Lady Gaga’s Carpool Karaoke Might be The Late Late Show’s Best Yet

We all know Gaga can belt—but she and Corden really had a blast

Lady Gaga and James?

No disappointment at all -in fact, thanks to her energetic banter with Corden, her ever-fabulous belting, and Corden’s decision to mimic some of her most notorious outfits, Gaga’s Carpool Karaoke segment might be the best one yet.

Gaga also crashed the Late Late Show stage on Tuesday night, October 25, briefly hijacking Corden’s monologue before the host came out on stage – in a stage of partial undress.

The two eventually reconciled, and Gaga joined the band for the remainder of the show.

Truthfully, Corden seems like the type of guy who can shoot the breeze with just about anyone – but he and Gaga seemed to really vibe, teasing one another, gabbing about Gaga’s upcoming Super Bowl performance, and briefly improvising their way through an O-Town cover.

At one point, Gaga even took the wheel.

In between, of course, they squeezed in a few Gaga favorites old and new, including “Perfect Illusion,” “Bad Romance,” “The Edge of Glory,” “Born This Way,” “Poker Face,” and “Million Reasons.”

But the true highlight of the session might be when Corden took Gaga on a trip down fashion memory lane, bringing back some of her most notorious outfits – yes, including the meat dress.

Based on her reaction, it seems Gaga has soured on perishable attire.

I must say that I’m sorry you have to wake up to this, if you haven’t seen it already.

It’s always been said that if one is ready to dish it out, one has to be ready to take it.

Or, if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Some time yesterday afternoon, I received continued “beeps” on my cell.

Nude statues of the “donald” were popping up everywhere.

I kept following the story and found out what happened.

Naked Donald Trump Statues Populate American Cities

Nate Hopper

An anarchist collective distributed the life-size likenesses in very public locations
In New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Cleveland, life-size statues of Donald Trump in the nude stand in public. They were placed there by the anarchist collective Indecline, which among other projects has also glued the names of black men killed by police officers onto blank stars in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Trump project is titled after a genital omission each statue shares, “The Emperor Has No Balls.” It’s an escalation of Hans Christian Andersen’s 1837 parable about a ruler so overconfident that he believes he’s wearing the world’s finest clothes, even when parading in the nude through his realm, beneath “his splendid canopy” — until a child breaks his delusion.

The artist who constructed the statues goes by the name Ginger and is a regular keynote speaker at haunted house conventions.

He told the Washington Post,

“When the Indecline organization approached me, it was all because of my monster-making abilities.”

According to the Post, he spent 25 hours weekly since receiving the commission in April, and worked through 300 pounds of clay and silicone, to construct the statues.

Join us and show the world that love conquers hate

For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder.

Now, the tragic killing of 49 innocent people on Latin Night at Pulse nightclub in Orlando — young lives taken solely because of who they were — has rocked our nation to its core.

49 Top Stars Gather to Record Short Film to Honor Orlando Victims

By Michael O’Connell

(June 29, 2016)

Nobody knew what to do, but everybody wanted to do something. The June 12 mass shooting that claimed 49 lives at a gay club in Orlando, Florida, unfolded more than 2,000 miles away from Los Angeles — but the grief and frustration over an increasingly familiar narrative left many people in Hollywood searching a meaningful way to respond.

The recipient of many blind offers of service was Ryan Murphy.

The producer’s phone rang frequently in the days following the attack at Pulse, with one call coming from Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin. The two quickly crafted a plan to recruit 49 altruistic celebrities to memorialize each of the Orlando victims by reading a brief eulogy of their lives, editing the clips to construct a 18-minute film that started streaming live online starting June 29.

“We want to ensure that what we do is effective,” Griffin told The Hollywood Reporter on set of production.

“It’s on all of us to know each and every one of them by name and for their legacies to, in part, spur change on important issues.”

Michael Jackson …. a very sad loss, in spite of it all!!


~~June 24, 2014~~ 

” …. and we all know this!”

Singer-songwriter Michael Jackson’s award-winning career as the King of Pop transformed the face of pop music and popular culture. He released the best-selling album in history, Thriller, in 1982.

He died unexpectedly on June 25, 2009 … 5 years ago. 

MJ1

~~Synopsis~~

Dubbed the “King of Pop,” singer-songwriter Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana, on August 29, 1958. As a child, he performed as the lead singer of the Jackson family’s popular Motown group, the Jackson 5. Jackson went on to become one of the most internationally famous award-winning solo pop sensations to date. Jackson’s 2009 death stirred controversy and was ultimately ruled a homicide. Dr. Conrad Murray, who had been caring for the pop star at the time of his death, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter on November 7, 2011, later receiving a four-year prison sentence.

