They both attended a special dinner for designers Brian Wolf and Claude Morais of Ruffian as part of New York Fashion Week last Thursday, but Bass insists there is no romance between them.

Ricky Martin & Ellen DeGeneres Overjoyed By Gay Marriage Ruling

8/5/2010 8:38am EDT
Ellen Degeneres
Gay stars including Ricky Martin, Ellen DeGeneres and Lance Bass are celebrating after a judge branded legislation outlawing same sex marriage in California "unconstitutional."

Gay marriages were made legal in California in 2008, but state legislation Proposition 8 overturned the law and deemed the unions illegal, just six months later.

The political backtracking sparked anger among campaigners and, in a landmark ruling on Wednesday, a judge ruled the ban on same-sex marriage was "unconstitutional" because it was an infringement of the "fundamental right to marry and creates an irrational...

Eminem
Eminem has thrown his support behind same-sex marriage in his home state of Michigan, following years of complaints from gay rights groups about his offensive lyrics.

The Slim Shady star has previously come under fire over his controversial songs and was targeted by campaigners last year when he labeled homosexual singers Lance Bass, Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken "f**gots" in his track Elevator.

However, the star insists his outlook is "more mature" than in previous years - joking that if same-sex couples wish to marry, they have every right to be as "miserable" as their 'straight' counte...

Photos: 'Stars' At The Fox Reality Channel Really Awards

2009 Fox Reality Channel Really Awards
Check out a slideshow of celebrities from the 2009 Fox Reality Channel Really Awards held at The Music Box at Fonda in Los Angeles last night. "Stars" from shows such as "The Girls Next Door," "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," and "Megan Wants A Millionaire" made red carpet appearances.

Several of these celebrities have certainly milked their 15 minutes of fame, while others have legitimately gone on to make successful "careers" for themselves, such as Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian. We're not sure exactly what they do to make money except for promote themselves, but whatever it is, it...

Writer's Viewpoint: Is It Right For Others To Out Gay Celebrities?

6/16/2009 11:08am EDT
Lance Bass
To out or not to out, that is the question. For years Out Magazine, a gay publication, has taken to the practice of "outing" celebrities. Outing, declaring a celebrity gay when he or she has not admitted it, is controversial yet effective, for the gay rights movement. The celebrity is notified of the magazine's intent and thereby allowed the chance to come out on his/her own.

This practice, unfortunately, is due to the ignorance that is still running rampant in this country. Gay rights activists choose to emphasize that their lifestyle not only exists, but continues on a much larger ...

Unexpected Celebrity Career Changes

Joaquin Phoenix
In the celebrity world, career dabbling is a relatively common occurrence. Once a person has risen to celebrity status, they have easy access to the necessary resources, such as agents, publicists, and various other in-the-biz connections, that will allow them to change careers almost as often as they change their bed sheets - think celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Hilary Duff who oscillate between being actresses and singers. Career changes like these are made especially possible in today's celebrity world thanks to contraptions like auto-tune, which has lead to the replacement of talen...

A Profile/Interview with Actor/Producer/Talk Show Host Ryan O'Connor

Ryan O
Ryan O'Connor is a tough man to pin down. When I first approached O'Connor to do an exclusive one-on-one interview, it was for my "Break-Out Internet Star" piece, but his busy shooting schedule, coupled with awareness events around the election did not allow it. Still, I pursued onward because I knew I had to lock him down now, so I could say I "knew him when." And O'Connor was eager to chat and excited about his "first real piece of press," but as we got into the meat of what makes him and his show tick, I began to realize just how media savvy he must be because in rescheduling, he did no...

'Dancing With The Stars' Semifinal Round

Dancing With The Stars
Four contestants, eight dances, and still one person will have to go home and dance with the stars no more. It could be almost anyone considering the harsh criticism poured on the celebrities this week. It could have something to do with Len's lessons during rehearsal, or it could be because it's the semi-finals, but either way the scores and the dancers were in for a rude awakening.

Brooke Burke and partner Derek Hough danced the jive and the salsa this week. Brooke's goal for the night was to wow the crowd and perform like the three remaining men she's competing against. With her ext...

Dancing With The Stars
Next week is the Dancing With The Stars semi-final, meaning each celebrity needed to step up their game this week. They were challenged to not only two dances, but also a 15 second solo to show of their dancing abilities without the help of their professional partner.

Cody Linley, still paired with partner Edyta Sliwinska due to Julianne Hough surgery, performed both the foxtrot and mambo this week. He was bummed due to having the lowest score and being in the bottom two last week. Some of his friends came to visit and boosted his spirits; they also got a kick out of dancing with Edyta...

'Dancing With The Stars': New Routines and Team Dancing

11/4/2008 10:27am EST
Dancing With The Stars
Dancing With The Stars is always up for trying something new. This week it was "Team Dancing" where half the couples still in the competition were put against the other half to boost their scores. But first, each couple had to perform a dance they had not done previously.

Up first, Warren Sapp and Kym Johnson dancing the foxtrot. Kym took Warren to watch a professional foxtrot class and pick up some tips for the male part. Warren didn't impress the judges, however. He received the lowest ballroom score, prior to the additional points from the team dance. Len Goodman, back from his vaca...

It was a night filled with diversity on Dancing With The Stars. Almost everyone performed a different type of dance, Michael Flatly, the Lord of the Dance, took Len's position for the night as a guest judge, and all the stars joined together to coordinate a hip hop routine.

Maurice Greene and Cheryl Burke were the first to take the floor, performing a Viennese waltz. Maurice was skeptical on dancing a ballroom-esque number because he had not done so since week one of the competition. He claimed his mind was on overload. He didn't get too bad critiques, but he did wind up with t...

Last night four new dances were added to the Dancing With The Stars competition: West Coast Swing, Salsa, Hustle and the Jitterbug. While these dances aren't officially new to the dancing world, some of the professionals had to resort to the internet for their own knowledge to be able to teach their star. A male and female celebrity each took a shot at the new dances back to back for the audience and the judges' comparisons.

The West Coast Swing was performed by Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer along with Toni Braxton and Alec Mazo. Lance was up first, but most of his critiques were not ...

After Misty May's painful farewell, no one was eliminated last week on Dancing With The Stars. However, the competition wasn't going to take last week's votes and scores lightly. Everything carried over from last week, making people like Rocco DiSpirito work even harder for a chance to dance another day.

This week the stars were assigned to dance either the tango or the samba and were judged accordingly. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was cracking down this week claiming that by week four of the competition, people needed to start taking critiques and the dances seriously.
