Greyson Chance fought for his coming out to not be used as an “exploitation tactic” / Amplify by Gay Times
Nine years ago, Greyson Chance became a viral sensation after his sixth-grade performance of Lady Gaga’s 2009 pop anthem, Paparazzi, was uploaded to YouTube.
After receiving widespread attention, heaps of acclaim (and a phone call from Gaga), the singer-songwriter – who was just 12-years-old at the time – was invited to appear on The Ellen Degeneres Show, and subsequently became a household name in the United States. In the same year, Greyson released his first single Waiting Outside the Lines – produced by Christina Aguilera’s mentor, Ron Fair – which was shortly followed by his pop-rock influenced debut studio album, Hold On ’til the Night. Imagine doing all of that before you hit your teens?
“I had to go through the ringers of the music industry at a very young age,” says Greyson. “I am just so blessed for my parents. I have an amazing mom and dad and they supported me through it the entire time, but there were a lot of pros and cons to it.” In subsequent years, Greyson released multiple EPs and a number of standalone singles – including Meridians, Back on the Wall and Lighthouse – but later decided that he wasn’t cut out for the industry. “I didn’t really see a path or trajectory for myself moving forward in music. Throughout adolescence, I knew I was good at music, but I don’t think I understood the weight of this being my path, my purpose. I became so beat down in the industry and so many people closed the door on me and said, ‘Listen, you’ve had your moment, that’s it.'”
Marina on why she wanted to “quit” music, and what changed her mind
Marina has opened up about why she wanted to “quit” making music.
The singer-songwriter, formerly known as Marina and the Diamonds, released her first three albums within relatively quick succession, but after 2015’s critically-acclaimed Froot, she says that “everything stopped feeling fun” for her.
“It’s not that I hated music but I couldn’t see myself going back to it at that time. I just didn’t know how to get to a place where I felt like I could do it again,” she explains to Alim Kheraj in the new issue of GAY TIMES.
“So I actually quit for a year. I told myself that I was not going to feel guilty about not doing this anymore. I’m allowing myself to quit and three albums is enough of a contribution. That’s it. I’m happy with that.”

Is Billie Eilish the next Nirvana? Dave Grohl says 'rock is not dead' thanks to teen star
Billie Eilish is just your average teenager – if every kid her age had a driver's license, Invisalign and nearly 3 billion streams to date.
At 17, the singular pop rebel has achieved more than most artists do in their entire careers: She's charted five singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (including "Bury a Friend," which peaked at No. 14), racked up 15 million followers on Instagram, performed at Lollapalooza, and sold out three headlining tours in a matter of minutes.

ALMA is ready to be the queer female popstar she always wanted to see / Amplify by Gay Times
ALMA first came to prominence in her home country when she was 17, competing in the seventh season of Finland’s edition of Idol. By 2016 she’d released two Top 10 singles with Karma and Dye My Hair, but it was third cut Chasing Highs that saw her bag Top 20 placings in the UK and Germany in 2017. From there, plans for a full-length debut album were put into motion.
“It was very hard to know which direction I wanted to go in,” ALMA admits when it came to writing a full collection of music. “I didn’t know what it was two years ago.” She retreated to writing sessions in Helsinki and Los Angeles, chopping and changing ideas until she struck upon the track that would inform the rest of her debut. “Cowboy was the song when I understood what I want to do and who I am,” she explains. “After that it was clear.”
The key, she discovered, was to start being totally honest to who she is. Cowboy centres on trying to fit into new social circles and discovering yourself as you come out of your teen years, something she had to deal with in more intense circumstances than most young people. “When I first moved to Los Angeles I felt so small and so emo,” she smiles. “Everybody was so energetic and positive, and I felt like I was just not fitting in at all. I needed to create an alter ego or something, to be like ‘I’m going to survive, I’m gonna make it through, I’m a motherfucking cowboy!’ It was a line that was in my head all the time.”

Meet trans pop star and style icon Kim Petras
“I just love to stunt!” Kim Petras exclaimed during her appearance at Saks Fifth Avenue on Thursday — an understatement to anyone who witnessed her parade of colorful outfits during New York Fashion Week.
It’s hard to believe that the 26-year-old pop star, who sat front row at Marc Jacobs, Christian Siriano, Jeremy Scott and more last month, was a runway-show newbie. But she insists that the experience was “surreal,” and a long time coming at that.
Sony Music Has Not Conceded That Vocals on Michael Jackson Album Are Fake
Articles published on Thursday claimed that Sony Music had “admitted” in a court hearing earlier this week that three tracks on “Michael,” the 2010 Michael Jackson album released posthumously by Sony’s Epic Records, contained lead vocals that were not actually by Michael Jackson — an assertion that the company denied in a statement released late Friday morning.
An Opera Expert on Why Aretha Franklin Was the Ultimate Diva
In the world of opera, the term “diva” is reserved for a select few. It has nothing to do with outlandish offstage behavior and everything to do with a true gift for communicating in song. It’s the Italian word for “goddess,” but when used for a performer, it’s more like someone touched by the divine for the general betterment of the rest of us.
At first, Aretha Franklin embodied that description literally, as the gospel-singing daughter of the most famous preacher of the day. But then she took it further -- to the blues, R&B, pop and even opera itself.
Lupe Fiasco Says He Will No Longer Consume 'Excessively Violent' Content
Lupe Fiasco is making a big life change in the upcoming months: Starting Jan. 1, 2019, he will no longer consume violent content.
“I will no longer support or engage with gratuitously senseless and or [sic] purposeless + excessively violent music, tv, cartoons, content and film,” he wrote on Instagram. “This includes all of the violent music, media and movies I grew up listening to and watching.”
The Chicago rapper’s love for martial arts and fighting video games has been well documented throughout the years; however, Lupe now suggests he will spend more time enjoying “peaceful” forms of entertainment: “There are so many other narratives in this world that involve peaceful means of cohabitation and expression with humanity and the world at large that deserves attention, absorption and contemplation,” he wrote.
