Friends and Allies

Adam Lambert and Kris Allen
Kris Allen on his frustration with Christians who wouldn't accept Adam Lambert:

"There [were all these rumors] about how all the conservative, Christian people that would vote for me hate Adam and never want him to win because of who he is. Oh, it was so frustrating — really bad, because we are really good friends. Why can't everyone get along? It never made any sense for me to judge anyone, who they are. It frustrates me that people can't get along with people because of their differences. And I'll tell you what, especially Christians.

Christians have a hard time accepting people like Adam — liberal, from L.A., looks different, maybe acts a certain way. He's a great, great guy. They don't even give him a chance. And it's frustrating because I come from that. A lot of my friends are not that way, which I appreciate, but a lot of people in Arkansas or in the South or wherever are that way. We really hope that our relationship can be an inspiration to people. I could go on about that forever."

On speculation that he and Adam Lambert painted their nails as a campaign to get a Kradam finale. (i.e. at the exclusion of Danny Gokey)

Kris Allen: That's not what we were saying. This is what we were saying: There was this tabloid thing that came out about me and Adam, about how we don't get along because I'm this conservative kid from Arkansas and he's this L.A. liberal guy. Which, I could be nothing less than conservative. I'm just from Arkansas. And they were like, "He's cranky because he misses his wife and Adam's nail polish is all over the place and they can't get along." And we were like, "That's so stupid. That's the stupidest thing." We just didn't want people to think that we didn't get along. Because we're really great, great friends.

Entertainment Weekly comment:

I'm a Christian conservative. I have a lot of Christian conservative friends. And guess what? We love Adam. (And Kris, too!) We're going to buy Adam CDs and Adam concert tickets. We voted for him. Please do not stereotype us. When you do, you are guilty of the exact thing you say you hate--judging without knowing a person.

True Christians love people no matter what, because that's what Jesus did. BUT Jesus was not content to leave people in a state that he considered to be a sin, and Christians aren't supposed to do that, either. Yet we're also supposed to recognize that we are ALL sinners, Christians included! There are a lot of sins like righteousness and selfishness and boastfulness that Christians AND non-Christians commit all the time, and Jesus hated those sins more than prostitution and drunkenness. So let's all remember that no one is perfect, no one's sins are any better or worse than anyone else's, and Adam is one talented dude. (And of course Kris is too!)

Repost (I hope the original poster doesn't mind me reposting):

"An astute columnist's take on Reese:"

"And Reese Witherspoon with her self-involved, petulant sound in her voice that indicates a privileged life of a daughter of the South.

No matter what role she plays, no matter how hard she works to portray a different kind of girl (for she is eternally a girl), this personality, or character, is deeply imprinted in her psychic DNA, it is who she is - a girl who expects with supreme confidence that she deserves the best in every situation, and never has to speculate on that privilege, because she is not fully aware of it."

Jim Sheridan's 'Brothers' Finally Set For A December 4, Oscar-Bait Season Release

Jim Sheridan's long-completed, practically dormant (if you weren't privy to the backstory) drama, "Brothers," starring Tobey MaGuire, Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman will finally see a release date during Oscar-bait season on December 4. Previously scheduled for an August release, this probably indicates some strong level of confidence on the studio's part which is Relativity Media/Lionsgate.

David Benioff, a solid scribe known for penning "The 25th Hour" and "The Kite Runner," but perhaps having lost cred for writing "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," also wrote this one.

A source tells us the film received stellar scores at screen tests last summer and was scheduled for release Christmas 2008, but the window was missed, presumably because of editing tinkering (test scores were largely positive, but one character wasn't like as much as producers hoped), money (the Relativity deal), and the fact the picture has Iraq-war connections, which has proven to be box-office poison, so clearly they've been trying to calibrate the correct pitch. Essentially, there's been a lot of careful planning rather than rushing the release just because it was shot and ostensibly completed.

A remake of the 2004 Danish film "Brødre" from director Susanna Bier ("Things We Lost In The Fire") the film centers on the story of a younger "blacksheep" brother (Gyllenhaal) stepping in to take care of the family (Portman and their son) of his older "good" brother (Maguire) after the latter disappears during an enemy skirmish in Afghanistan. So it's like a love triangle with a Cain & Abel vibe and post-war acclimation trouble leanings. In the heart of Oscar season? It sounds like a risky gamble, but Sheridan does have a strong Oscar track record ("In America," "In The Name Of The Father," "My Left Foot," etc.)

