Resident bae and boyfriend of your dreams Robbie Rogers talks about life, soccer and his memoir

RobbieRogers

Rogers is thankful that although he too is a high-profile LGBT athlete he hasn't endured the same constant spotlight as Michael Samn which has allowed him to keep a stronger and undiluted focus on soccer.

"I like quietly being part of the Galaxy and being just one of the guys,"
"I realize there is a role I play in the LGBT community and being a role model – especially with our youth – which I enjoy as well. But I very much enjoy playing soccer."

He also talked about his new memoir (in stores 25th of November) and what you can expect from it:

"We got to tell the story we wanted to tell. You find out a lot more – there are chapters that Greg (boyfriend) won’t read. You’ll find out about my time in London and coming out and being back in the locker room as an openly gay soccer player. It was very therapeutic for me to write it and to go through all those emotions again and hopefully it will help people."

Queen of Europe Conchita Wurst meets UN secretary-general Ban Ki Moon

UN secretary-general praises Conchita's fight against discrimination and intolerance

conchitakimoon

The winner of Eurovision 2014, Conchita Wurst met with secretary-general of the UN Ban Ki Moon in Vienna on Nov. 3rd and he praised her fight against intolerance and discrimination

Last May Conchita Wurst won Eurovision and dedicated her win to "everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom".



Ban Ki Moon is obviously a Conchita fan, when they met he said:

"This year I extended benefits to same-sex partners of U.N. staff members... Discrimination has no place in the United Nations," Ban said to applause from officials, dozens of whom crowded round to get a picture with or autograph from Wurst.

"When I heard that she won this Eurovision song contest I immediately knew that she was a star of the world," Ban said.


Conchita's Eurovision win was infamously not popular with some people (mostly Russian politicians). Her words to the assembly in Vienna were:

Wurst, addressing Ban and U.N. officials on Monday, again urged tolerance. "You just can be respected if you respect others,"

Behind the Box Office: What Influences the Films We See

  • From Trailers on Youtube

  • From asking the 5 Ws

  • (including things like 'Why is this movie called _____?')

RiRi tries her best at looking awful

Rihanna jets into LAX completely covered up in a shapeless, ankle-length hoodie dress



The 26-year-old "Birthday Cake" chanteuse returns to LA after slaying at Concert for Valor and taking some cute pics with fans at a meet & greet. She tried her best at looking unsexy with a baggy DKNY dress and some god-awful Marc Jacobs sneakers, but still managed to look flawless.

Where does she live, anyway? LA or NY?

'Playing It Cool' (Your New Favorite Chris Evans Film) Will Hit Theaters Early 2015



If the great Korean trailers showcasing Chris Evans as a woman, a space wizard, and a sailor hyped you enough for this cinematic masterpiece, you will now get the chance to see the movie on the big screen. When the film was recently acquired by Vertical Entertainment for United States distribution they aim to also have the movie released by early 2015, so that means you are a couple months away from seeing the new Walter Mitty. Playing It Cool is "the story of Chris Evans (Captain America), a young man disillusioned by love, who meets a breathtaking young woman, Michelle Monaghan (That one girl from those movies), at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist. Only one problem: she’s engaged. Yet, he engages into a platonic relationship to be able to keep seeing her." It also stars Ioan Gruffudd (Reed Richards), Topher Grace (Venom), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), and Aubrey Plaza (Grumpy Cat).

Katie Holmes on 'Miss Meadows' sex scene; "I thought that was really funny"




“Miss Meadows… this was her first experience, so I thought it was funny to watch someone of her age kind of go through that and get a kick out of it. She really got a kick out of it, and I thought that was really funny. You don’t really think about somebody getting a kick out of it. It’s usually something else."

ABC PULLS 'SELFIE' FROM LINEUP

ABC has decided that it would like to torture us all some more by pulling 'Selfie' from it's Tuesday night lineup. In their infinite wisdom, they have replaced it with an episode of 'Shark Tanks' because I guess they do their audience research through IMDb message boards or something.

This means that the remaining episodes of this amazing show will probably not be aired for a long time (they are awaiting confirmation on whether or not they will be aired at all).

I guess now they can focus more time and energy into repeating storylines on 'Modern Family' and high-fiving the OUAT writers every time they assassinate our beloved childhood heroes and ignore past character development and basic plot construction.

RIP this amazing show.
