  1. Jason Mraz opens up about his sexuality.



     


    Jason Mraz opens up about his sexuality.


     


    [adinserter block="1"]


     


    For Pride Month, Mr. Mraz penned a love letter to the LGBTQ community. In the final lines, he wrote “We still have a long way to go. / But know I am bi your side.”


    BI your side. Slick.


    If you've been following JM for a minute, you'd know this. He told Genre magazine in 2005 that he was “bisexually open-minded.”


    Billboard posted a new interview with Mraz today, and he doubles down.


     


    [adinserter block="2"]


     


    "I’ve had experiences with men, even while I was dating the woman who became my wife," he said. Mraz married his second wife, Christina Carano, in 2015.


    "It was like, 'Wow, does that mean I am gay?' And my wife laid it out for me. She calls it 'two-spirit,' which is what the Native Americans call someone who can love both man and woman. I really like that."


    Let me get this straight (heh): did he just admit to cheating on his wife early on with a man? Does that mean people who are attracted to one sex are 'one-spirit?' What do the Native Americans have to say about that? Asking for a friend.


     


    [adinserter block="3"]


     


    As NewNextNow points out, that term is actually a bit problematic. "Though Mraz likes the term two-spirit, it’s worth noting that the label is unique to the Native American community and carries huge cultural and spiritual significance. Those who aren’t Native American are generally discouraged from self-identifying as such."


    Regardless, call me, king.

  2. If you would have told me the entire video was Troye and Ari dancing together, I would have believed you.



     


    Troye Sivan and Ariana Grande's new video for "Dance To This" has arrived.


    If you would have told me the entire video was Troye and Ari dancing together, I would have believed you.

    Bebe Rexha is sent away in her new video for "I'm A Mess."


     


    [adinserter block="1"]


     


    I can see why people will perceive the pop star's latest Expectations visual as problematic.


    'It's 2018 and she's glamorizing mental illness.'


    That's accurate, but I personally find the video to be her best yet. I can see how those two things are unrelated.


     


    [adinserter block="2"]


     


    In the clip, Bebe has a breakdown and is taken to an institution where she partakes in a choreographed dance with her fellow committed patients. YIKES, but she serves budget. I'm conflicted.

  4. Hey guys. I'm Jordan Miller, owner/operator of BreatheHeavy.com. :qtbrit:

    Every day, people message/email me inquiring how they can become a writer on BH. There's genuinely awesome people out there that deserve to get featured, and it sparked an idea.

    In the last month, we started featuring more of members' threads on the main page of BreatheHeavy.com, and the response FAR surpassed all expectation! 

    Many of the threads linked on the main page are Britney-related, but I'd love to spark that same kind of interest with other artists and drive more users to the Pop Music News section.

     

    WHY DOES THIS MATTER?

    1.) It's a great opportunity for your threads to be seen and heard by literally HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people. You can influence a wave in the pop music ocean. 

    2.) It will encourage NEW readers to sign up and comment and grow our ever-expanding family.  :mhm:

     

    WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

    Simple: post newsworthy content!

    If you're interested in having a thread featured on the main page, post an item that you feel is worth talking about (you must be a registered member). Think, 'would people be interested in commenting on this?'

    You can write an article like how we do on the main page, post a Tweet/IG/FB post from an artist etc and if we dig it we'll link readers to it using our social platform of more than 250,000 followers (in addition to the thousands that visit the main page). 

     

    Looking forward to opening up BH to YOU, because YOU are the reason BH is still standing after 14 years. :kiss:

    Taylor Swift drops by the Electric Lady Studios in New York City today (July 18), the same studio Lady Gaga frequently records at.


     


    [adinserter block="1"]


     


    She snapped! Swift is in the midst of her Reputation stadium tour, but it appears the pop star already has her sights set on recording new music.


    Paparazzi photographed T Swift leaving the Electric Lady Studios in the Big Apple on Wednesday.


     


    [adinserter block="2"]


     


    Sound familiar? Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus have also recently recorded there.


    Naturally, the Internet immediately started speculating that the "Delicate" crooner has something in the works with Mother Monster. 


    The 2019 "Lady Marmalade" is coming!

  6. Who run the world? Beyonce.



     


    Who run the world? Beyonce.


     


    [adinserter block="1"]


     


    If you thought Queen Bey would settle down after the On The Run II tour with JAY-Z, think again.


    It appears Beyonce is ready to fly solo again and has already begun mapping out her 2019. Nope, we're not even including her role in the new Lion King movie and soundtrack. 


    BeyonceTribe.it claims Live Nation recently started scouting out stadiums in Latin America for the Lemonade singer to perform at in 2019. There's obviously no confirmation of a new album, but it's safe to assume she wouldn't kickoff another stadium tour without new music.


     


    [adinserter block="2"]


     


    Speaking of... a separate report claims Bey has plans to shoot a music video at The Colosseum in Rome some time this year. The Huffington Post in Italy says she wanted to book it for filming this past July 7th and 8th, but the deadline was too soon. Fortunately,  the Ministry of Cultural Heritage is willing to still make something work. Phew!


