“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 »
The amazing Neil Patrick Harris, who currently stars in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Broadway, isn’t leaving much to the imagination on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone, is he? Unfortunately, the actor was photographed by predatory perv Terry Richardson, which kinda kills my enthusiasm for this shot. Really, RS? Couldn’t you have hired someone else to hang a top hat on Doogie’s dick? [Rolling Stone]
Attention theatre nerds and “How I Met Your Mother” fans, alike. Gather ‘round, my children and see what happened on Thursday night’s episode of “Inside The Actor’s Studio.” In honor of the series finale of “HIMYM” and the Broadway revival of the legendary “Les Mis,” Jason Segel and Neil Patrick Harris performed an impromptu version of “The Confrontation” with Segel singing the part of Jean Valjean and NPH as Javert. Most impressive: they did it a cappella. They are true performers. I feel like this could happen for real. [People]
“Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me. I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I’ve never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really. I’ve lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity — it’s why I like guys. I’m not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself.”
Neil Patrick Harris talks about starring in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Broadway and much, much more in this Out Magazine cover interview. You can always count on NPH to say interesting and provocative things, whether it be that drinking pineapple juice makes him “feel tropical” and makes his “semen taste delicious,” or that playing a character who dresses in drag is triggering his internalized homophobia. “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is one of my all-time favorite plays, and when it ran off-Broadway the first time, I saw it 11 times because it was just so gripping and multi-dimensional for a one-man musical. I agree with creator James Cameron Mitchell, NPH is the ideal person to play the role. I can’t wait to see it. [Out]
Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka and their twins, Gideon and Harper, already won Halloween with their costume earlier in the week, but Neil didn’t lie when he said they were really bringing it on actual Halloween day. You guys get all the extra credit! Also, adopt me, please!

Ever since Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka brought twins Harper and Gideon into their lives, they’ve been going balls out for Halloween.

Any guesses? (And check out their costumes from Halloween 2012 and 2011 after the jump…) [Instagram] Keep reading »
