High Five Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande For Making Our Day

To help promote her just-launched Happy Hippie Foundation – which raises awareness and funds for homeless youth – Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus have dressed up as a unicorn and a mouse and cover a Crowded House song.


The two singers joined forces on a green, blow-up couch to sing Don’t Dream It’s Over for Miley’s Backyard Sessions.

Listen to the two ladies’ vocals complement each other below.

During the track’s musical interlude, Cyrus asks Grande, “Are you a mouse or a bear? Whatever you are, you’re probably the cutest mouse-bear anyone’s ever seen.”

Teaming up with Facebook, last week Cyrus started the Backyard Sessions performances with a stunning duet with Joan Jett and Laura Jane Grace.

Cate Blanchett Confirms Her Past Relationships With Women

Blink and you’ll miss it – but Cate Blanchett just confirmed she has enjoyed past relationships with women.

In new piece with Variety, the six-time Oscar nominee talks about playing the lead in Carol, a new lesbian romance based on Patricia Highsmith‘s novel The Price of Salt. In the article, Blanchett also mentions that she has had relationships with women “many times” before – wow!

From the article…

When asked if this is her first turn as a lesbian, Blanchett curls her lips into a smile. “On film — or in real life?” she asks coyly. Pressed for details about whether she’s had past relationships with women, she responds: “Yes. Many times,” but doesn’t elaborate. Like Carol, who never “comes out” as a lesbian, Blanchett doesn’t necessarily rely on labels for sexual orientation. “I never thought about it,” she says of how she envisioned the character. “I don’t think Carol thought about it.” The actress studied the era by picking up banned erotic novels. “I read a lot of girl-on-girl books from the period,” she says.

This is the first time she’s spoken about having been with women. However, the actress is currently is married to Australian writer/director Andrew Upton, so any further outings with women will be pretty limited.

Carol is an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 50s lesbian pulp novel The Price of Salt. While lesbian pulp novels usually ended in tragedy (it would have been blasphemous to end them in blissful romance) Highsmith broke barriers by doing the opposite. In The Price of Salt the lead falls for a young woman – a department store clerk and artist – and spoiler alert (!) it ends in a way that lets us imagine that the two women end up happy together.


On the film, director Todd Haynes says

In some ways, the event of a gay love story is less surprising every day. But I think love stories are hard to pull off, period. They require external forces that keep the lovers apart.”


Cate is now one of several public women who have spoken about having relationships with women, while also not labelling themselves, much like Miley Cyrus.

Watch | Raven Symoné Supports Miley Cyrus on Not Wanting to be Labeled Bisexual

While serving as a guest host on “The View,” Raven-Symoné said she supports Miley Cyrus‘ desire not to be labeled for her sexuality, but added: “Miley, I agree with you and, girl, I said it first.”

Symoné was filling in for Whoopi Goldberg, who was dealing with a family issue, when Cyrus’ recent interview, in which she said she has relationships with both men and women, but does not want to be labeled “gay” or “straight” came up.

“I think I heard that somewhere,” Symoné said. She then played a clip from a 2014 interview she did with Oprah Winfrey.

I don’t want to be labeled gay. I want to be labeled a human who loves humans. I’m tired of being labeled. I’m an American. I’m not an African-American. I’m an American.”

Speak on the view, Symone said of the backlash she received after the interview

They thought I said I wasn’t black and I didn’t want to be labeled. Miley, I agree, we should not be labeled because it creates tension between people and you feel like you can look down, like that’s this type of person and this is how I should feel about you.”

Co-host Rosie Perez added

I think it’s a generational thing because I think that there was a time where labels were necessary because we were disenfranchised. We were ostracized from the conversation. So to put ourselves into the conversation, to take our seat at the table, there was a need to say, ‘Wait a minute, I am this. I’m not ashamed of it and I’m going to speak out'”

Miley Cyrus: “I’m Not Hiding My Sexuality”

“There Are Times in My Life Where I’ve Had boyfriends or Girlfriends”

In an interview with TIME, singer Miley Cyrus explains that she doesn’t like to put herself in a box – she’s not bi, lesbian, *or* straight.

