When Carole King Met Supergirl

Tea For Two
l-r
Carole King & Melissa Benoist
Having appeared in the video for crooner Mike Clifford's current single, a terrific cover of Will You Love Me Tomorrow by Carole King. One needs no more explanation as to why this image from the WWW caught my eye. 

Or should I extrapolate? I shall because had this photo been merely of Ms. King I would not have really gone to the bother of posting it. It's also because it is of herself and Supergirl aka Melissa Benoist. Who portrays King on Broadway in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

While I find Ms. Benoist a quite engaging and talented young actress, I had no inkling she was this talented when Carole surprised her with this onstage duet. 

Get it Melissa, you go!

Greece Is The Word

I Think We're Alone Now...Not!
Tiffany Trump & Lindsay Lohan
Partying can make for strange bed fellows - like did you totally know that Lindsay Lohan is tight with First Daughter Tiffany Trump

Well fasten your seat belts kids, it's true! The two were seen hitting the town in Mykonos, ya know, in Greece. Where did they go?  Why the hottest club around Lohan Beach House, naturally. 

Lindsay shared a photo of the twosome on Instagram and deleted it mere hours after it was posted. Hmmmmmm... security reasons? Or???

Whatever it's too late, the pic landed on the WWW and will remain there forever. So it shall be and so it is, indeed.

Now where did I put that lemon?

Mulholland Drive


Last night I had the extreme pleasure of attending a screening of Mulholland Drive up on the roof top of The Montalban Theater in the heart of Hollywood. Thanks to Lynn Tejada from Green Galactic.

This is my second go at the movie space this summer the first was Sunset Blvd. How's that for irony two movies about Hollywood that are very much alike and I go see them both in the heart of the city they are about.

I love The Montalban! It's a perfect setting to view a movie during these wonderful summer nights. 

Here are some pix I got of my evening under the stars...

Cheers!

Super Saturday
Henry Cavill
It's the weekend and aren't you happy? Well nothing says good times like a tall glass of champagne and Henry Cavill aka Superman - so I guess that makes this a Super Saturday, no?

Henry is taking 5 from promoting Mission: Impossible - Fallout and what better way to go than an refreshing adult beverage?

At present I am at my computer having a sliced grapefruit and green tea. It's 5:41 am and too early for close encounters of the alcohol kind. But later, ya know, Saturday Night when I hit the screening of Mulholland Drive on the roof top of The Montalban Theater in Hollywood, well...it's time for some of their legendary Sangria with some Silencio to top it off for good measure.

Time to start getting up and at em' - Saturday is also my favorite Spin Class -

Ciao!

Freaky Friday

Don't Be A Drag, Just Be A Queen
Colton Haynes
Photo:
Tyler Shields
I have a confession to make, I am a fan of photographer Tyler Shields work - OK, maybe not such a big deal in the personal revelation arena as I am sure many people are. 

Also for some bizarre reason I find Colton Haynes hot. While I am sure some of you are scratching your collective heads going "Why is that bizarre?" trust, if you actually knew my overall taste in men (the key being around my age) then you would get it. There is always an exception to everything kids, don't ever think your life is one defined neat little package.

Thus these two interests guided me to this photo Tyler took of Colton, in drag.

One would think Colton would look great as a woman, since he be so purty as a guy. Well here's the thing Colton has cheek bones, and while that is associated as a thing of beauty for women, guess what? Most women don't have them. "Yep" we men pretty much stake the claim on a killer jawline, meaning that most of us aren't convincing in drag. I have great cheek bones and look like the ugliest woman ever when I cross dressed that one time in make-up camp.

Let this be your Freaky Friday tutorial - Mic Drop!

Hump Day & Chill

Wanna Chill With Me???
Tom Hopper
OK, I admit it. I have never heard of Tom Hopper until I caught a glimpse of him on my fave go to site for male skin, celebrity and otherwise: Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things.

I see Tom was Amy Schumer's co-star in I Feel Pretty - a movie that I have yet to see. He was also in Merlin, Game of Thrones... Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Well now that's impressive, well not as impressive as Tom's ripped abs and his bootylicious butt. Talk about bum cakes Hopper's got em'.

