Kanye West, looking about as miserable as he has ever looked in his life, is featured on the cover of the new issue of Q magazine. In his cover story interview, the subject of Kanye‘s mother — Donda Williams West — came up after he was asked about the thing that he sacrificed in his life to achieve his massive success. West‘s response, simply, was that his mother was the thing that he sacrificed for fame. All artists have to make sacrifices at some point in their careers in order for them to achieve their goals. In Kanye‘s case, he believes that his push for fame resulted in his mother’s death … which he blames himself for.

Yesterday, in the wake of the momentous Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage in the entirety of the United States of America, I made my way to the heart of West Hollywood, CA so that I could revel in the jubilant celebration that erupted there. People from all over the Los Angeles area flocked to WeHo to be part of the electric excitement that exploded. Media outlets from all over the area sent reporters to West Hollywood to document it all. It was a really spectacular sight to see. Many of my friends convened in the West Hollywood park to participate in the celebratory rally that took place there, in much the same way we gathered in the very same spot 2 years ago when the Supreme Court invalidated and abolished the Defense of Marriage Act. While there were numerous celebrations big and small all around the country, it was really a wonderful thing to be part of the celebration in West Hollywood. More »
Earlier this month, we learned that actor Jon Bernthal has been cast as The Punisher / Frank Castle in the forthcoming second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. It is commonly known that both Daredevil and The Punisher are both heroes that fight the forces of evil in NYC (tho, in very different ways). But, that’s not to suggest that the two heroes are necessarily friends. Today we hear that The Punisher will be featured heavily in season two of Marvel’s Daredevil but NOT as a villain per se … which means that the TV show story will very likely follow the adversarial story between these two that has been told and retold in the Marvel comic books. The season is being described as “Daredevil vs. The Punisher“, which has a really nice ring to me. More »
This weekend I’ll be somewhere very, very special celebrating my Dirty Thirty (follow me on Instagram to find out where, and how many mimosas I will have had by Saturday morning), and I’ve decided to pretend I’m Rihanna for at least 7 hours out of every day. Of all the fashionistas we have out here, she’s one of few who really seems to wear exactly what she wants, all of the time, without giving a whole heap of effs about it. The word is “effortless.” She’s not trying, and it looks SO good. Peep the gallery for all the fashion inspiration you’ll need this summer, or ever in life.

At the start of this week, we got to hear and then preview the music video for Selena Gomez‘s new single Good For You (Featuring A$AP Rocky). Today we get to see the finished product. The music video for Good For You is fairly minimalistic with scenes of Selena laying on a couch, taking a shower, sitting in front of a wall, laying on the floor … you know, minimalistic. The vid is so minimal that A$AP Rocky doesn’t feature in it at all. HMMM. Have a look, see what you think. Does this video make you like the song any more or nah?
At the start of this month, we got to see the first video promo for Caitlyn Jenner‘s upcoming docuseries I Am Cait, which will debut on E! next month.

Altho the Supreme Court of the United States stole Shannon’s thunder a little bit by legalizing same-sex marriage here in the US, I’d like to take the time NOW to ask you to join me in celebrating her special day today. Our dear Shannon is on holiday this weekend for her Dirty 30 Birthday so, I’m hoping, she won’t be anywhere near a computer for a while to be distracted by the blog. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t send her all of the Birthday Lurve we can muster today. Shannon’s Facebook profile is a treasure trove of amazing photos of our Shannon, some of which I have collected in this gallery. I know you guys love her as much as I do so let’s wish her the Happiest Birthday ever with the hope of many, many more to come. I am also hoping our girl stays out of trouble while she’s on holiday this weekend … well, maybe she can get into a little trouble ;)
