OMG OMG OMG!!! After the fiasco that was the failed Aaliyah biopic movie that aired on Lifetime last weekend, I was pretty certain that the only thing that could get me to tune in and watch their channel again would be the forthcoming Whitney Houston biopic movie (due out next year, surely to piss off the world again) … but I *JUST* found out that Lifetime will air on Saturday night a TV movie titled An En Vogue Christmas which tells the fictional take of the members of En Vogue reuniting to perform an Xmas concert to save a concert theater. As I understand it, former En Vogue member Dawn Robinson is planning to sue the network because she has been excluded from the movie … SO YOU KNOW IT’S GOING TO BE GOOD/TERRRRRRRIBLE! OMG. An En Vogue Xmas movie with most of the members of En Vogue playing En Vogue. My head just exploded. I will deff be tuning in to watch this movie when it airs on Lifetime on Saturday night … WILL YOU JOIN ME?
Back in July we got an eyeful of the Warwick Rowing Team that decided to get naked in order to fight homophobia with their nakedness. Earlier this month, we were reminded of the great work they continue to do in this area of nakedness. Today we learn that the University of Nottingham Field Hockey Team has also decided to get naked in order to fight homophobia in sports and are sharing the video above of their equally hard and very important work. The video really speaks for itself. It’s probably wise to warn that the video is NSFW but in the fight for homophobia, we do what we must. Thanks for your efforts, guys. Please keep up the good work.

Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells and Michael C. Hall have all played Hedwig in the new Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. When MCH‘s run is finished in January, Hedwig creator and star of the original off-Broadway version of the show John Cameron Mitchell will star in the Broadway version of the show he created. I honestly cannot think of a better person to take over the reigns as Hedwig than John Cameron Mitchell. Brilliant, just brilliant. More »
Last week we learned the very sad news that MTV star of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge series Diem Brown lost her long fight with cancer and passed away at the far too young age of 32. Earlier this week, we read a lovely tribute written for Diem by her on-again/off-again boyfriend and fellow castmate on the MTV Challenges Chris CT Tamburello and today we get to see the 12 minute memorial video that was shown at Diem‘s funeral this week. The video has been released online by the family so that it can be shared with her legion of fans online. It’s a difficult video to watch, I’m telling you right now. Diem was a shining light in this world and she will be missed. Rest well, Diem, we love you.
For a few weeks now, we’ve seen video of music performances from the current season of American Horror Story: Freak Show where characters set in the 1950s perform modern day pop songs. Last night, actor Evan Peters performed a cover of Come As You Are by Nirvana on the show and while it was a fun performance, it had absolutely nothing at all to do with the storyline. Essentially, AHS has become a freak show version of Glee where pop songs are just thrown in because they have to be. I’m sorry to say that Freak Show has, thus far, been a very lackluster season of American Horror Story for me. While I thought the including of these fun musical performances helped the show, I know see that they are hurting the show. I dunno. I just don’t really care about what is happening this season on AHS and that’s a shame because this series really should be something to look forward to watching rather than something to just sit through. Did you watch last night? Are you loving this season?
It’s very possible that the embed above will stop working because it was uploaded by a fan but just in case, you can still hear the audio of Evan‘s cover of Come As You Are HERE.
Last year, Hostel director Eli Roth revealed that he directed unused music video footage the year before for Marilyn Manson that features Lana Del Rey that ended up being “so sick” that it sat “locked in a vault”. Today, we see that a portion of that previously unseen footage has made its way to the Internets. In the NSFW clip embedded above, we see a bit of disturbing imagery, including a scene where Lana Del Rey appears to be sexually assaulted (by, it looks like, director Eli Roth). This, folks, is what happens when Eli Roth, Marilyn Manson and LDR all decide to collaborate together.
Red Alert! Red Alert! Our dear Britney Spears *just* updated her official social media accounts, including her official Instagram profile, with a new photo that was snapped on the set of, well, something that she is filming to air on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight. Chances are, Britney is filming a little bit for a skit or a gag or something … but I suppose it is also in the realm of possibility that Brit is filming a pre-taped announcement that she dropping at midnight a brand new album of music which she must reveal via video rather than in person because the shock of such amazing news would surely send our civilization plunging into maddening ecstatic glee. Yeah, but it’s probably more likely that she’s filming a gag. More »
