I Love You Phillip Morris. The movie opens March 26th in the US. Read this excerpt from the current issue of Out Magazine, where Ewan discusses the trouble the film has had getting released.
"Despite the fact that it stars perhaps the most bankable star in Hollywood -- the worldwide gross of Carrey’s movies is more than $4 billion dollars -- and, opposite him, its most talented, I Love You Phillip Morris, has languished undistributed domestically for more than a year, even after a strong showing at its Sundance debut in 2009. “At Sundance everyone assumed it would be snapped up,” says McGregor, “but it wasn’t.” Perhaps one reason is that the central character is an unlovable (or uneasily loved) sociopathic scammer. But a more likely reason is that in cells, on bunks, on boats, before sunsets, after sunsets, on divans, over ottomans, without panning away or dissolving to white, the two men kiss, fondle, fuck, blow, suck, hold hands, dance, murmur, and eye. In short, they act like lovers do, and, because both Morris and Russell are openly gay men and their gayness seems not to trouble them in the slightest, this is a dicey commercial proposition."

Johnny Weir didn't let the "fur" controversy distract his work in the men's short program in Vancouver tonight. His performance was full of fierce confidence and uninhibited androgyny, something that really kicked the entertainment factor of the Olympics up a notch. Dressed in a pink and black get up that many on twitter are comparing to Adam Lambert. In my opinion, Weir is a bit more interesting than Lambert. So bummed he didn't place too high, but quite the performance indeed! Sassy.
Lady Gaga, wearing one of her most outrageous get-ups yet, paid tribute to the late Alexander McQueen at the Brit Awards tonight. Gaga opened with a beautiful piano rendition of "Telephone" before snapping into an absolutely bizarre performance art interpretation of "Dance in the Dark". This performance is so bold for a huge pop star these days. I'm impressed.

Lady Gaga opened the Grammy's this year with the theatricality we have all come to know and love from America's greatest current pop star. The performance - a medley of "Poker Face", "Speechless" and "Your Song" - featured a riveting duet and duel of the keys with Elton John.
