howard-stern-360x225Do you know what I love about that guy? He’s an ugly motherfucker. He’s fat. And I love it. You know what, he looks gay to me. Not that anybody looks gay but he does seem effeminate. I like that he’s chubby and gay, that’s why I love him. That’s how you know how good that song is… he’s fat and he’s gay and little girls worship him.”

— Howard Stern speaking about six-time Grammy nominee Sam Smith

Josey-Greenwell-Nate-Green-360x259Josey Greenwell, the openly gay country music artist who once dated Brazilian model Rodiney Santiago and graced the pages of DNA in his underwear, has emerged from a year of hiding as Nate Green, a dashing young country singer who is now straight and aggressively banning gay men from interacting with him on social media.

The sleuths over at WeHo Confidential first made the connection earlier this month, noting that “Josey Greenwell” had mysteriously disappeared from the Internet in early 2013:

About 6 to 8 months ago, we noticed Josey Greenwell took down his Facebook profile and fan page along with all social media profiles. Even his Wikipedia profile was deleted. It was like he tried to disappear or erase his identity.

Then recently, we discovered why. Josey Greenwell resurfaced as Nate Green, a straight country singer.

Before the success of out country singer Steve Grand swept the community last year, Greenwell told DNA that “music should be about talent and not sexuality, but I’m proud of mine nonetheless.”

Proud?

The former identity of “Nate Green” was confirmed to WeHo Confidential by LA scenesters who used to party and “hook up” with Greenwell, and by Josh Robbins, a BNA Talent Group representative.

Currently, Nate Green does not allow gay men to comment on his Facebook or Instagram pages, and bans users that associate him with his former identity of Josey Greenwell. According to WC, one commenter received threats of legal action from Green after posting “gay-related” comments on his pages.

BsnhbpQCEAAkmSXAfter ruling the world with her critically acclaimed and record breaking album 21, Adele has announced that 2015 will be her return to the charts and on the road.

The appropriately titled 25 will come out this year as tweeted out by the World Music Awards account.

Adele is poised to return to her throne and hopefully shake the music world up again, but the real question is the theme of the album. 21 was filled with break up anthems, but with all of her success since it’s release, 25 could be a lighter and happier album this time.

ricky-martin-singing-e1326204424561-360x240A full 15 years after reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Ricky Martin’s second English single “She’s All I Ever Had” is getting a much-needed pronoun swap.

According to reports, the 42-year-old Latin pop star changed pronouns in the song from “she” to “he” while performing during Morocco’s Mawazine Music Festival earlier this month. Though he sang a majority of the song with the lyric “she,” he awarded the song’s climax with an updated “he.”

According to GayStarNews, Martin also acknowledged a rainbow flag in the audience while he sang “Livin’ La Vida Loca.” “What a beautiful rainbow flag right there,” he said.

The change may not seem like much, but it’s everything in a country that punishes homosexuality. As Think Progress notes, article 489 in Morocco’s penal code makes homosexuality a crime punishable by imprisonment. Just last month, six men were convicted of homosexuality and face up to three years in prison.

But Martin is at least still allowed to perform in the country. Following similar proclamations of solidarity in Russia, artists including Lady Gaga, Madonna, Selena Gomez, and even Cher were threatened with a permanent embargo.

WVrbU3XKelly Rowland has released “The Game,” a cut featured on the Pepsi Beats of the Beautiful Game album. The 11 track LP has been dubbed a football inspired visual album by the soda manufacturer.

“I was immediately attracted to ‘The Game’ because I can identify with its theme of overcoming challenges and finding your voice,” said Kelly.

“It’s a very important message and I’m honored to partner with Pepsi on a project that brings the worlds of music, sports, and film together. As an artist—and a huge film and sports fan—it’s been an incredible experience.”

Spike Lee is set to direct a short film for the cut. Other artists featured on the album include Janelle Monáe, Rita Ora, Don Omar, Santigold, Timbaland, and more.

Screen-Shot-2014-05-28-at-10.39.32-AM-360x268British singer Sam Smith is officially addressing his sexuality in a new interview with The Fader. Last week, his implied gayness became a topic of discussion when his latest video “Leave Your Lover” showed him romantically involved with another man.

In the Lonely Hour is about a guy that I fell in love with last year,” he tells The Fader, “and he didn’t love me back. I think I’m over it now, but I was in a very dark place. I kept feeling lonely in the fact that I hadn’t felt love before.”

He continues:

I told him about it recently, and obviously it was never going to go the way I wanted it to go, because he doesn’t love me. But it was good as a form of closure, to get it off my chest and tell him. I feel better for it. I feel almost like I signed off this part of my life where I keep giving myself to guys who are never going to love me back. It feels good to have interviews like this, to chat about it and put stuff to bed. It’s all there now, and I can move on and hopefully find a guy who can love me the way I love him.

Smith was assumed to be gay for years after revealing himself as a future pop “diva,” aspiring to become like his idols George Michael and Elton John. He also had a personal Twitter account several years ago, on which he was extremely open about being gay.

He tells The Fader:

I am comfortable with myself, and my life is amazing in that respect. I’m very comfortable and happy with everything. I just wanted to talk about him and have it out there. It’s about a guy and that’s what I wanted people to know—I want to be clear that that’s what it’s about. I’ve been treated as normal as anyone in my life; I’ve had no issues. I do know that some people have issues in life, but I haven’t, and it’s as normal as my right arm. I want to make it a normality because this is a non-issue. People wouldn’t ask a straight person these questions. I’ve tried to be clever with this album, because it’s also important to me that my music reaches everybody. I’ve made my music so that it could be about anything and everybody— whether it’s a guy, a female or a goat—and everybody can relate to that. I’m not in this industry to talk about my personal life unless it’s in a musical form.

On fans being “curious” about his sexuality:

In the short time I’ve lived on this Earth, all I’ve seen are boxes. People put things in boxes; it makes it easier to digest information. People say I’m the new Adele. Why is [gender] a talking point? I’m singing, I’m making music, I’m performing my music—that’s what should be the talking point. If I come on record and start speaking about it in an interview, then mark my words, that’s your time to chip in; I’ve given you the passcode to my business and to my personal life. But I am an artist, and in interviews, speaking like this, it’s not my idea of art; it’s just my idea of exchange, talking human to human. It shouldn’t be an issue, but it will be an issue. It’s always an issue.

BkBbYYlIUAAo2LlIt may seem like just a small tweet, but it’s pretty ace that someone as high-profile as Lorde is comfortable enough in her own skin to tweet this.

You gotta love it when celebrities call out things like this.
