Shirtless Lenny Kravitz, Hunger, Games: VIDEO


Lenny Kravitz is looking fit in the new issue of Interview magazine, where he talks about how he got involved with the upcoming film adaptation of The Hunger Games:

Gary [Ross] saw Precious and said that he liked the character of Nurse John, so he thought I’d be right for the role in Hunger Games since Cinna is somebody who is looking out for somebody and is a support figure, too. So he called me down here in the Bahamas— I was actually making the album at the time. He said, “Hi, I’m making this movie called The Hunger Games. I think you’d be great. If you want it, you’ve got the part.”

More at Interview.

Meanwhile, a scene featuring Kravitz was released this week in which Cinna helps Katniss prepare for the tribute parade.

Students Rally Against Anti-Gay Hate in Connecticut: VIDEO


Approximately 50 students at Western Connecticut State University staged a rally in response to several incidents of anti-gay hate on campus, including one in which a note reading "Die Dyke" was written on a dry erase board on a student's door.

Patch reports:

University President James Schmotter said Wednesday, "Enough is enough."

"The cowardly writing of such anonymous messages may be easy, but it causes real pain and discomfort for those targeted.  Such hate speech has no place at
this university and will not be tolerated," Schmotter said in a campus-wide e-mail."If, as in those previous incidents, perpetrators are identified, they will be prosecuted in accordance with campus and state and federal legal codes."

Federal law comes into play because almost every single use of the internet involves crossing state lines. The incidents are investigated as "intimidation based on bigotry or bias." ...

...In a separate incident reported at Fairfield Hall, WCSU police are investigating threatening and harassing blogs posed on a Tumblr account belonging to two students. That was reported March 6 at 10:41 a.m.

The word "Fags," was written on a paper taped to the door of a student at Litchfield Hall on March 3.

Morrissey and His Band 'Hate William and Kate'


Morrissey and his bandmates staged a sartorial protest of Britain's continued ownership of the Falkland Islands at a concert in Argentina, according to the Hollywood Reporter:

"The [British] government, the governments, never listen to the people, to their pain," he told the audience, blaming the government, not the people, for the political difficulty.

Morrissey initially commented on the dispute, which has been enflamed by Prince William's Royal Air Force assignment to the islands, on Friday, when he told another audience in Argentina that “You know of course the Malvinas Islands, everybody knows they belong to Argentina so please do not blame the British people, we know the islands belong to you." The Malvinas Islands are the Spanish name for the Falklands.
