This Is SO Weird: David Archuleta Goes On A Mormon Mission

It's not weird because he's Mormon and going on a mission. It's like he's on the edge of tears because he doesn't really want to go and like he has a gun to his back. The Mormons I knew in high school that were getting ready to go on their mission were PUMPED about it. Why does it seem like he's about to start balling?

Carson Daly Gets In Trouble For Making Fun Of Gay People

Idiot. He was discussing a JFK flight to Vegas in which a pilot had a meltdown and passengers had to secure a whacked-out pilot to seats with seatbelts and restraints. It was a bunch of security people, apparently, going to a security conference. But he managed to say 'If it were me, my luck, it'd be a bunch of homos or queens going to Pride or a floral convention.' (In so many words.) Here's the audio:

Now, people freaked out. He apologized, via Twitter, naturally, with this wimpy piece of shit: "This morning on my radio show I attempted to make fun of myself & offended others by mistake. I sincerely apologize."

Part of what got people so riled up was the story of Mark Bingham, a 220-pound 6'4" gay man who tackled terrorists onboard a flight on 9/11. He was part of a passenger team that deterred a flight that was headed for Washington D.C. His mother was interviewed by TMZ and she has this amazing story to tell:

"Yes, my gay son was known in our family for bringing me flowers on my birthday and Mother’s Day. He also was known for careening down the rugby pitch, and, on the morning of September 11, 2001, for charging unarmed down the aisle of a doomed Boeing 757 to face knife-wielding Islamist thugs in a hijacked cockpit.

No one among his pick-up team of fellow passengers was asking 'Are you straight? Are you gay?' No one doubted that a guy who weighed 220 and stood 6’4” tall - who could run over a charging opponent on the field, and ran with the bulls in Pamplona earlier that summer - would be an asset to a desperate group trying to overcome a threat onboard an airliner."

The world has its share of strong, heroic gay men. Gay men in sports uniforms and military uniforms have been winning America’s games and fighting America’s battles for a long time: quietly, humbly, and in the face of vicious bigotry.

I hope you and I may have an opportunity to talk sometime. I prefer to believe you didn’t mean to offend. Good luck to you."

When Your Ex-Love May Be Talking To You Through His Blog

And obviously I through mine.

In our 21st century world, in which I cannot bear to be his Facebook friend and I still run into his friends at bars and spill my drunk mouth, I let this stuff stoke nostalgia. Love is not easy and life on the internet can be SO WEIRD. But his blog is actually great.

Might not even be me he's talking to. Boy, this got awkward.

Houston Dynamo Footballer Calls Ball Boy A "F*cking Faggot"

USA Today:

"After hurling a gay slur at a Seattle ball boy, the Houston Dynamo's Colin Clark is apologizing.

After he didn't get the ball like he wanted on a throw-in during an MLS game, Clark yelled an expletive and the slur.

Both were picked up by sideline microphones."

Jon Hamm, The Man, Tells It Like It Is RE: Paris And Kim Kunty

First, he tells Elle UK this little gem:

""Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a fucking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly."

Then, Kim found it on her they're-talking-about-me radar and had this to say:

"I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, “stupid,” is in my opinion careless."

AMAZING. Even funnier? The DListed "translation" of Kim's statement:

"I heard Jon Hamm's comment about me 3 milliseconds after he said it, because we have this satellite in space that sends a signal to the butt plug up my ass every time a famous person or member of the media says my name! I am a firm believer that everyone should talk about me as much as possible and that not everyone takes the same path in life. But you'd be stupid to not take the same piss-stained path I took, because I'm rich as shit! I don't work at all and I don't even respect myself. I don't run my own businesses, I can't even produce a shit without Ryan Seacrest's help, I don't know how to write, I don't know what the word "design" means and the only thing I've ever created is a new strain of herpes, but I'm still way more rich and famous than Jon Hamm. So Jon Hamm can call me "stupid" as long as he keeps saying my name!"

WTF: Videogum's Crazy-Ass 'Chase Crawford Is Single' "Story"

Chase Crawford is almost definitely gay. And has been sighted at gay bars and clubs and what not. We know that celebrities enjoy straight status as long as possible, and PR stunts like these are nothing new. But this one just seems extra-transparent. So this is from the Big Pond News, it seems:

"The ‘Gossip Girl’ actor is currently single and thinks his perfect date to woo a girl would be dinner and then an evening watching his favourite band.

He told Closer magazine: ‘I can’t find The One. I’m a massive fan of the Black Eyed Peas, so going to one of their gigs with a girl and then dinner would be perfect.’"


"Can you believe that Chace Crawford, Gossip Girl‘s Nate Archibald, is currently single? I KNOW. Who would have thought such a normal looking and seeming guy, a guy as normal looking and seeming as a tiny little porcelain doll brought to life by an evil witch, could have gone this long without finding the perfect woman. Life is crazy sometimes. And just as crazy as life (very good wording) is how Chace Crawford is still single, EVEN THOUGH you guys have the same idea of the perfect date!"


"What the heck??? Where have you been all of each others’ lives! Crazy to think how you’re both out there, wanding around this silly globe, each looking for The One, when your The One is staring right back at you each week when you watch Gossip Girl. “If only I can find a man to take me to a BEP gig before dinner — but no, that man does not exist. We all have to settle at some point, and I’ll just have to settle for less,” you’re thinking. How foolish you are sometimes! I hope you take this as inspiration and drive to never give up on getting exactly what you want. Get it, girl!"

Tough Italian Dad Gets "Born This Way" On His Wrist For Son

The YouTube video's page has text that says the following:

"So: my brother came out that he was Bisexual last year and it was one of the hardest things he's ever had to do and one of the most courageous. He was most nervous about coming out to my old school Italian father who can be a bit of a hardass but mush at heart. So my brother decided to get born this way tattooed on his wrist in gagas handwriting after he met her, for obvious reasons, and it meant and still does a lot to him. My dad yesterday before Dylan came home for spring break got born this way in Italian tattooed on his wrist to show his acceptance and deep love for his only son who he is so proud of every day. I love my family."

Seriously, look what he confessed to MTV:

"All I have to say is, it's true: I have a man crush on Adam. It blows me away people can pick up on that just by watching that on television. I want to kiss him. I want to kiss him so bad. I don't care if it's mutual or not. Can you honestly tell me that you don't have a little bit of a crush on Adam? He's sexy, is the word I'm using."

Kirk Cameron Responds To His Piers Morgan Spot's Backlash

A little excerpt of his defense:

"I should be able to express moral views on social issues, especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years -- without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach 'tolerance' that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square.

I believe we need to learn how to debate these things with greater love and respect. I've been encouraged by the support of many friends (including gay friends, incidentally)."
