Morning Meme: Taylor Kinney Joins “A Mann’s World,” Russell Tovey – Hero, and “Isn’t That Special!”

Just when you’re ready to write off Shia LaBeouf for a drunken bar fight, you find out he hit the guy because the guy called him a “f**king fagot Shia LaBeouf[sic].” And
just who is accusing the guy of uttering the slur? Why it’s the man himself,
bragging about provoking the Evens Stevens star.

Sophie B. Hawkin’s
decision to perform at conservative gay group GOProud’s reception at CPAC is angering some.I’m sure she’s just happy someone is
talking about her again.

Matthew Mitcham
is now in the Urban Dictionary, “The only openly gay male to
participate at the Beijing Olympics, he won gold at the Men’s 10m Platform
diving. He ruined China’s hopes of going 8 for 8. He fills a Speedo quite
beautifully, and is possibly the sexiest man on earth. He’s Australian, by the
way.”

The Daily Beast has a gallery of TV parents, and much like Jesse Tyler Ferguson, I’m amused that
right after Clair and Cliff Huxtable we have Mitchell and Cameron from Modern Family.

I just. I just…I don’t know what to say about this. Ilene Chaiken, known best for creating The L
Word
and The Real L Word has headed to CBS to executive produce Hail Mary, a drama about
a surburban single mom who teams up with a street hustler to solve crimes. Is
it too much to hope the street hustler is actually a gay male hustler?

A gay couple in North Carolina, harassed for a year, had their home burned to the ground. Fortunately, they
weren’t home at the time, and Christina Aguilerasimply lost everything they owned, and not their
lives.

Yes, Christina
Aguilera
flubbed the lyrics to the national anthem. Sure, it’s going
to haunt her career forever. But at least she sang it live. Does anyone
remember when Roseanne sang the
national anthem?

Rep. Dennis Kucinich
has formerly inquired about the treatment of possibly-gay Bradley Manning, being held without
charges in the Wikileaks investigation.

After Disney formally boycotted the Annie Awards because of voting issues, Dreamworks pretty much swept the whole thing with How To Train Your Dragon.

Taylor Kinney,
most recently a sexy werewolf on Vampire Diaries has been booked into Michael
Patrick King
’s hairdresser pilot series A Mann’s World. He’ll
play a smoking hot guy pursued by women. So that’s two Taylor Kinneystraight male
hairdressers on one show in Beverly Hills? Stereotypes shattered.

I just love that Jane
Lynch
is telling People “My wife looks fantastic in a
bikini!”

Oh – and Jane’s dream role? Something on Absolutely
Fabulous
, if they do make some more of the show. Can somebody please
make that happen?

Has anyone else tried The Daily, the iPad-only daily news magazine? I don’t get it. I can’t
share the content, the news is a day or more old, and the iTunes-style
interface isn’t really conducive to news. Am I missing something?

American Idol is set to release a 10th Anniversary album with
mostly their winners getting a song each. But since the two gays listed on the
album, Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken came in second, not to
mention Daughtry, who came in
fourth, which first place contestants don’t rate at all? And isn’t the fact I
can’t remember who is missing indicative of how over they are?

The HRC has released their 2011 Buyers Guide,
telling you where you should shop, eat, and generally spend your pink dollars.
I’m happy my Princeday job rates 100% (and am assuming my night job here does), but
remember, they gave Target 100% last year too.

Prince canceled a pricey concert in Dallas to benefit the
Goss-Michael Foundation, set up by George
Michael
and his longtime partner Kenny
Goss
to benefit the arts. The organizing company evidently had some serious
issues with financing the concert, and Prince never left home.

In case House members wanting to create an “Internet Kill
Switch” had you worried hackers
could open the flood gates
on the Hoover Dam, not to worry, security for
internet intrusions at Hoover Dam is air tight. It’s not connected to the
Internet at all.

Author Charlie Stross
wrote what I found to be an amusing account of what he goes through trying to identify automated bot spam on his website. He, like us, is
mostly making it up as he goes.

I have to say, I’m completely disgusted with io9.com for giving homophobe Orson
Scott Card
podcast time. I know there are GLBT on staff there, and that’s
just sad.

Jesse McCartney is set to star in the new Locke & Key drama on
Fox. I never thought I’d say it, but Jesse has grown up to be quite a hunk.

Finally, a good use for silk underwear.
