Admittedly, I’m a sucker for year-end lists and just can’t enough of them. So imagine my joy this morning when I learned Out magazine released their Out 100 list. I was like a gay kid in a gay candy store. Oh happy day.

The publication honors the most compelling lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from all walks of life including celebrities, writers, politicians, artists, entrepreneurs and so forth. To celebrate this annual issue, the publication bestowed the honor of gracing the cover to four individuals- Jane Lynch (The Entertainer), Boy George (The Legend), Sharon Needles (The Stylemaker) and Andrew Rannells (The Ingenue). All four covers are fantastic and I can’t decide which one is the best.

A few others that made that made the OUT 100 list include Isis King (ANTM trans model), Michael Urie (Partners), Mika (singer), Elton John & his hubby David Furnish, Patrick Abner & Thomas Roberts (HIV community liaison and MSNBC anchor, newlyweds) and Omar Sharif Jr. (advocate). I also wanted to mention (thank and blame) entrepreneurs Jason Goldberg & Bradford Shellhammer for FAB.com. You don’t even want to know how much I spend over there ;) If you have time, I definitely recommend heading over to OUT.com to check out the pics of each 100 honorees and the story behind them. It’s inspiring and educational. Check out the other covers below.

While Ben Affleck, Channing Tatum and Rihanna each have their own cover for GQ’s Men of the Year annual issue here in North America, Chris Hemsworth stands alone down under and is bestowed with “Man of the Year” accolades. The 29-year-old Aussie native looks dapper on GQ Australia’s cover snapped by photographer Simon Emmett. Inside the issue, the Thor actor talks about his Star Wars obsession, his “overnight” success, and growing up in Australia. Check out a few photos and quotes below. At the end of the post, I also list other Aussie personalities honored in the issue.

On Growing Up Aussie

“It was a different world. There were crocodiles and buffalo. We were isolated, one of two white families. We saw a lot of corroborees and tribal dancing. I have a wider understanding for the Aboriginal situation because of my time there. It’s an insight into that world that most people don’t get.”

It’s hard to compete with a nearly naked Rihanna, but somehow Channing Tatum and Ben Affleck still managed to score their own respective covers for GQ’s annual Men of the Year issue. Theirs just happened to hit the internet the day after the “We Found Love” singer’s cover went viral. The people over at GQ aren’t dummies. They knew RiRi’s would have social media buzzing.

Tatum, the publication’s Movie Star of the Year, fixes his tie on the cover while giving his signature smirk. Given the actor propelled The Vow, Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street over the 100 million mark at the box office, he certainly deserves the title. Word on the street is that the 32-year-old is the frontrunner to take People’s Sexiest Man Alive honors this year. Must be nice to be Channing in 2012.

Meanwhile, Affleck earns Filmmaker of the Year honors from GQ for his work on Argo which is receiving major Oscar buzz. Not too shabby for the guy who gave the world Gigli, Surviving Christmas, Forces of Nature and so on. Ben is certainly having a banner year. He’s also winning our Who’d You Rather poll against his bromance Matt Damon. Check out his cover below.

Keira Knightley & Rihanna Go Naked For December Covers

In: Donovan, Music

Maybe Daniel Craig saw a sneak peek at GQ’s December issue and that’s why he thought Rihanna would make a better Bond Girl than Beyonce. Someone’s obviously thinking with his other ‘head’ ;) Sex sells and that’s what GQ and Allure magazine are banking on with their nearly-nude December 2012 issues with Rihanna and Keira Knightley respectively.

First up is RiRi. The 24-year-old was chosen as the sole female for the publication’s annual Men of the Year issue. Wearing just a cropped leather jacket covering her boobs and arms strategically hiding her “ooh na na”, RiRi oozes sex from every pore. The “Diamonds” singer just announced the the cities for her 777 Tour, which kicks off this Wednesday in Mexico City and ends in New York City on November 20. I’m so jealous I won’t be on the party jet :(

“We are turning this jumbo jet into our tour bus. We’re practically living on this thing for a week: sleeping, partying, all together. Me, my fans, the press…it’s going to be a wild ride. I wanted it to be a rock n’ roll adventure, and I think when it’s over it will be the coolest thing I’ve ever done. I’m that excited about it.” – Rihanna

Simon Cowell isn’t the only one making bucket loads of money pimping out One Direction. Apparently, so are magazines. In the past few weeks, the laddies have popped up on several publications (British Vogue, Fabulous, Wonderland) with their adorable little mugs and stylish wardrobe. With their sophomore album hitting the streets next week, it only makes sense they go on an aggressive marketing push. Prep yourself for a 1D onslaught.

