"What about my brain? What about my heart? What about my kidneys and my gallbladder?"

So, what the fuck happened to Jared Leto? Remember when he was all dreamy and broody with those pretty eyes on My So-Called Life? I do. I wasn't sure who I thought was cuter, him or Claire Danes. Yeah, it's not much of a contest these days. I mean, he's not the first actor to try his hand at rock stardom (hell, he's not even the only one to try with 30 in his band name). And he's not the first man to wear too much eyeliner (but Bob wore it well, dammit). He's not even the first guy to think he looks awesome with an emo haricut (with ridiculous results). So, why the concern? Because he used to look like this. Sigh.
p.s. Oh, I almost forgot to add that he thinks that "the blog is yesterday’s parachute pants. It’s here now but it’s gone tomorrow." Sure, buddy, but that frosty blue eyeshadow is clearly the wave of the future...

These are, hands down, three of the least attractive men in drag I've ever seen. John Travolta, David Spade and Christopher Walken get their girly on with tragic results for upcoming film roles. I believe the appropriate reaction here would be something along the lines of, "My eyes! My eyes!"

I have to tell you, I don’t give a crap about Clay Aiken. I’m not a fan of his music and I’m certainly not a fan of his new, ridiculous face scruff. What I do give a crap about is celebrities who dance around the gay question. Just have the balls to say either, “I’m gay!” or “I’m not gay!” Either shut the public out of your personal life entirely (which means no talking about your Baptist faith, no talking about your mom, no talking about your gawky childhood) or let us in all the way. Don’t give us this “What I do in my private life is nobody’s business anymore, period…at some point it becomes really rude” shit.

Rosie O’Donnell thinks Oprah has a touch of the gay. Today on “The View,” Rosie said that the relationship between the Queen of Talk and business partner/best galpal/hetero lifemate Gayle King pings her gaydar. She also refuted Oprah’s claims that just because they aren’t having sex, they aren’t gay.
“They are always together, but you know they are not lovers. But I think that is very typical of gay relationships …You know, two women get together and after year two all they do is spoon. You now what I’m saying. She’s like, ‘Well we’re not having sex. We’re not gay.’ Well, you might be a little bit gay, you’re just not doing it ... Everyone can be a tiny bit gay.”
So, essentially, Ro thinks O has a case of the lesbian bed death. I can see it now, "Tomorrow on Oprah, 10 ways to stop spooning and start screwing!"
"What do you say (to that question)? ... It's like when I was 8. I remember something would get broken in the house, and Mom and Dad would call me in and say, 'Did you do this?' Well, it didn't matter what I said. The only thing they would believe was yes. ... People are going to believe what they want."
OK, well this person is going to keep believing you're gay. Otherwise, why would you channel your inner k.d. lang with that new look?

So, how is this for circular logic? "Hairspray" started as a indie cult film by John Waters starring gender-bending drag diva Divine as big mamma Edna Turnblad. It became a Tony-winning Broadway musical starring out actor Harvey Fierstein in the wig and house dress. And now the movie-turned musical is being remade into a mainstream movie starring non-gay (but much rumored about) star John Travolta. As is sadly often the case, the closer the project gets to Hollywood, the less overtly gay it gets. Plus, whoever decided the world wanted to see Travolta in drag should be fired. Seriously. That photo has put me right off lunch.

I'm going to start a new feature where I post a pretty picture of a pretty person for your weekend enjoyment each Friday to tide you over until regular posting recommences on Monday. I'll call it My Weekend Crush for, well, obvious reasons. First up, my first girl crush: Miss Jodie Foster. This is circa 1980, right around the time I started to immerse myself in her cinematic talents. Dig those bell bottoms, baby. And those shoes, yeah, those shoes scream of future lesbian tendencies. Happy weekend, all.
"Angie and I will consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able."Lord, they're beautiful and principled. They are perfect.
Soooo, does this mean all Asian women are now required to show up in public wearing pageboy caps, John Lennon glasses and black jackets, cause I never got that memo. Here are Sandra Oh (love her) and Yoko Ono (she's cool, too) pictured a day apart at separate events this week. They look like a long lost mother and daughter who have finally found each other and decided they wanted to share everything, including wardrobes, to make up for lost time. That or a May-December pair of lesbian lovers who, as inevitably happens, have started dressing alike.
Since I already love Mary-Louise Parker (Ruth!) and Elizabeth Perkins (uh, "Big!"), it only follows that I should love "Weeds." Now, here is another reason to love it. How funny is this scene between Perkins' mother character and her 13-year-old daughter after she catches her kissing another girl? So funny that I think I'm going to start using, "That is not where lesbianism is going..." as my personal catch phrase. That or "Those are not boobs." Enjoy.

So admittedly I have posted a lot about Jodie Foster on this blog. Like here. And here. And, yeah, here. And, sure, here. But, I must say I felt a little better about my posting/obsession with Ms. Foster today after the New York Times ran a glowing feature from the set of her new film, “The Brave One.” Come on, even I haven’t gushed that her “famous cheekbones gleam like hatchet blades.” The article gives the photos we’ve been seeing from the Brooklyn set some context. When I saw the above image, I immediately though, “Hey, that girl looks like Lisa Bonet.” And - what do you know - she is Zoe Kravitz, Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz’s 17-year-old daughter. Other interesting tidbits from the article include the fact that Jodie is a “serious NPR-head” and that the scene filmed with Zoe is in the backseat of a car could be misinterpreted as lovemaking and is “very maternal, very sensual.” Hello.
