Shame on us forgetting the piercing blue eyes and adorable smile of Kyle XY star Matt Dallas. Happy 2013 to us. Oh, and to Dallas too. Apparently he rang in the new year by both publicly announcing his engagement and the fact his beloved is a man in one convenient tweet! “Starting off the year with a new fiance, @bluehamilton. A great way to kick off 2013!” the actor gushed along with a photo of his musician boyfriend. On top of that, Matt’s tweet also introduced the world to the cutest dog alive and his little monkey friend. What can’t 140 characters do?
After seeing Glee’s Darren Criss’s photos in Out Magazine, we were ready to disguise ourselves as a 15-yead-old boy and sneak into a prep school for his character Blaine. That’s not that creepy, is it? Oh, it is? Eeep! Luckily for our fantasy lives, Glee creator Ryan Murphy reveals that Blaine is bisexual, a fact that will apparently throw a wrench into his budding relationship with Chris Colfer‘s Kurt. “It’s my job as showrunner to keep them apart as long as possible,” Ryan Murphy tells Out. “Blaine will openly question whether bisexuality is real. I think that some people will love that discussion and some will not love it.” Jeez, can’t our poor ascot-loving countertenor ever catch a break in the man-department? Ten bucks says he hooks up with Santana!
Unfortunately, Kurts the world over after going to be quietly singing “Teenage Dream” to themselves tonight after they find out that real-life Darren is a fan of the ladies. “I think it’s more empowering to everybody, including myself, if I’m articulate about identifying myself as a straight male playing a gay character,” Criss explains. “Ultimately, that’s more powerful for both communities.” A straight man playing a bisexual guy who’s comfortable showing off his manscaping in a gay men’s magazine? We think our minds are open enough for that. Sorry, Kurt!
Our collective efforts to let Kanye West be great continue to fail, you guys. If Twitter is any indication, Kanye West is on the defensive after his Britney Spears joke. Cracked West on Friday, “Yo Britney, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time!” After Britney’s manager Adam Lebercalled the rapper out as condescending, Kanye scrambled to explain. “When I said the comment about Brittney I was giving her props for being #1 not dissing her at all!,” West claimed. “As pop stars we’re all in this shit together! We on the inside of the TV!” If Kanye actually thinks he’s inside of a TV, that explains the last two or three years of his career.
Maybe it’s time for West to branch out into a new media, perhaps one that isn’t tweet-based? According to Media Takeout, Kanye has signed on to play a gay jazz player in a period film set in 1939. “Kanye has signed on to do some acting, in a flick about a GAY jazz band in 1939. He plays a GAY band member, and there is EXPLICIT gay sex in this movie,” says their anonymous source. “The script won 9 awards, so i think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s good. The Oscars Academy has this thing called the nicholl, a competition for screenplays, and the script for the movie won there twice, so I guess that means it will be one of those oscar films. It isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the typical hood movie rappers do.” Hmm, there sure are a lot of random capitalization in that leakÃ¢â‚¬Â¦maybe enough to make it legit? We would definitely see this film, though someone might have to cut Kanye’s lines down to 140 characters at a time.
If you are operating heavy machinery or prone to fainting spells you might want to take a seat, as Olympic skater and diva Johnny Weir has come out of the closet. Finally. In his new memoir Welcome to My World, Weir admits that “In a sexual way, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m gay,” which sounds like a great way to be it. ApparentlyÃ‚Â Weir knew he was gay since childhood, reminiscing how “Watching Richard Gere in Pretty Woman at the tender age of six was when I had first realized there was something different about me…Kissing seemed like a weird thing to do, but I knew if I was going to do it, it would be with Richard Gere.” That movie made us feel the exact same way!
While he had been feeling pressure from gay advocate groups for a while to publicly announce his orientation, Weir decided to come out now as a way to support the next generation of LGBTQ youth. “With people killing themselves and being scared into the closet, I hope that even just one person can gain strength from my story,” Weir explained. Huge fabulous hats off to Johnny for the announcement, and be sure to check back in tomorrow when we reveal or not rain is wet (we’ll give you a hint: it is).
Somebody’s snarking on Jennifer Aniston, and surprisingly its not about her empty womb or lack of a man-friend. In an interview with BBC4, actor Rupert Everett criticized Jennifer Aniston’s “tasteless rom-coms.” Everett wasn’t really concerned that The Bounty Hunter was so terrible it sent 75% of its viewing audience into a coma; instead he wondered how Jen can keep making putrid movies like The Switch and still get cast in major motion pictures. “Okay, something will go wrong. Like Jennifer Aniston will just have one too many total flops. But she’s still a member of that club. And she will still manage to Ã¢â‚¬â€ like a star forming in the universe Ã¢â‚¬â€ a whole lot of things swirling around and suddenly solidifying into yet another vital tasteless romcom: a little glitter next to the Crab Nebula,” Everett complained. We love Jen, but we agree: girlfriend must have made a deal with the Devil to be starring in anything more dramatically challenging than Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch.
Rupert is nothing if not out-spoken, and he is more than willing to also call out Hollywood for what he as a gay actor sees as a hetero bias. “Show business is ideally suited for heterosexualsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ It’s a very heterosexual business. It’s run mostly by heterosexual menÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ and I think the position of women in show business is quite difficult.” Particularly if you’re Jennifer Aniston, we guess. Though with all the jokes about her Cathy-like dating history, maybe an insult aimed at her acting ability will seem like a nice change of pace!
