Sir Elton John and Courtney Love are among the celebrities who are mad at comments made by designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. In an interview with Italian news magazine Panorama, the duo, who broke up after a long relationship in 2005, strongly spoke out against same-sex parents!
“We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed,” they are quoted as stating. Dolce went on to add that children born via egg donors or artificial insemination are “children of chemistry, synthetic children”, adding: “Uteri [for] rent, semen chosen from a catlogue”. Gabbana concluded: “The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.”
Few months ago, jeweler Tiffany & Co. featured a gay couple in their printed and digital ads. This time they are back with a video that celebrates diversity in love with a moving new ad. Entitled “Will You?”
The video is full of the best kinds of questions such as, “Will you let me be the guy who gets to make fun of you because you take three minutes to butter your toast in the morning?” and ends with a simple, four-word inquiry: “Will you marry me?”
The commercial features a variety of couples, including an interracial couple and a same-sex couple, on the road to engagement. Tiffany & Co. previously featured the same gay couple in an ad released in January.
“Nowadays, the road to marriage is no longer linear,” Tiffany spokesperson Linda Buckley said to CNN. “True love can happen more than once with love stories coming in a variety of forms.”
Once again, Tiffany & Co., I congratulate you. Your commercial is very moving. The music and beautiful images are amazing!
What do you guys think? Wanna marry me now? Lol
World renown fashion designer Rick Owens sent models “bare cock” on the runway for his fall 2015 collection. The bisexual designer who is known for his eccentric work, went further than usual for his latest collection. Models were wearing garments with porthole over their groin with no underwear on. Some were even scooped high enough in the front that the audience was gifted with that surprising full-frontal eyeful.
The designer said “Boys with their dicks out is such a simple, primal, childish gesture. Let’s not forget a bit of cheerful depravity.”
Will you embrace this trend for next fall? You might freeze in the snow though….think about it!

Jeweler Tiffany & Co. is featuring a same-sex couple in their latest ad campaign. “The ads are meant to broaden the 178-year-old jeweler’s portrayals of marriage”, Tiffany & Co. said.
Tiffany & Co. is the latest major fashion company to depict gay men in their ads. In recent years, several other major fashion companies have also featured same-sex couples, including Gap, Banana Republic, J. Crew, Dolce & Gabbana and many more.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it is a great progress? Or do you think some of these companies are only trying to get “pink money” by showing gay men in their ads?
Let me know!
