Gay man invades the Playboy Mansion
Dec 01 2012 | I'm not usually one to give in to celebrity schadenfreude, since most of the time I don't give a donkey-bonking shit about celebrities' lives. However, with the title "I Went to the Playboy Mansion (and It Was Kinda Depressing)," by Vice writer Jamie Taete, whose other titles i

Dec 01 2012 | I'm not a big Adam Lambert fan, or much of a Rihanna fan either, but I saw this song and I really liked it!
I don't have much to say other than that. I just wanted to share Adam Lambert's (who's looking really gorgeous) nice cover of Rihanna's "Stay" with all you lov
