Kylie Minogue Shares Her Romantic Music Playlist

In: Donovan, Music
kylie-minogue-playlist-favorite-tracks

After all this time, I finally know why I love Kylie Minogue. We apparently have the same taste in music. The 45-year-old Aussie compiled an extremely listenable playlist titled “Back To Mine” for Rdio.com. “Lovers of the world unite for this exclusive Rdio playlist of romantic gems handpicked by Kylie herself,” writes the website.

Her picks include classic 90s R&B tracks from Janet Jackson, TLC and surprisingly Hi-Five. The out-of-nowhere latter selection really pleases me. The boy band’s “I Like the Way (The Kissing Game)” is one of my favorite tracks from that decade.

The “Sexercize” chanteuse also earns some hipster cred with cuts from Grimes, Sky Ferreira and Solange. Minogue even picked a hit from Johnny Depp’s former love, Vanessa Paradis. She recorded the campy track, “Joe Le Taxi,” when she was only 14-years-old. Check out Kylie’s other selections below and weigh in on which of them are your favorites afterward.

Beyonce surprised everyone tonight with the release of a brand new self-titled album! The visual album features 14 new tracks accompanied by 17 videos. A few of us from Homorazzi had the pleasure of seeing her perform here in Vancouver a couple weeks ago and after witnessing her epic performance, it makes me wonder how she had the time to secretly work on all of this?

I’ve only skimmed through the album (which is her 5th) and have definitely liked what I’ve heard so far. Surprisingly, “Grown Woman” didn’t make it on the album. That being said, the music video for the song is included as a bonus video. Of the new tracks, the only really upbeat song is “Blow” but it’s clear that she wasn’t going for a dance-type album with this anyone.

The album features collaborations with Jay Z, Frank Ocean, Drake,and even her own daughter, Blue Ivy. A couple songs like I like right off the bat are “Flawless” and “Pretty Hurts”. I can’t wait to dive in and actually go through each song and video. Speaking of videos, Bey hooked up with high-profile directors including Terry Richardson, Melina Matsouka, Jonas Akerlund, Jake Nava and Hype Williams.

First and foremost, Happy National Coming Out Day (NCOD) everyone. How do you plan on celebrating this gay holiday? Come out again? LOL. I kid.

The date of October 11 was chosen because it was the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights where half a million people participated. In 1998, Robert Eichberg, a psychologist from New Mexico, and Jean O’Leary, an openly gay political leader from Los Angeles, made the holiday official and founded NCOD.

To mark the 25th anniversary, the Human Rights Campaign looks back at some of the trailblazing coming out moments in American media that raised the profile of LGBT Americans and sparked important dialogue about the fight for equality. Some of the famous LGBT celebrities featured in the clip include Ricky Martin, Jason Collins, Frank Ocean, Adam Lambert, Lance Bass and naturally Ellen DeGeneres.

If you’re curious to read a few of our respective coming out stories, we’ve compiled them here for you. Simply click on the author’s name to learn more about each Homorazzi.com writer. In the meantime, check out HRC’s commemorative montage below.

During last night’s GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco, Adam Lambert was honored with the organization’s prestigious Davidson/Valentini Award. An award presented to an out LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality for the LGBT community. The American Idol runner-up became the first out LGBT artist to reach number one on the Billboard 200 with the release of his 2012 album Trespassing. Mel B was on hand to present the award to Glambert.

The 31-year-old also picked up another award during the event. He tied with Frank Ocean in the category of Outstanding Musical Artist category. Other honorees include Archie Comics‘ Kevin Keller and the San Francisco Giants. The baseball team is the first professional sports organization honored by GLAAD. They were the first ever professional sports team to host an HIV/AIDS benefit game in 1994 and first major league sports team to record a video for the It Gets Better project.

Joining in on the festivities were Jinkx Monsoon (RuPaul’s Drag Race); Rex Lee (Suburgatory); Jaymes Vaughn, James Davis (The Amazing Race); Kyle Richards (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills); Tamala Jones (Castle); Guillermo Diaz (Scandal) and Jessica Clark (True Blood) to name a few. Check out Adam’s speech below along with the rest of the winners.

