36 Celebs That Are Out And Proud
For so many years, celebrities had to hide their sexuality. Afraid of not getting work or keeping the jobs they already had, so many men and women of music, television and movies lived closeted and non-authentic lives. Today, these talented individuals use their sexuality not only as a platform for truth, but also as a way to assist other young people to be true to themselves and not live a life in fear. Some may surprise you, others are well-known to the LGBT community. Their stories instill hope that sexuality will become less of an issue then living an inspired life.

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Adam Lambert's suit could be trying to show cherry blossoms on a cloudy day, but from here it just looks gross. Plus, he buttoned up and didn't wear a tie.

This looks like something Paula Abdul would wear early in her career, because it was the late 80s and this would be considered fashionable. Thankfully, we don't consider this a good look nowadays.

We still hate animal prints and Samantha Ronson has some yellow zebra str...

Singer Adam Lambert has come to the defense of Miley Cyrus after the former Hannah Montana star caused an uproar over her MTV Video Music Awards performance Sunday night.

The former American Idol runner-up says that Miley, whose sexually-charged performance with pop star Robin Thicke has been heavily criticized, was just "having fun".

The teen singer took to the stage wagging her tongue and twerking to hit single "We Can't Stop" before stripping down to a fleshtone pair of rubber undergarments while Thicke took the stage to belt out his hit "Blurred Lines". The performance featured severa...

'American Idol' Recap: Angie Miller's Shocking Exit + Finale Preview

May 10th, 2013 8:31am EDT
Angie Miller is eliminated on AMERICAN IDOL
Since Kelly Clarkson, it's only happened once and this season it isn't going to happen again.

'American Idol' has developed a curious pattern over the years: That of never getting its winner right. Every year a clear winner emerges early, and every year that clear winner goes home before the finale. It doesn't pay to be the best in this competition.

After years of seeing this happen, it's become clear why the best contestant never wins: It becomes boring to vote for them. They peak too soon and after months of being on top and the clear favorite, it just seems unnecessary to keep voting f...

You Must See These Terrible Album Covers!

March 5th, 2013 6:59pm EST
Are These The Worst Album Covers Of All Time?
Some singers and musicians just don't have much talent when it comes to having an eye for artwork.

Most of the time an album cover has a lot to do with sales, so imagery that's interesting, sexy, mysterious, etc., is always a good thing.

Take Miley Cyrus's 2013 release, "Bangerz", for example. The peach-to-purple color mix with two photographs of houseplants with a superimposed miley staring blankly at the camera looks more like something out of "Miami Vice" circa 1984 than a modern pop record. Throw in the neon "Bangerz" sign and it now looks like a newspaper promo for a south Florida st...

Most people in Hollywood don't like to reveal their true age, but there are exceptions. Helen Mirren, who fluxuates between white and white/blonde hair, proudly wears her true color on screen and off.

Last year the actress, 67, was named the best body in show business by members of British gym chain LA Fitness. Apparently, age (and hair color) doesn't matter.

Some younger stars are also embracing the white/grey trend. Singers P!nk, Adam Lambert and Ellie Goulding have all experimented with the pigment-free shade.

Phillip Phillips Continues Worrying Trend Of 'White Guy With Guitar' Winners For 'American Idol'

May 24th, 2012 4:07pm EDT
Phillip Phillips
Nothing against Phillip Phillips, who surely has some talent, but his win is the latest in a line of what fans have coined "White Guys with Guitars," or "WGWG." With ratings and record sales getting lower, can American Idol do anything to curb the trend?

Since the music competition allowed contestants to play instruments while singing, the show has seen David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze, Scotty McCreery, and Phillip Phillips take the prize over a more varied and (arguably) talented field. McCreery is a bit different, slanting towards crooning country instead of the light pop the rest of t...

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has handed over the sum to bosses at the Trevor Project, a suicide prevention organization for troubled lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teens.
