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.”

Christine + The Queens thinks music is becoming more progressive
Christine & The Queens' Héloïse Letissier believes pop can tackle LGBTQ subjects ''without being questioned''.

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.
And with her debut album, "When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?," arriving this Friday, the fast-rising Los Angeles native is sure to garner the attention of many other music fans beyond her fiercely devoted Gen Z following.
From celebrity supporters to rumored Illuminati ties, here's everything you need to know about Eilish.

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.”
