Glee's Chris Colfer admits to being bullied, first in high school and recently over the Internet. Devotees of the popular Fox program will be gratified to learn that the cast is currently on a multi-city North American tour called Glee Live! The concert series is being recorded for an upcoming summer movie.
The producers of a Hindu soap opera may soon reveal that a major character is *gasp* homosexual. This, they cunningly allege, will explain why the man has been "shunning his bride."
When teen pop star Miley Cyrus tweeted about her support for same-sex marriage, not all of her fans were pleased. One responded snappishly: "what happened to that Christian girl from Tn with decent moral values and a lot of heart?" to which Miley replied with a snap of her own: "what an ignorant statemen. i dont have “alot of heart” cuz im not gonna be a closed-minded hypocrite? LOVE IS LOVE. GOD IS LOVE." Miley is also no fan of homophobe Rick Santorum or his conservative sycophants at the anti-gay sweatshop Urban Outfitters. For all those reasons I adore her.
You'll recall that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie once declared they would not get married until gay and lesbian citizens are permitted to tie the knot. Well, apparently Brad has changed their minds about that.
The movie Hangover Part II has just topped the opening weekend of the previous R-rated record-holder, Passion of the Christ. (For what that's worth.)
This sounds like fun: Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, and Gillian Anderson are teaming up for a British period piece about zombies tentatively titled The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet. I have died and gone to heaven.
Sir Elton John and David Furnish are on the short list for Celebrity Dad of the Year.
Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash says he wouldn't be upset if a fellow NBA athlete admitted to being gay. Nash told the NY Times: "If a player in the locker room came out, it would come and go quickly, too. I really don’t think it’s a big issue anymore. I think it would be surprisingly accepted, and a shorter shelf life than maybe we would imagine. I think the time has come when it should happen soon. I think it will be something that won’t take on this life of its own. It won’t be the O. J. trial." (In the struggle for equality, high-profile straight allies are invaluable.)
Almost seven years after the fact, Oliver Stone is blaming Warner Bros. studio execs for the failure of his bloated 2004 biopic Alexander. He says they made him cut too many sex scenes, which weakened the film. (I started watching the "director's cut" on DVD and couldn't finish it. What an ignoble tribute to a fascinating historical figure. Whoever decided to stick that tacky blond wig on Colin Farrell's head should be banned from the film industry.)
Chaz Bono's girlfirend insists that she has never identified as a lesbian.
Wow. Lindsay Lohan must really be serious about cleaning up her act. Wearing an electronic monitoring device and lounging by her pool, the out and proud actress has found time to endorse a new brand of smokeless cigarettes.
Thus concludes my humble imitation of Perez Hilton.
