If you have a radio… and the ability to hear… then you undoubtedly have heard “All About That Bass” at least TWENTY FOUR times already. You can’t help it that you know the chorus word for word. And you can’t also help that you are humming it right now. It has become the song of the Summer and basically the song of my life. Between Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda,” anything by Iggy Azalea, and Meghan Trainor… this has been quite the voluptuous year of the booty!
So what’s Miss Meghan Trainor got up her sleeves for us next? Could the cupcake loving Princess of Booty Doo Wop Pop (TM) follow up her “All About That Bass” smash? Sure. Why not!
“Dear Future Husband” is Meghan’s follow up single and it is just as tongue-in-cheek as her first single. The song has that same retro-pop vibe as her debut single and it’s just as refreshing. How could we not love this woman when she writes lyrics like these…
“You got that 9 to 5 / Okay but so do I / So don’t be thinking I’ll be home and making apple pie / ’cause I never learned to cook.”
“I’ll be sleeping on the left side of the bed / Open doors for me and you might get some… kisses.”
Now this is the type of girl I want to hangout with! Put on a blonde wig, pillow fight, dance on the bed, and make fun of Sandra Dee – that blonde bimbo.
Don’t you love her latest song? Let us know below.

What does a national and major retail store do after being boycotted by anti-gay organization because of signing a legal brief supporting marriage equality? Does it succumb to the pressure of a boycott and withdraw its inclusive stance? Or does it show the proverbial middle finger to those organizations that do not support basic equality by rubbing their argument in their faces? The last is exactly the case with Target, the red dot retailer, that had anti-gay organizations like The National Organization for Marriage, the Liberty Counsel and American Decency Association saying that the company’s public support of same-sex marriage was “slap in the face to millions of pro-family customers.” The so-called pro-family organizations urged a massive boycott of Target. Now, less than a month later of signing the equality legal brief that backed dissolving the ban on same-sex marriage in Indiana and Wisconsin, Target sends a very clear message to the gay haters by launching a national ad campaign promoting their ‘Made To Matter’ hand-picked products that showcases a gay couple and their kid.
The ad campaign is backed by a quote from Target Executive Vice President of Human Resources Jodee Kozlak, who wrote on the company’s blog: “It is our belief that everyone should be treated equally under the law, and that includes rights we believe individuals should have related to marriage.”
Now we get to see if an actual anti-gay boycott will manifest itself on Target’s financial bottom line, because this counter measure ought to have those anti-gay bigots stay far, far away from Target (wouldn’t that be nice?). One thing is certain, though: Target’s got my buck!

Get ready for a little more heat in these final days of summer! As fall approaches, September is sizzling with the release of XELLE’s music video for their new single “Sweat.” Everyone knows XELLE as the girl group who threw that illegal dance party on a mobile NYC subway train. Well, the dance floor divas are back and ready to get down and dirty with their new hit song.
According to band member, Rony G, “It’s what’s playing in your mind when you see that hot guy or girl across the bar and you know it’s time to make a move.” Rony’s other musical half JC Cassis adds, “It is all about flirting, feeling sexy and confident, and giving in to your romantic desires.”
All of those sentiments are evident when you watch the electrifying video, which is a parody of late-night eighties fitness infomercials and those outrageous fitness classes that make you wonder who in their right would subject themselves to such frivolity.
Drag stars Bianca Del Rio, Sherry Vine and Marti Gould Cummings even make surprise guest appearances.
Watch the video below to get your “Sweat” on!
