Keiynan Lonsdale’s One Month Post-Coming Out Journey

When you’re someone in the LGBTQ community, it’s terrifying to come out to close friends and family members, but for a television star, your relationships with others are not the only things at stake as you come out to the world. Only a month ago, on May 12th, The Flash actor Keiynan Lonsdale came out on Instagram, after becoming “bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared,” revealing that he is bisexual in a heartfelt post saying, “I like girls, & I like guys (yes)” Let’s take a look at how his decision has impacted his life so far.

 

Only days after coming out, Google search of “Keiynan Lonsdale” became filled with news articles about his coming out Instagram post. The post was covered by news organizations including E! News, People.com, Entertainment Tonight, and even Daily Mail. On May 22nd, 10 days after coming out, Lonsdale was interviewed by BUILD Series’ Matt Forte about the CW series, The Flash, and Lonsdale was asked how he felt during the moments leading up to coming out. He said,

 

“Honestly at the time, I did it all based off of feeling and I really wasn’t even thinking that much, which was kinda nice, because it is something that I’ve been thinking about for as long as I can remember, so it was sort of…I don’t know…it was actually really relaxing (laughs) which is something I never thought I’d be able to say about the topic, but yeah! It felt good. It was very freeing.”

 

On June 2nd, he was featured on Vulkan Magazine and he was interviewed about his character on The Flash, then he was interviewed by Fuse on June 5th.

 

Since he came out, his acting career has been on the rise along with his popularity.  On June 12th, 2017, news updates Twitter account for the book-to-film adaptation of Becky Albertalli’s Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, @simonvsfilm announced Keiynan Lonsdale will be playing the character Bram Greenfeld, a friend and classmate of Simon, he will star in the film alongside Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner, Colton Haynes and other stars.

 

Lonsdale is on hiatus from filming The Flash, but he has been busy focusing on his other love besides acting, which is singing. He performed live at the Roxy on May 19th with musical artist Louis Futon. On June 5th, he spoke to Fuse and said that he had been writing and recording music.

 

 “Hopefully there will be a summer release, but we haven’t set a date yet.”

 

He continued,

 

“I tried to set a date before and then we sort of have to come together and figure out like no we needed to make sure everything was creatively right, so I’m not setting a date until we know for sure.“

 

With everything looking up for him, he is looking at a busy year ahead. He wrote another instagram post for pride on June 12th, exactly a month after he came out, describing how his life has changed for the better,

 

“I can’t express enough how my life/perspective has exploded with colour since choosing to simply be myself. I apply it to all aspects of my life, not just sexuality, it’s bigger than that. When you’re free to be yourself, you make so much room in your fucking mind to be more creative, to love better, to feel better, to think more clearly.. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made.. but also the hardest. I don’t take it lightly, I never will.”

 

The post already gained 27,439 likes within a day.

 

It’s been quite impressive to see how different aspects of Keiynan Lonsdale’s public life were enhanced simply because he was brave enough to be true to himself and show the world a part of himself he wasn’t even ready accept long ago. He has already accomplished so much with his life within a month. One could only imagine what he could do in a year.

 

The Flash season 4 premieres on October 10th, 2017. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is set to be in movie theatres on March 16, 2018.

Since he came out, his acting career has been on the rise along with his popularity. Click To Tweet

Stephen Amell tried the “American Ninja Warrior” course

The superhero TV show Arrow’s star Stephen Amell ran the American Ninja Warrior course for NBC’s Red Nose Day Special, raising money for Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and it was amazing.

 

Fans of Arrow have seen Amell engage in hand-to-hand combat with superheros, ninjas, and other villans, and done stunts that are crazier than the American Ninja Warrior course, therefore it was no surprise that Amell ran through the course like he could’ve done it in his sleep.

According to Comicbook.com, he spoke to fans at London’s Heroes & Villans FanFest, revealing that it wasn’t as easy as he made it look and he even thought he had injured himself.

 

 “I thought I tore my biceps off of the bone in the second obstacle. I couldn’t feel anything from there to there.”

 

Amell said,

 

“I think, all things considered, it went pretty well.”

