At this rate, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is going to have more wannabe pop stars than Bravo’s “The Housewives of…” franchise. The latest reality star to jump on the novelty single bandwagon is the fierce Sahara Davenport from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 2. I have to give Sahara credit, it’s not bad and the production value of the music video is the best I’ve seen from any of Ru’s guuuuuurls. “Go Off!” is the sophomore release for the female illusionist. It’s a follow-up to her debut single, “Pump With Me“.
For the video, Davenport wanted a cleaner and less busy approach. Of course, we’re referring to a drag queen, so less busy is all relative. Directed by Syuji Honda, the clip features Sahara performing all her signature energetic high kicks as seen during her season of Drag Race. Remember that lip-sync for her life when girlfriend worked it out on pointe. Ferocity. The single has already landed on iTunes Top 200 Dance Singles Chart. A dance remix by DJ Manny Lehman is scheduled to be released later this month.
Check out Sahara (née Antoine Ashley) in her new music video below. It features a cameo from her boyfriend and RuPaul Season 3 alum Manila Luzon. Upcoming Season 4 RuPaul contestant Jiggly Caliente also pops up in the video. Talk about a RuPaul triple threat. These three should just form a girl band and reach for the glittery stars.
For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to throw a well known mixed martial artist into the mix. To tell you the truth, I’m very surprise I hadn’t written about him yet. Canada’s very own Georges St. Pierre is one of the hottest MMAs there is. In addition, he’s also the current Welterweight Champion of the UFC and is ranked as the No. 1 Welterweight in the world according to various publications. To top that off, in 2010 he was named the Canadian Athlete of the Year by Rogers Sportsnet.
The 30-year-old stud is from Quebec and is more commonly referred to as GSP for short. His body is in impeccable shape – this guy even has his own calendar! GSP also made the cover of the Men’s Health April 2011 Issue, and I’ve included a behind the scenes video below so you can hear his French accent. My favorite part of the interview is when GSP says, “I do like a banana at the end of the day.” Oh, speaking of videos, I’ve also included a video of competitor Josh Koscheck saying that he is gonna “motor boat GSP’s ass” – LOL. We know what he meant, but of course it completely didn’t come out that way, nor did he help the situation with his action & sound effect. Enjoy the videos and sexy photos below!
Michael Chase Dimartino, who now goes by Mister Chase has just released a sign language cover of “F*ck You Very Much” by Lily Allen – and I LOVE IT! We’ve written about Mister Chase before, having done covers for many other well known hits and also performing his own original songs. I asked Mister Chase what made him choose this Lily Allen song and why he chose the “Super Mario Bros” concept for his new video. Here’s what he had to say:
“The way Lily Allen sings the song is sweetly, ironically, sardonically. In order to portray that inflection with my hands I wanted to use imagery that calls up associations of happiness, of sweet innocence. What better way than Mario!”
In this new Super Mario themed video, Chase stomps on, kicks, and punches out the anti-gay faces we’ve all come to… what’s the opposite of love?
With the faces of Michelle Bachman, George W. Bush, Westboro Baptist Church, among others, taking the places of the Mario Bros “Gumbas” and “Koopa Troopas,” you’ll find that it’s thoroughly entertaining.
This year’s Sexiest Man Alive winner may be seen as an upset for some of you, but that doesn’t stop the mag from housing pages and pages of other sexy man for us to oogle and oggle over. One of those men is Glee scene stealer, Darren Criss. There is no doubt that Criss is sexy, but wait until you see this little behind-the-scenes footage of Darren’s photo shoot for People mag Sexiest Man issue.
Going for a little dip in his denim with no shirt on (swoon), Darren has landed on People’s Men of the Year list. During the little interview with E! discussing the shoot, he also spills on his crush worthy co-star, Dianna Agron. He even goes as far to call them kindred spirits but admits that he doesn’t think he’s on her level.
