Jane Lynch and Amy Poehler’s new movie has a trailer, Kristin Chenoweth gets a pleasant surprise, and the best television writers in the word attempt to create a show.
Kristin Chenoweth is on the TV show “GCB,” which means I have an excuse to talk about her.
Lindsay Lohan opens up in a revealing Australian radio interview and Fox News is worried about her breasts, Heather Morris covers Women’s Health, Roseanne’s fascinating New York Magazine article, K.Cheno back on TV and Lady Gaga set for SNL tomorrow.
Every detail you have ever ever possibly thought about wanting to know about the GLAAD Media Awards in LA, updated minute by minute!
People that you care about won awards for things! It’s Queen Latifah’s birthday and also the birthday of 17 Great Dane puppies, like actually for real! And there was a lady on the cover of WIRED Magazine, and also baby elephants, and also straight America is coming around to marriage equality, and hey have we told you yet today that WE LOVE YOU.
Kristin Chenoweth is winning a GLAAD Vanguard Award for her Newsweek response letter and Autostraddle is a part of it.
Kristin Chenoweth does Kathy Griffin: Life on the D-List and Ryan Murphy announced a new musical TV collabo. Plus: Jennifer Beals is rocking Bette Porter power suits in the trailer for Ride-Along, Glee casting news, Real Exploitation on The Real L World?, Allen Ginsberg’s East Village, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the trailer for Burlesque debuts.
Kristin Chenoweth talks to Autostraddle about the response to her Newsweek piece, returning to Glee with Idina Menzel, her brand new ensemble TV project, Promises Promises, her strong Christian beliefs and why she knows Jesus would be totally pro-equality and a friend to the gays.
Alan Cumming’s latest blog post sums up the week perfectly, and addresses perhaps Newsweekgate’s most underasked question: “What is wrong with being effeminate, anyway?” It’s Friday, y’all. Let us praise ye wise men who know “queeny” isn’t even a word, give you some wisdom and share some of our favorite videos; Kurt’s Turn in Glee, Adam Lambert goes crazy, Alan Cumming emcees, Rickie finds World Happiness and Peter Paige finds Emmet’s truth.
GLAAD asks Newsweek for apology over Seetodeh’s gays-can’t-play-straight piece! Why do we still care? Because, believe it or not, this isn’t even the worst thing he’s written about gay people for Newsweek, just look at the victim-blaming hate-crime cover story! Anti-DADT empirical research is on YouTube and they’re dancing, Happiness without perfection, what your server is thinking about your date, and a Catholic university isn’t hiring a lesbian.
GLEE Creator Ryan Murphy backs up Kristin Chenoweth and calls for a boycott of Newsweek until Setoodeh apologizes — and invites him to come on set. Also, Ramin Setoodeh has responded to the “internet backlash” and Kristin Chenoweth’s response to his homophobic article “Straight Jacket” in Newsweek and unsurprisingly, all he really does is dig himself even deeper. We break it all down for you. Lots of feelings on this one.
Remember that Newsweek article from last week, when Ramin Setoodeh declared ‘gay actors can’t play straight’? Well, Kristin Chenoweth, currently starring on Broadway in “Promises, Promises” with Sean Hayes, has a lot of feelings about it too — and she’s speaking out against the homophobic article and defending gay actors.
