Hotmail Will Die This Summer

In: Donovan, Gadgets & Tech

It launched 16 years ago and as of this summer, Hotmail will no longer exist. Microsoft announced that all existing accounts will migrate to Outlook.com addresses and hopes to complete the auto-update process by summer’s end. With a reported 350 million accounts, that’s a whole lot of re-routing.

The reason for the move was due to Outlook.com’s popularity. Microsoft’s new webmail service has amassed 60 million active users in just six months, according to reports. I haven’t checked it out, but I hear it has great social integration and a streamlined design. Some say it could give Gmail a run for its money. Perhaps, I’ll give it a try.

In the coming weeks, expect plenty of promotion from the company’s multimillion-dollar marketing campaign. If they’re anything like their most recent ad featuring Seattle’s own Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, I can’t wait. I love that the duo’s music is getting major exposure through the commercials. Check it out below.

Listen To Kylie Minogue Whistle In New Track

In: Donovan, Movies, Music

When Kylie Minogue signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation management a couple of weeks ago, she promised new music was on the horizon. While “Whistle” has never been released, it’s not the music she teased her fans about. In fact, “Whistle” was recorded back in 2011 for a movie titled, Jack and Diane staring Juno Temple and Riley Keough. As a side note, the film title has no relation to John Cougar’s classic 80s track. In fact, the Jack and Diane in the flick are both women.

In addition to contributing to the film’s soundtrack, the Aussie sex bomb makes an appearance in the film. “Whistle” isn’t the dance track you’re accustomed to hearing from the 44-year-old singer. She collaborated with experimental Icelandic group, múm for it. Gunnar Tynes from the band stated, “It is not the typical pop song we might have written for Minogue but we rather wrote it with the film in mind.” Check it out below, along with the movie trailer for Jack and Diane.

While I love hearing all the juicy tidbits from celeb autobiographies, I’m never tempted to pick one up and read it in its entirety. For Clive Davis’ The Soundtrack of My Life which is out today, I just might have to change that. Not only do I respect the music legend, but I’d love to hear his insights on the superstars he’s made including Janis Joplin, Alicia Keys and Bruce Springsteen to name a few. And the cherry on top, Clive Davis comes out as a bisexual. I never would’ve guessed.

The 80-year-old reveals his first same-sex experience took place during the Studio 54 era in the 70s. It wasn’t until he divorced his second wife in 1985 that he began serious relations with men. Davis shares he was in a monogamous one with a male doctor from 1990 to 2004. Even though he’s currently in an other committed relationship with a man, he considers himself a bisexual. Tomato, tomahto.

In addition to all his personal anecdotes, Clive discusses his professional relationships with the superstars he’s worked with. From concerns he had with Whitney Houston’s lifestyle to his infamous battle with Kelly Clarkson on her third studio album, My December, he dishes it all out. As part of his publicity book tour, he stopped by Katie Couric’s daytime talk show to chat. Check out a couple of clips below from the episode which airs today. I wonder why Usher is there. Hmmmmmm ;)

Model Behavior: Kirill Dowidoff

In: Donovan, Fashion, Totally GAY!

I’m not even going to sugarcoat why I chose this week’s Model Behavior stud. After weeks of featuring male models from high fashion, I was in the mood for some who primarily poses in underwear and swimwear. When you have a body like this, it’s his duty to the gay community to show it off. The man is sex on wheels.

Meet Kirill Dowidoff a model/actor from Moscow, Russia. I first noticed this buff 21-year-old hottie in an ad campaign for ES Collection. He’s quickly gaining a following and I have no doubt he’ll be fronting a major underwear brand in the near future. Most likely in briefs since he says he’s a brief man.

Even though I think he’s absolute perfection, Dowidoff doesn’t think so. If he could change a body part, it would be his ears. LOL. I guess we all have a cross to bear ;) Check out photos of Kirill below snapped by photographers Ruslan Elquest, Alex Bago, Artem Subbotin and many more.

