Maya Rudolph’s ‘Melania Trump Eating Diamonds’ More Relevant Than Ever

by matt baume July 19, 2016

For many of us, last night was the first time we heard from Melania Trump, the woman Donald plucked from a wriggling basket to marry after growing bored of his previous conquests.

Who is this lady? Well as is so often the case, the truth is not as much fun as the myths perpetuated by former Saturday Night Live stars. (Remember “I can see Russia from my house”?) While Melania may be your garden-variety model who married a rich guy, Maya Rudolph has invented a new career for her: selling diamonds that you eat.

“I love diamond. But we all ask ourself. Why can I not eat it?” she asks in a weird skit from a few months ago. She then stuffs a handful of jewels into her mouth, chewing and purring “Yummy. Made to enjoy. Have a good time today.”

Acknowledging the role that she seems to have adopted for most of the campaign so far, Melania adds, “Gives me the energy I need to sit and wait, or stand and wait.”

After a while, Maya as Melania wanders over to Kate McKinnon, playing Heidi Cruz. They have a fun exchange, during which Maya seems like she is legitimately about to choke on whatever prop she just put in her mouth, and then Heidi makes fun of her accent. That detail saves the skit from descending into something unpleasant and unfunny — making fun of non-native English speakers for their accents — by turning the joke around and mocking Heidi for being THAT white lady.

All in all, a fun time had by all. After Melania’s weird performance last night, cribbing from Michelle Obama’s speech, it may be a while before we see her speaking on stage again. So enjoy the imposters instead.

Watch A Rainbow Flag Drift Through Outer Space And Spread Homosexuality Across The Universe

by Graham Gremore September 28, 2016

Prepare to be absolutely mesmerized. Because space is gay, ya’ll. The good folks over at Planting Peace, the same group who created the rainbow-colored Equality House directly across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church, attached a rainbow flag to a high-altitude balloon and sent it way, way up into the atmosphere.

Jonathan Groff Is Virtually Indistinguishable From His Character On HBO’s “Looking”

by Dan Tracer September 28, 2016

  This job has changed my life in so many ways. I’ve never played a character that hit so close to the bone. It felt like an extension of myself taking place in the present. Trying to figure out what it means to be gay. Patrick and I are from the same generation of gay [...]

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Winner Tyra Sanchez Releases Hot New Track, Serious Iggy Azalea Vibes

by Tim Winfred September 28, 2016

Yeah, we know most people aren’t the biggest fan of RuPaul‘s Drag Race season 2 winner Tyra Sanchez – she was controversial during her time on the show, and her post-show career hasn’t been a smooth ride either. Nevertheless, her new track Vogue is seriously hot, and worth a listen. The song’s beat is reminiscent of [...]