FYI - I wanna let you in on a little secret, I've got the 411 on where you can get an eyeful of Tom's booty. Just click on the link below it's time to Hump Day & Chill after all!!!

Just Because...Janet Jackson

All For You
Janet Jackson
Just Because we are part of a rhythm nation, Just Because it's all for you & Just Because she's Janet Jackson - Awwwwwwww sh!t I gave it up on the third Just Because - Ladies and Gentlemen here's Janet!

See Janet being quite the fashionista, See Janet filming her latest video under the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn, New York, See Janet, well looking at you...

I'm coming out of the closet, "Yes" minions I am a Janet Jackson fan. It all started in 1986 when the notorious JJ declared she was in Control. She then declared herself the leader of a Rhythm Nation I followed. Then she became simply Janet and damn that was one amazing ride! 

Although there were many great songs on her first name basis opus the one that really was my ultimate jam was Throb -

"I can feel your body
(Ooh baby)
Pressed against my body
(Ooh baby)
Wrap yourself around me
(Ooh baby)
Love to feel you throbbin

(Ooh baby)"



Save your judgement calls and move on - this is about the wonder of Janet. Janet was of her time and really amazing. I wish her the best moving forward. Her call to arms anthem Rhythm Nation is especially relevant right here, right now. 

"With music by our side
To break the color lines
Let's work together
To improve our way of life
Join voices in protest
To social injustice
A generation full of courage
Come forth with me
People of the world today
Are we looking for a better way of life
We are a part of the rhythm nation
People of the world unite
Strength in numbers we can get it right
One time

We are a part of the rhythm nation"

Monday Motivation

Zen
Anderson Cooper
This weeks Monday Motivation is brought to you by Anderson Cooper. "Yes" him sitting peacefully poolside is a reminder to us all to take the time for some self care.

What's do I mean by "self care" you say? Tending to ones mental and spiritual well being is as much a part of feeling good as is a hot and sweaty Spin Class or doing a few rounds of boxing on a punching bag. 

One also needs to appreciate the little things in life. The quiet times, to recharge and regroup.

Personally this is something I need to do more of than when I hit the mat in yoga once a week. One of my personal fave things to do is to take a walk and enjoy the moments of the things that I see along the way, whatever those may be.

Also starting the day of with a positive affirmation helps to set the tone for it. You'd be amazed how standing in a Superman pose to kick off your day really affects you.

So bend it like Anderson & Myself today and make your Monday magic!

Queen For A Day

Sea Gals
Nicole Kidman & Amber Heard
Or perhaps it should be Queens For A Day??? So here is a photo from Comic-Con in San Diego, CA that caught my eye - why? Because it shows Nicole Kidman adjacent to Amber Heard signing Aquaman stuff.

Why did I find this eye catching? Because I had no idea until I spied this photo that Nicole Kidman was in Aquaman, that's why.

"Yes" I realize the movie isn't called Queen Atlanna (Kidman's character in the opus) but usually you hear a bit more noise when Nic is going to appear in something on the big screen.

Moving on she and her co-star Heard (who I was aware was in the movie) who plays Mera are all smiles and look like they are having a blast meeting and greeting fans of the below sea level hero.

"Under the sea, Darling it's better, Down where it's wetter, Take it from me..."

Take A Ride On Your Disco Stick

Look! It's Linda Clifford...!!!

FOUR CLASSIC ALBUMS FROM R&B LEGEND and “FIRST LADY OF DISCO” LINDA CLIFFORD TO BE RELEASED ON AUGUST 24 BY BLIXA SOUNDS
 
Newly re-mastered editions of Linda Clifford’s classic hit-filled Curtom solo albums return on Blixa Sounds. Features bonus 7” single versions and 12” Disco Mixes of her chart-topping smashes produced by Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes.
Blixa Sounds keeps the music coming with series of re-mastered reissues. 
 
On August 24, Blixa Sounds, a new Los Angeles based label, will release four classic albums by American R&B and Disco Icon Linda Clifford, If My Friends Could See Me Now (1977), Let Me Be Your Woman (1979), Here’s My Love (1979), and I’m Yours (1980).
 
