Dan Savage on Marcus Bachman, sex and the future of LGBT people and rights



"Look at Marcus Bachmann, Michele Bachmann’s husband. Anybody who has gaydar — anybody who has eyes — looks at him and sees a tormented closet case who has externalized his internal conflict and is abusing other people, doing his reparative-therapy bullshit. It’s so sad and pathetic. A lot of the self-destructive behaviors gay people are prone to drifting into are directed inward, and then you have these shitbags like Marcus Bachmann for whom it’s all directed outward. Marcus Bachmann is the photo negative of the guy on the last bar stool in the gay bar, drinking and smoking himself to death, except instead of destroying himself, he’s destroying other vulnerable queer people in an effort to destroy the queer inside himself."

Lindsay Lohan: "I needed to grow up and London was a better place to do that"



Lindsay Lohan sat down with the Guardian to discuss her run on 'Speed the Plow', living in London, and getting back on track.

A couple of quotes from the interview, which can be read in full here:
On living in London: “In LA I didn’t know what to do apart from go out every night,” she says. “That’s when my friends were free. And I would go out and there would be all these cameras there and that’s when it became difficult.” Lohan has lived in the capital for nine months now, has a lease for another year on her flat in the West End, and is currently planning to make it her permanent home. “I can go for a run here on my own,” she says. “I do every morning, early, and I think how my friends in New York would still be up partying at that time. I needed to grow up and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else.”

Why the Agents of SHIELD characters should be in the movies + the cast went bowling last night




They argue that it'd be strange to not see Chloe in Inhumans after the Skye reveal. They also want Adrianne to be in the movies since Bobbi is an Avenger. They admit it'd be confusing for those viewers who don't watch the show but the MCU TV 'verse will also include Daredevil, Agent Carter, Jessica Jones, and more soon.

Marilyn Manson explains involvement in that messy leaked Lana Del Rey video


Update from this post: Marilyn Manson DENIES involvement in Lana Del Rey video

Key points:

  • Earlier on Marilyn Manson's camp denied Manson's involvement in this video: “Manson did not direct this, shoot it, not was it for a Marilyn Manson video or out-take footage made by him or to be used by him with his music... It must be a fan video splicing up old Manson video footage with someone else’s Lana Del Rey footage.”


  • Now, Marilyn Manson is saying that he didn’t deny his involvement in it. “I just simply said it was not meant to be a Marilyn Manson video,” Manson told NME.


  • The editor of the company that put it out was somebody who's edited my videos, that video was something that was done with a camera that Eli, who's my friend, and I both wanted to test out, so I let him test it out. What they filmed was put in context seemingly as if it were a Marilyn Manson video, and that was in no way the intention.”

Mess all around. SMH @ Lana, Marilyn & Eli. Also sideeyeing Marilyn for working with a production company that calls themselves, Sturmgruppe

Why Marvel Doesn't Need Spider-Man to Make 'Captain America: Civil War’





"Ultimately, bringing Spider-Man into a Civil War movie serves corporate interests more than narrative ones, bringing Spider-Man "back" to Marvel being more of an accomplishment than anything that could be achieved inside the story."

ONTD Original: The 7 Most Overexposed Artists of 2014


2014 will be remembered for its iconic scandals and controversies (probably most notably the Sony Hack), but along the way, the public was greeted with artists being shoved down their throats.

This list is a compilation of the 10 most overexposed artists of 2014, and hopefully they will take a step back in 2015.

ONTD Original: 6 Artists That Helped Make 2014 The Year of Mediocrity In Music..And Why It's Not Bad

Let's be really real real quick. Didn't shit happen in 2014 in music--not a damn thing. So let's not try to act like any of the albums/songs this year smashed. Now that we're being honest with each other, here are 5 artists that helped make 2014 the ultimate year of mediocrity in music, and why it's not necessarily a bad thing in the long run.


6. Sam Smith



Considered by many to be the new soul man, Sam Smith has climbed his way up the charts and into our hearts. Smith was nominated for a Grammy(I don't know how many nor do I care to look it up) and you couldn't listen to the radio this year without hearing him wail through your speakers. Although Smith has made a name for himself in 2014, what is it that makes him stand out? No, I'm asking you....What makes him stand out? I thought so. Nothing makes him stand out. Smith is a man with a warm voice, an inviting familiar Quaker Man face, and lyrics that are easy to relate to....And yet, we were all singing along with him this year.Collapse )


ONTD, are you okay with 2014 being average when it comes to music?

P.S. Don't come into this post with your indie ass bullshit talking about "but this band had a good album". I don't give a shit. I wasn't talking about them. No one has heard of them.

Yonce's influence - D'ANGELO'S New Album Released Tonite




D'Angelo's long-awaited new album is being released TONIGHT at midnight on iTunes. Here's the tracklisting:
1. “Ain’t That Easy”
2. “1000 Deaths”
3. “The Charade”
4. “Sugah Daddy”
5. “Really Love”
6. “Back in the Future (Part I)”
7. “Till It’s Done (Tutu)”
8. “Prayer”
9. “Betray My Heart”
10. “The Door”
11. “Back in the Future (Part II)”
12. “Another Life”

About that album title:
“Black Messiah is a hell of a name for an album. It can be easily misunderstood. Many will think it’s about religion. Some will jump to the conclusion that I’m calling myself a Black Messiah. For me, the title is about all of us. It’s about the world. It’s about an idea we can all aspire to. We should all aspire to be a Black Messiah.

It’s about people rising up in Ferguson and in Egypt and in Occupy Wall Street and in every place where a community has had enough and decided to make change happen. It’s not about praising one charismatic leader but celebrating thousands of them. Not every song on this album is politically charged (though many are), but calling this album Black Messiah creates a landscape where those songs can live to the fullest. Black Messiah is not one man. It’s a feeling that, collectively, we are all that leader.”
