Hey, You Girls!: Celebrating J.Lo & Laverne Cox @ The 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards Comments (0)

IMG_4819 Rita MorenoRita's company was electric!

J.Lo-GLAADI had fun at The 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton on Saturday, even though it feels like covering the show is becoming more and more of a crapshoot as far as which stars I'll actually get. I remember the days when Cynthia Nixon and Sigourney Weaver were speaking with every single outlet at one of these things; increasingly, the A-listers bypass all but the broadest media (skipping even Logo, the biggest gay media there, in some cases).

I arrived kinda late and was disappointed to discover my spot on the (indoor) carpet was in a hallway, so I'd be pressed against a wall as stars passed from photographers and TV media to large online and lesser online outlets. In all honesty, it worked out okay, in that no one was breathing down my neck, and any of the stars who didn't stop for me wouldn't have stopped for me no matter where I was.

He'd just been injured at an event a few days earlier, so a number of the attendees were inquiring as to his health. Glad he seems to have survived with his sense of humor intact—he laughed at everything I said!

Here's his take on the same evening.

Exchanging Of The Vanguard: Jennifer Lopez Honored By GLAAD Comments (0)

Jennifer-Lopez-GLAAD

At The 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards last night at the Beverly Hilton in L.A., the legendary—and still hot in her eighties!—Rita Moreno made a strong case for Jennifer Lopez as a deserving recipient of GLAAD's coveted Vanguard Award, praising Lopez for the LGBT-inclusive series she produces, The Fosters:

“She's a phenom. Jennifer knew she'd catch shit from anti-gay haters—and she did, before they had even shot a frame, she got all that. But she didn't care. Because in its boldness, bravery and entertainment factor, The Fosters has Jennifer's touch all over it. Everything! Everything this woman touches is golden. Cojno! [Putting on accent] I could keel her.”

In accepting the award, Lopez said:

“I have to give it up for my lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender fans becausethey be loyal...Finally, I really want to thank GLAAD for all of the important, daring, powerful work that you do, not only in mainstream media, but in Spanish-language media too. You all need to know that GLAAD is spreading the message of love and acceptance in English and en Espanol. El amor es el amor.”

I know a lot of gay people who sniff at GLAAD, and to be fair, there is a lot to poke fun at. But whenever I attend these events, I have to say the B.S. is very easy to see through, and what I wind up focusing on is the good that GLAAD accomplishes, whether it's coaching new-to-the-public-eye gay writers, activists and others on how best to express themselves, or leading the conversation on issues like the NYC St. Patrick's Day parade and the importance of words and yes, of image, in this world. It's certainly understandable that we may disagree with some of GLAAD's tactics, but there is a lot of good being done here.

J.Lo's new song is ridiculous, but her "let's make a statement about male objectification" music video is ridiculous.

Voicing Her Opinion Comments (5)
Shakira The Voice
Shakira and Usher are replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green on The Voice next season. Smart for Christina—she exits just as Britney Spears is entering The X-Factor, making it seem like her work is done/this genre is passé. But imagine getting vocal coaching from Shakira? Hers is so...unique! Good move for her that will help make her Topic A again, or at least B+. Hey, if J.Lo can be turned into the #1 Forbes star via a TV show, Shakira should be positioned nicely to do the same.

A J.Lo Blow Comments (3)

Star Magazine Casper Smart
J.Lo is denying the story by Star (August 13, 2012) that her loverboy Casper Smart visited a sex shop known for gay trysts, saying he was in that area to get his head shaved and his tattoo touched up. Which, come to think of it, are not mutually exclusive from being gay. But anyway, they're denying and/or in denial.
