Young male singers are having a hard time keeping their clothes on lately. Last week we brought you the story of Nick Jonas stripping off his shirt and taking a selfie. But, this week singer Justin Bieber has seriously upped the ante.
TMZ released two photos Monday of Bieber in the buff. Warning these images are NSFW:
TMZis reporting that the photos were taken during Thanksgiving a few months after Bieber’s 18th birthday. He was with his family at his grandmother’s house in Toronto. Rumor has it that Bieber annoyed his family by oversleeping and he serenaded his granny in the nude to lighten the mood (that’s kinda weird).
It seems safe to assume that someone very close to Bieber took these photos. But, who gave them to TMZ? Did the singer’s PR team leak them as part of his macho reinvention?
Bieber was in Atlanta last weekend for a concert downtown. He stayed at the Four Seasons on 14th Street in Midtown while he was here.

By D. David Kinney For years Sears commercials have sold women’s clothes by inviting us to, “Come see the softer side of sears.” But, now they’re updating their slogan to: “Take Another Look.” Well, we did and they’ve gone from soft to rock hard. Check out this new product:
A FENUXE reader pointed out to us today that you can buy a leather collar, adjustable harness, and arm bands at Sears.com. Honestly, we were skeptical when they told us about it. But, we clicked the link and they were right. Sears is selling sexy.
The 4-piece set is part of Sears’ “ELEGANT MOMENTS” collection. And, we couldn’t agree more! This is definitely a very elegant moment. So, what category does Sears put their adjustable harness, arm bands, and leather collars in? Apparently they’re considering them underwear.
Naturally, we were curious. What other great men’s underwear items can you get from Sears’ “ELEGANT MOMENTS” collection?
Why not try out this leather collar with an “O” ring?
Or this leather pouch with an open front?

Since Vladimir Putin signed the ‘gay propaganda’ law, Russia’s LGBT community has faced rampant discrimination, prejudice, and violence.
The atrocities in Russia have rightfully caused an uproar in the gay community throughout the U.S. and the world. Many gay bars have chosen to boycott vodka brand Stolichnaya in an effort to express anger with the disgusting and discriminatory anti-gay laws in Russia. Gay hottie and sex columnist Dan Savage, who famously defined “santorum,” is leading the the #DumpStoli campaign.
The problem is that Stolichnaya is no longer a Russian vodka. It is a Dutch company whose parent company SPI Group is headquartered in Luxembourg. The vodka is actually made in Latvia. Furthermore, Stolichnaya is an avid supporter of the gay community – check out their video looking for the most original Stoli boy:
So, what’s the deal with Stoli? Is it really anti-gay to drink the vodka? What is the Russia connection? Here’s a little background on the company:
Stolichnaya was created in the Soviet Union during the 1940′s and quickly became an iconic national brand. It remained there until 1991 when the Soviet Union was dissolved. After the collapse Russian businessman Yuri Shefler purchased the rights to Stolichnaya from the Kremlin-controlled FKP Soyuzplodoimport for $400,000. He grew the business and made a fortune while doing so.
When Vladimir Putin came to power in 2000 he railed against Russia’s “new billionaires.” Putin viewed them as a threat to traditional Russian society claiming the billionaires had been stealing from the Russian people. Yuri Shefler was one of these billionaires and at one point Putin even threatened to throw Shefler in jail for selling his vodka. Shefler fled Russia to Western Europe and took Stolichnaya with him. Yuri Shefler still lives in exile in Western Europe.
So, for the past twelve years Stolichnaya has not been a Russian company. It’s a Dutch company with headquarters in Luxembourg and production facilities in Latvia.
But, the story doesn’t end there. Here are some additional facts to help muddy the water:
There are, in fact, two practically identical Stolichnaya brands. After Yuri Shefler left Russia, Putin decided to keep the popular Stoli name because the brand was such a strong national symbol. But, Putin’s Stoli is only sold in Russia. You’re not drinking Russian vodka if you’re drinking Stoli in America.
Yuri Shefler is still ethnically Russian, but he is a wanted man. The fact that he is a huge success outside Russia can only serve to further annoy Vladimir Putin.
It’s true; the bottle used to say “Russian Vodka” on it. The bottle doesn’t say it anymore (and it hasn’t for years). Now it says “Premium Vodka” instead.
As you can imagine Putin and Shefler have been fighting this legal battle for a while. What happens if Putin wins? The court in The Hauge has ruled that Stoli is indeed a Russian brand. Yet, all that means thus far is Putin can sell his own Stolichnaya (not Shefler’s) in three countries.
OK … if it’s fine to drink Stolichnaya (if it isn’t from Russia) that doesn’t help fight the terrible things happening to the gay community over there. So, what can you do? Instead of targeting a minor player, who is also persecuted by Russia, look at the bigger picture and apply pressure where it can do the most good. For instance, last December trade restrictions against Russia were lifted and normal trade conditions were implemented. Perhaps it is time to reinstate the restrictions because of Russia’s human rights violations!
Imagine a man waking up one morning and when he looks down he realizes he has breasts! Sounds like a scene out of a horror flick, but this is what happened to ABC News Editor Don Ennis.
About three months ago the respected ABC newsman announced that he was transgender. He also announced that after being trapped in the wrong body for years, he would now live as Dawn Stacey Ennis. He divorced his wife of seventeen years and underwent hormone therapy with the intention of transitioning to a woman.
Ennis’ decision was met with overwhelming support as he assured his co-workers, friends and family that this was neither ‘a game of dress-up nor make-believe’ – he wanted to live as a woman.
That is until Dawn woke up as Don three months later. He woke up convinced that the year was 1999, a year before he first felt trapped as a woman in man’s body. According to Ennis, a two-day bout of transient global amnesia erased his desire to live as a woman. He thought his wife was playing a cruel joke on him by replacing all his ID’s with female credentials and dressing him up in a wig and bra.
Now Dawn wants to be called Don again. He has mended his marriage and has issued another statement, including an email to his no doubt confused co-workers, saying that he was misdiagnosed and once again asks for their understanding and support.
Ennis was allegedly given female hormones as a child which he postulates led to his gender confusion. His mother wanted to keep him young looking because of a budding child acting opportunity. It didn’t keep him young; however, it did result in Don growing breasts.
Prior to his amnesia Ennis went to the National Institute of Health in Bethesda to find out why his body was obviously changing from male to female. It was here that he learned of his hormonal imbalance, which was treatable. But, he refused the treatment and came out as transgender.
By David Kinney Apparently Nick Jonas doesn’t want to be known as a little kid anymore. He’s 20-years-old now and he’s proud of his healthy and manly physique.
He was so proud he tweeted an Instagram selfie after working out at a gym in North Carolina. He was in the Tar Heel state for a concert in Raleigh. Who knew the youngest Jonas Brother had a body like this?
He sure took a good pic for something he “never” does. I wonder if that’s his Grindr pic … I mean he is currently rumored to be dating Miss Universe Oliva Culpo, 21. The Huffington Post reported that the two had dinner together in NYC last week.
Nick is finishing up the last leg of the “Jonas Brothers World Tour 2012/2013″ which brought him and his abs to Atlanta last weekend. Unfortunately, his abs didn’t make an appearance during the show.
By David Kinney Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva” is looking for a “yuppie gay” couple to be featured extras in the show. The scene is a dream sequence and (best of all) it’s a paid role! The shoot takes place August 8 and will last all day.
They’re particularly interested in men ages 22 – 36. Send a current picture of yourself and your boyfriend to Bill Marinella Casting with your clothing sizes and contact information.

