Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion) doesn’t think the world is ready for a gay rapper. In an interview with The Guardian, Snoop said, “I don’t have a problem with gay people. I got some gay homies. Yeah, for real. People who were gay used to get beat up. It was cool to beat up on gay people back then. But in the 90s and 2000s, gay is a way of life. Just regular people with jobs. Now they are accepted, not classified. They just went through the same things we went through as black. Frank Ocean ain’t no rapper. He’s a singer. It’s acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don’t know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine. It’s like a football team. You can’t be in a locker room full of motherfucking tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, ‘Hey, man, I like you.’ You know, that’s going to be tough.” (Dear Snoop, It was never “cool” to beat up gay people, or anyone else for that matter. Love, Bridget.)
Out actress Fiona Shaw is playing the mother of all mothers, Mary, in Broadway’s The Testament of Mary. The play is co-created by Shaw and director Deborah Warner and is based on Colm Toibin’s novel of the same name.
Jessica Chastain and Emma Stone will join forces for the horror film Crimson Peak.
In the best news ever, my BFF (in my mind only) Judge Judy has been renewed through 2017. The CBS show averages 9 million viewers per day (I’m included in that number) and will remain on the small screen for at least 21 seasons. You go girl!
Anna Camp will reprise her role as conservative Sarah Newlin on HBO’s True Blood. (I wonder how she’ll deal with her preacher ex-husband becoming a gay vampire.)
Speaking of True Blood, US magazine snagged a photo of Anna Paquin and her seven month old twins out and about in Venice, CA.
Sigourney Weaver was honored during the Geeks OUT gala. Although Weaver was not in attendance, she sent this message, “I am extremely touched and thrilled to be honored by Geeks OUT as a queer geek icon and muse. It means so much to me that my work has been relevant and encouraging to the LGBT community. I support each and every one of you to be exactly and gloriously who you are and all you can be. The planet needs your individuality and talent and power to make it a more humane and respectful and fantastic place, where everyone is valued and celebrated equally. So rock on and geek out, my friends.”
