My Happy Homo Xmas Playlist

In: Music, Totally GAY!, Tyrell

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

Hey fellow homos. How’s everyone’s Christmas shopping getting along? Thankfully, Patrick and I completed a big chunk of our list yesterday afternoon. Getting out of the house to do a few holiday tasks definitely helped get me in the Christmas spirit, something I feel like I have been lacking in this year. If you are like me and need a little holiday pep, I’ve decided to compile a list of some of my favorite Christmas tracks to add to your playlist. Here we go. (Please note, this article is being written very tongue in cheek.) Enjoy!

Wham! – “Last Christmas”

This song is a must-have on your holiday homo playlist. It’s sure to be a crowd pleaser at any party and will make your spirits gay and bright! It doesn’t hurt that George Michael who’s on our team is the mastermind behind this Christmas tune that we all know and love. See more of my holiday favorites below.

As someone who’s not a card carrying member of Brit Nation, I can honestly give an unbiased opinion of her E! Documentary, I Am Britney Jean, which aired last night. Not only did I enjoy it, but dare I say the Britney Spears of yore is back.

The 32-year-old singer was charming, joyous, talkative, decisive and opinionated, while being that sweet Southern girl her fans first fell in love with years ago. Even on stage, she looked alive. Girlfriend was giving it her all during the dance rehearsals. She even gave herself whiplash. Definitely a huge step above from some her half-assed live routines in recent years. Welcome back, Brit. I miss this version of you.

Though Spears shared some personal moments with her family time during the two-hour show, it was mostly about pimping out her latest album and upcoming Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. The 100-minute show will feature 24 of her greatest hits including “…Baby One More Time,” “Slave 4 U,” “Toxic,” and newer singles “Work Bitch” and “Perfume.” Obviously she can’t include everything but I’m a little bummed that “Hold It Against Me,” “Everytime” and “Sometimes” aren’t on the set list.

“It’s kind of tough because the fans want a certain selection of songs and many of them want to hear the old hits. But then for me I have to keep it fresh to do the show so I have to incorporate some of the new stuff.” – Britney Spears

The set boasts a 360-degree media wall, which mimics a planetarium, and the decor will involve venus flytraps and disco balls. It’ll also feature feature a four-piece band and 14 backup dancers which includes SYTYCD’s Brandon Bryant.

Speaking of dancers, Britney and her choreographers, Squared Division, outdid themselves. I can’t decide which guy I’ll be focusing my eyes on when I check out her show in February. Expect a post highlighting all of Spears’ sexy men in the near future. Check out the setlist below, along with clips of Brit picking her dancers and rehearsing with them.

Shazam Reveals Most Tagged Songs & TV Shows Of 2013

I don’t know about you, but I feel Shazam is probably one of the best apps ever created. There is nothing more frustrating than hearing a song but not being able to remember the title or artist. Even worse, if you hear it on your favorite TV show and rack your brain trying to figure it out, but still come up empty-handed. Honestly, Shazam has saved me numerous headaches. I also love using it as a makeshift to-download list for songs I need to purchase. The service has been partially credited for Icona Pop’s success. Their hit “I Love It” went on to be Shazamed more than two millions times in the US after appearing on Girls.

In the past several years, Shazam’s activity has increased at an astronomical rate. In 2011, Adele was tops with 4 million Shazams. In 2012, five artists achieved more than five million tags. This year, 43 artists have achieved more than five million Shazams. The popular music tagging service revealed their annual list of most popular tags. Check out the lists below and see if your tagging contributed to the totals.

Britney Spears’ Scandalous Connections To ABC Drama

Before you jump to any conclusions. No, Britney Spears didn’t just book a guest spot on Scandal. However, with her recent “somewhat girls” word vomit and career worst opening bow for Britney Jean, she might consider hiring Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) to fix things. I’d give anything to see Olivia tell Brit, “It’s handled!!!” Knowing Brit, she’d be wondering handled what?!?!?

With the winter finale of Scandal airing tonight, I thought it was a perfect time to highlight Spears’ surprising connections with a couple of the cast members. First up is Guillermo Diaz who plays Huck. Before torturing people, he was somewhat of a savior. He rescues Brit in her “I Wanna Go” video while referencing his 90s stoner comedy, Half Baked.

