Gaga’s New Album, Elton’s New Baby – Sunday Funday is a Brand New Gay


If you follow Lady Gaga on Twitter, you probs saw her tweeting about her new single on New Year’s Eve. “Born This Way” will be released on February 13, commence your squealing. Sadly, we have to wait until May for the release of the new album.

Lyrics of the new single include the lines: “I’m beautiful in my way, ’cause God makes no mistakes / I’m on the right track baby, I was born this way / Don’t hide yourself in regret, just love yourself and you’re set / I’m on the right track, baby, I was born this way.” Probs inspired by gay fans, amirite?

Also there was this photo in which she looks like a superhot, naked female version of Bruce Springsteen.

LOOK AT THAT UNICORN. It’s like she can read our hearts. And does anyone know what that tattoo is?


You should read this story about a formerly suicidal kid in Utah who turned out to have really accepting parents and is now the head of the gay-straight alliance at his school. I know Sunday Funday is all about happiness and light, and this has the word suicide in it, but it’s actually really cute and ends well!

Oh, look, here’s another cute story about Utah GSAs. Apparently the clubs are on the rise this year, thanks in part to the ACLU for threatening any Utah school districts that tried to block the GSAs.


Look at that f*cking Anderson Cooper trying to be Rachel Maddow. Or maybe a Williamsburg hipster, idk. Someone needs to tell him that he is neither, and also he looks way hotter sans glasses. Or is that just me?


Elton John and his partner had a baby via surrogate on Christmas Day. (Yes, I picked that link because they make a Two and a Half Men joke.) Of the things I want to do on Christmas, be in labor is not one of them, but congrats to the new dads.


YOU’RE WELCOME. Oh and thanks, Jezebel.

  1. The tat is of a unicorn with ‘Born This Way’ wrapped around it. There are some clearer pics of it hanging around. Also, yay for the ACLU.

  2. “As she did in St. George last year, Ms. Goddard has warned officials that such policies may violate the federal Equal Access Act — a law passed by Congress in the 1980s, mainly to protect Bible study groups in schools, that has become a prime tool for protecting Gay-Straight Alliances from arbitrary hurdles.”

    Best ever. I bet a bunch of the Congresspeople who voted for that one weren’t anticipating they’d be helping out the godless homosexuals.

  3. Um, thank you for that picture of Lady Gaga. *saves* And for the article about Utah, that was really sweet.

    That kitten video uses the music from Finding Nemo, which is just ANOTHER REASON to love it.

  4. KITTY oh that kitten. It reminds me of my own cats, who are Siamese, when they were still kittens. The barefoot person should watch out, though; when my second cat was still a wee snow-white puffball she gave me a scratch down the side of my face. (I did deserve it, though.)

  5. Is it just me or does Anderson Cooper look like Steve Martin in those glasses? Take 6 shots, wait 30 minutes, and squint and you’ll see what I mean.

  6. Elton John’s baby has the same birthday as one of my former synchronized swimming teammates! Aww.

    Although Christmas is a shitty birthday to have.

  7. I liked that story about the kid in Utah and his nice parents. I think it’s really sad that there are other adults at those schools who would rather be bullies than be safety nets for the children in their communities – the children that they’re supposed to be passionate about protecting and teaching – and that those adults would even actively try to destroy the support systems that those kids are brave enough to create for themselves. So, I feel happy for the kid in that story.

    And the KITTEH

  8. Accepting parents and adorable kittens… The collective happiness is giving me a rare warm, fuzzy feeling. Especially that kitten.

  9. AS, your posts are amazing; especially but not limited to those containing kittens.
    That is all.

  10. damn you kitten, you are too cute and this will likely lead to me getting another kitten that my current one will not like.

  11. aw, that was the cutest kitten ever. It made me wish I had known my cat when she was that tiny (I adopted her when she was 9)

  12. I wish more middle-aged lesbians looked like Anderson Cooper.

    I also think more lesbians should be named Anderson.

  13. Watching the impossibly adorable kitten video makes me even more sad that I am rather severely allergic to cats.

  14. Thanks for the link about GSA’s in Utah. I went to school there, and it’s such an insular place…but things change :)
