Leighton Meester Streams New Album Heartstrings

In: Donovan, Music

During the height of her Gossip Girl fame, Leighton Meester signed a major-label recording contract with Universal Republic Records. The 28-year-old had a promising start, scoring a Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit with Cobra Starship‘s “Good Girls Go Bad.” Her label then hooked her up with Robin Thicke for “Somebody To Love,” but that went nowhere fast. Thicke once again screwing over a woman ;)

With no major label backing her, Meester decided to do things on her own. Mrs. Adam Brody pulled a Beyonce and randomly dropped an album titled Heartstrings this week with no fanfare. Based on her previous singles, I was expecting more pop club-ready fare. Instead, Leighton delivers a folksy Lana Del Rey-esque type of album. The understated LP is surprisingly not half bad. Check out the entire thing below.

I-G-G-Y brought her Australian swagger to Studio 8H this weekend, wowing audiences with two solid back-to-back performances. The 24-year-old rapper didn’t embarrass herself in her Saturday Night Live debut.

If Azalea had any nerves, she certainly didn’t let them affect her. Sadly, the same can’t be said about Danish singer MØ. The talented yet relatively unknown singer appeared/disappeared numerous times during “Beg For It.” Iggy somewhat addressed it afterward by writing, “MO congratulations on your first television! (It only gets easier!)” on her Instagram profile.

Rita Ora made a surprise appearance during the “Fancy” and “Black Widow” medley. Too bad Charli XCX didn’t tag along as well. It wasn’t the same with the background vocalists singing the hook of “Fancy.” Check out both performances below and weigh in afterward.

What a difference a remix makes? I was on the fence with Aretha Franklin’s Adele cover for her new album, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics. However now, Aretha’s rendition finally gets my R-E-S-P-E-C-T!!!

Thanks to Wideboys, I’m obsessed with the 72-year-old legend’s “Rolling In The Deep”-”Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” mashup. With a kickin’ ass beat, the track is elevated to new heights. Give the now anthemic single a listen below.

The First Canceled Show Of The Season Is…

In: Donovan, TV Shows

There’s no happily ever after for Manhattan Love Story. It took exceptionally much longer this year to happen, but the axe has finally fallen.

The ABC romantic comedy is the first causality of the new television season. The most recent episode attracted only 2.62 million viewers and a paltry 0.7 rating in the coveted 18-to-49 demographic. I saw the first episode but it didn’t really do anything for me even though I like the leads played by ANTM alum Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman.

ABC was also the first network to cancel a show last year. However, the axe fell on Lucky on October 4. CBS’ Made In Jersey and NBC’s The Playboy Club earned the dishonorable distinction on Oct. 10, 2012 and Oct. 4, 2011 respectively. Typically, networks have been swift and fast getting rid of dead weight but this year they’ve been taking their time. Will more shows follow suit now that the first casualty has occurred?

In other ABC-related news, the alphabet network gave good news to seven of its shows by ordering more episodes. Find out which shows will air less repeats below.

Recently, Brandy reunited with Mc Lyte, YoYo & Queen Latifah on BET’s Hip Hop Awards to perform the remix of her debut single, “I Wanna Be Down.” Can you believe it’s been 20 years since she first burst onto the scene? Insane!!!

The 35-year-old R&B singer reemerges on two slick new tracks courtesy of Los Angeles-based indie electronica act Mystery Skulls. Welcome back Brandy, welcome back!!!

Both “Number 1” and “Magic” feature Brandy in more of a guest appearance role rather than lead vocalist. Nile Rodgers who resurfaced on the massive Daft Punk hit “Get Lucky” also joins in on the action. Both tracks will hopefully appear on Mystery Skulls’ debut LP Forever hitting stores next week. Check out both tracks below and weigh in afterward.

Can we also state the obvious and how cute Luis Dubuc is- the man behind Mystery Skulls. Totes cute!!!

For their annual Halloween clip, Andrew Christian decided to go sacrilegious rather than the horror route. As per usual, the only day I felt comfortable posting their latest NSFW clip is on the weekend.

Playing off Catholic motifs, Jeff White directs a brief-wearing priest played by Pablo Hernandez serving communion to willing altar boys. He eventually ends up tied up, whipped and felt up. Where does one sign up ;)

Also starring in the clip are Rocky Santos, Murray Swanby, Cheddy Oakafor, Cory Zwierzynski and new-to-the-fold model Steven Andrade. The latter is the brand’s first ‘gaybie‘- straight boy who was raised by two gay dads. Check out the clip titled “Forgive Me, Father” below.

All the hard work has paid off!!! Five years after appearing on American Idol, Todrick Hall lands a full-time gig on television and gets Hollywood validation. Take that Season 9 winner Lee DeWyze ;)

Known for his impeccably produced YouTube videos, Hall has parodied Disney movies, beloved musicals, Mean Girls and everything in between. In 2015, he’ll take his cheeky brand of humor to MTV. The network has ordered eight episodes of his new show, documenting the life of a YouTube star. It’ll also follow Todrick as he takes his video concept ideas to fruition.

Hall is the latest YouTube star making it big on mainstream media. Bethany Mota has taken her fashion schtick all the way to Project Way guest judge to competing on the current season of Dancing With The Stars. In true Hall fashion, he announced his television deal by filming a parody of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Check out the wicked clip below.

Thank you to everybody who has supported me since before I even knew what a subscriber was. I am without words and searching for the vocabulary to say how blessed, humbled, honored, and flattered I feel to have been given this amazing opportunity. I can’t wait to bring my crazy world of YouTube to a brand new audience and I hope you all will join me on what is sure to be a ridiculous ride. Love you with all my whimsical heart,


Todrick D. Hall, AKA Quing Toddy.

Sports Stud: Luke Burgess

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

For this week’s Sports Stud we have the incredibly sexy and woof-worthy, Luke Burgess. The 27-year-old athlete is an English professional rugby league footballer in the National Rugby League (NRL) for Australian club, South Sydney Rabbitohs.

His brothers are also super hot rugby players and we’ve even previously featured one of them (George Burgess) as a Sports Stud. George has a twin brother named Tom that plays professional rugby, and also their other brother Sam does as well. These guys will have you saying “YES!” to Burgess. The four of them were featured on a Buzzfeed article earlier this year that was titled, “Stop Everything And Look At These Four Hot Rugby Player Brothers.” These are guys are almost too much to handle at once… so start with Luke in the pictures below.

Luke Burgess’ other half is model Yolanda Hodgson, a contestant of Australia’s Next Top Model in 2011. The happy couple share a daughter together, born in May of 2013. Check out his photos below, as well as a couple videos. I’ve also included a link to his Instagram… should you be thirsty for more. Enjoy!
