Gus is a rare gay guy who talks about skiing some slopes without it meaning drugs, and he's also — as expected — 100% sweet. The event was messy! I arrived and got several different answers as to where to stand and what to do. I was even mistaken for Samsung staff and handed an official wristband IDing me as such. Okay!
Eventually, things became more clear, and Gus did a quick walk-through past us. I introduced myself (his boyfriend Matt Wilkas is currently attached to star in the Boy Culture Web series) and took some snaps of him with a few superfans, including a couple of guys who didn't look too shabby, even next to Gus! One guy, who later told me the day was one of the highlights of his life as a gay man and as an athlete, wisely had Gus sign some skis, which he happily did.
Colton Haynes went with his hard-bodied husband-to-be (pictured), and both showed their bare asses on Instagram after a midnight skinny-dip.
Who can say who had more fun? (I can: They did.) Keep reading for their full moons and more of the day's hottest links ...
The Profiles in History auction of the personal estates of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher is coming in September, and ... well, as you might expect, they had a lot of great shit.
Keep reading for the highlights of an auction that will be lots of fun and bring lots of tears ...
Andrew “Durandy” Golub, the author of The Music Between Us: Concert Ads of Duran Duran, also happens to be sitting on the world's largest Duran Duran archive — so you know the book he created was done so with something more alarming than mere love.
The hardcover, 107-page book will run you $45 plus shipping, but it's chock-full of rare print ads and posters, including for some items that never wound up happening.
As an ephemera addict, I couldn't take my eyes off of this, not even while dancing on the sand.
Bill Branch sent me these eye-popping shots of his masterpiece, a Madonna-themed jacket he created in 1990 to wear to the Washington, D.C., Blond Ambition World Tour stop.
He recalls, “I wore it once for 10 minutes.”
He did try to get Kurt Loder to show it to Madonna at the Truth or Dare premiere in NYC, but Loder didn't want the responsibility.
It was later displayed on his wall, but for most of its career — like Barry Manilow — it has bided its time in the closet.
Michael Bublé chatted with PrideSource, talking up his gay fans—and how his wife assumed he was gay when they met.
He gushed about his LGBTQ fans:
The truth is, I don't think I could've given them as much joy as they've given me. I'm in a business where, as you can imagine, I'm surrounded by the gay community. I mean, that's just my life. I'm an artist, and so I'm surrounded by other artists. And everyone from my hair stylist who lives with me on the road to (my stylist) Jeff Kim, who puts me in my suits every day - I mean, god, the question isn't who's gay? The question is, who isn't? (Laughs) And by the way, the ones that seem the most macho, they're probably gay.
As for his wife's little mistake:
Yes, she walked in this room with a man, and the man was so good lookin' that he made Brad Pitt look dumpy, so I assumed they were together. I naturally assumed that this was her boyfriend or her husband, so I refused to hit on her. And listen, it didn't help that she didn't speak English either at the time. Not a word. But the more I drank that night, the more brazen I got about trying to find out what the situation was between them. Finally, after two hours - and I don't know how many shots and glasses of whiskey - I finally said, (effects a drunk slur) "You guys are such a beautiful couple," and he said, "We're not together." He said, "She came because she likes you." And at the same time, she was on the phone texting her mom saying, "Oh my god, Michael Bublé is all over my friend. He's so gay."
My friend Bob Deutsch has the best celebrity-encounter stories ever, even better because his took place from the early '60s through the early '80s. He always had a special attachment to Carol Burnett, taking her picture many times on the street and at various shows, and even being asked into her apartment once to gift her with some baby items right after she had given birth.
As he explains above, when he was invited to go backstage last night in NYC at Carol's one-woman show (I saw it again—still great! Plus she sang a few bars of her theme song at the end and talked about her Twilight Zone), he was able to get a photo with her 52 years after the last one.
I love stuff like this, and I think Carol Burnett has to be the most accommodating and fan-friendliest celebrity ever, no? Then again, Bob's such a mensch I can't really imagine any star turning him down.
