First things first: If you’re Canadian, it’s election day, and you have to remember to vote. As good as you’ve got it up in the north with your universal healthcare and marriage equality, things can always go wrong if you don’t stay on top of them. And here’s a cheat sheet to most of your out candidates.
Osama Bin Laden has been killed in Pakistan, and the United States is in possession of the body. It was a human strike team, not a drone attack, and was carried out under direct presidential authorization. I lived in D.C. on 9/11, had recently left the military, and worked for a company with offices in the World Trade Center. I lost a lot of friends that day. I'll never forget seeing the military roll down the street in Georgetown. It's a form of closure.

Eat your heart out, Pacey.
Last night Logo (AfterElton.com's parent company) celebrated its big, fun, fancy, silly NewNowNext Awards at The Avalon in Hollywood (watch this Monday on Logo at 10pm Et), and in addition to serving up some sassy awards to some pretty fabulous folks, the event was a great big party. James Van Der Beek hosted (and yes, there were some great self-referential Dawson’s Creek jokey moments and a quip about “Are these the 2001 NewNowNext Awards?”) and he was pretty freakin’ great at it. Sorry, Franco… There’s a new (now/next) go-to awards show host in town, and he brings a wide range of emotions to the table.
The show featured blistering kickass musical performances by Robyn (she debuted a new song “Call Your Girlfriend!”), Wynter Gordon, Oh Land and Panic! at the Disco, and some hot onstage moments by the stunning Joe Manganiello from True Blood, »

Last night's premiere for RuPaul's Drag Race Season 3 was held at Rage in West Hollywood and brought out a lot of star power. Among the familiar faces were Adam Lambert, Vanessa Williams and The A-List: New York's Mike Ruiz (who was overheard on the red carpet describing himself as "the Queen of Logo!")
Luckily for us here at AfterElton.com, we had some friends on hand for the event (thanks Lisamarie, thanks Clint!) and they got some killer shots from the red carpet. Enjoy!
