Måneskin win Sanremo 2021 and fly to Eurovision 2021 to rock that stage

Historical win for the long-lasting Festival of the Italian Song - Sanremo 2021 - that sees a rock band winning the competition against all odds. It was already over 2 am in Italy and the Festival of Sanremo 2021 crowned their winner. Måneskin triumphed on that stage and demonstrated (again) to the whole world - actually shocking Italy - that talent shows do work and are able to discover amazing talents. Månesking is an Italian rock band consisting of lead vocalist Damiano David, bassist Victoria De Angelis, guitarist Thomas Raggi, and drummer Ethan Torchio. The band rose to fame after ending up second in the 12th Italian version of XFactor (2017). "Zitti e Buoni" (tr. shut up and calm) is a rock song that will shake the stage of Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam, were Månes...

Film recommendation: I Care a Lot

I Care A Lot is a hugely entertaining thriller, a side-swipe at 21st century capitalism n the US, and a joyous film of representation. Rosamund Pike is on top form as the (beautifully suited) Maria Grayson, a court-appointed guardian for elderly people who need care and support. Well, that is how she presents, but in fact she asset-strips them, seizing their homes to pay for her (inflated) services, care home bills – working with her business and life partner Fran (Eiza González) to fund their glamorous life style. All is going well until they move in on their latest mark, Fran (the wonderful Dianne Wiest), a wealthy retiree with no living family. But it turns out she has her own shady links and Maria and Fran soon come up against a volatile gangster (impeccably played by Peter Dinkl...

Forget “basic”, welcome awesomeness with Tia Kofi’s first music video

During her participation to RuPaul's Drag Race UK she was accused of being "basic"... we b*#@$es... she is back and there is nothing basic. Tia Kofi won by far a great number of RPDR UK's fans with her sympathy and sense of humor, but also because she has demonstrated to all of us that she can be a great entertainer. She released her fist song last Friday, and we spoke about her debut single here. Today she is out with her music video, and believe us: you will love her awesomeness! https://youtu.be/MKSIjZsrCg4 Tia Kofi spoke to Metro about her career transition: "It's something that's always been sort of inside, in my head and something that I've always sort of aspired to, but I never dreamed that I'd have the platform or the ability to do it. . . . I've actually written songs...

Tia Kofi releases her first music single – Outside In – and is a blast!

A bid for pop-drag-superstardom with a song, an anthem title Outside In. It is a triumphant and fierce electro-pop song written by Little Boots, Tom Aspaul and Gil Lewis, the one that Tia Kofi decided to use as debut single. An honest invitation to look “beyond the surface”. Tia Kofi had to Sashay Away in yesterday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK (Season 2) but she was able to win the hearts of thousands of viewers from the UK and from around the world with her honesty, uniqueness and persona. Amongst all the other queens of season 2 in UK, she was the one remained absolutely true to her-self and her drag-alter-ego.  Speaking to GayTimes she said: “It unleashes the things you’ve always wanted to do. My drag has always been about that pop princess energy and living that life, ...

Olly Alexander jokes about the fact that he proudly brought “a lesson in anal hygiene” to the worldwide public. 

The British singer from Years&Years debuted as main character of the AIDS Drama “It’s A Sin” playing Ritchie Tozer, and filming some almost explicit scenes of gay sex. We might all remember the scene when Ritchie is told that he needs “a good wash” by Ash (Nathaniel Curtis in real life) his lover in the series, just before some rimming.  Talking and reflecting about the relatability of this scene, Olly told GQ “If I can bring anything to the British public, it’s a lesson in anal hygiene. I can tell you I’ll never forget being practically butt-naked with my arse in the air in front of colleagues.” During the interview, Olly praised intimacy co-ordinator - Ita O’Brien - for being his “lifesaver” as to overcome his fear to film revealing sex scenes, she suggested him to bring more ...

If you are looking for a bit of fun escapism at the moment, settle in for this ridiculous but sweet and entertaining Spanish romp. Eva is a lawyer, engaged to Stuart, heir to a wealthy and powerful right-wing Scottish family (you might have to ignore some of the Scottish accents or the likelihood of any Scots being pro-Trump!). When her grandmother Sofía informs Eva that she wants to marry Celia, Eva panics that this will derail her own marriage and races back to her home village on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. She wants to persuade the elderly couple just to continue living together, ostensibly as friends, rather than to mess up everyone’s lives. Eva’s mother Natasha, who has been a part-time presence in Eva’s life, and her brother also turn up, as well as an old flame of Eva’s ...

Years & Years release the official song for “It’s A Sin”

It’s a Sin is a new show launching on Channel 4 in the UK where Olly Alexander - the singer of the band - is one of the main characters of the show. Olly plays the role of the main character - Ritchie - an aspiring actor who decided to move to London to get a better life, but falls into a spiral of hedonism that will lead him and his friends to experience unexpected and very difficult situations. It’s a Sin - which is written by Russel T. Davies - famous for being the creator of Queer As Folk, explores and follows the lives of a group of gay men in the 80’s, in a London hardly hit by the HIV/AIDS crisis and the deaths of thousands of people linked to the LGBT+ community all around the world. https://youtu.be/1CSkP4ktc-o This song is a slowered cover of Pet Shop Boys’s hit “It’s a...

A fascinating film that explores work, motherhood, space, love and time - but in a quiet way, driven by Eva Green's powerful central performance. Alice Winocour’s superb film follows Anna (Eva Green), a French astronaut who achieves her life’s ambition when she is selected to join a space mission. She must undergo rigorous training to prepare for a year in space. She is one of only a few women to have made this leap and we see the sexism that she faces, even within her own crew, let alone from the baying press. But she must also reconcile to the fact that she will not see her young daughter for a year, and how hard that will be for both of them. Stella will stay with her father, from whom Anna is separated although they remain on good terms. The film ends as the mission launches into...

This debut feature from Shannon Murphy (Killing Eve) is a fresh, thrilling and moving coming-of-age story which takes the audience on an emotional journey with four flawed, entirely human characters. Talented young actor Eliza Scanlen (Beth in Little Women and Amma in Sharp Objects) plays Milla, a terminally ill teenager who falls for Moses (Toby Wallace), a drug-dealing ne’er-do-well. Their meet-cute is, really, anything but, although the romance blossoms in her troubled teen mind, and she invites him to stay at their house. Her concerned parents, Anna and Henry, (superbly played by Essie Davis and Ben Mendelsohn) worry about the relationship with the young man who is eight years older and regularly takes drugs from their house. But we also soon see that Anna and Henry have their own p...
