Sure, there may be songs you wish were banned from karaoke playlists, but these tunes are actually prohibited from being used at karaoke night. The horror!

“Hello” — Adele

Adele

Broadimage/REX/ShutterstockDon’t expect to find this Adele power ballad in any karaoke songbooks. In 2017, the British songstress chose not to issue a new license for her music, according to MSN. Seems like the only places you’ll truly be able to belt out her emotional tunes will be in the shower or in your car. Guess this is goodbye to “Hello.” Check out some more things that you won’t believe are banned in the U.S. Read More

The gay community has always supported fierce, outspoken women and men. These stars proved what it takes though to become a true gay icon.

The term “gay icon” is thrown around a lot lately, at least by members of the gay community. As soon as a pop star releases a dance single or pulls off some sickening stunt on stage, somebody is quick to pull the “gay icon” card. While there are many ways of earning that title, it usually involves years of dedication to the community that supported you, and proving that you care about them as much as they care about you.

Lady Gaga Vs Bette Midler – A Million Reasons And A Rose (Sir Hank Mashup) (Audio)

How do ya’ll feel about this? Somebody took Bette’s The Rose and overlayed Lady Gaga’s voice over it. Pass, Miss, Or Interesting. I found it interesting, but I wish they would have somehow incorporated Bette into it. It Just seems wrong to ghost her like that. Mister D

on the ‘girl bands’ of her youth] The Ronettes, The Chiffons, The Marvelettes, The Crystals.. they were completely and utterly wholesome and whimsical. And optimistic. The music was very optimistic and upbeat. The ballads were sometimes sad, but you knew things were going to turn out in the end. The music wasn’t bleak. This was before Bob Dylan, you know. – Bette Midler

Freak Show Review: Worthwhile For It’s Main Actor

Das Kulture
FREAKSHOW
Posted on February 20, 2017
By Konrad Kögler

2017-02-09_2-39-50

The “Freak Show” by Trudie Styler, which ran in the Generation 14plus series, is particularly worthwhile for its main actor Alex Lawther . The British talent should be kept in mind. In “Freakshow” he appears much more flamboyant than in his first lead role in “Departure”, where he noticed as a poem writing, timid teenager.

He plays Billy Bloom, a teenager who loves the big performance and likes to present himself as David Bowie, Lady Gaga, Marilyn Monroe or in fantasy bird costume fantasy costumes. He has inherited this tendency to drama and eccentricity from his mother ( Bette Midler in a parade role and her first small cinema appearance for five years). Read More
