Goldie Hawn, in a joint interview with Amy Schumer conducted for PrideSource, remembers the AIDS years in Hollywood, saying:

When we went through the AIDS period, it was a very scary time, and I would go visit guys and I'd get in bed with them just to be there with them.

She also spells out her approach to LGBT — and human — rights:

Being an ally for LGBT people and an ally for all people, transgender or whatever - to me, that's a human story. I feel there are injustices in the world that I'll stand up for, and I think that it's important to realize that the world is filled with these kinds of issues. We're dealing with intolerance and what's going on with deportation and what's happening with Mexicans and what's happening with people who are Muslim. There are so many things, and if you can't stand up for it, then you're not standing up for humankind. Because that's who we are. We all have skin and blood, and we're all made of the same things. I have a note that I will probably needlepoint one day: "Love knows no gender." And it doesn't. Love is something in the heart and in the mind, so why would you chastise anyone for that? And this is something that I feel very strongly about.

Check out the rest of Chris Azzopardi's piece, in which Schumer talks about her own gay fanbase and claims:

I'm gay for so many people that I think I may be just gay.

Goldie & Amy's Snatched is in theaters May 12. It marks Hawn's first film since 2002's The Banger Sisters.

Fun Facts: Goldie battled the late Jonathan Demme on their film Swing Shift (1984) — he wanted it edgy, she wanted laughs. Also, Goldie and Madonna were all set to star in the film adaptation of Chicago (2002), but Goldie was allegedly fired for being too old and Madonna dumped by then-director Nicholas Hytner before eventual director Rob Marshall came on board.

Madonna Reacts Negatively To Biopic News Comments (0)

Madonna isn't having this Blond Ambition biopic about her early years, which just got picked up at Universal.

In an Instagram post decorated with an image of herself taken by Maripol, Madonna referred to the film's makers (perhaps including producer Brett Ratner) as charlatans and fools.

I realize the script is admired — it was on the Black List of great scripts that hadn't been signed up anywhere — but the story has been told, poorly, several times. For my money, I'll be more interested in Emmy and the Breakfast Club, which tells the less-publicized story of Madonna's even earlier years.

My Queen bigger than life yesterday on Empire State Bulding

A post shared by lassence (@mitchbru1) on

Ya gotta love when the world's most iconic phallus symbol is covered with the Queen of Pop — images, including several amazing Madonna shots, were projected onto the Empire State Building Wednesday night in honor of Harper's Bazaar's 150th anniversary.

Most magazines can't make it to 150 issues.

He's Not Your B*tch, Please Hang His Sh*t! Comments (0)

Daniel_arzola_main_image(Images by Daniel Arzola)

Via Gay Star News: I love the work of Venezuelan artist Daniel Arzola, who left his home country in fear of his life.

His creations are simple, joyous and rainbow-bright. They also contain written messages, Daniel_arzola_2which is a passion of mine in art — I'm a Barbara Kruger whore, and used to include written words in my own work back when I was an artist.

He chalks up some of his success to none other than Madonna, who noticed an image from his I'm Not a Joke series and Instagrammed it. As reported by Gay Star News:

To his shock, in October 2013, Madonna saw one of the images and tweeted about it, saying ‘this art is no joke i love this @Arzola_d.’

That one Tweet changed Arzola’s life. In the course of just a few days, he received media inquiries from all over the world and dozens of requests for interviews.

However, that spotlight bought him to the attention of Venezuelan authorities. He says he began to receive threats. Mindful of his previous experiences, Arzola decided he had to leave.

‘I always say Madonna changed my life. When she shared my work on Twitter, people started asking for interviews with me. One of them was RNW (Radio Netherlands Worldwide) in Amsterdam – and they helped me get out of Venezuela and go to the Netherlands.’

I love his work. His work is love.
