Jack Higgins

Oh, Britain’s got Talent… everything about that show is just so terrible. The production, the judges, the fake audience “reactions”. But sometimes the contestants aren’t. And if 14-year-old Jack manges to grow up like Ronan did he’s gonna be one hell of a pretty dancer, that’s for sure.

Melodifestivalen 2016

milkboys Music, Music & Dance 7 Comments

It’s that time of the year again, the Eurovision Song Contest is around the corner and few countries are as obsessed with it as Sweden and Germany; for some reason especially the queer populations of said countries. The big difference between the two being that Sweden is actually doing very well in the contest on a regular basis ;)

After 2012 (one of the greatest winning songs ever if you ask me) the Swedes took the crown again last year with the anti-bullying song Heroes performed by Måns Zelmerlöw. If you have a few minutes I urge you to check out his entry from last year just so you’re properly prepared for the epicness that was his performance during Melodifestivalen last night which you can see below.

Watch the whole thing, it’s absolutely worth it, promise…

Melodifestivalen is the annual Swedish competition in which the country decides which artist gets to represent them at Eurovision. This year it will be 17-year-old Frans; you can check out his song below. See you at the Eurovision finals on May 14!

PWR BTTM

milkboys Music, Music & Dance 4 Comments

PWR BTTM is an American queer punk duo composed of Liv Bruce and Ben Hopkins. Gender and sexuality are major topics in the music of PWR BTTM. Bruce and Hopkins identify as queer, and address this in the music they make. They discussed the subject of creating “queer” rock music in an interview with Village View:

“We’re queer people, and our truth is that and the music we make, and what we say in our music is representative of who we are . It is us making ourselves feel less alone through our work. Sexuality has always been a part of rock music but that didn’t necessarily mean that it was queer. One of the things that made me excited about writing about my own sexuality and asserting it was doing that in a queer voice and using that to tell a queer story.”

I want a boy, to keep the bed warm while I shower
I want a boy, to keep the bed warm while we’re watching TV
I want a boy, to keep the bed warm when the whole house is freezing
I want a boy, who isn’t anything like me
I want a boy, who doesn’t like to go out shopping
I want a boy, who thinks it’s sexy when my lipstick bleeds
I want a boy, who can go all night without stopping
I want a boy, who knows exactly what he needs

So if you think that you’re the boy for me and I’m the boy for you
Drop me a line at ob8419@bard.edu
Tell me a little bit about yourself, send a picture or two
Hurry up now, because it’s only getting colder

…than to see you walk away. We’re back :) And what better way to celebrate than with Mr Ronan Parke? I’ll have a detailed post about why we were gone and how we’ll try to avoid doing it again in the future once and for all later, for now let’s just enjoy this…

Troye Sivan goes Wild

milkboys Music, Music & Dance 7 Comments

Released from the new EP under the same name, Wild comes following a hugely successful YouTube career and his TRXYE EP last year, gaining almost three million Twitter followers and over three and a half million YouTube subscribers in the process.

The electro-pop track follows a friendship between a younger Troye and what appears to be his best friend. As the story progresses, we jump between the friendship and the current Troye clinging onto this childhood boyfriend before ending as the duo kiss.

Wild is the first of three in his Blue Neighbourhood series. Fingers crossed we see more of the adorable couple in part two and three.

Talking to Popjustice, Troye revealed that he’d like to work with Years & Years’ Olly Alexander: “I think we’d have to write something new. A nice pop ballad would be really good. A GAY BALLAD. There’s not many romantic male-on-male duets.”
