  • Ridonkulously adorable Australian gay couple Anthony Callea and Tim Campbell will reportedly perform a song together on the live Carols by Candlelight Christmas Eve telecast, making them the first gay couple to ever do so.
  • Earlier this year actor Scott Caan made headlines for calling a paparazzo a "faggot" (for which he swiftly apologized). Soooo … I wonder what word he’d have for whoever it was that took these pics of him changing on the beach (or us for looking at them)? (NSFW)

  • On the red carpet for the Video Game Awards, Neil Patrick Harris dished on the Doctor Horrible DVD and it’s all-singing commentary track, which is of course titled: Commentary!