Here's the "official" synopsis:

"On his way to report for a peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan, Danish Army officer Michael (Maguire) stops to pick up his brother Jannik (Gyllenhaal), who is getting out of jail that day. In Afghanistan, Michael's helicopter crashes and he is presumed dead. Jannik and Michael's wife Sarah (Portman) discover that they don't hate each other as much as they had thought, and Jannik decides to reform and make himself useful around Sarah's house. Then Michael comes home with a full-blown case of post traumatic stress disorder because of what he had to do to survive in captivity. Write your own ending and draw your own moral conclusions, if any."
Irish stadium anthem rockers U2 have contributed original songs to the film, some of which have already been released due to the film's "delays." [Box Office Mojo]

Having seen the Danish film, I think Tobey has a difficult role to play. He has to carry it off for the film to work.

Sheridan's good, though, and I hope this film can restore Jake's credibility that's been in the garbage.

Do you really think the hiking pics were arranged? As for the memorial, it's not so unusual to laugh at memorials. Maybe to release tension?

Anonymous said...

While I don't agree with Jake's "tabloid romance" (how Jake's dad called it) with Reese, I refuse to believe that Jake turned into a cold blooded bastard (which I think his lady love is ;) ). His weird reaction or lack thereof must have reason, a good reason (at least in Jake's opinion).
I think Jake liked him very, very much. You can't just turn off your feelings for someone (I think)./

Adam Lambert Is Hurting Gay America

You know what, Adam Lambert? Just can it with the coy shit. Everyone knows the American Idol second-placer is a big ol' homo from Fruitington Corners, but in every goddamn interview the lurching behemoth always says things like "keep speculating..." And I wish he'd just man up and step out.

Not that people should be forced to come out of the closet, but fool keeps calling himself a role model, and then won't acknowledge the fact that he's the gayest thing since Jody Watley got lost in the Tenderloin that one time.

Anonymous said...

Funny how the Ojai Jake-Deacon pics were when Ryan was in Cannes, and there were some others in the past that were taken when he was also at important functions. I'm convinced the Reeke+kids photo ops are timed to coincide with Ryan's schedule when he's at his most busiest and most vulnerable so that Reese can push his buttons. Those poor kids. That's what happens with narcissists, they use everybody even their own children to feed their ego and they don't see it as doing anything wrong.

No doubt that Reeke ops are irrelevant. But there is a difference exposing your innocent kids to paparazzi on purpose. When you look at pics, Ryan seems so very protective of his kids and soothing them when papz scare them. In my opinion he'd rip Jake a new hole if he used his kids for this.

Kelly McGillis: Coming Out As A Lesbian Was Hard said...

Kelly McGillis was relaxing in the Florida sunshine and preparing to go on a cruise last February when a simple question caught her off guard: As a single woman, was she looking to date a man or a woman?

"It was like a moment of truth," says the actress, 52, who became a star after appearing with Tom Cruise in Top Gun in 1986. "[A reporter] asked me the question and I thought, Hmm, do I say the truth, or do I just say, It's none of your business, which is my standard answer?"

"I said you know, I'm just going to say the truth," McGillis told PEOPLE at rehearsals for her new play The Little Foxes, which opens May 29 at the Pasadena Playhouse in Pasadena, Calif.

McGillis's "truth" was a long time coming, and the answer was simple: "Definitely a woman." The woman who made many a male’s heart flutter as the sultry flight instructor in Top Gun has been married twice and has two children. But she says she's actually been a lesbian most of her life. "I tried really hard not to be who I am. I tried super hard," she says. "It was a difficult journey for me to come to terms and be whole and happy with who I am."

Still McGillis, who stars as Regina Giddens in the play alongside Julia Duffy and Marc Singer, says she was surprised people made a big deal about her revelation. "I got on a cruise ... I thought the whole thing had just disappeared [after the interview], and then I got a phone call: 'Oh my God, Kelly, you can't believe it, it's everywhere.' "

The Little Foxes is McGillis's return to acting after spending eight years as virtually a full-time mom to her two children, and she says it's been a challenge. "The idea of being judged just totally freaks me out," says McGillis. "Even though I try really hard not to care what people think about me – and that really is my little adage, what you think about me is none of my business – it does matter, and it is hard."

