 road Meredith Vieira borrows Lady Gaga's smokey shades.

 road Scientists believe that dark matter has been building up in the sun over the last 5 billion years.


 road It was only a matter of time before it exploded over the Internet. Listen to audio of Mel Gibson's incredibly racist rant here. And, yes, it's just as bad as you think it is.

 road Posh Spice is just like us: "I am a gay man in woman's body so God supposes I should love singers like Lady GaGa."

 road The top 10 presidential fashion flubs.

 road I think it was the fake lesbian kiss that put the final nail in Miley Cyrus's career.

 road Kylie Minogue on being diagnosed with cancer: "Oh yeah. It changes. I look back on it now and the terror is still very real. But going through that and then going straight back on the road as soon as I physically could do it, I look back on that and think 'were you nuts?'"

 road Gail Collins on Levi Johnston: "(He) told People that he hoped that the Palins would 'forgive my youthful indiscretion.' This does not really sound like something that would come from a high-school dropout who gave his son the middle name of Easton because that is his favorite hockey equipment company. Bristol responded to her ex-boyfriend’s statement with one of her own, saying that 'part of co-parenting is creating healthy and honest relationships between the parents.' Also not the kind of word choice you normally hear from a 19-year-old."

 road Glee will get an all Britney episode.

 road Spain will win the World Cup. Or so says an octopus.

Road Gay (but celibate) nominee Rev. Jeffrey John is probably out of the running to become Bishop of Southwark in South London.

Road Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council is praising Gov. Linda Lingle of Hawaii for vetoing civil unions. BTW, he's on the record calling for homosexuality to be criminalized and for gays to be deported from the United States.

Road LeBron James branded a "cocksucker"—in a bad way—by Gawker.

Road The psychic octopus (no sentence should ever begin this way, but there it is) who successfully predicted the outcome of all the German World Cup matches has received death threats.

Road The Outrate Online Short Film Festival 2010 is under way. (NSFW ads.)

Road Homophobic, racist, anti-Semitic, Mel Gibson can add "wifebeater" to his résumé. Allegedly.

6a00d8341cabbe53ef0133f2224721970b-400wiRoad The video for "Crossfire"—Brandon Flowers's first-ever solo single—premieres in the U.K. today.

Road Gay men seeking asylum in the U.K. should be "free to enjoy themselves going to Kylie concerts and drinking exotically coloured cocktails." Nice thought, but probably not the main reason they fear returning to their home countries.

Road Republican Rep. Aaron Schock—who is absolutely not gay—is once again celebrated for his good looks. As a legislator, he makes a great fitness model.

Road The California governor race is all tied up. Which is good news and bad news for both Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman.

Road Gay activist Peter Rosenstein endorses D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray in the Washington, D.C., mayoral race. He'd previously worked as an advisor to Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, but "it's another sign that many longtime local Democratic and civic activists are coalescing around Gray because of concerns about Fenty's personality and governing style."

Road A supplements supplement.

England Lost World Cup Because Wayne Rooney Shaved His Chest


The latest Biblical conspiracy from the Daily Mail:

"According to the Bible, in exchange for his incredible strength, God instructed Samson that he should never cut his hair. But after falling in love with Delilah, to whom he revealed the secret of his powers, she conspired to have his hair cut off and he was captured and killed by the the Philistines.  [Wayne] Rooney (below) is normally seen with a much hairier chest and for yesterday's match he had also abandoned his normal stubble for a clean-shaven look. His new set of aerodynamics bore no dividends however as he failed totally to recapture the form that saw him score 34 goals in the Premiership last season. He looked tired, his first touch was poor and one wild shot on the run ended embarrassingly wide of the target."
