Last Week Was Awesome For Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris’s autobiography has been out for a week and, for shame, I missed it. Let me say this: It sounds way more engaging that Karl Ove Knausgaard’s 3600-page My Struggle, not least inasmuch as it is a (semi-) non-fiction choose-your-own adventure book in which you, as Harris, can, for example, choose to audition or not to audition for “Doogie Howser, MD,” and as the book’s description states, “get into a bizarre confrontation outside a nightclub with actor Scott Caan.”

Last week was a big one for Harris: His autobiography was released on Tuesday, and on Wednesday it was announced that he’ll be hosting the Oscars in 2015. Can you EGOT hosting? All he needs are the Grammy Awards. [Nerdist; Playbill; Huffington Post]

Give me a holler on Twitter.

Neil Patrick Harris Will Host The 2015 Oscars!

  • Neil Patrick Harris is set to host the 2015 Academy Awards. He’s performed at the awards before but this will be his first time hosting. He’s already been the host at two Emmy broadcasts and four Tony Awards broadcasts. Can’t wait! [TV Line]
  • Chris Brown took it upon himself to comment on a disease mercilessly leading thousands upon thousands of people to painful, isolated deaths by tweeting ”I don’t know … But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. Shit is getting crazy bruh.” Headdesk. He followed up with another tweet that said, “Let me shut my black ass up.” [Death + Taxes] Keep reading »

Neil Patrick Harris On Keeping Longterm Love Alive

If you want relationships to last, live by “for better or worse.” Honeymoon phases end. They just do. We’re animals, and animals aren’t inclined to copulate with just each other for the rest of their lives. So here’s a challenge: How do you keep redefining your relationship? I think you have to find new elements that turn you on, and not only sexually. Having kids was one of those great moments for me. Watching David become another level of person, mastering this other domain, made me look at him with a whole other set of appreciative eyes. That sort of made me re-fall in love with him. That’s another important thing to realize. Everyone falls out of love with everything. You fall out of love with your house. You fall out of love with your job. You just have to figure out ways to keep [the love] alive.

I am loving Neil Patrick Harris‘ interview in Glamour‘s September issue, and this quote about his marriage to David Burtka especially resonates with me. In friendships, work, relationships, and everything else, there seems to be a common belief that if something isn’t fun all the time, it’s not working. Life takes effort sometimes, and that’s the part we never see in romantic comedies. I really admire Neil for being upfront about that. Even though he lives right in the middle of the faux glitz of Hollywood, he always finds a way to be down to earth. [Glamour, Queerty] [Image via AKM-GSI]

Oh You Fancy, Huh? Fish Are Now Receiving Acupuncture Before Becoming Your Sushi

After reading about Katy Perry, Neil Patrick-Harris and David Burtka‘s recent sushi meal at Park Restaurant in Montreal, I remain more fascinated by their fare than by the fact that Katy hangs with NPH and David. Why? Because their sushi was acupuncture-treated before it became their dinner. Keep reading »

“Girls” Star Andrew Rannells To Take Over For NPH In “Hedwig And The Angry Inch” On Broadway

  • Andrew Rannells, who plays Hannah’s gay ex-boyfriend on “Girls,” is headed to Broadway! In August, he’ll take over for Neil Patrick Harris in the starring role in “Hedwig And The Angry Inch.” NPH recently won a Tony for playing a transgender East German rock singer. [Variety]
  • New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is the worst, but I suppose his “Evolution Of Dad Dancing” video with Jimmy Fallon might be funny. [YouTube]
  • Mila Kunis is fully prepared for her vag to be “ripped apart and shredded” by childbirth. [Marie Claire]
  • The bell hooks hotline: for times when you’d rather not give out your real phone number to pushy dudes. [The Hairpin] Keep reading »

I Adore The Way “Humans Of New York” Covered Celebs At The Met Gala

Humans Of New York,” a collection of street-style photos and interviews gathered throughout the city, is one of my favorite blogs in the world. I love how refreshingly honest and vulnerable it is in capturing people’s stories. Apparently, I’m not the only one — Vogue invited HONY creator Brandon Stanton to cover the Met Gala. Stanton usually photographs everyday people, so at the Met, he treated his celebrity subjects just like any other New Yorker he’d stop on the street. His street-style photos of the event are presented the same way his everyday photos are : captioned by a simple quotation without the subject’s name. Keep reading »