One thing she's not working on right now: romance. "I am single, and I'm really happy to be so. I was with somebody for eight years, and I just want to be single ... I have such cool friends, and such a cool life," says McGillis. "I don't know what God's plan is for me at all, I just know I'm so happy to be here and happy to be working."

I am surprised that people aren't more interested in Austin's trip. Do you think he may have been at the wedding and just decided to stay for awhile. Kind of throw people off the scent in case pictures surface from around the time of the wedding.

I know people make a fuss about these necklaces around Jake and Austin's necks, but I can never see a clear enough picture of them to see exactly what they look like to tell if they are the same. Has anyone got a copy of a clear, closeup picture of the necklaces for comparison?

Also, why do I have a feeling that if Jake and Austin are still in a "committed" relationship it may be one-sided. This Francis episode and the confidentialy agreements are leading me to think that Jake is constantly cheating. I know a lot of people have open relationships but I know that I have never heard anything about Austin or Grey Goose stepping out on Jake. I just read the rumors about Jake.

If the Francis thing is true (and I suspect it is) then no wonder Reese tags along with Jake as much as she can and holds his hand like a little kid's wherever they go. Along with his bearding and her self-promotion, she's helping him help save himself. The Francis story showed that, when he's alone, Jake doesn't seem to have any problem making a connection.

Without Reese by his side 80% of the time, god only knows how many more long lingering looks, phone numbers and hookups he would be doing, plus since TT/Jake likes sex in public, how much official legal trouble and gossip it could land him into if he was caught. I bet this Francis fracas probably already caused a few problems, who knows if he got paid off to delete the post and keep quiet.

I'm thinking maybe the Chin has a little deal on the side with Disney's Katzenberg, to keep Jakey's sexual predilections and indiscretions from making the 6 o'clock news, at least until POP. Maybe that's why the bearding with Reeke seemingly spending 24 hours a day together is way over the top, because Reese IS spending as much time as she can with Jake because she's his gay hookup prevention watchdog. For Jake's sake but to protect herself, most of all. Everyone talks about how in the fauxmance/bearding that Jake could never dump Reese and make her look bad, and that she won't dump Jake because she wants an easy PR boyfriend. But the one thing that would blow the showmance and their reputations all to hell would be if Jake was caught and publicly outed. Reese isn't going to allow that to happen to her investment.

Maybe Austin is just more discrete and/or a better judge of people when it comes to hookups. Or maybe people have it out for Jake because of the bearding, or because he's far better known more inclined to talk.

Sound from the blog that Austin behaved himself in Italy. Too bad, there are a lot of hot men there. I was kind of hoping he'd dumped Jake's ass, but the necklaces make me think they're still together.

Posted in the comments on TMZ post on Adam doing his nails:


"I would rather not answer until it comes out," Leila Lambert said in a phone interview with E! News regarding Adam's reported upcoming announcement to Rolling Stone that he is indeed gay. But that's not the real shocker. Check out what she has to say about the behind-the-scenes antics of the Idol camp... Leila says she also signed a contract with American Idol and is not allowed to discuss her son's personal life anyway without THEIR PERMISSION. "We signed a contract with Idol and unless it has been set up by them, I'm not allowed to answer," says Leila.

"This Francis episode and the confidentialy agreements are leading me to think that Jake is constantly cheating."

The Signed BV Ted had was about TT getting a handjob (which to me was surprising because they seem pretty low on the sexual act totem pole but maybe that's just my rating). Maybe Jake feels too bound by monogamy, not that its his conscious decision, its just that he "needs" to be free for his creative side to be able to express itself. I don't know if I explained that well but you know how artists are, lol. It could be that Austin is comfortable with being monogamous, so without restraining Jake too much, and without Jake getting too promiscuous, they have a compromise that Jake can have his onetime flings, but that the action is limited to handjobs. Just speculation on my part but it would make sense if one partner (or hell both) wants to stray, to say "ok" but here's the boundary.

