  6. Adelle would be a fantastic Dusty Springfield. Scott Eastwood is doing a lot to explain male to male attraction, if some don't get it.

  13. In the name of boycotting pasta, catch Adam Lambert on "Glee." You're guaranteed a limp noodle. Andy's a bit too tight with that show-know-who. Is "Glee" a vital component of being gay today? Death need not be exploited.
