Leona Lewis Teases New Music On Facebook

In: Donovan, Music
leona-lewis-new-music

If Leona Lewis gets her Christmas wish, 2015 will see her long overdue comeback become a reality. After leaving her longtime label Syco and Simon Cowell due to ‘creative differences,’ the 29-year-old singer found a new home over at Island Records. I don’t blame her. They definitely mismanaged the hot mess that was Glassheart.

With a new label, hopefully Lewis can recapture her magic and live up to her potential. It’s a shame the X Factor alum hasn’t reached the same heights of her massive hit “Bleeding Love” again. She’s far too talented to quietly fade into the abyss of one hit wonders.

Armed with just a piano and another musician, Leona shared a preview via Facebook of what’s hopefully to come. She sounds fantastic on the powerful track allegedly titled “Fire.” She’s giving me Emeli Sande vibes with a touch of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep.” Give it a listen below.

Facebook 2014 Year In Review

Earlier this week, Facebook released their annual list revealing the most popular media of 2014 on the social networking site. Game of Thrones took top honors in television while Frozen and “Happy” by Pharrell Williams earned top placement on the movie and songs Top 10 list respectively.

The category on their annual review that intrigued me most was their compilation of the moments we shared in 2014 that affected, shocked and entertained us all. Serious fare such as the ebola virus outbreak and conflict in Gaza along with lighthearted moments like the 2014 World Cup and the viral sensation, the ice bucket challenge, earned a slot.

Find out below what topped their Top 10 Topics of the Year list, along with the remainder of the Top 10 lists for movies, television, songs and celebrities.

After facing fierce backlash over it’s “real name policy” which seemed to target the LGBT community, specifically drag queens, Facebook is backing down from its original stance. The social networking site announced that it will loosen restrictions for the drag community. Some believe Facebook finally caved in after numerous people jumped ship and signed up for new social media destination, Ello. Whatever the real reason, chalk up a win for our team.

“I want to apologize to the affected community of drag queens, drag kings, transgender, and extensive community of our friends, neighbors, and members of the LGBT community for the hardship that we’ve put you through in dealing with your Facebook accounts over the past few weeks,” wrote Facebook VP of Product Chris Cox

According to Cox, Facebook processes thousands of fake name reports every week. They’re working on technical solutions to make sure that nobody has their name changed unless they want it to be changed and to help better differentiate between fake profiles and authentic ones. Read Cox’s entire post below.

Despite meeting with members of San Francisco’s drag community, the social networking website plans to delete all the profiles of self-described drag queens because they do not comply with their ‘real name’ policy. Naturally, this isn’t sitting well.

IMHO, it doesn’t make sense and wreaks of discrimination. I can think of a handful of people I know who don’t use their legal names on Facebook that aren’t drag queens. And don’t even get me started on all those folks who create fake profiles and add people like crazy. Get rid of those spammers first, Mark Zuckerberg.

Sister Roma, a drag performer and 20-year member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence was one of those who met with Facebook. Read her lengthy response about FB’s ridiculous decision. Be sure to weigh in afterward.

Does anyone else think that the puppet looks more like Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame than Ed Sheeran?

Although Sheeran makes an appearance in the “Sing” music video, the main focus is on Muppet Ed. It’s hard to imagine the English singer-songwriter go on a major bender. Even Ed thinks so himself. His furry version drunkenly roams from a karaoke bar in Chinatown to a strip club and everything else in between. It all culminates with both Ed and Muppet Ed waking up in some seedy hotel together. I have to give credit to Sheeran’s team for coming up with an entertaining and imaginative visual.

Sing” is off his sophomore effort titled x. It hits stores on June 23. Check out the “Sing” music clip below which debuted on Facebook today. I also added Sheeran’s duet of “All Of The Stars” featuring Voice finalist Christina Grimmie from earlier this week. Such an amazing performance.

The Grindr Best Of 2013 Awards

Award season is officially underway! Even Grindr is getting in on the action. They recently released their best of 2013 year end list. From gay icon of the year (Neil Patrick Harris) to best comeback of the year (Netflix), users of the ubiquitous hookup app made their voice heard on a multitude of categories.

2013 was a banner year of celebrities coming out. Not surprisingly with all the headlines he generated, Wentworth Miller earned Grindr’s best coming out story. Solid choice. I was lucky enough to witness Miller’s first appearance after coming out at the HRC Gala Dinner in Seattle.

Along with revealing the best of the best in the past year, Grindr also weighed in on what they expect will be big and make headlines in 2014. Find out below who they think the next celebrity to come out is and what will become obsolete.

Though I often come across as holier-than-thou with my articles about guys in relationships having never been one and therefore being free from persecution, this time I’m ranting discussing the topic of friends once they’re OUT of their “forever love”. Once the other shoe drops, the other guy cheats, they both cheat, they realize they’re both bottoms, they find out the other one isn’t really as circumcised as they originally thought, WHATEVER; the point is, your friend is broken up and now he needs and wants you- his friend- like he never needed you before. Actually, let me set that straight, he needs you now like he absolutely didn’t need you in his life at all a hot minute earlier when he was “in love” and couldn’t care less about his friends because focus was laser pointed on loverboy and friendships be damned. Have you ever had a friend who dropped you and “the gang” the second he got into a relationship and the exact moment that all-consuming passion ended he boomeranged right back into your lives as if nothing had changed? Well, I call bullshit.

Get your comments ready and roarin’ to go on this one. Yes, we’ll cover the possible jealousy from my angle. Yes, I’ll allow that maybe I’m not being the BEST friend ever. But, I’m sure as hell also going to look at how crappy this feels to friends who repeatedly get this done to them and question the motive of these boomerangers who seem to expect it both ways and honestly get pretty freakin’ nettled when you call them on it. Often my articles are “subtly” about a recent exchange or interaction with someone close, but this one is just out of year in and out eye rolling annoyance with comrades who have complained alongside me about this selfish action and the turn around and do it themselves. Before you freak: this departure/return routine is NOT performed by all people who get into relationship. In fact, I RARELY see it in friends who get into truly long lasting and healthy relationships. Instead, I write to those repeat offenders who think your friends are just sitting by the phone waiting for the second you have time for them: we’re not. And, you’re kind of acting like a bag of dicks.

Justin Bieber No Longer Top Dog On YouTube

In: Donovan, Music

First he loses Selena Gomez and now this. The Biebs certainly isn’t having a banner year. The 19-year-old Canadian singer just lost the crown as the most-viewed artist on YouTube. Oh well, at least Justin Bieber still reigns supreme on Twitter. He became the first artist to lure in over 40 million followers. With that being said, there are reports that almost half of his followers are spam and inactive accounts. Poor guy. Find out who the new king, or should I say queen, of YouTube is below.
