A Sports Star is Born
Michael Sam, one of the newly drafted players for the St. Louis Rams football team and the first openly gay player in the NFL, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Out magazine. The cover story interview is an interesting read particularly because of the defensiveness that Sam exudes at the start of the interview because of his distrust of the media. Because of his place as the first openly gay player in the NFL, absolutely everything that he does is scrutinized and criticized. The interview article is a great read and the photos that accompany the feature are great as well. Click thru the gallery to see Michael Sam‘s first cover story feature for Out magazine and then click HERE to read the interview in full. The scrutiny he has faced thus far is only the beginning. But my gut tells me that his talent and his fortitude will allow him to win the day and prove to be a very successful NFL star.

But, maybe not really
For the past week or so, Madonna has been promoting the release (or something) of a new song titled Messiah on her official Instagram profile. First she shared video of an orchestra recording a portion of the song in the studio and then she posted lyrics from the song. Today we see that she posted an image that looks like it could be a mock-up of the proposed cover artwork for the Messiah single release … but upon further inspection, it’s also very possible that the photo she posted was just shared for fun. Click below to see the possible cover art for Messiah and see what you think. More »

Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen is featured in the new issue of Flaunt magazine, looking about as cool as he ever does. On Hannibal, he plays the dangerously charming, insidiously intelligent, creatively gastronomical titular character with such perfection that I oftentimes forget that the great Sir Anthony Hopkins originated the role in the film Silence of the Lambs. Mads is so good as Hannibal that he has become the only Dr. Lecter for me. I am such a fan of the show that I get giddy at the thought of new episodes … so I was very, very happy to learn earlier this year that the show will be back for a third season next year. We have a long time to wait before Hannibal returns so I’m so thankful to Flaunt for giving us this feature on Mikkelsen to tide us over in the meantime. Click thru the gallery to see this very handsome set of photos and then click HERE to read the accompanying article. If you don’t know Mads or Hannibal, you need to get with the program. Trust me.
Who am I to argue?

'Rihanna in Arabia'
Rihanna is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and as you can see in the gallery presented here, Ri Ri is fully dressed in each and every photo. Now, wearing clothing in a fashion magazine photospread isn’t really an odd thing for most celebs but Rihanna isn’t like most celebs. But, because of Harper’s Bazaar‘s Arabian audience, I think it was a wise decision for Rihanna to appear fully clothed in this magazine. I have to say, this spread is really beautiful. The clothing and the styling are both so incredible. I now Rihanna likes to flaunt her sick body but there is something to be said about modeling actual fashions from time to time. This is a great magazine feature. I am in love.
