Pete Wentz’s Gay Bitch Talks Business

The August issue of OUT Magazine didn’t just interview Pete Wentz, but also his gay business partner, Stephen Westman, who runs Wentz Inc. When asked what exactly does he do for Wentz, he replies “I’m his bitch.” Sounds sexy doesn’t it?

Here’s what he has to say about his business relationship with Wentz; “Westman talks to Wentz, who according to both men is more of a collaborator than a boss, maybe a half dozen times a day — staccato voice mails, one-line e-mails, and distracted conversations where they finish each other’s sentences. “In this world, I am very fortunate to be ‘the gay guy,’ ” Westman says. “I bring such a different perspective creatively. I can be articulate yet animated, professional yet funny. I don’t think straight guys get to do that. I can say ‘Bro, I’m a homo’ and go right into it. There are advantages.”

Playboy To Enter Gay Market

According to the XBIZ News Report(contains ads NSFW): “Playboy plans to initially offer Time Warner Cable subscribers 20 hours of gay male programming. The service is slated to begin operating next month. Although the Playboy brand has been linked with heterosexual men’s entertainment since its magazine’s first issue in 1953, the company now describes itself more generally as “valuing sexiness and style” and is seeking more ways to diversify and boost its revenue.”

Photographers Bitter Over Polaroid’s Demise

Several weeks ago, the Polaroid Corporation announced it will quit the instant-film business in 2009 (not surprising given the rising of digital photography.)  However, photographers and artists are not happy about this at all.

New York Magazine reports; “Now what the hell am I supposed to do?” asks John Waters, who’s shot a Polaroid of each person who’s come into his apartment since 1992—friends, interviewers, delivery men, everyone. “Digital isn’t instant gratification, and those cameras don’t make that sexy sound.”

I sense a Save Polaroid campaign coming. Save polaroids, save the world?

The Boy Genius is showing images of the upcoming BlackBerry Kickstart. It comes in a clamshell, has a Pearl-esque keyboard, and apparently utilizes both an internal and LCD screen. Read the full article.

Depends on how you look at it. To me is either a BlackBerry that looks like a phone or a phone with BlackBerry functions. Anyhow my Nokia 5310 XpressMusic looks better, you agree?
