Meet Sean Bishop And Taylor Knuth, One Of The Couples That Got Married At The Grammys Last Night

I was traveling last night, so I missed most of the Grammys. I tuned in for about four minutes, in which I caught 34 couples getting married by Queen Latifah. It was like one of those strange, “Wizard of Oz”-type dreams that would be hard to explain: “It was the Grammys and Madonna was there and Macklemore and it was a giant wedding!”

Yeah right. But really. That happened. The Grammys went there. And it was pretty amazing.  Keep reading »

Better Just Stick To Country Music — OK, Dolly?
  • Dolly Parton is a goddess who can do no wrong. But, um, this clip of her rapping on “The Queen Latifah Show” wearing a blonde Afro wig is cringe-inducingly awkward. Just stick to country — OK, Dolly? I hope voicing this opinion won’t halt invitations to special Dolly/Latifah girly brunches. [Entertainment Weekly]
  • “Masters Of Sex” star Lizzy Caplan and “Friends” star Matthew Perry  — who I didn’t even know were a couple — quietly split up last year.  [US Weekly]
  • Earlier this week, two tween girls in Florida were charged with aggravated stalking for their treatment of Rebecca Sedwick, a 12-year-old girl who committed suicide in September. Thirteen-year-old John Borgen had dated Rebecca and then dated one of the girls accused of viciously cyberbullying her and telling her to die. John said he had no idea Rebecca was being cyberbullied by the girls, ages 14 and 12. Those girls’ identities are being withheld by police because of their ages. [ABC News]
  • Gossip blog HollywoodLife.com is claiming, apparently falsely, that Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were broken up when he died this summer from a drug overdose. [Gossip Cop] Keep reading »

Watch ’90s Will Smith, Ice-T & Queen Latifah Rap About Earth Day

"Stop pollutin', fool, inspect your dome."

Guys, the ’90s! The best! Here’s a clip from a 1990 Earth Day special, featuring, oh, basically everyone who was famous in the ’90s. While the entire special is about an hour long and features everyone from Neil Patrick Harris (NPH 4 LYFE) to Danny Devito, the Cosbys and the stars of “Thirtysomething,” we thought this Earth Day rap section was tops. In it, future movie/TV stars like Will Smith, Ice-T and Queen Latifah offer up their best environmentally-friendly rhymes. Did you want to see Heavy D rap about dying fish? Will Smith postulate on paint? Kid ‘n’ Play speak out about war (and garbage)? Tone Loc talk about used batteries? Yes, this video is all that and more. [Mental Floss]

And oh yeah, for 10 things you can do for Earth Day check out this list!

Will It Do Justice To The Original?

Question: can Lifetime really call their remake — featuring an all black cast — of the ’80s classic “Steel Magnolias” an “original movie”? Because the story line and all the dialogue appears to be exactly the same. This time around, the movie stars Queen Latifah (M’Lynn), Alfre Woodard (Ouise, still in a bad mood for 40 years), Phylicia Rashad (Clairee), Jill Scott (Truvy), Adepero Odoye (Annelle), and Condola Rashad (Shelby, who still has diabetes). Unless Shelby remarkably lives at the end, I don’t think you can call this movie original or particularly necessary. Thankfully, I don’t need either to be inclined to watch! [Blackbook]

Queen Latifah & 10 Other Celebs Who Came Out And The World Replied, “No, Duh.”

Is Queen Latifah finally coming out of the closet? The longtime rumored lesbian — who has never publicly identified as gay or straight, but has been legally testy when it comes to the former — is set to headline Los Angeles’ Gay & Lesbian Pride Festival on May 19. The press release underscores Queen’s membership in the community. Via Vibe

From hip to R&B, pop to standards, Queen Latifah is the voice of our generation, and her concert here will be phenomenal, for her to make her worldwide Pride debut here in Long Beach is a tremendous testament to the popularity of our celebration and to the strength of our community.

It’s not quite an all-caps announcement on the cover of People, but maybe Latifah is saving that pronouncement for on stage. While I totally commend Latifah for her participation in the event and will be stoked if she officiallyofficially comes out as a proud gay woman, I suspect I’ll be one of many uttering a loud “duh.”

If this happens, Queen Latifah would join a long line of celebrities who came out of the closet to the shock of no one except maybe their most deeply in denial fans. Click through this slideshow of famous gays and lesbians whose coming out was met with a collective yawn.

Queen Latifah Releases A Just-Okay Lifestyle Brand With HSN

Queen Latifah has possessed a powerful image since the 1980s. Who can forget the impact of a female MC donning queen-like garb — leather Africa medallions, Nefertiti-esque hats, and other Afro-centric attire? But, still, we would never argue that she’s a fashion icon. So we’re kind of surprised she, too, has a lifestyle brand with HSN. Literally every celebrity has a fashion or lifestyle collection, causing our heads to spin around and question what it means to be an actual fashion designer. Keep reading »

Evening Quickies: Queen Latifah Joins “Dancing With The Stars”

  • Queen Latifah will join Rob Kardashian (!), Snooki (!!!) and Kristin Cavallari (roll eyes) for the next season of “Dancing With The Stars.” Even though I thought Queen Latifah was above “DWTS,” she’s going to dominate! [TMZ]
  • Grazia magazine confessed to Photoshopping Kate Middleton’s already twig-like torso for its special royal wedding issue in April. In the confusing statement, the magazine said, “[Grazia] would like to reassure all our readers that we did not purposely make any alternations to the Duchess of Cambridge’s image to make her appear slimmer, and we are sorry if this process gave that impression.” [Fashionista]
  • Speaking of Kate, her Hollywood doppleganger Anne Hathaway praised the princess for dressing “like a lady” and said she’s grateful to her for “making looking appropriate really fun again.” [Celebuzz]
  • Peeps are not happy this model looks like she’s masturbating in Calvin Klein’s Forbidden Euphoria ad. [ONTD]

Queen Latifah Finally Comes Out

“I just like ladies who have class. Period. And if it’s ‘T and A’ you’re sellin’, that’s fine, as long as that’s what you’re selling. But you don’t have to show everything, you know? You can hold some back and just be yourself and let your personality shine and let your individuality show. To me, that’s sexier. A confident woman is a sexy woman, in my opinion.”

Queen Latifah tells Sister 2 Sister magazine what kind of ladies she likes. This is significant because (A) Queen Latifah is amazing, and ladies should have some info on what reels her in and (B) because she’s never discussed her sexuality before. After years of dodging questions, especially since the speculation about the split between her and longtime girlfriend Jeanette Jenkins, props to Queen Latifah for opening up about her love for ladies. It’s not that I think a celebrities’ sexuality is any of our business. It’s just that the choice to be open about it — as a human being — is a powerful one. Queen Latifah is a role model for many women. I believe her decision to come out will only continue to inspire them. [Tabloid Prodigy] Keep reading »
