!! OMG, He’ll Play Gay (Again and Again): James Franco !!

james_franco_01.jpg
James Franco: if he’s not actually gay, he may be America’s hottest fag hag! Whether he’s playing Harvey Milk’s naked boyfriend in Milk, hanging like two nuts in a sac with drag performance artist Kalup Linzy or making erotic video art about Kirk and Spock doing a modified Vulcan mind-meld with their dick and butt, Dimples Franco doesn’t care who thinks he’s a big homo. He’s not but who cares!
He tells The Independent:

The worst downside, and I don’t consider this a downside, the worst thing that anybody could say is that I was gay and if somebody said that I guess they would be wrong, but I also wouldn’t care and as far as being typecast, that’s not the case, nonetheless I would be happy to play 100 gay roles as long as they were always good parts.

James, I have a gay role for you! Okay, so you come over to my apartment– the door’ll be unlocked– and I’ll be…
Oh, just see my ad on Craig’s List!

!! OMG, Happy Father’s Day from OMG Blog (and Madonna) !!


Forget to get your father a present for Father’s Day? Just do what I do every year! Buy yourself a wig, fling yourself over some coffee table or something, and perform an elaborate, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink reenactment of Madonna’s classic OH FATHER performance from Truth or Dare.
In my family it always ends with dear old daddy-o storming out of the house three sheets to the wind, but maybe things will go better with you!

!! OMG, he’s confused: James Franco !!


Writer/actor/total f*cking dreamboat James Franco is adding another cranberry to his already overflowing cornucopia of talents! Now he’s an artist with a real live art opening! And it’s not a bunch of still lifes and landscapes either– the dimpled beauty tells reporters that his show, titled The Dangerous Book for Boys and curated by one Amanda Heiss at the Clocktower Gallery in Manhattan, is all about male sexual confusion:

“The Dangerous Book Four Boys” addresses boyhood and the “sexual confusion” of adolescence, as Ms. Heiss put it. Short films focus on demolition, showing burning or bullet-riddled structures like a plastic toy home or a large wooden rocket (the exhibition contains originals or replicas of these). Another work explores a romantic encounter between “Star Trek” characters Spock and James T. Kirk.

“I feel like shows or films that deal with kids, they’re playing to all of these sexual feelings that you have at that age, but they don’t fully admit to it,” [Franco] said. “So I kind of try to draw that out. The implicit in those shows and books, I try to make it a little more explicit.”

Confused about your sexuality, James? Not to worry– I think I could clear up a few things for you! I even have a pair of Spock ears I can slap on. If that’s what it takes!

!! OMG, See It: Stonewall Uprising !!


Stonewall Uprising opened yesterday in Manhattan, and although I’m out of town and haven’t had a chance to see it yet, the preview looks great.
Despite its important place in the movement for gay equality, I’ve always been a little fuzzy on what actually happened at Stonewall– there are so many conflicting stories and very few pictures. On top of that, the story’s always seemed a little unreal to me, not only because it’s hard to imagine what it was like to be gay in 1969 but also because it’s kind of impossible to imagine a New York in which it was actually possible for people to fight back against the cops. Hopefully the documentary will clarify things! You should see it this weekend if you can.

!! OMG, Str8-as-nails American McD’s rejects French McDoh’s Sodomy Burgers !!


Red-blooded, Coca Cola-drinking, slut-bangin’ American Ronald McDonald has finally spoken out against his swishy, Fanta-swilling Euro cousin, Pierre McDonald, and the message couldn’t be clearer: Keep your faggy-ass Frenchy Burgers and homo advertisements out of our Christian country! (We’ll take the French Fries , but without the side of Muslim Astroglide, thx!)
Jesus-fearing American McD’s executive recently gave the following quote to the Chicago Tribune:

It is an example that markets, cultures are very different around the world. I’ve never shied away from the fact that I’m a Christian. I have my own personal beliefs, and I don’t impose those on anybody else. I’ve been in countries where the majority of the people in the country don’t believe in a deity, or they may be atheist. Or the majority of the country is Muslim. Or it may be the majority is much younger skewed. So, when you look at all these differences, it’s not that I’m to be the judge or the jury relative to right or wrong. Having said that, at McDonald’s, there are core values we stand for, and the world is getting much closer. So, we have a lot of conversations. We’re going to make some mistakes at times. [We talk] about things that may have an implication in one part of the world and may be the cultural norm in another part of the world. And those are things that, yes, we’re going to learn from. But you’re right, that commercial won’t show in the United States.

OH! Is this what they teach you at Hamburger University? Perhaps Kelly Killoren Bensimon is a professor of English there– because I do not understand two sentences of whatever the f*ck this person is talking about. Except the part where he’s a Christian (like we care?) and there’s no f*cking way that McDonald’s is going to air some homosexual advertisement within the star spangled borders of These Here United Str8s of America!
(Considering that Early Bird was banished from the McDonaldland menagerie for being way too appealing to burgeoning sissies, I can’t say I’m surprised.)
