'The Sing-Off's' winners, Committed, on the future: 'We're going to sing our little hearts out'

20 December 2010 10:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

After four nights of competition on "The Sing-Off," six church boys from Huntsville, Alabama sang their way to a Season 2 win in Monday's (Dec. 20) finale. 

Zap2it was at the live taping and we spoke with Committed just moments after host and executive producer, Nick Lachey, announced their win.

"We don't believe it," Committed's Alain "Tommy" Gervais tells Zap2it. "The confetti flew everywhere and we're like, 'what?' Tears. All the hard work, man. We didn't know we were going to be here, but we're here now. Thanks to him [as he points up]."

Committed took the competition by performing some of pop and R&B's greatest hits, including a rousing Usher medley on Night 3, despite the fact that they've never performed secular music before "The Sing-Off."

"A lot of people were shocked," Maurice Staple says of their winning renditions of popular music. "Because they didn't know we could pull it off. At the same time, »

Gay Men Who Came Out in 2010

15 December 2010 8:47 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

2010 may well have been a tipping point for gay public figures and the closet. The generally great reception celebrities have lately received for pro-actively coming out has got to be encouraging.

At the same time, the old rules of discretion and secrecy that could generally be counted on in the mainstream media and the entertainment industry seem to have completely eroded. Closeted gay celebrities just can't depend on the press or their industry peers to keep their secrets any longer. No closet is airtight, and staying in one these days leaves you highly vulnerable to rumor and innuendo. Or worse. Just ask an alleged friend of Carrie Fisher.

So arguably, in 2010 the risks of the celebrity closet have became patently greater than the rewards.

Two major stars did the math and chose to get on the honest gay bus this year, declaring themselves well-adjusted and fully content gay men. Ricky Martin »

Happy Hour: Sara Bareilles Is Not Gonna Write You A Love Song

18 November 2010 11:10 AM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

The latest celebrity in a long list of names that has sat down with BestWeekEver.tv’s “Happy Hour” is Sara Bareilles, pianist, song-writer, and all around charming lady. You have 100 percent definitely caught yourself singing her first hit song “Love Songs” at some point in your existence, and if you’ve heard any of the tracks off of her latest release Kaleidoscope Heart, we can guarantee you’ve sung along with those too. “King of Anything,” her latest radio smash hit, is as catchy and poppy as anything that has ever been written. Ms. Bareilles was kind enough to stop by our Bwe.tv offices for a talk about the important things. Mainly, Maroon 5′s Adam Levine being hot as, having the #1 album on Itunes, and why her songs are riddled with revenge. Why are all these men wronging Sara Bereilles? We find out.

Strange Powers: Genius on Film

26 October 2010 10:37 AM, PDT | TribecaFilm.com | See recent Tribeca Film news »

Stephin Merritt is a hilariously unhappy little man in a hat who spends all day sitting in a gay bar, writing songs. He is also, quite possibly, a songwriting genius; able to bring the swooning melody and lyrical bite of a Cole Porter or Irving Berlin, updating it with a modern, arch sensibility that is completely Merritt's own. He has been playing with his band, The Magnetic Fields, and more importantly, his main collaborator/longtime best friend Claudia Gonson, for nearly twenty years now, and their shining artistic statement (so far) has been the instant classic album 69 Love Songs (1999), a three disc epic of sixty-nine brilliant songs about love, spanning the range of life, from heartbreak to ecstacy, with song titles like "Papa Was a Rodeo," "Punk Love," "Absolutely Cuckoo," "Your Love is Like Jazz," "The Luckiest Guy on the Lower East Side," and much, much more.

Top 50 Favorite Gay Films

20 September 2010 4:40 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

A few weeks ago we asked readers to submit up to five of their favorite movies in our third annual favorite gay film poll. We wanted to see which older gay films have timeless appeal and which recent gay films you judged important enough to register in the rankings.

After voting closed we sorted through the nearly 15,000 nominations (representing over 500 individual titles) to identify your top fifty favorite gay films.

Tabulating this data is actually a bit harder than it sounds. For instance, do you know how many different ways our readers can type/abbreviate "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert?" We counted about a dozen!

But we're not complaining, because the list that resulted this year is actually rather interesting.

