Gay 'Faking It' Star Michael Willett Talks (And Sings) About His Acting And Music Career: VIDEO

Willett

Out gay actor Michael Willett, famous for his roles in Showtime's United States of Tara, indie movie G.B.F., and MTV lesbian high school comedy Faking It, sat down with iHeartRadio's Charlie Carballo at ComicCon last week to talk about his career, both on screen and off. Things got a little silly.

Willett not only discussed season two of his hit MTV show, about two high school girls who fake a romantic relationship in a bid for popularity, but also an upcoming album and single which he described as "very alt-pop—my interpretation of what glam, rock and pop should be." Charlie then put the crooner to the test, demanding a song about Little Debbie snacks to the tune of "My Girl" (a throwback to Willett's first gig starring in a Hostess commercial). After the surprisingly sweet serenade, Charlie asked Willett to "talk nerdy" to him. The multi-talented entertainer certainly rose to the challenge.

Cazwell's 'Sprung' Is An Acid Trip of Experimental Awesomeness - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-04 at 2.47.55 PM

Openly gay rapper Cazwell usually specializes in overly simple lyrics filled with booty-shakin hotties, but he's trying something new in his latest video “Sprung.”

Dubbed an "experiemental art project," the video is full of trippy filters and effects while Cazwell, sporting a high-top afro, spits out especially filthy lyrics about a bathroom blowjob.

Most notably, the sporadically edited video incorporates lots of samples, something that Cazwell hasn’t often done in previous singles like ”No Selfie Control” and ”Guess What.”

Is this the dawn of a new Cazwell?

Actor Ben Whishaw On The 'Courage' It Takes To Come Out As Gay - VIDEO

Lilting

Actor Ben Whishaw, who is set to take on the role of Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic, has spoken to The Sunday Times Magazine about the courage it takes to come out as gay.

Whishaw, who married his partner Mark Bradshaw last year, discussed the similarities between the character he plays in new movie Lilting and his own life.

In the movie, he plays a gay man struggling to come to terms with the death of his boyfriend and forced to tell his partner’s grieving mother about his relationship with her son for the first time.

On whether he was able to relate to someone who felt they couldn’t come out to their mother, Whishaw said:

"It is hard, I applaud anyone who does it. There is so much tension around doing something like that, that maybe you’re not quite thinking rationally. You can say absurd things because you are in a panic.

Asked about coming out to his own parents, he said:

"I identify with the character in Lilting in as much as I had a lot of fear in doing it for a long time...it takes courage and people have to do it in their own time, which is a negotiation you see happening in the film."

Janelle Monae has just released a catchy new dance anthem for her song "Electric Lady" and the video has everything you’d expect from the Outkast descendant — cupcake-baking ladies, a retro-futuristic sorority setting, light saber group dancing and a groovealicious houseparty featuring a marching band.

Plus the video shows Monae’s real-life mother at the beginning — score!

The song comes from Janelle Monae’s latest album The Electric Lady. We shared her video for Q.U.E.E.N. (another track from the same album) earlier this year.
