…And here I thought the Betty White craze had faded away! Gay pop singer, Jonny McGovern has just released a song & video dedicated to Rose Nylund of the Golden Girls. The slow song is called “Take Me To St. Olaf (A Song For Rose) and pays tribute Rose and her Minnesota hometown of St.Olaf.

McGovern sings the song in front of what appears to be the actual house they used for exterior shots on the classic show. He then dances around outside with a Rose Nylund double, intermixed with shots from the show to compliment references made in the song.

You can also preview & buy his new three song EP iTunes… “Songs About The Golden Girls“. I’m talking to you, Dan. The other songs are “Zbornak” and “Blanche Deveraux“.

When your 90’s boy band career is being rekindled with a fellow boy band, and you’re about to go on a huge summer tour, the only practical thing to do is capitalize on the fame and release a solo track right? Well according to New Kids On The Block singer Jordan Knight, this is exactly the time to do it. His first solo single in what seems like forever is called Let’s Go Higher and the music video has been released.

The track itself isn’t my favorite but I do think the lyrics are catchy and fun. The beat isn’t big enough for me though. This song sounds like it could have been a Taio Cruz reject track. If the bass would have been pumped up and the drums would have been a little bit louder, I’m sure that Jordan could have reached that level with the track. However, it’s almost a swing and a miss for me.

The video also leaves something to be desired. The video to me feels like 4 minutes of flashes and out of focus filming. There isn’t really a story line other than Jordan is at the club and he’s trying to find that girl to take to the middle of the dance floor. But as all videos and songs do, I’m sure it will grow on me and I’ll be pumping this track loud on my speakers shortly.

Theatre Review: My Funny Valentine

In: Random Reads, The Arts, Tommy D

My Funny Valentine is a locally written and produced play done by some of our very own.

Going into this production, I had absolutely no idea what it was about. None whatsoever, and I was very excited to check it out. It’s been such a long time since I have gone to see a play (musicals don’t count), so I thought WHY NOT break my drought with something local.

My Funny Valentine is based around the events of the Lawrence King murder, who if you don’t know was a 15 year old boy who was shot in the head twice by his 14 year old classmate for allegedly being gay. I say allegedly because it’s been close to 3 years and it still has not gone to trial. Why did he get shot in the head? Well Dave Deveau who wrote the play gave you that whole story really cleverly.

With “Fast Five“, the fifth in the racing car franchise, roaring into theaters next week in North America, I thought it’d be a perfect time for another installment of Homorazzi’s popular new feature, Marry, F-ck, Bitch Slap. After playing the game with The Jonas Brothers and the Twilight boys, I was in the mood to play with some real men. So without further ado, let’s dissect these boys and figure out who’s marriage-worthy, good for a roll in the hay and who’s in serious need of a good bitch slapping.

If you’re a regular reader of the site, you know Paul Walker has already been featured in our other popular feature, “Who’d You Rather“. He edged out Ryan Phillippe and walked away with 56% of the votes. I’ve had a super big crush on Paul Walker for years now. He’s my first love- sorry Brian. Obviously I’m a little biased with this installment’s selections, but there’s still the suspense of which of the other two boys I’d bitch slap. Keep reading to find out. Also, don’t forget to post your selections afterward. I’d love to hear your thoughts in this very important pressing matter 😉

After months of speculation, Sir Elton John and his partner, David Furnish, have finally revealed baby Zachary’s godmother. The duo addressed the rumors that Lady Gaga would be their child’s spiritual advisor to Ms. Barbara Walters herself, in an interview for 20/20. Here’s the facts straight from the horse’s mouth. The horse being Elton John.

“Yes, yes she is,When you get to the real person under there, there’s a real simple person under there who loves her parents.”

John has been coyly addressing the issue for weeks, which included joking about Gaga’s involvement when he hosted “Saturday Night Live” a few weeks ago. The “Tiny Dancer” singer finally confirmed what most people were thinking. Not wanting to feel left out, David Furnish also gave his two cents.

“Zachary’s going to inherit an incredible musical legacy from his father one day, and she will be a good person to guide him through the ins and outs of the music business, ’cause she sure knows everything about the business now.”

It’s getting hot in here. So hot. So the firemen of the FDNY have decided to take off all their clothes and honestly, I’m not complaining (and trust me, you won’t be either). After a 3 year hiatus of “official calendars”, the firefighters of New York are baring it all to raise money for the FDNY Foundation. Last year, an unofficial calendar was released titled City of the Brave, but this will be the first official FDNY calendar release since the scandal in 2008 when one of their firemen/models was found in an adult film (bad boy… but kinda hot).

In a photo shoot with Battman, the hunks found themselves posing in everyday rescue like situations… they just happened to be missing a few important pieces of clothing.

“We know this official FDNY calendar will raise funds and awareness about fire safety and will serve to remind everyone of ways to be fire safe year-round,” said Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano. “The FDNY Foundation’s important role in our fire safety education, and the great work of our members, has helped push civilian fire deaths to record lows in New York City.”

Check out photos and video from the calendar here.

One thing I don’t do very often is go to my favorite artists’ websites. However, today was different. I happened to stumble upon Britney Spears’ official website and low and behold, I was greeted by a random countdown to something that is titled Sicker Than The Remix. I thought to myself, that’s quite the site takeover for just a Britney remix. And then, I learned more.

Thanks to a UK friend on Facebook (thank you Michael Morgan Bain), I discovered that Britney’s site wasn’t the only one displaying a countdown. Apparently, Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha had also joined in on the countdown fun. Why? Because the remix involved the two of them as well.

GET OUT! How awesome. It only makes sense. Ke$ha helped pen the hot Britney track and now with Nicki jumping on tour with her this summer, it only makes sense for all three to make a remix together. Now I have to admit, the preview doesn’t sound too promising yet, BUT I will await for the whole thing before I pass judgement.

Wes Craven Will Direct “Scream 5”

In: Movies, Patrick

With big success at the box office and a great response to the plot and thrill of Scream 4, which opened in theatres last weekend, Wes Craven has revealed that he will be directing Scream 5. Amazing!

“I imagine the core characters will continue. I suspect they’ll be with us until the end, because they just are the heart and soul of the movie and especially since we tend to kill off most of the other people. They’ll be with us. There will be some continuation of the drama of Sidney Prescott’s family and the ghosts that haunt it.”

Craven also said that the surviving stars, Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courteney Cox are all expecting to return.

I’m going to see either Scream 4 or Hanna tonight, but now I’m a little annoyed that I know the three aformentioned actors don’t die in the film. I mean, I’m glad that they didn’t, but I wish I had figured that out on my own. My fault for not watching it yet I suppose. For anyone else that I spoiled it for, I apologize (but chances are you would have stumbled upon it as I did. Anyway, I guess it wouldn’t be a Scream movie without them. Forget Ghostface, these three (especially Neve Campbell) are the face of the Scream franchise.
