Speaking of Kylie Minogue guest-judging on Project Runway All Stars, the Impossible Princess has unleashed the video for her new song Flower, which shows off her sensual side. Until Kylie drops her next proper dance/pop album (in 2013), we'll have to keep our ears peeled for the classics when she releases The Abbey Road Sessions in November.
We are just a few short weeks away from the season 10 finale of Project: Runway and already Lifetime has revealed the cast for the second season of Project: Runway - All Stars. Designer Isaac Mizrahi and Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman return as judges, and Joanna Coles also returns as the mentor. Rumors have been confirmed that Angela Lindvall has been replaced as the host by supermodel Carolyn Murphy. Celebrity guest judges will include Katie Holmes, Kylie Minogue, Stacy Keibler, Liv Tyler, Gretchen Mol, Diane von Furstenberg, Jason Wu, Margherita Missoni, Charlotte Ronson, Rafe Totengco and Elie Tahari.
While the current list of returning contestants doesn't completely excite me (except for Andrae, Wendy, Casanova, Joshua McKinley and Anthony Ryan), I'm having a harder time trying to decide who actually deserves to win this upcoming season. Everybody knows Mondo was robbed on his season which is why he deserved to win the first all-stars season. Based on this list, season 2 looks like it's not going to be an easy one.
The second all-stars season doesn't premiere until October 25, but check to see if some of your faves made it below...
•Season 1 - Wendy Pepper
• Season 2 - Andrae Gonzalo
• Season 3 - Kayne Gillaspie
• Season 3 - Uli Herzner
• Season 5 - Suede Baum
• Season 6 - Althea Harper
• Season 7 - Emilio Sosa
• Season 8 - Casanova
• Season 8 - Ivy Higa
• Season 8 - Peach Carr
• Season 9 - Anthony Ryan Auld
• Season 9 - Joshua McKinley
• Season 9 - Laura Kathleen
Marina knows that the way to any person's visual heart is to have a bunch of hot models getting wet in a music video. The singer has unleashed her brand spankin' new video for Heartbreaker and might I say it will definitely get the party started.
“I had 100 per cent creative control over this video,” Marina explained to The Sun. “I was like OK, lets get six Calvin Klein models and put them in the shower and I’ll standing the middle in PVC.”
Well I always say simplicity is always key and it definitely works for this video. I will admit I didn't jump on the Welsh singer's music bandwagon until she came out with Primadonna, but after this song and it's accompanying video, I'm a full fledged fan.
The Dr. Luke-produced Heartbreaker is off her sophomore album Electra Heart. Check out the video below...
So yesterday that loud mouth dingbat Ann Coulter stopped by The View to promote another one of her ridiculously inaccurate books, and in her book "Mugged" she claims that Republicans aren't racist, President Obama has abandoned black people and that the best thing to happen to black folks was the OJ trail verdict. Ann's comments were so preposterous it set Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters off on her ass faster than a starving dog looking for a meaty bone.
I was in high school when the OJ trial was going on, and when the verdict came down to "not guilty" I remember seeing plenty of black people excited that he didn't go to jail and white people were pissed the fuck off. This of course was around the time when police brutality was rampant, especially with that ashole mayor Rudy Giuliani bringing a hard crackdown on New York, as well as the strong issues pertaining to the L.A. riots. Racism has always existed in America, but didn't really show it's teeth until President Obama got into office. Republicans asking him numerous times to show his birth certificate, and Newt referring to him as the "food stamp president" didn't help matters either. Ann also needs to realize that the OJ trail happened in the late 90's not the 70's or 80's.
Ann also tries to insinuate that Republicans care about black people, which they did back in the 50's and 60's to which there were a lot of black folks who were Republicans. That ship has long sailed. The truth is neither side is really doing anything to bring change in the world, and while I feel that President Obama is taking a softball approach to issues pertaining the black community, the Republicans aren't fairing any better.
So the question is do we vote for some flip-flopping asshole who I have no idea what his true policies are that would rather have black folks clean his house than work beside him in the White House, or do we vote for someone who is slightly better than the Republican nominee who may or may not get the economy back on track and not set the gay, women's and civil rights movement back 60 years?
