Do you remember the first time you saw one of the Eating Out movies? It rewrote the rule book for gay-themed films and pushed the boundaries of what was considered the norm. The second film even showed full-frontal nudity with actor and model Marco Dapper. The third installment introduced us to Zack and Casey (Chris Salvatore & Daniel Skelton) and their rocky, dramatic relationship. Well, the two are back to try and figure out in the fourth film in the series, Eating Out: Drama Camp.

Zack and Casey’s relationship seems to be in a slump but things are about to change as the gang heads to Dick Dickey’s Drama Camp for the summer. When Zack meets Benji (Aaron Milo) there is an instant connection. But not wanting to interfere with Zack’s current relationship, Benji pretends to be straight. When Benji and Zack get cast as lovers in an updated, sexed-up version of The Taming of the Shrew, their self-restraint is put to the test. And when the sparks start to fly, Casey’s trusted friend Penny takes matters into her own hands by setting a poison oak trap for Benji so that Casey can step in as Benji’s understudy.

But when Beau (Ronnie Kroell) starts crushing on Casey, Casey wonders if he and Zack are really meant to be together after all. Meanwhile, Jason, the straight director who likes to film gay guys to impress the straight chicks, starts falling for Lilly (Harmony Santana), the transgendered girl. As if all that’s not enough, Aunt Helen (Mink Stole) has tapped into her inner couger and takes on a new boy toy, Andy (Joel Rush).

In the trailer (that you can check out below), you’ll see that the franchise is up to their usual antics and hilarity. A little fun fact about this film is that Patrick and I both auditioned for this film and the film that will follow it, Eating Out 5. This film is set for release this July. Watch out for it.

This past weekend, the world remembered Michael Jackson, two years after his death. Yesterday, the red jacket that he wore in the “Thriller” music video was sold in an auction. The former owners of the jacket were his long time costume designers, Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush. The inner lining of the jacket was inscribed to them saying, “To Bush and Dennis, All My Love, Michael Jackson.”

The jacket was expected to sell for about $200,000. Tompkins and Bush are also donating partial proceeds to the Shambala Preserve, where MJ’s Bengal tigers Thriller and Sabu have lived since 2006.

So how much did the “Thriller” jacked end up selling for and who bought it?

The scoop after the jump…

This weekend, Beyonce performed at the 2011 Glastonbury Festival in the UK becoming the first female in ages to headline the show. She performed several songs in front of the 175,000 people there, including some of her new songs, some of her old songs, and even some covers! She even sang some of the best Destiny’s Child tracks, paying her respects by getting the audience to say hi to “Kelly” and “Michelle”.

Beyonce kicked off the show with “Crazy In Love,” and covered songs by Kings of Leon, Prince and Alanis Morissette. After her set, Beyonce told BBC, “This night was a dream. I felt like a rockstar, and the crowd, they looked like rockstars, and I’m just so honored, really. This is… the highlight of my career.”

After this crazy show in the UK, the superwoman also performed via satellite for the 2011 BET Awards last night as well (Coincidently, Kelly Rowland also performed!). She’s Foxy Cleopatra and she’s a whole lotta woman! Timed perfectly, her new album 4 hits shelves this week. Watch her performances below. Especially the Destiny’s Child one!

New Releases Out This Week: June 27th

In: Charge It, Movies, Music, Tyrell

This week is full of great new releases to stimulate the ears and the eyes. In movies, Vanessa Hudgens takes over our DVD collection in an action thriller and a romantic drama. In music, two country legends come out with new albums while a Disney princess releases her third album and an American Idol winner shows us what he’s made of.

This week’s featured new release is none other than Ms. Beyoncé and her new release 4. Although her first single Run The World may not have performed very well, but the performance of 1+1 on American Idol had people turned on their ear in anticipation for the full length album. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek and here’s what I have to say.

Some of the songs on the album may not be radio friendly or commercial but there is no denying that Beyoncé is a true artist and an absolute musical genius. Lyrically, the album is creative and the musicality is inventive and creative. Just when you think you have a song figured out, something different happens. I highly recommend checking out End of Time, Countdown and Best Thing I Never Had; all three are my absolute favorites.

Just Call Her Dr. Oprah Winfrey

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

On Friday, the Queen of television, Oprah Winfrey headed to South Africa to receive an honorary doctorate degree in education from the University of the Free State. Not to be outdone, Oprah dressed in formal cap and gown for the affair and was moved to tears by the ceremony and the presentation of her award.

