Tyrese Gibson Is Not Amused By Rumors Of Gay Sexual Favors Sparked By Comedian Spanky Hayes: VIDEO

Gibson2

Comedian Spanky Hayes (below right) appeared on TMZ recently spouting some rumors about Tyrese Gibson (above) and how he beat Spanky out for a role in 2001's Baby Boy. Suffice to say that male-on-male sexual contact was involved. Though it is Hayes' profession to make people laugh, probably utilizing outlandish claims to achieve those ends, Gibson was highly unamused and fired back in a big way. 

HayesMirror reports:

Spanky, known for his appearance on the Nick Cannon show Wild 'N Out, claims he was beaten out of the role by Tyrese after auditioning for John [Singleton], who allegedly told them: "I f***ing love both of you guys, but which one of you guys are gonna suck my c***?'"

It is not yet known if he said it in jest, but he added: "I bust out laughing because nobody has talked to me like that. But the other dude, who I won't say his name, wasn't laughing. To keep it real, he got the lead role in Baby Boy."

Gibson recorded his own video, saying that Hayes' statement is akin to committing "a career suicide." Then he does some truth telling about the role:

"Let me tell you something you don't know. First of all, the role for Baby Boy was written, directed and produced by John Singleton. It was written for Tupac. That's a factual fact.

"When Tupac was killed, he only had one person in mind to play Baby Boy, it wasn't them, it wasn't you ... f**k, it was me."

He goes on to claim he's "never had those sorts of rumors" launched at him, all the while smoking a cigar, wearing a fur coat, and laughing at Spanky's relative lack of success. Seems like an overreaction, no? If nothing else it indicates that Gibson may lack any sense of humor.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) Explains Why Same-Sex 'Massages' Make Gays Unfit for Military Service - VIDEO

Gohmert

Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas, who has found ways to oppose gun control because...same-sex marriage (?), was quite vocal recently about Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Of course he opposed the repeal of the discriminatory policy, but who knew his reasoning could be this far-fetched.

When the ancient Greeks and man-on-man massages play into your law-making, you can't exactly claim you "know your history," as Gohmert does. 

Right Wing Watch reports on his statement:

"I've had people say, 'Hey, you know, there's nothing wrong with gays in the military. Look at the Greeks,'" he said. "Well, you know, they did have people come along who they loved that was the same sex and would give them massages before they went into battle. But you know what, it's a different kind of fighting, it's a different kind of war and if you're sitting around getting massages all day ready to go into a big, planned battle, then you're not going to last very long. It's guerrilla fighting. You are going to be ultimately vulnerable to terrorism and if that's what you start doing in the military like the Greeks did ... as people have said, 'Louie, you have got to understand, you don't even know your history.' Oh yes I do. I know exactly. It's not a good idea." 

Right, because gay servicemembers, given the chance to enter combat, will resort to the ancient Greek philosophy: massages before fighting, what could go wrong?

Someone please keep history from repeating itself and do not reelect Gohmert.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval Says He Will Fight Efforts to Stop Gay Marriage in the State

SandovalNevada Governor Brian Sandoval has pledged to oppose the anti-gay Coalition for the Protection of Marriage's efforts to get the Ninth Circuit to grant a full re-hearing of the challenge to the state's same-sex marriage ban, the AP reports:

The Republican governor provided a quick answer Wednesday to an appeals court call for briefs within three weeks from the state and an advocacy group that won the right to gay marriage on behalf of eight Nevada same-sex couples.

Sandoval, who previously stated he believes marriage is between one man and one woman, has been supportive of the Ninth Circuit's pro-equality ruling, saying it "confirmed my previous position that the State’s arguments against same sex marriage are no longer defensible in court."

Now how about going after those pious wedding chapels in Vegas that continue discriminating against gay couples?


Taylor Swift Applauds Gay Fan's Grindr Promotion of New Album '1989'

GrindrTaylor

Maybe it was a joke, or maybe Taylor Swift's success simply has no bounds. Whatever the case may be, Tumblr user 'ughstory' posted a screenshot (above) of his Grindr conversation-turned-album promotion for the young pop singer (with caption: "Honestly why am I single..."), and Taylor took notice. 

Take 40 reports:

Once Taylor saw this, she reblogged the image and wrote "CANT (sic) STOP LAUGHING. I Will be applauding you for decades to come for this."

This story comes one day after Taylor went to #1 on iTunes in Canada after releasing 8 seconds of white noise.

Is this just the beginning of a new form of advertisement? Will Grindr be overrun with T-Swift fans? Only time will tell...

Lisa Kudrow Thinks Gay Men Are 'Superior Beings,' Praises Their Appreciation Of 'The Comeback'

KudrowCherish

Lisa Kudrow aka Phoebe Buffay aka Valerie Cherish recently spoke with PrideSource about the renewed second season of her cult classic comedy The Comeback. It seems that Ms. Kudrow holds the belief that homosexuals may be the most mentally and physically exceptional humans on earth. Maybe that's why they are so drawn to Valerie's exceptionally uncomfortable and humorous shenanigans...

Frontiers LA reports:

“The people I work with are gay. I don't know who I'm going to offend by leaving them out, but I need to say that I think gay men are superior beings in my mind. I do believe that.

It's all so tricky. I studied biology and the brains are anatomically different. They just are. There's a stronger connection with the corpus callosum (in gay men). The two sides of the brain communicate better than a straight man's, and I think that has to be really important. They're not women - they're still men - and women also have thicker corpus callosums, so I think it's the combination of those qualities that makes them like a superhuman to me.”

Kudrow offered an explanation for The Comeback's gay fanbase, too, citing the constant difficulties they face as a hot button minority in today's society.

“I was watching Will & Grace once and there was this hilarious episode where Karen's at a theater and she throws her flask and it hits someone in the head, and there's this joke that gay men wouldn't care ‘cause, ‘Eh, all in a day.’ (Laughs) Getting, like, smacked with something is ‘all in a day.’ So I wonder if that's what it is - because Valerie gets, you know, humiliated - or humiliates herself - all the time. And it's like, ‘Yeah, well, that's the world.’” 

Leave it to Kudrow (or is it Cherish?) to make light of the embarassing and upsetting moments in life. But hey, maybe getting through all of that is what makes the LGBTQ community "superhuman," huh? Kudrow (in character as Cherish) may get a chance to bring that insight to RuPaul's Drag Race, too; she's been offered a guest judge position for next season:

“You know, I've been asked to, but I don't know how Valerie works on a talk show or as a judge. I don't know. I'm thinking about it. I'm trying to figure out how it works. I don't wanna say no!

(Laughs) But she could say all kinds of - I don't know what we're allowed to [say on Drag Race]. I mean, she's indelicate and gets things wrong and, you know, I don't know how offensive she's gonna be.”

Get ready for The Comeback season two, beginning November 9th.