Linda Clifford emerged as a powerhouse vocalist during the 1970s, bridging pop, R&B, and disco with her phenomenal voice and electrifying stage presence. Her #1 Billboard disco hits, including “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “Runaway Love,” “Gypsy Lady,” “Red Light” (from the Grammy-nominated Fame soundtrack), “Shoot Your Best Shot,” and “It Don’t Hurt No More,” accompanied her American Music Award nomination for “Favorite Female Disco Artist” (1979). Her marathon version of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” even yielded a Top 20 hit in the U.K. Blixa Sounds celebrates Clifford’s white-hot streak from 1978-1980 with four albums originally released on Curtis Mayfield’s Curtom label, featuring productions by Mayfield, legendary Motown arranger Gil Askey, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame icon Isaac Hayes.
 
Currently based in Chicago, Linda Clifford is still spellbinding audiences with her solo performances and sold-out shows alongside Martha Wash, Evelyn “Champagne” King, and Norma Jean Wright as the First Ladies of Disco, recently climbing the Top 10 Billboard dance charts with a remix of “Show Some Love” (2015). However, If My Friends Could See Me Now, Let Me Be Your Woman, Here’s My Love, and I’m Yours show where it all started.
 
After years of singing jazz and releasing one-off singles, including a minor hit on the R&B singles chart with Mayfield's "(It's Gonna Be) A Long Winter" (1973) for Paramount Records, the Brooklyn-born singer made with her full-length Curtom debut with Linda (1977). "Curtis was such a poet," Clifford says. "He had a way with words that everyone could relate to. His poetry was so magnificent.”
 
If My Friends Could See Me Now, Clifford’s second Curtom album, propelled her to international success. The title track hailed from the Broadway musical Sweet Charity (1966). Clifford herself had even appeared in Bob Fosse's 1969 film version starring Shirley MacLaine years before completely recasting the song for the dance floor. “I had no idea that the song affected so many people the way that it affected me,” she says. “In spite of everyone saying, 'Oh it's disco,' it was not just disco. It was pop. It was R&B. It was dance. It was everywhere! You couldn't turn the TV on without hearing it being played at some sports event.”
 
Her recordings of "If My Friends Could See Me Now," "Gypsy Lady," and "Runaway Love" would all crown the summit of Billboard's disco chart for the entire month of May 1978. The album itself rocketed up the album charts, landing inside the R&B Top 10 and peaking at #22 on the Billboard 200. Accolades poured in from industry trades: Cashbox named Clifford "Top Female Vocalist," Billboard awarded her "Most Promising New Disco Artist of 1978," and Record World honored Clifford with "Best New Female Vocalist" and "Best Pop Album.”
 
The following year, Clifford’s double LP Let Me Be Your Woman arrived via Curtom’s partnership with RSO Records, home to the Bee Gees and the blockbuster soundtracks to Saturday Night Fever (1977) and Grease (1978). The album became Clifford’s second highest-charting album on the Billboard 200 (#26) with standout cuts like “Don’t Give It Up” (#15 R&B) and her sizzling, ten-minute cover of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” (#11 Disco). The latter tune landed in pop culture history when it helped ignite the aerobics phenomenon on Jane Fonda’s Workout Record (1982).
 
By the end of 1979, Clifford released another full-length set for Curtom/RSO, Here’s My Love. Produced by famed engineer Juergen Koppers (Donna Summer) and Philly soul legends Norman Harris & Ron Tyson, the album spawned Clifford’s eighth Top 40 R&B hit (“I Just Wanna”). Billboard proclaimed, “The range of Clifford’s style is shown to great advantage as she gets down to a funky beat, sings a sweet ballad and keeps feet dancing on hot disco tunes.”
 
After recording The Right Combination (1980) with Curtis Mayfield, Clifford sparked the Fame soundtrack with the #1 disco hit “Red Light,” also featured on her final Curtom/RSO set, I’m Yours. Written and produced by Isaac Hayes, I’m Yours brought Clifford back to the top with “Shoot Your Best Shot.” Coupled with several television guest spots on Soul Train and American Bandstand, including two hosting stints on The Midnight Special (NBC), Clifford regularly performed at the nation's hottest discotheques. "I worked Studio 54 so many times, it was like a second home to me," she says. "The people there treated me so well. The crowd always seemed to enjoy my show and I always had a good time with them. It was the place."
 