 

He talked about the part he was most worried about,

 

“I was worried about the blocks that rotate when you run past them because they say, ‘Don’t worry if they’re tilted off to the side or if they’re level. Just hit the middle and go as fast as you can,’

 

He continued,

 

“What you get is a great idea, except when they’re tilted the wrong way and they’re over water!”

 

Stephen Amell’s attempt on American Ninja Warriors was really inspiring for actors, athletes, or fitness enthusiasts alike. Despite being a superhero on TV, Amell is just a man, and therefore his athletic ability shown by what he was able to accomplish on the obstacle course is achievable for anyone through hard work and dedication.

Jennifer Morrison leaves Once Upon a Time

As Once Upon a Time wraps up its storyline for the last 6 seasons in the season finale this Sunday, it prepares to start season 7 with a brand new storyline and characters. Some of the original cast members might leave the show after the current season. Jennifer Morrison, who plays Emma Swan, has announced season 6 would be her last season on the show.

Morrison wrote in an Instagram post,

 

 “After very careful consideration, I have decided that creatively and personally, it is time for me to move on. Emma Swan is one my favorite characters that I have ever played. My 6 years on ONCE UPON A TIME has changed my life in the most beautiful ways.”

However, the season 6 finale will not be the last time we see Emma Swan. Morrison has agreed to appear as a guest star in one episode of season 7 if it is renewed.

 

Regarding Morrison’s exit, series creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis says,

 

“The past six years of collaborating with Jennifer as Emma Swan have been truly magical. Watching her breathe life into Emma, she accomplished more than we could have dreamed possible — she gave life to a brand-new Disney Princess, filled with strength and intelligence and an incredible closet full of red leather jackets. We’ll miss seeing her every day, but her imprint upon Once Upon a Time is indelible. She will always be a part of the show and its heart and soul.  That said, just because Jennifer won’t be back every week doesn’t mean we won’t see our savior again.”

 

According to Deadline.com, season 7 of Once Upon a Time will center on Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle, Colin O’Donoghue and The Walking Dead‘s Andrew J. West. Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas and Jared Gilmore haven’t been confirmed to return to the show.

 

The show will not be the same without the savior, and if Goodwin, Dallas and Gilmore don’t return, the show would lose 4 of its original cast members.  The audience has to watch the season 6 finale to find out how they will set up season 7 to deal with the major cast shake up.

HARRY STYLES’ First Solo Debut Performance on SNL (VIDEO)

After One Direction split up in January 2016, Harry Styles has been hinting at the release of his first solo album for awhile. Last week, Styles announced through Instagram that his album will be released on May 12th, 2017. Last Saturday night, Harry Styles appeared on Saturday Night Live as a musical guest alongside guest host Jimmy Fallon for an episode of laughs and fun, and he performed his new song as a solo artist for the first time on stage since the band split up.

 

He sang two songs on the show, “Sign of the Times” and “Ever Since New York.” Because of his exit from the band, his music now is very different than the songs he used to sing. In a Rolling Stone interview, he talked about the meaning behind the song “Sign of the Times,”

“Most of the stuff that hurts me about what’s going on at the moment is not politics, it’s fundamentals … Equal rights. For everyone, all races, sexes, everything. ’Sign of the Times’ came from ‘This isn’t the first time we’ve been in a hard time, and it’s not going to be the last time.’ The song is written from a point of view as if a mother was giving birth to a child and there’s a complication. The mother is told, ‘The child is fine, but you’re not going to make it.’ The mother has five minutes to tell the child, ‘Go forth and conquer.’”

 

Obviously, this style of music is very different from songs like “What Makes You Beautiful” or “Live While We’re Young.”

 

Other than his solo musical debut, it was his first time acting on screen as well. He dressed up and acted as Mick Jagger during SNL’s “Celebrity Family Feud: Time Travel Edition” segment and it was a very spot on imitation. He also acted as a civil war soldier and sang a bit during their civil war segment.

 

We’re so excited to hear the rest of the album and see the change of his music style after his exit from One Direction.

TLC turned to Kickstarter to fund their “last and final album.” To date, they’ve raised more than $430,000. It will be the group’s first LP solely featuring T-Boz and Chilli. Member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died in 2002, seven months before their previous 3D album was released.

With all the excitement buzzing about TLC’s new single, the groups fifth album has yet to be named. Therefore, Tionne and Chilli are looking to their fans for inspiration. If you have a hot name for the groups new album, then visit their Kickstarter page  and type your suggestion in the comment section.

