You guys remember the conservative Christian entertainer who sang that really sweet song a couple of years ago about how awesome it is to get drunk and use another girl and her cherry chapstick as an "experimental game" to titillate your boyfriend? You know the one. She started the Fauxmosexual Revolution. What was her name again? Oh, right — Katy Perry.
Well, in keeping with the ethical example she set with "I Kissed a Girl," Good Christian Gal Katy Perry had a little something to say about that crucifix Lady Gaga taped to her crotch in her "Alejandro" video:
Got that? It’s cheap to use rosary beads as a political statement. But it’s not cheap to use this as the tagline on your Twitter: "i kissed a girl AND diddled her skittle." There’s a difference. One is a fart joke and the other one is — what’s the phrase I’m looking for? — high art.
- So, Glee last night: on a scale of one to bleak, how much did you cry? However many feelings you felt, though, it didn’t even compare to the feelings the folks on Glee felt. In fact, I’ve made a handy little chart to prove it to you. Some simple math will show that at least one person was breaking down in sobs every 45 seconds. And Mr. Schue! What a crybaby!
- Bolstered by the success of the Sex and the City films and her new sitcom, Cougar Town, Courteney Cox has decided she’s ready for that Friends movie. She told the Los Angeles Times:
I wish we could do it with Friends. The thing is, the characters from Sex and the City hopped all over Manhattan. On Friends, we were always stuck in the apartment and that coffeehouse.
It’s probably a good thing they were stuck in that coffee house, actually. Joey would have been hit by a cab for sure.
- AfterEllen favorite Fortune Feimster and comedy duo That’s What She Said (and their dog Edith Piaf) were on this week’s Last Comic Standing, and NBC now has the full episode up online. It’s almost two hours long, so if you just want the lesbian parts — heh, lesbian parts — here are your cue marks: Fortune’s backstory and audition: 17:47, That’s What She Said (and their dog Edith Piaf) audition 31:56, Fortune’s showcase performance 37:29. (If you don’t have time for anything else, cue it up to that last one. I laughed so hard I scared my dog.)
- One More Lesbian is hosting a new web series Out With Dad about a teenager who lives with a single father and is coming of age and coming out of the closet. Check out the first episode at onemorelesbian.com.
TheTorchOnline wants to know who you think is the sexiest woman in fantasy this year. Lucy Lawless in Spartacus? Evangeline Lily in Lost? Zoe Saldana in Avatar? Yvonne Strahovski on Chuck? Voting is open now!
- Autostraddle broke down a new CBS News poll today that reveals that 77 percent of Americans know that they know a gay person, which is 35 percent more people who knew that they knew a gay person in 1992. What does that mean for equality? Well, 43 percent of Americans still think being gay is "wrong." CBS extrapolated some other interesting stats, too. Check out the full results at Autostraddle.
Finally, instead of a hot lady of the day, I need to end this Afternoon Delight with a poll. See, because yesterday I received two emails at the exact same time. One was the digital press kit from Showtime for The Real L Word and one was a link to a BuzzFeed video, and I couldn’t decide which one to open first.
The pile of lesbians:
Or the pile of kittens:
So here’s my question:
Please feel free to weigh in with your whys in the comment. I’ll tell you the results (and my own personal preference) tomorrow!
