RuPaul is nothing if not honest. In an interview with Engaget, he touched on a subject the internet loves to hate. You can read the full text of the interview here, but this quote really jumped out at me;

“We live in a culture that’s so over-analyzed … self-analyzed, that we’re offended by everything. Everything in the world offends us. And we as a culture believe that if other people change their behavior, then my life will be so much better. When the truth is, why would you give that power to someone else outside of yourself? It’s up to you to do what you need to do to make yourself happy. But don’t depend on other people changing what they do or how they present themselves to you, or how they address you to dictate how happy you’re going to be. That’s ridiculous.”

What he said. Smart man.

Soccer superstar and hottie Cristiano Ronaldo is beloved by excitable soccer fans. So, when the nice people in his hometown of Funchal, Portugal on the island of Madeira, decided they wanted to build a statue of their favourite son, they got very excited too, I’m guessing. Or the sculptor was very excited about his commission. Or Christiano was semi-excited. By the looks of the finished statue, SOMEONE was excited, anyway…

Sir Elton John and David Furnish officially married Sunday on the ninth anniversary their civil partnership, under new laws implemented in England earlier this year that now allow same-sex marriages. They posted this picture preparing to sign official documents.

“That’s the legal bit done. Now on to the ceremony!”

They planned a big celebration at their estate near Windsor Castle. The nuptials were no surprise as Elton had Tweeted about the plans. Sir Elton also seems to have joined Instagram just to post pics of their big day. He posted the cosy shoe shot below with the caption;

“Our little ring bearers are fast asleep, and their shoes are polished and ready for tomorrow’s celebration. @DavidFurnish #ShareTheLove”

The ceremony was in their own chapel/ art gallery with the vows being said (below) before a Damien Hirst sculpture of dove (The Incomplete Truth, 2006) under a Gilbert & George painting (and I think that’s a Philip Taaffe on the far right.) The menu was traditional and very posh (including Posh herself, David and and their entire brood) with wild mushroom soup with truffle cream, beef short rib with caramelized onion pie and warm chocolate pudding with vanilla ice cream for dessert. In a post, Brooklyn Beckham, below with Mom, offered congratulations to “Uncle Elton and Uncle David.” It looks like an A-list/famiy affair, the way you might do it if you were knighted (and were worth half a billion!) Congrats! #sharethelove #sharethewealth

Tired of actually working for a living? (Sick of hearing Mariah’s All I Want For Christmas?) Maybe you just want to find a way to earn a little extra passive income this holiday season? Next time you have a few hours free, sit down and write a Christmas classic. Easy, right? Hey, just listen to the lyrics –how hard could it be? (I’m looking at you, Ariana Grande?) There’s a fortune out there up for grabs, kids. For inspiration, here are the top selling Holiday songs of last year and of all-time;

Top Earning Christmas Songs of 2013:

#1. SladeMerry Christmas Everybody (1973) $840,000

#2. The PoguesFairytale of New York (1987) $630,000

#3. Mariah CareyAll I Want for Christmas Is You (1994) $570,000

#4. Wham!Last Christmas (1984) $500,000

#5. Band AidDo They Know It’s Christmas (1984) $130,000

White Christmas Wham! Tony Bennett The Pogues Slade Santa Claus Is Coming to Town Paul McCartney Michael Buble Mariah Carey Irving Berlin Garth Brooks Do They Know Its Christmas? Bob Dylan Bing Crosby best selling christmas songs Band Aid All I Want For Christmas

Top Earning Christmas Songs of All-Time:

#4. Paul McCartneyWonderful Christmastime (1979). Est. earnings: $15 million
McCartney was careful to write, produce and perform all aspects of Wonderful Christmastime and today it earns him $400-600 thousand dollars in royalties EVERY YEAR.

#3. Mel TormeThe Christmas Song (1944). Est. earnings: $19 million
You probably know this song by its opening line “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire”. Ironically, Torme is Jewish and wrote the music at 19. It has since been covered by literally hundreds of artists including Michael Buble, Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, NSYNC and many more. Despite having written more than 250 songs during his career, The Christmas Song was by far Mel’s biggest financial success. He often called it “my annuity”.

#2. Haven Gillespie & Fred J CootsSanta Claus is Coming to Town (1934). Est. earnings: $25 million
The day after the song debuted, over 100,000 people ordered copies of the sheet music. 400,000 copies had sold within a few months. The song has been covered by a everybody including Justin Bieber, Bruce Springsteen and Mariah Carey.

#1. Irving BerlinWhite Christmas (1940). Est. earnings: $36 million
No song captures the heart of the holidays like “White Christmas”, ironic considering that it was written by a Jewish immigrant from Russia. Bing Crosby‘s version is by far the most famous but countless other artists have recorded the song. With over 100 million copies sold worldwide to date, The Guinness Book of World Records recently named “White Christmas” the bestselling single of all time. (via Celebrity Net Worth)

Is the art world the new black? If so, apparently MoMA’s Klaus Biesenbach is its celeb touchstone. The silver fox/ MoMA PS1 & Chief Curator at Large/ art star magnet had a little shindig in his tiny (but glam) NYC pad the other day. SO tiny that the tree had to go in the closet and the guests on the bed. But before guests James Franco, Courtney Love, Marina Abramović, an others arrived, Gaga sent flowers before she appeared (sans Tony Bennett) like a vision at his door. Viola! The next day Klaus and Gaga hit Cindy Sherman‘s Holiday party (bottom) and according to his caption;

“my plus1 was a huge hit at cindy’s holiday party”

It’s all just too fab for mere mortals but it’s fun to glimpse the glam, even if it’s just in pictures. Thanks, Instagram!

I’m usually not in the business of finding people houses in LA, but this 4500 square foot pad with 3 beds and 3 baths, just off the Sunset Strip seems perfect for Mr. “Flaunt It”, Nick Jonas, doesn’t it? In the West Hollywood Hills, it has a young, sexy vibe with beautiful details and a modern, metrosexual vibe –just like Nick. With three levels and sweeping views of LA, it has state-of-the-art security and sound system and seems to have been designed with this Jo bro in mind, no? At $4,140,000, I think he can afford it. All that’s missing is some gym equipment in that glass door garage and a few more floor-length mirrors, and he can move right in. For more pics, Nick, go here. You’re welcome.
