James Franco: “Maybe I’m Gay”

““It’s funny because the way that kind of stuff is talked about on blogs is so black-and-white. It’s all cut-and-dry identity politics. ‘Is he straight or is he gay?’ Or, ‘This is your third gay movie — come out already!’ And all based on, gay or straight, based on the idea that your object of affection decides your sexuality. There are lots of other reasons to be interested in gay characters than wanting myself to go out and have sex with guys. And there are also lots of other aspects about these characters that I’m interested in, in addition to their sexuality. So, in some ways it’s coincidental, in other ways it’s not. I mean, I’ve played a gay man who’s living in the ’60s and ’70s, a gay man who we depicted in the ‘50s, and one being in the ‘20s. And those were all periods when to be gay, at least being gay in public, was much more difficult. Part of what I’m interested in is how these people who were living anti-normative lifestyles contended with opposition. Or, you know what, maybe I’m just gay.”

Tavi Interviews Gwen Stefani For “Teen Vogue”

Freelance writing may have dried up for a lot of journalists, but the well has not yet run dry for Tavi. The 14-year-old fashion blogger got a gig a million girls would die for interviewing Gwen Stefani about her L.A.M.B. line for Teen Vogue! Writing in the February issue, Tavi initially revealed herself to be wary of celebrity-designed lines. “I can’t say I’m enthusiastic about the recent celebrity-turned-designer trend. In fact, I’m a skeptic,” she wrote. “Too often I feel people are expected to drop a couple hundred dollars just because X celebrity was good in Y sitcom, thus somehow making X’s design abilities top-notch.” Agreed. (Sorry, LiLo, but your products suck.) Keep reading »

Girl Talk: How A Happy Light Saved Me From SAD

After Daylight Saving Time ended in November, the old adage “spring ahead, fall behind” began to ring true. I not only fell behind in projects, socializing, and errands, all I wanted to do was fall asleep. Yoga after work? No energy. Dinner and drinks? No thanks; I’d rather go snooze on my couch. One afternoon, I was sitting at my desk at The Frisky office when I looked out the window and it was pitch black – at 5 p.m. Even though it was so early, I felt anxious, like it was time to go home; I could no longer be productive. The bitter cold outside only made me want to hibernate more. Keep reading »

Why Weather Woman Heidi Jones Lied About Sexual Assault

Why did “Good Morning America” weather woman Heidi Jones lie about an attempted sexual assault in Central Park? Because she wanted the attention.

Jones had claimed she’d been attacked by a man in Central Park while jogging and that bystanders scared him off. Later, she claimed the same man — Hispanic, in his 30s or 40s — showed up outside her apartment building and threatened her by saying, “I know you went to police.” She also claimed the NYPD refused to take her statement when she reported the disturbing events. Presumably, given her public profile, Jones was then given police protection by the NYPD for several weeks; they accompanied her to work, to the movies, and even out walking her dog. But over time, the detectives started to realize her story was not consistent. When confronted, Heidi confessed she “did make this up.” Keep reading »
