Republican Kelly Clarkson Says She’s Voting For Obama — And 18 Other Celebrity Endorsements

‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”

Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.

Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

Neil Patrick Harris Out cover
  • Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend/baby daddy, David Burtka, cover OUT magazine’s annual “Love Issue” and, well, they’re just adorable. Writes NPH in the piece: “I’m not the biggest fan of the word ‘partner’: It either means that we run a business together or we’re cowboys. ‘Boyfriend’ seems fleeting, like maybe we met two weeks ago. I’ve been saying ‘better half’ for as long as I’ve been able to. I think it’s a little self-deprecating and clearly defines that we’re in a relationship, but it would be nice to say ‘my husband.’” [OUT Magazine]

  • The world desperately needs even more “Housewives” spinoffs and that’s why Bravo is bringing us “Motor City Wives,” starring “prominent” women from Detroit. [Madame Noire]

Neil Patrick Harris’ Life Advice: Keep Catching Waves

“Right when ‘Doogie Howser, M.D.’ was beginning, [the show's creator] took my parents and me to a restaurant, sat us down, and said, ‘A career is like surfing. You paddle out and paddle out and get wet and hit by these waves. When you finally get out where you’re supposed to go, you have to sit on a surfboard for a long time, just waiting. If you’re really lucky, you’ll catch a wave, and it’ll be the most amazing feeling. But the key is that that wave will inevitably crash to the sand. Then what you have to do is paddle back out and get hit by a bunch of waves again. But trust that in the long term there will always be waves to catch.’ To a young family from New Mexico, you can imagine our reaction: ‘What the hell is surfing?’ But thinking back, it was a very impressive thing to hear as a kid and, as it turns out, absolutely accurate … It’s good to have a lot of once-in-a-lifetimes in your lifetime. If you get the chance to skydive, go skydiving. If you’re offered a part in a weird Shakespeare play in San Diego, slap on some tights and rock out some iambic pentameter. If you’re offered the opportunity to have a swastika painted on your ass, glitter on your nipples, and to simulate sex with a man and a woman behind a curtain, go for it… provided it’s ‘Cabaret’ on Broadway and not in some dude’s basement.”

Neil Patrick Harris shares with Entertainment Weekly his advice for making it in Hollywood over and over again. But, I really think these are great words of wisdom for anyone in almost any field. I am appointing Neil as my life coach. I hope he takes checks. [EW] Keep reading »

Steve Martin’s Hilarious Oscar Hosting Advice For Eddie Murphy

Awards shows are always a little bit of a hit or miss affair. Jane Lynch happened to be a pretty stellar choice for this year’s Emmys, but we’re feeling kind of meh about the idea of Eddie Murphy hosting this year’s Oscars. Never fear, all-star funny guy Steve Martin is around to offer necessary hosting advice and wisdom. As a part of a hosting duo with Alec Baldwin, Martin killed it, and in an open letter, he gives Murphy everything he needs to know about making it through the four hour mega-show monstrosity. Read the hilarious letter after the jump. Keep reading »

Neil Patrick Harris To Get A Show On The Oprah Winfrey Network?

If what I am about to tell you is actually true, I have far higher hopes for the Oprah Winfrey Network than I did 10 minutes ago. According to the National Enquirer, the amazing Neil Patrick Harris and the Big O are discussing him getting his own talk show on the network. “After their initial conversation, Oprah was intrigued enough to set up two follow-up brainstorming meetings on Skype with Neil,” an insider squealed. “Oprah is mentoring Neil while also trying to bolster her own brand.”

Let me count the ways that I LOVE this idea. Keep reading »

Neil Patrick Harris Rocks The 2011 Tony Awards

I would like to make a case for Neil Patrick Harris hosting, well, every awards show ever. Last night, he helmed the 2011 Tony Awards. Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s “Book Of Mormon” cleaned up, taking home nine awards over the course of the night—but that wasn’t the spectacular part. No, the highlight was Neil’s awesome musical numbers. Above, catch the opening song, in which Neil hilariously welcomes straight people to the theater. “Because Broadway has never been broader/ It’s not just for gays anymore,” he sings before busting out the best line ever, “We’re asking every hetero to get to know us better-o.” The whole number turned out awesome aside from Brooke Shields‘ strange flub.

Oh, and if you didn’t watch the full show, no worries—at the end, Neil did an awesome rap re-capping all the winners and events of the night. Watch it after the jump. Keep reading »