Nine new films made their way into the rankings, and five of these are of very recent vintage. This represents a strong showing for current queer cinema. »

Tyler Coates shares my favorite personal anecdote post of this past week. Yay, Parent Trap.

Peel Slowly offers up several examples of movies recreating paintings. Neat stuff.

Material Girl Yes, it's true. Madonna's firstborn is now a (fashion) blogger. She loves all things 80s apparently like 4realz. Believe it or not I threw a first birthday party for Lourdes (aka Lola) in 1997 with my roomie at the time who was also a Madonna man. Our apartment was packed -- anything Madonna themed you know -- and we gave all the donations to a local children's hospital. So, see, one can use celebrity obsessive powers for good.

Frank Zappa: Greasy Love Songs

18 June 2010 2:30 AM, PDT | Pastemagazine.com | See recent PasteMagazine news »

An iconoclast kicks back with the sounds of his ‘50s adolescence Ever contrary, Frank Zappa released Cruising with Ruben & the Jets, a vigorous ode to the doo-wop and R&B of his youth, in 1968, when the boundaries of rock were being stretched by the likes of the Beatles, Hendrix and Zappa’s own Mothers of Invention. Greasy Love Songs unearths that highly entertaining album, presented here in the “original 1968 vinyl stereo mix,” along with alternate versions and related ephemera. Leading a cast that includes crooning lead singer Ray Collins and bassist Roy Estrada (pre-Little Feat), Zappa celebrates “cretin simplicity,” »

Otis Taylor: Clovis People Vol. 3

27 May 2010 2:30 AM, PDT | Pastemagazine.com | See recent PasteMagazine news »

Bluesmith preaches with more than his words Otis Taylor is one of our most vital bluesmen, but his best stuff doesn’t pack an immediate wallop so much as it sidles up and gets you tapping your foot. With Clovis People Vol. 3 (don’t look for 1 or 2), he mostly scraps the lighter flourishes of 2009’s Pentatonic Wars and Love Songs and returns to his day job of using grimy blues to catalog the skeletons in society’s closet. With subjects like school shootings and pointed tracks like “Babies Don’t Lie,” Taylor gives special attention here to the innocence of children, »

Cannes Tweets/Treats: Young Hollywood Edition

19 May 2010 5:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With Cannes's final weekend approaching people are probably leaving town. At least that's the way it happens at other festivals. The only thing exciting left (unless there's a late breaking hit or polarizing cause) is the awards and the first ever Queer Palm which could go a few different ways. But here's a few more tweets and eye candy treats for you.

Dominic Cooper = sex? | Ryan & Michelle are now dating

The Beautiful People

@onthecroisette "Dominic Cooper is provoking pansexual heatwaves in my row."

@snooptom "Pas d'Araki pour moi, je resterai sur le Dolan, "une éphémère vacuité addictive" / 20 ans, 2 films en un an, 2 Cannes, je te hais, Bravo!"

@AwardsDaily "Am always amazed by the perfect symetry of some actors' faces. Ryan Gosling is so blindingly good looking. Michelle Williams too."

@guylodge "Exclusive Cannes fashion report: Mike Leigh favours red-soled Campers with yellow socks. You heard it here first."

Underground Film Links: May 16, 2010

16 May 2010 6:00 AM, PDT | Underground Film Journal | See recent Underground Film Journal news »

We’re going to start off with links to several film still galleries, which seemed to be all the rage this week:

Filmmaker Phil Solomon put up a quartet of B&W film stills from his 2002 Psalm III: “Night of the Meek” in anticipation of a new screening. Enter the very colorful mirror world of Harry Smith via 7 film stills found by Dinca. Making Light of It has a selection of screen captures from Brakhage’s Love Songs, plus scans from Emmett Williams’ experimental poem Sweethearts. Bob Moricz put up a single still of the legendary — and his personal mentor — George Kuchar from Moricz’s own film Brainbox. Bonus: A still of actor Jesse Stanowski, whose face you’ll never see again in film, from Palace of Stains. Not underground, but Candlelight Stories has a link to an awesome Ultraman painted art gallery featuring work from 1965 to 1972. Ok, that’s it for the galleries. »

The Best Frank Sinatra Moments On 'American Idol'

4 May 2010 10:35 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

After making a concerted effort to remain current, "American Idol" turns to the past this week with a tribute to Frank Sinatra. Modern day crooner Harry Connick, Jr. serves as the mentor and guide through Frank's world. It's not the first time the "American Idol" contestants will try to channel some Rat Pack vibes, as a handful of competitors have tackled tunes and the eighth season featured an entire week devoted to the Rat Pack (where Alison Iraheta famously delivered her excellent "Someone to Watch Over Me").