Fans have been waiting for years for a new album and the group has delivered. Check out the lyrics to “Way Back,” then listen to the single that has the internet oozing. Get into it below!

Way Back Lyrics:

[ T-Boz] It’s been a long, long time comin’
Ain’t seen you around
Time keeps on passin’
But you still my bitch
Can’t tell us nothin’
And it’s nothin’ but a thing, to pick up where we left off (yeah)
[Chilli]

Don’t you ever think
Back on all that other shit we went through
You know I remember (yeah)
Don’t you ever wish
One day we could reminisce
It feels like, we were just together
Cause we go way back

[Hook] Like Prince and Marvin Gaye
Like South side on Sunday
Some things don’t ever change
Yeah, you and me
Cause we go way back
James Brown and Michael J
Like them high school parties
Some things don’t ever change
Yeah, you and me
We go way back

 

[Snoop] Twistin’ up a twenty sack
Fishin’, listen, reminiscin’ bout the days of way back
Aye, where the ladies at?
I need a fine one, top designer
Baby can you help find one?
A real one, not a phony, I wanna homie
Never leave me lonely, be my tenderoni
When our photo together, take a few flicks together, that’ll last forever
Whether, we do, you do? me too
See through it all, now creep with the Dogg
Don’t let the rain drops stop ya, I got ya
This is so evolutionary proper
Now what the future holds, no one knows
But the past is a blast, game overload
It’s like Good Times, my favorite episodes
I’m just the same OG, givin’ y’all a little TLC

 

[ T-Boz] I’d like to think, when we were growin’ (growin’)
And shit got tough, we kept it goin’ (goin’)
Out in the streets, no signs of slowin’ (yeah)
It’s still nothin’ but a thing, to pick up where we left off (yeah)

 

[Chilli] Don’t you ever think
Back on all that other shit we went through
You know I remember (yeah)
Don’t you ever wish
One day we could reminisce
It feels like, we were just together
Cause we go way back

 

[Hook] Like Prince and Marvin Gaye
Like South side on Sunday
Some things don’t ever change
Yeah, you and me
Cause we go way back
James Brown and Michael J
Like them high school parties
Some things don’t ever change
Yeah, you and me

 

[Bridge] We go way back
Way back, way back, way back, way back (yeah)
Cause we go way back
Way back, way back, way back, way back
We go way back

[Hook] Like Prince and Marvin Gaye
Like South side on Sunday
Some things don’t ever change
Yeah, you and me
Cause we go way back

The Baby Effect – Liam Payne and Cheryl’s baby!

Watch out Directioners and One Direction fans, there’s a new addition to the One Direction family! No, he won’t be playing in the band…just yet. Liam Payne’s girlfriend, singer Cheryl, announced on Saturday in an Instagram post that she had given birth to a baby boy on March 22nd.

She posted a super cute picture of Payne holding the baby, and wrote besides it,

“On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever.”

Payne responded on Instagram,

“My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow! I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far. I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!”

Now that the baby boy has been born, Cheryl and Payne are planning on a secret small wedding. Well, Cheryl is. According to OK! Magazine, Cheryl doesn’t want a huge wedding because it will be her third one. She would just want their close friends and family members to be there and have the baby on their laps in the wedding photos. However, according to Closer, Liam would want a huge celebration and he would want to shout about their wedding from the rooftop. Well, maybe he could do that privately on their own roof if he couldn’t persuade Cheryl to make it a big wedding.

The baby has definitely won hearts, just like Cheryl wrote on her instagram post. Other than the millions of fans worldwide who continue giving the couple a lot of support and good vibes, Payne’s family members shared their love for the baby on social media as well. Liam Payne’s mother, Karen Payne, wrote in an Instagram post,

“Finally I can boast that I am a grandmother! The happiest grandmother! I’m very proud of my children. Everything I’ve been doing lately is crying, because I’m very happy, now I have the most beautiful grandson in the world….Thanks God.”