Out Magazine Reveals Their Power 50 List

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

OUT magazine just revealed their annual Power 50 list. Who doesn’t love a good list, right? For seven years, the publication has ranked powerful and prestigious gay men and women who have tremendous influence. The list is compiled of Hollywood power players, publishing magnates, political figures, web entrepreneurs and everything in between.

Once again, Apple CEO Tim Cook ranked No. 1 on the list. Along with increasing the company’s bottom line, he gets the hottest seats in town. Cook sat next to Michelle Obama at the State of the Union address.

If you read Homorazzi regularly, you know I have the biggest hard-on for Andy Cohen and his army of Housewives. Guess what? My silver fox crush made the list. See where he placed along with a few of my favorites below. It’s kinda funny how Clive Davis made the list now that he’s newly out. Side note: Aren’t the photo illustrations great. They were all created by Mario Wagner.

While Fifth Harmony are hard at work in the studio (as shown above) on their “getting ready to go out” album, they recently set aside some time to do a cover of Frank Ocean‘s “Thinkin Bout You” song and have uploaded it onto YouTube. This is their first upload on their YouTube account, and I’m certain they’re will be more soon.

In the following video, the girls (Ally Brooke, 19, Camila Cabello, 15, Normani Hamilton, 16, Dinah Hansen, 15, and Lauren Jauregui, 16 — stand and sing beautifully together in a piano version of the song. Prior to posting the video, the group teased the video with the following tweet: ““Hey #Harmonizers we have a little surprise for you… tweet #5HSurprise if you want to know!”

Watch the amazing cover of “Thinkin Bout You’ by Fifth Harmony below. I can’t wait to hear what their album ends up sounding like!

Was Frank Ocean Arrested For Oral Sex?

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

Hope 2013 is treating you better than it is Frank Ocean? The R&B crooner was arrested while on vacation in California’s Eastern Sierra Nevada near Mammoth Lake on New Year’s Eve roughly at 4:30 pm. Despite some salacious rumors (yazmar.com) that he was apprehended due to engaging in some lewd acts, the truth is far less scandalous.

Contrary to rumors that he was swerving on the highway due to being “serviced,” the 25-year-old singer was stopped for speeding. He was driving more than 90 mph in a 65 mph zone in his black BMW. In his defense, whenever I drive Brian’s BMW instead of my Jeep Rubicon, it’s sometimes hard to tell how fast you’re going. It’s so smooth.

In addition to speeding, Ocean whose legal name is Christopher Edwin Breaux allegedly had a small bag of marijuana on him. Smoking a doobie on NYE. Nothing wrong with that, right? Someone has a little more street cred now ;) If that wasn’t enough, Frank was also cited for driving with a suspended driver’s license and having tinted windows. When it rains, it pours. LOL. Reportedly, the following pic was taken by Ocean while riding in the backseat of the cop car.

Last night, the 2013 Grammy Nominations concert took place, revealing this year’s nominees and inadvertently, those who surprisingly weren’t nominated. Leading the pack this year were Fun., Jay-Z, Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean, and Kanye West who scored six nominations each. Following their lead were The Black Keys and Miguel with five nods. Vocal powerhouse, Kelly Clarkson was treated to four nominations, Taylor Swift got three, and Canada’s own Carly Rae Jepsen, got two nominations.

Both Justin Bieber & Nicki Minaj were both snubbed by the Grammys this year. Nicki Minaj was nominated for “Best Rap Album” last year, but moving into the pop category this year, she didn’t make the cut. I’m genuinely surprise that Bieber didn’t get nominated for his Believe album – I thought the album was quite strong myself. His manager Scooter Braun took to Twitter to voice his opinion. After first congratulating Carly Rae Jepsen, he said, “this time there wont be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one… He later added, “the hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. the kid delivered. Huge succesful album, sold out tour, and won people over…” In another tweet, he insisted, “…this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with.

In any event, he didn’t get nominated but the giant list of people below did. The 55th annual Grammy Awards air Sunday, February 10, on CBS. Check out the nominees below. As a side note, Donovan had previously listed his “Best New Artist” predictions, getting two out of the thirteen options listed correct. I’ve made note of the two he got right underneath that category. In his poll, post people picked Carly Rae Jepsen, but she actually wasn’t nominated in that category.