We won't know what the five remaining season nine finalists will break out on Tuesday night's (May 4) episode of the show, but here's what the all-time competition looks like.

Katherine McPhee, "Someone to Watch Over Me"

It's a song written by the Gershwins and probably made more popular by Ella Fitzgerald, but McPhee nailed the song so perfectly that Frank would have certainly been proud. »

Paul McCartney Is Relieved The Beatles Never Reformed

28 April 2010 10:04 PM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Sir Paul McCartney says it was a "blessing" The Beatles never reformed. The musician, who quit the Fab Four in 1970, admits the possibility of him, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr reuniting was often discussed but never happened, and Paul thinks it was for the best.

"There was a bit of talk of The Beatles at certain points. What used to happen was three of us would fancy it and then maybe George or John or I wouldn't. In a way it was a blessing," he said. "We'd done it, why spoil it? Whether it's god given or not those four people was a pretty good mix."

67-year-old Paul also admits he is a better writer of emotional material as opposed to his late bandmate John whose music became politicized after The Beatles split. He added in an interview Q magazine, "You can't have it all, I've written songs more about emotions. »

'American Idol' Poll: Is 'Shania Twain Week' The Weirdest Theme Ever?

27 April 2010 10:06 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

By Eric Ditzian

Nothing against "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?" but is the songbook of Shania Twain really the best theme week that "American Idol" could have selected for Tuesday night's (April 27) Top Six show?

While we loved seeing the singer back in the spotlight during "Idol" auditions earlier this year (cheekily noting one contestant's "nice bottom end"), we fear she's simply been gone from the scene far too long. Her last studio album dropped in 2003, and she's never notched a chart-topping Billboard Hot 100 single (though in her defense, she has wrecked the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart). Yet as weird as Tuesday's ode to Shania is, "Idol" has a long history of picking theme weeks that, for one reason or another, leave us scratching our heads.

So just which theme week is the strangest in the show's nine-season history? Take a look at the list below and »

The Cannes Lineup (Thus Far)

20 April 2010 3:12 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Updated 04/19 They've added two titles but none to the actual competition list just yet. Updates are included below

04/15 Yes, they will add a few titles. Looking round the web people expect something like 4 to 5 more films to show up. Speculation that Malick's Tree of Life or Nolans Inception or Schnabel's Miral probably won't die until after they add said missing titles. But if you're heading over to the South of France next month or merely reading along on various Twitter feeds or film blogs, these are some of the titles you'll be hearing about.

Blanchett. Crowe. Scott

Opening Night Film

Because you have to kick off with a starry entry for that maximum red carpet kick. It gets the international and mainstream press excited and you need their eyeballs... even if your festival is for the global cinephiles.

Robin Hood (Ridley Scott)

I'm amused that the tagline is marketing this as an "untold story". Hee. »

NY French Cinema Rendez-Vous set to go

9 March 2010 12:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Paris -- French film promotion organization Unifrance will spread the creme-de-la-creme of Gallic films and talent over the Big Apple when the 15th annual Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in New York satiates Manhattan's appetite for Gallic cinema on March 11th at Lincoln Center.

A selection of films will screen for the public at the Walter Reade Theater and the IFC Center in Manhattan and the Bam in Brooklyn, and Unifrance is hoping positive buzz for the titles will spark sales for the nine titles in the lineup still seeking Us buyers.

Christian Carion's "L'Affaire Farewell," a NeoClassics title stateside, will open the fest with Carion and the film's star Guillaume Canet set to join the opening festivities.

The Rendez-Vous will feature screenings of several titles nominated for this year's Cesar Awards including best film nominees Philippe Lioret's "Welcome," Xavier Giannoli's "In the Beginning" and Lucas Belvaux's "Rapt. »
