Evan Rachel Wood Employs the Bisexuality PR Strategy

She didn’t invent it, that was Angelina Jolie. And she didn’t base a career on it, that was Tila Tequila. But Evan Rachel Wood has made good use of the bisexuality strategy to gain a bit of media attention. The following remarks in an interview with Esquire were all it took to land her a mention in damn near every publication in the country:

She says she’s feeling free and genuinely happy these days. “I’m up for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl…”

This is the third such hint in the conversation, after that androgyny comment and saying she’d “marry” her Mildred Pierce costar Kate Winslet if she could.

You date women?

“Yes,” she says proudly, as if she was waiting to be asked.

FBLA Exclusive: Cenk Uygur Signs as a Contributor at MSNBC

The host of The Young Turks – YouTube sensation Cenk Uygur told us that he is now a paid contributor at MSNBC. He will be on air regularly and fill-in host now as needed. Uygur has been subbing for Dylan Ratigan and Ed Schultz this year. This week he guest hosted the prime time spot for Keith Olbermann. This, of course is really exciting for YouTubers everywhere as one of their own has been given a real job. As we’ve said before, Cenk is the Tila Tequila of political talk shows. The Internet vet him and now he’s on the ol’ teevee.

Uygur tells FBLA, “It’s basically serving as a sixth man coming off the bench whenever any of the shows need me.” As if we understand sports metaphors.

Congrats Cenk!

No Right To Privacy For Tila Tequila, Sluts

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has rejected Tila Tequila‘s request for an injunction against the release of a sex tape, reports TMZ. Tila has said the tape was made 7 years ago with her then-boyfriend, who recently threatened to make it public if she didn’t fork over $75,000.

Tila’s lawyer, Alan Gutman, argued that the tape is “an invasion of privacy and a misappropriation of her image.” But the judge disagreed, because “Tila exploits her sexuality.” That’s right, slutty girls don’t have the same rights as the rest of us. Crikey, why don’t we just pin a scarlet letter to her chest?

Tila may be one of the most annoying people alive, but that’s hardly the point. Denying a woman her right to privacy based on her sexuality sets a dangerous legal precedent for all women.
