Heather Strange premieres video for “Ruthless”

Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter and artist Chris Kittrell has released the debut music video for his new project, Heather Strange.

The track, Ruthless, is available now and of the track, Chris says: “I wrote ‘Ruthless’ at a low point in my life. I had insecurities and doubts about where I was going, and the world around me. It was rough, but I kept holding on and pushing myself forward, creating music and art. Perseverance is so important. If you hold on and put energy into the things you love, life will balance out.”

Of his new project, Chris says: “Heather Strange is my stage name, inspired by the street where I first started writing the music in Cold Water Canyon, Los Angeles. I like the name because it’s something bigger than me, something I can create and become a character in front of my audience.”

Sir Andy Murray is officially knighted

Tennis star Andy Murray is a two-time Wimbledon champion, a two-time Olympic champion, a U.S. Open champion, and a former world number one.

Now he’s also a knight.

Sir Andy Murray, currently off the tennis tour recovering from hip surgery, was officially knighted on Thursday by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.

The recognition was given to Murray for his services to tennis and charity. The Brit has also earned an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) medal from HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, in October 2013 after winning his first Wimbledon crown.

“I’m very proud to receive it. It’s a nice day to spend with my family; my wife and parents are here,” Murray said in a statement. “‘I’d have liked to [have brought] my kids but I think they’re a bit young. I’ll show them the medal when I get home.”

Morning Man Classic: Bill Paxton!

http://backstage.blogs.com/.a/6a00d8341c9cc153ef0115711b2b3e970b-300wiIt was such a shock when Bill Paxton died more than two years ago.

Today would have been his 64th birthday.

I had myself a big ol’ crush on the Big Love star since Apollo 13 and Twister, two films that catapulted this handsome actor to leading man status. But he had been working up to it for years with supporting roles in such films as Tombstone, True Lies, Indian Summer and Boxing Helena.

He also was one of the stars of The Titanic and directed and starred in the superb 2001 dramatic horror film Frailty that left me so creeped out I kept looking over my shoulder as I walked home from the movie theater.

My only interview with Bill came on the red carpet of the GLAAD Media Awards during the four-year run on Big Love.

“It’s as big as anything I’ve ever been in,” he told me. “What’s interesting about it is it’s drawn every group of people, every age group, every demographic. It seems like they’re all really getting off on the show so that’s cool.”

And, I remark, all the women want him (he has three wives on Big Love).

“It’s not bad,” Paxton said. “Let’s hope the Viagra holds out.”

Then, I couldn’t resist: “Some of the guys like you too.”

Bill laughed and said, “Thank God! More in the old days though.”

TBT: 19 years ago today, Elizabeth Taylor and Julie Andrews became Dames of the British Empire

View this post on Instagram

19 years ago today, Queen Elizabeth II recognized Elizabeth Taylor's contributions to acting and AIDS activism by appointing her a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Here, she is seen alongside Julie Andrews, who was also honored that day. (Elizabeth broke palace protocol to wear her medal for the photo!) ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Elizabeth later said about that exciting day, “There is a nice little behind-the-scenes footnote to this day, which is that my old friend Julie Andrews was also among those being recognized by the Queen. Julie and I were glued at the hip out of pure nervousness and excitement. Julie is a lady and I’m not – I’m more of a broad, so I guess becoming a dame seems like a natural extension. As I recall, at one point while we were being briefed before the ceremony, our patient instructor turned to Julie and advised her ‘to look after me.’ As though I would possibly misbehave! But Julie has a grand sense of humor, and I was so grateful to share that special day with her.”⁣ ⁣ #ElizabethTaylor #OnThisDay⁣ #otd

Trailer for “Filthy Rich,” the new Fox drama starring Kim Cattrall as matriarch of mega-rich Southern family


As a Sex and the City fan, it will be forever tragic that we didn’t get one last feature film out of the franchise to wrap things up. The reason, famously, is Kim Cattrall. She didn’t want to do it and after some bad publicity about her decision, she went public with her dislike of Sarah Jessica Parker and said she was not friends with any of her co-stars.

I wondered then, what role is she ever going to have that is as great as the glorious Samantha Jones?

Well, this one looks pretty juicy as well – as juicy as you can get on network television anyway.

Here is the trailer for Filthy Rich, Cattrall’s new Fox series.

A southern Gothic family drama in which wealth, power and religion collide – with outrageously soapy results. When the patriarch of a mega-rich Southern family, famed for creating a wildly successful Christian television network, dies in a plane crash, his wife and family are stunned to learn that he fathered three illegitimate children, all of whom are written into his will, threatening their family name and fortune. With monumental twists and turns, FILTHY RICH presents a world in which everyone has an ulterior motive – and no one is going down without a fight.

Nico Tortorella: “I personally have experienced two abortions that have directly impacted my entire life”

View this post on Instagram

what the fuck is happening? we all need to be talking about alabama. we all need to be talking about abortion. heterosexuals and women are not the only ones who need access. and furthermore, the choice does not only affect the person carrying. for every egg there is the sperm. i personally have experienced two abortions that have directly impacted my entire life. the first when i was 19, and the second at 25. it was not my choice whether or not to continue on with a life created. however it was my responsibility to support the individual in question. to support the partnership. to support the choice. not a day goes by i don’t think about the lives lost. but more importantly, the lives gained in the individuals who had access to choice, had access to continue on whichever way they saw fit. abortion is our constitutional right. i don’t know what life would look like having two children at 30, but i do know what life is like having had the experience. i do know that when the time is right, my partner and i will welcome the children we and god create. and i will fight like fucking hell for my children’s safety and freedom. for our freedom. we create life with god, and we also create choice with god, under god, as god. what’s happening in alabama is a warning for us all and my god is our rage is necessary. #allofitisyou #youknowme #spacebetween

Thursday Morning Man: Dusan Lajovic!

Sexy Serbian tennis star Dusan Lajovic became a surprise finalist at the Monte Carlo Open last month after he beat the red-hot Dominic Thiem in the quarterfinals and Daniil Medvedev in the semifinals.

It was a remarkable week for the 28 year old who not only reached his first singles final on tour, but also reached a career high ranking of 23.

He had already proven himself to be a reliable and consistent player for the Serbian Davis Cup team contributing to their achieving one final, one semifinal, and three quarterfinals.

Steve Grand is back with another music video: Pink Champagne.

I love it!

The openly-gay 29 year old explores having fun and drinking in the summer sun and toeing the line between a good time and addiction.

“‘Pink Champagne’ explores my tumultuous relationship with alcohol, from within the lighter context of fun and partying, to the darker moments where it’s consumed in excess and/or isolation in a misled attempt to mask pain,” Grand tells Pride. “I think on some level, everyone can relate to what it’s like to have a relationship with something that can go from frivolous and fun, to abusive and toxic. For some of us, identifying that line between ‘fun’ and ‘toxic,’ isn’t always so black and white, and that’s where we find ourselves getting into trouble.”

Welcome to the world Mia Barbara Rogers-Berlanti. 5/13/19. Our hearts and our family have grown even larger. @robbierogers has already mastered two child multitasking, big brother Caleb is being just sweet enough & I’m as thankful and in awe as ever. The “Barbara” is for my amazing Mom, who though she’s not here to share in this moment, will be watching over her granddaughter Mia forever— and laughing as Robbie and I figure out the parenting skills she mastered so perfectly.