Clearly Ann is thirsty for attention and people like The View make it worse by having her on. Although I rather have someone like Ann saying how she feels about things that make me unconfortable to my face rather than someone who will smile in my face and say something different behind my back. At least then I know where you stand.
Earlier this week rumors circulated that Nicki Minaj would be getting her own reality show on E! Well the rumor is half-true. The "reality series" will actually be a three-part special on the network, which will air in November around the same time her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up comes out.
This will be Nicki's second docu-special, since she did one for MTV called My Time Now back in 2010. While the MTV special focused on her laying down tracks in the studio and going a bit into her upbringing, the special will show never-before-seen footage of Nicki in her personal and professional life. So expect some carefully edited behind-the-scenes footage of her at the Idol auditions, promoting her new perfume, recording tracks for the new re-release and a milli-second shot of whoever is pounding her alarm.
After releasing two video teasers, Christina Aguilera has finally released the full music video for Your Body, and it does not disappoint. In the video she portrays a slutty version of Dexter, donning a series of disguises as she leaves a trail of dead lovers in her wake. Madonna's sex may have been a killer, but Xtina gives it to her men in such a way that would make Xenia Onatopp green with envy. I'm just glad to see Dirrrty era Xtina is back and on the prowl.
Xtina's new album Lotus will be out in November
While TV networks have yet to catch on to a few well-written gay-themed shows that are doing quite well online that weren't created by Ryan Murphy (Anacostia, The Outs, Where The Bears Are to name a few), I have been hungry for a new gay series featuring men of color since Logo prematurely canceled Noah's Arc. Well I just discovered a brand new scripted series called Skin Deep, which about six gay men in Atlanta who deal with the struggles of love, career, culture, and sexuality that often plague the community. The show so far is only a 10-minute pilot, but what writer/creator/producer David Summers hopes to do is shop it around to various producers and networks such as HBO, Showtime, AMC, FX, Logo, and any other network looking to pick up the show.
I say take it everywhere except Logo, because just like Noah's Arc, that sorry excuse for a network is not willing to let a bunch of black gays be the ones to bring their network the big ratings unless you walk around in a wig and a dress. It's been a long time since I've seen a show that has got me going with some decent acting, unapologetic sex scenes and good writing (like my faves Noah's Arc and Queer As Folk) and here's hoping that Skin Deep gives me exactly what I need - drama, sex, and more drama. Personally I say just make it as a web series, raise the money on Kickstarter and when you have a shitload of Youtube or for more explicit content Vimeo viewers, the networks will come along.

We already know that season four of The Voice will feature Usher and Shakira sitting in for Cee Lo and Christina Aguilera while they promote their upcoming new albums. Now comes word that since the singing show is doing well in the ratings (over 11 million every week up against Monday Night Football), NBC has greenlit the show for two more seasons. Cee Lo and Xtina will be back in their signature high chairs for the fifth season.
Oh lord kill me now! As if this colorful heifer shitting all over the upcoming season of American Idol isn't enough, now it looks like Nicki Garbaj is looking to sell what's left of her soul to the E! network. Now comes word that the highest paid minstrel show in entertainment is set to star in her own ratched reality show on the network that the Kuntrashians built.
According to Perez Hilton, the show is currently shooting, but E! has not officially announced the show as a part of their upcoming line up.
When Perez asked about the project at her in-store signing, Nicki would not confirm, but she did hint of things to come. “I thought I’d never do something like that and I’m still considering, but I find that the more people see is the more they understand and the more they like you.”
“If you only have such one-dimensional things to go off of, like rumors and stuff on blogs, then you kinda never get to know the artist, and when you pull them in your world, they see you as a real person and they understand everything. I’m not running away from it anymore.”
Since Nicki comes across like Lil Wayne's and Baby's money-making streetwalker, I guess she feels people need to get to know the other side of her outside all the nigger nonsense, since her February release Pink Friday - Roman Reloaded was a huge flop and is planning to re-release the album in November and call it Pink Friday…Roman Reloaded Re-Up is due in November.
