!! OMG, it’s Nice to Popstars Day! !!

In the wake of yesterday’s shocking Leona Lewis bookstore attack, British website Popjustice has proclaimed today ‘Nice To Popstars’ day: “This day involves everyone being really nice to popstars, if just for one day.”
As a website that both indulges in popstar gossip and occasionally interviews popstars – some of whom are British, all of whom are wonderful – we are encouraging our readers to support the cause. If you aren’t sure what you can do, Popjustice has created a manifesto with a few suggestions. To wit:

» Tweet a popstar and tell them something you like about them. Maybe respond with a cheery ‘LOL’ to their endless pleas to purchase a new single or album.
» If a popstar releases a new song you consider to be below average quality or perhaps not up to the high standards of their previous releases, do not flood the internet with endless messages along the lines of ‘THIS ACT SHOULD BE DROPPED NOW THEY’RE SHIT THEY WERE SHIT ALL ALONG THEY’LL ALWAYS BE SHIT HOW CAN ANYONE THINK THIS IS ANYTHING OTHER THAN SHIT OH GOD MY EARS MY EARS SOMEONE SAVE ME FROM THIS WALL OF SHIT’. Instead, post some constructive criticism, or maybe say nothing at all! As the old saying goes, “if you can’t say something nice, start a gossip blog”.
» If someone sends you a YouTube clip of a popstar falling over, delete the message and don’t forward or retweet it. You’ll do so safe in the knowledge that while you have watched the clip and found it highly entertaining, you have not passed it on to other people – you are therefore morally superior.
» Seen an ex-member of a boyband, for example Blue, out and about? Brighten their day by not shouting “OI WANKER” across the street.
» Go to iTunes and purchase the worst song on a popstar’s album – it’s probably their favourite track.
» There are loads of ways you can be nice to your favourite popstar. Let your imagination run wild!

You can also follow the niceties on Twitter with the hashtag #nicetopopstars.
By the way, I’d like to take this opportunity to compliment Beyonce on her many lace-front wigs. Looks just like real hair!

!! OMG, Balloon Boy !!


BREAKING! BREAKING! So I’m on the bus right now and am clearly missing out on the story of the century, but I guess all of you are probably glued to your teevees right now fretting over Balloon Boy’s wild ride! (UPDATE: I guess he just came down? UPDATE: But maybe he’s not in the balloon???)
Anyway, I’ve just been informed that Balloon Boy and his family recently were featured on WIFE SWAP. I can’t even watch this video because I have no headphones, but OMG’s Wife Swap Correspondent Kyle reports:

“Oh my god THIS FAMILY!??!?!?!
so nuts!
the STORM CHASERSSSSSS with the ASIAN WIFE!”

Thanks to Kyle for his astute analysis, and to Brian for alerting me to Balloon Boy’s reality teevee fame. Let’s all pray for his speedy return to earth.

!! OMG, What a Crazy Dentist! !!


Who knew that Lady Gaga had time to be both a marcher for gay rights and the leader of the “Birther” movement?
But seriously, can I tell you how much I love birther beauty Orly Taitz? Between her fabulous eye-makeup, her kicky Moldavian accent— (isn’t Moldavia that country where everyone from Dynasty was killed?)– and an amazing wig that seems to hover several inches above her head at all times, this woman has gay icon written all over her. Now she’s going above and beyond the call of gay duty by going head to head with Joy Behar. Could Orly be the Liza Minelli of right wing insane people? I think maybe! Someone give this woman a GLAAD award for lifetime fabulousness!

!! OMG, panic! !!


Is it LOL or is it completely f*cked up? Uh, why can’t it be both? It’s Japanese!
The Japanese, innovators in insanity, have invented a show called Panic Face King, in which they scare the living shit out of people and laugh at them. In this clip, a man thinks he’s trapped in a room that’s under attack by snipers. Look at that crazy face he makes when he thinks he’s about to be killed! Hilarious!
This is wrong and bad! I am offended! (I’m LOLing.)

!! OMG, How Romantic: Mariah Carey Proposal !!


Hey, I don’t know that onstage at a Mariah Carey show is where I would choose to make my marriage proposal, but maybe that’s why I don’t have a husband.
Over at the Advocate, the newly-betrothed Maurie Sherman and Matthew Almeida talk about their wedding plans (Mariah themed!), what it was like to meet Mariah (surprising!), and other people they would like to propose in front of (Mariska Hargitay!).
