Afternoon Delight: Beyoncé’s upcoming record is leaked, a new trailer for “Pariah”

Happy birthday to Natalie Portman! The Black Swan actress turns 30 today.

On Tuesday Beyoncé‘s new album, 4, was leaked on the Internet. The album was scheduled to be released on June 28 and a disappointed Beyoncé reached out to her fans via Facebook, “My music was leaked and while this is not how I wanted to present my new songs, I appreciate the positive response from my fans. When I record music I always think about my fans singing every note and dancing to every beat. I make music to make people happy and I appreciate that everyone has been so anxious to hear my new songs.”

I’m sorry to hear about Beyoncé’s leakage.  (Actually, that’s not true, I just wanted to write the word “leakage.”)

Check out the new trailer for Pariah! I’m so excited to see it on the big screen, hopefully sooner than later!


Easy A actress Emma Stone graces the cover of Elle magazine’s July issue.  (She looks like Michelle Williams at the 2006 Oscars.)

Stone revealed that while growing up, she focused more on male actors than female (she idolizes Steve Martin, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin), talked about how she embraced her awkward teen years (my teen years sucked!) and says that if you have a crazy sense of style (a la Lady Gaga) you should embrace it.


I am a true True Blood fan, so much so that I decided to “immortalize” myself via Facebook. By clicking the link and allowing Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard)  to have his way with your Facebook friends list, soon your loved ones will be missing (where is Exes & OhsMichelle Paradise?) and you’ll even be receiving emails from the Sherriff of Area 5 himself.

If you’re a fan of The Voice (and specifically of out performers Beverly McClellan and Vicci Martinez) you can download all of the contestants’ live performances on iTunes immediately following each show. Each $1.29 download will count as a vote for that artist. (I wonder what portion of the download sale the artists will be receiving? I have a feeling it’s zero percent.)

Yesterday I mentioned the amazing Iron Chef Cat Cora and her growing culinary empire. Cora spent the last few days slaving away in the kitchen for last night’s Country Music Television Music Awards. Cora shared some of her recipes with Access Hollywood.


Jillian Michaels has her own podcast available on iTunes. Listen to Michaels’ informative show and make sure to write down all her health and happiness tips.

Part of being a celebrity is dealing with critics and crazed fans (aka stalkers.) Out actress Lindsay Lohan is no stranger to stalkers, and this week her delusional 38-year old stalker, David Cocordan (who claims to be Lohan’s fiancé, has sent her over 100 text messages and routinely attends Lohan’s court hearings), has been ordered  by the Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joseph Biderman to keep a 100-yard distance from the actress for the next two years. If Lohan needs a bodyguard, I’m her girl!

Last night the extremely right-wing conservative Ann Coulter (just typing her name gives me the willies) was interviewed by Piers Morgan and refused to answer the question ,“If you had a daughter or son who came to you and said they were gay, how would you feel?” (Luckily, Coulter does not have any children that she can scar.)


The all-female band Sick of Sarah and their out frontwoman Abisha Uhl will be performing tomorrow night (Friday, June, 10) at Clyde Iron Works in Duluth, Minnesota. The show starts at 7 pm, and you can check out their tour schedule to see where the girls are heading next.

Lesbian/Bi Video of the Day:

Imagine a world where being gay is “normal” and being heterosexual puts you in the minority. Now it might seem ideal at first but anytime there is a majority, the minority is in danger of being attacked for being different. Love is All You Need? is a film about a young teen raised in the “picture perfect all-American family” with two moms, two grandfathers and two uncles. But the girl has a problem. She is straight, which is against everything this world has ever taught her.

Love is All You Need? is currently making the film festival rounds and will have it’s California premiere at Frameline: San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival June 18 at 11 am. Visit the film’s website to see if it’s playing near you.
