Sir Elton John is worried about Lady Gaga‘s health. In a recent interview, the flamboyant singer shared his concern for his son’s godmother:

I look at Gaga and I think, “How does she do it?” I talk to her mum and dad about it. They worry. She is frail, and she doesn’t eat when she should, and she’s a girl, and it’s tougher for a girl. She works really hard. She will be in Denmark one night and Saudi Arabia the next. I know how tiny she is and I do worry about her, yes.

Hermione Granger, err I mean Emma Watson, hangs out of a lot of cars in the below trailer for The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Remember, kids, always buckle your seat belt!


Kristen Stewart shares the cover of Vanity Fair with an adorable pooch. Is it just me or does that dog look bored?

The ever iconic Grace Jones took the stage with hula hoop to perform “Slave to the Rhythm” during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert. Jones scares me.


In 2009, 17-year-old Brittany McMillan conceived “Spirit Day,” asking supporters of the LGBT community wear purple on October 19 to take a stand against bullying. McMillan’s efforts have made her one of five finalists to win a $20,000 college scholarship from Seventeen magazine. If McMillan wins she’ll also be on the cover of October’s Seventeen. (Just in time for Spirit Day.) If you have a few spare moments please vote for McMillan.

Congratulations to our very own Trish Bendix who made Frisky’s list of “26 women to follow on Twitter.” (I was number 27.)

Yesterday the award-winning indie queer film Tomboy was released on DVD. To order your copy head over to Wolfe Video.
