British GQ 2014 Awards and Alternative ones too

British GQ 2014 Awards

gq dan stevens

On Tuesday last week British GQ hosted their Awards of the year bash. Meaning Gentleman’s Quarterly, GQ’s awards cast a doubtful shadow over the legitimacy of accuracy and rightful winners, instead plagued with favourites and ‘hot right now’ winners.

Whilst talented some winners such as Peter Capaldi as TV Personality after just One episode of Doctor Who as the new Doctor aired do not show off GQ as a credible entity to look towards, something it usually prides itself on as a brand. We like Peter, but come on, he only had one episode last week.

Cumberbatch accepts award though still deserved and funny too.

Cumberbatch accepts award though still deserved and funny too.

So below, we shall list the Alternative awards with a list of who SHOULD have won and who COULD win also. The SHOULD have won is clear enough. The second, will be who COULD feasibly win for GQ’s reputation to gain interest and be somewhat deserving of the gong over a joint or compromisable decision, keeping the tone of its brand in tact.

Those in bold are the one’s we would have chosen this year. It’s not personal, but these aren’t the ‘give them an award because I like them awards’.

It wont be long before Nicole, Cheryl, Louis Smith and the like of luvvie duvvies get their gongs at this rate.

One thing you can be sure of, every fashion company will now undoubtedly endorse many of the names printed above. Clearly they can’t think who is deserving and need to pilfer from here. That’s because they are mindless at how to run the show. GQ UK Mag, Esquire and the like can hire me for job roles. Hell, even I would be better as GQ Editor in Chief. Make it happen GQ, I will boost your sales, instead of declining them and your reputation you sought so hard to achieve as a credible focal point, along stars of the mag.

The awards had some questionable winners including Tony Blair and Kim Kardashian.

Richard Dodgson – who organised the GQ Men of the Year Awards – said controversy is no bad thing.

“We like to have celebrities at our event who cause a bit of a stir,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live. “So having Tony was fantastic. We like to have people who have opinions and are forthright.”

Clearly trying to make a name for themselves to gather attention, this has been done in the wrong way and Dodgson clearly sees to lack the nature of grasping media in a correct context to establish brand identity. Instead it made laughable fools of them instead.

Celeb Big Brother UK evictions 4 and 5 announced

Celebrity Big Brother Double eviction results in

steph pratt

After nominating face to face on Wednesday evening tonight’s show evicted two housemates in a double eviction.

The nominated six were James Jordan, Stephanie Pratt, Kellie Maloney, Audley Harrison, Gary Busey and Edele Lynch.

The first two housemates were saved. James Jordan and Gary Busey were both saved by the public vote.

The first eviction saw Stephanie leave the house as evictee number four. Fans felt Stephanie was a game player who was using George Gilbey for favouritism to win votes to stay. She also admitted to being a germaphobe, having issues with cleanliness. On her eviction interview, she said Gary Busey should be “in a straightjacket” since trying to understand her health issues. American housemate Stephanie was reprimanded for her stern shouting at Gary Busey for no apparent reason.

James, who has been purposely snapping at leading man Gary Busey and verbally vindictive to recent transgender Kellie Maloney was saved after mass shock from fans of the show voting.

Homophobic misogynistic condescender  James earlier attacked Kellie with bitchy jibes using her trans gender change as survival leverage. Kellie entered the house only weeks after taking hormonal treatments during her trans progression further showing victimisation to the community with people like James. The show did not reprimand Briton James at all for his personal comments. The production show continue to be under debate by the voting public who feel the show is editing strategically to protect James in hopes for ratings.

Afterwards the second to be sent out, in the shock double eviction from the house was Kellie Maloney. Fans viciously boo’ed Kellie after James used her trying to adjust to her trans change as a strategy to turn crowds against her unpredictable mood swing as an effect of her transition. Experts have widely explained it is highly difficult to adjust in later years of trans re-assignment. Kellie is a sixty-one, that’s 61, year old woman.

