Gaga’s Highly Anticipated Chromatica Makes Epic Release Just In Time For Pride Month
With Pride Month only a few days away, the gays are rejoicing in quarantine! From drag queens to pop divas, AfterBuzz TV’s #GayTwitter had a field day this week with a plethora of queer topics. We are talking RuPaul’s Drag Race, Lady Gaga and Christian Cooper – tune in!
Founded by Emmy winning journalist Maria Menounos and Producer Keven Undergaro, AfterBuzz TV is the artist-friendly entertainment news platform that celebrates, discusses, interviews, promotes and reports on the widest range of stars, creators and content through video, audio and article publications.
Starting with the grandest stage of them all: RuPaul’s Drag Race! Season 12’s Top 3 can easily be considered one of the best groups of finalists to date. Gigi Goode came into the season as a fierce competitor starting off strong while snagging numerous wins under her belt including Snatch Game, The Rusical, and The Ball Challenge. Meanwhile, Jaida Essence Hall rose to the top by the end of the competition winning The Fosse, Makeover and Debate Challenge, all while making a statement every week with her phenomenal runway looks. Last, but certainly not least, not only did she rise from the ashes and into our hearts with her infectious personality and her one of a kind runways, Crystal Methyd also proved the doubters wrong, winning The One-Queen Show Challenge. Regardless of who takes the crown, I think we can all agree that the Season 12 queens are as talented as they are beautiful, and we would love to see any one of them in the near future on All Stars.
With Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande completely quenching Gay Twitter’s thirst last week with their music video of ‘Rain On Me’, the long-awaited Chromatica finally made its epic release. Included in the highly anticipated dance record, Gaga collaborated with icons like Elton John and K-Pop girl group sensation, BLACKPINK. With the combined vocal talents of both Gaga and Elton, “Sine From Above” combines the genres of ballad and dance seamlessly into a powerful anthem that tells the story of Gaga’s survival through music. Meanwhile, Gaga called forth the power of K-Pop from Jennie, Rosé, Jisoo and Lisa to produce “Sour Candy,” a short, but super catchy bop that successfully goes against the sentiment of women having to be sweet all the time. I know it might be hard to choose, but what’s your favorite track of Chromatica?
Lastly, Gay Twitter would like to highlight one of Twitter’s heroes of the week, Christian Cooper. Harvard Graduate and former editor of Marvel, Christian introduced the first gay male character in a Star Trek comic and the first openly lesbian character for Marvel. Christian, also an avid bird watcher, was in Central Park this past Memorial Day weekend and asked Amy Cooper (no relation) who was walking her dog without a leash, to politely put one on. When she wasn’t cooperating Christian began recording her, and Amy quickly responded by saying she’d call the police and say, “there’s an African American man threatening my life.” With Christian still recording, Amy proceeded to make the call. She was acticing frantically, using racial prejudice and all while manhandling her dog in the process.
When the dust eventually settled, the video went viral on Twitter, resulting in Amy being put on leave from her job, as well as her having to surrender her dog to the Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue. We at Gay Twitter would like to applaud Christian for his solidarity this week and for actively combating racial prejudice. Not only did this act prove the power of social media, but it also demonstrated how it can help protect lives, especially black lives. If he wasn’t recording this string of events, who knows what harmful results could have potentially transpired.