The pop artist, who had complaints from fans that she had removed herself away from her hip hop roots and has gone too pop does promise that the new album, which I think already has 22 tracks on it will feature six more and will not sound like "Starships."
“It’s more my mixtape feel,” she said of the re-release, which will feature five to six new songs including “The Boys” with Cassie.
Azealia Banks' debut album Broke With Expensive Taste doesn't come out until 2013, but the Harlem MC has been dropping new music videos and keeping her name in the spotlight on a frequent level as of late. The black and white video is simple and to the point, showing Azealia strolling around her New York hometown and dancing on a rooftop in a cowboy hat, a black top and denim pants with suspenders.
In other Azealia music news, her new single “Esta Noche” may be catching fire, but don't get too attached to it because there's some drama surrounding the song. Apparently the producer of the track Munchi has sounded the alarm to keep people from purchasing the song on iTunes, saying that Banks is using his beat without permission. After the shit hit the fan, she offered him $25,000 and a public apology, but he refused her offer.
“good luck being a dickriding, trackstealing, sorry excuse for a artist,” he tweeted. Have fun with the fame – it’ll get back at ya.”
On that note, check out the video for Luxury below...
Even though we've had a few half-assed tributes done in honor of the late Whitney Houston, it looks like she will finally get the love and acknowledgement she deserves. In honor of La Houston's upcoming Greatest Hits album, CBS is planning to do a tribute concert for the late singer. So far Usher, R. Kelly and Jennifer Hudson are the only two that have signed on for the project, which will be taped on October 11 at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE and air on CBS in November. The show, titled “We Will Always Love You: A GRAMMY Salute to Whitney Houston” will air sometime in November and the greatest hits album I Will Always Love You – The Best of Whitney Houston, featuring the unreleased R. Kelly duet “I Look to You” and a brand new track called Never Give Up is due on November 13. Sorry, but if Chaka Khan, the cast of R&B Divas and Brandy aren't included in this show, there will be hell to pay!
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that with all the drama currently surrounding his personal life, this video couldn't have come out at a better time for Chris. Don't Judge Me is the fifth single to be released from Chris' latest album Fortune which is in stores now.
Check out the video which he co-directed with Colin Tilley below...

Yesterday The Obamas stopped by The View for the umteenth time to talk about their marriage, how they raise their daughters, and of course the burning questions surrounding the Middle East in-fighting, our flailing economy, bringing home our troops and the slow jobs market.
So Conan O' Brien let Elizabeth Hasselbeck have it on his show last night, saying she made a fool of herself by questioning Obama's presidential record. "Who the hell’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck? She won a reality show. She didn’t even win! She was like — fifth!"
Personally I don't see why anyone is surprised by the stupidity that comes out of Elizabeth's mouth. Her role on The View is to play the conservative republican who is short on facts and long on getting riled up over the stupidest shit. Her job was to ask the stupid questions to President Obama and she gave exactly what her duty implies.
In the words of the late, great Whitney Houston during her infamous Wendy Williams radio interview, "lord have I been waiting for this day!" After what seemed like forever, episode five of The Outs has finally been released. The latest episode takes a realistic and compassionate look at longevity, fidelity, and temptation in relationships.
If you are just now discovering The Outs, I'll even be nice and post the previous four episodes so that you can catch up (or refresh your memory).
Madonna may have written the book on how to use controversy to make millions and sell records, but according to BBC Radio 1 gay DJ Scott Mill, Madonna is not cool enough to get radio play on their station.
Here is what the influential DJ told PinkNews:
"I don't think we play Madonna anymore and if you ask a 17-year-old about her, they go 'don't care'... it's a sign of the times, things change, it's a generational thing. I like Madonna -- does a 17-year-old? Probably not at the top of their list. And that's horrible, but that is the way it is... and also youth audiences are so fickle in what they like and what they don't like, and they're quite opinionated, you just have got to keep on top of that."
