly prefer she idolized Adele than Joan.
If there’s a question I never really gave much thought, it’s “What Would Happen If the Sun Disappeared?” I guess in my mind, we’d be so screwed, who cares? But some people do think about these things, and while the answer is long, it’s not so cut and dried for the planet as my mind made it out to be.
In this unlikely to be made film, the idea that radical homosexuals want to criminalize Christianity gets some air by cherry picking individual situations and trying to draw the conclusion that we’re out to storm and burn the churches.
Scope is probably just pulling our April Fool’s Day leg, but they did put some money into this product launch for Scope Bacon. This is your warning that today is the day you shouldn’t believe anything you see online.
