Page 1 Consider (06/28)

  • Tangled: Nathaniel thinks it's no coincidence that cardboard cutouts of two notoriously closeted gay Hollywood stars from the remake of "Hairspray" were used at San Francisco Gay Pride. I think he's on to something (of course they needed stand-ins: Queen Latifah was too busy with the Dykes on Bikes crowd and god only knows which backroom John Travolta had wandered off to). (FilmExperience)

  • He Cannot Can Be Serious: Former tennis bad boy John McEnroe has finally put his famous temper to good use in a new commercial for PETA encouraging pet owners to spay or neuter their animals. (PETA via The PETA Files)

  • Reunion Tour: But does anyone even know who the Spice Girls are anymore? (And what is that android doing on the left???) (AP)

  • No Escape: Ex-Journey singer Steve Perry talks about the resurgence of his former band's 1981 hit "Don't Stop Believin'" -- which actually had become an iTunes bestseller when "Laguna Beach" used it a couple years ago and is now red-hot because of "The Sopranos" and "The Clintons." WARNING: don't count on a "real" Journey reunion. This bitterness runs way too deep; even Aamer Haleem would have no hope of reuniting this band. (Newsweek)

  • At Least She Lost Rod Stewart: Slim Fast has signed up model Rachel Hunter to be the spokesmodel for its new "Find Your Slim" campaign -- only she doesn't think she needs to lose weight (" I look very horsy when I get thin. It's not attractive:), has never had a Slim Fast shake and thinks it's "irrelevant" if she's being paid or not to endorse a product she knows nothing about. The only good thing about the interview is they ask her what she thought of Tyra Banks saying she felt great at 161 pounds --and then immediately losing weight(!). (Newsweek)

  • Paris Hilton Superstar: It all makes sense now: She's an Aquarius. (NYT)

  • Make it Stop: President Bush, moving toward a constitutional showdown with Congress, asserted executive privilege Thursday and rejected lawmakers' demands for documents that could shed light on the firings of federal prosecutors. Is it 2009 yet? (AP)

  • Milan Dandies: On looking like a billion bucks. (NYT

    "WARNING: don't count on a "real" Journey reunion. This bitterness runs way too deep; even Aamer Haleem would have no hope of reuniting this band"

    But I don't get that from the linked article. If the paycheck were right, I'm sure we'd see a Journey with Steve Perry again...
