Logan Henderson “Bite My Tongue” – Billboard

Logan Henderson Bite My Tongue

Originally appeared on Billboard.com

By Brian Kress

Los Angeles-based singer Logan Henderson is keeping something big to himself. He’s risking it all to do it in the video for his latest single “Bite My Tongue.”

In a video shot in London the singer-songwriter stars as a brooding loner. Henderson is on the run in a simulation that leaves the boundaries of reality ambiguous. In the process, Henderson has his evasive skills tested by a sharply dressed crew amid a brightly lit urban jungle, all while protecting a female companion. Tension reaches that of an action-thriller, with intricate chase scenes and several well-staged physical confrontations.

The glitzy getaway through late night London is the perfect complement to a track that’s halfway between ’80s pop and the moodier, modern R&B. According to Henderson, the mixed throwback sound lent itself to the video’s visual aesthetic.

“From the beginning, we felt this song had a sense of nostalgia that merged with our current taste in music,” Henderson tells Billboard. “Our goal sonically was to maintain that hybrid of something new and something familiar.”

Sashinski adds, “In early conversations with Logan it was clear that this video needed to be somewhat dark and character-driven. We wanted to channel that feeling of being in a thriving metropolis, surrounded by people and activity. Still being alone and needing to tap into something superficial in order to feel human connection.”

With a mind-bending conclusion, it’s unclear if Henderson the protagonist has ultimately gained the insight to escape his isolation, but it’s certain that Henderson the artist has completely come into his own.

The singer-songwriter is  best known for his role in the TV show and musical counterpart Big Time Rush. Following his solo debut “Sleepwalker” from earlier this year, “Bite My Tongue” is another knockout track that indicates prospects are bright for his as-of-yet unannounced first solo project.

Check out the video for “Bite My Tongue” below.

Jersey Shore Is Officially BACK! BK Promo Just Dropped & We’re Freaking Out!

THIS ARTICLE ORIGINALLY APPEARED ON MISSDOMESTICATED.COM

By Tom Bombadil

What a time to be alive – The Jersey Shore cast has reunited and we’ve got your FIRST LOOK at the entire crew together at a Burger King family dinner right here!

OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!

Snooki, JWoww, Pauly D, The Situation and the rest are all rumored to get back together on television sometime this August, and we’re hoping this BK ad may be a teaser of what’s to come.

This is not a drill!!!

Now, all that said, this probably isn’t going to be the drunken drama that we fell in love with all those years ago. Sources from production told TMZ that a cable network has ordered one or a few episodes that will be shot more like a documentary, catching up with the stars and seeing where their lives are now.

Still though. We deserve this. We need this.

Snooki herself was one of the first to tease the news, as she posted the above pic to social with the caption, “REUNION TIME”

The Situation seems particularly excited at the news, saying in an interview, “The stars have aligned, and it’s time to make reality TV great again. [This reunion] really is long overdue.”

Who’s stoked to see the gang back together?! That’s right EVERYONE DUH!!!

HOLD THE DOORMAN!

Kristian Nairn social media influencer

By Olivia Waring

Game of Thrones’ Hodor actor Kristian Nairn has a second career as a successful house DJ spends time and plays gigs all over the world

Northern Irish actor who played the lovable Hodor is now spinning decks and enjoying his first love – house music – around the world

HE may be known for holding doors, but Game Of Thrones’ Hodor is actually better at holding down the club with his epic house mixes.

Fans of the HBO drama may not know that actor Kritian Nairn, 41 – who bowed out during series six – is actually a successful DJ who tours the globe playing top clubs.

Northern Irish actor Kristian describes himself as a “progressive house” DJ, meaning he prefers to play the 90s “rave” side of the dance genre.

The 6ft 11in star, who’s openly gay, used to be the resident DJ at an LGBT Belfast nightclub called Kremlin.

Hardcore fans of the fantasy drama may have grabbed a ticket for his brief tour Rave Of Thrones in the winter of 2014.

It’s a surprising revelation about a man whose character could only utter one word – his own name – throughout the entire show.

Previously, Kristian was asked what music he thinks his Game Of Thrones alter-ego would listen to.

He hilariously responded: “Probably something frat boys would listen to, because he’s a bit of an idiot.

“So let’s go with dubstep.”

Sadly for fans of the show Kristian has also vowed never to play Game Of Thrones remixes or samples.

He said: “I would never do that — there’s enough of those around, anyway.

“I don’t do anything different than I normally do in my DJ set, ever. I’m not into gimmicks, really.”

