For the honor of Grayskull. This is the best thing Funny or Die has done in ages (save for those hilarious Gay of Thrones recaps). For their latest, they’ve tapped Kylie Minogue to star in a live-action reboot of the classic cartoon, She-Ra: Princess of Power. The reboot is even rebootier. At least that’s what the narrator claims. I know it’s only a joke but truth be told, this faux NBC show looks better than 80% of the shows currently airing on the peacock network.
Stepping into She-Ra’s shoes isn’t much of a stretch for the Aussie popstar. After all, she’s worn a similar headress during her Aphrodite days. Watch her as she battles Skelly aka Skeletor, teams up with her male counterpart, He-Man, and discover that she’s with child. You’ll never guess who her baby daddy is. That’s not even the biggest reveal. Who knew her last name was Weintraub? Check out the clip below.
During last night’s GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco, Adam Lambert was honored with the organization’s prestigious Davidson/Valentini Award. An award presented to an out LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality for the LGBT community. The American Idol runner-up became the first out LGBT artist to reach number one on the Billboard 200 with the release of his 2012 album Trespassing. Mel B was on hand to present the award to Glambert.
The 31-year-old also picked up another award during the event. He tied with Frank Ocean in the category of Outstanding Musical Artist category. Other honorees include Archie Comics‘ Kevin Keller and the San Francisco Giants. The baseball team is the first professional sports organization honored by GLAAD. They were the first ever professional sports team to host an HIV/AIDS benefit game in 1994 and first major league sports team to record a video for the It Gets Better project.
Joining in on the festivities were Jinkx Monsoon (RuPaul’s Drag Race); Rex Lee (Suburgatory); Jaymes Vaughn, James Davis (The Amazing Race); Kyle Richards (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills); Tamala Jones (Castle); Guillermo Diaz (Scandal) and Jessica Clark (True Blood) to name a few. Check out Adam’s speech below along with the rest of the winners.
Damn you Solange Knowles. How dare you tease me with only a mini music video for “Locked In Closets.” The track (and me) deserve so much more. It’s my favorite cut from her EP True which she released last year.
In conjunction with Absolut Tune and Refinery29, the 26-year-old neo-soul singer shows off her hipster cred as she takes us on a colorful journey in her South Brooklyn hood. From flower shopping, to playing around with some candy-colored balloons to posing in front of the famed bubblegum pink brownstone in Park Slope, Solange shows why she’s the hipper and funkier Knowles sister. Check out the too-short colorful visual directed by Alan del Rio Ortiz below.
RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Jinkx Monsoon graces the cover of the latest issue of Next Magazine. The Season 5 winner, along with her Final 3 sisters sit down with the publication to talk about their experience on the Logo show. Check out a few excerpts from their chat.
Jinkx Monsoon on the filming three separate endings: “It’s at least less bonkers now that Ru tweeted about [shooting three finales] and we don’t have to keep it a secret. It makes it a photo finish and nail-bitingly awesome.”
Alaska Thunderfvck on Alyssa and Coco’s drama: “The thing about [Alyssa and Coco’s] drama w as they were smart about it. They got there and were like, ‘we have drama but we’ll talk about it later.’ You know you’re going to get a few episodes out of your storyline that way!”
Roxxxy Andrews on diversity among the winners: “It’s time to crown a plus-size girl, and no Latino has ever won.”
In other Jinkx Monsoon-related news, the Pacific Northwest queen gets a remix treatment like her RPDR Season 5 castmate Alyssa Edwards. Jinkx delivers a spoken-word monologue in the character of Little Edie, whom Drag Race viewers will remember from the Snatch Game episode, set to the tune of Two Dudes In Love’s ambient chill trans beat. I prefer Alyssa’s remixed track better, but Jinkx’s “Schizophrenic” is perfect to play in the background at your next gathering. Check it out below.
Despite a stellar opening, The Great Gatsby had to settle for second place at the box office this weekend. The glitzy adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel opened with an impressive $51.2 million. The number far exceeded industry expectations. It’ll be interesting to see how the film holds up in the coming weeks given its middling reviews and “B” CinemaScore grade.
