In honor of Arrow‘s first season concluding this week, I thought I’d pit two of the show’s male stars against each other in our latest Who’d You Rather poll. Given that Colton Haynes will most likely be Stephen Amell’s sidekick next season, it was only appropriate to pit this Batman and Robin-type relationship against each other.
First up is Stephen Amell. This Canadian actor just oozes man. The 32-year-old actor guest starred on numerous shows including Queer as Folk, The Vampire Diaries, 90210 and New Girl to name a few. My favorite was his role on Showtime’s Hung where he played a male prostitute. Lots of gratuitous shirtless scenes. But by far, his biggest role to date is playing Oliver Green on Arrow. The pilot gave the network its highest ratings in years. Those titillating promo posters certainly did the trick. Amell is a recent newlywed, marrying former ANTM alum Cassandra Whitehead.
Next up is 24-year-old Colton Haynes. Haynes started out his career by modeling for Abercrombie & Fitch, Ralph Lauren and JC Penney. Prior to landing his role as Roy Harper on The CW show, Colton played a werewolf twice on ABC’s The Gates and MTV’s Teen Wolf. He’s also appeared in a couple of episodes of The Hills, music videos for Leona Lewis and My Chemical Romance. Check out photos of Colton and Stephen below and cast your vote on Who’d You Rather.
We all know the saying, “the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice.” I’m betting that applies wholeheartedly to this week’s Model Behavior feature, Minkah Davidson. He’s all kinds of sexy. Those lips probably taste as sweet as brown sugar. Davidson is relatively new to the fashion industry but has already built a solid resume.
The 6’1″ stud has walked the runway for designers Jeremy Scott, Ian Velardi, Calvin Klein and John Bartlett to name a few. His editorial credits include appearances for a NY Times spread shot by Greg Vaughan and Lash Magazine. Currently he’s repped by Soul Artist Management. Check out a sampling of his portfolio below.
My summer guilty pleasure The Bachelorette is almost here and I’m not as excited as I normally am. Desiree Hartsock isn’t a horrible choice, but she wasn’t my favorite from Sean Lowe’s season. I was hoping Lindsay Yenter would land the gig instead of the bridal stylist from Northglenn, Colorado. I’m sure her borderline lunatic brother helped secure the Bachelorette job. Who doesn’t love watching a little crazy awkward family tension? Catch all the action and drama when The Bachelorette returns for a ninth season on May 27, 2013.
ABC just released the 25 suitors hoping to win Desiree’s heart or should I say “hartsock.” I’m sure a couple of them would be satisfied scoring the next Bachelor season instead of sweeping Desiree off her feet. Check out all the dudes below, along with the rumored FINAL 4, and the guys I would take on a hometown date. Be sure to cast your votes on your favorite(s) and leave me some feedback in the comments section.
Same-sex marriage is sweeping the land. On the heels of Rhode Island and Delaware becoming the 10th and 11th state to legalize same-sex marriage respectively, Minnesota approved a bill to legalize gay marriage by a vote of 37-30. The bill now goes to Governor Mark Dayton, who will sign it into law during a ceremony tomorrow at 5 p.m. The law will take effect August 1.
Minnesota now joins Iowa as the other state in the region to be a safe haven for fabulous gay weddings. Could this set off a chain reaction in the area, making the Midwest the second region after New England to have gay marriage all sewn up. Two down, only ten more to go. In the last federal election, Minnesota became the first state to defeat an anti-gay marriage ballot initiative. Congrats all you homo Minnesotans. I expect an invite to a same-sex wedding soon ;)
Another season of So You Think You Dance premieres tomorrow. Can you believe it’s the tenth season? It just seems like yesterday when the dancing competition began. In its inaugural season, it was all about crowning America’s Best Dancer. Realizing it was just one big popularity contest, it quickly changed to America’s favorite dancer. For the purpose of this post, it’s all about crowning America’s hottest dancer. My kind of contest.
Over the years, FOX’s dancing competition has featured a bevy of flexible studs, dropping it like it’s hot while shirtless and sweaty. Every season there seems to be one or a couple male contestants that captivate the hearts and eyes of teenage girls and horny gay men everywhere. I decided to go back through all the seasons and pick the Top 15 hottest male dancers to ever compete on the show. Will recently-anointed winner Chehon Wespi-Teschopp make the cut? One particular season dominated my list, owning all Top 3 slots. Find out which one and my HOTTEST pick below.
For the honor of Grayskull. This is the best thing Funny or Die has done in ages (save for those hilarious Gay of Thrones recaps). For their latest, they’ve tapped Kylie Minogue to star in a live-action reboot of the classic cartoon, She-Ra: Princess of Power. The reboot is even rebootier. At least that’s what the narrator claims. I know it’s only a joke but truth be told, this faux NBC show looks better than 80% of the shows currently airing on the peacock network.
Stepping into She-Ra’s shoes isn’t much of a stretch for the Aussie popstar. After all, she’s worn a similar headress during her Aphrodite days. Watch her as she battles Skelly aka Skeletor, teams up with her male counterpart, He-Man, and discover that she’s with child. You’ll never guess who her baby daddy is. That’s not even the biggest reveal. Who knew her last name was Weintraub? Check out the clip below.
During last night’s GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco, Adam Lambert was honored with the organization’s prestigious Davidson/Valentini Award. An award presented to an out LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality for the LGBT community. The American Idol runner-up became the first out LGBT artist to reach number one on the Billboard 200 with the release of his 2012 album Trespassing. Mel B was on hand to present the award to Glambert.
The 31-year-old also picked up another award during the event. He tied with Frank Ocean in the category of Outstanding Musical Artist category. Other honorees include Archie Comics‘ Kevin Keller and the San Francisco Giants. The baseball team is the first professional sports organization honored by GLAAD. They were the first ever professional sports team to host an HIV/AIDS benefit game in 1994 and first major league sports team to record a video for the It Gets Better project.
Joining in on the festivities were Jinkx Monsoon (RuPaul’s Drag Race); Rex Lee (Suburgatory); Jaymes Vaughn, James Davis (The Amazing Race); Kyle Richards (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills); Tamala Jones (Castle); Guillermo Diaz (Scandal) and Jessica Clark (True Blood) to name a few. Check out Adam’s speech below along with the rest of the winners.
RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Jinkx Monsoon graces the cover of the latest issue of Next Magazine. The Season 5 winner, along with her Final 3 sisters sit down with the publication to talk about their experience on the Logo show. Check out a few excerpts from their chat.
Jinkx Monsoon on the filming three separate endings: “It’s at least less bonkers now that Ru tweeted about [shooting three finales] and we don’t have to keep it a secret. It makes it a photo finish and nail-bitingly awesome.”
Alaska Thunderfvck on Alyssa and Coco’s drama: “The thing about [Alyssa and Coco’s] drama w as they were smart about it. They got there and were like, ‘we have drama but we’ll talk about it later.’ You know you’re going to get a few episodes out of your storyline that way!”
Roxxxy Andrews on diversity among the winners: “It’s time to crown a plus-size girl, and no Latino has ever won.”
In other Jinkx Monsoon-related news, the Pacific Northwest queen gets a remix treatment like her RPDR Season 5 castmate Alyssa Edwards. Jinkx delivers a spoken-word monologue in the character of Little Edie, whom Drag Race viewers will remember from the Snatch Game episode, set to the tune of Two Dudes In Love’s ambient chill trans beat. I prefer Alyssa’s remixed track better, but Jinkx’s “Schizophrenic” is perfect to play in the background at your next gathering. Check it out below.