MJ2

~~Early Life~~

Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958, in Gary, Indiana, to an African-American working-class family. His father, Joseph Jackson, had been a guitarist but had put aside his musical aspirations to provide for his family as a crane operator. Believing his sons had talent, he molded them into a musical group in the early 1960s.

At first, the Jackson Family performers consisted of Michael’s older brothers, Tito, Jermaine and Jackie. Michael joined his siblings when he was 5 years old, and emerged as the group’s lead vocalist. He showed remarkable range and depth for such a young performer, impressing audiences with his ability to convey complex emotions. Older brother Marlon also became a member of the group, which evolved into the Jackson 5.

MJ3

Behind the scenes, Joseph Jackson pushed his sons to succeed. He was also reportedly known to become violent with them. Michael and his brothers spent endless hours rehearsing and polishing up their act. At first, the Jackson 5 played local gigs and built a strong following. They recorded one single on their own, “Big Boy” with the b-side “You’ve Changed,” but it failed to generate much interest.

The Jackson 5 moved on to working an opening act for such R&B artists as Gladys Knight and the Pips, James Brown, and Sam and Dave. Many of these performers were signed to the legendary Motown record label, and it has been reported that Gladys Knight may have been the one to tell Motown founder Berry Gordy about the Jackson 5. Impressed by the group, Gordy signed them to his label in 1968.

Relocating to Los Angeles, Michael and his brothers started work on their music and dancing with their father as their manager. They lived with Gordy and also with Supremes singer Diana Ross when they first arrived there. In August 1969, the Jackson 5 was introduced to the music industry at a special event, and later served as the opening act for the Supremes. Their first album, Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5, hit the charts in December of that year. It’s first single, “I Want You Back,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in January 1970. More chart-topping singles quickly followed, such as “ABC,” “The Love You Save” and “I’ll Be There.”

On June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication after suffering cardiac arrest at his home on North Carolwood Drive in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. His personal physician, Conrad Murray, said he had found Jackson in his room, not breathing and with a barely detectable pulse, and that he administered CPR on Jackson’s bed to no avail.

After a call was placed to 9-1-1 at 12:21 P.M., Jackson was treated by paramedics at the scene and was later pronounced dead at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. On the eve of Jackson’s 51st birthday, the Los Angeles County Coroner concluded that his death was a homicide. Shortly before his death, Jackson had reportedly been administered propofol and three anti-anxiety benzodiazepines, lorazepam, and midazolam, in his home. His personal physician was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 and had served a two-year prison sentence.

Jackson’s death triggered an outpouring of grief around the world, creating unprecedented surges of Internet traffic and causing sales of his music and that of the Jackson 5 to increase dramatically. Jackson had also intended to perform a series of fifty comeback/farewell concerts entitled This Is It to over one million people at London‘s O2 Arena between July 13, 2009, and March 6, 2010.

ThisIs

public memorial service for Jackson was held on July 7, 2009, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where he had rehearsed for the London concerts the night before his death. The service was broadcast live around the world, attracting a global audience of up to one billion people. In 2010, Sony Music Entertainment signed a US $250 million deal with Jackson’s estate to retain distribution rights to his recordings up until 2017, and to release seven posthumous albums over the decade following his death. Jackson’s death is ranked No. 1 on VH1/VH1 Classic‘s list of 100 Most Shocking Moments in Music.

Loren Rex Cameron ….. The process of changing …. Transgender!


Image

~~February 2, 2014~~

Loren Rex Cameron (born 1959) is an American photographer, author and transsexual activist. His work includes portraiture and self-portraiture which consist of lesbian and transsexual bodies in both clothed and nude form.

Cameron’s photography captures images of the transsexual body that “provide an affirming visual resource for transgendered people and to demystify the transsexual body for the non-transgendered viewer.”

Image

From the age of 16, Cameron was sexually and socially identifying as a lesbian. It was in 1987 that Cameron began his transition from female to male. He began his photography career in 1993 as he documented his process of becoming a man. As Cameron began to take pictures of his own transformation, he began to photograph other transsexuals.

His work includes portraiture and self-portraiture which consist of lesbian and transsexual bodies. Heralded as groundbreaking and stunning, his book Body Alchemy: Transsexual Portraits has been regarded as a seminal contribution. It has been critically acclaimed worldwide and in 1996 received numerous certificates of recognition, including two Lambda Literary awards.

