“Ain’t no party like an S Club (coming out) party, cuz and S Club Party don’t stop…” Actor and former member of the blast from the past teen pop sensation (S Club, Formerly S Club 7), Jon Lee shows his colours has come out of the closet to reveal his sexuality in an interview with GT magazine. Looking back, it’s really no surprise (sort of like the non-shocker that was Lance Bass from N’Sync). That being said, it’s always good when public figures speak out about their sexuality because it’s going to make it that much easier for a young teenager to feel comfortable in their own skin and come out when they are ready as well.
S Club is gonna “Bring It All Back” and is planning an appearance in the UK at Doncaster Gay Pride this month. The other members include Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O’Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens.
Below is some of what is discussed in the GT magazine interview with Lee:
On Speculation He Was Gay:
“If someone had said ’are you gay?’ I would have said yes, but no-one ever did. I’ve never felt the need to leap out of the closet singing and dancing about it. I’ve always known I was gay, from a very young age. I came out to my friends and my family at a very young age, so for me it’s always been my life and it’s never needed to be a huge change that I’ve had to tell everyone about.”
How Do You Know this is going to be a good movie? Just look at the cast: Reese Witherspoon (Walk The Line), Paul Rudd (Dinner For Schmucks), and Owen Wilson (Little Fockers) continue their domination of the movie scene in this romantic comedy set for a December release.
The Plot: “Feeling a bit past her prime at 27, former athlete Lisa Jorgenson (Reese Witherspoon) finds herself in the middle of a love triangle, as a corporate guy in crisis (Paul Rudd) competes with Lisa’s current, baseball-playing beau (Owen Wilson).”
The “How Do You Know” part is the question she asks herself – How do you know when you’re in love? What’s your answer to that question?
The film is written and directed by James L. Brooks (The Simpsons Movie, As Good As It Gets) and also stars Jack Nicholson in a supporting role.
Exfoliate. Scrub. Whatever you wanna call it. You can physically exfoliate by a using a simple over the counter product, but when should you use it and why?
A scrub should be used 2-3 times a week, before you shave. A scrub will remove dead skin cell and excess oil, unclog pores, and loosen the beard. This plays a key role in preventing in grown hairs and irritation, and will allow you to obtain a closer shave. The scrub can replace the cleanser (or “face wash”) when it is used.
Why am I bringing this up? Well, every now and I hear that people are using a scrub after they shave. Yikes! Your skin is already trying to deal with the fact that you took a blade to it, so attacking your skin after you shave is a bad idea. It will lead to irritation, razor burn, and other unwelcome surprises. The idea is to do it before you shave so that you can prepare your skin for an irritation free shave and get the closest shave possible.
Yesterday, I highlighted the laugh-inducing ladies of the Best Supporting Actress, Comedy Series category. Today, it’s all about the men. Just like the women, “Glee“, “Modern Family” and “Two and a Half Men” are all well represented in this category. The only anomaly is the acting nod for “How I Met Your Mother“.
Show: How I Met Your Mother
Role: Barry Stinson
Episode Submitted: Girls vs. Suits
The soon-to-be father of twins, NPH scores his fourth straight nomination for his womanizing character, Barry Stinson. Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, Harris hasn’t walked away with the statue as of yet, though he has hosted the awards ceremony. Could this year finally be the year he’s victorious. He has a good shot, especially if the “Modern Family” boys cancel each other out.
The reality TV stars certainly set tongues wagging with their intimate dinner over the weekend. Recently divorced cheater Jesse James joined “LA Ink” star, Kat Von D for some shrimp, filet, asparagus and water at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. The two reportedly sat cozily with each other, while they dined at N9NE. During dinner, they reportedly began to hold hands and continued to do so as they left dinner.
This is the first woman, James has been romantically linked to since his well-documented cheating on Sandra Bullock with Bombshell McGee. Obviously, the two can date whomever they want, but hopefully Von D isn’t thinking of entering a LTR (long-term relationship) with Jesse. Like Rachel’s mom on Friends said, “once a cheater, always a cheater”.
Having been to Spain for the past 3 consecutive years, I’ve noticed that Spanish cuisine was nothing to write home about. Well at least for us North Americans because most of their diet if not seafood is primarily cured meats & bread. How people stay trim in this country is beyond me… well maybe because it’s so hot and you just sweat the calories off. It was 37c in Madrid and about 27c in Barcelona and I was sweating buckets! Everywhere you turn they sold bocadillos, which is a sandwich that is usually rubbed with tomatoes and stuffed with thin slices of cured meats like jamon serrano, chorizo, salami or jamon york. Not a site of green in any of these sandwiches not even condiments like mayo or mustard. Mind you, I did like the chorizo but after 2 weeks you quickly tire of the bocadillos. I’m allergic to shellfish so that rules out paella.
Many non-Spaniards view paella as Spain’s national dish, but most Spaniards consider it to be a regional Valencian dish. Valencians, in turn, regard paella as one of their identifying symbols.
WTF. Today, the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals court, consisting of a three judge panel, ruled that California’s ban on gay marriage (which was set to be lifted later this week) will remain in place (reversing the previous judges order) until judges consider whether it is constitutional. Previously, U.S. District Judge Vaught Walker ruled that Prop 8 was in fact unconstitutional discrimination, and had ordered it be lifted on this coming Wednesday, Aug. 18th. Now a bunch of weddings scheduled for Wednesday, many of which were happening at 5:00pm when the ban was supposed to be lifted, are going to have to wait until this BS gets cleared up again.
According to the Associated Press, “Supporters argued the ban was necessary to safeguard the traditional understanding of marriage and to encourage responsible childbearing. Opponents said that tradition or fears of harm to heterosexual unions were legally insufficient grounds to discriminate against gay couples.”
Right now in the United States, you can still only legally get married in Massachusetts, Iowa, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire and Washington, D.C.
The 2010 Emmys are less than two weeks away, and I thought it’d be the perfect time to start highlighting some of the big categories. To start off the countdown to the 62nd Primetime Emmys, I’m going to start with some of the funniest ladies on television. The Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series nominees include a few veterans, newcomers and first-time nominees.
Role: Sue Sylvester
Episode Submitted: “The Power of Madonna”
The “Vogue” video alone probably cemented her nomination. She’s got all the momentum going to the awards ceremony. She’s definitely the one to beat.
