DJ Pornstar set to launch record label, Pornstar Records

DJ PornstarIf you’re looking for hot music from a hot body, look no further. DJ Pornstar, also known in gay porn as Dominic Pacifico, plans to launch a new record label for the gay community, Pornstar Records.

“It’s an idea that I came up with because I want to work with different record labels,” DJ Pornstar said. “I decided to push forward with it as a LGBT record label.”

DJ Pornstar hopes to shine a brighter light on LGBT artists such as the RuPaul drag race girls and Detox, who aren’t taken as seriously by the industry as their heterosexual counterparts.

“They just aren’t being recognized as artists,” DJ Pornstar said. “Since I put Pornstar Records out on Facebook, people have reached out and want to get involved. It’s perfect for people in the gay community who want to get involved and get more recognition for their work.”

DJ Pornstar is starting the year off with a bang. In addition to his prospective new label, he’s signed a contract with Gun Oil personal lubricants that includes this tear-jerking Valentine’s Day commercial, and continues to work with other partners including Andrew Christian. He will spend every other month in 2014 at his new residency in Beijing and hopes to do a European tour.

Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour kicks off with a bang!

Miley Cyrus Bangerz TourLeave it to Miley Cyrus to create a concert show leaving an audience talking about every moment throughout the show. The 38 city Bangerz Tour kicked off last night in Vancouver, B.C. at Rogers Arena, and fans were loving every moment of it.

The Bangerz Tour follows the release of Miley’s album, Bangerz, released last fall featuring hit singles We Can’t Stop and Wrecking Ball. The album debuted at #1 on iTunes in over 70 countries.

Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour

The show was a spectacle and collage of elements paying tribute to Miley’s assorted past. A 20’ dancing orange puppet and a team of florescent coloured furies paid tribute to her time when she was a kids performer, which many of her fans today still remember her by.

Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour

Much of her new music and many of the outfits Miley wore on stage were reminiscent of her country past, including numerous pairs of designer cowboy boots and leather chaps, to songs with a country music flare.

Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour

As Miley continues to evolve into a more bass-ass character, her newer songs feature a rap style and tone. This theme is echoed in the Bangerz Tour when she comes riding out on a gold toy car with a series of black dancers back-up dancing and breaking down her beats.

Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour

Most of Miley’s outfits throughout the Bangerz Tour show are designed to show off her incredibly toned body, often showing her mid-drift and allowing her plenty of opportunity to twerk for the crowd.

Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour

Miley Cyrus Bangerz TourThe Bangerz Tour also incorporated diversity. Most of the back-up dancers weren’t the traditional muscle-bound men and women typically expected. From heavy-set to midget, Latin to African American, the variety of shapes and sizes of dancers made the entire show very inclusive. Miley showed a lot of love for each and every dancer, engaging with them throughout the show.

During one of Miley’s love-themed songs, camera crews were in the audience capturing couples, who were encouraged to kiss while being projected onto the massive 80 foot screen at the back of the stage. While there were many straight couples kissing, and of course the typical girl-on-girl action, the biggest audience cheers rang out when a gay couple were lip-locked for a good 20 second kiss. It was pivotal moment during the set.

Throughout the show there were a variety of props, from a 40’ wolf to a giant hotdog and bun (no, she didn’t perform Wrecking Ball on it, which disappointed much of the crowd). Lasers, lights, animated projections and colourful balloons kept the show fun and entertaining.

The most awkward moment of the Bangerz Tour concert in Vancouver was at the end when Miley was singing Wrecking Ball. For the entire last chorus until the end of the song, the band and back-up singers were on pace, but Miley was completely off, singing either ahead or behind the rest of the group. It was very noticeable and threw off many of the concert goers.