Beyond Clifford’s successful tenure with Curtom, she signed with Capitol Records and released I’ll Keep On Loving You (1982). The album generated another #1 single (“Don’t Come Crying to Me”) and featured “All the Man That I Need,” later popularized by Whitney Houston. She recorded two albums on the Chicago-based Red Label, Sneakin’ Out (1984) and My Heart’s On Fire (1985), and continued releasing a series of Top 20 dance hits throughout the ‘90s and ‘00s while establishing herself as a successful jingle singer for top brands like McDonald’s, Maybelline, and Tropicana. In 2005, she was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Chicago Music Awards and received the GEMA Foundation’s “Golden Mic Award” in 2014 for her contributions to music. James Arena also profiled Clifford in his best-selling book First Ladies of Disco (2013).
 
40 years after Linda Clifford began ascending the pop, disco, and soul charts, Blixa Sounds has remastered If My Friends Could See Me Now, Let Me Be Your Woman, Here’s My Love, and I’m Yours from the original master tapes. Each album is packaged in a lavish gatefold sleeve and features several bonus tracks making their appearance on CD for the first time ever. With these four releases, Blixa Sounds tells the definitive story of why Linda Clifford remains a disco and soul icon to all generations of music lovers.

Here We Go Again!

Dancing Queens
Cher & Meryl Streep
"Yes" today marks the opening of the sequel no one was asking for Mama Mia! Here We Go Again. This being stated how can you resist Cher & Meryl Streep together again? (the first time was in Silkwood circa 1983) -

Now if I was a betting man I would have to say this is a casting only a studio executive with their eye on the box office could have made. I mean Cher & Meryl doing ABBA in the ultimate Mom (and Gay) friendly film?! It's a no brainer...

I will be sitting this one out. I really didn't care for the first one. As Meryl explained that she took the movie mainly to embarrass her children, I say "mission accomplished."

This does not mean I don't enjoy seeing the two hit the red carpet together to promote the venture as seen here at the London premiere. 

Hey, I may be a tough audience when it comes to the content of what actually watch, but I still love the glamour and cache these two have together.

It's time for me to get the Mama Mia outta here and get on with my Friday...ciao!

With the heatwave an increasing need for a refreshing adult beverage is in order. What is more refreshing than a margarita, I ask you? "Yep" I figured you wouldn't have a contradictory response because margaritas rule!

Thus for this Hump Day & Chill not only do I bring you the divine drink called a margarita, I also bestow upon you images of Neil Patrick Harris on his vacation in Mexico imbibing them, shirtless and otherwise.

Now hows THAT for a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Hump Day & Chill?

Slower Than Usual

"Smoke Your Cigarette Slower Than Usual"
Ariel Beesley
Photo:
Michael Shinafelt
"I fell in love with you last night, Wish I could take you home tonight
Oh, you dance so, so sweetly" - Ariel Beesley "Slower Than Usual"

Yesterday an amazing talent who I personally know, Ariel Beesley released a video for her hot, hot, hot single "Slower Than Usual" on Buzzbands.la -


I am so proud of this young woman who I once watched the movie Shrek (yeah, the first one) with at the age of...why don't you take today, Slower Than Usual?


Check out the bomb ass video after the jump!




