Noah Galvin SLAMS Colton Haynes: He Didn’t Really Come Out!

In The Real O’Neals, Noah Galvin plays a gay teenager who has just come out to his family.

Now, the actor, who is also out in real life, talks to Vulture about coming out, and he has a few choice words to share about Colton Haynes.

Haynes came out last month, which seemed pretty clear although he never actually spoke the words, “I’m gay.”

And Galvin thought it was pretty lame.

During the interview, the journalist asks if Galvin was familiar with Haynes, to which he replies, “The worst.”

He went on to reiterate:

“That’s not coming out. That’s f**king p**sy bullsh*t,” Galvin said of his fellow actor.

“That’s like, enough people assume that I sleep with men, so I’m just going to slightly confirm the fact that I’ve sucked a d*ck or two,” he added.

“That’s not doing anything for the little gays but giving them more masturbation material.”

HARSH.

Galvin also addresses how he wants to approach his character “Kenny” on The Real O’Neals, and says he doesn’t want him to “just be the Eric Stonestreet,” referring to the actor who plays an effeminate gay character on Modern Family.

“No, I think as wonderful of an actor as Eric Stonestreet is — I’ve never met him, I assume he’s a wonderful guy — he’s playing a caricature of a caricature of a stereotype of stereotype on Modern Family,” said Galvin.

“And he’s a straight man in real life,” he noted. “And as hilarious as that character is, there’s a lack of authenticity.”

“I want Kenny to be more than the funny gay kid,” he explained.

Pedro Pablo Kuczynski Wins Majority of Votes in Peru Election

(LIMA, Peru) — Former World Bank economist Pedro Pablo Kuczynski won the majority of votes in Peru’s closest presidential contest in five decades, election officials announced Thursday, even as his rival Keiko Fujimori has yet to concede defeat.

Four days after voting, electoral officials said that all ballots had been processed and Kuczynski had won 50.1 percent compared to 49.9 percent for the daughter of imprisoned ex-President Alberto Fujimori.

Supporters immediately celebrated outside Kuczynski’s campaign headquarters while the apparent president-elect made a plea to his opponent and other rival political forces for dialogue.

“We receive this virtual verdict with great humility because Peru has huge challenges ahead of it,” Kuczynski told reporters in his first remarks after the tally was known. “We shouldn’t confuse dialogue with weakness. We’re going to be decisive but we’re going to work on behalf of all Peru because many Peruvians feel the train has left them behind and we want everyone to get on board.”

Even as messages of congratulations poured in from presidents around Latin America, Fujimori’s campaign seemed in no rush to recognize defeat. After electoral authorities presented their results Thursday, she left her campaign headquarters, where she was holed up in meetings all day, and returned to her home without making any remarks to the throngs of journalists waiting outside.

Aides say she is waiting for the National Electoral Board, the nation’s top electoral authority and which sits above the election officials who made Thursday’s announcement, to proclaim a winner before conceding.

Fujimori’s last hope is some 173 handwritten tallies — representing as many as 50,000 votes — that were sent to the board for review. Among the irregularities detected by Fujimori’s campaign were counting more ballots than actual voters at certain polling stations, and allegations that volunteers from Kuczynski’s campaign worked at multiple polling stations in violation of electoral law.

Still, experts say it’s almost impossible for Fujimori to make up the roughly 40,000 vote difference to overtake Kuczynski.

Fujimori was the favorite to win the runoff but lost ground in the final stretch as fellow conservative Kuczynski warned voters that the corruption and criminality associated with her father’s authoritarian rule could return.

Alberto Fujimori is serving a 25-year jail sentence for corruption, organized crime and sanctioning death squads. While he is loathed by many in Peru, he is revered by others for taming Maoist Shining Path guerrillas and hyperinflation, and Sunday’s election was seen partly as a referendum on his iron-fisted rule in the 1990s.

Dozens of supporters of Fujimori have held demonstrations outside the electoral board to denounce what they said were fraud. But Fujimori’s aides have refused to talk in such stark terms and say that the interests of Peruoverride whatever political differences exist between the two campaigns.

While the campaign ended bitterly, with Kuczynski abandoning his preferred technocrat’s discourse and accusing Fujimori of being the harbinger of a “narco state,” most observers expect him to try and work with his former rival.

That’s part a reflection of shared ideology — both candidates embrace a pro-business agenda and Kuczynski supported Fujimori in the 2011 presidential runoff — and the political reality facing Kuczynski, whose fledgling movement has 18 of 130 seats in congress compared with a solid majority of 73 seats for Fujimori’s Popular Force party.

Kucyznski would be Peru’s oldest president, at age 77. The son of a Jewish-Polish immigrant father, Kuczynski’s first stint in government in the 1960s was cut short by a military coup. He ended up moving to the U.S. where he worked at the World Bank and then embarked on a successful career in business. He also served as finance minister twice and Peru’s prime minister under President Alejandro Toledo.

Beyonce: SUED for Stealing Lemonade Trailer!

Earlier this year, Beyonce released the “video album” for “Lemonade,” and fans went berserk.

The singer was praised for the HBO special as a visual achievement, even though much of the focus centered on her revelations that husband Jay Z cheated on her.

Unfortunately, Queen Bey has now been accused of copying the trailer for “Lemonade,” according to E! News.

Kentucky filmmaker alleges that Beyonce stole “substantial parts” of his original short film PALINOIA.

Fulks recently filed court documents in a New York civil suit, naming Beyonce as the defendant.

The documents read:

“The number of aesthetic decisions included in Plaintiff’s PALINOIA Work that are parroted in Defendants’ LEMONADE Trailer demonstrates that the LEMONADE Trailer is substantially similar to the PALINOIA Work.

“The misappropriated content includes both the particular elements that the Plaintiff chose to comprise the PALINOIA Work and the coordination and arrangement of those particular elements.”

Among the similarities include the use of graffiti styles, parking garage shots, the use of black and red in many scenes and similar title cards.

In addition, Fulks cites a similar use of poetry voice over and a “heavy, dark, and angst-laden” mood that’s present in both works.

Fulks requests a trial by jury and that Beyonce’s team provide an account of “any and all profits derived from and attributable to their exploitation of PALINOIA including profits from the sales of the LEMONADE Album in all media, from all sources, worldwide.”

Fulks attests that some e-mails containing links to his work made their way from his manager to Bryan Younce, a Columbia executive who worked with Beyonce in the past.

Beyonce has not yet responded to the accusations.
