IN OTHER NEWS


Catching up with Will on Nashville, after last week’s pivotal “I refuse to be broken” episode, he’s offered the chance to sign with a small indie label specializing in gay artists with the perfect name of “Three Dollar Vinyl.”

Will is intrigued, as he would be the first country artist to be signed with the label, and he would play only gay-friendly venues, so his safety would be protected.

But when he presses the owner he realizes that they only want him for his hotness and the novelty he brings as a “gay country singer.” Will tells him “I’m not a gay country singer, I’m a country singer who happens to be gay.”

It’s not all bad news, though. Will runs into a barista who’s selling her own music independently, without a label, and Will is intrigued. A-Ha! So is Will going to try to re-launch his career all on his own? Is anyone else thinking what I’m thinking? A Steve Grand/Will Lexington collaboration!


Wentworth gives thanks for the support he’s received this week about his body-shaming message.


Michael Stipe performs “The Man Who Sold The World,” previewing the David Bowie tribute concert tomorrow night at Radio City.

Lambda Legal has reviewed all of Judge Merrick Garland’s records, and has found his LGBT record – inconclusive.

“Our team found that Judge Garland does not have enough of a record in these cases to be able to confirm whether he possesses any anti-LGBT bias, or how he would approach critically important issues such as these were he confirmed for a seat on the Supreme Court.”

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

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

At #27 is “Wired For Sound”

Remember in junior high how cringe-inducing it was when the adult chaperones would try to dance with the kids? I give you Sir Cliff Richard in “Wired For Sound.” With the rollerskating and the lycra dancers, it looks like a deleted scene from Xanadu. Which come to think of it, it could have been.
