RIP George Michael
This was shocking…
The out singer, who launched his career as the front man of ’80s duo Wham! and went on to a successful solo career, is said to have died “peacefully at home.”
Michael came out as gay publicly in 1998. “This is as good of a time as any,” he told CNN‘s Jim Moret at the time. “I want to say that I have no problem with people knowing that I’m in a relationship with a man right now. I have not been in a relationship with a woman for almost 10 years.”
David Bowie’s Inspiration
I can’t believe it’s almost a year since David Bowie died. His creative legacy, however, lives on.
As the one-year anniversary of David Bowie’s death from cancer approaches, Hollywood Reporter reached out to various collaborators on the pop icon’s off-Broadway show “Lazarus” and final two albums, gathering accounts of the artist’s final days, which he spent honing his last releases in a flurry of creative energy.

Half Night Stands and Millennials
This falls under the category of water is wet. It’s just a new way to phrase something that’s been happening all along, at least is was for me.
Blogger Brittany Wong at Huff Post defines half-night stands as “an abbreviated version of the one-night stand,” where one sexual partner promptly makes their exit shortly after getting off instead of staying the entire night, thus avoiding the awkward morning after.
I could go into more detail, but I won’t. If the millennials think they’ve invented something new, I don’t want to be the one to kill the dream.
