It’s a busy week for Rihanna right now, currently on her 777 tour with tons of press along with her, including our good friend and Homorazzi cast member, Jonny Staub who is there on behalf of The Beat. Prior to departing, she was on Ellen where DeGeneres was talking to her lady parts.
Today, one of her singles from her Unapologetic album has leaked and it’s the duet with Chris Brown called, “Nobody’s Business“. There continues to be a lot of backlash and a lot of criticism for their continued friendship (or maybe even friends with benefits) in addition to the fact they have collaborated once again. Regardless, Rihanna is doing it anyway and essentially feels that it’s “Nobody’s Business,” as the track implies.
I hate to say it, but the song is good and has a bit of a Michael Jackson feel to it. Of course the song didn’t (or doesn’t) have to include Brown to be good, but clearly Rihanna is embracing the controversy and sending out a message. Feel free to listen to it (or not listen to it) below.
Thanks to the countless Tweets and Facebook updates this morning courtesy of Rich, Tommy, Patrick et al, I learned our own very Jonny Staub has made the Top 100 cut for “Regis & Kelly’s Men of Radio Co-Host For a Day Search“. WOO HOO. What a way to start off a week. It probably shouldn’t have come as a surprise, considering Jonny is one of the best radio DJs in Vancouver. He masterfully plays the hits and serves juicy entertainment gossip during the mid-day time slot over at The Beat 94.5 FM.
Now thanks to his legions of radio listeners and a few of us nominating him, he stands a good chance of making this dream come to fruition. Though voting doesn’t begin til January 10, 2011, you can start spreading the news of Jonny’s quest to sit beside Kelly Ripa on the popular daytime talk show, by going to the search’s official website and tweeting it or by sharing it on your Facebook.
Last night, Myself, Donovan, Brian, Jonny, and his boyfriend Kodie (both pictured above with Cyndi Lauper), went to the PNE here in Vancouver to check out Cyndi Lauper’s Memphis Blues concert. The place was full, a mixture of fans, young and old came out to see her in her crazy bright red mop-like hair.
This lady is still as amazing as she’s ever been. Her voice was absolutely phenominal and sided from all the uplifting blues music she performed, she also treated us with “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” “Time After Time,” and “True Colors”. She even talked about The Apprentice and the reason why she did the show was to draw attention to equality and equal rights for gays, through the “Give A Damn Campaign,” she pioneered. The crowd of course cheered to this.
But that was not the most memorable moment of the concert for me. When she stopped the concert midway through a song…that was unforgettable.
MTV is searching for their next reality show. They’ve asked people from coast to coast to submit their stories and videos of why they feel they’d make an interesting online reality show. Well, we figured our journey so far has been an interesting one, and there’s much more to come.
A group of gays start a website called Homorazzi.com – Where Homos Judge Everything. From celebrity interviews to red carpet events, watch their journey unfold as they try and make it into something big. Will Patrick and Donovan be able to mix business with pleasure? Will love and friendships last, or will their be casualties along the way?

Summer is just around the corner, and with warm weather and BBQ’s also comes the return of Summer Reality TV. Monday nights are now OWNED by the ABC dating show The Bachelorette. Ali Fedotowsky, this year’s new “single lady looking for love” is in the midst of dwindling down 24 men to just one.
I actually prefer the Bachelorette to The Bachelor for one reason. I always picture myself in the chick’s heals, having 24 men (48 eyeballs) on me. They’re single and successful and they want ME to love THEM. They are willing to pull out all the stops (and chairs at fine dining restaurants). It is them leading the conversations, trying to make me laugh. I just get to be pretty and sit there- starfish style. Lazy? Yes. 100%. While I know it’s far fetched, a boy can dream from time to time, can’t he? LOL.
Anyway, Ali must have been distracted…or possibly a bit dumb on Monday night because I feel as though she may have dropped the ball this sandwich.While my boyfriend Kodie is in love with Jesse, and we both agree that douchey “Dean McDermott” look-alike Craig M. deserved the boot, I was sad to see Vancouver’s Chris Hasek -Watt go home.Mind you, he made a splash in the opening episode- the first to arrive via limo, with a sweet smile and charming demeanor. I liked his style and charisma. Plus, who doesn’t want to root for the local/hometown contestant?
So why didn’t he make it further? What did he really think of Ali? And was all that drama between “Weatherman” Jonathan and Craig M TV drama or actually real? I had a chance to meet up with Chris to get down to the bottom of things when I invited him onto my radio show on The Beat 94.5. Enjoy!
Tommy is not only a famous promoter, he’s also the face behind the make up when his alter ego SYREN hits the stage. Blessed with a kind heart, and a mouth that not only mimic lyrics, it also speaks the truth constantly!
Before Tommy and I started our one on one, we decided to grab some dinner…drive thru style!
And don’t forget- you get to be the judge…did Tommy LIP SYNC FOR HIS LIFE???
Hey hey hey!
Well, Nic wrote about this already and now Jonny and I took the reigns and saddled up the man himself Mr Peter Breeze. As opposed to the standard interviews, we wanted to spice it up a bit…so we threw him in our ever popular SIDE DISH!
In this episode of Side Dish, we’ve got host Jonny, along with Patrick, Redd, and Tommy, discussing the upcoming Vancouver Olympics, American Idol, Heidi Montag’s Surgeries, and more. The four of us congregate in Jonny’s kitchen once again to discuss some of the hot topics of the day.
The Olympics are nine days away now and we discuss what some of our plans are for the celebrations and sporting events that are heading our way. And, there have been several guest judges this season on American Idol. Find out what we think about these Idol visitors. What is your opinion on these judges? Lastly, Heidi Montag….(unless she’s changed her name, along with every other physical feature on her body).. does she look good or not? How far is too far?
Oh, and why does Jonny’s dog have a blue stripe?! Find out in this episode of Side Dish!
