Spotify helps you find the words, in bed late with Parker Young, Russia considers outlawing swearing
Coldplay’s Christ Martin is a big fan of One Direction, especially Harry Styles. ”I think One Direction are the biggest band in the world, their songs are great. I’m saying One Direction are brilliant and I’m not kidding. You know why? Because their songs are really good and I don’t think that any of them are going to go solo. I think they appreciate their chemistry from watching their movie… Harry has come to a couple of our shows, I think I probably said the same thing about chemistry. I can’t remember – I was too enamoured with his hair cut. I was like this, ‘I was pretty sure I was a straight guy before’ – I was having a hot flush.”
In sad news, after failing to find a buyer, the nation’s oldest gay book store, Giovanni’s Room in Philadelphia has announced it will be closing next month. I was fortunate enough to get to drop by last year, and I’m glad I did as another piece of history falls away.
Craig Ferguson has announced that he’s leaving The Late Late Show in December. “CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are ‘consciously uncoupling,’ but we will still spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much.” I always loved Craig’s warped humor, but never was able to stay awake long enough to watch.
Despite having only second and third hand knowledge, Brett Easton Ellis has chimed in on the “underage” parties by Bryan Singer in a discussion with Alan Ball.
E! has signed EJ Johnson to an overall deal, and will be expanding his role on the next season of #Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.
Brits are always saying that snogging your best mate is something most male youth in that country do, and a new (admittedly small) study says that 93% of straight British men have spooned with another guy and 98% have shared a bed with another guy.
JP Morgan Chase has begun shutting down personal accounts for porn stars. American Banking Association CEO Frank Keating said the DOJ was “asking banks to identify customers who may be breaking the law or simply doing something government officials don’t like”.
The L.A. Clippers are shedding sponsors quickly in the wake of the Donald Sterling tape. The Chumash Casino, CarMax, Virgin America, State Farm, Kia Motors America, Red Bull, Lumber Liquidators and Sprint have all halted their sponsorship deals.
But Donald Trump has his back. “He got set up by a very, very bad girlfriend, let’s face it. Let’s face it, that whole thing is — she’s called the girlfriend from hell.” Trump naturally made his comments on Fox News.
Ellen DeGeneres is joining the boycotts of the Dorchester Collection, owned by the Sultan of Brunei, who is preparing to introduce death by stoning for homosexuality in his country. Ellen says “I won’t be visiting the Hotel Bel-Air or the Beverly Hills Hotel until this is resolved.”
Dolly Parton has always enjoyed the gay community, the drag queens who dress up like her, and generally being good to everyone. And that includes marriage equality. “I think everyone should be with who they love. I don’t want to be controversial or stir up a bunch of trouble but people are going to love who they are going to love. I think gay couples should be allowed to marry. They should suffer just like us heterosexuals.”
The Russian government is considering banning swearing. No shit.
The United Church of Christ is suing North Carolina for infringing their religious freedom by not allowing them to officiate same-sex wedding. The North Carolina ban says “any member of the clergy who officiates at a same-sex marriage in the state may be sentenced to ’120 days in jail and/or probation and community service.’” So according to the UCC, even officiating a religious same-sex marriage, without civil standing would put them in violation of the law, effectively “tell them how to pray.” Novel approach.
Barney Frank is upset that Compared to What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank includes the scandal where he was investigated for hiring a male prostitute as his driver. Frank’s husband Jim Ready says “I don’t understand why the moviemakers would want to embarrass someone who went out of the way to let them make a movie about him. That kind of bothered me. I really think that was irrelevant to put that in there. It’s embarrassing … it’s just kind of rude.”
Utah’s new strategy to fight to keep their ban on marriage equality is to petition the court to kick the case from federal to the State Supreme Court, which is no doubt a friendlier venue. Their strategy is the adoption cases the state is asking to be halted for couples married before a stay was issued, saying if the state supreme court rules one way and the federal court rules another, it will create chaos.
Half of men in a study are shown to last less than two minutes in bed. It takes longer than that to reach a decision on Grindr.
Zack Snyder is locked in to direct Justice League after Batman vs. Superman, which is what B vs. S is starting to sound like with Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and whoever else they add to the movie.
I always loved Rory on Doctor Who. He was the everyman. But evidently Arthur Darvill is tired of being known as Rory, as you can tell with his gutsy rendition of a very customized version of “Let It Go.”
This cute ad for Spotify shows two guys who just can’t find the words to express themselves to one another, and how music can be a universal language.
Parker Young’s manager doesn’t seem to grasp that actors don’t keep normal schedules, and can absolutely be lying in bed in their underwear at 1:00PM
Keahu Kahuanui is hot, full stop. But the fact that he totally embraces the geek makes him even hotter. Be it hanging out at NASA or hitting up a RenFaire to thrown some axes, he’s completely happy being the geek of your dreams.
