Out rocker Jessie J will take the stage during Apple’s iTunes Festival in London. The free concert series will feature more than 60 artists and will take place every night in September at London’s Roundhouse. Note to self: Move to London.

Netflix would like to order more episodes of Arrested Development, if the cast is willing to reprise their roles. Someone needs to convince Portia de Rossi ASAP.

Rooney Mara stars in Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. Check out the film’s intense trailer below.


Lily Tomlin has signed on to star in The Road Home. The comedy is about two friends who “travel to California’s elitist wine country to get wasted and pick up chicks.” Wouldn’t it be awesome if one of the “chicks” they picked up was Tomlin!

Take a gander at the theatrical poster for Girl Most Likely staring Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening and Glee’s Darren Criss. The film hits theaters on July 19.

The Rachel Maddow Show has dramatically dropped in ratings. Yikes! The MSNBC show “delivered its lowest-rated month since it debuted in September 2008.” So it’s up to us, ladies. Make sure to tune in at 9 p.m. to help Maddow’s ratings climb back up.

Glenn Close has joined the cast of Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy.

Tonight tune into Bravo for a new episode of Tabatha Takes Over at 10 pm.

I know this has nothing to do with us gay ladies but Tom Hardy (Inception) has signed on to play Sir Elton John in the rock biopic Rocketman. This casting news weirded me out, so I felt I needed to share this with you all.

Did you know that the iTunes App store is distributing a mobile app for “ex-gay therapy for the confused homosexual on-the-go”? Say, what?! The free app is a product the non-denominational ministry Setting Captives Free.
