Today on Autostraddle: Green & Riese will tackle the love! and loss! and life! and lesbians! in the Young Adult Fiction section, because reading is auto-fundamental. Stef recaps Lady GaGa’s NYC concert and later this evening Carly is, per ushe, your Tuesday Televisionary (TK).
Too easy, Miss California. Just too. fucking. easy. And down you go with your nude photos, ten toy soldiers all in a row. I can’t wait to see what Gallagher’s got up her Wal-Mart blazered sleeve. (@popcrunch)

I don’t want anyone to get Annoyed, but this — the latest tape to be released on the Interrogation Tapes website — is probably the best video I’ve ever seen. It stars Ilene FUNkin’ Chaiken, executive producer of Everything Awesome in the Whole World. It’s called “Last Word #2” which is unlikely, I suspect this woman will never stop talking. In this episode she skirts responsibility for several of her self-induced traumas. I turn you over to the Master of the Universe, let us bow to her Greatness and praise her:
I want to save your life by stalking you: Okay someone needs to decide if cupcakes are trendy, or life-threatening. No more fucking around. I’d be emotionally eating too if I had Full Metal Jacket following me around town. Also, you’re beautiful! (@ Feministing.com)
Nancylee Myatt (who we met last year at the NewNowNext Awards and she told us she wrote 3Way so Maeve Quindan would move in with her) writer and producer of South of Nowhere and 3Way is interviewed by Jill Bennett, and by that we mean they get drunk together! (@shewired)
