9 Celebs Who Won’t Get Married Until Gay Marriage Is Legal

Jason Mraz may have asked his girlfriend Tristan Prettyman to marry him, but they won’t be setting a date anytime soon. Why? Because Jason feels strongly about waiting until gay couples are able to tie the knot before doing it himself. “We both feel that in our engagement, we have a union that’s really special and cant be broken. It’s a sacred bond,” he said. “The wedding would be nice for our family, our friends, our community — our moms especially — and so it puts us in the fight. We can’t get married until [gay] marriage is legal and equal. … I think giving people the right to marry will be a huge movement in civil rights.” [Huffington Post]

Making statements like this has become de rigueur among celebrities. After the jump, more stars who won’t say “I do” until Congress, or at least state legislatures, say that gay couples can marry too.

Avril Lavigne Still Doing The Bratty Badass Teenager Thing


Avril Lavigne’s back with a video for her new single, “What The Hell,” a product placement-happy joy ride in which the punk-pop princess — now 26 — tries to outrun (and outdrive) her super hot, Brody Jenner-esque plaything. Why? I’m not entirely sure. We see Avril in her skivvies, playing basketball, and driving a taxi cab, before she finally hides out in a boutique which conveniently sells her own line of clothing, Abbey Dawn. I was never an Avril fan to begin with and I suppose it’s fool on me for thinking her musical stylings would mature into deeper territory, but, like, is there still a market for this? My head hurts.

James Franco Lets It Slip That He Has A Sex Tape

“I think if anybody who has made a home sex tape knows, what feels best doesn’t always look best. I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, oh, that looks horrible… You have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just doing it, they’re really selling it.”

James Franco really understands how complicated making a sex tape actually is. I completely agree with James. I mean, for example, I personally am a fan of doggystyle, but on tape? Well, let’s just say it does not look so cute — WAIT, WTF?!?! James Franco made a sex tape? Where is it? Need. To. See. Now. [Newsweek] Keep reading »

WTF: Iran To Ban Female Soccer Fans From Live Broadcasts

Women in Iran are already banned from watching soccer matches in stadiums, and pending government approval, Iranian women may soon be banned from watching soccer games aired live in movie theaters because it increases the likelihood of “inappropriate behavior,” i.e. sexy-sexy-time. A state police agency called for the ban, which will restrict women from congregating in mixed-gender theaters in major cities to watch the games, as is popular in Iran. Frankly, I’m surprised that women were even watching soccer matches alongside men in the first place, given how intermingling of the sexes is verboten. We hope that if the ban goes through, women are given their own movie theaters in which to watch games. Anything else would be sexism, pure and simple. But considering Iran already has a crap record for women’s rights, I’m not counting on it. [CNN] Keep reading »