The other connection is a tad more scandalous. For real. Apparently, Columbus Short aka Harrison was a professional dancer back in the day. He even choreographed her 2004 Onyx Hotel Tour before it was canceled due to a knee injury Brit sustained. Short also claims he had a brief fling with Brit while dancing for her. Speaking of dance, did you know he starred in the direct-to-video Save The Last Dance 2. If you recall, Kerry Washington appeared in the first one. Small world.

With all these connections, Brit is practically a Gladiator. I’m sure the “Perfume” singer has some skills Pope can utilize. After all, Brit’s music scares away Somali pirates. Check out videos below featuring Britney Jean with the Scandal guys.

Britney Jean Gives Spears Her Worst Opening

In: Donovan, Music
britney-jean-sales

First the good news. Britney Spears has the best-selling new album on this week’s Billboard Top 200. The bad news is that Britney Jean debuts at No. 4. Even worse, the 107,000 units sold represents the worst opening bow of the superstar’s career. Even her debut album, …Baby One More Time, sold more in 1999 with 121,000 units. Her previous two studio albums, Circus and Femme Fatale, sold 505,000 and 276,000 copies respectively.

With a Planet Hollywood Vegas residency beginning, the 32-year-old singer won’t have time to tour and promote her new album. The million dollar question is, should she cut her losses or go into overdrive to salvage this era? This bitch just needs to work harder, especially if she wants that Maserati or Lamborghini.

Before we get into the meat of the video, can we discuss the slab of juicy prime beef Britney Spears cozies up to? Yowzers. I think I might have to revisit my 2011 post on Brit’s Top 10 Hottest Music Boy Toys. Model Alexander Kjellevik is pretty dang fine. The scruff, the hair, the abs, it all works. It must’ve been hard work laying that blond head of hers on his ripped stomach. I digress.

Directed by frequent collaborator Joseph Khan, “Perfume” can easily pass as a fragrance ad for one of Spears’ many scents. Girlfriend spritzes herself in hopes that Kjellevik’s girlfriend, Cindy, smells it. I suppose she didn’t mark her territory enough because in the end, poor Brit is left alone. I haven’t seen her act this much since her acting tour de force in the 2002 opus, Crossroads ;) Overall it’s a great clip (albeit simple) for the underrated ballad. Check it out below.

VEVO Reveals The 10 Most Played Music Videos In 2013

In: Donovan, Music
2013-most-played-music-videos-vevo

Despite all the headlines and chart success, Miley Cyrus received no Grammy nominations. I guess all her antics scared off Academy voters. Here’s a small consolation prize for being snubbed.

VEVO recently released their annual list ranking the ten most played music videos of the year. In no shocker, Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” topped the list. After all, the clip generated 19.3 million views on its first day of release and was the fastest to be certified in VEVO’s history by reaching 100 million views within just six days. As of December 1, the much-spoofed clip stood tall with over 371 million views worldwide. Last year’s winner, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen notched 357 million clicks in 2012.

The most interesting part of the list is how a couple of leftovers from last year made the list. Both Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and will.i.am’s collabo with Britney landed in the Top 10. On the flip side, Katy Perry breaking the Top 5 is equally as impressive, given that “Roar” only premiered just in August. Check out below what other clips were extremely popular in 2013.

With just weeks before her heralded Las Vegas residency begins, Britney Spears made her official arrival at Planet Hollywood earlier this week. It wasn’t as extravagant as Shania Twain arriving on a horse, but there was plenty of fan fare. Lights, cameras, paparazzi, fans, you name it, it was there.

Naturally, the 32-year-old singer is in promotional overdrive to move ticket sales and also copies of her just-released album Britney Jean. She even hinted that she might retire after her two-year residency. Yeah, right. I smell that marketing ploy a mile away ;)

In other Brit-related news, she appears on InStyle magazine’s January cover looking quite lovely wearing a Dior couture gown. Photographer Michelangelo Di Battista snaps the singer for her most “candid interview ever.” Knowing how verbose Brit is, I wonder what classifies as “candid” for the publication. Right?

Spears also released a teaser for her latest single “Perfume.” It uses the official lyric video as the background with footage of the video itself incorporated in. Check it out below.
