Nick Jonas hasn’t been afraid to flirt with the gay community as he launches his solo music career. As GaySocialites.com first reported, Jonas was spotted at several New York City gay bars showing off his now famous abs as he promoted his new single Jealous. No one seemed to be complaining then, but Nick recently fielded some questions about why he is so interested in the gay community now and how he ended up showing off his body while making these appearances.
It seems as though things got pretty heated between The View co-hosts, Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell, during a commercial break on Thursday that ended with Whoopi telling Rosie, I’m really sick of your shit!” Although the spat took place while the show was off the air, the studio audience got to witness it all.
It is not at all surprising that this movie is already being adapted into a stage musical. For one thing, Matilda‘s Matthew Warchus directed it (with great feeling and nimbleness, I might add). Also, it’s the latest in a line of British movies that highlight a transforming encounter between working-class heart and queer fabulousness: The Full Monty, Billy Elliot, Kinky Boots, etc. All of which have gone on to be highly successful as musicals. It doesn’t hurt that Pride, to my mind anyway, is the best of the lot.
MAN CRUSH MONDAY
Zac Efron has gone from High School Musical teen heart throb, and his fans include both gay men and gay women. In the past he hasn’t been afraid to address his gay rumors, and lately showing skin seems to be Efron’s forte. Match that with his beautiful blue eyes and brown hair, and he’s just flat out dreamy.
That’s why Zac Efron is this week’s Man Crush Monday at GaySocialites.com.

Sentimental but often acerbic, minimalist but very rooted in realism, Love Letters portrays two friends, the artistic Melissa Gardner and the eloquent Andrew Makepeace Ladd III, who exchange notes, cards and letters with each other for over 50 years. It’s designed to be performed by two actors reading the letters from their seats, which makes it incredibly simple to produce – no set, two actors who don’t even have to memorize their lines – and as such has been incredibly popular in regional theatres. Hire two stars, hold just a handful of rehearsals, and start selling tickets!
