If you were traveling to another planet last night, you might not know that Celine Dion won the most prestigious award of the night at the Billboard Music Awards, The Icon Award, honouring her for her amazing career that now spreads over 3 decades. With over 200 million albums sold worldwide and a permanent show in Vegas for over 10 years, Celine is still one of the most lucrative and popular singers on the planet. Being from Montreal myself, she is definitely my favorite since I’m a kid. Celine started her career at 12 years old in Montreal, and we all watch her grow to this Diva that she is now today.
At the BBMA, Celine also sang “Show Must Go On” from Freddie Mercury, another icon, a dramatic powerful rock ballad in which the singer makes reference to her belated husband. Everything was perfect about her performance. I watched it 5 times in a row. The dress, the voice, the orchestra, the acceptance speech and the emotion. You can see the performance below.
Celine also released today the first single from her upcoming french album “Encore Un Soir” written by Jean-Jacques Goldman, another beautiful and very emotional song that talks about love. You can listen to it below as well.
Good evening guys (From Barcelona…)
Hey guys, I’m going to Europe for 2 weeks from May 23rd to June 6th. First stop, Barcelona, I’ve never been so if you have suggestions, feel free to send them my way. Whether they are museums, bars, art galleries, restaurants, beaches I want to know what you recommend. While I’ll be gone I will continue posting here and on social media my itinerary throughout the gay life and culture of Barcelona. If you live in Barcelona, make sure to leave your username so that I can contact you for a coffee or a drink, I’d really like that!
Second stop will be Mykonos. Even though it is off-season, the weather in Mykonos is perfect in June. I don’t like too hot and it varies between 27-30 celsius which is ideal! I will also post my itinerary while I’m there, beaches, clubs, restaurants that I like, etc. I would also like to get your suggestions if you have some. I only know Super Paradise beach and the gay club Jackie-O by the water, but that’s about it so leave your suggestion in the comment section below! Thanks!
The Bear-Naked Chef is back with this first of 3, 10 minute episodes to kick his european culinary quest as he travels abroad to Madrid, Spain and prepare a popular and traditional plate called “Albóndigas En Salsa Española”, aka Meatballs in Spanish Sauce.
The sexy muscle bear Chef will show you step by step how these balls are made. I’ve got to say that I like to hear him pronounce the word “meatballs”, so sexy in his mouth! You will definitely want to watch him do the whole recipe and you might be a little bit horny because he wears nothing but his itty-bitty apron and gym socks.
Check out the video below and try the recipe!
In 1990, seven young male dancers joined Madonna on her most controversial world tour, her “Blonde Ambition” world tour. Their journey was captured in her rockumentary, “Truth or Dare.” As a self-proclaimed “mother” to her six gay dancers plus straight Oliver, Madonna used the film to make a stand on gay rights and freedom of expression. The dancers became paragons of pride, inspiring people all over the world to dare to be who you are.
Twenty-five years later, the dancers share their own stories about life during and after the tour. What does it really take to express yourself? Strike a Pose is a dramatic tale about overcoming shame and finding the courage to be who you are. In theatre May 19th. See the trailer below.
Pop music Superstar Prince has been found dead at his home in suburban Minneapolis. His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, told The Associated Press that the music icon was found dead at his home Thursday in Chanhassen.
The singer, songwriter, arranger and instrumentalist was widely acclaimed as one of the most inventive musicians of his era, drawing upon influences ranging from James Brown to the Beatles to Jimi Hendrix. The Minneapolis native broke through in the late 1970s with the hits “Wanna Be Your Lover” and soared over the following decade with such albums as “1999” and “Purple Rain.”
On Friday, Prince was released from the hospital and returned to his Minnesota home after making an emergency landing in Illinois. Prince has been battling the flu for several weeks, even canceling two shows in Atlanta last week. Those shows were pushed to Thursday, and, although still not feeling well, he performed anyway for a packed Fox Theatre crowd.
After boarding his private plane to fly home, the singer’s condition worsened, and the pilot made an unscheduled stop around 1 a.m. at Quad City International Airport in Moline. After receiving treatment, Prince was back on the plane three hours later.
Prince died at his estate in Carver County, Minn., on Thursday. The Carver County Sheriff’s Office had been investigating a death at the estate.
He will be missed!
