Adam Lambert’s an “Outlaw of Love,” Miley Cyrus’ Finger is Gay, SamRo Gets Arrested


Hard at work in the studio writing and recording his second album, our golden boy stepped out with his first performance of new material since For Your Entertainment the other night in Quebec. “Outlaws of Love” beautifully articulates the struggle many gay people experience moving through the world and was co-written by Adam and BC Jean, a singer-songwriter known for co-writing Beyonce’s “If I Were a Boy.”

Everywhere we go
We’re lookin’ for the sun
Nowhere to grow old
We’re always on the run
They say we’ll rot in Hell
But I don’t think we will
They’ve branded us enough
Outlaws of love

Adam tells US Weekly that the new album will be far more personal than For Your Entertainment:

“This album is different in that is has a more serious tone. There is definitely fun, upbeat music on there too. This album has a thread of honesty in that it is real and personal. On this album I let people in further. It is an autobiographical album that portrays my dreams and aspirations. There are also some songs that deal with heartache and love. Whereas my old album was fun, campy, and over the top, this album is more contemporary and honest. The last album was more of a fantasy and this album is a search for my identity.”

He was also misquoted in the same interview as saying:

“I don’t like to talk about my relationship [with boyfriend Sauli Koskinen] so if you see pictures of us out to dinner together, then great! I don’t see myself getting married in the future.”

Finally, are we all aware he’s getting his very own VH1 Behind the Music, airing this Sunday?.


You must download the latest Gay Pimpin’ with Jonny McGovern podcast in which Julie Goldman walks you through the E! True Hollywood Story of her slightly traumatic experience on RuPaul’s Drag U (jump about 90 minutes in). And, you don’t want to miss any gems from Brandy Howard in the studio as well, so get comfy cause you’ll likely be listening to the 3 hour episode in it’s entirety.


She tweeted this photo of her 7th tattoo, an equality symbol with the message “All LOVE is equal” Salon details her outspoken nature when it comes to the gays:

Two months ago, the 18-year-old singer got in a Twitter tiff with a fellow Tennessean over “moral values” and declared she’s “not gonna be a closed-minded hypocrite,” before ripping into Rick Santorum and his acolytes, including “SHADYASHELL” Urban Outfitters. And last month, after the Casey Anthony verdict, she was railing on Twitter that “You know the world is skewed when people get away with murdering children but we cant get gay marriage legalized in the state of California.”

I also ran into her outside Coffee Bean in Palm Springs, a block away from Dinah Shore 2010, so.


Samantha Ronson was arrested for DUI on Monday, after DJing her brother Mark’s bachelor party at Lavo nightclub in Las Vegas. She was pulled over for speeding (89 m.p.h in a 70 m.p.h. zone) in her black Porsche and “showing signs of being impaired” at approximately 10:30 a.m. After failing a field-sobriety test and refusing a Breathalyzer test, Ronson was taken to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, charged with two misdemeanor counts of Driving Under the Influence and released a little before 6 p.m. Fun fact: According to the booking sheet, SamRon is listed as 5’7″ and 102 pounds.


Wearing an outfit that could only inspire fashion-envy from Barbara Walters and my grandma, Gaga co-hosted The View and performed “You and I.” She chats about the death of Amy Winehouse and a bit more of her past use of Cocaine (which she detailed on Howard Stern).

RENT is back Off-Broadway and Entertainment Weekly has a great interview with director Michael Greif, detailing the revival’s updated cast, set and wardrobe. And check out Vanity Fair’s gallery of images from the new production.

Speaking of revivals, there was a time when Lea Michele was rumored to take the lead role in the new Funny Girl, but it looks as through Six Feet Under‘s Lauren Ambrose has been cast. It is  also now officially official that Darren Criss will replace Daniel Radcliffe in How to Succeed in Business… for a three week stint beginning January 3rd.

  1. I have a growing respect for Miley Cyrus.

    And on another note- SamRo is hella thin!

  2. Im not a hanna montana fan. Im the opposite of that.
    But I have to admit that she now has 10+

  3. The costumes for Rent don’t look that different, although… they do give me an excuse to see it again.

    I’m not usually an Adam Lambert fan but I like the new song. The lyrics are particularly poignant, I think I would have moved if there weren’t fans squealing sporadically through the number.

