These pics of Gaga dressed as a man are for an upcoming issue of Japanese Vogue Hommes. According to Gaga’s stylist, Nicola Formichetti, the model’s name is Jo Calderone. Joanne is Gaga’s middle name and the name of her beloved aunt who passed away after battling lupus. Gaga dedicates each show to her. Doesn’t she totally remind you of Ivan? (@mtv)
Lindsay Lohan appears in Double Exposure this week, doing things she did or did not actually do, and maybe flirting with the lady photographer everyone says she’s affairing with, but maybe not.
LiLo is apparently doing a reality show with her Mom, in which we hope she will be making out with lots of girls:
The entire Lohan family (minus Michael of course) is working on a new, currently unnamed reality TV show. Dina’s old show, Living Lohan, featured daughter Ali and youngest brother Cody. (Middle child Michael Jr. keeps a low profile. Does this new show mean he’s ready to go public as a Lohan? There should be some kind of 12-step program for that.) In Living Lohan, Lindsay existed as a specter, someone everyone talked about constantly even as she avoided them. This time around LiLo apparently has no choice but to “appear in some episodes.”

GLEE / MODERN FAMILY:
Wow, I had to wait like 5 years for Friends to go into syndication, but we’re living in an age where half seasons get released on DVD and there are serious dollars to be made so Glee and Modern Family will go into syndication in 2013 on USA and Oxygen. (@nymag)
REAL L WORD:
An op-ed piece in the Christian Post, the writer initially discards the show as your typical reality trashfest, but then zones in on his religious ideals and starts attacking Tracy (TRACY?! That’s like stepping on a kitten!) of all people for her relationship with Stamie and the 3 kids.
One of the three children of Tracy’s new partner is a special needs child, afflicted with Williams syndrome. In addition to “break[ing] stereotypes,” Tracy wants to use the show, in part, to raise awareness of Williams syndrome–a decent purpose with which few would take issue. However, Tracy advocates in a pool of her own irony, while she promotes the physical needs of one child, and ignores the emotional and psychological needs of them all. When children are denied both a mother and a father, we know the statistics — they’re twice as likely to use drugs, 54 percent more likely to use alcohol, 62 percent more likely to have premature sexual activity, twice as likely to commit crimes, 50 percent higher depression and suicide rates, and have higher school drop-out rates, just to name a few things. Try as you might, Tracy, your new family is not “just like everyone else.” You and your partner are intentionally excluding half of humanity from the equation, and the statistics say that your partner’s children will pay the price.
He should look at the recent studies that show children raised by two gay parents turn out super awesome. I think the point of the research he’s referring to has more to say about single-parent households in general, not gay households with two people around. But of course, he won’t see it that way. And somehow I don’t think he’ll find Whitney’s musings on The Power of the Clam entertaining. (@christianpost)
PRETTY LITTLE LIARS:
Check out AfterEllen’s recap of our new favorite guilty pleasure Pretty Little Liars. (@afterellen)
Best known for The Breakfast Club, Ally Sheedy mentioned to a reporter at the LGBT fundraiser, The Trevor Project, that her teenage daughter, Rebecca, has just come out. Interestingly, Ally’s mother is also gay: “”I never thought to myself, I’m going to grow up and fall in love with a man or I’m going to fall in love with a woman because my mother is a lesbian.” Do you think it was awkward when her daughter finally hit upon High Art in her gay movie Netflix queue? (@advocate)
Angelina Jolie on Shiloh’s killer style: “We dress Shiloh like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It’s how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers… Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet ….Goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer. I used to get dressed up in costumes and jump around.” (usmagazine)+
DC Comics has hired a new writer to give Wonder Woman a queer eye makeover and sex her up a bit: “”She’s been locked into pretty much the exact same outfit since her debut in 1941. What woman only wears only one outfit for 60-plus years? I wanted to toughen her up and give her a modern sensibility.” (@bbcuk)
Kristen Stewart debuted new hair on Letterman promoting Twilight: Eclipse. Let’s rate her awkwardness in this appearance on a scale of 1 to 10 and decide she’s adorable anyhow.
Also, Rotten Tomatoes has a list of Kristen Stewart’s ten best films, which doesn’t include lesbian-directed Safety of Objects because the world is a cruel unfair place.
TEGAN & SARA:
The Most Cake interviews Sara Quin on Springsteen, emo and pie. (@tmc)
Auto-friend Erin Foley made this hee-larious audition tape for The Bachelorette.
Young Creature on “The Gay ’90s: Roseanne” “So, I’ve moved into a new apartment and for the first time since 2006, I have cable TV. I’ve reached a new level of laziness, and I love it. AND my new favorite thing to do is making a pot of coffee and watching the mini-Roseanne marathon that comes on every morning on Oxygen Network. If you don’t like Roseanne, I probably will not like you. I totally forgot how crazy gay that show was.”
Have a tip for the next fix? Twitter @jessxnyc!
I don’t know if tv movies count but I was disappointed to not see Speak on the Kristen Stewart list… that part was made for that girl!
I completely agree. I didn’t like the book and I still thought she had a great performance in it.
Can I marry Jo Calderone?
I have always said that I could never actually love someone who doesn’t love Bruce Springsteen as much as I do. It’s a thing; I’ve always said it.
Sara Quin gets it. She gets Springsteen. So naturally, her and I we’re going to love e/o one day.
Unrelated, I have two still-married mostly-straight parents and I am a drug-using alcohol-abusing homo. So um, fuck you the Christian Post. Because as are most of my siblings (I have a lot) as well (on all accounts), so calculate my homo alcoholic drug-loving family into your statistics and take that for a ride.
gaga is a really good looking man.
also that bit about tracy on the real l word is infuriating.
Erin Foley on The Bachelorette would be the best thing ever. I’ve never seen the show but I would definitely watch it if she was on. The doll/child thing freaks me out a little but I could get over that.
I also recently discovered the all-day Roseanne on Oxygen when I was conducting roommate interviews. The only girl to directly notice/acknowledge that Roseanne was on my tv turned the apartment down flat later that day. Clearly she was not a good match. That show was so super gay and awesome.
Lady GaGa in drag is delicious, particularly the top left picture.
Also, what a laugh that the Christian Post writer includes a remark about leaving out ‘half of humanity’. He doesn’t have a shred of it.
Previously I was on the fence about KStew, but I may have just fallen in love a little.
Angelina Jolie= A Model Mom. Let your kids be themselves!!
Can’t wait for the Vanity Fair Aug issue! http://youtu.be/sd9zCihRrsk
Gaga makes a really hot man.
1) why’d the Sheedy gay gene have to skip a generation?? my inner 16 year-old that just discovered the breakfast club is so sad.
2) gaga needs to look like that more often.
3) the roseanne article missed one very big point: darlene’s general queerness. hmmm maybe i need to suck it up and finish that last season or so, even if it’s soul-crushing :/
Christian Post should meet my kid. She’d kick his ass. Just saying.
