    Bollywood director, producer and friend to the stars, Karan Johar, has a new autobiography coming out called An Unsuitable Boy (the title is a play on the title of the famous novel, A Suitable Boy- which is about marriage etc- by Vikram Seth, who is also gay). Karan has been living in the world's biggest glass closet for a while now- mostly everyone (celebs and the common public) knows he's gay, he has never said he is straight, he has often hinted at the difficulties in his childhood arising out of his effeminacy, and most of all, he allows asshole straight celebs on his show to constantly allude to his homosexuality through very tired jokes. Yet, he has not come out unlike a few other public figures in India. He has been playing this coy game now where he does not hide his sexuality but also refuses to come out. He had previously written about his issues and inhibitions regarding sex.

    In his most direct statement yet, he discusses his sexuality, the rumors about him and SRK and homophobia in India. Some quotes:

    About people who expect him to say those three words:  “Everybody knows what my sexual orientation is. I don’t need to scream it out. If I need to spell it out, I won’t only because I live in a country where I could possibly be jailed for saying this… The reason I don’t say it out aloud is simply that I don’t want to be dealing with the FIRs. I’m very sorry. I have a job, I have a commitment to my company, to my people who work for me; there are over a hundred people that I’m answerable to. I’m not going to sit in the courts because of ridiculous, completely bigoted individuals who have no education, no intelligence.”
    About homophobia in India, where Section 377 makes 'unnatural' sex illegal and punishable by law: “I have become like the poster boy of homosexuality in this country. But honestly, I have no problem with people saying what they want about me. Twitter has the most abuse. I wake up to at least 200 hate posts saying, ‘Get out, you’re polluting our nation, you’re dirtying society’ or ‘Shove [IPC Section] 377 up your arse.’ I get this on a daily basis and I’ve learned to laugh it off. One man came up to me once very cockily at Heathrow airport and said, ‘Is it true that you are a homo?’ He was with his wife and child, and he asked me this. I looked at him and said, ‘Why, are you interested?’ And he said, ‘Hey, what-what what!’ And I said, ‘Don’t what-what me.’ And I walked out.”
    He is angry about those people who speculate that he and SRK are in a relationship because he considers SRK as an elder brother and mentor and feels disgusted by the insinuation that he would want to sleep with someone who he considers his brother.
    The reactions to Karan's statements have been mixed- some public figures have voiced their support while others are ambivalent about the message Karan's stance will give to many gay people in India. Screenwriter Apurva Asrani (Aligarh) makes some very valid points about the problems in Karan's statement in this piece, especially about how his elite position in society will protect him from being dragged to court/arrested for being gay. Many others have stressed the importance that the coming out of such a famous celebrity will have on India's LGBTQ community. But it often feels hard to call out Karan on his hypocrisy when this is the shit that is thrown at him by trash users on twitter.
    The guy went on a rant with other gems like, "Yes, I can understand. A gay can only feel comfortable with gay. That's why SRK compliments him."

    377 is a complicated piece of legislation- Asrani is right: you cannot be arrested for saying you are gay but unfortunately it is not so simple. I think he fears he could be blackmailed or humiliated by others. So even if it may not result in imprisonment, the law casts a long shadow and causes emotional pressure, maybe even to someone as privileged as Karan. I hope he comes out in his own pace...this really sucks.

    At the end of last season's Better Call Saul finale, Mike set out to assassinate Hector Salamanca, but his car alarm goes off prompting him to abandon his mission. Returning to his car, he sees a note left on the windshield with the word "DON'T" scrawled on it. Fans speculated that this was a sign from the popular character, Gustavo "Gus" Fring, from Breaking Bad hinting to his upcoming debut on Better Call Saul. Could this promo be confirming that?

    I'm ready for this. I'm also curious about that bts(?) photo posted last season of Hank (Dean Norris) and Gomie (Steven Michael Quezada) posing next to Bob's chair. Could we be seeing more classic characters in S3? Better Call Saul Season 3 is set to return Spring 2017.

    we have entered a new era, a time when personal knowledge and a capacity to feel is everywhere. a generation cast in indigo - a community in tune with their spirit, their creativity and the power to move forward. once realized, they are an inspiration to all that enter their universe. this takes endurance. this takes determination. this takes overcoming the voices that try to convince them that their differences stand in the way of their dreams.

    it's time we help each other uncover the potential we all have within - to put who we are into motion. we have the opportunity to focus the worlds attention back onto the things that really matter. talent, skill, practice and unique ability. to marry an athletic and spiritual ethos.

    In a new interview for Harper's Baazar February 2017 edition Madonna talks about the pain she felt waking up after Donald Trump was elected and calls out popular artists who do not express their political views because they're scared to lose their popularity.

    Harper's Baazar: It’s been almost two weeks since the election. How did you feel in the wake of Donald Trump being elected president of the United States? Were you surprised?

    Madonna: On election night I was sitting at a table with my agent, who is also one of my very best friends, and we were truly praying. We were praying. She was on her computer. She’s friends with someone who was working on Hillary [Clinton]‘s campaign and was getting blow-by-blow reports, and at one point she was like, “It’s not looking good.” It was just like watching a horror show. And then she was reading from the Quran, and I was reading from the Zohar. We were doing everything: lighting candles, meditating, praying, offering our lives to God forever, if only. I went to sleep, and since that night, I wake up every morning and it’s like when you break up with somebody who has really broken your heart. You wake up and for a second you’re just you, and then you go, “Oh, the person I love more than anything has just broken my heart, and I’m devastated and I’m broken and I have nothing. I’m lost.” That’s how I feel every morning. I wake up and I go, “Wait a second. Donald Trump is the president. It’s not a bad dream. It really happened.” It’s like being dumped by a lover and also being stuck in a nightmare.

    Harper's Baazar: What do we do now?

    Madonna: I feel like I’m already doing it to a certain degree anyway and have been doing it. But I have to get way more vocal and become a little bit less mysterious. What I find really astonishing is how quiet everybody is in my industry. I mean, nobody in the entertainment business except for maybe a handful of people ever speak out about what’s going on. Nobody takes a political stance or expresses an opinion.

    Harper Baazar: Why do you think that is?

    Madonna: They want to maintain a neutral position so they can maintain their popularity. I mean, if you have an opinion and people disagree with you, you might not get a job. You might be blacklisted. You might have fewer followers on Instagram. There are any number of things that would be detrimental to your career. Everyone’s really afraid. Because it doesn’t affect their daily life yet, no one’s doing anything about it.