With Oprah rolling into the town, the central farming town of Bloemfontein pulled out all of the stops to make sure Oprah received the red carpet tribute. The university holds approximately 30,000 students. The Chicago Sun-Times said that the event rivaled any style of graduation that would be held for an entire graduating class. Well duh, it’s OPRAH! Her degree came with a citation saying that she had become a true South African:

“She did so because she believed that there was important work to be done here, and she wanted to be part of what Nelson Mandela and others had begun.”

In 2007, Oprah opened a school for girls in South Africa titled the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls. The school underwent some heat during a scandal that rocked the school and international media after a dormitory staffer was accused of sexually assaulting multiple students. All has been resolved and the school continues on without a hitch.

Another day, another Real Housewife releases their own single. I don’t who is responsible for telling these ladies that a music career is a good idea for them. Can you imagine your mom singing these songs? LOL. Oh man.

This time, former Real Housewife of D.C., Michaele Salahi has come out with an upbeat pop song called “Bump It“. She recently performed it live on an NBC news affiliate station. Backup dancers, rapping, and the sound of Salahi’s voice (I don’t want to call it singing). You probably recall that this is the Housewife that once crashed a party at the White House. Well, apparently she’s accident prone because she’s crashing once again in this “trainwreck” of a song. Below are some of the lyrics. Despite what you might think or hope, she’s doesn’t refer to the “Bumpit” hair volumizing device from those old infomercials.

“Like I’m so hot and like you’re so not / Speakers on blast, let the techno rock / Everybody in the club make your way to the front / Rhythm is the base that will make the crowd jump / Bump it.”

To be completely honest, I do enjoy the track and the beat, but the lyrics are ridiculous and Salahi’s voice is just herendous…especially live. Overall: FAIL. If you listen closely, you can kind of hear her laughing a little during her performance – even she can’t take herself seriously. To top it off, she looks and dresses like an older version of Heidi Montag. Choo, choo! All aboard to experience the trainwreck below!

It’s not very often that celebrities can pull off secret nuptials without having paparazzi follow your guests’ cars, seek out your caterer or fly helicopters above your outdoor setting. However, one couple (and to be honest, I didn’t even know they were together) pulled it off smoothly. I give credit to the groom who may have used some of his stealth like tactics from one of his movies to help pull off the mysterious maneuver.

Daniel Craig of James Bond fame and Rachel Weisz best known for her role in The Mummy wed last week in an ultra-secret ceremony just as secret as the romance. A rep did confirm that the two tied the knot on Wednesday of last week in New York City. The ceremony exclusive only included four guests close to the couple. One being Daniel’s daughter Ella (18) and Rachel’s young son Henry (4). The other two guests have yet to be identified or disclosed.

So when did this whole relationship come about? The two met on the set of Dream House, an upcoming thriller way the two play spouses. Sounds like a recipe for romance to me. If you follow Hollywood romances, you may know that Darren Aronovsky, the director of Black Swan is Henry’s baby daddy. The couple officially made their break-up known in November of last year. That being said, we can assume that Daniel and Rachel haven’t even been together a year.

Green Lantern may be one of the most disappointing superhero films made to date. It’s anticipation for it’s release was high yet, it failed to impress critics and more importantly, fans of the long running comic book series. So what went wrong? The Hollywood Reporter released in a recent issue 5 things that Hollywood could learn from the Green Lantern flop and how they could possibly improve if the studio were to green light a sequel to give them a second chance at box office and critical success.

One big reason ‘Lantern’ was a let down were the elementary special effects, paint-by-numbers script and poor direction. Let’s look at the director first. Martin Campbell is well known for transforming actors into action stars through his James Bond films as well as the success of The Mask of Zorro. Where Campbell missed the mark on this film was his lack of knowledge in the special effects and sci-fi realm. It didn’t help that the studio made a few mis-steps on their own by deciding to make the Lantern’s suit completely digital as well as suddenly transforming the film into a 3D option. This prolonged the production process which gave them less time to market the film and give test screenings. A few of those alone would have probably saved the film and gave them bigger box office success. Oh, and did we mention that the villain in the Green Lantern is a big black cloud? Did they not learn anything from the ridicule that Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer received from making their villain a puff of smoke? And how disappointed were Lost fans when they discovered that all that rumble on the island was coming from a smoke monster. However I digress.
