A few days ago we learned that a co-host on CNBC accidentally outed Apple CEO Tim Cook on live television. Yesterday, Cook openly and proudly attended a Gay Pride event in San Francisco, CA. Coincidence? Confirmation? Who knows. Altho Tim Cook has yet to formally “come out” as a gay man, he appears to be making it very clear that he is proud of who he is without having to come out and say so. Click below to see the photo that Tim happily snapped with an Apple employee at yesterday’s Pride event. More »

Jump Around? Naw, CALM DOWN!
Busta Rhymes is coming at us with a new album titled E.L.E. 2 (a follow-up to his 1998 album Extinction Level Event: The Final World Front) at some point this year and to get us excited for the album’s release we get to hear a new track titled Calm Down which features Eminem on guest vocals. Calm Down samples the 1992 song Jump Around by House Of Pain, which is only all kinds of amazing. Click below to hear Busta and Em on Calm Down in full. More »
'When you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.'
When I heard that Nicki Minaj was throwing shade at Iggy Azalea and calling her out on her authenticity, I was all prepared to go on a rant about how pots who modeled themselves after Lil’ Kim should not be calling Australian kettles black. Ahem. However, now that I’ve actually read the full story and watched the video (which, unfortch, has been removed by BET), it appears that I have fallen under the spell of the one Onika Maraj (once again) and am kind of, totally on her side.

Surprise! He looks exactly like Henry Cavill but in a suit
Back in May when we got our first look at Ben Affleck in costume as Batman as he will appear in the upcoming movie Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Interwebs exploded with a flurry of excited discussion. Today we get our first look at actor Henry Cavill in costume on the set of Dawn of Justice but I don’t expect this photo to cause much discussion at all. As you can see below, Henry is in costume as Superman‘s secret identity Clark Kent … so he basically looks like Henry Cavill in a suit. But still … Clark Kent, everybody! More »
Woo, I mean woo ...
Robin Thicke is heavily promoting the release of his new album Paula with the aggressive release of new material from the album before the album is even released in stores. Last week we saw the music video for Get Her Back and we got to hear a clip of the song Lock the Door. Today we get to see the lyric video for the song Forever Love which, along with the rest of the songs on the Paula album, is another attempt at wooing back Thicke‘s estranged wife Paula Patton. Click the embed above to watch the lyric video for Forever Love and see if YOU think it will do the trick and successfully convince Paula to take her estranged husband back.

After I got a few things done around the house yesterday morn, I made my way down to Anaheim to meet up with some new friends for a fun day-long hang at Disneyland and California Adventure. As you may recall, I’m joining the Disneyland social club Sons of Anakin and yesterday was another one of our regular hang-out sessions. Because I will be out of town next weekend for 4th of July, I decided to spend as much time in the parks yesterday to make up for missing out next weekend. I had the best time ever. More »

I love it already.
We have seen some pretty awesome movie trailers over the past few days, between Aubrey Plaza‘s new zombie rom-com and what will probably be my new favorite movie The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. Now we’ve got this fantastic little gem to look forward to—The Skeleton Twins, starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader as estranged siblings who reunite after 10 year. Hader plays a struggling gay actor and Wiig is married to Luke Wilson‘s character (amen to that), but is having an affair… with her scuba instructor, obvs. The draw here (other than all of that) is that this is actually a dramatic script, so while there’s plenty to laugh about, it looks like we’ll also get to see the Saturday Night Live alums going a different route. I dig it so far!
What are your initial thoughts based on the trailer?
Earlier today Shannon revealed the struggle she has with the red carpet fashions at The BET Awards last night but I was too obsessed with the on stage reunion of Color Me Badd during the awards show to pay attention to, well, anything else. Three of the four original members of Color Me Badd reunited for a live performance of their 1991 hit I Wanna Sex You Up and altho the performance left much to be desired, I loved it completely and absolutely. CMB‘s performance was part of a throwback homage to the 90s and, honestly, was the only thing I had eyes or ears for. Click the video above to watch Color Me Badd‘s performance of I Wanna Sex You Up at The BET Awards last night (their performance starts at the 1:25 minute mark) and let’s go back to the early 90s together, shall we?

Like ... super hot, really gay sex
SO … did you watch True Blood last night? ‘Cuuuuuuuuz, if you didn’t then you missed seeing something that many fans of the show have been DYING to see finally happen. Without getting too much into the specifics of this scene came to be (in order to not get too spoilery, or whatever), I’ll just let you know that Jason Stackhouse (played by Ryan Kwanten) and Eric Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgård) had a very romantic, really hot gay sex scene on True Blood last night. Forget the whys … all you need to know is that Ryan Kwanten and Alexander Skarsgård had TV SEX … and in case you missed it, you can watch the scene in full above. I’m gonna go ahead and say that this video clip may be NSFW, so watch at your own discretion. But do watch. Trust me, you’re gonna wanna see this.

RDJ issues an official statement
Robert Downey, Jr.‘s 20-year old son Indio Falconer was arrested in West Hollywood, CA yesterday on drug possession charges after police noticed him smoking “something” out of a pipe as he drove in car with friends. The car was pulled over and Indio was found with cocaine in his possession. As you may know, RDJ long-suffered from drug addiction in the 90s and naturally, he is very concerned for his son. RDJ has already issued an official statement regarding his son’s arrest, which you can read in full below. More »
Whatever. Her hair's still awesome.
Okay, before we get to the tattoo… I need to just say that—in terms of style and fashion sensibility and seemingly doing whatever the f— she wants in that department—I’m kind of, very much into Kelly Osbourne. So, I had to include a few pre-head tattoo photos of her just looking faboulous in all her lavender glory.
Now, about the tattoo. It reads “Stories…” and of all the head tattoos I’ve seen in my day, this is the one I’m least opposed to. Maybe I’m biased. Or crazy. But I’m sort of okay with this head tattoo. LMAO. Peep the gallery for more! Your thoughts?!

Kerry Washington, Zendaya, And Way Too Much White
Okay, disclaimer: I didn’t see the 2014 BET Awards red carpet live. Maybe some of these looks were better IRL, but ummm. What’s going on here? Okay, good news first: Kerry Washington looked like Kerry Washington, and that made me feel good. But, literally everyone else was wearing white! No, seriously. Everyone. Okay, there were, like, 5 other people not wearing white but it was everywhere. And you know I love me a white dress, but this felt like overkill.
Also, I want to hear what everyone thinks about Adrienne Bailon‘s look because she was totally trending last night. She, too, wore white. It’s fine.

That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
Okay, y’all know I love to scour Amber Rose‘s Instagram for new photos of little Sebastian every now and again. So you can imagine my semi-surprise when I saw that she had shared a very special moment with the one and only Courtney Love. I say ‘semi-surprise‘ because motherhood hasn’t exactly changed the fact that Amber
still comes off as someone who would totally make out with Courtney Love (and I like that about her).
Anyway, both ladies were in attendance at last night’s BET Awards and, well, I guess some stuff popped off… lol. Click inside for more!

PITNBr Lacey FTW!
Last week my Sunday night was a hot mess, as some of you may remember I had a big, scary, looming deadline for my big, fat, amazing Orange Is The New Black cover story. There were soooo many great comments that I didn’t get to share, so some of them might be mixed up with this week’s round-up. I’m just saying that so y’all don’t judge me for breaking round-up protocol. Oh, but you totally will because I’m also breaking protocol by including an epic tweet we got from PITNBr Lacey but so what! You can’t stop me! I’m rebellin’ like cray against round-up protocol—mua-hahahaha! Click inside for more!
