GLAAD Takes Issue with Duck Dynasty Star’s GQ Remarks

PhilRobertsonThe PR blitz for A&E’s reality TV juggernaut continues. While things went swimmingly for this week’s Hollywood Reporter cover story, such is not the case with a GQ feature.

Per Ad Age‘s Jeanine Poggi, GLAAD is already on the case, asking A&E if it stands by Phil Robertson‘s comments in the January GQ article. Robertson damns homosexuals and other groups with a quote from Corinthians. He later makes some reprehensible remarks that bring to mind Toronto mayor Rob Ford‘s “plenty at home” statement:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Cover Battle: ESPN The Magazine or GQ

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This time around we have ESPN The Magazine taking on GQ. For its NBA Preview issue, ESPN featured LeBron James. As Knicks fans, anytime we see James we have to fight the urge to rant about him leaving us with the ultra-selfish Melo and Amar’e “No Knees” Stoudemire. You’ll just have to trust us that we’re not yelling at the top of our lungs right now.

Anthony Weiner Remains Unlikeable

It’s almost impossible to like Anthony Weiner. He’s pompous, egocentric and — though there is plenty of evidence that he’s not the brightest bulb in the pack  — he continues to act as if he’s a brilliant, gifted man. In a new GQ profile, Weiner remains extremely unlikeable. Here are some quotes:

On the theory that he’s his own worst enemy:

I’ve heard that. Thought about it quite a bit. No doubt the obstacles in my way were obstacles I created. But I don’t think so. I just didn’t think of it all as a capital offense. And I rationalized it. I thought, ‘This person’s my friend. Why would they turn on me?’ But it isn’t about harm I’ve done to the world — it’s about harm I’ve done to my wife. So rationalizing it is asinine.

Even when he admits to doing something wrong he finds a way to say it wasn’t really that wrong.

On failing to become mayor:

GQ Publishes Special ‘What to Wear Now’ Issue

Your FishbowlNY editors are dudes (not dude-itors) who sometimes have a tough time figuring out how to dress fly, which is why we rely on experts like those at GQ to help us out. Enter GQ’s special “What to Wear Now” issue.

The glossy features “Every coat, shoe, accessory, color, styling trick, and sweater (just to name a few) you’re going to want on your body this fall,” according to the official announcement.

This is a smart move by GQ. A lot of men are like us in that they want straightforward advice on what to rock, and GQ is providing that. Nothing complicated, just “Yo, wear this and try not to say anything stupid.” Now if someone could just publish a magazine titled Smart Things to Say to People, we’d be set.

What to Wear Now hits newsstands August 27.

British GQ Puts One Direction on Cover, One Direction Fans Get Very Mad

British GQ just unveiled their September issue, featuring the members of the very talented and not at all flash in the pan boy band, One Direction. The reaction from their fans, called “Directioners” (yes we’re serious), has been instense. And not in a good way.

The tweets have come fast and furious, with most upset about Harry Style’s cover, which calls him “Up all night to get lucky.” The Directioners didn’t like that at all, and so they unleashed their preteen angst upon GQ and GQ staffers. Here’s a roundup of some of the best reactions.

Threatening to break a nail file is serious business. Try finding a two pack of those for under $2.50. You can’t!
