  1. What a timely collection of news! Mad helped foster my disturbing sense of humor, I just worked on something related to D&G's tax evasion, and just yesterday a friend sent me an unrelated link about exploding whale carcasses--not exactly the stuff of my everyday life. It's like Towleroad can read my mind!

    Also, why was Bieber ever popular, and who is among his fan base now? The innocent tweens who loved the nonthreatening boy-girl a few years ago may or may not have changed, but either way they can't approve of his naughty recent antics (since they're still good girls) or will see through his pathetic attempts to remold himself as a bad boy (having become bad girls). I don't fully understand the enduring appeal of myriad celebrities, but his is utterly baffling.

  4. Actually, in Kenya, the Federation of Women Lawyers APPLAUDED the new polygyny law. (It's not truly polygamy, as no man can be married to a man, and all marriages require a man).

  5. Not paying taxes on €1 billion, and nobody goes to prison?

    There's one law for the rich, and another law for everyone else.

  7. Geffen will be the towel boy. Why no mention of Ronan Farrow's fake blue eyes? And Black/Daley joint flaunt hasn't happened yet according to article, which says: ... "Party together on Wednesday (May 30) in London, England." May has flown by!
