If I Could Turn Back Time

Access Hollywood:

While discussing politics and the upcoming Presidential election, Cher, who came to the interview wearing a Barack the vote jacket, tells Bush, “I’ve been alive for 11 presidents and I feel this is the worst time I have ever seen. The country is so divided and it’s still going to be divided but I honestly think that there are some people that are healing people and there are some people like this President…He says he is the big decider, but I think he’s the big divider. I think he is a lot of other things I can’t say on television.”

If Sen. Obama were to get elected, Cher says he would have to bring both the Republicans and Democrats together. “If he puts Republicans in his cabinet, I think that is going to go a long way in healing; I was a Hillary supporter and I actually really love Joe Biden too, but I just believe Sen. Obama is the right candidate for the time.”

Love, Simon Outs Hollywood’s Youth Exploitation

Simon (Nick Robinson), the 17-year-old white gay high-school student in Love, Simon, appears to be a comic version of the protagonist in Moonlight. Rather than blatantly copy that Oscar-winning black-gay-victim film, Love, Simon remakes the pathetic Moonlight in the more marketable guise of a sitcom about a ... Read More
