“You Oughta Know” is about Dave Coulier, Jack Klugman’s sons think their father is more important than Cory Monteith, Matthew Dave Lewis drenched and giggling
Maggie Gallagher thinks the Pope and his new ideas are exhilarating, and perhaps gay rights activists should practice what he preaches. “What I find most exhilarating about Pope Francis, is the possibility that we can reach out to those with whom we disagree without surrendering principle. I will say I have not found that true generally. I have found the gay rights community — the activists anyway, not the ordinary folk — is mostly asking for one thing: Agree, or be judged a hateful bigot. But when you are in the fray of battle, it is easy to become fragile and to lose sight of possibilities. Maybe the pope can do things I cannot imagine. Imagine that!” But not her. No.
Jack Klugman’s sons are not happy that Cory Monteith is getting a special Emmy tribute and their father is not. “It’s an insult and it really seems typical of this youth-centric culture that has an extremely short attention span and panders to only a very narrow demographic [of young adults]. I don’t mean to say anything disparaging about Cory [Monteith], but he was a kid who had won no Emmys and it was a self-induced tragedy.” Honestly, that’s just awful. The Emmys are also giving special tributes to many of the older generation – Jean Stapleton, James Gandolfini, Jonathan Winters and Gary David Goldberg. To say that the Emmys can’t service the needs of youth is just sad.
Dave Coulier has finally confirmed that “You Oughta Know” from Alanis Morrisette is about him.
Lee Daniels says that his father beat him for being gay. “I ran from that for such a long time – my identity – because I was beaten for it, and then my dad died and I was sort of happy that he did because I dunno that I would have been alive, he’d just kept beating me for being gay. So my mom didn’t want me around cause then… in the African American community we don’t embrace that [being gay]. You know, we simply don’t because men have to be strong and being gay is not a good thing. And so my mom took me to an all-white school… at that point I went from being ‘gay, gay, gay’ to ‘n—er, n—er, n—er.’ …It’s a very, very, very painful experience to live and I try to show that in all of my work, you know, the personal atrocities that I’ve lived.”

Olivia Wilde stars in Rush with Chris Hemsworth, but despite all his sexy scenes, she didn’t get naked with her onscreen husband. “Well, you know, it’s funny because I think I’m the only female in the movie that doesn’t see Chris naked. He has lots of exciting sex scenes, but ironically, with his wife, you never see one. So I never had one of those saucy sexy scenes with him. But watching the finished film, I was able to appreciate it.”

George Takei wants us to keep the pressure on Russia over the Sochi Olympics, and is selling a t-shirt with the Olympic rings turned into handcuffs that says “Say No To Sochi.” All profits from the shirt will go to GLAAD, which has seemed oddly silent on the subject of Sochi, now that I think about it.
The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie-Sells doesn’t understand stars that come out, but then won’t talk about it. “Oh god if anyone comes out I’m like ‘good for you!’ I get a little frustrated with the people that half come out, the people who are like ‘I don’t want to talk about it, I wanna keep it real. Everyone knows you’re gay; you just look ashamed, just shut up and say it! It really pisses me off, not because I feel like everyone has to bare their soul all the time, people don’t have to know all the private details of their lives, but it’s nothing to be fucking ashamed of, so why act ashamed?! It drives me crazy.”
