Little Big Shots: TNT Boys ‘Somebody to Love’ Has Good Story Behind It

TNT-Boys-620x375

In the Season 3 episode of Little Big Shots, “Give Us S’mores,” host Steve Harvey meets the singing trio TNT Boys from the Philippines. They choose to sing the Queen song “Somebody to Love,” and they nail it. The soul-searching song, written by the late Queen lead singer and pianist Freddie Mercury, is about a man who questions his life without love and the role of God in his lonely life. The lyrics include: “Lord what you’re doing to me (yeah yeah)/ I have spent all my years in believing you/ But I just can’t get no relief, Lord!” When Queen recorded the song, the band layered their voices so it sounded like a giant gospel choir.

It’s well known that Mercury was heavily influenced by the Queen of Soul, Miss Aretha Franklin, while writing “Somebody to Love” in 1976. In the interview below, he says he would love to have Franklin sing “Somebody to Love” but it never happened. “I wish I could sing like her,” says Mercury. “When I sing, I think of her.” New episodes of Little Big Shots air Thursdays at 8pm on NBC.

Nadine Lustre, James Reid share a jacuzzi moment in sunny California

Power couple James Reid and Nadine Lustre took some time to unwind in sunny California, before they entertained their fans once again for their “The Revolution Tour” in the United States.

Strutting in the streets of Los Angeles, Lustre sizzled in a white halter top, tight black striped skirt and a cap.  “[I’m] taking this weather with me,” she said on her Instagram page Saturday, June 2.

Im taking this weather with me.

The heat got Reid and Lustre needing to take a dip in a jacuzzi, in the desolate landscape of Joshua Tree.

We made it!

Cole Sprouse in Manila

Cole Sprouse, star of Netflix’s hit coming-of-age drama-thriller “Riverdale,” arrived in Manila on April 18 for a fan meet-and-greet on April 20 at the SM Mega Fashion Hall and Glorietta Activity Center.

A Netflix representative told us that Sprouse’s visit to Manila has nothing to do with Netflix or “Riverdale” as he arrived here through Filipino apparel brand Bench, for which he is an endorser.

On April 19, Cole’s tweet that simply said “Manila Manila Manila!” garnered over 90,000 likes and 14,000 retweets.

Bench owner and founder Ben Chan also shared several photos of Cole upon the latter’s touchdown in Manila.

“It’s official – @colesprouse is here!” said one of Chan’s captions.

“Let’s give @colesprouse a warm welcome to Manila,” another caption read.

Cole is the twin brother of Dylan, and both first became known for respectively playing Cody and Zack in the Disney Channel series “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.” The twins’ characters in the series have also appeared other Disney Channel shows like Miley Cyrus’ “Hannah Montana.”

Cole, however, has appeared alone as Ross Geller’s son in the NBC TV sitcom “Friends” and as Billy in the Ashton Kutcher-starrer “That ‘70s Show.”

A graduate of Humanities specializing in Archeology at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study together with his brother, Cole worked briefly in archeological excavations and lab work.

Cole also took photography classes at the New York University and has been commissioned to shoot for Teen Vogue, The Sunday Times Style, and W Magazine, among others.

Since 2017, Cole has been starring as Jughead Jones in the CW TV series “Riverdale,” available in the Philippines through Netflix.

Cole is reportedly dating his “Riverdale” co-star Lili Reinhart, who, together with their other co-star, Camila Mendes, was recently involved in a controversy.

James Reid Is the New Face of Sunnies Studios

It’s official: Sunnies Studios‘ newest face is none other than James Reid, headlining one of the local brand’s biggest campaigns of 2018.

Martine Cajucom, the label’s Creative Director, says of their latest poster boy: “We weren’t looking for the Sunnies Studios version of an “internet boyfriend,” we definitely wanted someone more dynamic, more creative; a unique individual who brings more than just a cute face to the brand. He’s authentic, he’s chill, and he has the kind of talent that only hard work can bring—we think [James] is a good fit for Sunnies Studios.”

We agree. Chill, unassuming, and professional, James does things for the thrill, not the trophies. “I listen. I still listen to a lot of different things these days, only because I don’t want to get stuck saying the same thing everybody else is saying. I like being different,” the Never Not Love You leading man shares, musing about his creative influences. James might always be the first one to break the rules, but his passion to change the game is what caught Sunnies’ attention in the first place. He’s a star, but beyond that, he’s also just a guy trying to live in his moment. “I’m just here. My work, my music, my real life – and I’m just trying to have a good time.”

“James Reid came out of left field for me – but the more I saw him, the more I understood. The more I liked what he brings and represents. I love his music, I love his alternative spirit, his [being an] artista is atypical and I love the fact that he’s always worn Sunnies Studios,” Georgina Wilson, Sunnies’ Marketing Director, says.

“Planning the shoot for James,” Martine begins, telling us about building the visuals of this campaign. “We thought about bringing back the spirit of our old campaigns way, way back to the beginning of the brand. We would shoot a lot of our images guerilla-style, with a really lean team. The charm of it was not knowing what you’ll get until you get there, capturing a lot of real moments along the way. For James, that’s basically what we did. For the visuals, we were inspired by the soft, sun-dappled lights and the eighties prep vibe from the film Call Me By Your Name – we booked a 12-hour mini vacation to a poolside villa outside of the city. A couple of books, some good food, music, it was a few fun hours spent with James and our photographer Cenon Norial III. Seeing the images now, we think we were able to capture a different side of James, a side that’s closer to something real.”

Model Watch: Wryan Chua, from Chinito Cutie to Hottie Real Quick

wwwwwwww.jpg

We first saw him at Mr. Chinatown last 2016 and had a runner -up finish. Wryan Chua a 21 y/o, Fil-Chinese is the one it-boy to look for. From being a cutie, he proves that he is now ready to be Philippine’s next hottie.

w.jpg

It’s so hard not to fall in love with this guy as he has this killer chinito look, rock hard body and his sweet and innocent charm. On top of that he just recently graduated in college with a degree in Tourism Management.

Currently he’s into modelling, mostly in print ads. He had appeared on several magazines such as Candy Magazine, Scene Zone, Inquirer Lifestyle and Cosmopolitan Magazine. He also do have several endorsements such as Move On clothing, American Walker Shoes, Fit Food Manila and Oppo to name a few.  He’s now signed with Viva Artist Agency and his plan is to focus more on entering in the show business.

He said he enjoys watching Netflix and going to the gym. He loves to eat a lot as well as he loves to cook, his specialty was potato recipes but he’s not a fan of seafood as he is allergic to it. He’s a big fan of the American TV series F.R.I.E.N.D.S. . During his free time he loves going to the beach as he enjoys swimming and he’s into playing table tennis. He also added that he doesn’t like to go to places which requires a lot of energy such as trekking as he much rather wants to stay relax and chill.

wwwwwwwwwwwww

About his personal style, he told us that he always wants to keep it simple. He’s more into the boy-next-door look and he’s not ‘maporma’ and doesn’t want to try hard as he is who he is. Indeed, he’s still a style icon.
