Emily Blunt wants to be a gay icon

emily blunt

Emily Blunt is great – I’ve always loved her both as an actress (sure, she’s had some dodgy roles, but who hasn’t?) and as a Hollywood personality. She’s endearing! She’s funny! She’s gorgeous! What’s not to like? Apparently not much, when it comes to the gay community. She’s got a massive gay fan base, which makes sense, and she loves it! Especially since she hopes to eventually become a gay icon.

From The Advocate:

Whether she’s bringing the heat to lesbian romances like My Summer of Love, kicking ass as a super soldier alongside Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow, or stealing scenes as Meryl Streep’s cube of cheese–eating assistant in The Devil Wears Prada, Emily Blunt has a filmography generously seasoned with roles that have earned the actress a large LGBT following. It’s a fact she’s lovingly aware of as we sit down to discuss her latest film, Disney’s big-screen adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods.

“I know that’s my demographic. That’s been made clear to me by my fans,” she says with a laugh, noting that she’s often stopped by gay admirers of her work when she’s out in public. “I love it. I think it’s so cool, because one day I hope to be a gay icon.”

When I joke with her that starring in a Sondheim musical alongside Meryl Streep wearing a wig worthy of a legendary drag queen automatically earns her the title, she gleefully giggles and exclaims, “Oh, thank God! Now I just need to go to more gay clubs so I can really have a good time.”

First of all, let me just say that I can’t wait to see Into the Woods. Second of all, I think Emily should probably realize that LGBT fans means it’s not just campy gay men who like her (and fetishizing that community is a bit weird, anyway), so… yeah. That being said, I’m sure she’ll get her gay icon status. She’s great!

Chris Brown is rushing through his community service work

chris brown

Chris Brown has a whopping 1,000 hours of community service to complete as part of his probation sentencing, which stems back from when he beat the shit out of Rihanna years ago. Well, he’s finally decided to start taking this seriously, apparently, and has been doing long days full of hard labour to try and get as much of the requirement satisfied before his next court date in February.

From TMZ:

We’ve learned, since November 13, Chris has been doing physical labor 6 hours a day, 5 days a week to complete his 1,000 hours by the next court hearing in mid-January. There have been a few weeks where work has gotten in the way, but the drill is 6/5.

Chris’ community service in the Rihanna case requires hard labor, and we’re told he’s working at a facility approved by the Probation Dept., painting, cleaning, trash removal, moving furniture … stuff like that.

Last Friday Chris put his 6 hours in and then jumped on a plane to Jacksonville, FL where he performed that night at the Memorial Arena. He then flew to Columbia, South Carolina for a Saturday show, then on to Birmingham, AL for a Sunday performance. He took a private jet back to L.A. for hard labor Monday.

And we’re told … he hasn’t complained or acted up.

Our sources say he’s on track to tell the judge during the next court appearance … mission accomplished.

Yeah, he hasn’t acted up FOR NOW. A tiger never changes its strips – this asshole will be back to the same shit tomorrow. In fact, it’s not like he actually ever changed, anyway – he still treats people, specifically women, like trash. The least he can be forced to do is pick some up for a few hours. But once a dickhead, always a dickhead – I find it hard to believe in redemption for Chris Brown, though I suppose a Christmas miracle is always possible…

Avril Lavigne might be in rehab

avril lavigne

Avril Lavigne has been having a bit of a rough time lately. Her marriage to Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger is apparently in trouble and according to some private messages she shared with a fan earlier this month, she’s been experiencing some undisclosed “health issues”:

avril lavigne health issues

Huh. Sounds pretty serious, eh? Well, according to some reports, the “health issues” Avril is experiencing are basically the result of partying too hard, and she’s apparently been spending time in rehab to get her shit together… at least according to Star Magazine.

After dropping out of the public eye for more than two months and refusing to answer to concerned love ones, the startling note had everyone wondering what’s wrong with the singer. “The buzz in her inner circle is that she’s been in rehab for depression and substance abuse issues,” a source close to the singer says. “Avril was an emotional wreck over her marital problems, and she turned to partying to deal with the pain.”

Basically, she’s headed for divorce and between her failed marriage and the fact that her career is pretty much over, she’s losing it bigtime.

And now, it appears that partying away her problems has damaged her health. “Avril feels more alone now than ever and just wants to make it through this,” the source adds. “Everyone hopes that if she is indeed with rehab, it serves her well and she learns better coping mechanisms. She’s got a lot of wonderful people in her life; she just needs to swallow her pride and embrace them.”

Huh. Here’s hoping whatever’s going on gets sorted out soon.

Kourtney Kardashian’s new son has a royal name

kourtney kardashian reign aston

Kourtney Kardashian gave birth to her third child with Scott Disick, a little boy, last week, and the world waited with bated breath for the answer to one very simple question: WHAT’S HIS NAME?! We now have an answer to that question, although I must warn you, it is a tad disappointing.

Kourtney revealed her son’s royal name on Instagram, as you do, along with above photo:

“Madly in love with my little Reign Aston Disick.”

Seriously? Reign? I mean, Mason and Penelope are slightly less common, but they were at least not ridiculous. Reign is a female stripper’s stage name – and there’s no shade to that, because it’s an AMAZING stripper name. Obviously the middle name, Aston, is Scott’s doing and probably after the Aston Marton sports car, if I had to guess. I don’t know, guys, this one just seems a wee bit tacky to me.

Elton John and David Furnish are officially married

elton john david furnish

Elton John and David Furnish have been together for absolutely ages – they’ve actually been civil partners since 2005 – and this weekend, they made things official with a lavish wedding ceremony at home in England.

From BBC News:

The couple have been hosting a ceremony at their Windsor estate in Berkshire with a number of stars in attendance.

David and Victoria Beckham, musician Ed Sheeran and actor David Walliams were among the guests.

The couple’s sons Zachary, who was born in 2010, and Elijah, born last year attended the ceremony.

Cute! It’s nice to see love being celebrated and I’m sure it was a fantastic day. They initially announced their plans to get properly married back in March, and they’ve managed to turn it all around in under a year, which is pretty impressive. Though I suppose with millions of dollars at your disposal, that’s a whole lot easier.

Congrats, in any case!

Mariah Carey “accidentally” caught on tape hitting that high note

mariah carey

Live performances haven’t necessarily been going too well for Mariah Carey lately – she’s been bombing in concert, on live TV, you name it. But just because Mariah’s voice isn’t quite what it used to be doesn’t mean she can’t still sing. In fact, she’s apparently been killing it during a series of New York City concerts this past week and also, oh, she was “accidentally” caught on tape doing vocal exercises and hitting that high as hell note she’s most well known for:

4th show! Chopsticks???

Um vídeo publicado por Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey) em

It’s sad as hell that Mariah, who is an actual diva in every sense of the world, feels desperate enough to prove that she’s still got it that she’ll stage a fake ass “surprise” video. I mean, those acting skills? Stop. Ariana Grande must really have her shook! Ha!

Starting now!!!
