Beyonce surprised everyone tonight with the release of a brand new self-titled album! The visual album features 14 new tracks accompanied by 17 videos. A few of us from Homorazzi had the pleasure of seeing her perform here in Vancouver a couple weeks ago and after witnessing her epic performance, it makes me wonder how she had the time to secretly work on all of this?
I’ve only skimmed through the album (which is her 5th) and have definitely liked what I’ve heard so far. Surprisingly, “Grown Woman” didn’t make it on the album. That being said, the music video for the song is included as a bonus video. Of the new tracks, the only really upbeat song is “Blow” but it’s clear that she wasn’t going for a dance-type album with this anyone.
The album features collaborations with Jay Z, Frank Ocean, Drake,and even her own daughter, Blue Ivy. A couple songs like I like right off the bat are “Flawless” and “Pretty Hurts”. I can’t wait to dive in and actually go through each song and video. Speaking of videos, Bey hooked up with high-profile directors including Terry Richardson, Melina Matsouka, Jonas Akerlund, Jake Nava and Hype Williams.
For this week’s Sports Stud, I’ve chosen to highlight a Winter Olympic Hottie that we surprisingly haven’t featured yet… the handsome Steve Nyman.
Nyman is a 31-year old World Cup alpine ski racer on the U.S. Team. He used to be a slalom skier, but now competes mainly in downhill, super G, and combined. Nyman competed in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Nagano, as well as the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver where he came in 20th in men’s downhill. The 6’4 Park City, Utah resident
Nyman is looking to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Socci this February. Check out his sexy photos below and watch for him at the games!
A month ago, Donovan posted about the Warwick Rowing Team‘s video preview for their super sexy 2014 calendar. The rowing club does an annual calendar to raise money for a good cause. This year, their cause of choice is Sports Allies, a cause that helps fight homophobia in schools and in sports.
Today, we have a sneak preview of the trailer for the latest “making of” film from the Warwick Rowers calendar boys. The film runs for nearly an hour, with full colour, full HD footage of the boys hard at work during the photoshoot, naked from just about every angle. They are also talking about their sport and about Sport Allies, their new outreach program that is challenging homophobia among young people.
The film is available as a download from warwickrowers.org, priced at £11.99. It is currently online as a .mov 1080HD file. Versions at 720 and 1080 in .m4v format will follow later today. This video looks hot, hot, hot! Check it out below!
I thought I’d do something I haven’t done for this week’s Sport Stud post and that is featuring a motorcycle racer. This week’s sports stud is the handsome motorcycle racer Randy de Puniet. The 32-year-old is a French Grand Prix motorcycle road racer. He is currently racing for the Power Electronics Aspar team in MotoGP (having raced in this class regularly since 2006). Previously, he took five wins in the 250cc class before he moved to the main class.
With his chiseled body and handsome good looks, he’s made his way into many magazines and has some sexy shirtless photos as a result. I never would of thought I’d be able to find shirtless photos of a motorcycle racer given how much clothing they wear, but alas I was wrong!
Check out some great photos of Randy de Puniet below!
With the NHL Hockey season in full swing, I decided to choose one of the many hotties for this week’s Sports Stud. This week’s post is on Gabriel Landeskog, a Swedish pro ice hockey forward who currently is the captain of the Colorado Avalanches in the NHL. He was selected second overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by Colorado and on September 4, 2012, Landeskog was named the fourth captain in Colorado Avalanche history, becoming the youngest captain in NHL history. Pretty amazing! Just how old is he? Well he turns 21 years old…TODAY(November 23)!. Happy Birthday, Gabriel!
The handsome athlete has a great body and a smile that can melt the ice. I’ve included several photos of him below as well as a few videos. One of these videos is him shirtless and in his underwear making pancakes – a “Swedish Chef” if you will. Enjoy!

Last night, Lady Gaga did double duty as host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. With a strong opening monologue, the scene was set for a great show full of laughs and strong musical performances. Actually, before Gaga greeted the audience, we were treated to a hilarious sketch train wreck Toronto mayor, Rob Ford with Bobby Moynihan taking on the role. I was crossing my fingers that they’d do a sketch on this and thought Moynihan was perfect.
Gaga wasn’t afraid to make fun of herself throughout the show and I felt that in particular she really shined in the mockery of herself as “Old Lady Gaga“, playing herself in the future after people have forgotten about her. Her vocal performances were very strong and it was great that she had R. Kelly on the show to perform “Do What You Want” along with her. The two looked like they were having a lot of fun and they certainly weren’t afraid to get intimate with each other to bring the steamy lyrics to life.
Check out a handful of the sketches and musical performances from last night via the videos below. How did you think Gaga did on the show? What was your favorite sketch? Share your own opinions below in the comments.
