Cher Says 'My People Won't Believe' Donald Trump's Pro-LGBTQ Rhetoric

Ron Dicker | August 24, 2016 | Queer Voices
Cher doesn’t buy that Donald Trump really wants to help the LGBTQ community.  The singer and gay icon couldn’t hold in her laughter on Tuesday when MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell asked her to comment on Trump’s promise to protect the community after June’s mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. “He’s the most disingenuous man I’ve ever seen,” she said on “Last Word.” “And I want to tell you, my people will not believe him for a minute.” Cher, a Hillary Clinton supporter who has ripped Trump’s presidential bid before, noted in the interview that the GOP nominee met with anti-gay evangelicals this month, leading her to wonder how he could pledge to look out for gay people. The Donald’s way of saying “LGBTQ” doesn’t do much for her either. “He says those letters like a child that’s just learning the alphabet,” she said.  Cher also bashed Trump ― and his “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan ― at a Clinton fundraiser in Provincetown, Massachusetts, over the weekend.  “He means we want to make America straight and white,” she said. H/T Uproxx Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the...

'Friends' Star Reveals Major Plastic Surgery Regret

Yagana Shah | August 24, 2016 | Fifty
Thanks to the hit TV series “Friends,” which first aired in 1994, Courteney Cox and the show’s other five stars have been in the limelight for more than two decades. No doubt that kind of stardom brings a lot of pressures. Opening up on Monday’s episode of “Running Wild with Bear Grylls,” Cox talked candidly about growing older in the public eye.  Grylls asked if she felt “pressure to look a certain way” in Hollywood. “Yeah, for sure,” The 52-year-old replied. “Just being a woman in this business ... getting older is not the easiest thing. But I have learned lessons. I think I was trying to keep up with being older ... it’s something you can’t keep up with.” Cox has talked openly in the past about her use of cosmetic procedures including Botox and lasers to “prolong to inevitable.” “If it makes you feel better about yourself and it’s done properly, then fine,” she said in 2011. But since then, it seems she’s changed her tune. Though Hollywood ― and social media trolls, she says― can make her feel “bad about myself,” she says her new outlook is to let nature take its course. “Just let it be,” she told Grylls. “I have done things that I regret, and luckily they’re things that dissolve and go away, so that’s good, because that’s not always been my best look,” she said in reference to her use of cosmetic procedures.  Referring to her efforts to look more youthful, Cox aded that “You find yourself trying, and then you look at a picture of yourself and go ‘Oh, God, I look horrible’.” (Cox’s “Friends” co-star Jennifer Aniston has previously spoken out against Botox, saying it only makes actresses look “older” and “insecure.”) The actress appeared makeup-free as she trekked into a remote part of Ireland with the TV host. “For what it’s worth, the natural you is just amazing and gorgeous,” Grylls said.  We couldn’t agree more. There’s nothing more beautiful than aging...

Dwayne Johnson And His Daughter Will Make Your Heart Melt

Jenna Amatulli | August 24, 2016 | Entertainment
The Rock is #dadgoals. We’re finding new reasons to fall in love with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on the daily, but this one really takes the cake.  In an Aug. 23 Instagram post, the new dad posted a video of himself playing with his daughter, Jasmine, who uses the top of Johnson’s head as a drum while music plays in the background. “Finally, my big head is used for more than just a place to hang my hat,” he wrote in his caption. “The joys of being home w/ my ohana and playin’ one of our fav games — slap daddy’s head ‘til I can see his big scary face.” Finally my big head is used for more than just a place to hang my hat.😉 The joys of being home w/ my ohana and playin' one of our fav games - slap daddy's head 'til I can see his big scary face. Song playing in the background is "O Tiare" (Justin Young). A song I started singing to her every day since she was one week old. Samoan lyrics are beautiful, "Ia alofa le Atua, ma tausi ia te 'oe..." which translates to "may God take loving care of you". When Jasmine learns to talk, I'm sure she'll ask me to please stop singing😂. I must now go do something very manly and bad ass to counterbalance this post. #Ohana #Aiga #Grateful #SlapDaddysHeadCauseItsABigToy A video posted by therock (@therock) on Aug 23, 2016 at 2:27pm PDT The soundtrack to their game is also special, explained Johnson, who is half-Polynesian. The song “O Tiare” is a Samoan one that he has been singing to his daughter since she was a week old. “When Jasmine learns to talk, I’m sure she’ll ask me to please stop singing,” Johnson wrote, in true dad fashion. “I must now go do something very manly and badass to counterbalance this post.” We’re not crying ― you’re...