Well for what it’s worth Darren, we think you are on our level and we’re looking forward to seeing more from you in the future. I hope that Glee is only the launch pad for a very long and prosperous career. Once Darren leaves Glee behind, I think he could become the next breakout star like how Zac Efron left Disney behind and became one of Hollywood’s hottest commodities. Check out Darren’s shoot with People below.
Last week, Andy Samberg was in the closet with host Mike O’Brien, and with the exception of the dangling dildo and a simulated blowjob, I have to say it was a little underwhelming. Samberg’s low energy made for more of a “7 Minutes in Purgatory” instead of 7 Minutes In Heaven.
I’m happy to report that this week, British comedian and actor John Oliver is much more entertaining in the closet with Mike O’Brien. You know him best from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, as well as a regular on the series Community. He also was the voice of Vanity Smurf in the 3D movie. After he answers some of O’Brien’s oddball questions, the two engage in closet theatre where Oliver plays the British man that appears to make O’Brien sign paperwork prior to cross-dressing for the first time. LOL. Lastly, as always, there is the kiss – in this cases, it’s kisses. Enjoy!
Lights, camera, gay action. Chuck Holmes built a gay porn empire, then used his fortune to help fund the gay rights movement. A new documentary is in the works called “The Chuck Holmes Story,” that will take viewers through the ups and downs of his life journey.
Ever heard of Falcon Studios? I thought so. Falcon Studios porn videos were the first ones I ever watched. Well, Holmes was the creator – the gay Hugh Hefner if you will. Have you heard of the Human Rights Campaign (aka. HRC) ? Holmes used the money from Falcon as the seed money to help build HRC, the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, and the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Center. I believe his story is an important one to tell.
In the 80s, porn became a much more risky business and was punishable by federal prison. The AIDS crisis threatened to destroy a community and an industry. During this time, Holmes faced alcohol and drug abuse, and things only got worse when he found out he was HIV positive. He died in 2000, but not before starting the HRC and becoming a political force for equal rights. Check out the trailer below to see what the film will be about.
Mike Buonaiuto, a filmmaker from UK has produced a new short film that is sure to have a few eyes blinking and turn a few heads. With all of the news reports of homophobia and bullying going on all over the work, Mike thought he would produce a video that expressed how he felt about it. It’s called Adam: Next Generation Robotics. The idea is to really help youth become confident in who they are and allow them to know that they do not have to be silenced. Check out the video’s description below.
The film mocks up a futuristic advert for a customizable robot and uses the mechanical metaphor to say we should never seek to control, suppress or silence a person, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. We are not robots.
With so many youth out there suppressing themselves due to bullying or fear, Buonaiuto hopes this video can be a positive message to them. He hopes to encourage confidence within. While I like the video, I feel like without a vivid description, the concept may come off a little bit skewed. However, the video is really well done and the guy is pretty cute. But, does that take away from it’s important message? You decide. Check out the video below.
I thought for this week’s Man Crush, I’d take a break from the acting world. Since our other two weekly features, Model Behavior and Sports Stud highlight hotties from the modeling and sports world respectively, it limits my pool of resources. Some might consider today’s choice an athlete, but he’s much more than that. This guy has more multi-hyphenates than Jessica Simpson, Madonna and Heidi Klum combined. Say “hello” to Nick Beyeler.
According to his official website, Beyeler is a dancer, aerialist, fitness model, martial arts fighter and double twisting World Gymnastic Aerobics Champion. How’s that for a mouthful. Just when I thought I was tired of seeing those silk fabric aerialists, Nick comes along and makes me change my mind. I could watch him wrangle with fabric in mid-air all day, and especially, all night long.
Nick was born on March 29, 1975 in Bern, Switzerland. The 36-year-old won the gold medal at the 2002 World Gymnastic Aerobics Championships in Montpellier, France. Speaking of medals, he showed off his amazing acrobatics at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. In his spare time, he loves to scuba dive, cook spicy foods and play around with all the latest gadgets. Now that you have a few random biographical facts about Nick, you can feel less creepy when drooling over his pics. What are you waiting for, start gawking at his “body” of work below.