I’m not hiding my sexuality. For me, I don’t want to label myself as anything. We love putting people in categories, but what I like sexually isn’t going to label me as a person. There are times in my life where I’ve had boyfriends or girlfriends. And there are times where I just love being with myself and don’t want to give part of myself away to someone else.”


In a new interview with the Associated Press, Cyrus admits that not all of her relationships have been “straight, heterosexual” ones. Though apparently, “Cyrus didn’t elaborate” any further in the interview.

The 22-year-old wants everyone else to have as much freedom and empathy as she does, which is why she’s launching the Happy Hippie Foundation to help homeless and LGBT youth by providing digital support groups.

The position I’m in, I feel like I’ve got a lot of power. But so many kids don’t feel that way. They’re under their parents’ rule.”


Miley Cyrus Says Not All of Her Relationships Have Been “Straight, Heterosexual Ones”

Miley Cyrus admits not all her relationships have been ‘straight, heterosexual’ ones.

The 22-year-old singer hinted she might be bisexual while launching her new Happy Hippie Foundation to help homeless and LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender] youth. She declined to elaborate further, but hopes to use her provocative image to promote more important issues in the future.


She did go on to comment on the issue of youth homelessness on the back of recently launching the Happy Hippy Foundation, which seeks to offer support for homeless LGBT youths.

No one should have to hide who they really are, no matter what his or her name, gender or status. That’s why Happy Hippies are here to say that every life is valuable!

The position I’m in, I feel like I’ve got a lot of power. But so many kids don’t feel that way. They’re under their parents’ rule.

When you have all eyes on you, what are you saying? And that’s what I had to ask myself a lot. It’s like, I know you’re going to look at me more if my (breasts) are out, so look at me. And then I’m going to tell you about my foundation for an hour and totally hustle you.””

Her Foundation will also launch new music, including a collaboration between Joan Jett and Ariana Grande, to raise awareness of the cause.

It’s not going to be an overnight process. You’ve got to get into a lot of people’s brains and you’ve got to really make this a topic.”

Commenting on her sometimes controversial looks, Cyrus said pushing the envelope sometimes helped her progress causes like the Happy Hippy Foundation.

Cyrus, who recently split from Patrick Schwarzenegger, also admits she struggled with traditional gender expectations when she was younger.

She told Out magazine:

I didn’t want to be a boy. I kind of wanted to be nothing. I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that’s what I had to understand: Being a girl isn’t what I hate, it’s the box that I get put into.”

Queer Ally, Miley Cyrus Shows Her Support For LGBT Community

Queer ally, Miley Cyrus has shown her pro-LGBT support once again by becoming the face of MAC’s Viva Glam campaign.


Viva Glam campaign is MAC’s AIDS Fund program, which donates money raised toward HIV/AIDS research. Previous celebrities to serve as the face of the campaign include Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and RuPaul.

Cyrus has been a long-time supporter of the queer community, having previously claimed that she believes ‘everyone’s a little bit gay‘. She also has the equality symbol tattooed on her middle finger in support of same-sex marriage and applauded The Disney Channel for including a same-sex couple in their programming.

Last week, she discussed with Good Morning America her new MAC partnership, as well as her commitment to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

“I’m not the way people try to make me seem. I don’t go around just trashing hotel rooms and partying… I think [it is important to empower] those affected by HIV and giving them hope — letting them know there’s people out there fighting for them — especially not just for the cure but to end this kind of stereotype. I think it’s fun for young people to go buy a lipstick and know that it’s actually going towards changing the way their future is going to be.”

Miley Cyrus

Good Morning America also joined Cyrus as took some time out to visit the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Youth Center and to meet with Center CEO Lorri L. Jean and the homeless LGBT youth served by the Center.