In her eviction interview Kellie thanked the public who supported her and having her time in the house. Kellie said she felt accomplished on her journey to grow as a woman on the show, and praised her closeness with Dee. Kellie pulled James up over his abusive manner of talking to people after suggesting he was playing games. She called him a “lost soul” after a counselling session. He wants to be “top dog” Kellie added. Aging dancer James was sacked by Strictly Come Dancing months ago. Kellie said she came out as a “better person” from the experience. Kellie finally said “I’ve never used my gender or sexuality” as James falsely suggested.

One week is left  for the final eight housemates with another double eviction Wednesday.

Celeb Big Brother Third evictee announced. 2 housemates leave. New nominations in.

Third evictee is…

Celebrity Big Brother - Summer 2014

Last night Big Brother hosted its third eviction of the Summer series.

Nominated for eviction were Kellie Maloney, Angelique ‘Frenchy’ Morgan, Stephanie Pratt, Ricci Guarnaccio, Lauren Goodger and Gary Busey. Catty dancer James Jordan and boxing legend Audley Harrison gained immunity from being nominated.

Glamour model and socialite Frenchy Morgan was the third housemate to get the BB Boot. She thanked the UK for granting her the ‘privileged’ of entering the star studded house. Morgan was regarded by fans as one of the most entertaining and interesting ones, but fell victim to the usual demographic of teen females voting on fickle attitudes and favoured hunks with no shirts on.

Soap actress Claire King left the house after being admitted to hospital over health concerns. Unable to return, Claire has since forfeited her place in the house, for obvious reasons. Claire became the first ever and most notorious soap ‘Superbitch’ for her fiery role as Kim Tate in Emmerdale.

NEW NOMINATIONS

After the eviction Big Brother announced the housemates will nominate face to face once more after last week. The six nominated were Gary Busey, James Jordan, Audley Harrision, singer Edele Lynch, Kellie Maloney and Stephanie Pratt.

james jordan smug

Smug, condescending, homophobic, misogynistic dancer Jordan is next in frame for boot.

Friday’s eviction will be a double meaning two housemates are to be democratically removed by the public.

Fans felt Big Brother bosses were abusing the show to keep in disagreeable people in order to keep ratings up, ignoring the process of the show instead.

Jordan, Pratt and Lynch are the favourites to go.

Uncoupling defintion?

What is the meaning of ‘Uncoupling?’

After their high profile, low damaging split, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin entered the “uncoupling” phase. So, what exactly is ‘uncoupling’ and what causes this?

‘Experts’ or some old lady who speaks elocution lessons were asked and gave an around the houses response. So in realistic terms, allow us to intervene.

Uncoupling? The answer is clear. This is nothing more than and ‘amicable divorce’ in which the split is not messy, both care for one another with civil respect but realise they are in an empty relationship on a path to nowhere.

Gwyn and Chris had an amicable divorce. And that, as they say, is that.

Fans do not wish to see certain good celeb’s paired with terrible ‘glory hunter’ professionals. Many routing for early favourite Ben Cohen, rugby ace and gay rights campaigner, to be paired with Karen Hauer, Aliona Vilani or any other female who makes the show ‘about her’ only. Others hold cutey Ashley Taylor Dawson in a similar regard. Others are still dismayed cocky Brendan Cole remains in post. The BBC also lost reputation after it let go veteran dancer Erin Boag an original since the beginning.

Erin out.

Professional Australian dancer Natalie Lowe injured her ankle and had to pull out forcing red faced BBC to rehire the disastrous calamity Aliona Vilani. Vilani, who was sacked by the BBC, is classed by viewers as “all t*ts and arse” and nothing else.

aliona leg

Spare Vilani back in after shortfall.

Critics have already begun, adding the lineup is decent but lacks star power and has too many “in-house” names to rival the flagging X Factor franchise.

Should have booked me to dance with Erin.

