This week, I had a chance to give a listen to the album Perfectionist by Cherrytree Records artist Natalia Kills. This songster caught my attention with her second track and video Wonderland. The song had a characteristic I couldn’t put my finger on but I wanted more. The video was also eerie and haunting and after that, I was hooked. However, her third single with will.i.am is really radio friendly and is appealing to a broad audience giving Natalia the attention she deserves.

In the song Free, she sings about “stretching that dollar” and spending money. When Patrick first heard it, he said it sounded like a anthem for the recession. Another song that deserves honorable mention is her track Zombie. Her computerized vocals are surprisingly haunting as she sings about being in love with a zombie. Cast member Nic even can’t stop listening to it. I find that if you appreciate Lady Gaga’s first album, then you’ll get hooked on this girl.

If you are looking for a party track to add to your playlist, I suggest you check out Mirrors, the first single released from the album. The beat is fantastic and the lyrics are superb. I also love the songs Broke and If I Was God. Overall, I enjoyed the record the most because it was consistent from top to bottom and I didn’t need to skip a single song to get there. I highly recommend you pick it up. Check out some of her killer tracks below.

Last night, Tyrell, Adam and myself attended the “Summer Blast Party” at the Rocky Mountaineer station here in Vancouver. The event was a fundraiser for the Red Cross and St. John Ambulance and featured several performances by local artists and hip hop dance crews, as well as a couple fashion shows put on by some talented designers.

The event was hosted by the lovely Tara Lett, whom we interviewed a while back. Before she took to her hosting duties, the up & coming singer and her two backup dancers wowed the audience with a hot song set earlier in the evening, wearing a sexy dress made of tiny gold records! Later in the evening, electro-pop musician Eric Solomon from MTV’s The Youth Electric took the stage to perform as well. It was a great mix of people at the event and we definitely had a great time. Check out some of the photos from the event below.

Kim Kardashin & Kris Humphries Wed

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

If you haven’t been “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” you may not know that yesterday, Kim Kardashian tied the knot with New Jersey Net, Kris Humphries at a lavish and star studded ceremony in Montecito, California. This is Kim’s second wedding at 30 but Kris’ first wedding at 26. Kim wore a gorgeous Vera Wang dress while Kris opted for a sharp Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo. (Do you think he rented it? LOL)

Many famous faces were in attendance including Kim’s friends Demi Lovato, Eva Longoria and Lindsay Lohan. Also in attendance was “Keeping Up’s” executive producer Ryan Seacrest. To support Kris, many of his Nets’ team mates were there as well as NBA stars Carmelo Anthony and of course, Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom.

The Help Takes Top Spot At The Box Office

In: Movies, Patrick

After great review and a lot of word of mouth advertising for the film, The Help took the top spot at the box office this weekend, in it’s second week in theatres. It’s expected to continue doing well in the weeks to come.

Believe it or not, there were actually four new films at the box office this weekend – and none of which were very strong. Spy Kids: All The Time In The World brought in just over $12 million and Conan the Barbarian only brought in $10 million. That’s a very week opening for that type of movie. Fright Night only brought in $8.3 million. The original version opened to $6.1 million in 1985, working out to $13.6 million when adjusting for inflation. Looks like that was a dud too. I can’t say that I was even the least bit interested in watching that film.

Lastly, One Day starring Anne Hathaway opened this weekend to just over $5 million. This figure isn’t that bad actually as the film was shown in far fewer locations than the aforementioned ones.

Summer may almost be over over where I am, but that doesn’t mean that the beaches aren’t about to heat up elsewhere. Some of the most exotic and beautiful places on earth are home to the best gay beaches. Thanks to Queerty, a list has been compiled of the 10 best places for sand and surf to check out. While the eye candy on the beaches is sure to please, the actually beaches themselves are stunning and are sure to make your vacation or day in the sun and complete treasure.

Sadly, I haven’t traveled to any of the beaches mentioned below, but cast member Rich is a yearly visitor of Playa Los Muertos in Puerto Vallarta. Now that I’ve checked out this list, I want to plan a serious beach vacation this winter when the temperatures drop here in Canada. Check out the 10 best gay beaches below and then vote for your favorite (even if you’ve never been to any of them).

When it’s not Voldemort, it’s someone else. Poor Daniel Radcliffe can’t catch a break! I kid. The “all-grown up” star of the Harry Potter series is moving onto the rest of his career, and in early 2012, we’ll see him star in the thriller, “The Woman In Black“. The movie is a remake of the 1983 screenplay where a woman named “Susan Hill” haunts a small English town. Before making it to the screen, it was first a stage play and a novel.

The story revolves around Arthur Kipps (played by Daniel Radcliffe), who is summoned to the small town of Crythin Gifford to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow. She was an elderly and reclusive widow who lived by herself in the deserted and secluded Eel Marsh House. The place is super creepy. The longer Kipps stays there, the more he realizes there is more to this woman than he thought. Also, the longer he stars at the house, the more he endures some terrifying unexplained noises and hauntings by The Woman in Black.

The film hits theatres on February 3rd, 2012. Check out the trailer below and watch very closely at the end of the trailer for something that totally gave me the chills!

When you used to think of the name Lindsay Lohan, you associated it with that cute red-head who played double duty in Disney’s The Parent Trap or remember her hilarious lines and antics in Mean Girls. Now when you think of Lindsay Lohan, you think of a troubled young actress who can’t seem to catch a break and get out of the party lifestyle to get her life back on track. Even being on house arrest didn’t keep Lindsay out of trouble.

So when rapper Pitbull wrote the lyrics for his hit Give Me Everything, I don’t think he expected for Lindsay to slap him with a lawsuit over the line, “got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” While the lyric may be clever (and somewhat true), Lindsay and her camp don’t think so. She filing suit for defamation saying that the line is causing “irreparable damage” to her image and career. Right, because YOU weren’t the one who got arrested for a DUI, right?
