Izak Davel sings for the gays
The runner-up in last year’s Mamba Sexiest Man of the Year poll, Izak Davel, is setting his sights on a musical career. Following the latest Hollywood trend of actors taking to the recording studio, the yummy Egoli actor-turned singer released his debut Afrikaans CD titled Ken Jy My? this week. We haven’t heard it yet, but he previewed two songs last weekend at a surprise performance at Pretoria gay club, Legends.
An insider told us that 24 year old Izak was very professional when he came in for his sound check, sang live, and actually did rather well on stage. Despite the album forming part of a three-year, three album contract, he will continue to act in Egoli – at least for the moment. At Mamba Mansions we’re pleased that Izak’s new ambitions haven’t interfered with his commitment to go shirtless in his promotional pictures, as evidenced by this new photo we received.
She’s all yours girls! Lesbian Hollywood A-lister, Jodie Foster, has reportedly ended her 14 year relationship with girlfriend Cydney Bernard. That’s according to the National Enquirer, which quotes a source as saying “She and Cydney have been together for so many years and have two children together – the potential fallout and legal wrangling from this could be monumental.” It’s unclear what led to the break-up, but Jodie only publicly discussed the relationship for the first time four months ago at an awards ceremony when thanking “My beautiful Cydney, who sticks by me through all the rotten and the bliss.” Well, perhaps she spoke too soon. We hope the girls manage to sort things out and keep the family together.
RuPaul gets a job
We’re not really sure what drag performer RuPaul has been up to for the last few years, but we’re happy that he seems to be putting himself out there again. First he starred in last year’s low-budget underground flick Starrbooty, and is now planning on invading people’s living rooms once more. Logo, the US gay TV channel, will debut a new reality series next year titled RuPaul’s Drag Race, for which the Amazonian star will be the host and judge. The six part series will also see viewers voting to decide on “America’s next superstar drag queen.” We can’t wait!
Sex and the City premieres in…uhh…London?
Well it doesn’t make any sense to us either, but the world premiere of the Sex and the City movie took place in London on Monday. Seeing as New York is the unofficial fifth member of the cast, we expected the momentous event to take place in the Big Apple. Nevertheless all four stars attended what was described by one newspaper as the largest-ever film premiere in London; thanks to the thousands of screaming fans who showed up.
While the gals all looked fabulous, Sarah Jessica Parker left us bemused and decidedly uncertain over her choice to wear what seemed like a green pineapple on her head. Kim Cattrall, on the other hand, was wearing her best Botox-stunned expression for the occasion. Reviews of the film have been mixed, but we can’t wait for the local premiere later this month. Mamba will of course be there…
Agg shame, Posh is only loved by the gays
Oh, it really is hard being a gorgeous, famous and obscenely wealthy woman who is married to one of the world’s most desired men. Victoria Beckham is apparently terribly unloved – other than by gay men. Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the singer (“cough-cough”) and fashion plate said that straight men just don’t seem to find her attractive anymore. “All the men that like me are gay. It’s true.” Pass the box of tissues… She went on to add, “I do love gay men though.” So do we sweetie, so do we…
Shock as Colin Farrell wastes away..
Colin Farrell is literally half the man he used to be. “Horrified” doesn’t quite describe how shocked we felt on seeing the latest photos of the once hunky actor. In fact, at first we refused to even believe that the pictures were of him at all. The frail and gaunt-looking Irish star was snapped in Spain while shooting a film in which he plays the role of a traumatised Bosnian war photographer. It’s unclear whether his dramatic weight lose is for the role or due to health issues, but either way we pray he’s consulting medical experts. Let’s just hope that this isn’t the start of some kind of ‘manorexia’ trend in Hollywood.
Jesse is NOT gay, okay?
We’re now regretting highlighting washed up actor Jesse Metcalfe in the last issue of this column. It seems the admittedly hunky star does not like being called gay – as if it were some kind of insult. It’s been reported by contactmusic.com that when Perez Hilton joked with Jesse about him being gay, he angrily threatened to murder the gossip blogger. “That was quite negative energy. He was drunk and said he wanted me dead. I was quite shocked. I’d only joked that he might be gay, what’s the big deal?” said Perez (who bizarrely has just launched a clothing line). Perhaps the actor doth protest a little too much? Hmmm?