Image

~~Biography~~

Loren Rex Cameron was born in Pasadena, California in 1959. He moved to rural Arkansas in 1969 after his mother’s death, where he lived as a self-described tomboy on his father’s farm. By the age of sixteen, Cameron identified both sexually and socially as a lesbian and encountered homophobic hostility in the small town where he lived. At this time, Cameron quit school and left his home to travel the country seeking work as a construction laborer and other blue collar employment.

In 1979, he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where he identified socially with the lesbian community until the age of twenty-six, when he confronted his dissatisfaction with the female body with which he was born.

Tran

Cameron’s interest in photography coincided with the beginning of his physical changes as he documented his own physiological transition from female to male at this time. Despite his lack of formal training, beginning in 1993 Cameron studied the rudiments of photography and began to compassionately photograph the transsexual community.

Since 1994, he has given lectures on his work at universities, educational conferences and art institutes.

By 1995, Cameron’s photographs had been shown in solo exhibitions in San Francisco, Minneapolis, a Los Angeles.

Rex1

~~Works~~

Loren Rex Cameron’s photography and writing was first published by Cleis Press in 1996. Body Alchemy: Transsexual Portraits, documented Cameron’s personal experience of transition from female to male, his life as a man, and the everyday lives of transmen he knew. Body Alchemy was received with much positive acclaim and became a double 1996 Lambda Literary Award winner. It remains his most well-known work to date, though he has since published other photographic works.

Cameron’s images have been exhibited in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, in Santiago, Chile, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and in Mexico City, Mexico. They have been published in numerous books such as Transgender Warriors (Leslie Feinberg, 1996) and Constructing Masculinity: Discussions in Contemporary Culture (Routledge, 1995), as well as in various magazines.

He has also posed for photographers such as Daniel Nicoletta, Amy Arbus, and Howard Shatz.

Image

Cameron lectures throughout the United States at universities and other venues, including Smith College, Harvard, Cornell, Brown, the University of California at Berkeley, Penn State, and at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In May 2008, Cameron presented his work at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. On television, he has been profiled on the Discovery Health Channel‘s LGBT-themed one-hour special Sex Change: Him to Her, on the National Geographic Channel‘s “TabooSexual Identity” series. He has also been interviewed in the magazine, The New Yorker. Cameron’s photographs document the lives and bodies of both transsexual men and women, providing positive, beautiful images of transgendered people.

His first published works (Body Alchemy and Man Tool: The Nuts and Bolts of Female-to-Male Surgery) consists largely of self-portraits, FTM body modifications, and portraits of other female to male transsexuals. More recently published work is a diverse and unprecedented representation of both female and male transsexuals, portraits and classical nudes (Body Photographs by Loren Cameron Volume 1 and 2, and Cameron Correspondence 1997-2003, Taller Experimental Cuerpos Pintados 2003).

A photographic project focuses on the sexuality of gay FTMs.

~~Quote~~

  • “What was initially a crude documentation of my own personal journey quickly evolved into an impassioned mission. Impulsively, I began to photograph other transsexuals that I knew, feeling compelled to make images of their emotional and physical triumphs. I was fueled by my need to be validated and wanted, in turn, to validate them. I wanted the world to see us, I mean, really see us.”

BODY ALCHEMY: TRANSSEXUAL PORTRAITS
Photographs by Loren Cameron
From it’s striking cover, Body Alchemy grabs you and won’t let go until you’ve delved into the mysteries revealed by beautiful photographs and succinct text presented in a tastefully artful setting. This is, quite simply, a gorgeous book, on a subject so unconventional it boggles the mind. Caught within it’s pages, held lovingly and presented honestly, without undue trappings, are the boldest of a new generation of transsexual men. These are people born into “female” bodies, who are living as men at least some of the time, and changing their bodies to suit their desires. Just as bodybuilders sculpt their bodies to fit their personal aesthetic, so too do transsexuals mold their bodies around an ideal, though for these folks the ideal is not about muscle or fitness, but rather gender.Photographer Loren Cameron also serves as a subject for about one third of the book. He is obviously a man who works out, and his body as photographed is about as pleasing as I can imagine, for that of a man. His animal-like tattoos create an effect like that of a caged beast, virile and potent. On the cover, he is posed in what I took at first to be a “muscle man” pose, but which, on closer inspection, turned out to be a shot of him injecting himself with a syringe in the upper buttock. What at first appeared a pose, becomes instead a riveting testimony to both suffering and strength. It also establishes a level of tension that heightens the subject matter.Loren makes a fascinating subject. In some of the shots he seems fierce, projecting determination and anger. He admits to the anger that rises so easily as a result of the testosterone injections, of more frequent fights, of the struggle to contain the beast within. He writes engagingly of his relationships and feelings, and left me wanting more. He avoids self-indulgence, instead showing the many faces of a whole, healthy person.
