Aretha Franklin And Patti LaBelle’s Fake Fight Gets Real With $10M Lawsuit
What character are we defaming here exactly? Is it Aretha’s character from Got 2B Real, the Diva Variety Show? The YouTube paraody series had storylines just like this one, leading me to hope that they were all somehow based in fact. It warms my cold, dead heart to think that there’s even a possibility of a 72-year-old Aretha Franklin and a 69-year-old Patti LaBelle going toe to toe, blow for blow in a public setting. Of course, it’d be T.K.O. as soon as Patti spread her wings like Mothra and launched her Louboutins directly at Aretha’s lace front.

FATALITY.

Hays’d: Decoding the Classics — ‘Laura’

In the 1942 book of the same name on which Laura is based, Waldo Lydecker was an obese, effete writer based on noted wit and raging cunt Alexander Woollcott. Preminger found Lydecker to be the most interesting character and expanded his role for the film. He had Webb in mind for the role, even though the 55-year-old thesp hadn’t made a film in some 15 years and had retreated to the resounding applause of the stage. 20th Century Fox head Daryl F. Zanuck preferred Laird Cregar, known for his villainous roles, but Preminger argued that Cregar would draw suspicion too early.

Zanuck was unconvinced and felt that Webb was too effeminate for the role. “He doesn’t walk, he flies!” the head of casting told Zanuck.

When Visibility Becomes Power
The transgender community, particularly transgender women of color, have long been among the most powerless, and therefore the most vulnerable, populations in America. But within the last year, we’ve seen trans women harness the media to empower and enlighten as never before. […]

These Are 5 Lies Gay Men Apparently Tell On First Dates

Dating, especially gay dating, can be a potential minefield and if you’re not careful you could end up with a leg blown off, or worse yet, getting blown off by someone you’re not even that interested in. Millionaire Matchmaker‘s David Cruz came up with five lies the gays tell each other — and themselves, if we’re being honest — on first dates. I’m surprised he was able to narrow it down to only five since most guys only have a passing acquaintance with the truth. Not that I’m bitter or anything…[see #5].

Hays’d: Decoding the Classics — “The Children’s Hour”

The overarching theme of 1961’s The Children’s Hour is that kids are the fucking worst. Oh, and that being a lesbian is a fate worse than, or at least akin to, death. Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine star as two schoolteachers whose lives are ruined when they are unjustly accused of “sinful, sexual knowledge of each other” by a mean-spirited, beady-eyed little troublemaker.