It can be hard to be stylish and stay on a budget – which is why every week we search for the high-end items you want and their cheaper (we didn’t say knock-offs!) siblings.
Shoes are not only an inevitable and necessary part of our wardrobe, but also one of the strongest style statements you can make. Footwear has the ability to either make or break your entire look! Although it is always advisable to invest in good footwear there are limits as to just how much you should or would want to spend. Here are some great examples on how you can get great footwear for less money.
Burberry Coated Canvas Trainers, $375
The fashion trainers are sure to pep up any look, but at $375 most people would be almost scared to wear them outside the house!
H&M Sneakers, $39.95
These sneakers from H&M have the same yellow color and could be mistaken for a pair of Burberry shoes.
Prada Lace-ups, $1,100
Classic black lace-ups are a staple in a man’s closet, but even though these Prada’s are gorgeous there are many other things you could do with $1,100 – like pay rent for instance!
Zara Man Lace-Ups, $89
These classic shoes are only $89; you may not have them for life, but surely they’ll survive a formal event or twenty.
Salvatore Ferragamo High-Top Sneaker, $580
High-top sneakers are a fun way to dress up your jeans or even shorts. These sneakers from Salvatore Ferragamo are a whopping $580
Supra Wolf High-Top Sneaker, $100
At a $100 these Supras look almost identical and you won’t have to drop a ton of money for a quality pair of shoes.
Every guy should own a suit. Whether you wear one everyday to work or just have one hanging in the closet for special occasions it is a basic staple of a man’s wardrobe. The way a suite is cut makes you stand up a little straighter and its frame gives you an even greater masculine look because of the wide shoulders and the natural cut of the jacket, which created a flattering v-shape to your torso. Additionally, the straight-legged pant helps shape and elongate your legs. A suit also has the benefit of effectively concealing and flattening your stomach if you’re carrying a few extra pounds. So, it is important to buy a suit that actually fits you (or more accurately, a suit that is fitted to you).
Unfortunately, a common mistake many guys make is buying a suit that is too large. Some guys unintentionally do this because formal wear can feel a little confining than casual wear. Plus, many men wish to look stronger and choose a larger suit to emphasize this. One of the most famous examples of wearing an oversized suit comes from former President George W. Bush. His staple navy blue suit always seemed two sizes too big. His suits always looked like they’d been extended at least an inch over the shoulder, made broader at the waist, and the pants had too much fabric as if he had übermuscular and strong legs. Alas, the intention of making him seem bigger had the opposite effect, because he looked like he was trying to fill out a suit that was too big for him. This made him look smaller, even boyish sometimes.
A suit should be fitted to your body so it enhances your shoulders, creates a clear waistline, and a v-shape to your body (which a suit can create even if you don’t have a perfect v-shape). Also, the leg of the pant should not have too much fabric. You don’t want your pants to look like a floor-long skirt. If you’re in doubt about the fit of your suit have a professional tailor help you. It’s an extra cost, but doesn’t cost a fortune and you’ll look and feel so much better in a suit that fits you perfectly.
And remember, we are not talking slim-fitting tailoring here, but rather a suit that actually fits – there’s big difference!
So, what is freestyle football? It’s simple in concept, but incredibly hard to do. The object is to keep the ball in the air while doing wicked cool tricks with any part of your body. Henderson’s video was put on YouTube 10 days ago and had already been viewed over one million times.
Pretty cool, eh? Want to see Henderson do some more?