Liam’s older sister Nicola Payne tweeted about the baby,

“What a lovely day today has been!!! I honestly didn’t know love at first sight until today. Xx”

As to how the baby’s doing so far, Payne tweeted only a while ago,

“When the fourth nappy happens in 5 minutes,”

with a gif of Ross from Friends shouting,

“No! No! No!”

so we know the baby is enjoying making Payne or Cheryl work hard for him right now, and he should enjoy it because later on he’s going to be the one working hard learning everything about this new life and how to succeed in it.

We wish Cheryl and Liam Payne all the best in taking good care of this beautiful baby boy and giving him all the love he deserves.

Teen Wolf actor Colton Haynes and his boyfriend Jeff Leatham are engaged! As their beautiful and cute engagement instagram pictures make everyone jealous, let’s see the amazing way it happened.

According to Leatham’s instagram account, they’ve been on vacation in Mexico, spending time in a beachside resort with spectacular ocean views. A few days before the proposal, he reposted a picture of a nice pool with many rose pedals on the surface, with the caption,

“Pre weekend #TeamLeatham Vibes – Sexy Romantic Nights – Destinations – Making memories.”

One night, Leatham brought Haynes onto the beach. It has been beautifully lit with candles and there was a big screen on the sand. You could imagine Haynes’ surprise when Cher’s face pops up and sings “I got you babe” from her 1989 song, It was a short but nice video Cher made for this special occasion, which Leatham shared on instagram afterwards. Right after she sang, Leatham got down on one knee and proposed, then Haynes said yes!

Haynes’ engagement ring is 10 Karats. According to Haynes’ tweet, Jeffrey said to him,

“10 Karats for my perfect 10.”

After all the support and celebratory messages from his fans, Haynes wrote on instagram,

“Overwhelmed by all of the love & support y’all have been sending @jeffleatham & I on our engagement. The fact that so many people love love as much as we do is truly inspiring and I feel so humbled. Who woulda thought that a lil ole kansas boy would meet a country boy from Utah & embark on journey that truly feels like one in the movies? I wish the same for everyone out there. No matter who you love…don’t be afraid to love hard 🙂 #whatmoviesaremadeof #LoveWins

Haynes only came out last year, after checking into rehab for anxiety and stepping away from his role on both Teen Wolf and Arrow. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said,

“I asked to step away because I cared more about my mental and physical health than my career at the time. I’ve had terminal anxiety my entire life. Physically ill, fainting. I’m 27 years old, and I have an ulcer. I had to step back.”

Haynes’ best friend Ally Maki posted on her instagram after FaceTiming with Haynes about the engagement,

“Colt this is the moment!! Over a decades worth of our sleepovers and made up songs, all night wine sessions talking about love and Adele singalongs all leading up to this very moment. I’m so happy for you my angel. So happy that you found someone who completes you and fills your heart in a way no one else can. Jeff you are family to us now but have been from the start. Thank you for showing him what true love feels like and proving that it exists. You have truly changed his life! So excited to see the journey of where your amazing bond of love takes you both. Love you both so very much!!!”

We’re very happy to hear about Colton Haynes and Jeff Leatham’s engagement, and we sincerely hope this has brought some peace in Haynes’ life as he continues to deal with terminal anxiety. We’ll be waiting for those super cute wedding pictures!

Beyoncé won the Best Urban Contemporary Album at last nights 59th Grammy award show. She graced the stage wearing all gold from head to toe as she elegantly embraced her pregnant belly and with poise, she articulated her heartfelt speech:

Thank you to the Grammy voters for this incredible honor. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to beautifully capture the profundity of deep southern culture. I thank God for my family; my wonderful husband, my beautiful daughter, my fans for bringing me so much happiness and support. We all experience pain and loss and often we become inaudible. My intention for the film and album was to create a body of work that will give a voice to our pain. Our struggles. Our darkness and our history.  To confront issues that make us uncomfortable.

 

It’s important to me to show images to my children that reflect their beauty so they can grow up in a world where they look in the mirror; first to their own families as well as the news, the Super Bowl, the Olympics, the White House and the Grammys and see themselves and have no doubt that their beautiful, intelligent and capable. This is something I want for every child of every race and I feel its vital that we learn from the past and recognize our tendencies to repeat our mistakes. Thank you again for honoring Lemonade. Have a beautiful evening. Thank you for tonight. This is incredible.

I feel its vital that we learn from the past and recognize our tendencies to repeat our mistakes.… Click To Tweet
