taylor-swift-1989-song-mashup

As much as I tried to fight it, Taylor Swift’s new album 1989 has won me over. Damn the 24-year-old singer for making such extremely-listenable and catchy tracks. Naturally, since I’m now a fan of the album, I’m inclined to check out anything remotely related to it. Ergo this post.

YouTube star Sam Tsui, along with the guitar skills of Kurt Hugo Schneider, pay homage to the best-selling album by covering all the tracks in an amazing mashup. Astonishingly, they do it all in just a little over three minutes and so seamlessly. Check it out below.

2014-grindr-awards

They’re not exactly the Golden Globes or Oscars, but the Grindr ‘Best of Awards’ are entertainingly fun in their own right. The gays have to give their two cents as well during this hectic awards season.

For the third year in a row, the leading all-male geo-social networking app, surveyed its extensive user base to determine this year’s winners. When they weren’t looking for their next hookup, users weighed in on everything from their favorite song, television show and movie, to the gay icon of the year and the hottest trends.

“For three years now, we’ve released our Grindr ‘Best of Awards’ and it’s gratifying to celebrate the influence and progress of gay culture in mainstream media,” said Grindr founder and CEO Joel Simkhai. “This year, we continue to see more artists and notable figures come out, and more variety and complexity of gay characters in roles across TV and film. It’s always fascinating to poll our Grindr guys on the biggest highlights of the year and it looks like 2014 was a good year for Hillary Clinton, Nick Jonas and Zac Efron – all making our list for the first time ever.”

Check out all their picks below, along with a few predictions for the upcoming year including next celebrity to come out and biggest celebrity train wreck.

After scoring six Grammy nominations including Album of the Year and Best New Artist, naturally Sam Smith would want to celebrate. The 22-year-old singer takes a break from filming emotional heart wrenching videos for more lighter fare. He just released the visual for “Like I Can,” another gem off his amazing In The Lonely Hour debut.

Directed by Sophie Muller, a dressed up Smith steps out on the town with his equally dapper mates. They start off partaking in an Italian dinner before hitting the streets of New York City, including a stop by the Brooklyn Bridge. Watch Sam and his boys down shots, climb fire escapes and dance the night away. Watch the video below.

insurgent-movie-poster

A month after the studio released a teaser, the first full trailer for Insurgent has arrived. Shailene Woodley returns to play heroine Tris, but this time sporting her The Fault In Our Stars short ‘do.

Since the first film, Erudite leader Kate Winslet feels the heat of the uprising and hunts down the fugitives, specifically Tris. The two face off in several tense moments in the Divergent sequel.

The new installment introduces Naomi Watts as James’ mother, with Octavia Spencer playing a peaceful faction leader. Bradley Cooper’s love Suki Waterhouse and Daniel Dae Kim of Lost fame also join the cast. Returning faces include Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Zoe Kravitz, Jai Courtney, Mekhi Phifer, Ray Stevenson, and Maggie Q.

Insurgent hits theaters on March 20, 2015. Check out the trailer below. If you feel the film has a different feel from its predecessor perhaps it’s due to Robert Schwentke taking over directing duties from Neil Burger.

Movie Synopsis

THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.

Nicki Minaj Debuts ‘Only’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music
nicki-minaj-only-music-video

To coincide with the European and Australian release of The Pinkprint, Nicki Minaj premieres the official music video for “Only.” Minaj enlists a trio of hip-hop artists for the Dr. Luke-produced track. Drake, Lil’ Wayne and Chris Brown all make cameos, but I would’ve rather had more scenes of that buff stud shown in the first few seconds of the visual. Holy woofness!!!

Nicki keeps it relatively simple and avoids anything too controversial for the video. She wears revealing black outfits, mesmerizing Drake and Wayne with her curves while her army of tough-looking females put random men in their place.

Only” has so far only peaked at #27 on the Hot 100. Maybe this clip can help bolster its chart performance. Be sure to buy The Pinkprint when it hits stores next week in North America.

If you haven’t heard her collabos with Beyonce, Ariana Grande and Jessie Ware, be sure that you do. They’re dope. Check out Nicki’s latest clip below.

First, the purity ring came off. Then he admitted he’s no longer a virgin. This week, his character on Kingdom got a back alley blow job. And now, Nick Jonas tells Alexa Mag that he has a healthy sex life.

Is it me or is the 22-year-old musician becoming the biggest cock tease around? He’s the forbidden fruit that keeps getting shoved in our faces but can’t take a taste of his sweet nectar ;)

“As far as the sexuality goes, I think that just happened for me over time, I think sex is part of a healthy life. So I have tried to be, in my transition into adulthood, as honest with myself as possible with sex and sexuality and what it means to me so I can try to be as healthful as I can.”

In addition to flaunting his sex life, Jonas poses for a slick fashion editorial for NY Post’s Alexa Magazine. Photographer Randall Slavin snaps Jonas in stylish looks ranging from sharp suits to rugged leather ones. Check out more photos and quotes below.

On Having Sex To His Own Music

“No, absolutely not, you can’t do that. Or with [music from] other people you know. That’d be so uncomfortable.”

once-upon-a-time-trio-of-darkness

On its mid-season winter finale airing December 14, Once Upon A Time says goodbye to Elsa and her Frozen buddies. Personally, it’s about time the ABC show ices them out.

Coming into this season I was excited but after watching the first couple of weeks I lost interest and most of the episodes have been sitting on ice on my digital recording device. Dare I say, it was worse than the Peter Pan arc from last year. Hopefully, Executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis rebound with their new story arc.

A trio of evil familiar faces will make their debut this Sunday. Dubbed the Queens of Darkness, Maleficent (Kristin Bauer Van Straten), Ursula (Merrin Dungey) and Cruella de Vil (Victoria Smurfit) head over to Storybrooke to wreak havoc. Smurfit really looks the part, but I feel Dungey was miscast. Too bad they didn’t call on RuPaul to play the Little Mermaid villain.

Entertainment Weekly speaks with Horowitz and Kitsis about the second half of this season and shares a few exclusive pics. Head over to EW.com to read what they have in store for us, along with how the producers decide which beloved characters they’re going to use next.

Chris Evans and Evan Rachel Wood reprise their roles in the latest Gucci Guilty fragrance ad campaign. Frank Miller directs them in a film noir-inspired commercial using his signature comic book style.

If Hollywood ever makes another Sin City film, I suggest they convince Evans to appear in it. I didn’t think it was possible but the 33-year-old actor looks even hotter than he does wearing his Captain America costume. And that’s saying a lot.

Check out the latest ad below which features Friendly Fires and Bat For Lashes’ “Strangelove,” appropriately enough, the Guilty remix.