Celeb Big Brother housemates CONFIRMED

The list is the confirmed thirteen housemates that went into the Celebrity Big Brother house.

cbb

Louie Spence, Sophie Anderton, Ron Atkinson, Lauren Harries, Abz Love (Richard Breen), Courtney Stodden, Mario Falcone, Dustin Diamond, Charlotte Crosby, Bruce Jones, Vicky Entwhistle, Carol McGiffin and Danielle Marr.

Unheard of star Danielle Marr is famous for being on Dublin Wives, which virtually no-one saw or heard of. She is a celebrity botox doctor.

Some original plans pulled out including Big Boi from Outkast and the late Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Many online fans thought TOWIE towngirl Sam Faiers would enter the house, and was a red herring in our previous post on the revealed housemates. Others were highly tipped but talks fell through.

World Aids Day

World Aids Day

waday

World Aids Day begins on 1st December 2012

With a rapid increase in the contraction of the disease, it has never been more crucial to get yourself checked.

Getting checked is easy. Why don’t they get checked?

Some assume many are lazy and this may be true to an extent but not fully as numbers are high in those undiagnosed, meaning those who haven’t gotten checked are carriers and unaware they may be spreading to others.

Some who won’t get tested out of pride or think to themselves they wont have caught it, you may not have, but if you have had unprotected sex a number of times, and in a short space of time, go and get checked, it shan’t take long and will help you in the long run and support society and the world.

red ribbon

Show your support by wearing a red ribbon.

If you have unprotected sex, you could be at higher risk along with numerous unknowing they may have it, should seek help or advice. Go to your local GUM clinic or even a GP (Doctor) and talk with them on your concerns. As anyone knows, the quicker something is diagnosed (or ruled out) the quicker its dealt with, the faster help and support will be available to you to make life easier. You can still live a full and healthy life.

Myths that “all gay men” are the “scourge” that host this STI is exactly that, a myth.

Health authorities, governments and nurses express that men sleeping with men and African American/Black ethnic groups are most at risk and need to get tested if having a fuller sex life.

These are not the only groups who are assumed to be dirty and bad for having sex, but do have it responsibly. Those who assume this are the one’s (as I have been informed by sources from gay communities as well as Black communities) who blindly donate the aids epidemic and blame the obvious two groups because aids began in the media with black men from Africa and homosexual men as the first few publicly announced to bear the bug.

Many forget that in Africa, young children are born with it after sexual abuse, manly rape, to their mothers by callous men who know they are infected and couldn’t care less of spreading such infection.

If you are pregnant and have unprotected sex with one or numbers of men you don’t know off, or have before falling pregnant, get checked as you or your child could be at risk.

Some partners also cheat on their spouses/significant others so those who cheat could contract and then bring it back home to you by sleeping with you to cover their tracks from affairs and “make up” with a seemingly loving romantic liaison.

If the world works together, and the public complies with screenings and testing, then eventually, the world may be able to lower the numbers and risk of spreading the epidemic with co-operation.

Over 100,000 people in the UK are living with HIV, but a quarter do not know they have it – that is 25,000 people who are not benefiting from treatment and are increasing the risk of passing the virus on.

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) state one in 20 men who have sex with men in the UK now have HIV, and the figure soars to nearly one in 12 in London.

This of course, is just one statistic of an increasing rise of all groups.

elton john aids foundation

The key note to understand, first and foremost is that anyone from any group can contract, even Women. There is no shame in getting checked, and with the rates of “it only takes one” to pass it on, testing is crucial.

We live in a world where most of us are uneducated about the infection and its solution which is why it is important to take an interest and think rather than assume and blame as there is no judgment on lack of education on such subject. You can easily say it doesn’t affect you, but anyone could transfer it without you knowing, as well as loved ones you care for.

The most important to take from this is to use a condom. This increases safety and you can have sex responsibly.

Remember, having a sex life is all well and good but do so responsibly.

If you liked it, then you should’ve put a bag on it…
