Sadly, Bee Gee Robin Gibb has been confirmed to be in a coma in London. It’s sad, but also strange, with Glee going disco this week. They had that oddly timed Whitney Houston song as well. Does anyone have the whereabouts of Ryan Murphy?
Ithacapella, Premium Blend, and IC Voice Stream got together to do a a capella cover of “Born This Way” with the proceeds going to The Ali Forney Center and the Born This Way Foundation. You can find out more about the project here, and buy the song on iTunes here.
The Hunger Games seems to be tracking to win the box office again this weekend, taking in an estimated $20 million. I’m hoping this means I can get a ticket by my next day off. The Three Stooges is heading for $17 million, and Joss Whedon’s The Cabin In the Woods is drawing $13 million.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may have decided to get married before we all have the ability in this country, but they do have the blessing of Equality California, who says “Marriage is something that says ‘we’re a family’ in a way that nothing else can … No one has to deny that for themselves or their family to prove they are an ally and supporter of equality.”
The New Adventures of Old Christine’s Tricia O’Kelley has replaced Eureka’s Salli Richardson in Rosanne Barr‘s Downwardly Mobile sitcom. Deadline says that Barr loved Richardson, but she just couldn’t get comfortable working in the multicamera sitcom format.
The topic of this article is James Franco revealing how he’s so productive, but I can’t get past the visual created by “Franco wears a prosthetic penis prop from his film Milk on his nose.”
In a move that I should have anticipated, Bill Donohue of The Catholic League is upset by the portrayal of nuns in The Three Stooges, especially the nun-kini worn by Kate Upton. Fox has responded in a glorious fashion, “The nuns that Mr. Donohue alludes to are, in fact, caring, heroic characters in the movie, albeit within the framework of a very broad comedy. And as far as the nun attire, I think we did the audience a favor by letting Kate Upton wear the nun-kini rather than Larry David — it could have gone either way.”
In an increasingly amazing cast, Ellen Burstyn has joined the USA Network’s limited series Political Animals. Ellen will play Sigourney Weaver’s mother, “a tough Chicago broad and one-time Vegas showgirl whose biting tongue and sharp wit haven’t softened despite her daughter’s position and she’s the first one to whip open a bottle of booze to help her through a political evening.”
One Direction reportedly panicked when they discovered The Wanted was heading to the same recording studio they were in, because The Wanted are reportedly “tough guys” and they were worried about being manhandled. Security for the two Brit groups got together to talk it over, but suddenly The Wanted’s Max dashed past everyone, grabbed Liam (One Direction) up in a big laughing hug. You may now begin writing slashfic.
Grindr named their top cities, with New York taking Best Gay City, London taking Best International City, and Los Angeles picking up Hottest Grindr Guys (Domestic) and Tel Aviv (International). I would like a travel budget from Logo to verify these findings.
By now you’ve heard that Newark mayor Cory Booker arrived home to find his neighbor’s house on fire. Instead of watching, he dashed away from his own security, ran upstairs and rescued someone from the flames. Why is this guy not president yet?
Meanwhile, Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin says he was chased by four bears that he was attempting to shoo away from his birdfeeders. Cory Booker would have four new rugs by now.
I’m just going to go ahead and take the unpopular position (again): It doesn’t matter if Maggie Gallagher is married or not, and this witch hunt by Fred Karger for her husband is vulgar and beneath the gay rights movement.
Liam Hemsworth is set to star in the spy thriller Paranoia, which could be huge if Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman sign on as rumored.
