Jodie Foster, in or out? CNN helpfully clears things up for us ...
This just in: Jodie Foster is gay. A lesbian. Prefers the company of the fairer sex.
How do I know this? 'Cause CNN says it's so. Go to CNN.com and peruse the links on the home page. There is says, in bold blue text, "Jodie Foster publicly thanks gay partner."
Click on that link, and you'll get this helpful and informative video about why they can say Jodie Foster is so gay.
Now, it's true that Foster did, at an awards ceremony last week, publicly thank the woman considered by many to be her longtime companion (as they used to say in the '80s), Cyndey Bernard. And yes, many clues point to the fact that Foster and Bernard are more than just chums, most notably that Foster's two sons each have "Bernard" as a middle name. And maybe, just maybe, Foster's declaration of affection last week marks her subtle way of coming out. But is CNN going to far by stating that Foster thanked her "gay partner"?
And, most important of all, why the hell do we care? Indeed, why am I writing this blog post?
Yeah, why am I writing this blog post? Never mind, move along. Ooooh, Led Zeppelin concert clubs below!