We know that James Franco’s gay prostitute story is only going to fuel rumors that our future husband is gay, but lordy, how we don’t care right now. While on Inside the Actor’s Studio this week, Franco explained that he was hanging out with a gigolo named Sonny to prepare for a role and, well, “He took me on one of his jobs.” We didn’t even have to turn that into a double entendre to make it filthy! Our favorite part of the video is when James Lipton screams, “We certainly do!” as he encourages Franco to tell the story. In that one moment, James Lipton represented the America public: one classy, bespectacled voice screaming for all.
Said a bashful James, “So I did…and it went down. Everything went down like you see in the movies.” Not only is James Franco intensely dedicated to his craft, but we both like the same movies! So, just to recap: James Franco watched a gay prostitute have sex with a client, and then talked about it on Inside the Actor’s Studio. We don’t know which part is making our brain explode more. Okay, yeah we do: it’s the gay sex part.
According his Oprah appearance this Tuesday, after coming out Ricky Martin was “crying like a baby”. Ironically, that is also what half of the female population of the planet was doing after Ricky Martin came out.
In the episode, Martin discusses his coming out email, in which he declared “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man.” We know hind-sight is 20/20, Ricky, but that statement’s only 86 characters. Come on, Twitter was made for this kind of stuff.
Says Martin, “When I realized, okay, I just pressed send, whoo … I was alone. I was in my studio alone for a minute. My assistant walked in and I just started crying like a little baby. I started crying.” Also weeping like a baby that day? Your best friend’s mom, your favorite aunt and your 60-year-old cubicle mate who constantly sings Nobody Wants To Be Lonely under her breath. We mean, we could barely hear our Cup Of Life remix CD over all that weeping!
It was Ricky’s twins Valentino and Matteo that finally inspired him to take the leap out of the closet: “I couldn’t take it anymore. It was too painful. But I guess the most important thing is my children … When I was holding them in my arms I was like, ‘What, am I gonna teach them how to lie?’ Whoa, that is my blessing right there. Then, when I was holding my children I said, ‘Okay, it’s time to tell the world.’ ” What is this wet stuff coming out of our eyes? Our cold icy hearts seem to be melting at the combination of coming out success plus hot dad plus cute babyness. Either that or our brains are leaking. Which is still less embarrassing than crying at a Ricky Martin post, so let’s go with that. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Man, can we go just one week without a faded rocker admitting to a fling with a cross-dressing gay British pop star? That what’s our fantasy celeb gossip blog would look like…and today it’s coming true! Despite denying a relationship in the past,Gavin Rossdale now admits to a gay fling with pop-star Marilyn, formerly known as Peter Robinson. When question about it in a new Details interview, Gwen Stefani’s better half says, “It’s not something I’ve talked about really because it’s always been in the glare of a tabloid world. It’s just one of those things: Move on. When you’re 17, Jesus Christ. I don’t think there’s anything strange about any form of–you’re learning about life. It’s a part of growing up. That’s it. No more, no less.” Good think Gavin’s career needs a boost so he is finally reading to talk about it…and for the tabloids to scream like a little girl over it!
When asked if it was a one-time fling, Rossdale claims, “That was it. You have to know what you like, and I know what I like.” Hmm…porcelain skin, long blond hair, devastating cheek bones…yup, he is definitely sure! [Photo: Getty]
Someone must have gotten their hands on our diary from the tenth grade, because not only are two of our favorite heartthrobs Leonard DiCaprio and Joaquin Phoenix rumored to be starring in a film together, they will also be getting their smooch onÃ¢â‚¬Â¦with each other.
Sources say a newly shaven and deloused Joaquin Phoenix may play Leo DiCaprio’s lover in Clint Eastwood’s new film Hoover, a biopic about famed FBI director J. Edgar Hoover that explores his rumored romance with protege Clyde Tolson; it will also be the actors’ first movie together. And here we were, content to just edit together clips of Signs and Catch Me If You Can, sync them up to Taylor Swift’s “Mine” and upload them onto YouTube. Hurray for Hollywood!
After admitting that his performance in Casey Affleck’s movieI’m Still Here was an elaborate hoax, we’re just happy to see Phoenix getting roles at all. If nothing else it will be a chance for everyone to remember what a smoking hot hottie Joaquin used to be before he became scraggly, sleeping-under-an-overpass-but-not-really Joaquin. What better way to celebrate his return to attractiveness than to have Phoenix hop in the sack with DiCaprio under the direction of Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood. OhÃ¢â‚¬Â¦oh no! Now Clint’s in there too! Argh, get out of our imaginations, Eastwood! We’re sure this movie will be excellent if these two co-star in it, but if you’ll excuse us, we have to go scrub our brains out with lye.
rnrnConfirming what we had all been suspecting for so long, Inception star Tom Hardyattested to the fact that, yes, all actors do have gay sex. WE KNEW IT. rnrnWhen questioned about any time spent playing with the boys, Hardy told the inquisitive reporter, “Of course I have. I’m an actor for f*ck’s sake. I’ve played with everything and everyone.” And the truth will set you freeeeeeeee!!! Why can’t more actors just be honest about all the steamy gay love they are making to each other? It would certainly make our jobs easier, that’s for sure. rnrnHardy continued, “I’m done experimenting but there’s plenty of stuff in a relationship with another man, especially gay men, which I need in my life”. We can identify. Hardy is currently engaged to an actual woman, actress Charlotte Riley (pictured above), and has a child with an ex-girlfriend, so we believe him when he says that his personal gay ship has sailed. That said, could someone please, please cast him in a movie with Tom Cruise? We could really use the gossip…rnrn[Photo: Getty Images]
