Jennifer Hudson took a carpool to work with The Late Late Show host James Corden, who makes a stop at the local drive-thru.  Hudson hilariously begins to echo the host’s order by singing it. Soon, the American Idol star sings the complete order and talks about her days working at a drive-thru.

The hilarious clip and plenty of side-by-side karaoke after the jump…

‘Finish Him,’ Mortal Kombat X to Feature First Gay Character

I remember waiting in line for over an hour to play the original Mortal Kombat at my local arcade, choosing my favorite character Sonya, getting made fun of by my brother, but then ultimately demolishing him (sealing the deal wither her Fatality). We became obsessed with the characters’ backstories when the game became available on Sega Genesis, and were first to see the movie in theaters. Now, the game franchise has released the characters in the latest installment, Mortal Kombat X, and it includes a gay character—my how times have changed.

Kung Jin has been confirmed by the game’s cinematic director, to be the first gay character.

Kotaku explains how the revelation occurs in the game. In a flashback clip: “Raiden says, ‘Self-loathing has always been an unfortunate part of your make-up.’ Later, after the thunder god tries to get Kung Jin to follow in his ancestors’ footsteps and become a warrior monk, Kung Jin says, ‘I can’t… They won’t accept..’ Raiden—who knows what the young mortal’s talking about because, well, he’s a god—replies by saying, ‘They care about only what is in your heart; not whom your heart desires.’

Theater Buff: Michael Cusumano of ‘An American in Paris’

April 16th, 2015 Joseph Pedro

Every third Wednesday of the month, a fabulous actor/singer/dancer fills out editor Matthew Wexler’s nosey little questionnaire and offers a glimpse of what he looks like from a bit closer than the mezzanine. This month we visit Michael Cusumano, who appears in the new Broadway musical, An American in Paris. Based on the Academy Award-winning film and directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, it’s one of the hottest tickets of the season. Tres bien!

Name:
Michael Cusumano

Hometown:
Freeport, New York

What would you do on your ultimate Paris dream date?
If I was to imagine my ultimate Paris dream date I would chose the holiday time of year because I fell in love with the outdoor Christmas market. We would hold hands browsing the cute shops, while of course sipping a mulled wine. Get the grand! Then take a ride on the Ferris wheel, and finish the night being cheesy by going to the top of the Eiffel Tower— standing on top of the world and getting lost in each other’s eyes. (I’m a dreamer if you couldn’t tell!)

Favorite French pastry and where to get in NYC?
I’m not a big pastry fan, but I tell ya, I fell in love with ham and cheese crepes. I ate a bit too many while in Paris. There came a time where I had to force myself to walk another route back to the hotel so I wouldn’t pass my favorite crepe stand. If there’s a good crepe place in New York City, please don’t tell me cause I will be in trouble again.

“I think I would have laughed if someone said that in five years I was going to be in a competition to be on the cover of Men’s Health magazine,” says Aydian Dowling, a transgender male blogger. “I would be like, ‘No way would you be putting me shirtless on a magazine!’ ” Dowling is currently leading in online votes for Men’s Health’s Ultimate Guide Search. The 27-year-old New York native has been hitting the gym. “I started bodybuilding because I wanted my outer body to feel more masculine like my inner soul does, so I started training and it really just changed my whole life,” he says. “I started to feel better. You’re forced in front of a mirror to make sure that you’re doing an exercise properly, and after five days a week in front of a mirror, you start to get used to your body. You start to appreciate it.” He decided to share his fitness obsession with other transgender individuals via a YouTube Collaboration BeefHeads Fitness.

“Hillary Clinton supports marriage equality and hopes the Supreme Court will come down on the side of same-sex couples being guaranteed that constitutional right,” Hillary’s spokesperson, Adrienne Elrod, told BuzzFeed.

Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Ad Gets an 18+ Rating Because of Gay Couple

A Russian television station that aired Hillary Clinton’s campaign ad marked the family-friendly spot with an 18+ rating because of the country’s draconian anti-gay propaganda laws. In the ad, a gay couple is seen holding hands, so the station, TV Rain, said it was simply following the “law.” “There are no legal precedents for this law, so we just don’t know what comes under this law and (what) doesn’t,” a TV Rain spokesperson told CNN. “Therefore, fearing to break the law—especially given the high attention to TV Rain from the supervising authorities—we decided to put a marker (on the video).

Help Stop Shell’s Dangerous Off-Shore Drilling Exploration in the Arctic

April 14th, 2015 Joseph Pedro

Tell Shell “Hands off the Arctic” by signing a new Change.org petition.

Royal Dutch Shell’s efforts to drill in the U.S. Arctic have been plagued by mistakes and problems. Yet after years of failure, Shell recently requested that the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) retroactively suspend its leases.

If BSEE grants the request, the deadline for Shell’s leases would be extended by five years – giving Shell the opportunity to prolong the Arctic’s exposure to drilling danger for free.

In 1984, I became committed to protecting our planet’s oceans after my family and I moved to Santa Monica Canyon, about ten blocks from the Pacific. At the time I was starring on the show “Cheers” and was taking a walk with my daughters on the beach when we came to a sign that read: “Water polluted, no swimming.” I didn’t know how to explain to them why the beach was closed. That was my call to do whatever I could to protect our oceans.

Shell already has a dangerous track record, and if it’s allowed five more years to drill on the leases in question, the Arctic’s polar bears, ice seals, belugas and many other iconic inhabitants will be thrust further in harm’s way. The oil industry cannot adequately contain or clean a spill in the Arctic Ocean, and a single accident could cause serious harm to the sensitive ocean environment and the communities and wildlife that depend on it.

Shell is the only oil company still actively exploring drilling in the U.S. Arctic Ocean. If BSEE denies Shell’s request for an extension, it will deal a major blow to Shell’s efforts.

Polar bears and hundreds of other majestic creatures depend on a healthy Arctic Ocean for survival, but their habitat is at risk. If the federal government continues to allow Shell to explore and drill in this wild and wonderful environment, we can be sure that spills will follow.

Just because Shell has spent a lot of money trying doesn’t mean the government should bend the rules to accommodate them or any other company.

Click here to sign the petition.
