They portray a dueling gay couple on the BBC comedy Vicious, but they’ll stand united this June in the Big Apple. Sir Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi have been named the Grand Marshals of the 2015 New York City Pride March being held on Sunday, June 28. This year’s theme has been revealed as “Complete The Dream.”
“In a year where Americans look to the decisions of our highest court, it’s especially important NYC Pride point a light to worldwide issues reaching far beyond marriage equality,” said March Director David Studinski. “Our marshals demonstrate advocacy on drastically different stages, but all with the same goal in mind. No matter where they work their words, they give voice to the ongoing narrative of our civil rights battle.”
New York artist and advocacy group FluidBiDesign leader Christopher Neal and Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera, Ugandan LGBT rights trailblazer, are also joining McKellen and Jacobi. Watch the announcement below. Ian and Derek’s part begins at the 1:27 mark.
After hearing his Kylie Minogue and Sia collaborations, I expected Giorgio Moroder’s forthcoming Deja Vu album would be filled with back-to-back disco-tinged masterpieces. Apparently not. “Tom’s Diner” featuring Britney Spears veered from the groovy 70s beat but his latest offering completely ignores it.
With Charli XCX on vocals, I was expecting “Diamonds” to be different, but not like this. It’s pulsating fast-paced frenzied beat harkens the good old days of techno. The hard bassline with Charli’s breezy vocals provide for a great contrast. Give it a listen below.
It started off as your run-of-the-mill audition. Moderately attractive guy with a decent voice belting out “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye. It wasn’t until Lewis Codling experienced technical problems that his audition kicked into high gear.
Four men pretending to be backstage crew came out to assist him. And assist him they did. Codling broke out into a high energy performance of Bruno Mars’ “Runwaway.” The quartet of buff men joined in on the fun by gradually removing articles of clothing as the danced alongside him.
Not surprisingly, they received ‘yeses’ across the board. One judge was so smitten, he sniffed one of the guy’s shirt. I would’ve too ;) Check out the sexy Britain’s Got Talent audition below.
Han Solo and Chewbacca together again and looking good. New Star Wars cast members John Boyega and Daisy Ridley join Harrison Ford and the iconic Wookie to grace Vanity Fair’s June 2015 cover.
Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz was given exclusive set access to snap the cover and accompanying photo editorial. Among others photographed include Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, and Lupita Nyong’o.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens storms into theaters on December 18. Check out a behind-the-scenes video below.
First of all, can we just address the photo above? Holy hotness Batman!!! Miguel is serving some serious sex on a stick and papa wants a piece. WOOF!!!
Back in December, Miguel dropped an EP featuring three tracks. One of those tracks was “Coffee.” The 29-year-old singer updated the track with more explicit lyrics. Now, he wants ‘f**king’ instead of ‘coffee’ in the morning and other sexually-tinged verses. For the new version, Miguel also enlisted rapper Wale to add some hip-hop swagger.
Rumor has it, the track will be included on his forthcoming album, Wild Heart. If you enjoyed Miguel’s previous work, you’ll love “Coffee (F**king).” It features his signature sound, consisting of a rough sensual beat paired with his smooth vocals. Give it a spin below.
After sharing a photo of Jared Leto as The Joker last week, Suicide Squad director David Ayer released two more promo photos, much to the delight of fans.
The first, captioned “Task Force X assembled and ready. #SuicideSquad” by Ayer features the entire cast, minus Leto, in full costume. Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Adam Beach, Karen Fukuhara and Ike Barinholtz are all serving major villain realness in the group photo.
The second is just a solo shot of Smith, but this time with his Deadshot mask on. The highly-anticipated film about the anti-hero team is currently filming in Toronto. Suicide Squad is slated to terminate the box office on August 5, 2016. Check out Will’s solo photo below, along with closer views of the above pic.
With Beyonce pretty much conquering everything as an artist, she’s shifted focus to mentoring and developing new talent. The 33-year-old superstar has reportedly signed two teen acts to her company, Parkwood Entertainment, according to the New York Post.
The first is a sister act from Los Angeles. Chloe and Halle Bailey have a strong YouTube presence due to their popular covers of artists such as One Direction, Katy Perry and Beyonce herself. I’m sure their killer “Pretty Hurts” cover grabbed Queen B’s attention, ergo a reported $1 million contract for the sisters.
For her second act, Bey headed out East to New York. Sophie Beem is a New York-based singer-songwriter. If she looks familiar, perhaps it’s from her time on The X Factor. In 2012, she made it all the way to the Top 40. She supposedly signed a $560,000 deal with Mrs. Carter’s company. Check out both acts below.
Correction. Most of the members of Spice Girls reunited for David Beckham’s star-studded 40th birthday party. Mel B. aka Scary Spice was notably absent. I’m thinking it was probably due to work commitments for America’s Got Talent as to the reason why she was MIA.
Filling in for her unofficially was Eva Longoria. The Desperate Housewives actress also flew down to Morocco for the extravagant celebration.
I highly doubt it happened, but wouldn’t it be phenomenal if the girls along with their new member, Latin Spice ;) gave an impromptu performance of “Stop” or “Spice Up Your Life?” Epic if it actually transpired. Check out more pics below
