Damien from ‘Mean Girls’ comes out, talks the canceled reunion  »  popbytes
So right now, TooFab is running a story about Daniel Franzese (Damien in Mean Girls) talking about having to hide his sexuality after playing a gay teen. Actually, you should check out his RuPaul Drives segment, because you can kinda see him talk about what he’s up to now, and he’s just so cute and bearish. Anyway, here’s Daniel coming out … “I’m happy to be free and honest with myself and my fans,” he tells TooFab of his decision to come out now, 10 years later. “It feels like a backpack full of bricks has ...

All T, All Shade: Drag My Wedding  »  popbytes
Quick word: Yes, I missed last week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. If you want my opinion on it, just imagine me cringing for twenty straight minutes. Anyway, here comes this week’s recap for ‘Drag My Wedding,’ which saw the queens turning grooms into brides for a mass wedding onstage. Which queens lived happily ever after, and which queens consciously uncoupled? Well … Adore Delano [Bottom 2] Look, we all knew Adore isn’t much of a sewer, which means the final laps of Drag Race were going to be a trial for her, but really? She doesn’t even know how ...

SCOTUS Upholds Michigan's Affirmative Action Ban 6-2, Sotomayor Vociferously Dissents  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
On Tuesday, the United States Supreme Court issued a curious 6-2 ruling upholding the constitutionality of a Michigan ballot measure which precludes the use of "race-based preferences" in public education. The majority opinion by Anthony Kennedy went out of its way to say that it was not ruling on the constitutionality of race-based affirmative action policies but on whether voters had the power to ban affirmative action policies.New York Times reports:Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s controlling opinion for three justices took pains to say that the decision was a modest one. “This case is not about how the ...

Jay Z and Beyoncé are bailing on Kimye’s wedding  »  popbytes
Remember all those stories about how Beyoncé has been absolutely dreading the idea of going to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s wedding because she can’t be around her for more than five seconds without getting a case of the douche chills? Well, according to The Daily Mail, she and hubby Jay Z decided to bail out on the whole big event because they don’t want to be on one of the Kardashians’ reality TV specials. Austin Powers: Goldmember? Sure, but NOT THIS. Jay Z and Beyonce have reportedly turned down an invite to Kim Kardashian ...

Meanwhile In Pennsylvania  »  Ron's Log
Pennsylvania's Attorney General has wisely refused to defend his state's ban on same-sex marriage, so the office of Governor Corbett (a Republican) took on that task. But the defense is no defense. The Governor's office has said they will call no expert witnesses and they will not dispute any of the specific harms caused to the plaintiffs by the marriage ban. Essentially, then, this would seem to be like the Oregon suit - defenseless. But it's got one advantage over Oregon because there is a nominal defendant. The defendant (the Commonwealth) agrees with the plaintiffs that there is ...

New Lytro  »  Ron's Log
Lytro introduced their light field camera in 2011. In a radical departure from all preceding photography, a light field camera is able to record all* the light rays, thereby allowing the viewer to choose and manipulate the depth of field later.    * But obviously it can't record more light rays than the capacity of its memory allows. Their first camera, while fully functional, was a bit of a novelty. Now they are coming back with their big gun: the Lytro Illum. Perhaps they drew the name "Illum" from "Illuminate," but I had to go look ...

India High Court To Reconsider Controversial Sodomy Ruling  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Good news! The High Court of India has announced that a 5-member panel will consider its problematic December 2013 ruling that upheld India's ban on sodomy, criminalizing the sexual behavior of literally more than a hundred million people in the world's most populous democracy. The original ruling included some shockingly homophobic language, and unfortunately the two judges that signed that decision will be participating in the re-hearing.Buzzfeed reports:This is LGBTI rights advocates last chance to toss out the decision, which was a harsh blow after a 12-year litigation process. In January, a two-judge panel (which ...

Lindsay Lohan denies drinking through an interview  »  popbytes
Don’t you just hate it when you have two conflicting stories and no real concrete evidence either way? Like this piece about Lindsay Lohan denying that she was drinking during an interview with Kode magazine. On one hand, we have Lindsay claiming the whole thing was conducted via email. On the other hand, she’s LiLo. Honestly, I’m kinda torn on this one. Via E! Online … “Lindsay never spoke to any journalist at Kode. The interview was completed via email,” Lohan’s rep exclusively told E! News Monday. “We have no comprehension on why a journalist ...

Terry Richardson: Accused of offering photo shoots for sex!  »  popbytes
Full disclosure: I never got why people were so in love with Terry Richardson. I mean yes, fabulous, your flashbulb is way too bright and you shoot almost exclusively against white backdrops. Congratulations on never painting I guess? Anyway, over the years the guy has developed a bit of a reputation for being … gropey. Recently, he was accused of offering a model a Vogue photo shoot if she slept with him, which in the age of insta-sharing everything, didn’t remain secret for very long. So now, Terry is denying the whole thing ever happened. Gawker ...

Jon Hamm called Justin Bieber a sh**head!  »  popbytes
Yes, we all know what the word in that title is (hint: it rhymes with “hithead”) but we can’t be putting swears all up in our post titles because we’re a good wholesome blog. And also we’re on Google news I think and they don’t take kindly to that. No ma’am. Anyway, Mad Men star Jon Hamm is on the latest cover of Men’s Fitness magazine, although he’s wearing a shirt for some reason. In the cover story, Jon talks about being in Hollywood and mentions the complete lack of boundaries or work ethic which ...

The RHOA ladies seem like rational individuals!  »  popbytes
Hold a gun to my head, I couldn’t tell you any of the names of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, other than NeNe Leakes. In fact, if you had just told me that the show was Nene Leakes interacting with four clone versions of herself, I’d not only believe you, I’d almost consider watching the show. Almost. Except that’s not the face, because two of them (I don’t know their names, so I’ll just call one Chun-Li and the other Cammy AKA Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore) got into a massive fight during their ...

Exclusive: Interview with Tove Lo  »  popbytes
Tove Lo has quickly become Sweden’s most exciting musical import since Robyn. Her brilliant debut EP, Truth Serum (iTunes), was released last month to rave reviews. A gut-wrenching record that chronicles the singer coping with the deterioration of a painful relationship, the EP calls to mind Jagged Little Pill – but with a sophisticated and contemporary electro pop makeover. Currently hitting the road on her first ever American tour, Tove chatted with me about her upcoming full length album, her refreshingly unfiltered lyrics, her thoughts on drugs and tattoos, and more.
