GAY CLUB ICON KEVIN AVIANCE DOING WELL AFTER DOUBLE HIP SURGERY



I just wanted to give a heads up on Kevin Aviance, an icon within the gay community. Last year it was reported that after pop, dipping, spinning and pumping for our pleasure for years in heels, the singer/club icon had to undergo expensive double hip surgery. Here is what Early Ross Aviance revealed about Kevin's condition on his Facebook page:

Our sister Kevin Aviance & I just spoke on the phone. His hip surgery yesterday was a success & he's not in any irregular pain like before. Thanks to everyone for your PRAYERS, WISHES, & LOVE!!!

I'm just glad Kevin is finally doing okay, because we need Miss Thing to be read to be cunty next year at Pride and many Pride's from now.

CHRIS BROWN AND NICKI MINAJ LEAD BET AWARDS NOMINEES

Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown

They may not have received any love at the Bullshit Billboard Awards this past Sunday, but Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown may have reason to celebrate. Both were nominated six times each for a BET award. Chris is nominated in categories such as Best R&B/Pop Artist, Best Collaboration, and Video of the Year, while Nicki is nominated for Best Female Hip Hop Artist, Coca-Cola Viewers' Choice Award, and Best Group Member as a member of Young Money. Also nominated were Beyonce, Sam Smith, Lil Wayne, Big Sean and Usher.

Azealia Banks was also nominated for an award in the Best Female Hip Hop Artist category, but no surprise here she took to Twitter to criticize award shows as bogus (she was nominated alongside Nicki Minaj, DeJ Loaf, Iggy Azalea, Tink, and Trina).

WATCH THE THREE MINUTE TRAILER FOR SCREAM QUEENS



After weeks and weeks of little teasers, I can finally bring you a full trailer for the highly-anticipated new horror anthology series Scream Queens, the latest project from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck (American Horror Story). The series, which premieres in the fall on Fox stars Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, KeKe Palmer, Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas, Abigail Breslin, Niecy Nash, Diego Bonetta and Jamie Lee Curtis.

DANNY WOOD, DONNIE WAHLBERG AND JOEY MCINTIRE SHOW OFF ABS BACKSTAGE



I think this is the most fit I've ever seen any members of a boy/man band, and the good thing is they are all over the age of 40. So their bodies clearly put the sexless, smelly-looking eunuchs of One Direction to shame.

MADONNA UNDER FIRE FOR POSTING PHOTO OF A JEWISH AND MUSLIM MAN ABOUT TO KISS



Queen of controversy Madonna is under fire yet again, this time for posting a picture of a Jewish and Muslim man sharing a kiss. The image has sparked debate among fans who interpreted it as a comment on the Palestine conflict, as well as a statement on Islam’s attitude towards homosexuality.

After the singer received backlash for the post, she opted to delete the photo (I really wish she would have just stuck to her guns and kept up the photo), but by then the picture had already been shared all over social media.

I remember back in the day when she recorded Forbidden Love for Confession on a Dance Floor that I thought this would be a great concept for a music video, if her camp had the sense to release Forbidden Love as a single.

I know it is hard for some people to believe (especially Jewish and Muslim extremists), but there are gay men that are Jewish and Muslim. I just hope this opens up the opportunity for a conversation that needs to be had, and not just a ploy for Madonna to bring attention to her album that isn't doing to well on the Billboard charts.


TRAILER TRASH: MAZE RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS

dylan o'brien scorch trials

While I thought Maze Runner had a few scary moments, I really hope the sequel will be better, because the original film was just okay to me. I do love me some Dylan O'Brien, so with him being such a good actor I'm sure if the film turns out to be mediocre his performance will most likely sell the film for me.

Based on the novel by James Dashner, The Scorch Trials is directed by Wes Ball from a screenplay by T.S. Nowlin and stars Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Patricia Clarkson Rosa Salazar, Jacob Lofland, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen and Lili Taylor.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials will be in theatres on September 18.

JENNIFER LOPEZ PLAYS NEVER HAVE I EVER ON ELLEN



Since JLo can't go an hour without being booed up, it will be interesting  on the questions that Ellen asks what she has or hasn't done in a relationship. Usually Jennifer is very forthcoming in interviews about her past loves, so this game should be a good one.

WORLD PREMIERE VIDEO: TAYLOR SWIFT - BAD BLOOD

taylor swift bad blood 2

Taylor Swift premiered her highly-anticipated new music video for Bad Blood on Sunday during the dreadful Billboard Music Awards, and I have to admit, while I am not a fan of hers (she irks the shit out of me), the song is actually quite catchy. Everyone from Selena Gomez, Ellen Pompeo, Lena Dunham, Cara Delevigne, Cindy Crawford, Zendaya, Jessica Alba, GiGi Hadid, Mariska Hargitay (fun fact: Taylor has a cat named Detective Olivia Benson), and pretty much every actress in Hollywood appears in the video, which pays homage to films such as Tron, Kill Bill, The Fifth Element, Sin City, and too many other films to mention. Bad Blood is allegedly about a beef Taylor has with another female artist, and many have speculated the song may be about Katy Perry.

