As more and more celebrities and politicians comment on President Obama’s support for marriage equality, it just becomes a blur. But on The Graham Norton Show, Chris Rock really stood out talking about the noise itself. “It just shows you how screwed up the world is though, that a man just goes “HEY, I think gay people should be treated like everyone else.” CONTROVERSY! What kind of world is this, it’s so horrible.”
Why is it so hard to come up with an HIV vaccine? This is a tough, adaptive little bug we’re dealing with.
The group Here We Go Magic were driving between gigs and saw a hitchhiker on the side of the road, and realized that it was John Waters. So they looped back and picked him up, finding that he’s on his way across country. They’re dropping him in Indianapolis if anybody wants the next leg.
David Mixner is getting back in the saddle after some surgery, and what better way to start than five questions for Richard Fleeshman, the incredibly sexy hunk starring in Ghost the Musical? I still don’t know how Fleeshman’s pants are staying up in that photograph.
Normally Paul Rudd plays the aimless younger brother in movies, but in They Came Together, Max Greenfield is couch surfing as the younger sibling. This could be an awful movie that’s just watchable because of the eye candy.
In Israel, normally a beacon for gay rights in the Middle East, the Knesset has rejected marriage equality.
James Badge Dale has joined Iron Man 3 as villain Eric Savin, who becomes the cyborg Coldblood.
Remember that sexy poster for Dallas that had the entire cast in towels in the shower? It turns out that they all did strip down to towels for the shoot, though each was shot separately. Josh Henderson had no problem with it, as his career has basically been the shirtless guy. “I remember a lot of, ’Yeah, you’re going to do this scene with Julie and you’ll be studying, so … go ahead and take your shirt off.’ Or, ’Someone is going to knock on the door, and you’ll answer it, so … let’s just do boxers. Now I hear ’wardrobe,’ and it’s like, no need.'”
Showtime is saluting Gay Pride Month with three documentaries on June 7th, Orchids: My Intersex Adventure, No Look Pass, and Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston.
Sadly, after the next book, Charlaine Harris is done writing for the group in Bon Temps. The thirteenth book, Dead Ever After, will be the last of the adventures.
Despite the ridiculous success of The Avengers, Joss Whedon isn’t sure he wants to direct the sequel, doing someone else’s work instead of his own. He loves all of his productions, but his favorite is still Serenity. “You know, I love all my raggedy children,” he said. “But if I could be anywhere, I’d be on board Serenity.”
Speaking of The Avengers, most of the cast made $2-$3 million for their roles. But Robert Downey, Jr. renegotiated his deal after the first Iron Man movie, and stands to reap huge rewards, to the tune of $50 million or more. I guess he really is (on his way) to being a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist.
Is the church standing to win the culture war, but lose an entire generation in the process?
Everyone lies on dating sites like eCupid and Grindr, but Brian Moylan is here to explain the most common lies and what they mean.
NeNe Leakes explains a lot about her character as an assistant on The New Normal. “She’s very different from Roz Washington on Glee; she’s always in workout outfits and sneakers. Rocky wears high heels every day. This is very fitting for me because in my real life, you don’t mess with my gays, honey. I don’t play that.”
All of the NBC channels will be carrying the Olympics this summer. And the gayest of all the NBC channels, Bravo, will be hosting tennis. I hope snicks gets Bravo HD. I’ll be watching whoever has diving and gymnastics.
Alec Mapa says that 100% of the proceeds from his shows on June 1 & 2 at the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center will go to benefit programs for homeless youth. I’ve seen his shows, he’s filthy and funny, and if you’re in L.A., you should go see him for a good cause and to laugh until it hurts. I still have images in my mind that I can’t get rid of. There also seems to be a trend of hot guys losing their pants around him, which is an added bonus.
Entertainment Weekly has the cast of Magic Mike on their cover this week. Actually, Channing Tatum is alone on the cover, and you open it up to reveal Matthew McConaughey, Joe Maganiello, Matt Bomer, and Channing. I can’t help but notice that Alex Pettyer is missing, and isn’t he the costar as the young upstart? They have a video with Tatum and McConaughey talking about going to a male review, and how the extras ripped off McConaughey’s thong, and not the rest of the cast’s.
I’m not complaining about seeing a dirty Bomer though
Dylan O’Brien isn’t supposed to be the star of Teen Wolf, but he certainly can grab your attention away from Tyler Posey. Let’s hope we see much, much more of Stiles this season.
When Colton Haynes visited America’s Best Dance Crew with Tyler, they were both beautiful, but what happened to Tyler’s face? Did SFX forget to take off his battle wound makeup for the show, or is he in Fight Club?
Why is Colton dressed for Winter and Tyler for summer?
Look at the buns on Harry Shum, Jr.!
I’m questioning Will Young’s fashion sense
Alan Ritchson looks like he could break me in half while lounging
Olympic speed skater Blake Skjellerup invites speculation into the Rorschach test of his sweat
Alec Baldwin and Chris Pine hang out where the fancy people do, in Cannes
Gloria Estefan has seemed to take forever to get on Glee, but next week, she does some bonding with Naya Rivera and Heather Morris, and she’s much more accepting as a mom than Santana’s grandmother was. I’m honestly hoping grandma is back, because I’d like to see that confrontation.
Honestly, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie bothers me for a lot of reasons, so I’m not sure how much I like seeing him burnish his profile with the most likeable mayor in America, Cory Booker. But I give them points for the humor.
As you know by now, I’m in love with Newsies. This video of them recording “The World Will Know” synched with the performance is pretty awesome, even if it’s light on some of my favorites.
While you watch 10 Things Adam Lambert Is Obsessed With, I’ll just be over here, buying kale futures as I’m expecting Glamberts to suddenly develop a taste for the leafy green.
Here, we have an adorable guy in glasses explain the true history of religion and marriage, with stuffed animals. Well, not really animals, but they’re cute nonetheless.
Bait is an odd one. A tsunami hits a town, washing away so much, but for these insanely attractive grocery shoppers, it washes something in that they could do without.
Hit and Run stars Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell and a nearly unrecognizable Bradley Cooper. As a matter of policy, I’d like to note that we don’t condone prison rape as humor around here.
In honor of International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO), European Union politicians say “It Gets Better” in 17 different languages.
Freedom To Marry released this new video about the consequences of DOMA to military families, done in the style of one of those fun Google+ advertisements. It’s heartbreaking if you make it to the end.
Bill Maher sat down with Conan to talk about President Obama and gay marriage, and he seems as confused as anyone as to what the cover and the article means, even though Andrew Sullivan is a dear friend.
My Twitter exploded when 80-year-old grandmother Granny G took the stage on America’s Got Talent. I don’t know what I expected, but it certainly wasn’t this rap about sex.
