NEW VIDEO: JESSIE J - 'WILD'
This could be the video. I hope not. I LOATHE b&w videos. And also wondering if it is pure coincidence that this ‘Single Ladies’ looking video was directed by Emil Nava, whose brother Jake shot….’Single Ladies’.
NEW MUSIC: JESSIE J - 'WILD'
Jessie j continues to prove why she is better than everyone secretly wants her to be.
NEW MUSIC: PHARRELL - 'HAPPY'
Hooking up with Daft Punk has got his disco juices flowing. Eww…that sounded a bit gross, but this track is great.
NOT LONG TO WAIT...
NEW MUSIC: NICKY DA B - 'GO LOKO'
“I’m your biggest fan, I’ll follow you around until you fuck me…” Lolz Loving that so many gay rappers are poppin’ out the closet but I look forward to when we have more than just club records. One step at a time…
I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO
So I became kind of obsessed with this guy when I was in San Francisco last year. I would see him go go dancing in clubs and working in MR S Leather. The first time we ‘met’ was when he sat in front of me at a Death Becomes Her screening and as he sat down I realised he wasn’t wearing any underwear. #TrueLove
DAT ASSS MAY HAVE TO BECOME A REGULAR FEATURE
Here are Rihanna’s and Hugh Jackman’s…
HAPPY HARVEY MILK DAY, Y'ALL!
“If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door. You’ve got to give them hope!” Our squirrelfriend Sister Roma and others read Harvey Milk’s LEGENDARY speech which is still so relevant after the recent spat of gay bashings, where we are still fighting for the right to marry the person we love and have equal rights in general.
FRANCOIS SAGAT'S NEW CLOTHING RANGE
I know what I’ll be asking my lovers to wear in bed. http://kicksagat.com/

NEW MUSIC: KANYE WEST - 'NEW SLAVES'
Kanye is back. This is set to be projected in cities around the world at various times over the next 48 hours. Not sure about the melody but ♥ the lyrics… ‘I’d rather be a dick than a swallower.’ ‘Fuck you and your Hamptons’ house, I’ll fuck your Hamptons’ spouse. Came on her Hampton blouse and in her Hampton mouth.’
NEW MUSIC: LANA DEL REY - 'QUEEN OF DISASTER'
THE BACK BUILDING HANGS OUT WITH FRANCOIS SAGAT
It’s been a big week for Francois as he announced his retirement from porn. Personally we always preferred the arty shit anyway - I’d much rather see him mime to Mariah or pose for Mr Richardson. But it was an outlet that was an interesting one and I liked that he stayed true to it even as he pursued other angles of his career. Multi-faceted Francois. Anyway, we’ve interviewed...
NEW MUSIC: KELLY ROWLAND 'DIRTY LAUNDRY'
Kelly ain’t playin’ no mo’… ‘When my sister was on stage killing it like a mutherfucker, I was in a rage, feeling it like a mutherfucker…’
NEW TRAILER: BEHIND THE CANDELABRA
I thought this was only being shown on HBO. Looks like it got an upgraaaaaaaaaaaade and is hitting the multiplexes on 7th June. Looks fun and fabulous and I want to see it - even if it does mess with my Michael Douglas/Basic Instinct fantasy. Just the thought of him in that jumper in the club…*spafs*
WHAT POSES THE BIGGEST THREAT TO 2NE1'S WORLD...
A ) The association with Will.I.Am B ) CL’s solo career Apparently we can expect to hear her first single ‘Who’s Next?’ on 28th May. She’s coming for those wigs girls, are y’all ready?

