  1. Andy Towle's website has become so celebrity-heavy, it's not funny. You may as well call it a website with celebrity tendencies. I counted six stories on celebrities in the news briefs alone.

    Are you really such a star-fu@cker, Andy?

  2. I find it rather funny that Kirk Cameron is so anti-gay because he is pretty much the person who made me confront the fact that I am. IIRC he was accused of cheating & to prove he hadn't the teacher let him retake the test in little blue 1980s briefs and a wife beater. And of course the episode with the ass injury from riding the dangerous and forbidden motorbike. Or the one where he spent an entire episode emoting to Eternal Flame by one Miss Debbie Gibson. (sigh) So my best revenge is that I masturbated to Mike Seaver- and still would!!!

  3. Oh look, now it's Rolling Stone's turn to suck the Pope's cock.

  4. If more celebrities would keep you and your myriad aliases away from TR, @Jason, I suspect most readers would say, Bring 'em on, Andy!

  5. If Cameron is seeking publicity for his movie, he could show IMAX previews on his forehead.

  6. Is Cameron protesting all the weddings or just the same sex ones?

    LOL @Parkrunner

  7. I can't help but notice that Kirk Cameron is proudly posing in front of an American flag that hasn't existed since the 1950's; before women had rights; before black people had rights; when gay people were criminals and when McCarthy ruled the country with a reign of conservative terror.

    Just sayin...

  8. Kirk Cameron. Found God but lost his humanity.

  9. Mr Cameron is a fame whore in desperate need a of a fix

  10. Kurt, the assault is over. You lost the battle AND the war. The Grammys was us dancing on your bigoted graves. Figuratively speaking of course. Suck it.

  11. Mr. Cameron needs to decamp to Nigeria where he can piggyback on the American teavangelicals who are spewing their hate, ignorance and intolerance to the populace.

  12. Brandon,

    The Grammys was a publicity stunt designed to boost Madonna's image.

  13. Cameron guy doesn't have an original idea in his body. Kinda jaded.

  14. The comments and nutters on Cameron's twitter feed is hilarious for anyone who is so inclined...

  15. "We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture"

    Oh that's right. The US didn't produce Lindsay Lohan. Must have been Ukraine.

    I'm sorry, but I think it smells like homophobia.

    I would bet that most (obviously not all) of the people who hate Bieber are straight men. And it is a hate, not mere dislike. They hate him because he's cute, and weak. He's a one-man boy-band, can't even grow a moustache, and he gets all the girls anyway. Anyone who has viewed the comments on his YouTube videos know that he gets called "faggot" more than any of us do.

    He may be Canadian, but he's only reflective of overall US pop culture. He's your mirror. Do what you want, but your culture isn't going to change just because Bieber is deported.

  16. Dear Kirk Cameron -

    No, it wasn't, and no, I won't.

    PS - on the teen heartthrob scale, you were a 5 at best. Chad Allen and Danny Pintauro were so much cuter.

  17. Thank you Pete Seeger.

  18. Um, it took you this long to come up with the world's most generic, noncommittal, fence-sitting answer in the history of ever, Harrison? Are you deficient?

    It's a wonder Brian Brown ever gets anything done with all the time he spends spamming Towleroad with insane, hateful twaddle. Oh, sorry. Not Brian, "Jason."

    And, while I'm on a roll, "Eternal Flame" was a Bangles song, not Debbie Gibson.

  19. The Vin Diesel video was so hot and cute at the same time. I wasn't sure what was going on but seeing a hot dude dance and dance good, and grin so widely made me smile.

  20. Chris Harrison is a moron. It took him a while to think about Juan Pablo's comments? Did he need someone to explain them to him?

    Posted by: Jack M | Jan 29, 2014 8:52:06 AM

  21. Love the line in Kirk Cameron's promo: "That why Family Christian Stores and I are giving it to you NOW. Just the way you want it."

    I'll sign on to the petition to have Justin Bieber deported just as soon as the 72,000 assholes who signed that petition will sign the petition to have the State Dept. revoke the credentials of the Ambassadors from Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Uganda, Russia and other countries with extreme homophobic policies.

    Vin Diesel's video was adorable!
