When I came out as a lesbian, my mom cited my rabid N’Sync fandom as evidence that I was obviously mistaken. She was certain that my liking a group of effeminate, nearly prepubescent boys, gyrating to songs about feelings was indicative of my heterosexuality. I’ve used that story as the punch line to my coming out for years. But just recently, I’ve found myself yet again defending my sexual preferences to my own peers in light of some my pop culture life choices, namely “Magic Mike.”
I’m going to go right out there and say it: Channing Tatum is a rhythmic god. Don’t pretend you don’t like dance movies, specifically “Step Up,” or that you haven’t spent time in front of the mirror trying to perfect your own moves after seeing him effortlessly slide across that stage and into the laps of awaiting women. And, sure, maybe my seeing a movie about male strippers multiple times seems a little suspect, seeing as the audience was predominately straight women acting as though they were at the bachelorette party of their lives.

Jenna showed off her growing belly, the twosome did some kayaking, and generally showed everyone on the beach how to be the cutest couple ever. Way to go, you two. Keep reading »
Ugh, these two. I mean “ugh” in a good way because they are so cute. Channing posted this photo of him hugging on newly pregnant wife Jenna Dewan on Christmas, the two sporting matching baseball caps. Normally, I would think that was cheesy, but these two make it work. What are the chances that little bun in the oven will grow up and star in “Step Up 27″? I can only hope.
There were a lot of moments in 2012 that stood out, that burst forth, rose in prominence and were hard to ignore. These 12 moments in celebrity bulges were our favorites. We hope they’re swelling with pride.
The current issue of Us Weekly features the cover story, “Channing and Jenna Are Having A Baby.” The Magic Mike star, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum confirmed to the magazine that after three years of marriage they are expecting their first child together.