Anonymous said...

I don't know. Seems too much trouble to go to just to get a handjob. Ted has inplied that Jake is a very passionate person. I just don't see him be satisfied with a simple handjob; he could do that himself.

Anonymous said...

keep hearing about these matching necklaces. is this for real or just some projected fanfic.

I would like to see a clear close up picture of these things too.

Hand jobs=safe sex, no stds to bring back to your partner.

@11.55 - projected fanfic for sure. Nobody knows what hangs at the end of either of those necklaces, but it's fun and romantic for Jaustinites to believe whatever it is it's all matchy-matchy. *gag*

LOL you must be female. With 99% of guys no matter what's done the turn on is: its someone different.

Does that full intercourse as well as hand jobs?

I wonder if all the mentions of women and falling in love etc. is intentional overkill, either meant to be a sarcastic retort to a demand, or an inside joke where not only the names have been changed but the genders as well.

Maybe Austin did both - was at the wedding and took a trip with a friend.

Who knows if Austin was at the wedding... Will just have to wait for Maggie's tell-all book in 20 years! lol But now that Austin is back in town, I wonder the boys will get together before Austin has to leave again to film OTH in July.

We have seen Jake and Austin wearing two similar necklaces, right?
We didn't create that.

Some do know. Some are easy to see and some are hard to find. But the rings are very much there. Seek and you shall find.

Unlike all the fanfic created around Jake/Reese's perceived jewelry swaps and vintage necklaces. No proof they've exchanged anything but it's acceptable to say/speculate they have across fanboards.

Hypocrite.

Don't forget the what, is it four now, proposals..with a new different and bigger ring every time. Not to mention the endless tales of how a secret wedding is taking place here/there and then the next following breaking story is how Jake is going to propose.. LOL someone needs to take Continuity 101. Proposal first, then the wedding.

Austin, Jake and necklaces

Anonymous said...

RDJ wears a similar black string around his neck and i think a pendent is at the other end. Jake wears a black string and a gold chain and the imprint looked too od to be a ring, more likely a pendant. He also doesn't wear them all the time, if they actually meant anything he would wear them all the time.

You are just as bad as the babblers, wost you chery pick your "observations". How could you miss the Jake/RDJ hats and the black necklace pendant, even the girls on ONTD picked up on that.

Really Austin I have no idea who this J.G. Francis is. She's probably some weirdo stalker from that delusional Babble site. So c'mon over here and give your owlbird some sugar, he misses you.

"black necklace pendant"

It's probably en vogue right now.

Anonymous said...

8:51 we all noticed the pendants on Jake and RDJ, although what RDJ has to do with it and the hats, whatever. The point YOU are missing is that Austin is wearing the dark necklace in the Italy pics (along with his regular gold one that has had the gold wedding ring on it) and this is the first time we have seen him wear the black one, a black one like Jake's.

But keep talking 8:51, your lack of observation and your quickness to accuse others of what yourself is so guilty of, is terribly amusing!

Yes maybe but I can honestly say I don't know any straight guys wearing necklaces these days!

RDJ black necklace and hat aren't very similar to Jake's.

RDJ and Jake's hat's and necklaces and hats are not the same but are siilar and it's clear that they are wearing the same style because that's the style guys are wearing now. Similar but not the same hasn't stopped the jaustin loons!

PS: Jake doesn't seem to wear them all the time based on the pap pics.

Great Horned Cock?! The owl and birded shirts Jake wears alot. He wanted to be a bird when he was little.

Anonymous said...

My point is that if the stupid chain/necklace actually means something then he would wear it all the time.

No one seems to know why Jake is wearing those dumb hats, similar to RDJ since December. He seems to hang withhim a lot and maybe just picked up the style.

The black leater necklace, Rdj's appears tobe thicker than Jake's and pendant looks like a Buddhist pendant, I saw a picture of RDJ's pendant when it popped out of his shirt on some pap pics, RDJ is a practicing Buddhist, have no idea about Jake's tacky necklace SK.

9:13, your 2 statements above are in conflict with each other. Pick a side if you must or remain neutral. Don't try to pick fights with EVERYONE. You aren't very good at it and frankly we can see right thru you. Why don't you spend your time and your ire somewhere else.
