The past few days have been a whirlwind of emotions for me, so much so that I’ve had a bit of a hard time catching my breath. As you are well aware, so many things — both big and small — have turned our culture and our country upside down. From the tragedy that came out of South Carolina with that racist terrorist attack to the stunning revolutionary civil rights decision that came out of Washington DC and everything in between … we’ve all been through the ringer for better or worse. I, personally, have been going through some stuff lately and well … it’s been a lot. Thankfully, I’ve been able to find support and love from my friends who, themselves, are dealing with their own issues. Needless to say, change is in the air. But, above it all, is my intense sense of happy pride. This weekend has been full of rainbows and love and positivity for me … and I am just trying to revel in it all for as long as I can. More »

Bringing in the private investigators
I’m not sure if we’ve heard from the last accuser, but it’s been fairly quiet on the Bill Cosby front since Beverly Johnson came forward with her story. Since then Bill Cosby’s wife has come out in defense of her husband, and now it appears that Cosby is taking steps to discredit his accusers. This is the part of rape trials and public accusations that we’ve all been warned about, so I think I know what to expect. Click inside for more.

"I’m so excited."
Back in May, we started hearing casting rumors about the upcoming second season of True Detective on HBO. We heard that HBO was considering casting female leads for the show … but rumors that Jessica Chastain was up for the show turned out to be untrue. The show’s creator, Nic Pizzolatto, confirmed that True Detective season 2 will feature 3 lead actors but since then, we’ve gotten no confirmation that anyone has been cast on the show. In an interview with The Sunday World, actor Colin Farrell has revealed that he has been cast on the second season of True Detective. He doesn’t give much more detail about TD season 2 but his announcement that he will appear on the show is the first bit of big news to come thus far. More »
So... much... gross
Trent just sent me the worst e-mail ever. It was a link to a report from The New York Post, in which multiple maids who used to live and work at Michael Jackson‘s Neverland Ranch are coming forward with… stuff. I mean, the truth is, once you’ve heard the sexual abuse allegations, there really isn’t anything worse than that. Still, these new statements paint an even creepier picture of the King of Pop—or maybe “sadder” is a better word. Click inside for more.

"The Daily Mail has printed a completely fabricated story"
George Clooney is the subject of many tabloid stories, particularly many stories published by the British tabloid The Daily Mail. Since his relationship with fiancée Amal Alamuddin (a British citizen) came to light, The Daily Mail has been publishing stories about the couple (many of them outlandish) on an almost daily basis. Yesterday, they went too far when they published a story that made the claim that Alamuddin‘s mother was against her engagement to Clooney on “religious reasons”. Never one to respond to tabloid stories, Clooney was compelled to write an open letter to The Daily Mail to slam the story and make his argument public that fabricated stories like this can be harmful, dangerous and are irresponsible. Click below to read Clooney‘s full response to this Daily Mail story and then find out how the tabloid responded to Clooney‘s letter. More »
"i regret trusting the guardian"
Last week we learned of an interview published in The Guardian newspaper that suggested that singer Lana Del Rey wished she was dead. As goth and emotive as Lana Del Rey‘s persona is, I really thought that her admission that she she wished she was dead was entirely silly. It turns out that LDR thinks it’s silly, too, because in a series of Tweets that she just posted online, it would appear that her death comments were taken out of context and manipulated into a sensational story. Click below to read what LDR has to say about her chat with The Guardian. More »
