The Gay Agenda
By Joseph Hassan
Wednesday, December 31:: By now you've probably already figured out where you'll be ringing in the New Year. If it's at a house party, tune in to CNN's live New Year's Eve coverage with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin. Suggested drinking game: Take a shot every time Kath or Coops makes a sexually charged reference about balls (see this clip from their team-up last year) and every time one of the two mentions their love affair that, for obvious reasons, will never be (see this video of Kathy as she signed off with Larry King earlier this year.) Festivities with the perfectly suited pair starts at 11:00 PM EST on CNN.
Thursday, January 1: New Year's resolutions don't have to be a drag. Start 2009 off right by snagging some of the hottest tickets of the season. On the music and comedy fronts this year we've got you down for Kathy Griffin, Britney Spears, Billy Joel & Elton John, Katy Perry, Lykke Li and -- hell, why not? -- Celine Dion. Also plan for anticipated television premieres like Lost (January 21 on ABC), RuPaul's Drag Race (February 2 on Logo), Nip/Tuck (January 6 on FX), and the nail-biting Glenn Close drama Damages (January 7, also on FX).
