Model Behavior: Matt Loewen

In: Donovan, Fashion, Totally GAY!

For this week’s Model Behavior selection, I decided to shine the spotlight on a local hottie who’s made a splash in the modeling world. Growing up in Vancouver, I always noticed all the best looking guys were from Coquitlam (a nearby suburb for those who aren’t familiar with Vancouver). Raised in Coquitlam, Matt Loewen certainly lives up to that reputation and the entire fashion industry seems to agree.

Early in his career, this blue eyed stunner scored a high profile underwear modeling gig with Vancouver-founded Ginch Gonch. This exposure led him to do countless of other underwear ads including Papi, Calvin Klein, Undergear to name a few. Showing off his package in briefs and/or boxers isn’t his only modeling expertise. Loewen also does a mean strut and has walked for some off the most prestigious runways in NYC, Milan & Paris. Over his career, he’s booked major campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana, H&M, Armani, Esprit, Bloomingdales & Calvin Klein.

According to a few websites, his number one hobby is watching movies. Reportedly, his favorites are: 1. I Heart Huckabee’s; 2. Spanglish; 3. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; 4. Magnolia; 5. The Shawshank Redemption; 6. Pulp Fiction; 7. Sin City; 8. The Truman Show; 9. Anchorman; 10. Office Space. Music is also another passion of his, and loves anything that moves his body and/or soul. But enough stalling, let’s get to the goods.

TV BackTalk: Brad’s Final Rose Goes To…

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Last night, Bachelor Brad Womack took the final steps towards finding his ideal wife. His potential candidates? Seattle native Chantal O’Brien and children’s hospital event planner Emily Maynard. If you haven’t been watching this season or no little about these two, I’ll give you a brief history.

Chantal is the woman most famously known for being the first girl out of the limo this season, giving Brad a “message” from all the women of America. She then proceeded to slap him across the face. That pretty much set the tone for how she was the rest of the process. Snappy, emotional, and not my favorite.

Emily however is a pure sweetheart. The first night when she stepped out of the limo, she was an image of beauty, poise and perfection. She held a secretive past inside for a while, but once she revealed that she had a baby girl at home, Brad opened up his heart to her and her daughter. Such a beautiful story.

Let’s get the obvious out of the way. This guy is HOT. He’s got that whole Italian Stallion thing working for him. So, who is he? His name is Jeff Razore and lives in Seattle. He works as a marketing consultant and graduated from the University of Washington. In his spare time, he gives back to the community by helping coach and train young athletes. Sounds like an all-around good guy, right?

So what’s his connection with The Bachelor franchise? Well, that’s a little less easier to explain. For those who haven’t seen last night’s Bachelor finale, I won’t spoil it for you. For those who have seen it and want to know what the deal is with this guy, you’ll have to read below.

Comedian Gilbert Gottfried has been fired by Aflac (insurance company) over a series of tweets he made, joking about the tsunami and earthquake in Japan. Gottfried was the voice of the duck mascot but has since been fired and will be replaced as they search nationwide for a new voice. So, just what were these terrible tweets that ruffled everyone’s feathers? Here they are:

  • “Japan is really advanced. They don’t go to the beach. The beach comes to them.”
  • “I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, ‘They’ll be another one floating by any minute now.’”

Do you think Aflac was justified in firing Gilbert Gottfried over the tsunami jokes?

Mike Tompkins Covers Katy Perry’s “Firework”

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

NewNowNext nominee in the #ZOMG Internet Award, Mike Tompkins has done it again. With sounds only made by his voice and mouth, this Edmonton, Alberta, Canada native used his talents to this time cover and remake Katy Perry’s Firework.

With a whirlwind year behind him, his outlook on 2011 only looks brighter. Mike rocketed into superstardom when Perez Hilton posted his video of Teenage Dream/Just The Way You Are on his site garnering him 2 million views in under a month.

He recently trekked down to LA to work with artist and producer Timbaland to collaborate as a producer and writer with him for his Shock Value 3 album set for release in 2011. Appearing on many talk shows last year, there is no telling where Mike Tompkins will end up next.

So I nearly lost my shit cool when I found out about this. The cray-cray’s over at Exodus International, that “ex-gay” organization, had this to say on their website “Exodus International is the world’s largest ministry to individuals and families impacted by homosexuality. With over 35 years of ministry experience, Exodus is committed to encouraging, educating and equipping the Body of Christ to address the issue of homosexuality with grace and truth.” Also saying this about their new app “Receiving a 4+ rating from Apple (applications in this category contain no objectionable material), this application is designed to be a useful resource for men, women, parents, students, and ministry leaders.”

OK, WHAT the crazy town is going on at Apply that they can’t see the truth behind this hateful app!? Because I didn’t want to judge fully before I knew all the facts, I myself downloaded the app and just as quickly deleted that sucker. All I saw on it was hateful word after hateful word covered up by some lame attempts at pretending that “hate” isn’t what they’re saying. Like this quote off the website that made me shake my head, “Any way you look at it, homosexuality is simply part of human experience. It just happens. What you need to realize is that the human experience is in conflict with the way God created us. Exodus is an organization that believes that conflict is resolved in Jesus Christ, and we’re here to support those who are following him.” Excuse me? Did that just say pretty plain and simple that homosexuality is a choice? The only choice I personally see in being LGBT is whether or not to be true to yourself and live openly and happy or pretend that you’re not who you are and live the rest of your life hating yourself.

Just in case you didn’t get the memo, today is the beginning of “Matthew Morrison Mondays“. The “Glee” star kicked off his weekly feature where he’ll post videos giving insight on his upcoming debut album. Everything that a hardcore Will Schuester fan is aching for. In this week’s installment, Morrison reveals the inspiration behind his new single, “Summer Rain“.

I’m always a bit skeptical of television stars entertaining their inner rock star whims, because most of the time it goes horribly wrong. I like Puck, but Mark Saling’s first single was not good. Matthew’s “Summer Rain“, on the other hand, has potential. If you like Jason Mraz’s music, then you’ll enjoy Matthew’s as well. Give it a listen below.

I’m loving the newly released pics of Madonna, Out Magazine just released. For their “Ladies We Love” issue, the magazine chose both Britney Spears and Madonna to share the honors of gracing the cover. Last week, we saw a sneak peek of Brits, and this week it’s her idol’s turn. While Spears’ pictures are new and fresh, the magazine chose to go old school and compiled a bunch of never-before-released pictures of the Material Girl.

Photographer Richard Corman snapped Madonna, who was 24 at the time, a year before she became famous. Snaps of Madonna dancing with neighborhood kids, hanging out with senior citizens and other scenarios in the backdrop of 1980s New York, are pretty amazing. Even though you can see Madonna’s undeniable star quality, there’s this sense of innocence in the photos. Few would’ve predicted that Madonna, who’s still sporting some baby fat in the pics, would revolutionize the music industry. Truly a pioneer.