Following the tour, she joined a session of the Center’s Street Smart program — a facilitated discussion group that helps and encourages homeless LGBT youth to develop safer sex practices.

“I was quite impressed by Miley and by her genuine passion to help homeless youth,” Jean said in a statement, “as well as her concern for the growing HIV infection rate among gay and bisexual young people. It’s a huge concern here in Los Angeles where 87 percent of those living with HIV are gay or bisexual males and a staggering 40 percent of homeless youth are LGBT. I’m grateful for the attention she’s bringing to the issue and look forward to working with her.”

Longtime LGBT ally Joan Rivers Dies Aged 81

Joan Rivers, the fantastic acid-tongued comedian, died Thursday. She was 81.

Rivers, had been on life support in Mount Sinai Hospital since having a cardiac arrest in New York last week.

In a statement, her daughter Melissa said she died surrounded by family and friends.

“My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”

Melissa Rivers

The actress and stand-up comedian is well known for her legendary put-downs. She had insults ready for all races, genders and creeds.

She had more recently turned her razor-sharp tongue on the red carpet’s worst dressed celebrities, hosting the E! network’s Fashion Police.

Rivers never mellowed during her half-century-long career. She moved from longtime targets such as the weight problems of Elizabeth Taylor, to newer foes such as Miley Cyrus.

“I have never wanted to be a day less than I am. People say, ‘I wish I were 30 again.’ Nahhh! I’m very happy HERE. It’s great. It gets better and better. And then, of course, we die,”

Joan Rivers

No performer worked harder, was more resilient or tenacious. She never stopped writing, testing and fine-tuning her jokes. However, she didn’t just fire her barbs at others, she was always prepared to joke about herself, and in particular her plastic surgery.

In 2010, she tweeted a joke about her death, saying: With all the plastic surgery I’ve had I’m worried that when I die, God won’t recognize me!

Shortly after her death was announced, tributes poured in from the world of entertainment.

Kathleen Hanna on Women Who Make America

Kathleen Hanna is a New York City-based artist, musician, feminist activist, and punk zine writer. She is best known for her groundbreaking performances as a member of the feminist 90′s punk band, Bikini Kill, and her more recent multimedia group, Le Tigre.

Hanna recently spoke to MAKERS. MAKERS is a digital and video storytelling platform that aims to be the largest and most dynamic collection of women’s stories ever assembled. Through original interviews, MAKERS brings together well-known figures such as Hillary Clinton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Oprah Winfrey, with the trailblazers that need to be known such as Christy Haubegger, the founder of Latina Magazine and Kathrine Switzer, the first women to run the Boston Marathon.

Kathleen Hanna – Women Who Make America


On another note, at the begin of August Hanna entered into a social dialog with Miley Cyrus. It all began when Miley paid respect to Hanna on Instagram – she posted two photos of the Bikini Kill singer accompanied by the captions “girls rule” and coolest ever”. Clearly enamoured with the posts, Hanna responded not only to thank Cyrus, but to suggest that they make a record together.

Last year year, Cyrus described herself as “one of the biggest feminists in the world because I tell women to not be scared of anything”. Hanna backed Cyrus’s feminist credentials in an interview with Tiny Mix Tapes, saying:

“I’m glad the word ‘feminist’ is being talked about and that influential pop stars are bringing up this conversation. If she says she’s a feminist, then who I am to stop her? I’m not the feminist police.”

Queer Fashion | The Bold and Beautiful Dare to Wear

Queer Fashion | The Bold and Beautiful Dare to Wear – They say that fortune favours the brave. In the case of this season’s boldest accessories, fashion fortune favours those who dare to wear these eye-catching outfit extras. Each trend is a bold statement in itself so make sure that you keep the rest of your look simple, and let your bling be the focal point.

Also keep in mind, to pick the daring jewellery trend that goes best with your frame. Do not pick pieces that will overwhelm you. The key to this trend is confidence, and knowing what bold accessory works well with your style and personality.

These pieces prove that there are fashion risks worth taking.

