On the cover of Out Magazine November 2008 issue is the very hot, very talented actor James Franco. The question is "GOT MILK?" Well I don't drink milk but, for some reason, looking at this cover I've never wanted milk so badly in my life. Haha, I'm talking about the movie of course. That's right, James Franco stars opposite Sean Penn in the new Gus Van Sant's biopic called Milk about slain gay San Francisco politician Harvey Milk.
Sean Penn tells Madonna- "I just broke my cherry kissing a guy."
That guy was James Franco. Damn, so lucky Sean Penn!
Ambiguous Pete Wentz is on the cover of August 2008 Out Magazine. I know Pete through friends, I've read about Pete and his band Fall Out Boy, but I really feel like this article in particular shows a more vulnerable side of this sensitive music mogul. Pete Wentz shares with Out about being teased in school and how the name calling and rumors never seems to stop into adult hood and now marriage.
Pete on being "Out"-
“There’s part of me that’s like, Fuck you, I do what I want.”
“Homophobia is the last acceptable hatred.”
"“Our culture bombards us with this idea that you’re not that, and if you are that, there’s something wrong with you, and then we’re going to call you that, and then it’s an insult.”

This is Out Magazine's February 2008 issue. To me it looks like an orgy. Oh hey! Actually, how many people have to be involved for it to be called an orgy? Huh? So yeah for all the guys who love guys and the girls who love guys, here you go... You're welcome!

You Probably Think This Song is About You
Think quirky singer Katy Perry's new song, "Ur So Gay" (now available on iTunes), is an ode to her beloved gay pals? Think again. We caught up with the rising young pop star (and friend of Mika) to get the inside story on the cheeky single -- which is actually about her straight, guy-liner-wearing ex-boyfriend -- and her love for Freddie Mercury, Alexander McQueen, and her "main gay," actor Markus Molinari.
What distinguishes you from the pack of young female pop singers?
Well, I don’t take myself very seriously. I think some people forget about having a sense of humor. I also do a lot of my own songwriting. I wanna tell stories and make it cool to be a pop star again. It doesn’t seem cool anymore. I wanna be Wonder Woman.
Do you think the song will be offensive to your gay listeners?
I think when everyone hears it, they’ll laugh. It’s very funny and positive and kitsch. It’s what Barbra Streisand would be singing if she were my age, I’d hope. I’m getting good energy from it.
As a faux couple, what style do you opt for? Who are your favorite designers?
I opt for the Lolita look mostly. I’m wearing a bathing suit sitting in my management office right now. Very 1940s. I love Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, anything vintage, Coquette in L.A. I like things that are one of a kind. They fit my attitude.
How do you like to see men dress?
I like to see them reflect their personalities. Markus is always in a sports coat, patent leather shoes, a fedora, or a scarf that I always take off him. He’s always ready for a Chanel party. He always has a bow-tie on. I like guys dressed up, but I also like the hip-hop guys, how they’re busting out all the neon and crazy-ass shoes.
