Blake Shelton, who you best know for being on that singing show and for being in a totally real and passion-filled relationship with Gwen Stefani, has some thoughts on politics. Specifically, he has some non-subtle thoughts on mildewed corn muffin Donald Trump and “political correctness,” thoughts that function as a highly audible dog whistle. Blake Shelton: we fucking see you.
Shelton is the cover star of this week’s Billboard, for some reason, where he shared thoughts about his not-fake romance, and also this election. He lamented the way country music has been overtaken by political correctness (...has it?) and praised Trump for speaking his mind:
“In country music, we’re so politically correct and so afraid to possibly upset someone,” he says. Recently a tea party website announced, “Blake Shelton Sides With Trump on Issues of Political Correctness,” dubiously trying to claim him for the right wing.Does the singer support Donald Trump? “I’m not going to have the political conversation with you about Trump, or about Hillary Clinton, but I will tell you this: Whether you love him or hate him, he says what he thinks, and he has proven that you don’t always have to be so afraid. A lot of people are pulling for him, no matter how much Hollywood fights it. I see people who don’t like him go and beat up people that do like him. You tell me, who’s crazy here?”Shelton, who says he will vote in November, adds, “I probably wish there was another option, but there’s not.”
“Saying what he thinks” has, of course, been a cornerstone of Trump’s campaign boasts about himself. It rests on the idea that everyone has the same bigoted, Islamophobic, racist, woman-hating thoughts as Trump, but only he’s bold enough to say them aloud.
It’s not a hugely surprising stance for a wealthy white new-country star to agree with, but maybe don’t pretend like you’re doing something clever here, Shelton, or threading some kind of needle. It’s interesting, too, that Shelton would reference Trump haters “beating up” Trump fans. He probably means metaphorically, as opposed to the Trump fans literally beating a homeless man or sucker-punching protesters.
“Political correctness,” the boogeyman under the bed of every person with literally nothing else to oppress them, has been weighing on Shelton for some time. In June, he opined that the PC among us “need to take a chill pill” and stop reacting every time he tweets something dumb:
“More than ever, I’ve been hitting “delete” before I send out a tweet,” Shelton said. “I’m just tired of the drama that comes with it, the absolute crybaby reaction you get from how politically correct the world is now.”“You just second guess everything: ‘I’ll upset this bunch,’” he continued. “It just sucks the life out of the world for me. Everybody needs to take a chill pill.”
Anyway, follow Blake on Twitter for more political opinions that he probably thinks are purposefully vague and non-partisan.

Wow.. Chaos at the RNC and now chaos at the DNC.. I can't keep up!! Did Clinton really just hire Shultz or is that just gossip?!!— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) July 25, 2016
Update, 2:05 p.m.:
Blake says he hasn’t “enforced” a candidate; goes on to say a bunch of other things.
Hey before this gets going like it always does... I haven't enforced ANYBODY for president. And I not going to. I don't do that shit.— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) July 28, 2016
"Thank you for being a friend..."From: NewNowNext
In an eerie take on the iconic Golden Girls opening sequence, one Facebook user has swapped out the faces of Rose, Blanche, Dorothy and Sophia for those of Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Mike Pence and Kim Jong-Un.
At turns hilarious and terrifying, the video shows the tyrannical gal pals indulging in the favorite pastimes of the Miami ladies: gossip over cheesecake, sassy wit-offs and even a tap dance routine.
At a time when world politics are bleak, and the future even bleaker, it’s comforting to indulge in a bit of lighthearted absurdity, even if it does desecrate something as sacred as “Thank You For Being A Friend.”
Check it out below.
"It's nerve-racking to go from young adult to 'extreme' adult," says the "King Cobra" actor.
Teen Beach Movie actor Garrett Clayton is shaking off his Disney shackles by starring as Sean Lockhart (a.k.a. Brent Corrigan) in the gay-porn thriller King Cobra.
“Being touched by one stranger alone is like a lot, let alone eight, and you’re kind of pulling your clothes off, and you have to sell it,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “At the end of that day, I remember calling my mom and I was like, ‘I don’t know if I can do this.’”
