Gay Tidings She Brings Comments (4)

My friend Angel Love (the queen who loves Kylie Minogue so much he's even promoting her frackin' CD in his photo op with her) was granted this special photo with Kylie as a VIP attendee of the tree-lighting ceremony tonight at Rockefeller Center. Good for him—great pic! Kylie approached him and commented positively on his "Kylie" Santa hats. I have to give it up for Kylie—she is leaving no stone unturned in her most recent attempt to break America! She's working it relentlessly, as should all eager popstars of all ages.

Also, Kylie was attacked for lip-synching during the Thanksgiving Day Parade. Seriously??? She's 100% right to be pissy about the criticism. Everyone lip-synchs for that. EVERYONE.

Illinois's House has passed a historic civil unions bill! Now, it goes to the Senate and then to be signed into law. Awesome.

Pentagon report on the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell—it wouldn't be a big deal and rumors of the predatory nature of gays is stereotypical.

Thanks to everyone for sending me urges to post on Madonna's Mexican opening of her Hard Candy fitness chain. The truth is...it doesn't interest me much so I hadn't really thought about posting it. I do like the dress!

Here's some great video (thanks, Walter) from the event. The PR guy is sooo not having it! Interestingly, Madonna confirms she'll collaborate with someone secret on her new record. GaGa? It would be great, yet also wouldn't be terribly surprising. Maybe she has someone more WTF in mind.

That's Sooo Gay Comments (7)

Depp1
Disney hated Johnny Depp's performance as Captain Jack Sparrow when it first got a look at Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl; so says Depp in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair (December 2010):

"They couldn't stand him. They just couldn't stand him. I think it was Michael Eisner, the head of Disney at the time, who was quoted as saying, 'He's ruining the movie.'..Upper-echelon Disney-ites, going, 'What's wrong with him? Is he, you know like some kind of weird simpleton? Is he drunk? By the way, is he gay?'.'..And so I actually told this woman who was the Disney-ite...'But didn't know you that all my characters are gay?' Which really made her nervous."

He wound up getting an Oscar nomination.

According to The New Gay, Stephen King's Full Dark, No Stars has a lesbian villain who's sketched perhaps a bit heavily:

"King has to make (her) a character who is capable of raising two rapist monsters for sons and it seems that making her extremely gender-nonconformist is the way to do it."

Hurlesque Comments (32)

Burlesque broke a leg in the bad way over the holiday weekend, making only $17 million since its highly publicized debut on Thanksgiving Day; for a film that cost over $55 million (and one whose daily attendance figures are sinking), that's the equivalent of getting the hook.

Meanwhile, Nikki Finke mrows that its director and the studio head who inexplicably greenlighted it broke up after 20 years of togetherness over disagreements while making the film.

I suppose the movie could have made even less money and been even more disastrous. Did any of you see it? I'm 100% certain it will get Netflix money from my household.
