With White Party just a couple of weeks away, I thought it was only fitting I share this promo from N2N Bodywear. Though I’ve never been to White Party, I’m pretty sure the pool parties is where it’s at. Wouldn’t mind sipping some margaritas while enjoying the view at this party.
The Los Angeles-based company corralled Jon Varak and a dozen fit studs and headed to Palm Springs for some fun in the sun. Check out the clip below.
Jay-Z launched his new music streaming service TIDAL with great fanfare earlier this week. Since then, the Whites Stripes, Daft Punk, Todd Rundgren, Alicia Keys and more have released exclusive content on the site. Beyonce and Rihanna are the latest artists to upload new music to entice people to subscribe to the new service.
Queen Bey released a ballad dedicated to her husband titled “Die With You.” Fittingly enough, it was the same day the couple celebrated their seven-year anniversary. Bey wears a ball cap while playing the piano in the simple visual. Once again, the 33-year-old went the DIY route. Jay-Z filmed the entire clip himself with no camera crew.
RiRi finally premiered “American Oxygen” in full after performing it live on the second day of the March Madness Music Festival. The Alex Da Kid-produced track is my favourite new offering from Rihanna this era. Still not feeling “Bitch Better Have My Money.” Are you? Check out both new tracks below.
Alex Newell is on fire these days. The Glee alum is carving out a niche career as the go-to featured dance diva. He’s already recorded killer tracks with Clean Bandit (“Stronger”), The Blondes (“All Cried Out“) and delivered a slinky cover of the classic Robin S house jam “Show Me Love” with Matvey Emerson. He just unleashed a scorching new collabo.
This time around, the 22-year-old actor teams up with The Knocks. The New York-based duo recently scored with the dance hit “Classic” featuring Powers. They’ve also remixed tracks for Dragonette, Ellie Goulding, Haim, Katy Perry and Tove Lo.
Their collaboration with Newell is a hot disco-inspired club banger. Alex’s soulful powerhouse vocals elevate the retro track to something one might’ve heard during the Studio 54 era. Give it a listen below.
Happy early Easter everyone. Nothing says the resurrection of Jesus Christ and cute bunny rabbits than jockstraps. At least, from Curbwear’s point of view.
The English underwear brand gets into the holiday spirit by releasing promo images featuring a sexy model rocking bunny ears. His name is Henry in case you were wondering.
According to Curbwear, he’s new to modelling but an expert at rugby. “His strong handshake matches his perfectly toned body.” Strong hands!!! Yum, sign me up. Check out more pics below.
You can blame this all on The LEGO movie and it’s boffo $658 million global take at the box office. Another classic toy is heading to the big screen and it’s an interesting choice to say the least.
Something tells me though, this potential 20th Century Fox Play-Doh adaptation isn’t going to be awesome. At least, it’s got one thing going for it. Bridesmaids director Paul Feig is in negotiations to direct the film.
Martin Garrix recently released two music videos for “Don’t Look Down” featuring Usher. One centered around a towel boy and the other on his female counterpart. Any guesses which one I liked better? LOL.
Even though his current single is still climbing the charts, the 18-year-old Dutch producer teased two more high-profile collaborations during his set at Ultra Music Festival in Miami last weekend. He seized the opportunity to preview tracks featuring John Legend and Ed Sheeran on “Waiting For Love” and “Rewind Repeat It” respectively.
At first listen, I’m liking the latter better. Clearly, Garrix overcame the ‘challenge‘ of working with someone with poppy vocals. Martin previously revealed his initial struggles working with Sheeran’s to FaceCulture. Check out both tracks after the jump and his Usher visual.
For this week’s Sports Stud, I chose to feature a professional wrestler named Mike Pucillo. Earlier this week, the former Ohio State wrestling champion came out as gay. It’s always great when a professional athlete has the courage to come out and pave the way for future athletes that find themselves in the closet.
Pucillo had been trying to find the words to come out for months and then finally one morning this past December, he sent a long text message to his best friend and college teammate, Reece Humphrey. Here’s what he had to say about the experience: “I think telling him was an unbelievable weight off my shoulders (and) I didn’t think I would feel that good just telling him,” said Pucillo. “Reece has always been someone with a very open mind and I thought maybe he would understand.”
By coming out, Pucillo hopes it will help others: “I want people to know that you aren’t alone. If I can just help one person get through, then I will be happy.” A big congratulations to Mike! Check out his photos below.
Mark your calendars folks. On January 23, 2017 the Groundhog Day musical hits Broadway. Why producers didn’t wait just a few days later to open it actually on Groundhog Day is a little odd. Opening on that day would’ve been perfect.
The 1993 comedy starred Bill Murray as a Pittsburgh TV weatherman who gets caught in a time loop and relives the same day over and over. Andie MacDowell co-starred in the film which raked in over $70 million at the box office.
Director Matthew Warchus and composer-lyricist Tim Minchin will again be joined by choreographer Peter Darling and designer Rob Howell on the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The book is by Danny Rubin, who co-wrote the Columbia Pictures film’s screenplay with director Harold Ramis.
“Our version of Groundhog Day is going to be both instantly recognizable, and utterly different,” Composer-lyricist Tim Minchin said of the project. “The central conceit is perfectly suited to the theatre, in my opinion. In fact, I think many of its ideas could be enhanced by the stage. It has the potential to be complex, dark, visually fascinating, and thematically rich, whilst still being a joyous romantic comedy with cool tunes and lots of gags. It’s certainly not an easy job, and I’m truly honored – and genuinely excited – that Danny is letting me have a crack at it.”