The film, which co-stars Keegan Allen, Christian Slater, James Franco, Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald, recently screened at Outfest, where we got to ask the 25-year-old Clayton about his risqué role.
“It was a lot more artistic than I was expecting it to be, which I really appreciated because it’s such an aggressive movie I thought it was gonna be a lot more… aggressively shot,” he admitted. “It’s nerve-racking to go from young adult to extreme adult.”
“This is not about politics—it is simply the right thing to do.”From: NewNowNext
Songstress Demi Lovato made a splash at the Democratic National Convention Monday night with her prime time performance of “Confident” and her frank discussion about mental health care.
Before performing the hit song, Lovato talked about her personal history with mental illness and the importance of providing accessible treatment for all.
“Like millions of Americans, I am living with mental illness,” she said. “But I am lucky. I had the resources and support to get treatment at a top facility. Unfortunately, too many Americans from all walks of life don’t get help, either because they fear the stigma or cannot afford treatment.”
“Untreated mental illness can lead to devastating consequences, including suicide, substance abuse and long-term medical issues,” she continued. “We can do better. Everyone of us can make a difference…I urge every politician to support laws that will provide better healthcare and support for everyone.
“This is not about politics,” she added. “It is simply the right thing to do.”
In the past, the singer has been open about her issues with bipolar disorder, as well as with eating disorders and substance abuse. For Lovato, the only candidate speaking up for people with struggles like her own is presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.
“I stand here today as proof that you can live a normal and empowered life with mental illness. I am proud to support a presidential candidate who will fight to ensure all people with mental health conditions get the care they need to live fulfilling lives. That candidate is Hillary Clinton,” she said on stage. “Let’s make her the next president of the United States of America.”
Watch Lovato’s full speech and her rousing performance of “Confident” below.
What would your mother say about Grindr?
Looking actor Daniel Franzese bravely opens Grindr for his mother in the latest episode of Daniel Franzese’s Italian Mom, the web series where Ms. Franzese offers advice based on her years of being an Italian mom who’s seen it all.
In this episode, Denise cruises the app for a man and notices a few alarming things right off the bat — most of the men aren’t showing their faces, and the ones that do are almost always sporting duck lips.
“Looks like shit to me,” she says.
Denise has strong feelings about online dating sites (they’re all “just to get laid”) and Italian men in general, but her strongest reaction comes when Daniel explains “No fats, no femmes, no Asians.”
“Terrible!” she interjects after learning how some users filter partners based on race, appearance, and mannerisms.
“Shame on you, you don’t deserve nobody!” Denise yells pointedly into the camera.
“Stay by yourself! In Italian we call you miserabile — you’re miserable, stay that way!”
Amen, Mama D!
"I’m glad common-sense gun policy was in place when Christopher was born," asked Christine Leinonen. "But where was that common sense the day he died?"
On June 12, Christine Leinonen woke up to a nightmare every mother dreads: Her son, Christopher, had been ruthlessly killed at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub—one of 49 innocent people gunned down by a madman.
Leinonen was one of the first parents interviewed, and her anguish will forever be etched in our memories.
Last night she addressed the Democratic National Convention, still devastated but determined to do something about gun violence in this country.
“The weapon that murdered my son fires 30 rounds in one minute,” she told delegates, flanked by Jose Arriagada and Brandon Wolf, both friends of her son who survived the attack.
“An Orlando city commissioner pointed out the terrible math. One minute per gun to fire so many shots.”
Leinonen called for common-sense gun policies, revealing she was a Michigan state trooper when Christopher was born.
“When I went into labor, the hospital put my gun in an off duty safe. I didn’t argue. I know common sense gun policies save lives.”
She also revealed that Christopher, who perished alongside his boyfriend, was a big Hillary Clinton supporter.
Read her full remarks below.
