"Why would the law treat [gays] differently?"
A week ago today, we learned that the US Supreme Court has decided to take up the case that will determine — once and for all — the legality of same-sex marriage here in the United States. In an interview at the White House with You Tube star GloZell Green, President Obama expressed his desire for the Supreme Court to come “to the right decision” and legalize same-sex marriage in our country. President Obama has spoken openly about his support for marriage equality in the past, so his comments in the interview embedded above aren’t a big surprise … but it’s still nice to hear our president endorse the equal treatment of all US citizens when it comes to marriage equality. The full interview is 47 minutes long but you can skip to the 23:40 mark of the video to hear Obama‘s comments on the upcoming Supreme Court decision.
"It's just as painful to watch my friend and mentor go through this"
Earlier this month, his Cosby Show TV wife Phylicia Rashad went on the record to defend Bill Cosby against his army of rape/assault accusers and today we hear from his TV son Malcolm-Jamal Warner as well. Warner has been nominated for a spoken word Grammy Award for the first time ever so he sat down with Billboard magazine to talk about his nomination and plans to attend the Grammy Awards.

"Nobody did anything wrong. You know what I mean?"
Jennifer Aniston, who’s new movie Cake opens in theaters this weekend, is profiled in the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter and in her cover story interview, she finally clears up once and for all the circumstances surrounding the end of her marriage to Brad Pitt all those years ago. Well, kinda clears up. Ever since Jen‘s marriage to Brad ended reportedly due to his cheating with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star (and now wife and mother of his children) Angelina Jolie, the three of them have been fodder for countless tabloid stories about what went down in Jen and Brad‘s marriage. The common theme is that Brad cheated on Jen with Angelina. In new comments made to The Hollywood Reporter, Jen suggests that no one cheated on anyone. She says, flat out, “nobody did anything wrong” … in a seeming attempt to end a decade long conversation about Brad being a cheater, Angelina being a home-wrecker and Jen being a sad gal. More »
She is the cutest thing EVER
Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany participated in a Google+ Hangout this week to talk about her SAG Award nomination, the forthcoming production of season 3 of OB and more. The video clocks in at over 27 minutes long, so it’s a commitment to watch online, but she is so the cutest thing ever that if you start watching this video, I suspect you’ll watch to the end. She is such a talent, which we already know, but this one on one interview video just shows us so much more to love about Ms. Maslany. Fans, you’re gonna wanna check this video out. She is the best.
“I was completely aware of what was happening”
Remember that story we heard last week about John Travolta creeping up on a guy at a Florida gym inside a completely empty gym at 3 AM? Well, it turns out that the guy — Justin Jones — gave an interview to The National Enquirer about the incident. When we first heard about the story, it wasn’t ENTIRELY CLEAR why Travolta decided to not only go up to the guy in the gym — unprompted — but also agree to pose for a photograph while he WASN’T wearing his hair piece. This new interview with Jones, tho, enlightens the situation a bit more. Justin says that he was “completely aware” of what John Travolta was doing once he approached him. Click below to hear what he has to say about the encounter. More »

"That whole idea for me is a sickening thing"
While promoting the forthcoming release of his new movie Mordechi in Berlin yesterday, Johnny Depp offered his opinion about actors who make music professionally and revealed that he SO not a fan of the practice … even tho he, himself, is an actor … who makes music. As I understand Johnny‘s comments, he sees nothing wrong with actor’s who play music with real musicians (like he does) but he finds the notion of actors who make their own music professionally (either solo or with their own bands) a “sickening thing”. Ok, then. Tell us more, Johnny Depp. More »
