I just want Ricky to record some more club bangers and start droppin it like it's hot again (this time in a thong)!
I read that male giraffes have orgies. It is time to get these animals converted to Christianity and saved.
Ironically, I thought we would have a gay President before a black one.
Are Markus' employers still hiring? If so I wanna submit my resume.
the second JLS boyband member (from the left) would be too obvious. My wish would be the one on the far right. So I'm guessing it's the one in the striped purple shirt...Something very Lance Bass going on there.
George Michaels is so gross now. He could have got it 20 years ago...Now. Ew.
I am still dissappointed with Jill. I love her music and voice.

Toddy, the JLS boys, from left to right, are: JB, Aston, Ortise and Marvin. Everyone wants Marvin, so get in line. I'd take any of them, except maybe Ortise.

I'm not actually a fan of Ricky's music. I love "She's All I Ever Had", though...

Congrats on commenting in record time! lol

Corve said...

The biggest story is the one with Ricky Martin. I am happy he has done the honest thing, his kids will love him for that

Oura said...

Jesus was BI don't get it twisted! lol :p

Eric Arvin said...

I find Ricky Martin much more attractive now.

Trojan Gayle said...

Garçon Stupide said...