    Never really gotten the love for SamRo, but that’s just me. She looks pretty rough though in that pic.

  4. yay for Miley. even though im 23, i must say im a big fan of hers hahaha, just went to her Gypsy Heart tour last month. She was amazing.

    Also yay for Julie and Brandy. DO you have to pay for the podcasts? or do they just download. i think i tried to get one once before but couldnt figure out how lol

    • I cried when the last Hannah Montana episode aired. I weeped. I felt like my childhood was dying all over again. I’m older than 23. lol. I love Miley, I’ve been so impressed with her the past few months. It’s not hyped at all, it’s very personal to her for whatever reason. Most likely working in showbiz and being around so many gays since she was young.

  5. Thanks for the shout out Jess! And thank you for listening to the podcast..

    Have u seen Samantha Ronson’s mug shot???? It’s hilar.

  6. Just wanted to bring to everyone’s attention that Adam was MISQUOTED on his response to that marriage question – which he just Tweeted about:

    adamlambert Adam Lambert
    This is why imma keep my mouth shut when asked about my relationship… Please Don’t fuck w me tabloids!!!

    Not in the NEAR future. Get it right.
    3 hours ago

    Also, just wanted to say “thank you” to your site for your “fan-girling” over Adam! His fans appreciate all the support you’ve shown him! oxo

  7. Can you update the Adam Lambert story about his statements to US Weekly, please? He tweeted, “Not in the NEAR future. Get it right.” Then, “This is why imma keep my mouth shut when asked about my relationship… Please Don’t fuck w me tabloids!!!” After, he retweeted his boyfriend’s cute tweet making fun of the misquote: “Now I am sooooo sad because I just found the perfect white wedding dress ;)”
    Adam & Sauli are such a cute couple.

  8. Lea Michele as Fanny Brice = no1curr. Lauren Ambrose as Fanny Brice = AMAZEBOOBS. I am having the nerdiest Broadway fan flail moment right now.

  9. first danrad, now darren criss…harry potter’s doing pretty well for himself on broadway, it seems!

    • IKR. Darren Criss replacing DanRad must be a joke, right? Surely? Like tongue-in-cheek?

      Or maybe A Very Potter Musical just isn’t the universal pop culture experience I think it is?

  10. Never got the appeal of Samantha Ronson until the mugshot. Sexiest mugshot I have ever seen.

    Lesson for everyone – You never drink more in your life than you do at a sibling’s bachelor/bachelorette party. Always hire a limo for that night.

  11. This might just be because I’m not a tattoo-y person by nature, but I kind of feel like getting political campaigns tattooed on your body is sort of sad. “Marriage equality” as a phrase, as an ideal, shouldn’t have to be with you/me/Miley/us forever because it should just, you know … the fight should be finite and then we should just be able to go back to our lives.

    But then again it’s not like oppression just ups and goes away, either.

    • maybe she means it as a more general symbol of equality? like, obviously marriage equality isn’t the be-all-end-all of lgbt rights, even if gay marriage was legalized tomorrow we still wouldn’t be totally equal. So her tattoo will stay relevant, in a way.

      Aaaand of course I have no idea if she was thinking that or not, excuse my baseless speculation. :P

    • I thought it was weird too, but I guess maybe the phrase has personal meaning to her or something…like maybe she went to a fortune teller and the fortune teller told her she needed to balance her relationships and that her love for her father could be just as strong as her love for the USA and parties, so then she got that tattoo.

      • wait do they really? will a finger tat eventually just disappear? seriously this is important info i need to know

  12. Thanks for correcting the Adam Lambert information. Now if only the original article would do the same. :)

  13. When does Julie Goldman’s E True Hollywood version of Drag Race air exactly? I’m 90 minutes in and it’s the sneaking-pills-out-of-Mexico part.. unless that’s the traumatic drag part? lol

  14. I’m now not sure the place you are getting your info, but great topic. I needs to spend a while learning more or understanding more. Thank you for fantastic info I used to be searching for this info for my mission.
