!! OMG, He’s Out: Sean Hayes !!

In the biggest news since we found out that the moon is not actually made of green cheese, The Advocate has just broken the huge news that Will & Grace’s Sean Hayes is a gay. What do you know! I had no idea he was in the closet in the first place. I can’t decide what to think about this, but Mr. Hayes seems kind of annoyed at the whole thing:

“I am who I am. I was never in, as they say. Never.”

“What more do you want me to do? Do you want me to stand on a float? And then what? It’s never enough.”

“I feel like I’ve contributed monumentally to the success of the gay movement in America, and if anyone wants to argue that, I’m open to it. You’re welcome, Advocate.”

My predictions for the next stars The Advocate will force out of the closet: Jim J. Bullock, Elton John and KD Lang!

!! OMG, a numerological countdown to Erykah Badu’s album release !!

A lot has been happening in the world of soul/R&B singer Erykah Badu since we blogged about her latest single “Window Seat” a while back. We’ve been AWOL with the updates so in case you haven’t been following her every tweet, here is one big recap of most major Badu-related news items from the previous weeks.
The countdown to the release of Erykah’s latest album, New Amerykah Part 2 (Return of the Ankh) is continuing with a numerological campaign called (((333))). The idea springs from the record’s March 30, 2010 release date: March 30, 2010 is 3/3/3 or 2 + 0 + 1 + 0 = 3. Leading up to the big day, Erykah will periodically release new bits of material via Twitter at 3:33 p.m./a.m. (In fact, there should be something new happening on her website at 3:33 p.m. today.)
“The number has always been in my life — every time I look at the clock it seems to be there, whether it’s a.m. or p.m.,” Badu explained in a recent Billboard interview. “I look at it as a sign that I’m on the right path.”
The Billboard article also contains several other interesting tidbits, such as:

  • At a listening party last year, Erykah swore that she wouldn’t release any new material if it leaked online. True to her word, she hasn’t been performing any new songs at recent West Coast concerts. Instead, she’s been mixing cover songs, such as the Snoop Dogg classic “Ain’t No Fun”, into her set lists.
  • Erykah has an executive assistant and tour manager, but she’s never had a manager, and “she does everything from conceptualize and direct her videos to style her outfits and handwrite her albums’ thank-you notes.”
  • Delta Airlines has licensed “Window Seat” as boarding music for its flights. The song debuted at No. 47 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart making it the best debut of the year and the second best of her career.

AND if that isn’t enough Erykah news, she also made headlines when she managed to clear a sample from the “unusually funky” Paul McCartney song “Arrow Through Me” by hollering at Lenny Kravitz and Stella McCartney on Twitter.
Above is a video of Erykah performing “Window Seat” on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show and after the jump you can check out the Erykahleidoscopic video for the web-only track “Jump Up in the Air and Stay There” featuring Lil Wayne and a live performance of the James Taylor/Carole King classic “You’ve Got a Friend”.

!! OMG, Grown Man Cries Over Kathryn Bigelow !!

Well, I completely bombed out on my Oscar picks, but actually I hate the Oscars so who cares? At least Kathryn Bigelow won so the guy crying in the above video can dry his tears…
(I guess people crying about dumb things on YouTube is becoming some kind of “meme” now? Well hmm!)

!! OMG, Hot Tranny Rescue: TRANSform Me !!

Still mourning the loss of Queer Eye For the Straight Guy?! Of course! We all are! But you know– gays are very 2003. And let’s not even talk about the Daughters of Sappho. They went out with GO FISH and BOUND. I don’t even think I’ve laid eyes on a lesbian since Janet Reno was still Attorney General.
Obviously it’s all about trannies these days! And being on the vanguard of alternative gender identity means it’s time for a makeover show on reality teevee! Enter: TRANSform Me, the groundbreaking new program where a bunch transwomen tell a bunch of frumpy non-trans hausfraus how to look fabulous fierce like hot tranny messes. Emphasis on the hot, of course!

TRANSform Me is a makeover show in which a team of three transgender women, led by the inimitable Laverne Cox (I Want To Work For Diddy), rescues women from personal style purgatory. Laverne and her ultra-glam partners in crime have undergone the ultimate transformation, so they’re the perfect women for the job.
They’ll travel the country in their tricked out fashion ambulance, siren blaring, and swoop into scenes of fashion disaster. They’ll not only make women look better but feel a whole lot better about themselves. It’s about discovering one’s inner personal style. […] The subject expects to be made over for a reality show–but she doesn’t know it’s going to be by three transgender women.

Will this program be empowering and barrier-breaking? Or will it just be another pathetic minstrel show embarrassment? My money is on who cares I’m watching! Which isn’t saying a lot cause VH1 could give Adolph Hitler himself a dating show and I’d watch it just to avoid having to change the channel after Celebrity Rehab. But check out the TRANSform Me page and decide for yourself…

The tireless workers at Videogum have gotten their hands on footage of noted songstress and spiritual leader Gwyneth Paltrow doing a moving rendition of KILLING ME SOFTLY at the wrap party for her new movie Love Don’t Let Me Down. She sings! She acts! She wins Oscars! She used to bone Brad Pitt! Can Gwyneth do anything? Well duh… of course she can. She’s the living conduit for the Hindu goddess Kali! A little bit of everything all rolled into one!
