Sugarland has released a statement about the tragic stage collapse before their show at the Indiana State Fair last weekend that killed five people, including lesbian activist Christina Santiago. The duo has announced they’ll be holding a private memorial in Indiana in the near future and, in the meantime, will be holding vigil for the victims.

Singer/songwriter Colbie Caillat will guest star on an upcoming episode of The Playboy Club as Lesley Gore. Lesley didn’t come out until later in life, but we all know she’s a lesbian, yes? OK good.

Have you seen Lady Gaga‘s new video for “You and I”? Jo Calderone makes an appearance, and it takes a turn similar to Pink‘s “Sober” if you know what I mean.

Nylon deemed Shay Mitchell Best Dressed at the Teen Choice Awards, and I agree! She’s always looking fierce.

If you watched the new episode of Weeds, you know Zoya (aka Nancy’s lover from the clink) is back. I just wanted to point out how adorable they look together. It’s too bad Nancy is more interested in Demitri. Sigh.

Did you know lesbian musicians aren’t just girls with guitars? It’s true! PopMatters says so.

Last night was the premiere of Our Idiot Brother in L.A. and Rashida Jones and Zooey Deschanel looked lovely, posing with co-star Elizabeth Banks. Elizabeth looks lovely, too — just pointing out the gals who play gay in the film. I saw the film, BTW, and I will have a review for you shortly so you can decide if you want to see it or not come August 26.

Anne Hathaway is so psyched New York has made gay marriage legal. She also says she knows some real life friends like the ones she and Jim Sturgess play in their new film One Day.

I have like a pod now, and we’ve all been in each other’s lives for 10 years — and they don’t admit it, but I have gay friends that I think are secretly in love with each other.

Unrequited love! I don’t think Anne’s the type to say “Hey I know someone you might like! You’re gay, he’s gay — perfect match!” so she might actually know what she’s talking about. Love her.
