Metro marry me man says yes

COOL STUFF, News Comments Off on Metro marry me man says yes

A gay man who proposed on the front page of 16 November 2010’s Metro newspaper is celebrating after his partner said yes.

Their engagement may have been overshadowed by Prince William and Kate Middleton, but before that story broke today this gay proposal had captured the attention of commuters across the UK.

Jon Mark Ireland was one of the winners of a competition to design the cover of the British free national paper and used it to pop the question to his boyfriend of almost five years, Ben Daniel Collins.

Ireland, 27, was worried Collins would miss seeing the paper that day despite being an avid Metro reader. But the 23-year-old spotted one under the arm of a fellow commuter on the London Underground and, seeing his own name, instantly panicked.

Reading the message he texted Ireland, jokingly promising “I’m going to kill you.”

But when they were able to speak a few hours later, Collins gave his partner a resounding “yes!”

Ireland said: “He said that he was a bit horrified to see his name but he was happy so it was a good job, I suppose.”

And he wasn’t bothered by William and Kate stealing their thunder. “Ben’s a royalist, he loves all that,” Ireland said.

He added that winning the competition and getting a yes from his partner had been “magical”.

The pair from Woodford, London are now considering tying the knot around the time of their fifth anniversary in May, perhaps at Kent’s spectacular Leeds Castle.

Metro, launched in 1999, is the UK’s third biggest daily national newspaper, read by an estimated 3.5 million people.

Ricky Martin comes out as gay: Twitter happy he’s ‘livin’ la vida open’

Entertainment, MUSIC & VIDEO Comments Off on Ricky Martin comes out as gay: Twitter happy he’s ‘livin’ la vida open’

Ricky Martin’s confirmation via Twitter that he is “a fortunate homosexual man” has the microblogging site’s users buzzing with the news about the singer’s coming-out as gay.

After years of batting away rumours about his sexuality, the general consensus in the social networking sphere is summed up by a post from user Krissy_Recodo: “Ricky Martin has the courage to admit that he’s gay.. yeah!.. for those men hiding their true identity.. shame!!!”

“What an unnecessary fuss over Ricky Martin,” tweets an underwhelmed pforpapa. “Really why does it matter to anyone other than him?!”

“Ricky Martin is livin’ la vida open,” chips in ClaudiaOnIce about Puerto Rican Ricky, who had women swooning with his performances of Livin’ la Vida Loca at the height of his fame in the 90s.

He revealed on Twitter – in a message posted in both English and Spanish – that writing his autobiography had showed him the importance of being true to himself.

“I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside,” he explained.

Martin, who became the father of twin boys born via a surrogate mother in 2008, stayed in the closet because he thought coming out would damage his career.

Ricky Martin comes out as gay: ‘I am a fortunate homosexual man’

HUNK, MUSIC & VIDEO Comments Off on Ricky Martin comes out as gay: ‘I am a fortunate homosexual man’

Ricky Martin has come out as gay, bringing to an end years of speculation about the singer’s sexuality.

In a message posted in both Spanish and English on his official website, the Livin’ La Vida Loca singer wrote: ‘I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.’

He says that the decision to come out was prompted by beginning the task of writing his memoirs, which he describes as ‘a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life.’

Martin, a father of two via a surrogate mother, also writes that he had been advised by people closest to him to not come out, but adds: ‘ Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage… To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where born with. Enough is enough. This has to change.’

He adds: ‘The word “happiness” takes on a new meaning for me as of today.’

Martin, whose sexuality has long been one of the less-well-kept secrets in showbiz, was briefly thought to have come out in June last year, when a Puerto Rican magazine claimed he had said that ‘his heart could belong to a woman or a man.’ However, the quote turned out to have been twisted somewhat by the magazine, and in fact just meant that Martin refused to talk about it.

