Nick Jonas is cute as can be at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Tuesday morning in New York City. The twenty-two year old pop singer took to a float and performed 'Jealous' from his self-titled album, in stores now.

Michael J Willett is riding high as one of the stars of the MTV series 'Faking It' in which he plays a well-adjusted gay high school student named Shane Harvey. The series role came after Willett, 25, made a splash in the feature film 'G.B.F' - also playing a gay high school student. While the young actor was not advised against taking the gay roles, there was a time earlier in his career when he was advised not to be openly gay himself. "I got a lot of pressure to stay in the closet but I'm not a person who can have a secret or pretend to be someone else," he tells GayStarNews. "I didn't have another option. I refuse to ...
