Pascal Tessier Becomes The First Openly Gay Eagle Scout

The Highest Honor of the Boy Scouts of America

In May of last year, the Boy Scouts of America voted to allow openly gay members to join/be a part of their organization and on January 1, the restriction banning gay members was lifted. Today we learn that 17 year old Pascal Tessier has just become the first openly gay Eagle Scout in the history of the Boy Scouts of America. Now, keep in mind, there have been countless Boy Scouts who are gay and countless gay Eagle Scouts but Tessier is the first gay Eagle Scout to be officially sanctioned by the BSA. And, as happy as this news is … the BSA‘s policy to ban gay adults in their organization has tarnished Tessier‘s story because when he turns 18, they could boot him out of the Boy Scouts of America. Ugh. More »

W magazine managed to convince a group of celebrities to get in bed with them and hired famed photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to photograph them for their magazine … which resulted in a sexy, fun and sometimes NSFW photospread. True Blood actor Joe Manganiello smolders with his face pressed into his pillow while Miranda Kerr just becomes the epitome of sexy as she presses her naked body into her bed sheets. Miley Cyrus bares both of her breasts because that’s what Miley Cyrus does these days while other celebs like Rita Ora, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Tyra Banks, Pharrell and others pose in various stages of undress.

Watch: Here Is The ONLY Scene You Need To See From ‘That Awkward Moment’

You're Welcome
The only 'Awkward Moment' clip you need to see

Remember back in October when we learned that Zac Efron would be baring his bum in his new movie titled That Awkward Moment? Well, the movie has been released in theaters for some time now and what I’m hearing is that the movie isn’t really all that good. I don’t think anyone was expecting grand things from this flick but I know I, at least, was hoping it would be worth checking out. It turns out that the bum-baring clip that was featured in the trailer we saw last year has made its way online, which you can watch above in all it’s NSFW glory. From what I understand, this is the part of the movie worth seeing so … enjoy watching while you can. I may yet head out to see That Awkward Moment in theaters if only to see this scene on the big screen. That has to be worth the price of admission, right?

Watch: Do YOU Want David Beckham To Be #Uncovered Or #Covered In The New ‘David Beckham Bodywear’ Commercial

Vote for the Super Bowl Ad YOU would like to see
#Uncovered or #Covered

Back in November we got to see the latest images from the David Beckham Bodywear Holiday 2013 ad campaign, which was a lovely sight if I do say so myself, but we are in a new year … and we have a NEW Bodywear ad campaign to look forward to. H&M has wisely decided to launch their 2014 ad campaign for David Beckham Bodywear during the Super Bowl next month and they want YOU to vote for the ad that will air on TV. The video embedded above is a preview meant to inspire YOU to head over to HM.com starting MONDAY and vote for the ad you want to see on Super Bowl Sunday. Do you want to see David Beckham #Uncovered in the ad … or do you want to see him #Covered? I mean, duh, it’s a no brainer for me but what do YOU think? Check out the video above, decide and then vote. Then click below to see a neat behind the scenes video that was shot on the set of this commercial shoot. It looks like Becks put himself in mortal danger for our benefit so the least we can do is watch these videos over and over and over again … that is, until the full TV commercial is released on Super Bowl Sunday.

Trent Reznor Reveals That He Will Score David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl’ Film

Reznor to re-team with Atticus Ross

Trent Reznor confirmed yesterday on his official Twitter profile that he and collaborator Atticus Ross have signed on to compose the score for David Fincher‘s new film Gone Girl. As you may know, Reznor and Ross previously worked on Fincher directed films The Social Network (for which the pair won an Academy Award) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. When it was announced that Fincher would helm the big screen adaptation of Gone Girl, it occurred to me that he might tap Reznor and Ross to compose the score. Now that Reznor has confirmed the news, we can be assured that all will continue to be right with the world. More »

Drake And Sasheer Zamata FTW
Drizzy/Weezy/Urkel

Okay. I’m just gonna go ahead and say it. Black people… make life… happy! OMG. I am watching the videos from last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live and I am cracking UP over here! Drake killed it, Sasheer was great, and there was a Family Matters sketch (called Before They Were Stars) that shall go down in history as the greatest Family Matter parody of all time. There’s a Lil Wayne bit in it and… I just lost it. It was perfection. Trent sent me this hilarious Buzzfeed post about the interweb’s reaction to the first SNL episode of the new year, in which folks dubbed it the “blackest” episode ever. I agree, and I am proud of my people today. The pyramids, the Blues, last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live: YOU’RE WELCOME, world. You’re welcome. LMAO! Peep the video above to see Drake‘s amazing opening monologue, and click inside for more!