While BBC does play the best dance music (unlike our predominantly owned ClearChannel stations here), is Madonna no longer cool enough to get radio play? If this was a U.S. DJ making this claim I would say who the hell listens to the radio, but they actually play some cutting-edge dance music overseas so I can't really go in like I want to. I will say based on the various singles Madonna's camp has released off MDNA, he does have a point that she's not cool - only because the album's singles that have been released by far are not her best work. Gang Bang, I'm Addicted or Love Spent are the closest we get to cutting-edge dance music from her, and those songs should have been released instead of the ridiculous Give Me All Your Luvin' and the dated Girl Gone Wild. But the time Turn Up The Radio (which was the catchiest dance song she's released off this era) was released, radio and their ADD promotion had pretty much moved on and so had most of the listening public.
I also do agree the times have changed, and what Madonna needs to do at this point (if she continues to drop new music) is focus on releasing music for her die-hard fans who spend their life savings to see her multiple times in concert instead of trying to go after the youth market. if the kids want to jump on the MDNA bandwagon then fine. But Madonna has been in the game for over three decades and with her track record she doesn't need to prove anything to anybody.
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't seen the season finale of The L.A. Complex, don't read further. SPOILER ALERT: During the two-part season finale of The L.A. Complex, after pulling the plug on his father (who had a stroke) and getting blackmailed by a wannabe rapper named Infinite who wound up getting his hands on a hard drive containing Kaldrick and then-producer Tariq in an intimate embrace, the closeted rapper pulled a Frank Ocean and outed himself on his blog:
"And when I finally found someone that I thought I could love and love me back, it made me hurt them... I have wanted to die because I could not be who I wanted to be. Who you wanted me to be. But I couldn't be... None of these lies I told made me stronger. None of the secrets I kept made me happier. My name is Sean Duggan. AKA Kaldrick King. AKA The King of California. I'm gay."
Although I love all the intertwining stories on The L.A. Complex, Kaldrick's story really hits close to home, especially being someone who is an artist, gay and non-white who understands that a mainstream rapper has a long road ahead of him being the only rapper in "thug drag" who will have to deal with lots of interviews focusing on his sexuality and the homophobia that exists in the urban community. Should the CW bring the Canadian import back for a third season, I really want to see where they will take this story, since The L.A. Complex is the closest portrayal of people struggling to make it in the entertainment industry as we'll get without it being a reality show.
Check out all of Kaldrick's scenes from the two-part season finale below...

Diamonds are most definitely a girl's best friend, because Rihanna has unleashed the official first single from her upcoming seventh album.
The song was written by Australian singer/songwriter Sia and produced by Stargate and Benny Blanco, and while I'm sure people were expecting a hard-hitting dance track like We Found Love or Where Have You Been, or something edgy like Cockiness, what I love about Diamonds and Rihanna is that she is one of the few mainstream chicks who is willing to take musical risks with every album she releases. I'll even go on the record to say this is the best she's sounded vocally.
Check out Diamonds below...
As the teams are slowly starting to assemble on The Voice, singer Christina Aguilera has unleashed a second teaser of her forthcoming new music video for Your Body.
In the video, Xtina is giving us trailer trash realness in some colorful hair extentions and loads of makeup making out with a hot guy in his car that would have Snooki green with fashion envy.
No word when the actual video comes out (probably sometime next week), but I do know that her new album Lotus arrives on November 13.
Check out the second clip below...
One of my favorite up and coming synth pop bands Garçon Garçon, who I had the distinct pleasure of hanging out with a few weeks ago at their Westgay concert performed this past weekend at the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco. During their set they decided to do a cover of fellow Aussie and one of my favorite pop divas Kylie Minogue's hit Slow. I actually hope someone from Kylie's team hears this mix and she performs it on her next tour.
I'm still obsessing over Dawn Richard's excellent EP Armor On, and now the former Dirty Money diva has unleashed a brand new track called 86, which is the first single off her solo debut Goldenheart.
“For ”86,’ my producer Drew and I really went back to the basics,” the singer told Interview. “I also grew up listening to Prince, Genesis, Cyndi [Lauper], Peter Gabriel, and Phil Collins, which you hear a lot of in ’86.’ Their sound resonated in my life and my childhood, so, it’s really in a sense the beginning of my story.”