    But not so fast... It could very well be that Bey wants to create another historical-themed visual off Everything Is Love. You may recall she and JAY shot the "Ape--t" vid at The Louvre. I'm holding out for the new visual album.


    Imagine if Beyonce got the gang back together again.

  7. Zayn's new song "Sour Diesel" is groovy rock & roll.



     


    Zayn's new song "Sour Diesel" is groovy rock & roll.


     


    [adinserter block="1"]


     


    Alright Zayn, we get it... you smoke, but I can't hate on "Sour Diesel." It's my favorite track from the singer in a minute, and I've thoroughly jammed to most of his recent-releases.


    Zayn teamed up with Mind Of Mine collaborator Malay for the track.


    On it, Z shows off his vocal gymnastics over a plunky guitar melody and funky production. It's unlike anything out right now (in a good way).

    "Walks in the place, hands on her waist / Gun on her thigh, big shooter game," he croons. "She did this before, murdered to gain / Promised her ma she won't kill again."


    Zayn rarely promotes or performs, which is a real shame because "Sour Diesel" deserves as much attention as possible.

    UPDATE: You can watch the video as well exclusively on Apple Music.

  8. Or is she?



     


    MTV will honor Missy Elliott at the VMAs this year with the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.


     


    [adinserter block="1"]


     


    I feel very conflicted. This is Xtina's year; I had my had heart set on her receiving this! However...  I can't hate on Missy getting it instead. She's had some of the most incredible songs/videos that I still get my life to.

    The most recent recipients include Britney Spears (2011), Justin Timberlake (2013), Beyonce (2014), Kanye West (2015), Rihanna (2016) and Pink (2017).


    Justice for Xtina, but stoked for Missy!


     


    UPDATE: Well, this is awkward. Missy says she is NOT getting the Vanguard Award. Perhaps there's just a big, HUGE miscommunication?

    It's a comeback!


    Ciara dropped her new lead single today (July 17). It's titled "Level Up," a furious and frenetic dance floor-ready banger that encourages you to get out your seat and twerk.


     


    [adinserter block="2"]


     


    If the monstrous beat and Ciara's seductive lyrics don't inspire you to move, give the visual a spin.


    In it, Cici and her girls dance like they're making love (you see what I did there?). It'll make your body feel things, and if none of this does you're probably a monster.

  10. 5, 4, 3 2 1 Ciara is back!



     


    5, 4, 3 2 1 Ciara is back!


     


    [adinserter block="1"]


     


    The singer's new song "Level Up," the first taste off Ciara's Jackie followup, hit Spotify ahead of schedule today (the official release is slated for Wednesday, July 18). It's not available in the U.S. right now, but that'll change at midnight local time.


    On the J.R. Rotem-produced track (Britney Spears "Everybody," Panic! At The Disco's "Don't Threaten Me With A Good Time," Gwen Stefani's "Naughty," Charlie Puth's "Dangerously"), Ciara kicks the party off with a countdown before furiously spitting the words "level up" over frenetic production. It samples DJ Telly Tellz's "F--k It Up Challenge."


     


    [adinserter block="2"]


     


    "I just keep elevating / No losses just upgrading," Ciara boasts. "My lessons made blessings / I turned that into money."


    "Level Up" is the summer party anthem we needed. It doesn't have an ounce of tropical EDM warmth, and I'm grateful for that. If I hear one more warbly voice in a song I'm going to level up.

  11. Katy Perry is woke in the new issue of Vogue Australia.



     


    Katy Perry is woke in the new issue of Vogue Australia.


     


    [adinserter block="1"]


     


    The pop star gets candid about Witness failing to create the same mainstream music magic as her previous works and how devastating that was for her. So much so, she attended a week-long program at the Hoffman Institute last year, which “helps participants identify negative behaviours, moods and ways of thinking that developed unconsciously and were conditioned in childhood”.


    Speaking with Vogue Australia, Katy said: “For years, my friends would go and come back completely rejuvenated, and I wanted to go, too."


     


    [adinserter block="2"]


     


    "I was ready to let go of anything that was holding me back from being my ultimate self. I have had bouts of situational depression and my heart was broken last year because, unknowingly, I put so much validity in the reaction of the public, and the public didn’t react in the way I had expected to … which broke my heart.”


    Witness still managed to debut at No. 1 in the U.S., but Katy never faced more backlash than she had during that time. I remember coming for her a lot back then, and I don't feel good about it.


     


    [adinserter block="3"]


     


    “Music is my first love and I think it was the universe saying: ‘Okay, you speak all of this language about self-love and authenticity, but we are going to put you through another test and take away any kind of validating “blankie”. Then we’ll see how much you do truly love yourself.’"


    "That brokenness, plus me opening up to a greater, higher power and reconnecting with divinity, gave me a wholeness I never had. It gave me a new foundation. It’s not just a material foundation: it’s a soul foundation.”


     


    [adinserter block="4"]


     


    I think Katy said a couple of things she wished she could've taken back, but we shouldn't have turned on her like that. I hope the next record puts KP back on top.
