The ironically named GLAAD is once again pissed off about something, this time Kirk Cameron and the things he said on CNN during an interview with Piers Morgan. I’m assuming it was the part where he implied homosexuality might destroy civilization.
“I think that it’s unnatural,” Cameron (said). “I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Into the fires with you, Zachary Quinto! You’re a barbarian! Why can’t you be civilized, like Torquemada!
“I believe marriage was defined by God. Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the Garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. And I don’t think anyone else should either. So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don’t.”
I really wanted Cameron to sound like an asshole because I personally think religious people are ridiculous, but the fact is Morgan asked him his opinion (*) and he gave it. And that’s fine. He should be allowed to think whatever he wants. My problem is that his opinion is being made into law, and his opinion keeps gay people from having equal rights. I don’t even give a shit about gay people, because I’m not gay and I only care about about me, but every argument against gay marriage always comes down to, “well God said so”, and I don’t see why others should be forced to obey rules given to Kirk Cameron by the voices in his head. If kneeling in a pew and praying to a crucifix gives him comfort and peace, good for him, I’m jealous, but that’s between him and his magic furniture. Leave me out of it.
(*) and actually had to ask him several times: longer video here, transcript here.
Hey, so, sorry the updates have been so slow lately, today especially. I’ve had a migraine all day and I’m pretty sure I’m about to literally die, but more than that, the page just feels stagnant lately. I need to change some things, so Tyler can be more than it is now. I’ve been trying to get some stuff done for a while, and I still need to figure a few things out, but hopefully that can start now. Or Monday at least.
The NY Daily News says that Minka Kelly and Wilmer Valderamma were seemingly together Saturday night at Beachers Madhouse in Hollywood, with a friend of his adding that the two are “getting to know each other”. Which doesn’t even sound ridiculous now that Elisabetta Canalis and Steve-O are dating. Also Kate Upton is dating Michael Cera now, and Megan Fox is fucking Luis Guzman on the side. Probably.
The Today show aired their complete Lindsay Lohan interview today, and of course she talked about how she’s really really changed this time, and to prove that she’s really really changed this time, she spoke in tired cliches and told a bunch of lies. Yaay, I’m convinced!
“I really want to focus on my work right now, I really do, and I think that’s the first time in my life I’ve ever said that, so that’s a big deal for me.”
Actually she’s said that same thing over and over for at least 5 years. Then they end the interview talking about her getting cast as Elizabeth Taylor in a movie on Lifetime, and that’s not even true. TMZ said it was true last week, and Access Hollywood and others ran the same story, but it’s not. The New York Post was the only one who actually asked Lifetime about that, and they said
“We don’t have any news to confirm at this time.”
And that was it. And there’s no mention of her actually getting the role in Variety or the Hollywood Reporter or Deadline. Probably because it’s a terrible idea. I don’t mean to nit-pick but Elizabeth Taylor wasn’t really known for her raspy voice and freckles. She was fantastically beautiful, whereas Lindsay Lohan has fucked her looks up so bad you couldn’t even hire her for a movie about Lindsay Lohan.
The paparazzi caught Katy Perry leaving her hotel in Paris today, and she ruined a perfectly good outfit by wearing that top over her see thru dress. What is she, a banker? Stop being so stuck up and let me see your tits, Katy. You’re gonna make the French think we’re uptight and uncool.
The super under rated Freid Pinto is in the new issue of Esquire, and she looks fantastic, but of course all Esquire ever puts online is lo-res versions of their pictures. Because why put a hi-res picture on their website? This internet thing is probably just a fad, but magazines are here to stay. Why just this morning I rode my penny farthing to the general store and bought one warning me about opium dens and Chinamen.
Target has been forced to pull this greeting card (full size picture here) which is dumb because they started carrying it long before Whitney Houston she died, and especially because it’s even more poignant advice now. She was a fuck-up who made terrible choices. Now she’s dead. An even bigger mystery is what possible occasion would this card be appropriate for? “Hey, hi, Merry Christmas. Hope your new boyfriend doesn’t drown you in a tub.”
The Today show had a preview of the Lindsay Lohan interview that will air tomorrow, and in keeping with the tradition of Lohan women, Lindsay will apparently just tell a bunch of lies the whole time.
For example, when Matt Lauer asked if she can go to parties or clubs now without the temptation to drink or get high, she said:
“I don’t. I mean, I probably could, but that’s not my thing anymore. I went out actually a few months ago with a friend and I was so uncomfortable. Not because I felt tempted. Just because it was just the same thing that it always was before. It just wasn’t fun for me. I have become more of a home body and I like it.”