“’86’ is really the most naked single I’ve ever had,” she explained. “’86’ is actually a slang term—it means to get rid of something. For me, I’ve put up so many walls that I forgot if I was going to do this, that I can’t play the victim, I have to play the survivor. The song’s about ridding yourself of all those barriers so that you can be free and fight for love. That’s what everything I do now is about. The fight for love—what I love, and that’s the music.”
You can definitely hear some Prince influence in the song, and I definitely felt a little bit of 80's nostalgia listening to it. The more music I hear from Dawn it becomes apparent that not only is she the future of R&B, but she is immensely talented and underrated. There is so much focus on these mediocre pop stars being a slave to the studio heads, that Dawn is bringing it both musically and visually better than any pop artist out right now.
Goldenheart will be in stores on October 16. Take a listen to the Druski-produced track below...
The housewives over at Bravo aren't the only reality stars releasing music. Basketball Wives: LA star Jackie Christie is now trying to add singer to her resume, and let's just say she's no Kim Zolciak. Hell, she's not even Sheree (who is a boo nobody wants to check). All I have to say is that after listening to this mess Jackie needs to stick to being a psychotic bi-polar backstabber on VH1 and leave the singing to the professionals. I couldn't even take her when she decided in Monday's episode that she wanted to renew her 18th wedding anniversary as an homage to the LGBT community, not realizing that PROP 8 is the very reason gays in California can't get married.
I say everyboy toast to this being another shitty track by another irrelevant reality star.
Anyways, take a listen to this mess of a track below...
To promote their first album of new material in eleven years, No Doubt stopped by Ellen on Tuesday to perform two songs. One their hot new track Looking Hot and an oldie but goodie Spiderwebs. I just watched a brand new E! Hollywood Special with the band yesterday and I have to say I'm so glad to have them back together doing what they do best.
Push And Shove is in stores now.
Check out the performances below...
Chris Brown's personal life may be overshadowing his music career at the moment, but that hasn't stopped him from pushing forward on the live music front. Although his new album Fortune debuted at #1, sales wise it's a commercial flop. While it would be wise to keep Chris busy on the road and off social media websites, Breezy's camp has unleashed some dates for his upcoming Carpe Diem World Tour. So far only the European dates have been released, but for those of you who love you some Chris Brown I will keep you posted on the North American dates and beyond once they are released.

Speaking of Alicia Keys, the singer has collaborated with Miguel on his song Where's The Fun In Forever, which is off his upcoming sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream. Miguel actually wrote the song in Jamaica for Alicia's upcoming album Girl On Fire and produced it with Pop & Oak, but when the song didn't make it on the record he wound up keeping it for himself.
“I’ll never forget the moment we were under the stars with nothing but the sound of the ocean all around us,” he told SoulCulture TV. “I’ve never felt so attached to a song that I’ve written for another artist like this song, so I was really, really happy to find out that she wasn’t going to use it and she was gracious enough to let us keep it. It’s one of my favorite songs on the album.”
Miguel's new album will be in stores on October 2. Take a listen to the track below...
Remember back a few years ago during the Element of Freedom era Alicia Keys shot a music video for Put It In A Love Song with Beyonce that was shot in Brazil? I even remember posting stills from the video on this here blog so it was apparent that there was a video that was supposed to come out. Soon after there was no longer mention of the video and I completely forgot about it...until now.
Finally Alicia has broken her silence to Essence Magazine as to why the video was shelved:
Ohhh man! Y’all aren’t going to leave me alone about that! Sometimes with creative things [it] all comes together and it’s (makes perfection kissing noise) and sometimes things almost come together and it’s better to just leave it. So we love that song. We had a ball shooting the video. It just so happens that the whole thing, for some reason or another, didn’t quite come together so we just decided to leave it. And that’s what happened.
So basically the idea was great until reality hit and they had to shoot the music video, which most likely was a hot ass mess. I still think they should have released it anyway and left it up to the fans to decide whether or not it was a good video, because at the end of the day it was money wasted.
