“Girl, this is crazy.” That’s how Janelle Monae begins “Q.U.E.E.N.” She must’ve been referring to how crazy good the track is, because it is. The 27-year-old just debuted her brand new single from her forthcoming album, The Electric Lady. I never expected a duet with Erykah Badu, but I’m ecstatic it happened. This is friggin’ awesome.

Q.U.E.E.N.” was inspired by private conversations she had with Badu. She revealed to Billboard at Coachella that, “She’s a great friend to me; she’s like a big sister and it’s a song about private dialogue that she and I have had.” The track is extremely funky with its Prince-like guitar work and synths. The two ladies tackle everything from women throwing shade, twerking, religious tolerance and everything in between. Check out their sassy new single below.

Model Behavior: Arran Sly

In: Donovan, Fashion

Ask and you shall receive. When I shared a fashion spread featuring Arran Sly, one of our readers suggested I highlight the British model in an upcoming Model Behavior post. Here it is. I’m glad I listened because Sly is way cuter than he appears in that editorial. It definitely didn’t do him justice.

Arran was born in 1993 in the UK. The blue-green eyed stunner was scouted by Elite Models in 2012. Since then, he’s landed major gigs including ad campaigns for Calvin Klein with Matthew Terry and Armani Exchange. His editorial credits include features in Tetu, Attitude, Style and Vogue Hommes Japan to name a few. Sly has walked for Louis Vuitton, Z Zenga and many more. It’s no wonder he’s ranked in the Top 50 on With the buzz building around Arran, I foresee a long lucrative career in his future. Check out plenty of photos of him below.

James Houston Snaps Natural Beauty Sean O’Pry

In: Donovan, Fashion

In 2012, New York based photographer James Houston began a journey to celebrate the beauty of nature and raise funds for Global Green USA. He recorded the journey in a twelve-part webisode series, leading up to the launch of the Natural Beauty exhibition (at Milk Gallery NYC) and accompanying photography book.

In one of the episodes, he enlists the world’s No. 1 male model Sean O’Pry to go shirtless for his photography book, Natural Beauty. It aims to raise awareness about environmental issues. The book includes 120 stunning images of some of the world’s leading models and celebrities advocating with Houston for environmental awareness, including Emma Watson, Christy Turlington, Adrian Grenier, Brooke Shields, Arizona Muse, Elle Macpherson and many more. Check out the results of Sean’s photo session with Houston below.

The first images of Thom Evans as the new face body for D. Hedral surfaced a couple of months. The second batch featuring the 28-year-old former rugby player have been released. Set in a similar desert-like environment, the Scottish stud looks even better with his hair pushed back. God, I sound like Regina George(Rachel McAdams) in Mean Girls.

Can you believe 90210 star Jessica Lowndes gets to have her way with him anytime she wants. The two debuted their brand new relationship at the first weekend of the 2013 Coachella Music Festival. Lucky beyotch. Check out Evans showing off D. Hedral’s seamless underwear below.

Original Penguin Spring 2013 Campaign

In: Donovan, Fashion

Even though Original Penguin’s latest ad campaign has been circulating online for several weeks now, I thought I’d share it. I just love the color palette, prints and styling. It’s all definitely on point for spring and summer 2013.

Photographer Danielle Levitt does a great job of using Nashville, Tennessee’s local haunts to complement the brands threads. The feel of the entire campaign certainly evokes that summer feel. Pictured left to right are models Wendell Lissimore, Dusty Reynolds, Daniel Ness and Chris Colton. Check them out in Original Penguin clothing below.

Gregg Homme Releases One Night Stand Part 2

In: Donovan, Fashion, Totally GAY!

The first part of Gregg Homme’s new promo video ended with a cliffhanger. It showed model Philip Fusco receiving a booty call text in the wee hours of the morning. He quickly tidies his apartment and takes a shower to freshen up. And by freshen, I hope it included a certain place ;) Part 1 of One Night Stand ends with him stepping out of the shower.

The underwear company just released the second part. All nice and clean, Fusco opens his underwear drawer to pick the perfect Gregg Homme brief. Obviously, he tries on a couple to find just the right one to entice his late night gentleman caller. The doorbell then rings and… uh oh. Just like Reese Witherspoon, Fusco has a run-in with the law. Watch Part 2 below and find out how the fantasy continues. Hint. It’s a “happy ending.”

By Post Street Launch Party

In: Behind The Cast, Donovan, Fashion

On Sundays, we try to give more insight of us behind the scenes. Try being the operative word, since I just looked back and it’s been awhile since I wrote something about the cast. My bad. Today, I wanted to put the spotlight on a friend of many of us on the cast.

Meet Anna Thorsen. She’s the Editor-in-Chief of The Recently, she launched a new venture called by post street. It’s a limited edition t-shirt and music company which features fashion icons and house & hip hop deejays. The project is a collaboration between Anna and Vancouver street artist, Kat Thorsen (her mom). How adorable is that, right?

by post street held their launch party last weekend at 1181– one of our favorite YVR hangs. Anna is sandwiched between some of the lounge’s hot bar staff. Side note: Carson, to her left, is one of my besties ;) The one on the far right is DJ Adam Dreaddy whom we’ve featured on the site before. He provided wicked tunes throughout the day.

During the event, by post street debuted their first limited run tees, Collaboration 1 [KAR]. A great time was had by all. It was one of the best #sundayfundays I’ve had in a while. Collaborations will be released monthly and will feature podcasts made exclusively by the “DJs-of-the-month” to download for free. 3% of by post street’s net-monthly profits will be donated to Vancouver Friends For Life. Check out the tees below, along with a picture of my friends and myself at the event.

Travis Hanson Channels Brad Pitt For New Editorial

In: Donovan, Fashion

Travis Hanson, without a doubt, is one of my favorite male models of the moment. I’m sure you can tell, based on the amount of fashion spreads I share of the Wisconsin-born stud. For his latest editorial, he’s smoking hot… literally. I much prefer Travis this way, all tough and badass instead of his previous hipster chic look with those ultra-tight pants.

Hanson channels Brad Pitt for The Fight Club-themed photoshoot. In essence, he’s asking himself the rhetorical question, what would Tyler Durden do? Photographer Charles Quiles decided to use one of his favorite movies for inspiration. Check out the super smoldering outcome below.