It takes about five minutes for a church bell to ring 49 times. I know this because last month, my son Christopher, his boyfriend Juan and 47 others were murdered at a club in Orlando. Christopher was my only child. As I used to tell him, you can’t do better than perfect.He had so many friends, two of whom are here tonight representing hundreds and hundreds more. All his life, he brought people together. In high school, he won the Anne Frank Humanitarian Award for starting the gay straight alliance.Christopher’s paternal grandparents met and fell in love in a Japanese internment camp. So it was in his DNA that love always trumps hate.Christopher was a big Hillary supporter. That’s why I’m here, so I can tell you about the day he was born. At the time, I was a Michigan state trooper. When I went into labor, the hospital put my gun in an off duty safe. I didn’t argue. I know common sense gun policies save lives.The weapon that murdered my son fires 30 rounds in one minute. An Orlando city commissioner pointed out the terrible math. One minute per gun to fire so many shots, five minutes per bell to honor so many lives. I’m glad common-sense gun policy was in place when Christopher was born, but where was that common sense the day he died?I never want you to ask that question about your child. That’s why I support Hillary Clinton.

"The majority of the staff and bar patrons were mortified."From: NewNowNext
A bar in Medicine Hat, Alberta has reversed an archaic bathroom policy that prohibited transgender people from using the restroom of their choice after a woman posted about her experience at the bar on Tuesday.
River Rising, a transgender Calgary woman visiting the area for a wedding, told Global News that she was banned from using the restroom at the Corona Tavern before she even tried.
According to a post detailing the harassment, Rising claimed bouncers approached her and “asked several inappropriate questions” about her transition and which restroom she intended to use, saying she could’ve been thrown out of the bar “just for being there” if the owner was in.
“I was told my presence would make the women feel uncomfortable,” said Rising. “I told them I had not used a men’s washroom since I was 17 and I had no intention of starting.”
She added: “The majority of the staff and bar patrons were mortified by the opinions of this one manager so despite this person I went on with my night, not using any bathroom at all. Now nearly two weeks later I have been informed this sign has been up and I am disgusted they think this degrading and archaic behavior is acceptable or even legal.”
Staff at the Corona Tavern immediately hung up a sign that read “You must use the bathroom of your birth gender,” before taking it down just as quickly because the policy directly violates Bill 7, legislation that protects Albertans from discrimination based on gender identity.
The sign was replaced with a “gender neutral washroom” sign, though Rising says it’s still not enough.
“The gender neutral washroom is great for someone who identifies outside the gender binary, but for those of us that do, we still have the right to use the washroom of our choice,” she said.
In a statement defending their decision to discriminate against trans patrons, the owners of Corona Tavern said “the clientele that we serve are often under the influence of alcohol and some young men, who are not transgendered [sic] have been claiming to be, to enter the women’s washroom.”
“This has caused some young female patrons to feel unsafe and threatened,” they claimed.
Heaven forbid a young cis woman feels unsafe in the women’s bathroom before a young trans woman in the men’s!
He added: "I'm happy to have a beer or cocktail with anyone I offended."
Australia’s Today Show host Karl Stefanovic issued an apology on Twitter today after repeatedly using a transphobic slur to set up a series of offensive “jokes” at the transgender community’s expense.
Stefanovic started casually using the word “tranny” during a live shot with reporter Chrstine Ahern, who described how she and her camera crew were mugged by “a group of transvestites” shortly after arriving in Rio de Janeiro to cover the upcoming Olympics.
“We had to shoot a piece to camera on the beach and things just turned really quickly,” Ahern reported.
“We came across a group of transvestites, one very strong — the only reason it is important is because they were very strong. One came straight for us and tried to get my cameraman’s camera but he was so scared about telling the boss that he had lost the camera within an hour of landing in Rio, so he held on to it.”
— The Today Show (@TheTodayShow) July 27, 2016
“At first I was afraid I was petrified, I kept thinking I could never live without you by my side,” Stefanovic joked, as Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” played in the background. You can see the beginning of the exchange in the tweet above, which The Today Show edited before posting.
Where the clip above ends, Stefanovic began insinuating the cameraman, Karl, was “no stranger to trannies.”