Meet The Real World: Portland Cast

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Since the most common nickname for Portland is The City of Roses, its residents are probably used to beautiful things with pricks and thorns. That said, I’m sure the city wasn’t ready to be invaded by visitors this prickly nor thorny. The cast for MTV’s upcoming Real World season are definitely not wallflowers. This group came to party, fight and hookup.

For it’s 28th season, the veteran reality show heads to the Pacific Northwest for the second time. The first being The Real World: Seattle which aired back in 1998. If I’m not mistaken, this is the first season to feature five girls and three guys in the cast. I’m curious to know why there wasn’t an even gender split.

I haven’t watched The Real World for several seasons now. I hate to admit it, but I’m getting way too old for this sh*t. Last season’s The Real World: St. Thomas didn’t appeal to me in the least, even with its man candy. For me, to reject a reality show with hot guys… that’s saying a lot. With all this said, I think I might have to sample The Real World: Portland. Why? Easy… the city is one of my favorites to visit. With its abundance of microbreweries, food trucks, male strippers and no sales tax, how can I not ;) Check out the trailer below. Portlandia, this is not.

Will You Miss Khloe Kardashian On The X Factor?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

According to the New York Post, Khloe Kardashian fans better prepare themselves for Khloe-free Season 3. FOX has reportedly decided not to “keep up” with this Kardashian.

Viewers who caught her X Factor co-hosting stint probably won’t find her firing too shocking. Critics found her chemistry with Mario Lopez, delivery and overall presence off-putting. There was even a rumor that she was getting paid by The Voice to screw things up purposely. LOL. LA hosting expert Marki Costello, said the following about the reality star.

“I am sure there was a big percentage of Khloe’s fans who followed her to ‘X Factor.’

But at the end of the day, when she doesn’t know what she is doing, are you helping your show or hurting it?

It was really hard for me to watch Mario with her. It made me, as a viewer, almost uncomfortable.”

We all have obsessions that are hard to explain. Patrick’s currently are all those Harlem Shake videos popping up everywhere. For me, my Achilles’ heel is anything Victoria’s Secret related. There’s something about watching those gorgeous Angels work their magic on the runway, beach or whatever location, that I find really fascinating. What can I say, I like pretty things.

As part of their Swim 2013 campaign, the lingerie brand filmed four stunning swim videos featuring tracks from the hottest artists in the world. The first one featured the ladies strutting their hotness to Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven.” VS recently released the second and third in the series with Candice Swanepoel and crew lip syncing to Maroon 5′s “Woman” and Justin Bieber’s “All Around The World.”

The fourth clip will debut on March 1. In the meantime, check out Behati Prinsloo showing off her bikini body to her boyfriend Adam Levine’s song serving as the soundtrack. Other angels featured include Erin Heatherton, Lindsay Ellingson, Barbara Palvin, Lais Ribeiro, Sara Sampaio, and Karlie Kloss.

Carmen Electra Makes A Fierce Comeback To Music

In: Donovan, Music

Before she became famous for jiggling in her red lifeguard bathing suit on Baywatch, Carmen Electra was an aspiring singer. In fact, she was one of Prince’s protégé. The Purple Rain singer executive produced her self-titled debut album. Since the record wasn’t commercially nor critically well received, Carmen’s pop career ended. 20 years later, the 40-year-old personality is giving it another go.

Carmen debuted “I Like It Out Loud” a couple of months ago, but just dropped the music video. Produced by Bill Hamel, the track is a club-ready jam which features Electra’s vocal and rapping skills. I hate to admit it, but after a couple of listens, it grew on me. The clip is equally appealing. It combines your typical party shots with footage from Carmen’s appearances on various talk shows including my silver fox boyfriend, Andy Cohen. Check out Carmen hanging out with trashy hookers, voguing gays, decent man candy while looking fantastically fierce. She looks amazeballs.
