What you really wanted for Christmas? Jared

RoadSinger/songwriter Vanessa Carlton got married. And Stevie Nicks officiated

RoadAre gay marriage bans in jeopardy? Some say "not so fast": "'I wouldn't say [the Windsor ruling] is the death knell for marriage exclusion through the rest of the states, but I think it does initiate the next round of marriage equality victories,' said Bill Eskridge, a professor at Yale Law School and a constitutional law expert who has authored many works on legal issues facing same-sex couples. 'My prediction is that there will be a very fair number of judges who will be persuaded that marriage equality should prevail,' he added."

RoadThe residency has begun

RoadIn case you missed it, the trailer for Zac Efron's raunchy comedy That Awkward Moment that features a scantily clad (and work unfriendly) Efron dealing with some consequences of taking a certain little blue pill. 

RoadBoy Scouts to open ranks to gay youth come January 1: "'My hope is there will be the same effect this Jan. 1 as the Y2K scare,' said Brad Haddock, a BSA national executive board member who chairs the policy implementation committee. 'It's business as usual, nothing happens and we move forward.'"

RoadTina Fey has a new show in the works about a "woman who escapes a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York City." Sadly, she won't be in this one. 

RoadFellow funny lady Rashida Jones has also sold a show with a somewhat wacky bent:"The half hour comedy [set to air on HBO] is called Claws and is described as a midnight-dark workplace dramedy-noir about a nail salon in Florida and the strange, dangerous women who work there."

RoadFeathers appear to have been the exception rather than the rule with Dinosaurs.

RoadIs Facebook losing ground with teens? "Researching the Facebook use of 16-18 year olds in eight EU countries, the Global Social Media Impact Study found that as parents and older users saturate Facebook, its younger users are shifting to alternative platforms. 'Facebook is not just on the slide - it is basically dead and buried,' wrote Daniel Miller, lead anthropologist on the research team, who is professor of material culture of University College London. 'Mostly they feel embarrassed to even be associated with it. Where once parents worried about their children joining Facebook, the children now say it is their family that insists they stay there to post about their lives.'"

Britney Spears Discusses 'Work Bitch' with Ellen DeGeneres: VIDEO

Spears

Britney Spears sits down with Ellen today to talk about her new album Britney Jean, and Ellen's audience is extremely amused by the track "Work Bitch".

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Spears made headlines recently with some remarks about her gay fans:

"They're adorable," says Spears, 32. "They're absolutely adorable."

It seems like an appropriate time to tell her how that "adorable and hilarious" comment went viral and rubbed some the wrong way.

"Wait, what? Who felt the other way?" she asks, sincerely concerned she's offended people, and even a little lost. You get the impression Britney Spears doesn't Google herself.

So, I fill her in.

"I would never say anything to be mean to them. I love my gay fans. Gay people are always usually my best friends in the whole world," she says. "I completely adore them."...

"I get inspiration from them on almost all of my songs," Spears says of her gay fans. "They're somewhat girls, so it's so inspiring to do stuff that they like to hear, like the cool 'in' stuff. Whatever I do for each record is definitely inspired by them."

British Merchant Navy Uses Britney Spears Music To Scare Off Somali Pirates: VIDEO

Britney_spears

Merchant navy officers off the north-eastern coast of Africa have a new weapon to ward off Somali pirate raids on marine vessels. Not guns. Not bombs. Just Britney. 

The "Work B***h" singer and pop diva has been heard floating over the waves and she is reportedly sending the pirate's skiffs packing. Early hits "Baby One More Time" and "Oops! I Did It Again" are the most effective songs in this new defensive strategy which is aimed at lessening the impact of ransom-seeking attacks, of which there were 176 in 2011 alone. 

The Mirror reports:

Second Officer Rachel from Aberfoyle in Scotland said: “Her songs have been chosen by the security team accompanying our tankers because they thought the pirates would hate them most. These guys can’t stand Western culture or music, making Britney’s hits perfect...There are a lot of lives and cargo at stake so security is of prime importance. The speakers can be aimed solely at the pirates so as not to disturb the crew. They’re so effective the ship’s security rarely needs to resort to firing guns - as soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney they move on as quickly as they can.”

The music is currently used as a second line of defence and is broadcast when initial calls from armed security guards on board fail to deter the pirates.

Though humorous in concept, the strategy has been effective in protecting cargo and personnel on board ships surrounding the Horn of Africa.

In other news, Spears sat down with BBC Radio TV and radio host for "Its' Britney Witch!", a dramatized reading of the Vincent Price monologue from Michael Jackson's "Thriller".