Usher got to tell his side to Oprah last week, and now his ex-wife Tameka Foster is ready to speak her piece. Tameka, who recently lost her 11-year-old son in a jet ski accident spoke to Entertainment Tonight of all places (which means they'll stretch this interview out for six weeks) and addressed the report that Usher slept with her best friend who was a bridesmaid in their wedding. She also said that while she felt betrayed by the cheateration, she's not surprised that any woman (or as I say a man - I've heard stories) could be seduced by Usher's charm. Check out some of what she told Nancy O' Dell in the video below...
I have always said that Usher is a talented performer, but has a shady personality. I also don't think he should be entirely at fault for their marriage crumbling. Tameka knew what she was getting herself into when she met him, especially since she was his stylist. I should also point out that Tameka is trying to overturn the court agreement that granted Usher full custody of their two sons, especially since she discovered that Usher's attorney, Ivory Brown, along with the law firm reportedly threw an election fundraiser for Fulton County Superior Court Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane in 2008. The campaign contribution report shows that Brown's firm raised $1,278 for Judge Lane in March 2008. So I would not be surpised that their little fundraiser worked in usher's favor to buy his children away from his ex-wife (something Oprah failed to elaborate on in their interview). Regardless of what may have happened between them, ain't no good gonna come to Usher until he does right by his kids because there's nothing worse than a man taking his kids from their mother unless there is evidence that she's a psychotic bitch and besides the bitter court battle, I've never heard anything Tameka has done that would give alarm to her having shared custody.

For those who are not in the know, the ball scene is dominated by the black gay scene where they combine fierce dancing called voguing to a hot bitch track. This world has been explored in the 1991 documentary Paris Is Burning and most recently in the film Leave It On The Floor.
In the movie musical, a young man named Bradley (Ephraim Sykes) is kicked out of his home by his mother when she discovers gay porn on his computer. Alone and with nowhere to go, Bradley stumbles into a gay club, where he meets a group of kids who battle other houses in the L.A. ball scene.
Openly gay director Sheldon Larry is talking about the film (which will soon be released on DVD), and while he hired Beyoncé’s creative director Kim Burse and choreographer Frank Gatson to bring real voguing into the film, the director is throwing shade at Madonna, saying that she ripped off the black gay ball scene to create her classic Vogue.
“Most of the kids in the ball world are runaways and throwaways,” says the 53-year-old. “They’ve been tossed out by their family because they are gay or transgender. They find each other on the street and they connect in the club. And every six or seven weeks, they stage a ball and compete in different category such as Voguing.”
And Larry says the ball scene is where Madonna stole the idea for her legendary 90's hit Vogue:
“I used to see Madonna at these balls,” he recalls. “Her song Vogue was taken out of this world and so was the dance. In this film, I didn’t want to rip them off, as I felt Madonna had in the past. I wanted to put these kids centre-stage and celebrate who they are by bringing positivity to the culture as a whole.”
I loved Leave It On The Floor and I believe that everyone who is gay or struggling with their sexuality needs to see this film, as well as Paris Is Burning. As for Madonna ripping off the black gay scene to create Vogue, I don't get that claim at all. The video and the song comes across as an homage to the culture, not exactly a rip-off. Unlike a certain pop star out today with Born This Way sounding too similar to Express Yourself, I saw Vogue as more of an homage to the underground gay scene rather than a blatant rip-off. I know when I was a gay kid growing up in Brooklyn I had no idea what a ball was, ore that any other gay kids existed until I saw her video. I wound up meeting a young latino gay boy in my high school who was out, proud and vogued openly. He was definitely an inspiration and no one fucked with him. The ball scene is about more than dancing and feeling fabulous for a day and winning a trophy. It's about a bunch of kids who come together and become their own family.
I don't know maybe my opinion of this is biased because Vogue is such a classic, and Madonna brought the underground black gay ball scene into the mainstream. if you guys have a different opinion on this, feel free to sound off below.
Leave It On The Floor is out on DVD September 24. For more information visit www.ballmusical.com
