I love both of these women! Recently Jane Lynch (or was it Ellen Degeneres?) joked about the fact that people get the two of them confused, saying, “No, I’m the other one,” since they are both the most well known (and loved) lesbians in show business. Today, Jane Lynch was a guest on the Ellen Degeneres Show and she talked about how Ellen had inspired her to come out of the closet.

“I used to lay in bed and go, ‘How will I come out or will I come out?” She added, “You were at the height of your fame and you came out. And that just blazed a trail for me. It really did. It made it so much easier for me what you did.”

Kelly Rowland unveiled her new music video for “Rose Colored Glasses” today on Vevo. The video was shot in 3D (groan, so over 3D) and directed by fashion photographer Rankin whose previous credits include Kelis (Acapella) and Nelly Furtado (Say It Right). It features Kelly dealing with the pain of being a bad relationship, while set to vivid colors and stunning shots of Miss Rowland in the midst of flowing colorful streamers. You go girrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl.

The Ester Dean-penned track is Rowland’s third attempt at trying to get a successful lead single from her upcoming third album. The long-awaited album is still untitled and without a release date. Hopefully that track will give Kelly some much needed buzz. Though the song is a bit more mellow than “Commander“, critics have responded well to it due to the emotion behind the lyrics and Kelly’s vocals.

“The inspiration behind the song is just my real life,… It’s just so nice to express that emotion and get it all out there because everyone out there, I’m sure you guys can relate to the pain of feeling like a complete idiot when everybody’s laughing at you when you’re getting played by the person in your life at the time. And you just need to take off your rose colored glasses.”

Gossip Girl: Robyn Heads To The Upper East Side

In: Donovan, Music

Last year Lady Gaga performed “Bad Romance” for the Upper East Siders of “Gossip Girl“, this year another hot solo singer is dropping by. Site favorite, Robyn, is making a surprise visit for Blair Waldorf’s upcoming birthday bash. Lucky girl. How do I get Robyn to show up at my next birthday celebration?

The Swedish superstar tweeted a photo from set yesterday. Hopefully her performance on the hit show will be what she needs to break into the US mainstream market. A huge favorite amongst the gays and hipsters, Robyn is nowhere near the sensation she is in her native Sweden. C’mon America, show her some love. At the very least, maybe this guest spot will promote her from commercial break segue act to full-fledged performer at next year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Many of Robyn’s fans took to the web to express their disappointment that her “Dancing On My Own” performance was disrupted for a Verizon commercial.

Models: The Carlson Twins

In: Fashion, Redd

I remember at the height of the Carlson Twin’s popularity was also the almost never ending demand of Abercrombie & Fitch’s clothing in the gay scene. Every gay and their mothers were decked out in full A&F attire. I’ve always wondered what the twins were up to today post Abercrombie. I came across a few recent photos of the now 31 year old twins from our friends over at YVY Mag and just like a fine wine… they’ve only gotten even better with age. These photos were shot by New York-based renowned photographer Richard Phibbs. I was and still am a huge fan of the twins and I’m glad they’re back!

Check out the full uncensored pics (no junk, just trunk) on the next part of the post plus some soccer themed photos of the twins.

Exclusive Interview: Brandon R. Dwyer

In: Interviews, Patrick

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to interview Brandon R. Dwyer on the set of Elise Estrada‘s new music video, “You’re So Hollywood”. You first met the talented designer Season 2 of Project Runway Canada, after he was first recognized on a grand scale at his graduation presentation of his designs at the Fanshawe College’s 2007 graduate presentation at Toronto Fashion Week. I unfortunately didn’t catch the season on Project Runway, but cast member Donovan did, and he had this to say about Dwyer’s stint on the reality show:

Brandon Dwyer’s run on Project Runway Canada’s second season was a brief but memorable one. He was one of my early favorites, and I expected him to go further than he did. Unfortunately for him, his lack of knowledge for legendary fashion house, YSL, and other couture fashion giants did him in. It’s too bad, he had some really mad skills and his bitchy catty confessionals were hilarious. I’m sure if he was around longer, we would’ve heard more epic sound bites.

Hope you enjoyed yesterday’s premier edition of “TV BackTalk“. I’m back today with a couple of quick reviews on two shows I watched last night. After working all day and playing tennis in the evening, I was looking forward to leaning back and watching both these shows while having some tasty din-din. I love fashion and teen angst. What a perfect night.

FASHION’S NIGHT OUT

CBS’ primetime special took viewers behind the scenes of the world’s largest celebration of fashion. The show consisted of footage from the actual event which took place Friday September 10th, behind the scenes footage and designer spotlights. The event was the brainchild of Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour to celebrate fashion and boost the sagging retail industry affected by the global recession. The initiative was such a huge hit last year, it was a no-brainer it’d be back for a second round.

This year the event took place in more major cities around the world and was kicked off by the world’s largest public fashion show in NYC. Over 200 models strutted their stuff in front of Lincoln Center, the new home of New York Fashion Week. Neil Patrick Harris hosted the television special.

I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed the show. It made attempts to make fashion more accessible to the average joe, instead of just solely focusing on the glitz and glamor. The underlying message they were trying to convey was that fashion financially supports more than just designers and fashionistas, but various other industries, including electricians, delivery people, retail workers, carpenters, etc… The message got a bit heavy-handed at times, but I appreciated the effort.

SYTYCDC Season 3: Top 16 Eliminations

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Welcome back. Its results time Canada so lets see who you voted (or you didn’t vote for) into the Bottom 3 couples this week. The show begins with an AMAZING group routine. One of the best ones I have seen in a long time. The choreographer is Sergio Trujillo who has choreographed the Broadway shows Jersey Boys and Memphis. I have also had the opportunity to work with Sergio on the show Triple Sensation on CBC. He’s brilliant. The routine is performed to Sing, Sing, Sing. I thought this piece showcased the talents of the Top 16 the best out of the routines this season. The acrobatics were great but what won me over was the levels of choreography used throughout the piece. The costumes were brilliant and complimented the twisted music style perfectly. Sebastian had a great moment in the middle where he showed his insane double jointed arms. Overall, great piece and I know my friend Colby, the Broadway whore, will love it.

See who goes home after the jump…

Journalist and award-winning theater artist, Rob Salerno, is bringing his hilarious one-man comedy “Fucking Stephen Harper” to the Vancouver Fringe Festival. The irreverent comedy covers Salerno’s work covering the 2008 federal election for Xtra but instead getting arrested for sexually assaulting the Prime Minister. Really though, it’s about the struggle for gay rights in Canada and the battles we’re still fighting.

Here’s the official description for his show:

We’ve all heard the story of how journalist Rob Salerno sexually assaulted Prime Minister Stephen Harper during the last election. Now come hear Salerno’s side of the story at this signing of his new tell-all memoir, FUCKING STEPHEN HARPER: How I Sexually Assaulted the 22nd Prime Minister of Canada and Saved Democracy.

Maclean’s called his show “An hilarious and powerful take on Canadian politics, the media, and what Stephen Harper’s balls feel like.” If you don’t have any plans this weekend, check it out at this year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival.