Ear Cuffs – Popularised by red carpet rebels, such as Rihanna, Cara Delevingne and Miley Cyrus, Ear Cuffs have now become one of the most coveted accessories. These punk influenced ear jewellery has many incarnations, from a simple hammered silver cuff to a full-on brass cuff that envelopes the entire side of your ear. Usually just worn in one ear, you can wear it on both if you’re feeling extra gutsy.

Body Chain – Body Chains have long been a staple in the closets of edgy fashionistas. Kate Hudson is the latest celeb to be seen walking around with body chains. Fair warning though, this a very body-conscious trend so better hit the gym before stepping out of the house draped in body chains.

Embellished Sunglasses – Seen on the runways of Dolce and Gabbana, Prada, and Roberto Cavalli, this trend is definitely one to watch. Fashion editor, Anna dello Russo, was one of the first ones to adopt this trend. Wearing large sunglasses outlined in large pearls, or large floral appliqués—this trend is most definitely made for the fearless fashionista. Anna Karin-Karlsson is the latest designer to adopt this bold and brash trend, check out her wares if you dare.

New Bondage-Themed Video From Miley Cyrus Conjures Grace Jones

Miley Cyrus’ new video ‘Tongue Tied’ isn’t a single — it’s a Quentin Jones-directed, Grace Jones-referencing fashion film.

The bondage-themed visuals look like a mixture of Slave To The Rhythm and Madonna circa ‘Erotic’, with Cyrus wearing that bondage lightly – and literally. She stretches the definition of kink and turns it into pop.

Watch and enjoy…

12 highly, highly irritating things lesbians do on social media

I saw this article and smiled, then realised half the things on this lists I actually do… sign. Orginally written by Sophia M T Carter for her blog ‘Anything Can Meaning Everything

(p.s. the picture is Miley Cyrus and not a lesbian, but I think you get my point for using it).

12 highly, highly irritating things lesbians do on social media

  1. Selfie after selfie after selfie and so on. They don’t even try and change their hair, makeup, clothes or even change the background.
  2. Selfies taken half naked….or even worse…in the shower. Why? Just why would you do that?
  3. Selfies taken in the shower when they probably should have stayed covered up.
  4. Selfies taken when they finally decided to dress and you think…shit…they don’t look any better……
  5. Selfies with a caption professing their vanity It always seems to be the less blessed ones, or captions saying they feel sad or lonely. Great idea here. Maybe…just maybe if you stopped taking so many photos of yourselves and got yourself outside you might actually meet some friends that would stop you feel lonely and sad?
  6. Status updates…CONSTANTLY! Shut UP! I don’t care that your girlfriend left you anymore, it may be a revelation, but I’m fairly certain that my news feed cant take it anymore We get it…your sad, but she left you a year ago…move on!
  7. Status updates about how they are newly Lesbian and they’ve found themselves and the one they love. I mean I really am all for that, but please stop posting pictures and how much you love each other and the PET NAMES (princess, pookie etc)….you are littering my fucking news feed and I really am sick of looking at it.
  8. Lesbians adding lesbians and lesbians and lesbians…until they end up with about one million lesbians on their friends list of who they don’t even know, and probably turn out to be creepy old men pretending to be female.
  9. The ‘I don’t give a shit about being single, I’m loving life’ …your fooling no one. I’m just saying.
  10. Professions about how many girls they hooked up with…if you have to say that to everyone all over fb or twitter, it looks kind of desperate…leading us all to the logical conclusion, your lying. You are not a ‘player’ you just do what the rest of us do, go home…alone…have a pizza and go to sleep.
  11. Use of language such as and I quote ‘rubbing fannys’ is gross…like do you actually have any sort of dignity…or respect for yourself?
  12. Lesbians who profess through instagram, twitter, facebook and god knows what else…that they live some kind of Miley Cyrus lifestyle. Breaks my heart to say it…but you don’t. Your not, nor will you ever be…Miley Cyrus.