“He has fought off tougher trannies. They don’t call him the bull for nothing. Let’s be serious, because one of them was armed with a brick in their handbag and that was used as a weapon against your security guard or a police officer, is that right?The other thing is Chris, I know that you have gone to see the police about this tranny. We have a confit made up and we know they don’t all look the same.”
The shot cuts to a mock-up “wanted” poster with a picture of a drag queen from the movie Priscilla, Queen of The Desert as Stefanovic persists: “Is that the tranny they are talking about?”
Following an influx of complaints on Thursday, Stefanovic took to Twitter to apologize for the comments while claiming “complete ignorance.”
“I’m happy to have a beer or cocktail with anyone I offended,” he wrote.
I'm very sorry Chloe. I'm happy to have a beer or cocktail with anyone I offended. It was complete ignorance. https://t.co/aPCsv0JLZi— Karl Stefanovic (@karlstefanovic) July 28, 2016
It’s unclear whether Ahern’s attackers were transgender women, drag queens, neither, or both, but the offensive connotation of the word “tranny” is crystal clear.
According to GLAAD, which lists the word on its most recent Media Reference Guide, it’s considered “profoundly offensive” by some and “should not be used in mainstream media.”
You can watch an extended version of the un-edited clip at news.com.au.
Aces looks sexier than ever in his mechanic’s coveralls, but I couldn’t wait to see what he was packing under them and boy oh boy it was a surprise. He pulls his classic Ford in through the roll up doors with full intentions of giving her a good polishing. Then the horny stud pops a boner and decides that the car can wait and starts polishing his own knob. Aces makes himself comfortable in the bed of the truck and whips out his huge schlong. With his uncut cock hard and in hand, Aces slips his coveralls down and he works his tool to it’s full nine inches and perches on the roof of the truck. Aces lies down on his six pack and humps his clasped hands, hips undulating with every thrust. Aces then springs to his knees and rockets a big straight load right up into the air. It arcs back and lands all over his sleek tattooed hands and taught stomach." -- If U Seek Andy
"The Democratic party is in good hands."From: NewNowNext
President Obama ignited the crowd on the third night of the Democratic National Convention when he took to the podium to tell the American people why he thinks Hillary Clinton should be the next President of the United States.
It was an anniversary for Obama—12 years to the day since he first exploded onto the national scene with his legendary speech at the 2004 DNC in Boston, now he was making his final DNC speech while in office.
Obama passionately spoke about why he believed Clinton should be our next Commander in Chief:
“Hillary Clinton is that woman in the arena. She’s been there for us – even if we haven’t always noticed. And if you’re serious about our democracy, you can’t afford to stay home just because she might not align with you on every issue. You’ve got to get in the arena with her, because democracy isn’t a spectator sport. America isn’t about ’yes he will.’ It’s about ’yes we can.’ And we’re going to carry Hillary to victory this fall, because that’s what the moment demands.”
He also received a few laughs, one of them being when he pointed out how there has never been a more qualified person for the job of president, not him or even Bill Clinton himself:
“There has never been a man or a woman, not me, not Bill, nobody more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America. I hope you don’t mind, Bill, but I was just telling the truth, man.”
Obama also served some insults at Republican nominee Donald Trump, calling him a “homegrown demagogue” and pointing out how his negative version of America will ultimately cost him the election:
“That is another bet that Donald Trump will lose. Because he’s selling the American people short. We are not a fragile or frightful people. Our power doesn’t come from some self-declared savior promising that he alone can restore order. We don’t look to be ruled. Our power comes from those immortal declarations first put to paper right here in Philadelphia all those years ago: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that together, We, the People, can form a more perfect union.’”
After Obama finished Clinton made a surprise appearance onstage. The two embraced as the crowd went wild.
“You know, nothing truly prepares you for the demands of the Oval Office,” Obama remarked during his speech. “Until you’ve sat at that desk, you don’t know what it’s like to manage a global crisis or send young people to war. But Hillary’s been in the room; she’s been part of those decisions. And no matter how daunting the odds; no matter how much people try to knock her down, she never, ever quits.”
