olivia wilde healthcare africa haiti charity activism inspiration

Olivia Wilde is doing some major good!!

Most folks would just stop at doing the minimum of help for those less fortunate around the world, but not Olivia!

Even though she's already a board member for the Artists for Peace and Justice organization, which provides education and health services in Haiti, she wants to work closely with Jeffrey Sachs, the director of research group The Earth Institute, to improve healthcare in Africa!

Here's what she says:

James Franco Outs Homophobia In Advertising!

James Franco dropped a MAJOR reality bomb at the premiere of Spring Breakers at SXSW last night.

…if you wanted some reminding, homophobia is still a HUGE issue today.

The actor has been a part of plenty controversial movies, but it was the gay-themed films — Leather Bar and Kink — that premiered at Sundance which caused him to lose THREE major advertising endorsements!

Being the classy man that he is, James didn't name the three companies, but it looks like it was ALL their loss for giving him the boot because his flick, Oz The Great and Powerful, opened at #1 this weekend!!

Ch-ch-check out the interview and fall even MORE in love with the talented activist (above)!!!

As if we needed anymore reason to love him!

Taylor Swift's Ex Conor Kennedy ARRESTED Outside White House! See The Proof HERE…

conor kennedy arrested white house protest pipeline sierra club taylor swift

Holy geez, we can't wait to hear Swift sing about this one!

Conor Kennedy was arrested this afternoon at the White House!!

Po-Po slapped cuffs on his pretty little wrists and hauled his famous behind off to the slammer!

Conor, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Darryl Hannah, and 44 other activists were arrested for civil disobedience while protesting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline as, apparently, their Sierra Club-esque group feels it will contribute to the current economic crisis!

The dude who once made headlines for crashing weddings with (then lover) Taylor Swift paid a sizable fine before the DC cops released him!

In a statement, one activist said:

“We really shouldn’t have to be put in handcuffs to stop KXL–our nation’s leading climate scientists have told us it’s dangerous folly, and all the recent Nobel Peace laureates have urged us to set a different kind of example for the world, so the choice should be obvious."

We aren't sure how Conor came to be involved, but we bet his great-uncle John F. Kennedy — a legendary American who once lived in the residence where the protest was staged — would be proud as peach pie to see a descendant risk his reputation for a cause he deemed worthy.

And combating pollutions is so important, too!

Aww! We're almost sad Conor and T-Swizzle are never ever getting back together!

What a beautiful pair of difference-makers they could've become!

Eva Longoria Is Inaugurally Stunning!

WOW! FLAWLESS!

Eva Longoria looked unbelievably striking when she brought some much-needed Hollywood glam to President Barack Obama's inauguration as the president's inaugural co-chair in Washington D.C.

There is almost too MUCH sophistication in her coral leather trench look with black gloves and scarf for us to handle.

Do we sense a little Jackie O inspiration?!

The side-swept, hair flipped actress took to the presidential podium to voice her political concerns about immigration reform and called for Republicans and Democrats to compromise, despite her active loyalty to Obama in past elections.

The Latina actress tweeted:

Homophobic Pastor Crashes Slain Ugandan LGBT Activist's Funeral!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayR.I.P.Sad Sad

fight-breaks-out-at-david-katos-funeral

As if this whole pointless tragedy needed to get any uglier.

During the funeral today for murdered Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato, a local pastor apparently crashed the ceremony, took the microphone, and used it to criticize homosexuality.

He reportedly said:

"The world has gone crazy. People are turning away from the scriptures. They should turn back, they should abandon what they are doing. You cannot start admiring a fellow man. It is ungodly.”

Luckily, gay activists lashed back, and forcibly took back the microphone, so one woman could respond:

"Who are you to judge others? We have not come to fight. You are not the judge of us. As long as he's gone to God his creator, who are we to judge Kato?"

Just awful.

Ultimately, villagers refused to bury Kato's body, and his friends were forced to do it himself.

So unfair that such a heroic and brave man, who brutally lost his life refusing to give up on what he believed in, would still have to endure this kind of bigotry and hatred after his passing.

Your sacrifice will not be forgotten, bb. Please, may you have the opportunity to finally R.I.P.

Amazing!
