“I’m proud of what we’ve done, but the journey is not complete. I won’t be proud until the journey is complete,” Elton said at the event (via Fox).

“We’ve come so far with treatment that actual treatment is prevention. You can reduce the load virus so low now in someone’s body that the risk of passing it on to someone else is practically zero,” David added. “What hasn’t changed is the mindset associated with knowing your status and testing and then living a positive happy life if you are HIV-positive and staying on the medications.”

Caitlyn Jenner Opens Up About Panic Attacks During Transition

Caitlyn Jenner is opening up about the panic attacks she suffered during her transition in this second part of her Today Show interview with Matt Lauer.

The 65-year-old former Olympian played a round of golf with the morning show host and opened up about her life following the transition earlier this year.

“I had a massive panic attack,” Caitlyn said. “I’d never had anything like that in my life. It was, like, so scary. My heart was just pounding and this and that. In my head when I shut my eyes, it was just, like, ‘My God, what did you just do?’ Because that surgery kind of passed the point of no return.”

Caitlyn was also asked if she has any regrets since coming out as transgender.

“No regrets whatsoever,” she said. “I just want my family to be okay. All of that stuff takes time. You transition, your whole family goes through this. They’ve been a blessing in my life, and you don’t want anything to hurt them, and you wonder, are you doing the right thing? You know, living your true self. And everybody handles it differently.”

Make sure to watch the first part of the interview as well!

Jeremy recently revealed that he thinks Mark Wahlberg is responsible for Entourage‘s success.

“Well, I am excited about the movie coming out, because I feel like… you have to understand, I was lucky enough to be a part of it for eight seasons, and then the movie,” Jeremy expressed (via Gothamist). “I never had a lot of luck in my career, and I think that particular project, for whatever reason, and I would not be able to tell you why, maybe it’s Mark Wahlberg… They should study Mark‘s DNA, there’s something magical about him. Maybe because he was involved we were so lucky from the jump, so, it’s a miracle when your show sees the light of day, much less has this type of success.”

FYI: Jeremy is wearing Big Star jeans.

Zayn Malik Slams Drug Use Rumors, Is 'Angry' About Matt Lauer's Drug Use Question

Zayn Malik is speaking out about missing One Direction‘s Today show performance yesterday and slamming Matt Lauer‘s questions, implying his absence was drug related.

“I’m really angry and upset by what was said on the Today show,” the 21-year-old entertainer told The Sun. “I was really ill at the weekend, that’s why I couldn’t fly to America.”

“I was gutted to have to miss album release day, but I’m going to be back as soon as I can. As soon as I’m feeling better I’m going to join the guys and carry on with the promotion for the album,” Zayn added.

On the show, Zayn‘s bandmates said that he was missing because he had a stomach illness, and the crowd booed Matt when he asked if it was drug related.