The latest glossy to score Liam, Harry, Zayn, Louis and Niall for a photo shoot is Teen Vogue. Photographed by Boo George, the boy band looks as dapper as ever. Is it sad to say that I want a few of their pieces? I’m so glad boy bands have evolved from the NKOTB, BSB and ‘N Sync days where dressing in identical tacky stage clothes was the norm. Like their Fabulous gig, each member of the British group has their own cover, complete with an individual tagline. Try to guess which goes with each guy.

  • “We’re Not Too Clean-Cut”
  • “I Don’t Really Have A Backup Plan”
  • “We Are Often A Little Bit Mischievous”
  • “I’m Quite Old-Fashioned”
  • “We’re Normal Teenagers”

Robert Pattinson is certainly trying to become the fashion industry’s next ‘it’ thing, isn’t he? Just last week, the 26-year-old actor landed a lucrative endorsement deal for Dior’s men fragrance. Now, he’s popping up in a high fashion editorial photographed by Caitlin Cronenberg for L’oumo Vogue’s November issue. Coincidentally enough, Caitlin is the daughter of David Cronenberg who directed Robert in Cosmopolis, released earlier this year.

I’ve made it known here that I’m not Pattinson’s hugest fan, but I’m loving the futuristic couture feel of the shoot. Dressed in leather studded trenchcoats, bold accessories and some Adam Lambert-like “guy”-liner, Robert looks like the love child of Keanu Reeve’s Neo and Mel Gibson’s Mad Max. His signature messy locks really work with the fashion narrative. It’s great to see the Brit show an edgier side. Check out the photos below.

Industry insiders predicted it and now it’s official. Taylor Swift’s new album Red sold over one million copies during its first week- 1.21 million copies to be exact. That’s the biggest weekly total in a decade. Looks like all that hard work promoting it paid off. Everywhere you turned last week, the 22-year-old singer was there. Last week alone, Swift was on ABC’s Good Morning America, The View, 20/20 and Katie, CBS’ The Late Show With David Letterman and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

With this latest accomplishment, Taylor becomes the first woman in chart history to have two albums sell over one million copies in their debut week. The only other artists to have ever achieved this feat are The Backstreet Boys (Millenium and Black and Blue), ‘N Sync (No Strings Attached and Celebrity) and Eminem (The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show).

Red is only the 18th album to move a million units in a single week since SoundScan started tracking in 1991. Swift is now second only to Britney Spears who had a bigger week, when Oops! . . . I Did It Again sold 1.319 million in its debut in 2000. Overall, Red is the eighth largest debut in modern chart history. Taylor’s accomplishment is even more impressive given today’s music industry climate and the fact she didn’t have to heavily discount her album like Lady Gaga did with Born This Way which sold some units for 99 cents.

Back in 2000, Britney Spears sang a song about a girl named “Lucky“. Remember that ditty? Twelve years later, the 30-year-old singer is gracing the cover of Lucky magazine. Her cover leaves me asking one huge question. Why in the world is she wearing a wig? At least that’s what it looks like? Did Miss Spears shave her head, oops one more time? The hairline looks awkward, especially in the pictures inside the December 2012 issue. I’m sure Team Xtina will be proclaiming the “Genie In A Bottle” singer’s Lucky October 2012 cover is better. Check out the pictures below along with a few quotes from her interview.

On Her Son’s Thoughts Regarding Her Career

“They’re in the middle right now of trying to figure it out. They try to figure out where I go when I go to film X Factor. They’re like, ‘Mommy’s going off to be a superhero.’ and then I get back, and they just see me as Mommy. And then when I’m back working on the show, they say, ‘Oh, Mommy’s a superhero again!’”
