"Jodie Foster was here. I still am"

By now, you’ve probably watched or at least, heard about Jodie Foster’s acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at last night’s Golden Globes. Today, the internet is a abuzz with reactions to her “coming out” speech. Foster dropped the declaration that we’ve all been waiting for:

“I’m just going to put it out there right, loud and proud … I am, uh, single … I hope you’re not disappointed that there won’t be a big coming out speech tonight. I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the Stone Age. Those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family and co-workers, and then gradually and proudly to everyone who knew her, to everyone she actually met.”

Met, being the operative word, Foster went on to comment on the issue of privacy, joking that nowadays, celebrities are expected to honor the details of their private lives “with a press conference, a fragrance and a prime-time reality show.” Keep reading »

Ever since Amy Poehler and Will Arnett split up (must … hold … back … tears), Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka have ascended the throne to become my #1 Top Favorite Hollywood Couple. Their relationship seems genuine, respectful, and playful, and seeing them with their adorable twins Gideon and Harper make me wish they were my dads. Oh, and did I mention they’re both mad stylish? I’m loving the tailored suits and plaid ties they wore to the White House Christmas Tree Lighting in DC this week. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

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.
