No Filter: Evan Rachel Wood Playing PJ Harvey Songs on an Acoustic Guitar is My Actual Sexuality Now

Hello friends and lovers, this week we gather to enjoy the cream of the crop of queer celebrity Instagram. How was your week? I spent most of last week dogsitting for a friend. Their two small dogs barked for ten full minutes if they heard someone coming out of their apartment, if they heard someone walking up the stairs, if someone outside walked past the building, if a car drove by, if a bird flew past the window. I didn’t sleep at all!!!!!!! I’m doin’ great and feeling optimistic about the future!!!

(If you’re wondering why we’re not covering the situation with Demi Lovato here, it’s because addiction is an extremely serious issue and I am respectfully declining to cover it under the Vapid Fluff umbrella.)

As we turn our attention towards the social media presences of our favorite stars, I invite you to use this jealous Holland Taylor tweet and charming Sarah Paulson video as an amuse-bouche.

Because it’s been a rough couple of days, I’m gonna choose this picture of Paris Jackson’s adorable dog to kick off this goddamn day. Look at that dog! It’s so ready to slurp spaghetti Lady and the Tramp style with Paris!

I CANNOT HANDLE HOW SMALL THIS DOG IS (OK, was). Does he even know how small he is?!?!? Does he know?!?!?

I honestly had to sit down for a minute after I heard Evan play “The Desperate Kingdom of Love,” one of my favorite PJ songs. This was a fucked up thing to do to me on a Wednesday afternoon.

If Hayley Kiyoko’s frantic dancing doesn’t put a smile on your face I don’t know what to tell you.

Is there anything this woman cannot do? NO THERE IS NOT.

There’s just a lot going on here, but I’d like to start by asking Gaby what the hell’s going on with this overalls situation.
This is a still from the newest installment of Jurassic World.
Look, we’ve got Danielle Brooks (who’s great) hangin with Janelle Monáe (who is a legend), with Alicia Keys just casually chillin in the background and it seems that for one brief shining moment in time, all was right with the world.

If I don’t have more videos of Hayley Kiyoko dancing for you next week I am going to throw some furniture.

  1. That ERWB post reminded me…

    I once hung out with PJ Harvey and some friends in a pub on Christmas Eve. On the way there my friend called another friend to try to get them to join us, saying “Look I’m giving you a pop star, lesbians and a man with one leg. What more do you want for Christmas?”.

    And then some joking around meant I got a close-up look at Polly’s hands and years later I’m still trying to chill.

    • Haha, thanks for sharing that. I once ran into PJ in the bathroom at some club in LA and I still freak out about it. Of all places to meet PJ! I somehow mustered up the courage to tell her the stall she was headed towards was broken. I’m so cool.

  2. I was really hoping we were going to discuss Rhea’s new hair here… I think finding Tegan and Sara in their Con era really ruined me for life because I’ll always think there’s nothing hotter than a queer with a mullet ?

    • I had that haircut and I can’t count how many times I was like “It’s a shag, not a mullet!” until I was finally like ‘fine, it’s a mullet, I’ll embrace it! “

  3. I pretended Evan Rachel Wood was giving me a personal performance and it completely wrecked me. Fortunately, lesbian Jesus was able to heal me.

  4. ERWB has such a sublime voice. The Evan+Zane cover of Mazzy Star’s “Five String Serenade” is simply beautiful.

  5. It looks to me Alicia Keys is about to pull some moves on the girl next to her, with a casual “Hey girl.” Then pull her sunglasses down to give a flirty wink.