The Leonardo Dicaprio flick is the third best opening for a film not to land at No. 1. In 2004, The Day After Tomorrow debuted with $68.7 million but couldn’t overtake Shrek 2. In 2009, Sherlock Holmes started with $62.3 million but Avatar still reigned supreme. In The Great Gatsby’s case, Iron Man 3 proved to be insurmountable. In its second frame, the Robert Downey Jr. film dropped 58% for a powerful $72.5 million take, bringing its total to $284.9 million after just 10 days.
Also opening this week with only a fraction of Gatsby’s numbers was Peeples. The Tyler Perry produced movie starring Kerry Washington and Craig Robinson raked in an embarrassing $4.9 million. Audiences also issued the film an unimpressive “B-” CinemaScore grade. I highly doubt it’ll recoup its reported $15 million budget. Oh well, at least Washington still has Scandal. The ABC show earned a third season after scoring its highest ratings ever this past Thursday. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.
I wonder if deciding on “Young & Beautiful” as the title for her contribution to The Great Gatsby soundtrack was meant to be autobiographical because it describes her perfectly. The 26-year-old is pure eleganza on the cover of Fashion magazine. Donning her signature red lipstick, Lana Del Rey gives off a slight Spanish vibe with her spread for the Canadian publication. In the accompanying interview, she talks about which women she admires, the early Oscar buzz for her new song and why she thinks she’s in the same boat as Lindsay Lohan. Check out photos snapped by Mark Williams and Sara Kirakawa below.
“Feeling like you’re respected among the people who do the same thing you do is incredible and necessary. I don’t believe in the school of hard knocks, although I’ve had them. All that stuff about whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger is so not true. Do you know what makes you stronger? When people treat you and your art with dignity.”
In honor of Mother’s Day, I decided to rotate this post originally published a few years ago. Donovan and myself ranked our favorite all-time television moms. Let’s face it: at one point growing up, we’ve watched a few sitcoms and thought it’d be cool to have one of those TV moms as our own, especially when we were fighting with our real ones ;)
10. Sandy Hogan (Sandy Duncan) The Hogan Family (1986-1991)
Played by Sandy Duncan, she was the aunt that came in to effectively become the surrogate mom of the family after their mother, Valerie Harper, was killed off in the second season. She had a lot to deal with playing the role of the “mother” and it was a very interesting concept for that time, since it was not the conventional perfect family. Oh, do you remember that Jason Bateman was in this show? Here’s a link to the show’s intro to refresh your memory.
10. Elyse Keaton (Meredith Baxter) Family Ties (1982-1989)
There are three different reasons why Elyse Keaton made the list.
Tonight, Jeff Probst reveals the winner of Survivor Caramoan: Fans vs Favorites II. I can’t believe he’s about to do this for the 26th time. The season started out slow, but is one of the more memorable iterations to date. With Brandon Hantz’s epic meltdown, Malcolm Freberg’s insane immunity idol stunt at tribal council and Brenda’s heartwrenching blindside, this season had it all. I thought it was a perfect time to rotate this post and squeeze in this season’s hottie, Eddie Fox, on the list. See where he falls in line.
While the purpose of the game is to Outwit, Outlast and Outplay everyone, there is a far greater prize to be won. Who’s the hottest Survivor guy ever? Since the pool of male hotness was so abundant, I had to split up my list- those who made the jury and those who didn’t. If you’re a regular reader of Homorazzi.com, you might’ve already read my The 10 Hottest Survivor Guys NOT To Make The Jury post, if not, check it out now.
It’s always interesting to see which of the guys end up being my Survivor Man Crush of the season. Sometimes, the ones I find hottest at the beginning, I lose interest in. While the ones who I’m not attracted too initially, only get sexier as each episode airs. Some guys just look hotter with a bit of scruff, more tanned and emaciated. I know you agree with me. The list hasn’t been updated with anyone from the current season…yet. So without further ado, let the countdown begin.
