Margaret Cho drops a new music album, titled American Myth, on April 29. It showcases her first efforts as a composer. With the assistance of her longtime collaborator Garrison Starr, they filled the album with anthems that are a “glamorous and glittering tribute to family, comedy, anger, fame, gayness, grief, fat pride, love, and hate.”

The lead cut, titled “Anna Nicole,” is you guessed it, all about Anna Nicole Smith. The 47-year-old comedian was friends with the late model. They even had an epic make out session on Smith’s 2002 Christmas special. Cho even references that spit-swapping moment on her tribute track.

“This is a wonderful collaboration with Garrison Starr and it’s a requiem for Anna Nicole Smith that is as beautiful and quirky as she was. It’s my version of Candle in the Wind, and about the archetype of someone who is too good for this world that exists in all of us.” – Margaret Cho

Check out the music video below directed by Bryan Mir. Cho navigates her way through a party filled with Anna Nicole impersonators. A little creepy to say the least 😉

After several guest host stints, Margaret Cho joins the Fashion Police panel on a more regular basis. E! announced the 47-year-old comedian will officially begin on January 11, 2016. She’ll join Giuliana Rancic, Brad Goreski and Melissa River to critique the Golden Globes red carpet fashions.

Cho’s addition finally ends a year-long talent shuffle which saw Kathy Griffin in and out within seven episodes and long-time panelist Kelly Osbourne leaving. Melissa who’s produced the show since the beginning stepped in front of the camera when Griffin left.

Personally, I love this. Every time Cho has appeared, I’ve laughed out loud without fail. She’s snarky without being mean-spirited. Do you agree? Excited Margaret is joining full-time? Sound off below.

Where The Bears Are Season 2 Trailer

In: Adam, Totally GAY!

When Donovan asked me to cover a new TV show, I assumed that HBO was releasing a new epic drama and I was just the nerd and telephile to cover it. NOPE! He recruited me for my insatiable appetite for all things big and beefy… and I ain’t talkin’ steak! Funnily enough, I’ve been toning and trimming down the past couple days for a big ol’ bear party in Vancouver and how kismet should it be that this little show falls into my lap. That said, I’m not EXACTLY hoping to reenact this puppy scene for scene. It’s a little more.. “sashay away” than I look for in my mustached men.

Still, you gotta love anything with Margaret Cho in it! And, the fact that she’s wearing a dominatrix leather onesie and waving around a vibrating dildo wand makes it that much better. The show looks … interesting? It’s definitely BEARS getting looked at here: big, barrel-chest boys men. None of the typical second generation fit bears, we’re talking large men in all their furred glory! While I never was fortunate enough to catch season one of Where the Bears Are, I can certainly see the attraction of watching a ton of handsome men going at it and bitching about each other the rest of the time- christ, it sounds like my Sundays in reverse 😉 Still, it won’t be for everyone, but niche markets are all the rage today!

For those who love stand-up comedy, you’re going to love this. From February 16 til the 26th, the Vancouver ComedyFest takes place and will undoubtedly have the entire city laughing in stitches. This year’s lineup boasts an AH-MAZING slew of international names from Carol Burnett, David Hasselhoff, Margaret Cho and the incomparable Betty White. I, personally can’t wait to see them all live, especially Miss Golden Girl herself.

We were able to get our hands on a few tickets and decided to share the wealth. Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be holding contests to give a pair of tickets to a couple of the shows. Spoiler alert. One of them will be for Betty White. Today, we have two tickets to Margaret Cho’s show at the Center for Performing Arts, Sunday February 19th.

Did you know that American teenagers spend 31 hours a week watching TV? But, that’s only the beginning. They also spend 17 hours a week listening to music, 3 hours a week watching movies, 4 hours a week reading magazines, and 10 hours a week online. All together, that’s 10 hours and 45 minutes a day of media consumption. Therefore, it’s no wonder that many blame the media for the effects of our society or therefore, how the media can alter opinions and change the way you think.

As the most persuasive and pervasive force of communication in our culture, media is educating yet another generation that a woman’s primary value lay in her youth, beauty and sexuality—and not in her capacity as a leader, making it difficult for women to obtain leadership positions and for girls to reach their full potential. The film accumulates startling facts and statistics that leave audiences shaken, armed with a new perspective, and asking the question, “What can we do?”

A 2011 pick for the Sundance Film Festival, the documentary compiles a slew of celebrity women including Rosario Dawson and Margaret Cho. Although the media can be exploiting, it can also be empowering. An example is when Academy Award winning actress Geena Davis discusses her role in the film A League of Their Own. After rave reviews at Sundance, Oprah purchased the broadcasting rights and the doc will premiere on OWN on October 20th.

Well no, she isn’t, but that was one of the funniest lines from the funniest episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race that has every aired, and I’m not even joking.

So last night was the end to a week long cliffhanger of who would come back. After all the names being guessed my money was on India Ferrah, mainly because I honestly don’t think we saw what she had to offer. India is someone with ridiculous talent, so much so that she can pretty much build a drag queen from nothing. She makes her own wigs, clothes, paints for filth all that stuff, so I thought it was going to be her because of this week’s challenge of putting straight men in drag.

Margaret Cho vs. Bristol Palin

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

It seems as though the DWTS competition is continuing on after the show has ended. In a blog posted by Margaret Cho, titled “Pistol Whipped,” Cho made the following claim:

“Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly…for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she ‘owed’ it to her to do DWTS so that ‘America would fall in love with her again’ and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012…”

Now in her defense, she prefaced it by saying that she and Bristol Palin are friends, etc. and that people were trying to pit the two of them against each other because of their opposing views. But you can’t make a claim about someone’s mamma bear without expecting a comeback now can you?

Well, here’s what Baby Bear Bristol said back…
