Much like listening to her music, chatting to Aurora is a calming experience, but one that also provokes thought and stays with you long after the record’s stopped spinning. Right now, she’s preoccupied with the state of the environment, stressing that our generation is the one that has the power to destroy or save the earth, a message that penetrates the listener’s mind on A Different Kind Of Human, the cinematic second ‘step’ (or half) of her new album....

Prior to the horrific events at Pulse nightclub in Orlando in 2016, America’s deadliest attack on an LGBTQ+ space occurred at the UpStairs Lounge in New Orleans. One night in the summer of 1973, 32 people died as the result of an arson attack on the bar. The View UpStairs gives an account of the events of that evening, viewed through a contemporary lens, with original music, lyrics and book by Max Vernon. The show’s concept demands a significant amount...

Shawn Mendes gave a thoughtful response recently after a young fan asked him to help her come out to her parents at a pre-concert Q&A in Oakland, California. But ultimately, the “Mercy” singer turned down the request, and his refusal, however well-intentioned, has rubbed some people the wrong way. Video from the Q&A shows the young girl telling Mendes that she’s bisexual. “I, like, haven’t told anybody,” she added. “My parents are kind of, like, very strict, and I don’t...

Lance Bass has reminisced on the first time he ever came out to Britney Spears. During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the host told the audience that the former NSYNC star told Britney he was gay to stop her from crying on the night of her first wedding in 2004. “It was the night she got married, the first time, to Jason,” he said. “I went up to Vegas to see the craziness that was happening...

Based on Robert James Waller’s bestselling 1992 novel – and subsequent film starring Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep – The Bridges of Madison County tells the story of Francesca, an Italian woman who has moved to the USA with her American husband Bud to raise a family. While Bud and the children are away at the Iowa state fair, a National Geographic photographer, Robert, stops at the house to ask directions; he has been tasked with taking photos of...

After delivering a string of stunning music videos this era – including the Joan Of Arc-inspired Dark Ballet and political call-to-action God Control – Madonna is stripping things back for her new Batuka clip, directed by Emmanuel Adjei. Batuka is one of the most experimental tracks on the Queen of Pop’s new album, channeling Batuque, a traditional style of music created by the women that originated from Cape Verde. The video features the all-female Orquestra Batukadeiras, modern purveyors of the genre, and was shot...

Goodman Theatre uncovers The Music Man The classic musical The Music Man from 1957 is being brought back to life currently at the Goodman Theatre. Based on the book by Meredith Wilson, the plot revolves around Harold Hill, a con man who poses as band organizer in a small Midwestern town. The five time Tony Award winner went on to have both movie and television adaptations. Jeremy Peter Johnson plays several characters in the production, making this his Goodman Theatre debut. His...

The Queen of Pop has debuted another video for the Madame X era, and perhaps another taste of her upcoming Madame X Tour.  Madonna‘s “Batuka” is a politically-charged track in the style of the Batuque, created by women in Cape Verde: according to the video, “some say the birth place of slave trade.”  The percussion-heavy, call-and-answer style song is passionately sung by Madge. When she sings, –it’s not that hard to guess to whom she is referring.  Watch the “Batuka” video below. Let us know your...

The British pop princess and French singer-songwriter have teamed up for progressive pop anthem Gone, which Charli says is about “feeling isolated and alone in crowded rooms” and “learning how to be comfortable with who you truly are”. “I feel so unstable, fucking hate these people, how they’re making me feel lately, they’re making me weird baby,” Charli laments on the track before Christine joins her on the massive chorus, where they ponder: “Why do we keep when the water...

On dance-pop anthem Naughty, the Aussie singer-songwriter ‘loses control’ and fails to keep his promise to a love interest by dancing up on the body-ody-ody of somebody else. Ye, naughty. “Nights like these, I don’t think of you,” he sings on the track. “He makes me feel things I shouldn’t do. Left you waiting up in my room, I’m not coming home tonight. So sorry, it’s not your fault but I’m up on his body, about to do you wrong.” “Naughty...

After introducing fans to a brand new sound with Normani-featuring Dancing With A Stranger in January, the British singer-songwriter is continuing to shed his balladeer image on new single How Do You Sleep? The emotive track was crafted by Sam alongside hitmakers Max Martin, Savan Kotecha and ILYA – so it’s no surprise that it’s the kind of song that’ll be stuck in your head for weeks, and even has a dance break. “This year, both personally and musically, I feel...

Gregory Dillon has unveiled the music video for his nostalgic, 80s-inspired romantic banger, Where We’re Going. The stunning clip is interspersed with scenes of the rising retro pop star at a pop-up carnival (which he says happened by accident) and on a rooftop with his love interest as they watch the sunset. “We came across a pop-up carnival and immediately took it as a sign from the universe that we should commit to these beautiful rides,” Gregory told us of the...

That’s particularly true for creatives, who can use the more peaceful surroundings as a means to truly focus their minds. There’s a reason that iconic bands such as Queen were shipped off by record execs to the British countryside to work on new music, giving them time and space to cultivate fresh ideas and ultimately create groundbreaking material. In partnership with Cottages.com, GAY TIMES gave three different creatives the opportunity to retreat to a holiday home in the UK to...

The singer-songwriter is embroiled in a love affair in the new visual, with Canadian actress Michelle Doiron serving as her co-star. “It’s about being in a relationship but always arguing like crazy, throwing insults and fighting, but ultimately, no matter how insane it gets, you’d both rather lose your minds than lose each other,” Lots told us of the video. “Likewise, the video seems as though we oscillate between crazy and passionate, but we chose to stay together. However, by the...
