OMG.BLOG!: When the movie is short, but is long on male nudity.

COLLIDER: Oof, bad take. Yet another writer decides The Boys in the Band was negative — sorry, in 1970, it was extremely helpful to see gay people as whole, flawed individuals and not murderers and suicides. This writer's bio states he's obsessed with The Real Housewives ... which of COURSE isn't negative toward women.

ROLLING STONE: Venerable magazine Rolling Stone may be entering its dementia phase, publishing a patently absurd list of the 200 greatest (not necessarily technically) singers of all time that found space for Billie Eilish and a BTS guy, but snubbed Céline Dion (while she's ailing, great response to her illness), Janet Jackson, Dionne Warwick, Madonna, Judy Garland, Connie Francis, Edith Piaf, Tom Jones ... the list goes on and on.

TWITTER: How can this POS George Santos walk into the Capitol and be seated after his pathological lies? Meanwhile, Brazil is going to prosecute his ass for fraud.

LGBTQ NATION: An ex-boyfriend of Santos's (hey, at least he's really gay) who dated him when he was 18 and Santos 26 (according to the GOP, that equals groomer, no?) has come forth to say Santos is actually lying about even more than we already know!

INSTAGRAM: Erick Adame, fired from his TV gig for embarrassing, sexually explicit videos that leaked, is speaking out months later, framing himself as a victim and saying people who saved footage from his livestreams are sexual predators. I'm not sure I am on board with all he is saying, but anyone who deliberately saved his videos only to send them to his employer and his mom is definitely a POS and should be sued for intentional infliction of emotional distress and tortious interference. Still, Adame did engage in seemingly self-humiliating (he denies this) behavior, and did willingly broadcast it; do any of us in 2022 really think livestreams aren't capturable? I do hope he finds work again, and I think we need to get to a place where it's more clear what should and should not matter to employers when it comes to employees' private and public — but off-the-clock — personal expression.

HUFF POST: Trump's chief White House photographer recalled the agitation Trump expressed in having to making his belated, January 7 address after January 6 failed to result in the desired result — overturning a U.S. election.

TWITTER: Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) and Matt Gaetz (R-Florida), who are part of a small contingent saying they're steadfastly against voting for Kevin McCarthy for Speaker of the House ... got lost in the Capitol yesterday:

VARIETY: Damar Hamlin's dramatic heart attack at 24 in the midst of Monday's Bills-Bengals game resulted in him nearly dying (he's in an ICU now), his charitable toy drive ballooning to nearly $4M in donations and a flood of anti-vaxxers (including Dr. Drew) saying or insinuating that even though he had just been tackled, his attack was sudden and therefore must be vaccine-related.

EXTRATV: Robin Roberts is getting married!!!

TWITTER: Drew Barrymore is working hard to get fit — mind and body. Inspirational, and the exact opposite of those fucking assholes at Equinox:

BILLBOARD: Fred White, the drummer for Earth, Wind and Fire, has died at 67. He joins Gangsta Boo, 43, Alan Rankine of the Associates (unless he died in December), and American comic Kelly Monteith, 80 — who was on The Love Boat and became a star in the U.K. with his self-titled series (1979-1984) — as the first celebrities to die in 2023.
