The Daily Dig: Gay kisses and MJ

2009-09-08 15:11

It's raining bigots
The Generations' gay TV kiss has sparked an uproar. These people's lives seem to be so boring that they've actually got time to worry about what others do in bed. Thami Mngqolo, the actor who plays the gay character Senzo , was featured in City Press on Sunday 6th Sept, desperately  attempting to justify his decision to play the role, in an article that also mentions he has a steady girlfriend (just so everyone's clear about what he does with his wors in real life.) Apparently fans of the show have been verbally abusive in public, and he's keeping a low profile to avoid homophobic attacks from people who can't tell the difference between an actor and the characters they play on TV.. This, folks, is why democracy has failed the planet.

Jessica's new "career"
Jessica Simpson's taken up modelling after stints as a singer-songwriter, actress, reality TV star, professional celeb and finally, cocktail waitress, floundered. TheSuperficial.com describes her as exhibiting the grace and poise of a "crack barrel waitress".  What the pictures do provide is proof that she's not - in fact – an alien from outer space but actually 100% human. But someone needs to tell her that human women look better in bras.  Among the many stories in the international rumour mill, including a nipple slip from one of Gossip Girl's young starlets, Lindsay Lohan's new bikini body and other "stuff", Jessica's new career seems the most interesting. For now.

Jacko’s glove sells for a fortune
"A white glove worn by Michael Jackson sold at auction for $49 000 in Australia on Sunday" reports News24.com. Interestingly, this sum is probably quite similar to the amount paid by O.J. Simpson years ago, in an attempt to make another glove disappear. And there's not much more to say, but what what gossip update would be complete without a mention of Jacko. Even though he's finally been buried. Speaking of which, now that he's dead, Disney Theme Parks consider him safe-for-kids for the first time since the 80s. No, really! Bang Showbiz reports that "Bosses at the Californian theme park are considering bringing back 'Captain EO', a 17-minute 3D movie starring the late ‘King of Pop' which was originally shown at the venue in the 80s and 90s."

Matt Damon an ungrateful cad
Matt Damon claims gaining weight for his new movie was a blast.. "It was very, very fun, probably the most fun time I've had working because I didn't have to go to the gym after work and I just ate everything I could see." Matt, 38, feasted on fast food and crisps to put on the weight, making sure he snacked throughout the day, says Bang Showbiz. So visiting South Africa, and sleeping with Winona Ryder, Eva Mendes, and Luciana Barroso doesn't rate as high as a packet of crisps? As Max Normal once put it: "Stay at home".

Gay kisses, Michael's glove and Jessica’s job: it's your gossip on the go.
