Bisexual rapper Azaelia Banks will be performing at L.A. Pride this year.

Yahoo has a piece on Heather Peace (see what I did there?) and her musical inspirations. Here she is on her new gay-themed song:

“‘We Can Change’ is my big gay anthem… it’s a message to anyone that opposes equal rights for LGBT people. It’s basically saying, stop pointing out the differences and we can actually change the world for the better. Oh and the line “this is just a part of me, it’s not the whole of me” is really just a dig at those editors that feel like they have to write “lesbian actress” or “lesbian musician” as a tag line to interviews I do. Just “actress” or “musician” is fine. I’ve been playing piano longer than I’ve been kissing girls and my wife says I’m much better at the piano!”

Amber Heard is one of People‘s Most Beautiful for 2014.

TVLine has some Faking It spoilers. Here’s what Rita Volk says about Amy:

“At the end of the day, Amy just wants her friend to fit in and get all the normal things that high-school girls want. But in the process, Amy sacrifices a lot of who she is and what she wants. She’s lying to everyone, including herself.”

Rita joined her co-stars on Big Morning Buzz this week, too.

Karmy shippers won’t like these scene much!
