Recently, Tyrell, Donovan, Brian and myself attended Elise Estrada‘s CD release party for her latest album, Here Kitty Kittee. Taking place at the Rock Star Academy in downtown Vancouver, the event featured a live performance by Elise Estrada and fans got to get their picture taken with Elise on the red carpet. Some people even got to go into the recording studio to record vocals to her latest single, Lipstick. Tyrell and I did just that, which was certainly a blast (and nerve wracking at first).

After Tyrell, Donovan, Brian, and I caught up with Elise, I sat down for a brief interview with the frisky feline, talking her latest video and my recommendation for her next single. If you haven’t picked up her album yet, you should. I’m hoping her next single is the upbeat dance track, Ying Yang. It’s hot, and in my opinion quite different to some of the singles she’s released in the past. Check out the interview below!

Donald Trump To Be Roasted

In: Celeb Gossip & News, TV Shows, Tyrell

The Comedy Central Roast began in 2003 when Denis Leary so eagerly agreed to a part of it. Excluding South Park, it was the channel’s most viewed show in history. With its success, the channel decided to keep up with the tradition. The show features a head roastmaster and then a slew of fellow roasters who can say anything to make fun of whatever they see fit.

The Comedy Central Roast has had some pretty great guests including Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, Joan Rivers and David Hasselhoff. The most recent celebrity to be added to the list of the roasted is non other than Donald Trump. His episode is to be filmed on March 9, 2011 and will air on Comedy Central later that spring.

Model Behavior: Parker Gregory

In: Donovan, Fashion, Totally GAY!

After taking a break from the world of fashion last week for my Model Behavior feature, I’m back with a top male model named Parker Gregory. The Texas-born stunner has worked on numerous runway shows for Nautica, Tommy Hilfiger, Baby Phat, Perry Ellis and more. Some of his print work includes an Armani Exchange photo editorial spread titled “Daytripper“. His versatile looks have allowed him to transition from catalogue campaigns like Macy’s and Abercrombie & Fitch to higher end labels like Dolce & Gabbana, Oscar De La Renta and Karl Lagerfeld.

Parker was born on December 18, 1984 to a large family which includes over 20 cousins. He entered the world of modeling via a friend who introduced him to an agent. That meeting led to him signing with Click Models which still represents him today. Even though he’s a successful fashion model, his dream job growing up was to become a fireman. When modeling ends, he eventually would like to act and pursue a career in that competitive field.

The dreadlocked singer came close to walking away with the American Idol Season 9 title. Each week, Crystal Bowersox consistently delivered pitch-perfect performances which won over the voting public. She was a contestant type not seen on the Idol stage before, and it brought a breath of fresh air to the aging singing competition.

Despite placing second to Lee DeWyze, Crystal looks to overtake the Season 9 winner where it counts… the sales charts. Her debut album “Farmer’s Daughter” hit store shelves on December 14, it looks to move around 50K units its debut week. Not great, but better than DeWyze’s record low sales for an Idol winner or runner-up.

Nicknamed Mamasox during her Idol run, her autobiographical lead single and title track perfectly captures her Mama image on the show. The folk-rock tune, written by Crystal, is a “bluntly and brutally honest” account of her tumultuous relationship with her mother. The Meiert Avis-directed video carries on the same “healing cycle” message found in the lyrics.

And The Winner Of The Sing-Off Season 2 Is…

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Tonight, it all comes down to your votes America. Last week, the judges were faced with an impossible decision: Who to send to the final of The Sing-Off. Between Committed, The Backbeats, Street Corner Symphony and Jerry Lawson & Talk of the Town, the judges couldn’t decided and in the end, sent all four groups to the finale. You voted and tonight, we will crown the champion of this season.

When I saw that the show was going to be two hours tonight, I knew that we were going to have a lot of filler and boy, I was right. During the opening credits, we learned that there would be a few guest appearances from Sara Bareilles, Sheryl Crowe and Neil Diamond. We begin the night with a group performance from the final four groups. It honestly was my least favorite of the entire season. I was really hoping that with it being so close to the holidays that they would sing an epic Christmas tune but alas, they sang a generic song that didn’t sound all too together.

Now that the competition is complete, we were treated to a lot of performances for the sake of hearing our final four groups perform.

Top Gay Parodies & Videos Of 2010

In: Patrick, Totally GAY!

Over the past couple years, there has been a huge trend in gay music video parodies going viral on YouTube. It makes sense. Gays love music, dancing, and being in the spotlight. In 2009, it was all about Lady Gaga. Countless “Bad Romance” parodies flooded the internet, and I guess you can say that’s where it all started. This year, two new ladies took Gaga’s spot as the focus of gay after school projects: Katy Perry and Ke$ha.

Some of the biggest hits of the year, also became the most popular parodies on YouTube. Below, I’ve compiled a list of the Top 10 Gay Music Video Parodies of 2010. Props to Ryan James Yezak for his incredible work, with five of his videos (yes 50% of them his) making it into the list. To keep things interesting, there’s a video that I included that actually is not a parody, but an original “gay themed” song (although a straight anthem), that is so hilarious that I just had to include it. Check them out and cast your vote for your favorite!

SWTS Season 1 Episode 5: Video Performances

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Last week there was no shortage in drama on the show. With Brandon Mychal Smith pulling out of the competition and Bethenny Frankel showing the judges she won’t go quietly. After the performances, Jonny Moseley still remained top dog with Rebecca Budig nipping at his heels. The competition is coming to a close and tonight, the stakes are high as the stars compete for the final two spots in tomorrow’s finale. Honestly, if you are one of the ten people who actually watch this show, its should be a no brainer that Bethenny is going home tonight. But, you never how America votes, so we may be in for the shock of the century.

Tonight, the pairs have had to learn not one, but two dances in the short week they have had to prepare. First, the three couples will the take the ice in a group routine. The extra points they earn in this round could really make a difference. Then, there is the flashy free-skate where anything can happen. The scores from last week will be to the scores from this week. That, paired with your votes will determine who will be the final two couples.

We get to sneak a look at the rehearsal for the group routine with the show choreographers. They will be dancing together as a big group but each pair will get thirty seconds to shine on their own. Jonny knows he’s the only male celeb left so he has to step it up to match up to the male pros. Fred and Rebecca take a moment to size up the competition giving them confidence in their partnership. For a quick break, the couples head out to volunteer and skate with some local kids. It was really great to see them all work together but now, its competition time.
