Midweek Video Party: Jennifer Lawrence on Dave, Ellen on Cash Wrap & More

So many funny and strange videos, so little time!


HOW EXCITED ARE YOU ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES? I have tickets for Friday night. Did you know that Jennifer Lawrence is the greatest thing? I bet you already did know. You guys always know this stuff before I do.


Ellen DeGeneres returns to the New Orleans JCPenny store that once employed Ms. DeGeneres. She causes a ruckus and makes me laugh so much that I forgive myself for enjoying a nine-minute commercial:

KONY 2012

This is a video of Jason Russell speaking at Jerry Fallwell’s Liberty University, aka the University of Evil. Queerty’s post about this video was entitled “WATCH: Jason Russell’s Speech At Liberty University Is Gayer Than A Purse Full Of Rainbow-Colored Penisess,” just FYI.


Last night world-famous tennis playing lesbian Martina Navratilova, Dancing With the Stars’ first lesbian contestent, did the foxtrot. The judges on this show make me wish I lived in a private sea colony with enough string cheese to feed me for life, so I couldn’t watch that part, I can only imagine how delighted they were to see her in glitter!

  1. HAHAHA GENOCIDE! Good god, did he really just say “We can have fun while we end genocide…” If only he had been around to stop the Rwandan genocide, then 1994 could have been the most fun year ever…..jebus actually wept!

  2. Can we talk about Jennifer Lawrence for a second? I’ll think I’ve reached the peak of dreamy-eyed sighing in her direction and then she talks about peeing in the woods again and I’m GONE.

  3. i’m glad i’m not the only one who is completely head over heels for jennifer lawrence. adorable AND hilarious AND awkward? be still, my heart!

  4. Yes, Ms. jennifer Lawrence is a major hottie. If y’all haven’t checked her out in “Winter’s Bone” (which I’m sure you have but just in case) do so right away. Very lesbian-ish. Yum.

  5. It takes Autostraddle THAT long to get on the Jlawr adorable train? Come on you guys. But the wait and the squealing was worth it. XD
    I personally ship Jlawr and Kstew for obvious reasons bordering on beauty, awkwardness, personality foils and recently, mild typcasting and now THG destroying the Twilight series.

    And SWATH anyone? (Snow White and The Huntsman)

  6. can we draft Jennifer Lawrence for our queer team? like Dave Chapelle’s old skit about racial drafting? she’s super down-to-earth and humble and not cringe-inducingly self-centered…and okay, yeah, gorgeous. and her character in Winter’s Bone wore a lot of plaid and boots…

    • She was also in “The Beaver” with Jodie Foster. If that’s not enough to earn her at least honorary queer status, I’m not sure what is.
