Bonus Quote of the Day


"I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man."

-- Ricky Martin, coming out via a post on his website

Whoa, he's -- gay? Is there nothing left I can believe in?

Next you'll tell me George W. Bush isn't really a fighter pilot or a cowboy.

Speaking of which, this picture suddenly gets a whole lot funnier.

And interestingly enough, Dubya looked gay pretending to be both of those.

Next up: Water reportedly found to be wet. Sky blue.

Well, J. Dack, it wasn't QUITE as obvious as George Michael.

Only 80% obvious in this case...

yeah yeah we all knew that he was gay - but doing so not as a pop star, but as a musician who wants to speak to the latin community, takes some serious balls.

And yeah, it sucks that there's a double standard - but that's how it is. A delightful tv star and broadway star can come out of the closet last year and be one of the entertainers of the year. For a former Menudo, someone who's coming out confession had to be translated into English - it's a little bit harder.

Good one, Kanye.

Shocking. next up: Madonna is a Tranny! O RLY?

Next, Ricky Martin will shock the world by admitting he's not as talented as Selena was.

Man, I remember back when this news would have resulted in garment-rending anguish for the girls in my eighth grade class.

Dull surprise aside (didn't he say he was bisexual last year? I guess he came out of the closet one toe at a time), good for him.

@Alanna & J.Dack: HA! (channeling Chris Matthews)

Matt, Selena was Mexican. J-Lo, who played Selena in the made-for-tv movie, is the Puerto Rican you're probably thinking of. There's a difference. The real question is: Whose more talented-Martin or J-Lo. srsly, I'll be scratching my head over that answer for the rest of the day.
