Australia voted. And the majority said YES to gay marriage. The majority was 62%. Who are the minority? Is the minority Mel Gibson? Whoever the minority is, they’re going to try to stop the change to Australia’s Marriage Act but the Prime Minister is moving ahead and it should be a happy Christmas for Australia’s LGBTQ+ community. Full Story

Unlike Lainey, I had no inkling that Blake Shelton would be named Sexiest Man Alive. When I first heard the news over the weekend on social media, my reaction was, “Huh? OK, I guess.”  I’m not fighting Blake, because I don’t think PEOPLE is using this platform to anoint a superstar. Full Story
