Watch Eddie Izzard Talk About Coming Out As Transgender As He Gives An INCREDIBLY Inspirational Speech!
Eddie Izzard has taken it upon himself to do something extremely difficult and inspirational — run 27 marathons in 27 days for the charity Sport Relief.
The comedian who once ran 43 marathons in 52 days for the charity, has decided to run one marathon for each year Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. Whoa.
On top of it all, Eddie is also using the exposure to help send a great message as he gave an inspirational speech about coming out as transgender. He shared:
"I use it as a badge of identity. I am a transgender guy who came out 31 years ago… I've got boy genetics and girl genetics. We get obsessed by it in humanity. We've been obsessed for 5000 years of civilization and people are still being murdered – in Uganda they were trying to sentence people to death."
The 54-year-old continued:
"No matter what sex or sexuality, how you self-identify, or who you fancy, matters not one whit – what do you do in life? What do you make? What do you add to the human existence? That's what matters."
The actor went on to sum up his connection to Mandela and explain his run and hopeful message by saying:
"It all comes back to Nelson Mandela. Try and put something into the world, leave something positive."
Ch-ch-check out the rest of Izzard's AH-Mazing speech (below) and let us know if you feel inspired!
Another week, another song!
Last Friday, Ariana Grande released the title track off her upcoming album Dangerous Woman. And while we were underwhelmed by the first single, she just dropped a SECOND song from the upcoming record.
Be Alright is a welcomed change from D.W., since the new number is much more upbeat!
The soulful singer croons about working through the rough patches in a relationship, and how everything ultimately ends up being okay.
The chorus consists of a fun beat that we're sure will be bumping in clubs by the end of the month!

The fan said
Watch Madonna Expose A Concertgoer's Breast Onstage & Joke About Sexual Harassment During Her Rebel Heart Tour!
Oh, Madonna. What are you doing?!
On Wednesday, the Queen of Pop took the stage in Brisbane as part of her two-night stop in the Australian city for her Rebel Heart Tour.
And while fans were PISSED that the icon was over two hours late starting the show — things didn't get going until 11:22 p.m. — she gave the remaining concertgoers, who didn't storm out of the Entertainment Center, an interesting show to say the least.
At one point during the concert, the blonde beauty invited a young woman from the audience to join her onstage.
The singer commented on the gorgeous gal's good looks, telling the crowd:
"She's the kind of girl you just want to slap. Or pull…"
But as she said that, she tugged on the concertgoer's shirt, pulling her top down and COMPLETELY exposing her breast!
We love Madge, but GIRL. She was obviously wearing a strapless shirt. If you yank on that, it's GOING to come down with you.
And then in an attempt to make up for it, the 57-year-old awkwardly joked about sexual harassment, and even offered to let the fan make her "hole big again."
For those of you whose minds are in the gutter, we're 99% sure she's talking about a hole in her costume… But just to be sure watch the entire uncomfortable encounter (below)!
ICYMI: Kentucky's Senate Passes A Bill That Allows Businesses To Discriminate Against The LGBT Community
We can't believe sh*t like this is still happening.
ICYMI, on Tuesday, the Kentucky Senate passed a religious liberties bill to legally protect businesses that deny service to members of the LGBT community because of religious reasons.
The Republican-controlled senate passed the measure — which would expand on the state's 2013 Religious Freedom Restoration Act — on a 22-16 vote.
The problem with the legislation is that, even though same-sex marriage has been legalized nationwide, it continues to promote anti-gay sentiments and allow discriminatory actions.
However, those supporting the bill say it protects citizens' rights to freedom of conscience.
Its lead sponsor, Senator Albert Robinson, defended the measure, saying:
