For a lot of us, famous and normals alike, 2016 was a narrative we would like to be excluded from and that we never asked to be a part of.

But if nothing else, it was a great year for celebrity gossip. Thanks to social media, egos and impulse control had a banner year — for better and most certainly for worse. Here are the best celebrity feuds of a very petty year.

Lifetime is really trying it.

First, they gave us half-hearted biopics of Whitney Houston and Toni Braxton. Now, the cable channel “for women” is — gasp! — remaking a tearjerker classic.

Idina Menzel, Broadway and “Frozen” star, has been cast in a 2017 remake of “Beaches.” That’s right, the 1988 film starring Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey that still makes us cry every single time. Read More

Five Straight Musicians Who Have Courted The Gays To Varying Degrees Of Success
BY: DAN TRACER

Just in time for Madonna’s new album to hit stores (do record stores even exist anymore?), here’s a look at five musicians over the years who have identified potential to resonate in the gay community and actively worked to strengthen those ties.

Some to more success than others…

1. Nick Jonas

We’d be remiss not to mention Nick Jonas first. He (or someone he’s paying handsomely to do publicity) realized early on that a gay fan base is a good fan base. His was a multi-pronged approach. Show up live at gay bars flashing your abs? Check. Come out with a sex-forward ad champaign reminiscent of locker room cruising? Check. Play a gay character on TV and be quoted saying, “the sexiest things in a person is their acceptance of all people”? Check. And mate. As manufactured as his appeal to gay men might be from a marketing perspective, we get the sense that Nick really is the ally he makes himself out to be. And the fact that he’s the first American straight pop star go this direction is, well, groundbreaking. Read More

Gay Icon: Who doesn’t want the title and who is fighting for it.

Gay Icon: Who doesn’t want the title and who is fighting for it.
Adam Dupuis | December 12, 2014

When Gay Icon is mentioned, who comes to mind? What qualities do they possess? Do they pick to be a gay icon? Fight for the title? Is it bestowed on them? Is it a male or female?

Adam Lambert recently tweeted that he was a little fed up with tabloids, media, and the fans questioning “is he or isn’t he gay.” Of course, the questions are not about him, even though they could have been during his American Idol contestant days (if the guy-liner wasn’t a giveaway). So if not about him, whom is Lambert referring to? Even the Taylors, Swift and Lautner, were swept up in the “is s/he gay” debate. His tweets don’t come out and say a name, but recently, it seems like there are too many young singers to count that might be his target. Two that appear to have the most vibrant bulls eyes on their backs are Harry Stiles and Nick Jonas. Lambert’s tweets are directed toward the “straight male pop stars [who] r pandering to gay audiences lately.” After all, the title of Gay Icon in the music world is one that is a coveted honor and one that usually promotes longevity. Look at Cher, Bette Midler, Madonna, Diana Ross etc. Their careers have lasted longer than I have been alive. But then again, is the title coveted by all? Read More
