!! OMG, good news: Rapper CupcakKe is safe and being taken care of after posting an unsettling tweet last night !!

So, LGBTQ rapper CupcakKe , who’s known for rapping about frank sexuality and body positivity, sent out a scary tweet late last night stating “im about to commit suicide.” and then also posted a screenshot to her Instagram of her tweet with this caption: “Thank you for everything y’all have done for me I really appreciate it.” Obiously her fans freaked out and people were very worried for CupcakKe, who’s real name is Elizabeth Harris, but you’ll all be happy to know that she is now safe in a Chicago hospital.

After CupcakKe posted that tweet, more than 12,000 people — including celebrities like Kathy Griffin, Iggy Azalea, and CupcakKe collaborator Charli XCX — tweeted messages of support to her. Some also alerted the Chicago police report, who went to check in on CupcakKe. The BBC reports that Chicago police checked in on her several times and, when they got in touch with her, took her to an area hospital. The Chicago Police Department tells the BBC, “Officers went out a few times to check on Elizabeth. Once they got in touch with her, they took her to hospital — not for her injuries — but for a mental evaluation.”

We’re so happy to hear CupcakKe is safe and sound and that she’s getting the help she needs! Send Elizabeth the love she deserves today.

!! OMG, YES! Ellen Page and queer, female cast will do ‘Casablanca’ live reading for charity !!

Actor Ellen Page is doing a gay version of Casablanca for a live-reading of the classic in downtown Los Angeles. The classic film will be reimagined with a queer, diverse female cast in a table reading directed by Jason Reitman, the director of Juno.

“Live Read of Casablanca (1942),” which will take place at the Ace Theatre in downtown Los Angeles December 13, will benefit LGBTQ grassroots activists through the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice.

Tickets for the one-night only performance, ranging from $30 to $150, are on sale.

“ ‘Casablanca is such an iconic film and screenplay with some of the most famous lines in film history,” Page said in a telephone interview with Q Voice News Tuesday.

“It’s also one of the most iconic romance movies. We wanted to show a more inclusive cast. We will have a queer and female cast,” said Page, who identifies as a lesbian and came out in 2014 at an LGBTQ youth conference in Las Vegas.

!! OMG, WATCH: The cast of ‘Queer Eye’ talk about making a difference in Conservative America !!

“Having a preacher message me, slid into my DMs and said, ‘my whole life I was taught in church that homosexuality is a sin, that they’re pedophiles, that they’re heathens, that they’re definitely going to hell and that they choose to be that way and in turn my church I have preached the exact same way. And hearing you talk about how every single day of your life you cried and you begged and you pleaded and you prayed for God not to make you gay but you still are showed me that it isn’t a choice and that you were born that way and I’ll never preach that way in my church again.’” To hear that now little kids in that church aren’t going to grow up and be taught to hate who they are, that’s worth everything.”

!! OMG, FENDI’s new ‘Touch of Fur’ shawl reminds us of something that we just can’t put our finger in it… er… ON IT. !!

The “Touch of Fur” shawl by FENDI is a new part of this season’s womenswear collection, made from silk and wool, trimmed with fox fur.

I mean, if it weren’t for the fur, I feel like this would fit right in on stage at a Peaches show, or in a Janelle Monae video… Oh, and if anyone’s looking for it for Halloween – it’s only priced at a measly £750! Thoughts!?
