Okay people, it’s finally coming to a close. If you’re like me, after last season, you’re might not be up for one more, but trust me – after you see the trailer for the final season, you’ll change your mind. There seems to be less B.S., more aspects of their real lives that we see in the tabloids. It’s not over ’til it’s over…
It’s been a year since tragedy hit our community with the gay bashing of Ritchie Dowrie. At that time, there had been several gay bashings and it took Ritchie Dowrie’s gay bashing to really wake up the Vancouver gay community to stand up. It was Enough.
On April 5th, 2009 the Enough! Rally for Ritchie Dowrey took place as thousands of people took a stand against these terrible hate crimes. I stumbled upon the video I put together last year of the march, and found myself fighting back tears. It just reminded me how thankful I am to live in this community and to live in Canada. It was also a reminder to me about why we have pride parades. Why community is so important to us. Why we have to stick together. Why we have to continue to fight for our rights and support those elsewhere that don’t have it as good as we do.
The video wasn’t done in the usual HD quality video that we do now, but it’s powerful nonetheless.
Two things I feel like I slash we’ve been writing about lately have come together. The new online phenomenon ChatRoulette.com meets Lady Gaga featuring Beyonce’s Telephone. Thus, I have to write about this. This goof dresses up as a really, really bad tranny mess of a Lady Gaga.
I swear, we’re almost ready for Gaga and Chat Roulette to have their own section on Homorazzi considering how much we talk about them.
The guy who made this video isn’t some amazing performer or anything. He’s just outrageous and goes out of control dancing to the song – what’s funny is everyone’s reactions.
Check it out.
Finally – it’s official. Ricky Martin has come out of the closet. Congratulations, Ricky! Now you can really live La Vida Loca…or whatever.
Check out his announcement below:
“A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life. From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth celebrating.
For many years, there has been only one place where I am in touch with my emotions fearlessly and that’s the stage. Being on stage fills my soul in many ways, almost completely. It’s my vice. The music, the lights and the roar of the audience are elements that make me feel capable of anything. This rush of adrenaline is incredibly addictive. I don’t ever want to stop feeling these emotions. But it is serenity that brings me to where I’m at right now. An amazing emotional place of comprehension, reflection and enlightenment. At this moment I’m feeling the same freedom I usually feel only on stage, without a doubt, I need to share.
Well make a video then! An Evening With Women is a fundraiser put on by the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and takes place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. It honours lesbians and bisexual women who have made significant contributions to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Last year, I had the priviledge of covering the red carpet for this event with Donovan, Brian, and Adam – and let me tell you, it was Amazeballs. We interviewed Glee’s Jane Lynch, as well as several other big names. Check out our experience here.
This year the event is hosted by Gina Gershon and you can expect special appearances from Renee Zellweger, Sarah Silverman, Linda Perry, and more.
The prize package includes tickets, backstage passes, a spa treatment, a night at the Beverly Hilton and $500 toward travel on American Airlines (so we want to reach folks all over the country). The event takes place Saturday, May 1st.
Check out the video below for more info on the competition. For more contest details click here:
Check out Homorazzi’s experience at the event last year.
Little Miss Trainwreck has a a new track, just released and she’s got more on the way. Her new song, “Stuck” just hit the net and it’s actually kinda catchy in a gay pop sorta way. I mean, I can’t deny that I did like Rumors & Bossy for a while (until I got sick of them). She’s not the most amazing singer, but I do like her raspy voice and dance tracks.
In other Lindsay news, she’s apparently heading down the same road as Britney when she essentially had a mental breakdown after drug abuse, etc. TMZ has reported that those close her to her are very worried and cops apparently were considering her for a 5150 evaluation. Some have said that if she doesn’t get help soon she is going to die. I think that’s sad. Hope she gets unStuck and gets help.
Well, on a lighter note – let me know what you think of her song.
I’m sure Jennifer Aniston doesn’t think it’s a stretch that Angelina is set to star as the “Mistress of all Evil in Tim Burton’s next flick, Maleficient. Similar to Tim Burton’s take on Alice in Wonderland, the mastermind will be shaking up the Disney story of Sleeping Beauty with this next project. In 1959′s “Sleeping Beauty,” Maleficent was portrayed as a green-skinned, sinister fairy who was the self-proclaimed the ‘Mistress Of All Evil.’ “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” The name Maleficent actually does means ‘evil doer.’ She can morph into various terrifying forms – like a fire breathing dragon. She’s the one who gets
Jennifer Aniston Princess Aurora to “prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel. She’s viewed as the darkest of all the Disney villains. Angelina can be dark – she used to carry a vile of Billy Bob Thornton’s blood around her neck. That’s dark.
Linda Woolverton will be writing the screenplay, while Tim Burton will be directing it. Can you imagine if they actually did get Jennifer Aniston to play Princess Aurora? That would be amazing, but it’d only happen if In Touch magazine was in charge of the film.
Last week my favorite couple (that was never going to make it to the end) Jeff & Jordon of Big Brother
were evicted from the house eliminated from the race at the 6th pitstop. The teams remaining are Team Detectives, Team Lesbos, Team Dad & Daughter, Team Cowboys, Team Cute Bros, Team Models.
The teams all leave together and fly from France to the beautiful Seychelles. To Mahe, Seychelles to be specific. They’ve got to race to the kiosk when they get of the plane and take a number. First three teams to get their numbers each get the first 3 helicopters to the Island of La Digue. Lucky for Team Dad & Daughter, Team Cute Bros, and Team Models, they are the first three teams. The rest of them have to leave an hour later.
As the first three teams fly there, it’s fitting that The Cute Bros with gay Jordan are followed by a rainbow. “We got a rainbow following us,” says Jordan. Meanwhile, as the models fly over, Caite says, “I just wanna get the mean lesbians out.” Sorry toots, I’m on Team Lesbos on this one. You’re just plain annoying. In fact, your BF Brent would probably sooner have you eliminated before them.
