    I wish this site would stop providing links to blogs where gays sit and bitch about everything under the sun. “Pink is the new blog” and “dlisted” are so horribly annoying, I don’t think this site should be attached to them. I visit this site to stay away from crap like that.

    Chace says he doesn’t want to be out there, but he and his handlers are hell bent on making him a big star, TV or otherwise.

    It doesn’t make any sense.

    Re “Mad Men” warning: Serious hate that double standard!! I wonder: To whom should I complain?

    This is parody, right?

    Yes, Obama’s vacation is expensive, but he’s almost entirely paying for it out of his own pocket (according to O’Reilly, anyway). But yesterday I read that Cindy Sheehan and the antiwar protestors will be on Martha’s Vineyard all week too.

    This make me sound old, but watching that clip of Heidi Montag violate and abuse Yaz’s music really offended me in a way that I can only compare to what a hardcore Christian might feel if they saw an image of Christ being anally raped. Are there really people nowadays who might actually like this? Buy it? It’s tired to say that pop culture is dead – I think it’s more accurate to say that it just doesn’t exist anymore, and that it might as well have *never* existed with the way everything had been so disposable and is really a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy.

    And as for Adam Lambert, he really is no more interesting than Ann Wilson of Heart in 1987. I just don’t see anything redeeming about him.

    I feel that at least in the past when pop stars “referenced” previous artists, they did so with some kind of twist or intelligent take on it. These people are just completely banal, plastic and gross.

    By the way, I’m not nearly as bitter a person as this post makes me sound. But I really am in the aftershocks of nausea after that Heidi thing.

    And I’m 33.

    I would like the staff of The Standards marketing team to be forced to stand outside the hotel with their Moms, kids and Grandparents for a few Sunday afternoons and then decide if the think freak is chic.

    @Derek- Unless their kids were IVF, Mom and the Grandparents thought le Freak was Chic-at least at one point. And I’m not talking the ’70s.