Check out the video, which was directed by Joseph Khan below...

Since JLo's movie career is pretty much in the toilet, and no one is really buying her albums, the pop superstar is gearing up for a residency in Vegas. Last week she stopped by Ellen to give everyone a taste of what you can expect should you buy a ticket to one of her shows.

JANET JACKSON ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM AND TOUR



It's official! After numerous blogs began to speculate that Janet Jackson would be releasing a new album this year (and a press release leaked that Janet wou, the pop icon herself officially spilled the T, and on her 49th birthday (which is today) no less. The singer did turn down a rumored residency in Vegas (Jennifer Lopez picking up her Vegas scraps instead), but has plans tour the world in promotion of the new album.

The news came via a video Jackson tweeted out with the hashtag #ConversationsInACafe, the record’s presumed title.
“I promised you’d hear it from my lips, and now you will,” Jackson said in the video, referencing a tweet she sent out last year to shut down speculation that an album was in the works. “This year: new music, new world tour, a new movement. I’ve been listening. Let’s keep the conversation going.”
No word on what the album sounds like, but with longtime producing partners Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis confirming a new Janet album, it's without a doubt they have put in some work on her new record. I've also been hearing that the new album will be Rhythm Nation for a new generation, but only time will tell if that's true once the album drops. I actually hope it will be  mixture of social commentary as well as hot, sexy uptempo dance tracks, which is what we've always come to love from our Janet.

Check out the announcement below...

LIL KIM TO STAR IN HER OWN REALITY SHOW



The original Queen Bee Lil Kim is set to invade your TV screens in HD, because the hip hop icon has just signed on for her own reality show.

Kim took to her YouTube page to announce the reality show, which is entitled "Lil Kim The Queen Bee Reality Show. The series will follow Kim as she balances being a new mom, working on her new album, her fashion endeavors, and cover her stake in the music industry as one of hip hop's most iconic and controversial rappers, since people seem to forget if it weren't for women like Kim, there would be no Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Eve, etc.

“It’s time for the Black Kardashian,” states Kim. “Anything I do, just has to be big and I’m gonna take you guys on that journey with me and I’m so excited about that.” 

I thought the "Black Kardashians" were The Braxtons (but with talent)? Anyway, we haven't seen Kim in reality TV form since she did her docu-series Countdown to Lockdown a few years back on BET where she was counting down the days before she headed off to jail. I think it's a great idea that she has signed on to do a reality show, because maybe it will help revive her dormant music career.

Check out the announcement below...




CIARA DEFENDS HER STATUS IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, SAYS SHE'S HAD HITS JUST AS BIG AS BEYONCE AND RIHANNA

Ciara-008

Ciara sat down with The Guardian to promote her sixth album Jackie, and when she was asked how come she's not as big a household name as Rihanna and Beyoncé, she responded by saying that she doesn't see her female contemporaries as competition and had to remind people she has had just as many hits as the ladies mentioned.

Here's an excerpt from the interview:

Despite her success – 2010’s Basic Instinct is the only one of her albums not to reach the US top five – she has never become a household name in the manner of Rihannaor Beyoncé. “You know what I think?” she asks, rhetorically. “Everything’s about timing. I’ve had records just as big as those artists, I’ve had No 1 songs around the world. My biggest competition is me.” That and her old label, perhaps. After Basic Instinct only reached No 44, she left LaFace/Jive,announcing on Facebook that they had not supported her enough. Her next album, Ciara, released on Epic, duly went to No 2. “There’s no doubt in my mind how high up this train can go,” she says calmly. “I faced those challenges. I don’t see myself beneath Beyoncé and Jay Z; I don’t see myself above them. I’m in my own world, hungry to grow.”
Ciara attributes any disconnect between herself and the music-buying public – the fact that she isn’t a household name – not to an inaccurate portrayal of her personality, but to her not making that personality plain enough. Hence her forthcoming appearance as a regular on NBC’s celebrity variety show I Can Do That. “Over the years, there was a perception I was trying to be too perfect.” She narrows her eyes. “I’m far from perfect.”

I think when Ciara came out with Goodies (which sold 3 million copies) she had a few really good hits. As a fan of hers I have to say while I dig her music, over the years she's started to fall further and further off of the listening radar. I actually thought her self-titled fifth album was her best yet, but due to her pregnancy she couldn't promote it properly. 

I do agree with the perception that she was trying to be perfect, because I got that vibe from her as well. I also got that she wasn't personable enough as an artist. There just seemed to be this wall she had up about herself that I have noticed over the years slowly started to dissipate.

Yes she's not as big as Beyoncé and Rihanna in the crossover pop world, but Ciara is successful in her own right. As for her new album it will take a while for it to grow on me, because it doesn't have as many of the uptempo tracks that we've come to love from CiCi. I have always said she is the black Britney Spears (minus the mental ticks), and if she hooked up with the right producers and I guess played the industry game like Bey and RiRi she'd probably be as big.