WHAT HAPPENED TO GIACOMO FERRERI?
He is one of our favourite porn stars of all time but only made a meaty handful of clips. We want to know what happened to him and why he stopped. If you know or have any info tell us and we’ll blow you a kiss.
NEW MUSIC: SIA - 'LOVED ME BACK TO LIFE'
Hurrah, Sia’s knocked out a ‘Rihanna’ hit and kept it for herself. Will the new album be low key quirky pop or mega bucks, mega production ‘I’m a pop star and I’m ready for my close up’?
NEW MUSIC: RICA SHAY - 'MODEL (CLICK CLICK CLICK)
We got a taster earlier this year and now just before I go hit it up down the tanning salon here is Rica Shay’s ‘Model’ in full and free!!!! GET IT! GIMME FIERCE LIKE A TIGER! Oh you have to go to his Soundcloud to hear it. Enjoy! And gurl, read our interview here.
BUSTED! BEYONCE CONTINUES COPYING OTHERS'...
FOLLOW THE BACK BUILDING ON FACEBOOK AND TWITTER. I love RuPaul. I still remember the first time I saw her in some magazine on the back of the school bus - I was taken aback. The blonde hair. Those legs. Those dresses??! All sickening, darling! So, as with anyone I love, when it comes to interview them, I want it to be a piece I can be proud of. Plus, like anyone who has been in the game over 20...
COMING SATURDAY: OUR INTERVIEW WITH RUPAUL
‘If you want an International Drag Race y’all are going to have to speak to the Government. We want to do all of that shit but it is made very hard by the Government trying to get visas and all that bullshit.’
NEW MUSIC: JENNIFER LOPEZ FEAT. PITBULL
The shade continues. It’s only been just over 48 hours since Mariah released ‘#Beautiful’, and BAM JLo is already back getting hunty. Mariah has gone for old school RnB, JLO has gone for the tried and tested RedOne. Which do you prefer? JLo or Mariah? WHAT’S THAT, MARIAH?
SIA WRITES MORE FOR BEYONCE
Sounds like Sia is doing a couple of tracks for Beyonce. There’s the H&M ad one and now there’s ‘Rise Up’ for B’s new movie EPIC. Hit-Boy is on production. Should be interesting.
COMING SOON: OUR INTERVIEW WITH RUPAUL
‘My goal in life is to just have a good fucking time and enjoy myself. If people find inspiration in what I’m doing then, ‘Right on!’ I’ve got to get through this life myself and find something that is going to get me out of the house. I am inspired by laughter, peace, joy and love.’
ALEXIS KNOX: HER HAIR IS FULL OF SECRETS
When people ask what The Back Building is about, I usually say ‘Sex and Music’. But now, after this week we get to throw Fashion into the mix. We’ve had interviews with one of our favourite up and coming male models Christopher Camplin, the creative brand strategist that is Nik Thakkar and now super stylist Alexis Knox. Alexis styles arguably two of The X Factor’s coolest...
NEW MUSIC: MARIAH CAREY & MIGUEL - '#BEAUTIFUL'
Am living for this. Not sure it’ll be a UK smash exactly but on this warm sunny Bank Holiday, it’s exactly what we need. I can almost see her back in that corn field…now on with the album.
NEW MUSIC: LAURYN HILL - 'NEUROTIC SOCIETY'
Why rush her when it sounds like this?! Ugh. I have given up hope.
WANNA HEAD OUTBACK WITH BRENT CORRIGAN?
Did you catch our explosive interview with Brent Corrigan from earlier this year? He talks about changing his name for Falcon, how he ‘didn’t exist’ to Erik Rhodes (‘except when Falcon hired him to fuck me’) and what advice he would offer to aspiring porn stars… Read it in full here.
NEW MUSIC: THE SATURDAYS VS B*WITCHED
This may not mean much to those outside the UK but B*Witched are back and the song is really good! Barbarellas? All is forgiven… The Saturdays are also back with a new song called ‘Gentleman’. Do you reckon it will follow the success of ‘What About Us’. Which track do you prefer? Click here for The Saturdays track.
NEW MUSIC: VANESSA HUDGENS VS YLA - '$$$EX'
There’s now a video for one of our favourite songs of 2013. But if Vanessa really wants to get rid of the Disney tag, she needs to try harder. Like maybe turning up to the video shoot.
ZACHARY QUINTO GETS MORE WORK AFTER COMING OUT
After seeing Star Trek on Friday, our Zachary Quinto obsession has reached new heights so it’s nice hearing this. “I haven’t stopped working, I’ve only worked more since I came out…” What’s your excuse now, Rupert Everett?
NIK THAKKAR: HIS HAIR IS FULL OF SECRETS
FOLLOW THE BACK BUILDING: FACEBOOK/TWITTER When I came back from my travels last year I realised I no longer wanted to be working a desk job, 9-5. No, I wanted to do a bunch of stuff all at the same time - it appealed to my melodramatic nature. Whenever I meet someone who feels the same I ask them ‘So what exactly do you say you do?’ My favourite answer so far has been ‘I...
CHER SINGS WITH HER MUM!
Been singing to Cher all day today and just found this - her singing with her mother on Ellen from the other day. Well I say singing but…Cher misses her cue, fluffs the beginning and the pair mime the whole way through. Lolz.
NEW MUSIC: PET SHOP BOYS - 'AXIS'
THIS IS EVERYTHING. PS Read our interview with Neil and Chris here.
Christopher Camplin: His Hair Is Full Of Secrets

And you’re lying there naked while the man himself brushes your pubes into shape with a comb. Surreal? Scary? Sexual? All of the above? Now imagine this is your first fashion shoot. Welcome to Christopher Camplin’s crazy introduction to the world of modelling. But...

NEW MUSIC: JESSIE WARE - 'LOVE THY WILL BE DONE'
Wow, inspired cover. Takes me back to listening to Martika on cassette in my best friend’s room back in the early 90s. ♥
WILL THIS BE THE SPRING BREAKERS THAT DOESN'T SUCK...
NEW MUSIC: SHYSTIE 'DOPPELGANGER'
After hooking up with Azealia Banks on the Fantasea mixtape, Shystie has had a change of heart. Who can blame her - although perhaps she goes a little too hard.
NEW MUSIC: JANELLE MONAE FEAT. ERYKAH BADU...
Glad this lived up to it’s potential, unlike another record I am so disappointed in, I am not even going to mention.
THAT'S THE HOTNESS

NEW (BUT MAYBE OLD) MUSIC FROM KELIS
WHO IS THE GREATEST ON THE GREAT GATSBY?
I used to make YouTube clips like this for my artists when I worked for Universal. It was the bane of my life as I had to do Photoshop to make the image, then use panels on YouTube to hyperlink track names. Anyway that’s not very interesting. What IS interesting is this new sampler for the new Great Gatsby soundtrack. By now we all know it features Beyonce doing Wino with Andre 3000,...
COME JOIN US ON FACEBOOK, WE'RE ABOUT TO HIT 300!
NEW VIDEO: AZEALIA BANKS - 'YUNG RAPUNXEL'
Azeaalia Banks has had an entire career of peaks and lows, fan adoration and hatred, critical acclaim and being written off. All within twelve months. Impressive.
