John Travolta is as straight as cooked spaghetti (i.e. he’s gay, if you didn’t get that memo), but he’s not out, despite the neverending stories about his various homosexual escapades. One of his ex-lovers in particular, a man named Douglas Gotterba, says they had an affair back in the ’80s and wants to write about their relationship in a tell-all memoir. The problem is, it would go against a 20-year-old confidentiality agreement, so he’s taking it to court to get that overturned.
From the New York Daily News:
In a National Enquirer story labeled “ridiculous” by Travolta’s camp, pilot Doug Gotterba said he first met the “Grease” star in February 1981 when he interviewed for a pilot job – and by September they were lovers.
“I know the date (the affair began) because I still have the log book and records,” Gotterba, 62, told the Enquirer.
He said they flew to Monterey, Calif., together and shared a “fantastic” bottle of merlot wine over dinner at the Highlands resort in Carmel.
“I got the sense I was being courted,” Gotterba said. “As we walked from the restaurant back to the room, John suddenly said, “Hey, would you like a massage?’”
Gotterba said he’d expected the invitation, and the massage quickly led to sex.
“John was gentle but very passionate. The next day he told me with a big smile on his face, ‘I really enjoyed last night,’” Gotterba told the Enquirer.
You need to read the full story because there’s a LOT more, and it’s a doozy. Do I think most of it happened? Yup, sure do. Do I think this confidentiality agreement will be overturned? I don’t know, but part of me hopes not. I understand that John’s level of gayness and his inability to not be a weirdo about it (we all remember the masseuses) is ridiculous, but I also don’t think ANYONE should ever be pressured or forced to come out when they’re uncomfortable doing so, which this dude clearly is. It’s a shame he can’t embrace who he truly is, but that’s not really anyone else’s decision to make – or live with – but his.
Oh, and here’s John and Douglas together back in the ’80s:

Just because it’s a thing that exists, I suppose I have to share Pharrell‘s new video for ‘Come and Get It Bae’, which is his new single with none other than Miley Cyrus. It’s a shit song and a shit video, but I guess some people like it. (For the record, I think Pharrell is WAY overrated, and Miley is… well, Miley).
What do you think of the song? The video? The idiotic name of this track? (“Bae”? No.)

You wanted it (not really), it’s here (unfortunately): it’s time for the first 50 Shades of Grey trailer. The movie isn’t coming out until next Valentine’s Day, but apparently panties are still wet over this stupid shit, so a teaser just had to be released.
In terms of Beyoncé‘s musical contribution, it seems like she did a remake of ‘Crazy In Love’ for the trailer. Not sure if that’s the extent of her contribution or what, but here goes nothing.
What do we think, then? Looks boring as shit to me, but I’ll probably be forced to watch it anyway.

It seems like our longstanding national nightmare might finally be coming to a close, as Robin Thicke has apparently finally accepted the fact that his marriage to Paula Patton is dunzo and cannot be repaired. That’s right – no matter how many albums he releases with her name, no matter how many bouquets of flowers he tries to hawk in the name of love, she’s just not having it. THANK GOD.
Robin Thicke is waving the white flag … telling people in his camp his marriage to Paula Patton has collapsed.
Thicke certainly gave a strong sign the union is over by listing his L.A. home Monday. Paula has not lived in the house since their separation in February, after that grab-ass pic became public.
Sources connected with Robin tell TMZ … an attorney is already working on a financial settlement — separating assets.
Our sources say, however, neither side has hired a divorce lawyer.
Thicke is saying he will NOT be the one who files for divorce … she’ll have to do it. But he says he’s done begging and is moving on.
Aw, what’s the matter, Robin? Too much trouble? Find a woman still willing to put out cos she doesn’t really want a relationship, she just wants the D? Fuck this dude and God help any woman who actually decides to get involved with him in future.

Snoop Dogg can get high just about anywhere, but could that possibly include the White House? That’s what he claimed in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, who asked, “Have you ever smoked in the White House?” Here’s the answer, via StarPulse:
In the bathroom…not in the White House but in the bathroom. ‘Cause I said, ‘May I use the bathroom for a second?’ And they [the security team] said, ‘What do you want to do a number one or number two?’ And I said ‘number two’… So I said when I do a number two I usually have a cigarette or I light something to get the aroma right and they said,’You know what, you can light a piece of napkin’ and I said ‘I’ll do that’ and the napkin was this [weed].
Yeah, I don’t know. Wouldn’t they have smelled the weed? I doubt your story, Mr. Dogg.
What do you think? By the way if you’re not following him on Instagram, you’re missing gems like the above photo of Snoop wearing heart-shaped glasses.

Lady Gaga posted the above photo of herself on Instagram this week, which apparently prompted a bunch of “fans” to leave comments calling her fat and putting her down. Here’s the comment in question: “Gaga is over, she is fat, Katy is better than her.”
Of course, Gaga is an angel on earth, so she fought back by posting this next photo with the caption “Curvy and proud”.
Uh, okay… first of all, this photo does not show Gaga as “curvy”. It shows her as conventionally thin and in no way overweight. That being said, I do think it’s stupid that people are calling her fat. Gaga has always had fluctuating weight, and has never been what any normal person would consider “fat”. But if you’re gonna say you’re “curvy and proud”, at least look somewhat curvy, and I don’t mean your shoes.
What do you think?