Here is the 411 via Buzzbands.la
In 2016, San Fernando Valley-born singer/model Ariel Beesley was at a songwriting camp hosted by Aviici in Stockholm, Sweden. She met someone special but, as the story often goes, it wasn’t the right time to start something. What she did have was a moment. One night they were outside smoking and as she watched the cigarette burn, she wished she could make that moment last forever. And so the catchy pre-chorus to her debut single came to her, “smoke your cigarette slower than usual.” Beesley co-wrote the song with fellow camp-attendees Linnea Sodahl and Andreas Roos, and had it produced by Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, The Killers).
The video was co-directed with her dad, director Matt Earl Beesley, and they tried to recreate the flavor of MTV videos she loved growing up. “When I write a song, I think about what the scene would be, the world in which the song would live,” explains Beesley. “I have always loved everything about the ’80s, especially the music videos. ‘Why is Debbie Harry performing in a room with no audience while the band jams behind her on telephone chords?’ I asked myself. Or ‘Why is Flock of Seagulls playing in a room of mirrors while two twins walk around?’ I loved it. For the ‘Slower Than Usual’ music video, I wanted to draw from those influences but make them modern.”

Just Because...James Van Der Beek

If I Was You, I'd Wanna Be Me Too
James Van Der Beek

Just Because It's Monday and I need motivation, Just Because there is nothing like waking up to a broken couch and Just Because damn he's fine, it's James Van Der Beek!

You know the eternally sensitive Dawson from the creek? While I never watched the shown (I suppose I broke some sort of a commandment by not doing so) - I am truly captivated by how manly and hot grown up James is in comparison to the younger version of himself.

See James all smiles leaving a taping of Live With Kelly and Ryan in NYC. Swoon at his masculine jawline with a touch of scruff. Dream that your body will one day look as good as his at 41 and beyond.

Yep, that Van Der Beek really did reinvent himself, his latest project Pose on FX really caught the media and public by surprise. 

Now about that cup of coffee I so desperately need right here right now...

Hot Tub Time Machine???

Fly On The Wall
Hailey Baldwin & Justin Bieber
This rather curious photo of Justin Bieber & Fiancee Hailey Baldwin in a passionate lip lock recently graced Bieber's Instagram.

What's so curious about an engaged couple making out you may ask? Well clearly there was a third party involved for the moment to be captured. Also whoever the individual was, they were soaking in the tub with the two lovebirds - right across from them I might add.

Talk about being a third wheel! Unless there was some sort of way to bend the laws of physics that enabled the Biebs to somehow capture the moment by utilizing the hot tub as a time machine...well you get the picture, and obviously somebody else did too.

So the real question of the day is, who took this steamy photo and how did the individual feel about being that close in proximity to the intimate moment?

Whoever it was my bet is it was a guy that shot it, think about it, but not too much.

Mic Drop!

Silly Saturday

Mahna, Mahna
Kylie Minogue & Some Friends
Today I am feeling light and breezy, "No" definitely not easy and breezy...

Thus this image of Pop Superstar Kylie Minogue with The Muppets is exactly what one needs to take in on a Silly Saturday. I feel silly, oh so silly I feel silly and witty and bright. And I pity anyone who isn't me today!

Kylie took some time out to be a special guest on The Muppets Take The 02 in London, England recently and it looks like she had a blast. Thus in return I have put you all on blast that she is now Queen of the Muppets - Ha! Kidding, or am I.

Don't you love a good secret? Of course you do. Especially when it's Kylie Minogue's .

The tone has been set for the day, enjoy it!

Time to hit the shower and get my ride on!

Happy Friday the 13th... "Ki, ki, ki, ma, ma, ma"

Hump Day & Chill

You Want Some Of This???
Paul Rudd
Let's cut to the Hump Day & Chill chase shall we? With Ant Man and the Wasp being the number one attraction at the box office that means Paul Rudd is everywhere. It also reminds me of how I have crushed on him in many a movie. He is a combination of offbeat good looks and humor that, well sort of make up the perfect unconventional hunk.

"Yes" I immediately surfed over to Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things to see if he had done an un-coverage on Mr. Rudd. Shocker, not a shocker, he had and feels the same way about Rudd that I do. Judging by the popularity of the Ant Man movies we are not alone in our crush. 

Now that I've got that out of my system, while I am sure Ant Man and Ant Man and the Wasp are quite entertaining I never saw the first, and don't intend on seeing the second. File it under NMT aka Not My Thing.

Rudd's film The Shape of Things with Rachel Weisz is MT aka My Thing

Now that you have an idea of what my jam is it's time to Hump Day & Chill to Paul by clicking on the link below - have fun and don't do anything I wouldn't do!
