Yes, looking at a butt selfie from Kim Kardashian is entertainment and sure, we need the escape sometimes, but I'm wondering if our society can make a little 2014 New Year's resolution: have a little more balance. Maybe a little less coverage of her and a bit more of someone we can relate to and learn from.
Christian shares what it's like for him to be a straight actor who is a gay icon and how that has impacted his career. He also discusses why it's easier today for straight actors to play gay roles in movies and television.
It was a good year for the weirdos.
With "Scandal," so much goes on in any given episode and even though we're prepared to be shocked, I'm always surprised by how buggy my eyes get, how much more my mind is blown, and how stunned into silence I am. What do the kids say? YOLO?
I know there is a segment of the population that has expressed intense concern over vaccines in general and that this is an emotional issue for some. But based on the science, my personal view is that the benefits of the HPV vaccine far outweigh its risks.
Today is my 97th birthday. I am a lucky man. I've been married to my wife, Anne, for 60 years and she continues to captivate me. When you get to be 97, you can reflect on the lessons you've learned in almost a century of life.
Miley Cyrus and Kanye West came up short when the Grammy nominations were announced. Did the year's most popular music stars kill their own chances?
This week I talked with 21-year-old singer Jonathan Allen, who touched our hearts singing his way into the semifinals on America's Got Talent. His audition performance has been called the most emotional audition ever in the show's history.
The media response to British Olympic diver and teen pin-up Tom Daley announcing this week that he is in a relationship with a man only confirms why we need more coming-out narratives.
I didn't know Bob Dylan was black. And knew what we thought or felt. I'm not offended that he said what he said, but I'm a wee bit miffed that he felt he had the right to speak for blacks, Serbs and Croats with such authority.
Any other female performer who refused to share any of her personal life (or personality, really) would quickly be branded with quite different labels than the ones we have reserved for Queen Spears. Today being guarded is understood as "closed-off" or "robotic." The inability to present oneself as vulnerable is seen as "inauthentic." For Spears, that same behavior is untouchable.
Historically, gay men have engaged in intergenerational relationships -- among consenting adults -- probably more than straight people have. One reason is that we've had to find each other and teach each other about ourselves, and often that's been about older people teaching younger people.
Actress and singer America Olivo (NBC's upcoming Chicago PD, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark) certainly knows about that, being a multi-racial mix of Chilean, Basque, Spanish, Italian, Irish and Belgian.
Tom Daley could have come out by doing a magazine interview, holding hands with his boyfriend in public or writing a book. It doesn't matter how he did it; he did it in the way he wanted to, and in my opinion he did it really well. His video is beautiful, honest, personal, inspiring and emotional.
It was a big weekend with the Thanksgiving holiday and for the first time I can recall, many of us also celebrated Hanukkah. I love this time of year filled with tradition, gathering together and sharing.
With all the poppin' Molly references, sippin' syrup advocacy, swimming in pools of alcohol advertising, and chronic weed abuse promotion that hip hop has become the modern day vehicle for, it's refreshing to see health addressed positively from icons of Jay Z and Beyonce's status.
After the last two episodes of "American Horror Story: Coven" nearly lulled me into a coma (except for the always-stellar work of the veteran cast), finally, finally, everything is starting to make sense.
Camille Claudel 1915 is a testimony to Binoche's enormous talent, much as was the film that put Binoche in the international spotlight: Kieslowski's Blue, a similarly emotionally raw story about a woman going through extreme bereavement.