Ajaxx63 presents its new designs for this summer in a most original way. In fact, they don’t really show them at all. Unlike previous campaigns, this one doesn’t talk about the great fit of the Ajaxx63 tee’s, or the high quality of the product, or the catchy gay-targeted graphics. What it does show however is that each item you can find in the Ajaxx63 collection is the perfect item to define your personal style. Whether you wear them as presented here, or in a more conventional way with only a few holes to stick your head and arms through, for sure you will have success wearing your Ajaxx63 shirt. If not by the often ambiguous graphics and printed text, then for sure by the athletic fit. No wonder Ajaxx63 t-shirts are the new banners of today’s gay culture.

Photography by Gabriel Goldberg.

From Ajaxx63 Blog:  Due to overwhelming demand and interest, I am putting up more of the pics from our summer 2008 ad campaign photo shoot by Gabriel Goldberg. Let me start by saying, I love this campaign! Gabriel captured exactly what was going on inside my head to create a splash for summer 2008. What I didn’t expect was just how much guys would react to the images. Most guys love it, love the model and love the way we choose to represent our company in a fashion ad campaign. (About 95% love it) Well, then there is the other 5% that are confused by it or think it is a bad way to sell t-shirts, ” they are all ripped up….who would want ripped up t-shirts like that?” “is this fashion or 80’s porn?” “You are blatently using sex to sell clothes” etc. My goal was to generate interest in the ajaxx63 fashion image not on a particular shirt per say so this has gone far beyond my goal. We do get asked about 2 times a day for the ripped up shirts though, and I have to admit, its not a bad idea.

Kate Perry has smooched her way to the top spot in the charts with her faux-lesbian single I Kissed A Girl.
The US singer’s song has sparked debate and divided opinion.

YouTube Preview Image

Her lyrics describe the guilty pleasure of a girl who, despite having a boyfriend, kisses another woman while drunk on a night out.

Some people in the gay community have claimed that lyrics – such as ‘It’s not what good girls do, not how they should behave’ – are demeaning.

Others have described another of the 23-year-old’s songs, Ur So Gay, as homophobic because she accuses an ex-boyfriend of acting ‘gay’, although he is straight. However, many of her fans said they did not think she was being serious but just singing catchy pop tunes.

I Kissed A Girl has also caused controversy in the US where singer Jill Sobule had a 1995 hit with the same name.

She said: ‘I don’t feel precious about the title, but I’ve gotten tons of e-mails from annoyed fans.’ Perry’s song, penned by 1990s popstar Cathy Dennis, yesterday climbed from No.4 to knock off Kid Rock’s All Summer Long from the No.1 spot.

The Prophecy, a unique digital project created by Aymeric Giraudel for Beautifulmag and brought to you by BeautifulMag on January 21st 2008.
Visit for the latest updates and on The Prophecy.

This video’s background is “the Beast WithinMarie Kairu’s singing (beautiful voice) and Madonna’s reading a verse of the Bible.

I have to say this is a picture of an incredible beauty. It is impressive, stunning. It must be seen absolutely. Very beautiful video,technically perfect. Love the incredible handle of images and creativity. Have some close look:

All through history there have been men and women with visionary ideas, that provoked a lot of protest of less adventurous people. When the first photographs came to existence, people looked upon it with doubt and anxiety. When digital photography came to existence, this technology too was baulked at. Little did we know that digital photography would become a new art and bring to life a society of modern magicians. And Aymeric Giraudel is a magicians master.

It took over 7 months of work and 35 different models – both amateurs and professionals – and many, many shots to create the incredible dynamic poses, to bring The Prophecy to life. It has become a work full of symbolism, sensation and emotion. Dynamic action that all concentrates around one character who, in a matter of speaking, ascents from the clashing human behavior, and becomes a personification from true beauty, like a phoenix from the flames.

Aymeric Giraudel’s work are captures of his dreams and visions of the future. Full of symbolism and surreal situations. Each piece that finds its origin in Aymeric’s creative brain tells us a story. He created The Prophecy specially for you, as a free high resolution download:




But be nice, if you want to use it for commercial purpose, ask Beautifulmag’s permission to do so.

If this wonderful project has triggered your curiosity about this talented man, please visit the two part interview Beautiful had with Aymeric last year February: Digital Wizard Part 1 and Digital Wizard Part 2. Aymeric Giraudel is a man with a vision and the talent to visualize it.
