What a difference a remix makes? I was on the fence with Aretha Franklin’s Adele cover for her new album, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics. However now, Aretha’s rendition finally gets my R-E-S-P-E-C-T!!!

Thanks to Wideboys, I’m obsessed with the 72-year-old legend’s “Rolling In The Deep”-”Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” mashup. With a kickin’ ass beat, the track is elevated to new heights. Give the now anthemic single a listen below.

The First Canceled Show Of The Season Is…

In: Donovan, TV Shows

There’s no happily ever after for Manhattan Love Story. It took exceptionally much longer this year to happen, but the axe has finally fallen.

The ABC romantic comedy is the first causality of the new television season. The most recent episode attracted only 2.62 million viewers and a paltry 0.7 rating in the coveted 18-to-49 demographic. I saw the first episode but it didn’t really do anything for me even though I like the leads played by ANTM alum Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman.

ABC was also the first network to cancel a show last year. However, the axe fell on Lucky on October 4. CBS’ Made In Jersey and NBC’s The Playboy Club earned the dishonorable distinction on Oct. 10, 2012 and Oct. 4, 2011 respectively. Typically, networks have been swift and fast getting rid of dead weight but this year they’ve been taking their time. Will more shows follow suit now that the first casualty has occurred?

In other ABC-related news, the alphabet network gave good news to seven of its shows by ordering more episodes. Find out which shows will air less repeats below.

Recently, Brandy reunited with Mc Lyte, YoYo & Queen Latifah on BET’s Hip Hop Awards to perform the remix of her debut single, “I Wanna Be Down.” Can you believe it’s been 20 years since she first burst onto the scene? Insane!!!

The 35-year-old R&B singer reemerges on two slick new tracks courtesy of Los Angeles-based indie electronica act Mystery Skulls. Welcome back Brandy, welcome back!!!

Both “Number 1” and “Magic” feature Brandy in more of a guest appearance role rather than lead vocalist. Nile Rodgers who resurfaced on the massive Daft Punk hit “Get Lucky” also joins in on the action. Both tracks will hopefully appear on Mystery Skulls’ debut LP Forever hitting stores next week. Check out both tracks below and weigh in afterward.

Can we also state the obvious and how cute Luis Dubuc is- the man behind Mystery Skulls. Totes cute!!!

For their annual Halloween clip, Andrew Christian decided to go sacrilegious rather than the horror route. As per usual, the only day I felt comfortable posting their latest NSFW clip is on the weekend.

Playing off Catholic motifs, Jeff White directs a brief-wearing priest played by Pablo Hernandez serving communion to willing altar boys. He eventually ends up tied up, whipped and felt up. Where does one sign up ;)

Also starring in the clip are Rocky Santos, Murray Swanby, Cheddy Oakafor, Cory Zwierzynski and new-to-the-fold model Steven Andrade. The latter is the brand’s first ‘gaybie‘- straight boy who was raised by two gay dads. Check out the clip titled “Forgive Me, Father” below.

All the hard work has paid off!!! Five years after appearing on American Idol, Todrick Hall lands a full-time gig on television and gets Hollywood validation. Take that Season 9 winner Lee DeWyze ;)

Known for his impeccably produced YouTube videos, Hall has parodied Disney movies, beloved musicals, Mean Girls and everything in between. In 2015, he’ll take his cheeky brand of humor to MTV. The network has ordered eight episodes of his new show, documenting the life of a YouTube star. It’ll also follow Todrick as he takes his video concept ideas to fruition.

Hall is the latest YouTube star making it big on mainstream media. Bethany Mota has taken her fashion schtick all the way to Project Way guest judge to competing on the current season of Dancing With The Stars. In true Hall fashion, he announced his television deal by filming a parody of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Check out the wicked clip below.

Thank you to everybody who has supported me since before I even knew what a subscriber was. I am without words and searching for the vocabulary to say how blessed, humbled, honored, and flattered I feel to have been given this amazing opportunity. I can’t wait to bring my crazy world of YouTube to a brand new audience and I hope you all will join me on what is sure to be a ridiculous ride. Love you with all my whimsical heart,


Todrick D. Hall, AKA Quing Toddy.

teamm8 Goes Commando In New Campaign

In: Donovan, Fashion, Totally GAY!

Let me clarify first. Not commando in the sense of not wearing underpants. How weird would that be for an underwear company? Rather, commando in the military type variety.

Aussie brand teamm8 shows off their new combat collection in a sexy new campaign directed by James Demitri. Personally, I love the brand’s swimwear line. I have a few styles myself. However, I’ve never tried their underwear as of yet. Definitely time to rectify that situation soon.

Check out more images and a video promo below which also teases the company’s foray into women’s athletics in early 2015. That’s all well and good, but I hope for their future creative, they keep it strictly dickly ;)

FOX Developing Series Based On Archie Comics

In: Donovan, TV Shows

From the man who brought Arrow and The Flash to the small screen comes another comic book adaptation. However, this time it doesn’t involve any superheroes. Greg Berlanti just inked a deal to bring a live-action drama series based on Archie Comics on FOX. He’s two for two recently, so I have high hopes.

is relatively unknown but thanks to Iggy Azalea that’s all about to change. I hope she’s mentally prepared for all the attention as she’s about to be catapulted onto the worldwide stage.

The 24-year-old rapper taps the Danish songbird for “Beg For It” the lead cut off her upcoming re-issue of her debut LP The New Classic. Originally, there were reports Azalea was reuniting with “Fancy” collaborator Charli XCX on the track. I’m glad she opted to go with a new voice.

In addition to “Beg For It,” Reclassified will also see two other collabos. Jennifer Hudson and Ellie Goulding lend their unique vocals on “Trouble” and “Heavy Crown” respectively. I can’t wait for the new LP to drop on November 24.

In the meantime, check out her hot new single below. I predict another hit. If “Black Widow” can enter the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10, so can this track ;)