Asked if he’s annoyed that Thrones’ huge success has overshadowed his deck-spinning prowess, he said he rather likes playing for fans of the drama.

He explained; “I’ll always say a ‘Hodor’ right at the end [of a set], because I think I’d probably get lynched if I didn’t.

“But, you know, it is what it is. People sort of assume that it p***es me off in some way, but it doesn’t.

“It’s given me this wonderful vehicle to sort of push myself and music into the world, which I didn’t have before. So how can I resent that?”

Now he no longer needs to be on set, Kristian has been bashing out more tunes than ever.

In Los Angeles this week he played the Create nightclub to hugely appreciative crowds – none of whom were dressed in Thrones cosplay.

Game Of Thrones continues on Sky Atlantic tonight at 9pm.

KFC’s Latest Ad Featuring ‘Hodor’ From ‘Game Of Thrones’ Went Viral In Minutes

kristian Nairn

THIS ARTICLE ORIGINALLY APPEARED ON DESIGNTAXI.COM

By Izza Sofia

‘Hodor’s’ death in last season’s Game of Thrones was really heartbreaking, and now KFC has made us relive that grief all over again with its new ad.

The fast food chain has conveniently jumped on the Thrones bandwagon ahead of season seven’s launch next week, with an appearance by ‘Hodor’ himself.

Actor Kristian Nairn plays an employee at KFC who is overwhelmed with requests for ‘chicken with fries’ from impatient customers. Like his character, who could famously only say his name ‘Hodor’ on the show, Kristian can seemingly only say ‘chicken with fries’—the most popular order at this KFC outlet.

He watches the clock in panic as it hits 12pm and a mass of serious-faced hungry customers marches through the door. He then repeats everyone’s order of ‘chicken with fries’ over and over again, as more and more people order the popular meal.

He gets more agitated—until his words start morphing into ‘chicken with rice’ instead. The tongue-in-cheek spoof is promoting KFC’s Ricebox, which contain the chain’s famous Original Recipe chicken with rice instead of chips.

Return to Paradise! Inside Bachelor in Paradise Stars Carly Waddell and Evan Bass’ Tropical Nuptials

bachelor in paradise

ORIGINALLY APPEARED ON PEOPLE.COM

BY CHRISTINA DUGAN

It was the wedding of their dreams!

Bachelor in Paradise‘s Carly Waddell and Evan Bass tied the knot over the weekend during an intimate ceremony officiated by the show’s host, Chris Harrison, at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta resort near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and PEOPLE has all the details!

“We had a dream wedding on Saturday. It was truly the perfect day with friends and family in Mexico,” the newlyweds said in an exclusive joint statement to PEOPLE. “There was no better way to celebrate the start of our forever journey together. The setting, in a garden overlooking the ocean, created a stunning visual that I don’t think anyone will forget. Evan’s children delivered heartfelt and hysterical speeches that had everyone laughing and crying simultaneously. The love from Bachelor Nation has been overwhelming and we are so grateful to all who helped make this day amazing.”

The couple was joined by numerous fellow Bachelor Nation alums, including Jade Roper (bridesmaid) and Tanner Tolbert, Wells Adams (groomsman), Whitney Bischoff and her fiancé Ricky Angel, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth, Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi, sisters Emily and Haley Ferguson, Ashley Iaconetti, and Jared Haibon.

For the big day, Waddell chose a unique and feminine strapless fit-and-flare nude gown with intricate white embroidery, a piece created by Israeli designer Idan Cohen. The romantic design originally debuted on the runway as the “Mercedes” dress during the designer’s 2017 bridal fashion show. While the look was styled with a shoulder cover for the runway, Waddell opted to keep her shoulders bare with a loose side-braid.

Having met on the set of Paradise, the (what seemed to be an unlikely) duo was immediately drawn to each other. By the end of their journey on the ABC reality show, Bass found himself popping the question to the woman of his dreams.

“Everything happens for a reason,” Waddell, 31, previously told PEOPLE. “It’s been a long journey for me in Bachelor Nation, but I would do it a thousand times again. Because the next part is going to be bliss.”

Living in Nashville, Tennessee, with Bass’ three sons (Nathan, Liam and Ensley), the duo prides themselves in the number one thing that has made their love last.

“We have great communication,” Waddell said. “It’s what we had as friends and it’s what keeps us in love.”

Just one week before the wedding, Warner Bros. announced that it had officially halted production of the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise due to an investigation into allegations of misconduct. On Tuesday, the company released its first statement regarding the investigation to PEOPLE, announcing that it was complete and concluding that there was no evidence of misconduct.

Bachelor in Paradise will return later this summer on ABC.
